Adam Audio ADAM A8X

The A8X adds to the AX-Series as a unique model because its power and radiation characteristics allow it to be used as both a nearfield and midfield monitor. It represents a particularly attractive entry-level model for midfield monitoring which offers transparent reproduction of higher frequencies, clear mids and an excellent transient response.

The extra large, front-positioned bass reflex ports are perfectly matched with the bass/midrange driver that has a 1.5″ voice coil. Thus the A8X can play very low registers with a powerful punch, and the greatest possible precision. The 150 Watt PWM amplifier for the midrange speakers in conjunction with the 50 Watt A/B tweeter amp enable the A8X to generate impressive maximum sound pressure levels of 120dB per pair at one meter.

Features & Benefits

  • X-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin    
  • Allows longer operation with fewer signs of fatigue
  • Their breakup is prevented by the folded diaphragms, distortions are effectively reduced to a minimum
  •  Advanced dynamic range due to acoustically effective diaphragm surface that is 2.5 times bigger (compared to a classic tweeter according to the piston principle)
  • The air velocity ratio of 4:1 during the sound generation by folded X-ART membrane    
  • Direct, fast response in the high-range even with complex transients
  • Ultra-light but extremely dimensionally stable woofer material (Carbon/Rohacell/Glass fiber)    
  • Excellent transient response even at high sound levels without breakup of the diaphragm
  • Vertical 2-way system with 8.5” woofer    
  • High resolution of the stereo image
  • Spacious bass reflex ports on the front    
  • Bass reproduction with very low compression
  • Allows positioning close to walls
  • Highly efficient PWM amplifier for the woofer coupled with an A/B amplifier for X-ART tweeter    
  • Low-distortion amplification at both low and high volume levels
  • Linear frequency response of 38 Hz to 50 kHz    
  • Unbiased reproduction in a very wide frequency band
  • Maximum peak sound pressure per pair in 1 m ≥ 120 dB    
  • Powerful, compression-free sound reproduction even at very high sound levels
  • Simple, stepless room acoustic adjustments over tweeter gain, low and high shelf filters    
  • Allows optimal adaptation to acoustically difficult listening environments
  • Analog XLR and RCA inputs    
  • Optimized for balanced and unbalanced line signals
  • Acoustically optimized cabinet geometry    
  • Reduction of unwanted reflections on the cabinets
  • Directional sound radiation in vertical plane    
  • Reduction of early reflections on the surfaces of, e.g. mixing consoles, desks, etc.
  • Volume control and on/off switch on the front    
  • Very easy to use
  • 2 years warranty with optional extension to 3 years with the registration of the product    
  • Full repair service if required for 5 years
