    ADAM Audio S3V Active Midfield Studio Reference Monitors

    Notify me when this product is available:

    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. With 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.


    S-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin and manufactured to the tightest tolerances in ADAM Audio’s history:
    • Allows more extended operation with fewer signs of fatigue
    • The folded diaphragms prevent their breakup, 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 aluminium:

    • It 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 that 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 the 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
