The ADAM A5X-Sub8 Bundle is a 2.1, 3-way, matched SPL system with a 8" sub woofer, 5.5" woofers and X-Art ribbon tweeters.

The original X-ART folded ribbon tweeter is handmade in Berlin to the exacting standards and precision for which German engineering is known. The A5X/Sub8 bundle combines this precision in the mids and highs with the Sub8’s mid-field SPL, bass extension and EMOTION. This matched desktop bundle is now available at a $350 discount.

With its power and radiation characteristics, the ADAM A8X is suitable for both nearfield and midfield monitoring. With a price/performance ratio that could hardly be better, this monitor is a perfect entry into these monitoring fields.

The A8X is equipped with the X-ART tweeter and a large, 8.5”, midwoofer; a combination that adds both a very deep and yet very tight bass response to the unsurpassed reproduction qualities of the ADAM proprietary tweeter.

CABINET- AND BASS REFLEX-CONSTRUCTION

Like the other AX-Series models, the upper corners of the A8X are slanted to minimize reflections. The very large, double bass reflex tubes on the front have been specifically designed to perfectly match the midwoofer with its large voice coil.

AMPLIFICATION AND CONTROLS

With a 50W A/B amplifier for the tweeter and a 150W PWM amplifier for the midwoofer, the A8X has power in abundance and is the brawny monitor of the AX-Series.

On the rear panel are several controls: a gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for the high and low frequencies. There are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors on the rear panel of the speaker, which allow the A8X to be used in almost any application.

ADAM SUB8

The ADAM Sub8 is a compact yet powerful subwoofer designed to extend the low end of any near field monitoring system. It houses an 8” woofer with a large 50mm voice coil and is driven by a 160W ICE power amp. The front baffle features two motorized knobs that allow the end user to tailor input level and crossover frequency settings. These knobs can be controlled with an included wireless remote control, enabling the user to optimize its settings without leaving the ideal listening position. The unit also provides an onboard 2.1 bass management system.
