Genelec looks to its heritage

The 1235A has been designed for large music, film or postproduction installations

Genelec has taken the sound and heritage of its 1035 main monitor, launched in 1989, to develop the 1235A Smart Active Monitor. The new iteration provides high-performance 96kHz processing and is said to offer users the ability to adapt to any space through its tight integration with Genelec’s GLM calibration software. The 1235A has been designed for large music, film or postproduction installations that demand high SPL and neutral, stable imaging.

The 1235A shares many of its predecessor’s characteristics – according to Genelec, the new monitor provides “outstanding frequency response both on- and off-axis, superb directivity and a wide and stable sweet spot that can be trusted by multiple listeners in the room”. It has a short-term SPL of 130dB and a low-frequency extension down to 29Hz. The 1235A features dual-performance 15-inch drivers, dual 5-inch midrange drivers and a low-distortion 1-inch throat compression driver.

The monitor’s remote-mountable RAM XL electronics module contains power amplification, crossovers and processing, with Class-D amplification delivering 2,000W, 800W and 250W for the LF, MF and HF drivers, respectively. Input connectivity is provided via both analogue and AES/EBU digital formats – along with an AES/EBU digital output – and the updated design of the 1235 is also said to deliver a flatter on-axis frequency response and improved noise performance than was possible with the original 1035.

In brief, the Finnish manufacturer is also offering a RAW aluminium finish to a selection of its most popular models in its Studio and AV ranges. The RAW versions have been designed to create an even more environmentally friendly loudspeaker and are available on all two-way designs, including the 8020, 8030 and 8040 nearfield studio monitors, the 4020, 4030 and 4040 installation loudspeakers and the 4420 and 4430 Smart IP loudspeakers.
