Get Pristine And Versatile Sound Reproduction With The Adam Audio A8X Near/Midfield Studio Monitor

The Adam Audio 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 Adam AudioA8X can play very low registers with a powerful punch, and the greatest possible precision. The 150 Watt PWN 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.
