S5X: Main Monitors a notch above

Both Versions of the S5X models have been designed for medium and large sized control rooms in which the precision and the power of the sound production are essential. The main task of these monitors is to bring the extraordinary sound quality all ADAM monitors are famous for into areas of higher dynamics and higher sound pressure levels.


The S5X-H features two 12” HexaCone woofers, a 7.5” HexaCone midwoofer unit, an X-ART midrange and an X-ART tweeter. This combination is capable of filling large control rooms with breathtaking realism and stunning dynamic performance.

New Option: External Amplifier Unit EA-SX

For the models S2X, S3X, S4X and S5X we offer the option of anexternal amp unit in order to make flush mounting of these monitors easier.


The upper three drivers are each powered by a 250 W discretePWM amplifier while two 500 W digital amp drive the two 12” woofers.

The X-ART midrange

The most famous and highly acclaimed feature of all ADAM monitors is the proprietary Accelerating Ribbon Technology tweeters. An exclusive feature of the main monitors is the application of this technology to the midrange as well.

In accordance to the X-ART tweeters, also the midrange units now feature the improved X-ART. Compared to their ART predecessors, these midranges show improvements namely in higher efficiencies and higher maximum sound pressure levels.
