Active Subwoofer

adam sub8

Small In Size, Big In PowerThe ADAM Audio is a compact but powerful subwoofer which extends the low frequency capabilities of any nearfield monitoring set up all the way down to 30Hz. Featuring an 8.5” with a 1.5” voice coil powered by a 160W ICE amplifier which stays at low heat whilst being pushed at high levels, perfect for handling large amounts of power throughout longer sessions.

On the front panel you’ll find two motorized controls that allow you to adjust the input level and crossover frequency levels, these can also be controlled using the included wireless remote, so you can find the sweet spot from your exact listening position. Made for smaller areas of up to 20 square meters, the Sub8 makes a perfect match to go with the ADAM Audio A-Series and the S2V nearfield monitors.

adam sub8

Years Of ResearchWith years of extensive research and experience behind them, ADAM Audio's custom driver technology proves itself with innovations like their X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter.

Based on a groundbreaking 1960s invention, the Heil Air Motion Transformer was one of the main influences for what eventually became ADAM Audio.

The X-ART tweeter became crucial to ADAM's renowned transparent, high-definition sound; and at the heart ADAM Audio’s design and development from there on.
