Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

Hello,

Please look at the product page of these products, and you can find the differences:

G Four: https://www.genelec.com/home-speakers/g-series-active-speakers/g-four-active-speaker

8340A: https://www.genelec.com/studio-monitors/sam-compact-studio-monitors/8340a-sam-studio-monitor

 

If you look at the specs, you can notice that 8340A goes down to lower frequencies, and has higher capability of playing louder (SPL). G Four is using AB -amplifier technology, and 8340A is using D-class amplifiers.

The greatest benefit of 8340A vs G Four is the SAM-capability, which means it is possible to to use GLM with the 8340A to calibrate the monitors to the room. With G Four it is needed to use manually the DIP-switches on the back of the monitor to adapt the monitor to the room.
 

You can read more about GLM from this link: https://www.genelec.com/glm

If you need more information, I recommend to visit your nearest Genelec dealer who are glad to assist you locally. If you don't have a dealer near you, you can also contact your nearest distributor. You can find them from this link: https://www.genelec.com/where-buy

Thank you a lot! AB class amplifying implemented in G4 is working only  for tweeter or for the bass unit too?
