ADAM Audio S5V 3-Way Active Vertical Monitor - Single

Premium 3-way vertical mid-field monitor with 12" woofer
MFR# 13104600

Product Description

The Adam Audio S5V is an award-winning reference monitor designed for medium and large-sized control rooms. Featuring an all-new 12-inch bass driver, a 4-inch hybrid dome/cone hybrid driver, and a precision S-ART folded-ribbon tweeter, the S5V combines raw power with unparalleled accuracy.

Symmetrical Magnet Assembly Driver

Extended Linear Excursion (ELE) bass drivers offer a linear bass response down to 25 Hz. A newly developed Symmetrical Magnet Assembly (SMA) design allows the driver to accurately reproduce low-frequency signals without distortion. Powered by a Class D 700 W amplifier, the S5V’s bass unit delivers unparalleled low-end performance.

Dome/Cone Hybrid Driver

The S5V’s midrange driver features a proprietary hybrid design, combining the linear frequency response of a dome driver with the high output level of a cone driver. This audibly improves transparency in the mid-range and allows for distortion-free reproduction at high output levels. Equipped with a 300 W Class D amplifier, the DCH driver delivers precision midrange performance.

Folded-Ribbon Tweeter

Each of Adam Audio’s legendary S-ART folded-ribbon tweeters are handmade in Berlin to the highest standards. Capable of delivering a linear frequency response up to 50 kHz, the S-ART tweeter offers industry-leading accuracy. Adam Audio’s high- and mid-frequency waveguides improve clarity in the critical midrange frequencies. Mid-range and High-frequency Propagation System provide an extremely accurate off-axis response.

Advanced Digital Processing

S Series monitors are equipped with a high-performance DSP-powered crossover to for optimum frequency response and an extended dynamic range. This powerful DSP engine also offers an array of options for in-room optimization, like an eight-band parametric EQ, custom voicing presets, and limiter-based protection.

Accessing DSP functions is fast and easy with the built-in USB port. Simply connect your S Series monitors to your computer and tweak settings using the free software interface. In addition to standard XLR inputs, S Series monitors offer digital AES3 inputs for added versatility and expansion options in the future.

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
Thomas W.
