Adam A8X

Near-Field Monitors


    A History of Excellence: A- and SX-Series

    The A5 and the A7, our critically acclaimed models, have won a string of awards and received four dozen glowing reviews in the worlds top magazines. They were equipped with the ADAM proprietary Accelerating Ribbon Technology and quickly became the benchmark for nearfield monitoring at a relatively low price point, while the high end S-Series could be found in major studios around the world.

    ADAM introduced a new top line of studio monitors, the SX-Series, at the Prolight & Sound (Frankfurt, Germany) and at the AES (New York, USA) in 2009. Now ADAM Audio proudly presents a similar evolution to the A series, the AX series. The new A5X and A7X are joined by two new models, the A3X and A8X. All models of the new AX-Series now profit from the technological improvements found in ADAM's top line monitors.

    The New Models: AX-Series

    The changes made to the A5X and the A7X are not simply developments but a fundamental revision of the A-Series. ADAM Audio took all aspects of the performance of the original A-Series and overhauled and improved them.

    One of the main improvements of the top line monitors SX-Series, the X-ART tweeter, now replaces the ART tweeter in the new AX versions. The X-ART tweeter features an even higher efficiency and maximum sound pressure level as well as a frequency response up to 50kHz. All woofers and amplifiers have also been reengineered from scratch, featuring larger voice-coils and amps with twice the power for higher linear excursions and more output. Last but not least, the cabinets have been redesigned, all models sport two bass reflex ports.

    Finally, two completely new models complement the AX-Series. The A3X is now ADAMs smallest monitor ever, and the larger A8X opens the door to midfield monitoring and is the top of the AX line.


    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.

    Amplifiers / 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.
