Description

The Adam A8X Active Nearfield Monitor is a 2-way Bi-amplified monitor with 8.5″ inch woofer. The most powerful of Adam’s AX Series of Speakers, the Adam A8X is a bi-amplified studio reference monitor built to a high specification. With its power and radiation characteristics, the A8X is suitable for both nearfield and midfield monitoring.

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 minimise 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.

Amplification and 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.
