Manufacturer's Description from ADAM

 

The most powerful AX monitor

With its power and radiation characteristics, the brand new 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: a licence to thrill.

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.

About Manufacturer

ADAM studio monitors are state-of-the-art, no compromise speakers intended for audio engineers who are interested in the truest possible reproduction of their recordings. ADAM monitors have been constructed with one design objective only: to achieve the most realistic sound quality for each speaker in the line. Groundbreaking innovation in electro-acoustic transducers, painstaking design and superior materials are the cornerstones of ADAM Technology. The authentic reproduction of recordings of acoustical events (a frequently discussed and subjective issue) is our yardstick in the unconditional search for the finest product possible. To achieve this goal we combine years of our own musical and acoustic experience and with feedback from the critical 'golden ears' of our professional customers, and double-check the results with the most advanced measurement techniques in order to ensure the finest sound reproduction available at any price. ADAM Audio produces a complete range of both passive and active monitoring systems to suit any given studio environment, from the smallest home/project studios to the most demanding professional environments and applications.
