ADAM Audio's Sub8 Subwoofer
Designed for smaller control rooms up to 20 square meters, the ADAM Audio Sub8 is a compact yet powerful subwoofer that extends the low-frequency range of any nearfield monitoring system down to 28Hz. The Sub8 houses a robust 8.5" woofer with a 1.5" voice coil driven by a 160W ICE Power amplifier which combines low heat generation with high performance to handle maximum power levels during marathon sessions. The front baffle is fitted with two motorized knobs that let you tweak the input level and crossover frequency settings — which can also be controlled via the included wireless remote — to optimize your monitor setup from your preferred listening position. The Sub8 pairs perfectly with ADAM Audio's AX Series nearfield monitors.
ADAM Audio: elevating the state of the art
From its 1999 launch in Berlin, ADAM Audio has built a solid reputation among the pro audio cognoscente. knows that a superior speaker system has superior components, and this is one area where the company has a distinct edge. With years of R&D behind each proprietary driver, ADAM Audio's custom driver technology expresses itself in breakthroughs such as their X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter, which is based on a groundbreaking 1960s invention, the Heil Air Motion Transformer — and in fact, was the main impetus for the formation of ADAM Audio. The X-ART tweeter became the key to ADAM's signature transparent, high-definition sound; and the core development of ADAM’s proprietary designs going forward.
Embracing, exploiting, and working with modern materials has allowed ADAM Audio to formulate loudspeaker components that continually elevate the state of the art in studio monitor design. Materials such as rare-earth magnets and high-strength diaphragm foils have increased reliability, enhanced performance, and made possible new driver geometry. As compared with conventional driver technology, Adam drivers deliver optimized radiation characteristics, lower distortion, and higher efficiency. Along with installations in a growing number of top studios, ADAM Audio's monitor range has garnered rave reviews from audio experts and recording engineers worldwide. If you're considering an upgrade to world-class monitoring, you'll be in good company with ADAM Audio monitors.
