ADAM Audio’s Sub12 Subwoofer
Designed for small-to-midsized control rooms, the ADAM Audio Sub12 is a powerful subwoofer that extends the low-frequency range of any nearfield or midfield monitoring system down to 22Hz. The Sub12 houses a robust 12″ extended-cone-travel woofer with a 2″ voice coil driven by a 200W PWM power amplifier which combines low heat generation with high performance to handle maximum power levels during marathon sessions. The rear panel is fitted with two knobs that let you tweak the input level and crossover frequency settings to optimize your monitor setup from your preferred listening position. An additional output lets you cascade as many subwoofers as required for any monitoring setup.
ADAM Audio: elevating the state of the art
From its 1999 launch in Berlin, ADAM Audio has built a solid reputation among the pro audio cognoscente. Sweetwater knows that a superior speaker system has superior components, and this is one area where the company has a distinct edge. With years of R&D behind each proprietary driver, ADAM Audio’s custom driver technology expresses itself in breakthroughs such as their X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter, which is based on a groundbreaking 1960s invention, the Heil Air Motion Transformer — and in fact, was the main impetus for the formation of ADAM Audio. The X-ART tweeter became the key to ADAM’s signature transparent, high-definition sound; and the core development of ADAM’s proprietary designs going forward.
Embracing, exploiting, and working with modern materials has allowed ADAM Audio to formulate loudspeaker components that continually elevate the state of the art in studio monitor design. Materials such as rare-earth magnets and high-strength diaphragm foils have increased reliability, enhanced performance, and made possible new driver geometry. As compared with conventional driver technology, Adam drivers deliver optimized radiation characteristics, lower distortion, and higher efficiency. Along with installations in a growing number of top studios, ADAM Audio’s monitor range has garnered rave reviews from audio experts and recording engineers worldwide. If you’re considering an upgrade to world-class monitoring, you’ll be in good company with ADAM Audio monitors.
