ADAM Audio A3X Studio Monitor
A 4.5” basket driver handles the lower registers. The diaphragm is made from carbon fiber, a material that is very light but very stiff and therefore capable of delivering coloring-free sound. Two built-in 25 Watt amplifiers power each of the drivers directly.
A very handy and exclusive technology found in the two smaller AX monitors is the Stereolink. This is accomplished by a pair of additional RCA connections that allow for a bypass of the second stereo channel to the other speaker.
This new technology connects two A3X speakers in such a manner to allow the user the option to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speaker’s gain control. This makes the A3X a natural for “mixer-less” desktop applications, where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.
The front of the A3X sports dual ports for surprisingly low frequency response, down to 60Hz. The front panel also has power and gain controls. The rear panel includes a tweeter gain control as well as balanced XLR jacks and unbalanced RCA jacks, allowing for greater connection flexibility. There are also two M6 6mm metric screw threads for stand/wall mounting.
