Adam S3H Active Midfield Studio Reference Monitors (Pair)


The Adam S3H studio monitors feature 2 x 7-inch low frequency drivers, a 4-inch hybrid carbon composite mid-frequency driver and the precision S-ART tweeter. The S3H speakers offer absolute precision for critical listening. Specifically designed for horizontal placement, the key feature difference between the S3H and S3V, is that the S3H has the two LF divers with separate 500 watt amps, and the S3V has one 9-inch driver. The S3H also boasts a slightly better frequency response too. Like all S series monitors from Adam, the S3H has custom DSP for setting crossovers internally, and fine-tuning the speakers to your room. The S3H are an active studio reference speaker designed to function as mid-field monitors, and are front-ported.

Coming soon. Pre-orders only.


    • Adam S3H Features:

      S-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin and manufactured to the tightest tolerances in ADAM Audio’s history:    
      Allows longer operation with fewer signs of fatigue
      Their breakup is prevented by the folded diaphragms, distortions are effectively reduced to a minimum
      Advanced dynamic range due to acoustically effective diaphragm surface that is 2.5 times bigger (compared to a classic tweeter according to the piston principle)

      The air velocity ratio of 4:1 during the sound generation by folded S-ART membrane:    
      Direct, fast response in the high-range even with complex transients

      Newly designed HPS waveguide, milled from a solid block of aluminum:    
      Makes dispersion more consistent and imaging more stable over a wider area
      Reduction of early reflections on the surfaces of, e.g. mixing consoles, desks, etc.

      New midrange driver with one-piece hybrid dome/cone (DCH) design:    
      Offering the sonic advantages of both driver types, with minimal partial resonances
      Partly responsible for the excellent mid-range dispersion characteristics of the S Series, due to improved integration with the treble driver

      Custom-built Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers:    
      Accurate audio reproduction at an extremely high resolution thanks to the precision-designed relationship between its low weight, optimized inner damping and highly rigid HexaCone membrane, in conjunction with a basket which has been developed to eliminate unwanted resonance and distortion

      Custom-designed Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA):    
      Allows the voice coil a maximum excursion three times greater than that offered by previous designs, with an extended, symmetrical magnetic field ensuring linear, low-distortion operation
      Power compression effects are prevented by an intelligent self-cooling system

      Horizontal 3-way system with 2 x 7” woofers and 1 x 4” DCH midrange:  
      Very high resolution of the stereo image

      Spacious bass reflex ports on the front:    
      Bass reproduction with very low compression
      Allows positioning close to walls

      Highly efficient PWM ICE Power amplifiers for the woofers and midrange driver coupled with an A/B amplifier for S-ART tweeter:    
      Low-distortion amplification at both low and high volume levels

      Linear frequency response of 32 Hz to 50 kHz:    
      Unbiased reproduction in a wide frequency band

      Maximum peak sound pressure per pair in 1 m ≥ 126 dB:    
      Powerful, compression-free sound reproduction even at very high sound levels

      Custom DSP engine:    
      Perfect crossovers for optimal frequency response and maximum dynamic range
      EQ options and presets for in-room optimization
      Limiter-based amp protection, AES3 digital inputs and board connectors for future expansion options, together with a USB connector for software upgrades and computer-based control

      Analog XLR input:    
      Optimized for balanced line signals

      Acoustically optimized and weightily constructed cabinets:    
      Reduction of susceptibility to vibrations and unwanted edge-diffraction effect

      2 years warranty with optional extension to 3 years with the registration of the product:
      Full repair service if required for 5 years
