OVERVIEW

A studio quality monitor with a tiny footprint and the acclaimed ADAM sound quality.

The ADAM A3X 2-way studio monitor is ADAM Audio's smallest monitor to date, making it perfectly suited for audio environments where space is limited but sound must not be. The A3X delivers acclaimed ADAM sound quality from a small footprint by using an X-ART tweeter for the higher frequencies guaranteeing crystal-clear music reproduction.

The A3X monitor's 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 25W amplifiers power each of the drivers directly.

Stereolink
A very handy and exclusive technology found in the 2 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 2 ADAM A3X speakers allowing you to control the system's stereo volume from either speaker's gain control. The A3X is a natural for mixerless desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.

Controls and Connectors
The front of the ADAM A3X sports dual ports for surprisingly low frequency response down to 60Hz. The front panel is armed with power and gain controls. The rear panel includes a tweeter gain control as well as balanced (XLR) jacks and unbalanced (RCA) jacks, giving the ADAM A3X monitor greater connection flexibility.

FEATURES
  • Crystal clear music reproduction
  • Suited for all environments where space is limited
  • Dual ports provide low frequency response down to 60Hz
  • Two built-in 25-Watt amplifiers
  • Tweeter gain control
  • Balanced (XLR) jacks and unbalanced (RCA) jacks

Get an affordable compact studio monitor with a big sound.

    Comments about ADAM Audio A3X 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

    Of all the monitors available for testing with keyboards, the A3X monitors had the best quality in lows, mid, and highs. They blew away the rest. I purchased four of them and only wish I could have gotten four of the A8X to blow the walls down. Love them, Love them, Love them.

    Little body, big sound!

    Comments about ADAM Audio A3X 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

    I recommend them if you dont have a sub. They bump! I do think they are oberpriced!
    They feature a great selection of inputs. And dats cool!
    I give these monitors a step down only because i think they lack clarity. These little things do have power, and they are accurate, but compared to my alesis MKs they lack abit of a higher end crisp. I read in the manual that I must break them in and allow for room acclimation, so well see. I've been their daddy for only three weeks...
    I wish they were a bit cleaner on the highs.

    Changes the game for small monitors

    By Rodney Spaulding

    from Austin, Texas

    Comments about ADAM Audio A3X 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

    I think an 8 for an overall is very good. The professional engineer will be surpised at the depth and clarity of such a compact speaker and the beginner will not know the difference but will get started on the right path with a great sounding pair of speakers.
    Features: I rate a 7 simply because there is a lack of frequency room attenuation on these monitors.Surprising for higher end monitors. The FOCAL CMS 3 (the only true competition for this monitor) has the ability to cut/boost bass or high end to adjust for the room. However, these are front ported and meant to be very near field which eliminates a great deal of the room. XLR Balanced out and RCA unbalanced. There is a 'stereo link' mode which allows you to use one monitor as master volume to assure even volume distribution... however it can only be used with the RCA unbalanced ins. 4" driver, standard ADAM ribbon tweeter found on all other models.
    I rate these a 8 for quality. Build is solid. Sound is very surprising for the size of speaker. Low end is very present and clear. For a professional monitor you will be pleased at the clarity of your audio. Monitors are a funny thing, countless reviewers of any monitor, at any price range claim theirs is the 'best' in some way. 90% of all monitor reviews are done by musicians with little experience listening to a wide range of monitors, listening in an untreated bedroom environment without a critical ear or critical demands placed on their project (meaning no paying client to please). I currently have these ADAMS next to JBL LSR6328p which I have used for the past 4 years as well as Dynaudio BM5a in a balanced room. I can say that the ADAM quality is a great compliment to the other speakers and at lower volumes completely holds it own. These are best for smaller rooms.
    Solid investment. Great price for a pair of genuinely usuable monitors is a great bargain

    Das ist gut (This is good)

    By Selfdude/aka the Grammar Police

    from Tuscaloosa, Alabama

    Comments about ADAM Audio A3X 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

    Slowly but surely I have been upgrading my studio. I was looking for a solution that would give me highly detailed mid-range response without blowing me away with excessive bass or volume. These little monitors fit the bill very nicely. To me hearing bass guitars and kicks is all about the mid range. If you are seeking mixes that translate well from headphones to car stereos these are perfect. So much detail and clarity. A joy to listen to and with the stereolink volume control very easy to setup.

    Comments about ADAM Audio A3X 2-Way Studio Monitor (Single):

    Wow What a crazy littlemonitor we have here. absolutely brilliant. Its absolutely tiny but the punch it adds its truly amazing. It gives you the crispiest of tops and mids and even reaches down to the lows without hassle. They pack a great punch and are great for mixing in a smaller room. but if you wanna mix rock, these are definately the monitor for you
