A significant evolution of ADAM Audio’s critically acclaimed S-Series, the new SX-Series reference monitors feature completely redesigned transducers, drivers, and electronics to enable the most transparent reproduction possible.
All ADAM SX-Series monitors feature the new X-ART tweeter, which provides 4dB higher efficiency, an increased maximum sound pressure level of 3dB, and an expanded frequency response of up to 50kHz.
Other new components include an ultra-low distortion broadband A/B amplifier with 1MHz internal bandwidth, perfectly matched to the X-ART tweeter for a natural, uncolored sound with high resolution, and new Hexacone™ woofers with more linear excursion to optimize efficiency and accuracy.
The SX-Series consists of six different models ranging from small nearfield monitors to larger midfield monitors. To facilitate operation in any control room situation, the top-line S4X and S3X models are available in both vertical (S4X-V/S3X-V) and horizontal (S4X-H/S3X-H) versions.
Ideal for medium and larger sized rooms, the S4X-H midfield monitor combines the new X-ART tweeter with a 5″ HexaCone midrange driver and two redeveloped 9″ HexaCone woofers. Designed for vertical installation, the S4X-V also incorporates the X-ART tweeter, with two 5″ Hexacone drivers and a newly developed 12″ Hexacone woofer optimized electronically for a bass-reflex enclosure.
The S3X-V features the newly developed 4″ HexaCone midrange driver and 9″ HexaCone woofer with the X-ART tweeter to reveal the most complex nuances of any program material with an open, transparent response.
Already a popular choice for leading studios worldwide, the S3X-H employs a 4″ HexaCone midrange driver for more detail and musical coherence in the critical midrange frequencies, along with two 7″ Hexacone woofers that produce a deep, tight bass within the same frequency and radiation pattern.
The compact S2X nearfield monitor utilizes a HexaCone 7″, X-ART tweeter and A/B amplifier combination to produce a powerful balanced sound with surprisingly deep bass for a smaller enclosure.
Embodying high quality sound in an ultra-compact cabinet, the S1X monitor also combines the X-ART tweeter, A/B amplifier and HexaCone™ woofer driven by premium PWM amplifiers for crystal clear resolution and tight, precise low- frequency reproduction.
The front panel of SX-Series monitors feature sophisticated controls that allow the user to adapt the speakers to the sound room with great precision. All SX-models (except the S1X) can be optionally retrofitted with a 24-bit/192kHz D/A Converter featuring an AES/EBU (XLR) and SPDIF (RCA) inputs as well as an R/L/Mono switch.
