      ADAM Audio

      Exceptional ADAM speaker sound and technology, in an affordable 5” woofer size.

      ADAM Audio monitors are found in top recording and post production studios all over the world, and now take their extensive knowledge of studio speaker technology and have created a more affordable entry line of monitors. The F5 is the smallest of the near field monitors in the F-series and has been designed for listening environments with somewhat limited space.

      Tweeter
      The F models feature a newly designed version of ADAM’s highly acclaimed ART tweeter. Slightly smaller than the X-ART tweeter, it is the next step in this continuous evolution in tweeter design.

      Midwoofer
      As the name suggests, the F5 sports a 5” woofer made from carbon and paper and a 25mm voice coil. Despite the size of both the woofer as well as the cabinet, the F5 is capable of an astounding deep yet tight bass response.

      Controls
      Several controls to adjust the monitors to the environment are located on the rear panel: two room EQ’s for both the high (>5kHz) and the low (<300Hz) frequencies as well as a volume knob (-∞ to +6dB).

      Features

      • Smaller of the near field monitors in the F-series
      • Designed for listening environments with somewhat limited space
      • 5” Woofer made from carbon and paper and a 25mm voice coil
      • Deep tight bass response

      This is the perfect solution for smaller home studios that need professional monitoring. Order today.

          Comments about ADAM Audio F5 5" Near Field Monitor:

          I auditioned many smaller near field monitors and the ADAM F5's were, by far, the best sounding in this price range and even up to twice that price range (excluding the ADAM F7's). The rep at my local GC allowed me to use my own music, stuff I was very familiar with, to do A/B comparisons to Presonus Eris, Yamaha HS50's & HS80's KRK Rokit 6's & 8's and the ADAM F5's and F7's were (to my ears) more accurate and smoother across the full spectrum. I had a pair of Behringer Truth B2031A monitors that have just been retired... The ADAM F5's were right for my set up due to their size and don't let size fool you - these speakers go down to 52 Hz with a 5" woofer! The Behringer B2031A's with an 8" go to 50 Hz! The highs in the ADAM's are smooth and natural sounding. The ribbon tweeters are hand folded in Germany - even for the F5 and F7 monitors! If you thought ADAM's were beyond your reach, give the F5's a try, you won't look back!

          Comments about ADAM Audio F5 5" Near Field Monitor:

          When I first plugged them in, turned them on, tried to make sound come out of them, nothing happened. Took me a while to figure out that A. I'm an idiot. B. Their power saving feature means that sometimes you have to crank the monitor volume more than you would think to kick them on. My bad. Over all they sound awesome. For really low bass response (if any of you know the MMW song Retirement Song, or later Beastie Boys...you know what I'm sayin) you could use more. But it's a 5 inch woofer so whatever. They could get a little louder without distortion for my taste, but I like loud things. For a small, up and coming project studio, or really anyone who wants super detailed sound, from what I've listened to, I don't know how you could do any better.

          Comments about ADAM Audio F5 5" Near Field Monitor:

          Heard this pair of heaven at NAMM. Am buying immediately. GREAT price and very very little difference to the Adam A5X (mostly in the lows, but I will personally be compensating with a sub). Adam has an unbeatable tweeter design that allows you to hear even the finest detail in your vibrato, tremolo, reverb tails etc. When paired with an ultra flat monitor set like Mackie or Yamaha, your potential for a great mix is just as good as the pros. Also, manufacturer supplied 2 year warranty, no extra charge.
