The Adam Sub8 is an accurate natural sounding active subwoofer for the studio. Perfect companion to any of the Adam X series monitors. The 8.5 inch driver on the Sub8 is powered by a 160 ICE amplifier. One outstanding feature of the Sub8 is its low heat generation especially when used at high loudness levels. It also features an 85Hz high-pass filter that can be engaged to adhere to Dolby theatre standards. The Adam Sub8 has balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors.

      • Adam Sub8 PRODUCT FEATURES:

        The Sub8 is a small yet powerful subwoofer designed to extend the low frequency capabilities of any nearfield monitoring system down to 30Hz.

        It houses a robust 8.5" woofer with a 1.5" voice coil driven by a 160W ICE power amplifier. This amp combines low heat generation with high performance to handle maximum power levels, even during long mix sessions.

        The front baffle features two motorized knobs that let you tailor input level and crossover frequency settings. These settings can also be controlled via the included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize your sound reproduction from your ideal listening position.

        The Sub8 is designed for smaller rooms up to 20 square meters. It is an ideal match for the ADAM AX-Series and the S1X and S2X nearfield monitors.

        Panel / Controls

        All subwoofers feature a level control (-60dB to +6dB), phase switch (180°) and a variable upper frequency control (50-150Hz). For the satellite outputs, an 85Hz high pass filter can be switched in to block frequencies below 85Hz so satellite speakers can meet the Dolby® recommendations for theater sound and also to relieve the satellites from the lower frequencies. In addition, you can either switch on/off the subwoofer manually or use the option of automatically powering up the subwoofer whenever it receives a signal (‚signal-on/ continuous').

        All subwoofers feature both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input/output connectors and comprehensive control options that allow for adapting to different room acoustics and requirements.
