The Ones


Genelec, the leader in active monitoring loudspeaker technology, is pleased to announce that following a hugely successful VIP launch at Metropolis Studios in London, ‘The Ones’ family of compact three-way coaxial loudspeakers will be making their European trade show debut at High End Munich. The Ones will be taking centre stage on the Genelec booth, and visitors are invited to experience for themselves just how revolutionary their ‘Ultimate Point Source’ performance really is.

The Ones range comprises three models - the 8351, which has already established itself as the new standard in audio monitoring - and the newer, more compact 8331 and 8341 models. The Ones’ Ultimate Point Source design utilises concealed dual woofers and the acclaimed Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) driver, to overcome the off-axis colouration associated with traditional loudspeaker designs.

Each model can be orientated horizontally or vertically using an adjustable IsoPod base for vibration isolation, with absolutely no compromise in performance, offering maximum flexibility to fit all interior requirements. While the 8331 and 8341 both echo the visionary design of the 8351 in form and function, including a frequency response extending beyond 40 kHz, the two newer models have been entirely re- engineered to meet the challenges of their ultra-compact dimensions (just 299mm x 189mm x 212mm for the 8331, and 350mm x 237mm x 243mm for the 8341).

The Ones are also powerful: the short-term maximum output capacities for each of the models is 104 dB SPL for the 8331 (at 1m), and 110 dB SPL for the 8341 (at 1m), with accuracy better than 1.5 dB, and respective frequency responses starting at 45 Hz and 38 Hz (-6 dB) and extending beyond 40 kHz both for the analogue and digital inputs. Finally, with The Ones, Ultimate Point Source meets ultimate flexibility with Smart Active Monitoring (SAM™), the ground-breaking Genelec technology based on Genelec Loudspeaker Manager (GLM™) software for PC and Mac, incorporating AutoCal™. GLM & AutoCal make it simple to create the optimal loudspeaker set-up in any type of space by automatically compensating for any detrimental room influences and creating the optimum listening environment – even in challenging rooms.

To emphasise the broad range of Genelec’s product portfolio, visitors to the booth will also be able to see and hear the company’s full home audio range, comprising the G Series loudspeakers and F Series subwoofers. The G One, Two and Three models have all recently been upgraded to ‘B’ versions, which now feature a switched-mode power supply and Class D amplifiers for increased power output and SPL, as well as improved portability. Other improvements include the addition of two extra rear panel switches: one to reduce the level by 10dB, and one to control the Intelligent Signal Sensing (ISS™) feature, which switches the speaker to a low- power ‘sleep’ mode when not being used for a period of time.
