Adam SUB-F 1x8" 150W Powered Studio Subwoofer
In 2009, ADAM introduced the brand new X-ART technology, a refined version of ART to improve what many considered to be the benchmark in tweeter technology. In 2010 and 2011, ADAM brought to market the lower price AX series of monitors, including the A7X, successor to the A7, bringing the acclaimed ADAM sound to more professional engineers than ever before. Now, in 2012, ADAM takes that experience to the next level and proudly presents a new even more affordable entry line of studio monitors.
The Brand New F Series: The ART of Affordability
Consisting of two nearfield monitors and a dedicated subwoofer, the F Series is designed in the tradition of the legendary ADAM professional monitors. The aim is to focus on the essence of ADAM speakers at a new, lower price point.
The F5 and F7 near field monitors feature a newly designed version of the ADAM proprietary Accelerating Ribbon Technology. These tweeters reproduce the high frequencies with the very airiness, clarity, and detail ADAM is famous for. The high performance woofers are designed to seamlessly integrate with the tweeters performance. Wherever deeper and more powerful bass response is required, the SubF subwoofer comes into play. It has been specifically designed to match the F monitors and will perfectly complement them in any set up.
All their subwoofers are dedicated to ADAM Audio's primary goal: the best possible authentic reproduction of music. For their subwoofers, this means combining power and precision while simultaneously avoiding "impressive" bass volume at the cost of accuracy. Their task is it to complement the highly acclaimed lucidity and transparency of the ADAM monitors in the lower and lowest frequencies.
The SubF is a small yet powerful subwoofer, housing a robust 8" woofer with an 1.5" voice coil. It is driven by a 150W (rms) ICE Power amp. This amp stays cool while handling maximum power levels, even if they are sustained.
The SubF is an ideal match for both the F5 and the F7 monitors wherever a deeper and more powerful bass response is required.
Several controls to adjust the subwoofer are located on the rear panel: a volume knob (-8 to +6dB), a control for the crossover frequency, as well as a phase switch.
