The S5X-V is a four-way vertically oriented studio monitor incorporating ADAM’s proprietary X-ART folded ribbon tweeter and midrange unit, which provide amazingly life-like, detailed imaging. It houses a 12” HexaCone subwoofer drive unit that has a large 3” voice coil and a heavy magnet system. The combination of this big motor with the outstanding stiffness of the cone enable the reproduction of signals down to 25Hz while remaining stable and tight. The 7.5” midwoofer uses the same honey-comb core coated with Kevlar on both sides, allowing for an extremely precise and uncolored response. The upper three drivers are each powered by a 250W discrete PWM amplifier, and a 500W digital amp powers the 12” subwoofer. The S5X-V is designed to be used as either a midfield or main monitor in the most demanding professional recording, mixing, and surround studio applications. Highly sophisticated control panel Both versions of the S5X incorporate the new, very refined control panel that captivates the user with the variety and precision of its controls. Apart from the standby-button, there are two controls for the input sensitivity, two for the bass section and two more for the high frequencies.
