Genelec coined "active monitor" in 1978 with its first loudspeaker, the S30. Precision tone controls, driver unit protection circuitry, advanced amplifier topologies, and a proprietary HF ribbon driver. Directivity Control Waveguide on mid driver or tweeter, on every product, focuses energy at crossover from driver to driver for smooth transitions and greater imaging. Porting System developed from subwoofers for efficiency-ported box with spiral enclosure as big as the box itself, long flaring tube in rear for airflow.
In 1995, Genelec made speaker boxes with aluminum, beveled edges for smoother, splatter-less sound. Smart active monitoring [SAM], daisy-chained to the Genelec hub, set-up up to 30 speakers in software. Compensation file in mic.
