ADAM A7X Frankfurt, Germany (March 26, 2010) -- The new AX-Series monitors from ADAM Audio feature the company’s highly acclaimed X-ART tweeter, new woofers and amplifiers, and completely re-designed
Following ADAM’s award-winning A and SX-Series monitor systems, the AX Series includes four high performance systems, ranging from the ultra-compact and fully professional A3X, to the high performance A5X, A7X and A8X systems.
The X-ART tweeter is more efficient and handles higher SPLs along with a frequency response up to 50kHz. All AX-Series woofers and amplifiers have also been reengineered from scratch, with larger voice-coils and more powerful amplifiers for greater linear excursion and more output. The redesigned cabinets all feature twin bass reflex ports.
ADAM’S smallest monitor, the A3X is ideal for applications where space is limited such as desktop and other home monitoring situations. Already being hailed for its exceptional imaging and accuracy from a speaker so small (9.9”H x 5.9”W x 7.2”D and 10 lbs.), the A3X is equipped with the unmatched X-ART tweeter for clear sound reproduction, a 4.5” mid/low frequency driver with a very light but stiff carbon fiber diaphragm for absolute transparency, and two highly efficient 25-watt amplifiers to power each driver.
As with other AX-Series speakers, the A3X also features Stereolink, a pair of additional RCA connectors allowing the user to connect both speakers with a single cable so that the volume for both speakers can be controlled from the Gain control of either speaker.
One of our most popular speakers, the A5 has now been reborn as the A5X with the proprietary X-ART tweeter, a 5.5” mid/woofer to reproduce frequencies below 2.5kHz and twice the power. The speaker diaphragm is made from ultra-rigid and lightweight Carbon/Rohacell/Glass, which prevents break up resonances and produces a dynamic sound.
Two 50W amps drive each of the speakers directly and the speakers feature 110dB max peak SPL per pair. Like other AX systems, XLR and RCA connectors are provided along with a 5-year warranty.
Succeeding the critically acclaimed ADAM A7 is the new A7X. It features the X-ART tweeter, a newly designed 7” mid/woofer featuring a larger 1.5” voice coil.
A 50W A/B amp drives the X-ART tweeter, while a leading edge 100W Pulse Width Modulation amp drives the mid/woofer. The front panel includes a power switch and a control for the volume that retains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch. On the rear panel are several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies. To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.
The A8X is equipped with the X-ART tweeter and an 8.5” carbon/Rohacell/fiberglass mid/woofer that combine seamlessly to produce a very deep yet exceptionally tight bass response.
Like the other AX-Series models, the upper corners of the A8X are beveled to minimize reflections. The large, double bass reflex tubes on the front have been specifically designed to match the mid/woofer and its large voice coil. With a 50W amplifier for the tweeter and a 150W amplifier for the mid/woofer, the A8X has more than enough power for any applications. Other features include a tweeter gain control and 2 shelf filters on the rear panel, an expansive frequency response of 38Hz - 50kHz, XLR & RCA connectors, 120dB max peak SPL per pair and a 5-year warranty.
MSRP for the AX-Series is as follows: A3X - $299 each, A5X - $449 each, A7X - $599 each and the A8X $899 each.

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.
