The single, vertical S3X-V - 550W 9" Three-Way Active Mid-Field Studio Monitor by Adam Professional Audio is offered as an accurate reference-quality speaker intended for studio control rooms. Capable of delivering 550W of power with SPLs over 124 dB, it features a 9" bass speaker, a 4.5" midrange speaker for enhanced transparency, and a ribbon tweeter that are vertically aligned. This design produces a balanced and detailed sound with clear stereo imaging, which vibrantly reveals the nuances in the source material, while ensuring hours of fatigue-free listening during extended sessions.
Hand-made in Germany and featuring the company's proprietary X-ART technology, the 2" ribbon tweeter is remarkably 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.
Made from HexaCone with a honeycomb Nomex structure and Kevlar coating, the woofer and the midrange driver are built to resist deformation, and deliver high dynamics with no self-resonance in the audible range. These two speakers are powered by two highly efficient (> 90%) 250W PWM amplifiers designed to be light and compact.
A variety of control options are available for adjusting the monitor's performance to the room acoustics. The front panel houses coarse & fine input-sensitivity controls, a low-frequency equalizer, a low-shelf filter, a tweeter-gain control, and a high-shelf filter for fine-tuning to your listening preferences. It also features a Power On / Standby switch and an LED to alert you in case of an overload – the protective circuit will prevent speaker damage.
The S3X-V's cabinet is built with rounded edges and a durable plastic coating that provides extra protection for everyday use in the studio.
