Midfield studio monitors with acclaimed Adam X-ART technology.

The S4X-H from Adam is an evolutionary development from famous and highly acclaimed S4A studio monitors. Like the S4A, the S4X-H is primarily designed for use in medium size control rooms, but given their excessive power, the S4X-H are also capable of working in larger environments. Because both models in the S4X series have identical tweeters and midrange drivers handling frequencies above 350 Hz, any combination of either model will integrate perfectly in a 5.1 or 7.1 installation.

The S4X-H midfield monitor combines the X-ART tweeter with a 5œ HexaCone midrange and two redeveloped 9œ HexaCone woofers. Each of the woofers and midrange drivers are driven by a 250 W ICE module. To allow the X-ART tweeter to extend to its highest frequencies, it is combined with a unique ADAM Audio A/B amplifier. This unique amplifier has ultra low distortion and an immense internal bandwidth of more than 1MHz. Combine this amplifier with the X-ART tweeter and you get a fascinating sound that is effortless and of highest resolution.

Improperly designed larger monitors are always at risk at compromising the overall sound with bass reproduction that is too intense. As in all ADAM Audio designed speakers, both versions of the S4X have been designed to combine both the power and volume of the bass (28 Hz at -3 dB point) with the highest possible precision. Combine this with the transparent high and midrange frequencies of the S4X and this will give an engineer a new quality level of control and performance for larger rooms.
