The Manhattan by Adam Professional Audio comprises five 6" S1X compact near-field speakers and one 12" Sub12 subwoofer that are level-matched to ensure deeper bass, tonal consistency, clear midrange, and accurate spatial imaging.

With 1550W of combined power, this 2-way active-speaker 5.1 surround system is designed to deliver reference-quality sound for broadcast, film mixing, and multimedia applications in rooms where space is limited.

The Manhattan accepts balanced XLR & unbalanced RCA inputs. It features room-adaptive controls including variable crossover, phase, subwoofer & tweeter levels, and high- / low-shelving filters.


  • S1X - 250W 6" Two-Way Active Near-Field Monitor (Single)
    The single S1X - 250W 6" Two-Way Active Near-Field Monitor by Adam Professional Audio is offered as an accurate reference-quality speaker intended for small project studios, broadcast vans, and 5.1 surround installations. With 250W of amplification housed in a compact cabinet, this monitor produces high volume levels in contrast to its size.

    Hand-made in Germany and featuring the company's proprietary X-ART technology, the 2" ribbon tweeter is highly efficient at high SPLs and delivers precise transient response with a wide frequency response up to 50 kHz. It is powered by a 50W A/B amplifier with ultra-low distortion, specially designed to match the capabilities of the X-ART tweeter.

    The 6" HexaCone woofer features a honeycomb Nomex structure and a Kevlar coating to resist deformation, ensuring maximum strength & minimum weight for a wide dynamic response with no self-resonance in the audible range. It is powered by a highly efficient (> 90%) 200W PWM amplifier designed to be light and compact.

    A variety of control options are available for adjusting the monitor's performance to the room acoustics. The rear panel houses a volume control (±10 dB), a tweeter-level control (±4 dB), a high-shelving filter (> 6 kHz, ±6 dB), and a low-shelving filter (< 150 Hz, ±6 dB) for fine-tuning to your listening preferences.

    The S1X's cabinet is built with rounded edges and a durable plastic coating to provide extra protection for everyday use in the studio or remote location.

  • Sub12 - 300W 12" Active Subwoofer

It provides a frequency response of 22-150Hz and offers rear-panel gain control and filter adjustment. The Sub12 reflex tubes fire downwards, avoiding noise due to the size and construction ventilation of the unit. Powered by an internal 300W RMS amplifier, the Sub12 offers both XLR and RCA I/O connectors for compatibility with almost any system.
