Product Description

The Adam Audio A3X powered studio monitor features the much acclaimed ADAM sound quality by using the X-ART tweeter for the higher frequencies, a guarantee for crystal clear music reproduction. The tiny footprint of the A3X monitor makes it perfectly suited for all environments where space is limited but sound shouldn’t be constricted.

Controls and Connectors
Two built-in 25 watt amplifiers power the 4.5 inch drivers directly. The diaphragm is made from carbon fiber, a material that is very light but very stiff and therefore capable of delivering colouring-free sound. The front of the A3X sports dual ports for surprising low frequency response down to 60Hz as well as power and gain controls. The rear panel includes balanced (XLR) jacks, unbalanced (RCA) jacks, and a tweeter gain.

The A3X employs a Stereolink. This new technology connects two A3X speakers in such a manner as to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speakers gain control. This makes the A3X a natural for mixer-less desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.

The Stereolink is accomplished by a pair of additional RCA connections that allow for a bypass of the second stereo channel to the other speaker.

With the development of new materials, it has become possible for Adam to significantly improve the highly acclaimed ART technology. The new X-ART (‘X’ for eXtended frequency response) features an even higher degree of efficiency, higher sound pressure levels, and another extension of the frequency response.

  • The X-ART tweeter exhibits a 4 dB higher efficiency and a 3 dB higher SPL. In addition, the frequency response can extend up to 50 kHz (at -3 dB point).
  • The X-ART midrange unit shines with a 2 dB higher efficiency and a 3 dB higher SPL.
The result simply is astounding: a clarity, airiness and precision in the high and mid frequencies that was not possible before. With the X-ART technology, Adam reinforces it’s commitment to offer the best transducer systems currently available at any price.

Best for its size and price

Product Review

I had many different types of monitors in the past and my mixes translate the best across different devices/media using these speakers. I highly recommend these if you live in an apartment and/or just enjoy producing a low/mid volumes for longer time

I love these things

Product Review

These took my productions and mixing to the next level. The clarity you get in the mids & highs are far superior than what you get with the an entry level monitor. I have a small space so the A3X’s were just right for me along with the 7”sub. Recently a friend came over to hear them and the first thing he said was “I’m getting me a pair of Adams”.

Product Review

Great - nothing else needs to be said

Review: Leon from New York, NY Submitted: 6/8/2010

Incredible sound in a small package

Solid, heavy. Feels like it will last a long time

The clarity yet deep low end within a compact enclosure. I currently do not use a subwoofer and am very pleased with the performance

As simple as 1-2-3. The only thing I had to buy was a splitter to feed in the audio from my Computer. So everyone knows it includes ONE power cable and ONE gold Plated Audio cable inside the box.

Clear, sharp and accurate yet not harsh. The low end isn't ignored either and only the most bass hungry person will require a subwoofer.

I've used it for about 2 weeks and haven't had a single problem. Unless you count the fact that I'm spoiled by competitors.

Your general opinion of this product.

Highly recommend the brand, solid construction and not a single problem. Even better it's actually made in Germany NOT China!
