Product Description for the Adam S4X 5.1 System - The Brooklyn
Package includes :
4 x ADM-S4XV
1 x ADM-S4XH
1 x ADM-SUB2100
The S4X-V has been designed for vertical installation. This reference monitor features the same X-ART and 6” HexaCone midrange as the S4X-H allowing for almost identical tonal characteristics of both speakers. This allows combinations of the different versions in bigger multi-channel applications without tonal imbalance. Furthermore, the S4X-V features a newly developed 12” HexaCone woofer. This driver, with electronic correction, has been designed for optimal results in a bass-reflex cabinet. An exceptionally long 3” voice coil coupled with a very strong and highly effective magnet system provides for powerful, yet never overemphasized bass reproduction.
The horizontally designed S4X-H midfield monitor combines the X-ART tweeter with a 5" HexaCone midrange driver and two highly developed 9“ HexaCone woofers. A 250 Watt PWM amplifier drives each the woofers and midrange speaker, while the proprietary ADAM A/B amplifier powers the high-frequency range. The A/B amplifier’s minimum distor-tion and broadband features in conjunction with the X-ART tweeter result in a bright, contoured sound with no dynamic stress.
Larger monitors tend to compromise the overall sound with too much bass. Both S4X versions connect power and volume of the lower bass frequencies (the -3 dB point being at 28 Hz) with absolute precision, a clean midrange and effortless, highly precise transient reproduction. This makes accurate control of recorded material possible in larger control rooms.
The S4X-H is designed for medium-sized rooms, although it is able to fill larger rooms with adequate levels because of its power capabilities. Due to their technical specifications which closely follow the recommendations of the IRT (German Institute for Broadcast Technology), supreme sound quality and high reliability, these monitors are particularly suitable for broadcast and TV applications but can also be found in numerous major recording studios.
ADAM Audio subwoofers are designed with one primary goal in mind: Achieving absolute accuracy and an authentic natural sound in the process of music reproduction. This means combining exceptional bass power with precision and clarity in every subwoofer. These elements are the perfect partners to complement the highly acclaimed clarity and transparency of ADAM monitors in the lower and lowest frequencies.
All subwoofers feature both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input/output connectors and comprehensive control options that allow for adapting to different room acoustics and requirements.
Panel / Controls
All subwoofers feature a level control (-60dB to +6dB), phase switch (180°) and a variable upper frequency control (50-150Hz). For the satellite outputs, an 85Hz high pass filter can be switched in to block frequencies below 85Hz so satellite speakers can meet the Dolby recommendations for theater sound and also to relieve the satellites from the lower frequencies. In addition, you can either switch on/off the subwoofer manually or use the option of automatically powering up the subwoofer whenever it receives a signal (‚signal-on/ continuous').
ADAM has developed the unique Sub2100 subwoofer for the special requirements of large control rooms and studios. The Sub2100 combines a huge 21.5" woofer and an amplifier capable of 1000W continuous power housed in a bass reflex enclosure tuned for reproducing frequencies down to 18Hz. The sheer power and extremely high efficiency (99dB/ W/m) enable this system to produce linear SPL peaks of ≥128dB without any significant compression.
The world‘s largest voice coil
Essential to the volume of this woofer is the gigantic 6” voice coil, which is the largest worldwide. Equipped with this voice coil, the Sub2100 is capable of reaching the highest SPLs in the lowest frequencies that can be perceived by the human ear. On every level, the Sub2100 establishes a new benchmark in subwoofer technology.
