The A5X from Adam Professional Audio is a professional-quality studio monitor speaker that delivers high-quality audio from a compact design. The speaker features a 5.5" carbon fiber/rohacell/glass fiber midwoofer and an X-ART tweeter to deliver crisp, natural audio with a wide frequency response. Each driver is powered by its own 50W amplifier for strong, distortion-free performance. Dual bass ports on the front of the cabinet help to extend the bass response.

The monitor has XLR and RCA input connectors, allowing you to connect to virtually any audio system or device you encounter. A unique Stereolink connector, consisting of 2 RCA jacks, allows you to bypass a second stereo channel to a second speaker. This lets you connect a pair of A5X speakers together and control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speaker's gain knob. This is ideal for small, mixer-free applications where volume needs to be adjusted easily. In addition to the main gain control on the front panel, the A5X also features a tweeter gain control and a set of high and low shelving controls on the rear panel.

      Comments about Adam Professional Audio A5X 5.5" 100W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

      I've only had these a few days, and they replaced some far larger (and much older) M-Audio DSM3's that I liked very much for their involving sound. They sit aside my dual 30" monitors, which might be a bit far apart for the best result, but that never seemed to make a difference to my M-Audio's. Signal is supplied through a Xonar Essence card.

      My first reaction upon hearing them was: clinical. They are probably quite flat, response-wise, but that's not always an enjoyable result. They also seem extremely revealing - perhaps too much so. Any room character of the recording is easy heard, and less than well recorded vocals come off sounding somewhat like they are in a can or a cave.

      I've been playing with equalization to try and tailor a sound more to my liking, but I'm not there yet. Better, but I doubt I'm going to get where I want to be.

      Imaging is excellent, and their size is nice (compact). I hope their rather clinical nature opens up a bit with more use.

        Comments about Adam Professional Audio A5X 5.5" 100W Active 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

        Built like a tank and with a very clean sound these monitors fit perfectly in my cramped office where I do video production. I was searching for a good set of monitor speakers for video editing and a professional recording engineer recommended the Adam line. I'm not disappointed.
