Product Description

With its power and radiation characteristics, the brand A8X is suitable for both nearfield and midfield monitoring. With a price/performance ratio that could hardly be better, this monitor is a perfect entry into these monitoring fields.

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 minimize 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.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I Love My Adams"
Overall: I am primarily a Rap/HipHop Producer, I make Beats, Record Vocals and Mix & Master. I started out with a set of the KRK 5's gen 1, then i added a set of the yahmaha 5's, then i added a set of Gen 2 KRK rokit 8's, and now i have the A8X's. there was a transitional period for me when i made the switch from the rokit 8's to these. the amount of detail in the sound is awsome, it's not a pleasuring type thing, but more what u need to hear. the ribbon tweeters deff help not fatigue your ears over long sessions, i use my adams 7 days a week 10-14 hrs a day and my mixes are the same threw the whole day. my current setup is the A8X's and the yahmaha 5's, in between the 2 sets, i feel pretty much set. i recommend these monitors for sure, there are many options at this price point, but you will have to search outside of guitar center/zzounds, but these monitors are A+++ and just to clarify on the "Port Noise" rumor, the only time i get the port noise is when my bass isnt mixed yet and is too loud, so basically if you get the noise, its because your not doing something right.
Style of Music: Rap/R&B/Pop/Electro

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
