About this item



The super-compact dimensions of the Genelec 1238DFM allow it to partner with an accompanying subwoofer to deliver main monitor performance in rooms where space is at a real premium.

Neutral and uncolored

Ideal for music recording, post-production, broadcast, and mastering, the 1238DF is the perfect blend of adaptable amplification, contemporary technology, and classic design. With its controlled directivity, it offers all the neutrality and uncolored performance of a large format Genelec monitor – but with a remote rack-mounting RAM-L amplification module that enables its amazingly modest and slimline cabinet size.

Configure, calibrate and control

The 1238DF is designed to partner with a complementary Genelec smart subwoofer and integrates closely with our GLM software via which the whole system can be configured and calibrated for your listening environment, compensating for detrimental room influences to create a truly optimized monitoring solution. From simple stereo to complex immersive formats, the 1238DF and GLM combine seamlessly to help you produce mixes with exceptional translation to other rooms and systems.
