This manual addresses the setup and use of the 8240A, 8250A,
8351A and 8260A SAM monitors in stand-alone mode without
the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager GLM™ and the proprietary
Genelec monitor control network. Use with the GLM™ is described in the GLM™ System Operating Manual.
System
Genelec 8240A, 8250A, 8351A and 8260A are designed for
precise monitoring of 24 bit/192 kHz AES/EBU digital audio signal or line level analog audio signal. They are fully compatible
with Genelec Loudspeaker Manager GLM™ and the proprietary
Genelec monitor control network, and Genelec 7260A, 7270A
and 7271A SAM Subwoofers, but can also be used independently of these. The 8240A, 8250A, 8351A and 8260A feature
high SPL output, low colouration and broad bandwidth in a small
enclosure size. They are suitable for a wide variety of tasks,
such as near field monitoring, mobile vans, broadcast and TV
control rooms, multichannel sound systems and home studios.
The Minimum Diffraction Enclosure™ (MDE™), advanced Directivity Control Waveguide™ (DCW™) and Minimum Diffraction Coaxial (MDC™) technologies provide excellent frequency
balance even in difficult acoustic environments.
Amplifiers
The amplifier unit is mounted in the rear of the monitor enclosure.
The unit incorporates special circuitry for driver thermal overload
protection. Variable input sensitivity allows accurate level matching to console output section.
Setting Up the GLM™ Control Network
Although the 8240A, 8250A, 8351A and 8260A can be used
without the GLM™ software and control network, they only reach
their full potential when set up and calibrated using the GLM™
software. The setup is fast and consists of the following steps:

engineers ear in normal working position. The microphone is
a part of the GLM User Kit.
Run the microphone cable to the microphone input in the
GLM Adapter device.
Download GLM software at the Genelec web site (www.
genelec.com). Install the GLM software.
Follow the GLM software instructions to measure and set
up your monitors.
If you plan to not use a computer for controlling the monitors, use the GLM software to write the setting into the monitors (“Store the Settings”).
Using the Monitors in Stand-Alone Mode
When the monitors are not connected to a Genelec monitor control network, they operate in the stand-alone mode. However, settings made with the Genelec Loudspeaker Manager software can
be saved into each monitor and applied even when the network
is disconnected by setting switch 1 “STORED/MANUAL CONTROL” on switch group 2 of each monitor to position “STORED.”
All issues concerning use with the network are explained in detail
in the System Operating Manual provided with the GLM™ Loudspeaker Manager software kit.
Connections
Each monitor is supplied with a mains cable, one 5 m GLM network cable and an operating manual. Before connecting up, ensure that the mains switch is off.

“MAINS INPUT” Connector
Connect the mains supply to this connector.
“DIGITAL IN AES/EBU” Connector
Use this female XLR connector for AES/EBU formatted digital
audio input signals. This input is selected automatically when a
valid digital audio signal is present, and overrides the analog input.
Depending on the digital hardware, transmission of a 192 kHz
sample rate is achieved using a double speed, single channel/
cable interface. This is called dual-wire mode. In this case one
cable per channel is used and no channel selection is required.
Dual-wire mode is automatically detected by the input stage.
If the digital source device has a volume fader that controls the
digital level, it may be advantageous to lower the level control
either on the computer interface or on the monitor’s back panel
controls, which in turn will force the use of more of the digital [bit]
resolution in the volume control.
level is +7.0 dBu RMS on models 8240A and 8250A and +22.0
dBu RMS on models 8351A and 8260A. When A/D converter
input clip occurs the front panel light turns momentarily red, indicating the overload condition.
“CONTROL NETWORK” Connectors
Use these RJ-45 sockets to connect the monitor to the proprietary Genelec Loudspeaker Manager™ (GLM™) network only.
This connector is not Ethernet LAN compatible. Do not connect
to Ethernet LAN.
“12 V REMOTE” Connector (8260A only)
You can set up remote controlled powering up and down of the
8260A with 12 V voltage connected to this connector. The minimum current needed to actuate this function is 70 mA.
Front Panel Warning Light
Normally the light on the front panel of a SAM monitor is green,
indicating that the monitor is in normal operational mode.
The overload light (red) is activated by several events:
If the digital inputs are used, all audio outputs are referenced to 0
dBFS (digital Full Scale, the largest level that may be represented in the AES/EBU signal). These monitors produce 100 dB SPL
at 1 meter in free space for a digital input signal of –30 dB FS.
“DIGITAL THRU AES/EBU” Connector
This male XLR carries an unaltered copy of the digital signal fed
into the “DIGITAL IN AES/EBU” connector. It can be used for
daisy-chaining up to four monitors together.
“ANALOG IN” Connector
Use this connector for analog audio signals. The maximum input
s exceeding the maximum input range of the analog input
s the digital input level is less than 0.1 dB from the digital full
scale
s exceeding the output capacity of the power amplifier
(clipping in the power amplifier) and thermal
overload of the power amplifier or drivers (thermal
protection has activated)
s an error is detected in the AES/EBU audio data
If a red warning light appears, turn the analog source down! If
the levels are already modest and a digital signal is being used,

able, as it minimises acoustical cancellation problems around the
crossover frequency.
Mounting Considerations
Align the Monitors Correctly
Place the monitors so that their acoustic axes are aimed towards
the listening position (see Figure 3). Vertical placement is prefer4
Maintain Symmetry
Check that the monitors are placed symmetrically and at an
equal distance from the listening position. If possible, place the
system so that the listening position is on the centerline of the
room and the monitors are placed at an equal distance from the
centerline (See Figure 4).
Minimise Reflections
Acoustic reflections from objects close to the monitors like desks,
cabinets, computer monitors etc. can cause unwanted colouration and blurring of the sound image. These can be minimised by
placing the monitor clear of reflective surfaces. For instance, putting the monitors on stands behind and above the mixing console
usually gives a better result than placing them on the meter bridge.
Symmetrical positioning of the reflective objects is also important
in order to maintain a balanced soundstage (See Figure 4).
Figure 7. System Level rotary control
Low Frequency Cancellations
In general, when a monitor’s front baffle is more than 0.3 meters
(1 foot) away from the wall behind the monitor, a reflection from
this wall can cause a cancellation of low frequencies and hence
reduction of bass output. Distances between 1 and 2.2 meters
(3-7 ft.) should be avoided (See Figure 5).
As a rule of thumb, the lower the low frequency cut-off the further
away the monitor must be placed from the wall in order to avoid
this phenomenon.
Distances to the ceiling and other walls may be shorter than the
distance to the wall behind a monitor. Reflections from these surfaces may be important and should also be considered
Operating Environment
These monitors are designed for indoor use only. The permissable ambient temperature is 15-35 degrees Celsius (50-95°F) and
permissable relative humidity between 20% and 80%. Humidity condensation on the product is not allowed during use. If the
product has been stored or transported in a cool environment
and then taken into a warm room, it must be allowed to warm up
completely before connecting to mains power.
Figure 8. Switch Group 1
can be used for securing the monitor to its base. Do not use this
thread for mounting the monitor on a microphone stand which
has a 3/8” UNC thread. A wide variety of ceiling and wall mounts
are available through your Genelec dealer.
Setting the Input Sensitivity
The monitor level sensitivity functions for both analog and digital
input. The sensitivity can be matched by adjusting the rotary Level control together with the System Level switches located in the
switch group 2. (switches 6 and 7). The switches provide attenuation levels of -10 dB (sw. 6 ON), -20 dB (sw. 7 ON) and -30 dB (both
switches ON) The combined attenuation ranges from 0 to -42 dB.
Functions On Switch Group 1
(Tone Controls)
Sufficient cooling for the amplifier and functioning of the reflex
port must be ensured if the monitor is installed in a restricted
space such as a cabinet, or integrated into a wall structure. The
surroundings of the monitor must always be open to the listening
room with a minimum clearance of 5 centimeters (2”) behind,
above and on both sides of the monitor. The space adjacent to
the monitor must either be ventilated or sufficiently large to dissipate heat so that the ambient temperature does not rise above
35 degrees Celsius (95°F).
Switch group 1 (the upper switch group) comprises the tone
controls that can adjust the frequency response of the system in
stand-alone mode to match the acoustic environment.
Mounting Options
The vibration insulating Isolation Positioner/Decoupler™ (IsoPod™) table stand allows tilting of the monitor for correct alignment of the acoustic axis. The stand can be attached to three
mounting points allowing vertical and symmetrical horizontal
positioning.
The controls are labelled “TREBLE TILT”, “BASS TILT”, “BASS
ROLL-OFF” and “DESKTOP”. The factory settings for these controls are all “OFF” to give a flat anechoic response. Note that these
controls have no effect when switch 1 “STORED/MANUAL CONTROL” on switch group 2 is set to “STORED” or when the monitor
is connected to the Genelec monitor control network.
Genelec 8240A, 8250A, 8351A and 8260A can be fitted to König
& Meyer monitor mounts on two sets of M6x10 mm threaded
holes on the back of the enclosure. On the base of the 8240A
and 8250A enclosure is an M10x10 mm threaded hole which
The use of an acoustic measurement system is recommended to
analyze the effects of the adjustments, however, careful listening
with suitable test recordings can also lead to good results if a test
system is not available. Start adjustment by setting all switches
Please note that the GLM software allows a much more versatile
and precise set of controls to be used and supports the fully
automatic system alignment feature, the Genelec AutoCal. Use
the tone control switches on the monitor only if GLM is not available for the system calibration.

to “OFF” position. Measure or listen systematically through the
different combinations of settings to find the best frequency balance. See Table 1 for some typical settings.
Bass Roll-Off Control
Bass Roll-Off control (switches 1 and 2) attenuates its output
near the cut-off frequency. Attenuation levels of -2 dB (sw. 1
ON), -4 dB (sw. 2 ON) or -6 dB (both switches ON) can be selected.
Bass Tilt Control
This selects the audio channel(s) available on the AES/EBU
cable to be reproduced by the monitor. Turning both switches on
reproduces the sum of the two channels on the AES/EBU cable.
Turning both switches off mutes the monitor. When two channels
are selected, 6 dB of attenuation is automatically applied to avoid
overloading the monitor.
If the AES/EBU cable is operated in dual-wire mode, the monitor detects this situation automatically and the channel selection
switches have no effect.
Driver Mute
These two switches allow you to mute the treble driver (marking
“TW”) and bass driver (marking “WF”) independently. This may
be useful to diagnose if a transducer is faulty.
The Bass Tilt control switches (swiches 3 and 4) offer three attenuation levels for the bass response below 800 Hz, usually
necessary when the monitors are placed near room boundaries.
The attenuation levels are -2 dB, -4 dB and -6 dB.
On the 8351A and 8260A the marking “TW” is replaced with
“COAX” and this switch mutes both the treble and midrange of
the coaxial driver unit.
Desktop Low Frequency Control
These switches allow scaling down of the monitor output. The
signal sent to the “Thru” output connector is not affected. The
switches are additive, for example, “–30 dB” attenuation is
achieved by turning on the “–10 dB” and “–20 dB” switches. The
effect of these switches is combined with the effect of the rotary
level adjustment control. This results in total possible attenuation
of 42 dB, 30 dB by the system level switches and another 12 dB
by the rotary control.
The desktop low frequency control (switch 5) attenuates the bass
frequencies around 160 Hz by 4 dB. This feature is designed to
compensate for the boost often occurring at this frequency range
when the monitor is placed upon a meter bridge, table or similar
reflective surface.
Treble Tilt Control
Treble Tilt control (switches 6 and 7) allows adjusting the treble
response above 5 kHz by +2 dB, -2 dB or -4 dB, which can be
used for correcting an excessively bright or dull sounding system
or to compensate for high frequency level loss if the monitor is
placed behind a screen.
Functions On Switch Group 2
Stored / Manual Ctrl
“MANUAL CTRL” refers to controlling the monitor using the controls on the monitor’s back panel. The “STORED” refers to using
settings stored inside the memory of the monitor. These settings
are made using the GLM and the GLM Control Network. There
is additional functionality compared to that offered by the room
response correction switches on the back panel.
