    ADAM Audio S5V Active Studio Reference Main Monitors

    Notify me when this product is available:

    The Adam S5V active studio reference monitors are a 3-way front-ported design, optimised for vertical placement in medium to large-sized control rooms and spaces. The S5V are an extraordinarily accurate and transparent speaker. They feature Adam’s S-ART tweeter, a 4-inch carbon composite mid-frequency driver with an MPS waveguide and a 12-inch woofer. The S series is Adam’s flagship range of professional audio monitors, and they all feature digital and analog inputs with custom DSP for managing your speaker settings. Hand-crafted in Germany, the S5V is for critical listening environments.



    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 and MPS waveguides, 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 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 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 12” woofer and 1 x 4” DCH midrange:    

    • Very high resolution of the stereo image and extremely wide stereo base

    Spacious bass reflex ports on the front:

    • Bass reproduction with very low compression

    • Allows positioning close to walls

    Highly efficient PWM ICE Power amplifiers:

    • Low-distortion amplification at both low and high volume levels

    Linear frequency response of 26 Hz to 50 kHz:

    • Unbiased reproduction in a wide frequency band

    Maximum peak sound pressure per pair in 1 m ≥ 128 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


    • German Handmade Precision S-ART Tweeter with HPS Waveguide

    • 4" Dome / Cone Hybrid (Carbon Composite) with MPS Waveguide
