With power and dispersion characteristics that allow use as both a nearfield and a midfield monitor, the ADAM Audio A8X brings unique capabilities to ADAM’s AX range. An active vertical 2-way studio monitor, the A8X provides an attractive entree into midfield monitoring with transparent high-frequency reproduction, clear midrange, and superior transient response. The A8X’s large, front-baffle bass reflex ports are precisely matched with the bass/midrange driver, giving the speaker powerful, yet controlled low-end punch. The woofer’s 150W PWM amplifier, in combination with the 50W Class AB tweeter amp, enables a pair of A8Xs to achieve an impressive maximum SPL of 120dB at one meter. Engineered in Berlin to the strictest tolerances, ADAM’s AX series monitors feature cutting-edge technology, including the company’s renowned, handcrafted X-ART accelerated ribbon tweeter. With its compelling price/performance ratio, the A8X brings ADAM Audio’s world-class monitor performance to commercial recording and broadcast facilities and well-equipped home studios alike.
