ADAM Audio A7X Active Studio Monitor
The predecessor to the A7X, the A7, became the most famous of all ADAM monitors in a very short time. Not only has it been reviewed over three dozen times with outstanding results, it has also received numerous awards. The A7 quickly gained mass appeal, praised in many of the world’s largest internet forums. Still today, the A7 are the reference monitors in many smaller studios. With the A7X, ADAM Audio proudly presents the evolution of a legend. It takes everything that made the A7 such an outstanding speaker to a new level.
The ADAM A7X is the successor to the well renowned A7. These the most celebrated of all ADAM monitors became rapidly popular – reviewed countless times to receive the highest plaudits, it has won multiple awards and is the staple reference monitor in most small studios, as well as being a firm favourite of online forums.
The first of many distinctions between the ADAM A7X and its predecessor is its X-ART tweeter. Extending as far as 50kHz, its frequency response has been vastly upgraded (the ‘X’ stands for ‘eXtended frequency response’). Improvements to the Accelerating Ribbon Technology are chiefly responsible for this. The X-ART tweeter also has a higher efficiency and higher maximum sound pressure levels.
A dedicated amplifier is given to each driver. The X-ART tweeter has a 50W A/B amp while the 7” mid-woofer is powered by a 100W PWM amp. This mid-woofer integrates impeccably with lower frequencies. The amp drives a redesigned and larger voice coil (1.5”) with twice the power of its forerunner.
The ADAM A7X’s front panel features a power switch and volume knob which retains level independently from the on/off switch. Several additional controls sit on the monitor’s rear panel including a high frequency (± 4dB) gain and two shelf filters (high and low frequency). Both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors provide excellent compatibility. These features combine to produce exceptional sound and pressure levels with almost distortion-free musical reproduction.
