Adam Audio A8X-Sub12 Studio Monitor Pack

Hear the whole picture with the Adam A8X-Sub12 studio monitor bundle. This package includes a pair of Adam A8X powered studio monitors (the next step up from the legendary Adam A7X), plus a matching Adam Sub12 powered subwoofer to help you monitor bass accurately. Adding the sub allows you to hear what you're really capturing -- and allows your main monitors to work more efficiently to reproduce the critical midrange and highs.

The Adam Audio A8X is the big brother to the A7X in more ways than a number. While they share the same legendary X-ART tweeter with all of the detail and imaging it is known for, the A8X adds low-end extension and clean SPL to 120 dB.

The Adam Audio A8X/Sub12 matched bundle extends the low end to depths that will fill any control room with massive SPL EMOTION the talent will love and with the accuracy you expect from Adam Audio.

It's about lower bass, not louder bass. Learn how a subwoofer helps you make better mixes:


Adam Audio A8X

With its power and radiation characteristics, the 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 license 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.

Adam Audio Sub12

ADAM Audio subwoofers are designed with one primary goal in mind: achieving absolute accuracy and an authentic natural sound in the process of music reproduction. This means combining exceptional bass power with precision and clarity in every subwoofer. These elements are the perfect partners to complement the highly acclaimed clarity and transparency of ADAM monitors in the lower and lowest frequencies. All subwoofers feature both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input/output connectors and comprehensive control options that allow for adapting to different room acoustics and requirements.

All subwoofers feature a level control (-60dB to +6dB), phase switch (180*) and a variable upper frequency control (50-150Hz). For the satellite outputs, an 85Hz high pass filter can be switched in to block frequencies below 85Hz so satellite speakers can meet the Dolby(R) recommendations for theater sound and also to relieve the satellites from the lower frequencies. In addition, you can either switch on/off the subwoofer manually or use the option of automatically powering up the subwoofer whenever it receives a signal (,signal-on/ continuous').

The Sub12 is a powerful subwoofer designed to extend the low frequency capabilities of any near or midfield monitoring system down to 22Hz.

A sturdy special woofer with extended cone travel and a heavy-duty coil have been optimized for accurate reproduction from a bass reflex enclosure. The down-firing bass reflex tube avoids intrusive ventilation noise because of its generous size and shape. The PWM amplifier produces over 90% efficiency and can handle critical passages without overheating for long periods of time. An additional output allows you to cascade as many subwoofers as needed.

The Sub12 subwoofer provides a precise combination of low cutoff frequency (-3dB at 22Hz) and an undistorted high sound pressure level (115dB SPL at 1m).

Note: Shown with IsoAcoustics speaker stands, sold separately.

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.

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.
