ADAM Audio A8X 2-Way Active Studio Monitor - Single

2-way powered nearfield studio monitor with 8.5" woofer

Product Description

Uniquely in ADAM Audio’s AX Series, the A8X may be used as both a nearfield and midfield monitor thanks to its power and radiation characteristics. The A8X features the company’s X-ART tweeter and an 8.5-inch woofer, which together deliver deep yet tight low frequency reproduction with transparent highs, clear mids and excellent transient response. The price/performance ratio and overall response of the A8X makes it especially attractive for anyone looking for an entry-level midfield monitor.


Like all AX Series speakers, ADAM Audio’s A8X features a X-ART (eXtended Accelerating Ribbon Technology) tweeter, which results in a dramatic improvement in the audio reproduction quality. Handmade in Germany to precise tolerances, the pleated membrane can move the air four times faster than the diaphragms of conventional piston-like tweeters, delivering transparent highs without distortion, minimizing listener fatigue and allowing you to work more accurately for longer periods of time.

The carbon/Rohacell/glass fiber bass/midrange woofer, which ADAM Audio refers to as a midwoofer, features a 1.5-inch voice coil that, in combination with the perfectly matched extra-large dual bass reflex ports on the cabinet’s front baffle, deliver punch with precision, and powerful low frequency extension.

A 150W PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) amplifier drives the midwoofer in combination with 50W Class A/B amp for the tweeter, together generating an impressive SPL of 120 dB per pair at one meter. PWM, also known as Class D amplification, offers extremely high efficiency with a significant reduction in heat compared to previous designs.


Rear panel controls include ± 4dB gain for the high frequencies together with high- and low-frequency shelf filters. Analog balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA input connections make the A8X suitable for virtually any application.


  • Two-way system with an 8.5-inch woofer and German handmade precision X-ART tweeter
  • For nearfield or midfield applications
  • Frequency response of 38Hz – 50kHz
  • High-efficiency 200W bi-amplification
  • Analog XLR and RCA input connections

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
