ADAM Audio S3V Active Midfield Studio Reference Monitors (Pair)

The Adam S3V active 3-way studio reference monitors with 9-inch bass drivers, that have been designed specifically for vertical placement. Whilst a 3-way mid-field design, the S3V could also be used as near field monitors in smaller spaces too. The S3V have outstanding frequency response, extending from 32 Hz to 50 kHz. The S series of professional speakers from Adam, feature their custom designed DSP system for tuning the monitors and setting crossovers. Digital and analog inputs, 850 W amplification and a max SPL of 124 dB, the S3V studio monitors will cater to the most demanding critical listening applications.

    • Adam S3V 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 driver:    
      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

      Vertical 3-way system with 1 x 9” woofer 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 amplifier for the woofer 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 ≥ 124 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
