ADAM | A5X | AX SERIES | 2-Way 5.5" & X-ART Tweeter | Studio Nearfield Monitor
The AX-Series from ADAM Audio provides you with a wide range of monitors for different applications. Their excellent price-performance ratio makes them suitable for professional studio applications as well as upscale home recording.
Many technical innovations in ADAM’s high end SX-Series are also used in the AX models. The chamfered upper corners of the sturdy cabinet fronts minimise edge diffraction so that phase cancellation is not an issue. The speaker interior is equipped with a special fleece that prevents disturbing internal resonances as well as ensuring a better bass reflex tuning. The power switch and volume control are easily accessible on the front panel for greater ease of use. The front-firing bass ports are very useful as well, allowing the monitors to be set up closer to a wall if need be.
All models of the AX-Series feature two discrete amplifiers: an A/B amplifier that functions very quickly within its broad frequency range drives the X-ART tweeter. In the A5X, A7X, A8X and A77X monitors, the bass/mid- range woofers are each driven by powerful and highly efficient pulse-width modulated (PWM) amplifiers that do not require additional heat sinks and are more reliable and durable than other amplifiers.
The ‚Tweeter gain‘ function is a part of each AX monitor’s basic configuration and lets you raise or lower the level of the high frequencies by up to 4dB. Beyond that, shelving filters allow further adaptation to room acoustics with the A5X, A7X, A8X and A77X. The low shelf filter allows smooth control of the lower frequencies below 300 Hz from -6 dB to +6 dB, the high shelf EQ is introduced at 2.5 kHz with the same levels from -6 dB to +6 dB.
It goes without saying that all models of the AX-Series are equipped with ADAM’s X-ART tweeter that is handmade in Berlin. The tweeter works according to our proprietary X-ART principle, based on a slim, pleated foil working as the tweeter's diaphragm. The precise transient response and capability of reproducing the finest sonic details make the AX-Series monitors superior working tools.
The A5X is popular among professionals working in television studios and remote broadcast vans. The A5X can also be found in numerous home/project studios around the world. Its open, powerful sound makes the A5X a trustworthy and useful tool for multimedia applications as well.
Like all models of the AX-Series, the A5X is equipped with ADAM‘s proprietary X-ART tweeter. One 5.5“ bass/midrange woofer works below 2.5kHz and is driven by a 1.5“ voice coil and a powerful 50 Watt PWM amplifier. Its acoustic qualities give you a clear picture of the smallest changes in your mix and the sonic results. Despite all that it does, the A5X is not fatiguing in long studio sessions.
The ‘Stereolink’ is a useful feature for desktop DAWs. Two additional input and output jacks for the second stereo channel allow you to control the volume for both monitors using the volume control of only one loudspeaker. The volume control of the other monitor only affects its own volume in order to easily compensate for differences in listening distance. Unlike the typical master-slave configuration, each A5X monitor is fully equipped and can function either as a master or a slave unit.
