ADAM Sub8 Subwoofer

The Sub8 is a small yet deceptively powerful subwoofer designed to extend the low frequency capabilities of any nearfield monitoring system. The Sub8 houses a robust 8.5” woofer with an 1.5” voice coil, and is driven by a 160W ICE Power amp. This amp stays cool while handling maximum power levels, even if they are sustained.

The front baffle features two motorized knobs that let you tailor input level and crossover frequency settings for the best performance in your studio. These knobs can be controlled with an included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize your sound reproduction from your ideal listening position. The Sub8 is an ideal match for ADAM monitors such as the AX-Series, S1X, and S2X. 

These subwoofers are dedicated to ADAM Audio’s primary goal: the best possible authenticity in the reproduction of music. For their subwoofers, this means combining power and precision while simultaneously avoiding “impressive” bass volume at the cost of accuracy. The task is it to complement the highly acclaimed lucidity and transparency of the ADAM monitors in the lower and lowest frequencies.

All subwoofers up to the Sub2100 feature both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) in and output connectors, and numerous controls to adapt to different room acoustics and requirements.


All subwoofers up to the Sub2100 feature a number of controls to adapt to different room acoustics and requirements. All units have a level control that varies from -60dB to +6dB, a phase ±180° switch and variable upper frequency barrier control (50-150Hz), a switchable 85Hz high pass filter for the satellite output. In addition, there is a ‘signal-on/continuous’ switch. This provides the option of automatic power up whenever the subwoofer receives a signal and automatic power off after 15 minutes of no signal.

“I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a top-notch subwoofer.” Tape Op on the Sub12 (Feb/March 2009)
