The speaker has a 5.5" basket woofer with a carbon fiber/Rohacell/glass fiber diaphragm and the acclaimed X-ART tweeter to provide pro-level audio with terrific clarity and a full frequency response.

Carbon Fiber/Rohacell/Glass Fiber Woofer
The speaker has a 5.5" basket woofer with a carbon fiber/Rohacell/glass fiber diaphragm to provide deep bass without unwanted coloration, thanks to the low weight and high rigidity of the diaphragm
X-ART Tweeter
Adam's acclaimed X-ART tweeter delivers ultimate treble precision and clarity
Biamplified Design
The driver is powered by its own Class-A/B 50W RMS (75W Peak) amplifier to provide a strong performance with low distortion

Stereolink
You can connect 2 speakers together with a single cable to share an input source, and give each speaker the capability to control the overall output volume of both speakers by using the volume knob on either speaker. This unique stereolink capability redefines traditional master-slave speaker configurations, because each speaker can be in control. This also allows for more simplified setup and easy setup changes
HF Controls
In addition to main volume controls, the speaker also has a high frequency control that lets you fine-tune the HF levels

    Adam Professional Audio 5 reviews

    ARTist 5 150W 5.5" Active 2-Way Monitor Speaker (Single, White) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding speakers I use these with my Oppo HA-1 Headphone Amplifier, DAC & Pre-Amplifier. The speakers sound amazing from the mids to the high's, basically this is where they really shine at the high's. With the Oppe HA-1 they were a tad bright with some adjustments I got them where I want them. Next will be the ARTist Sub 210W 7 Active Subwoofer. I also have a pair of the 4 Genelec 8020C Active Two-Way Studio Monitors. I think the Adam shine better on the high's but not by to much. The Genelec's are outstanding speakers as well. Also check out how the RIBBON TWEETER is made on YOUTUBE search Adam Audio factory visit Just a very well made speaker just like the Genelec's

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomenal speakers. These speakers might be marketed as studio monitors, but I use them simply for listening pleasure. They are amazing speakers; they have excellent highs (probably the best i've heard), excellent mids, and great bass as well. They are very balanced. They have a very meaty and full sound. They are very easy on the ears as well and you can listen to them for hours without ear fatigue. However, that doesn't mean these speakers are lifeless...these speakers are extremely musical and they can play loud. These speakers will shake a room. I was definitely surprised by how loud these speakers can play and how punchy and powerful the bass is. They can play extremely loud without any distortion. The geat thing about these speakers is that you don't have to play them loud to enjoy them, even when you are playing them at low volume, you don't feel like you are missing anything. They are simply beautiful and great long term investment. The speakers are dead quiet too. It is typical with a lot speakers/studio monitors to emit a hiss sound, but not with these speakers. I would recommend everyone to connect these through XLR if your sound card/source offers that option as that will keep the signal clean and free of any electrical interferences coming from your sound card/source. It's not the speakers' fault, it's the sound card/source. But truly balanced outputs from your source should eleminate that problem and keep the signal clean. You will get the cleanest sound possible and you will drive these speakers to their full potential. I have these speakers hooked up to an Asus Xonar Essence Muses Edtion through XLR and these speakers just sing beautifully. This is as close as I will get to live music :). The speakers are also extremely well built. They feel very sturdy. They are nice and heavy. You can tell they are not fragile. They are built like tanks and made to last. They are also very beautiful. One of the nicest looking monitors around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phenomal speakers. These are marketed as studio monitors, but I use the simply for listening pleasure. They are simply amazing. These speakers produce a beautfiul sound. They are very balanced and detailed. You will hear things in your music you've never heard before. Your music will be presented in a way in which you've never heard before. They have excellent highs (probably the best i've heard), mids, and lows. They are also dead quiet. A lot of studio monitors/speakers produce a hiss sound when nothing is playing, not with these speakers...they are silent. I would highly recommend that you connect them through XLR cables to take advantage of their full potential. These speakers are pricey, but you get what you pay for. Quality is top notch and sound is amazing as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from ARTist 5 review. I placed them around my bed and enjoy them while going to sleep and waking up and taking nap or rest. Superb sound. No sub needed for these babies.
