Hicksville, NY (August 21, 2009)–ADAM Audio’s new SX-Series reference monitors feature completely redesigned transducers, drivers and electronics in an effort to enable the most transparent reproduction possible.
All ADAM SX-Series monitors feature the new X-ART tweeter, which provides 4dB higher efficiency, an increased maximum sound pressure level of 3dB, and an expanded frequency response of up to 50 kHz.
Other new components include an ultra-low distortion broadband A/B amplifier with 1MHz internal bandwidth, matched to the X-ART tweeter, and new Hexacone woofers with more linear excursion to “optimize efficiency and accuracy” according to the manufacturer.
The SX-Series consists of six different models ranging from small nearfield monitors to larger midfield monitors. To facilitate operation in any control room situation, the S4X and S3X models are available in both vertical (S4X-V/S3X-V) and horizontal (S4X-H/S3X-H) versions.
Aimed for medium and larger sized rooms, the S4X-H midfield monitor combines the new X-ART tweeter with a 5″ HexaCone midrange driver and two redeveloped 9″ HexaCone woofers. Designed for vertical installation, the S4X-V also incorporates the X-ART tweeter, with two 5″ Hexacone drivers and a newly developed 12″ Hexacone woofer optimized electronically for a bass-reflex enclosure.
The S3X-V features the newly developed 4″ HexaCone midrange driver and 9″ HexaCone woofer with the X-ART tweeter.
The S3X-H employs a 4″ HexaCone midrange driver along with two 7″ Hexacone woofers
The compact S2X nearfield monitor utilizes a HexaCone 7″, X-ART tweeter and A/B amplifier combination.
The S1X monitor also combines the X-ART tweeter, A/B amplifier and HexaCone woofer driven by PWM amplifiers.
The front panel of SX-Series monitors feature controls that allow the user to adapt the speakers to the sound room. All SX-models (except the S1X) can be optionally retrofitted with a 24 bit/192 kHz D/A Converter featuring an AES/EBU (XLR) and SPDIF (RCA) inputs as well as an R/L/Mono switch.
