Adam Audio S3V Midfield Monitor

Details
The Adam S3V Midfield Monitor is a three-way studio monitor designed for vertical purposes and compact listening environments, although mainly for midfield applications. The newly engineered 9" hexacone woofer features intuitive symmetrical magnet assembly (SMA) to provide outstanding low ends reaching down to the sub-bass region. The accurate mid-range emits a truly precise sound due to the use of a 4" DCH mid-range driver and the polished S-ART HF driver. Combining the drivers with the HPS waveguide results in a truly natural depth with an unrivaled sweet spot. With exceptional audio reproduction between 32 Hz and 50 kHz, the S3V midfield monitor is ideal for those desiring highly accurate imaging and localisation.

Specially Engineered Mid-Range Driver

The Adam Midfield Monitor includes a newly designed 4 inch mid-range driver in a hybrid design inspired by the cone and dome drivers. The drive element delivers the clean decay and linear frequency response of dome drivers, combined with high excursion advantages of cone drivers. The result is distortion free high output levels with enhanced transparency in the critical mid-range. Matching the quality of the S Series suspension system to control large-scale excursions, wobble is completely eradicated. The DCH's output extends down an octave further to provide users with pure dispersion and no tonal colouration. Finally, the robust housing and construction of the DCH allows for positioning closer to the S-ART treble driver in order to act as a pair and produce wider dispersion with more accurate and consistent sound reproduction.

Symmetrical Magnet Assembly

Within the custom bass driver sits the newly engineered magnet. The symmetrical magnet assembly (SMA) allows for extension over the maximum excursion of the electromagnetic voice, three times as much as previous designs. The assembly provides membrane operation in linear fashion over large distances and is capable of a higher maximum output. Accurate low-frequency signals are reproduced without distortion even in the most demanding environments. The integrated ventilation system stops the voice coils from heating up to combat the effects of dampening dynamic ranges, parameter changes and distorted low frequencies. All these are non-existent with the S3V's new magnet design.

Custom Designed Bass Driver

The ELE bass driver included in all Adam S Series monitors represents the latest computer modeling techniques that guarantees accurate audio reproduction with outstanding resolution. With its low weight, optimised inner damping and highly stable honeycomb cone, the Adam S3V eliminates unwanted resonance and rejects distortion. the specially engineered driver provides a professional performance with both clarity and transparency whilst delivering precise sound reproduction at high sound pressure levels.

Tightest Tweet Tolerance

Handmade in Berlin, the tweeter included within the Studio Monitor has been continually engineered to an even higher standard of precision than its previous models. The S-ART tweeter allows for longer operation and use with fewer signs of fatigue. An acoustically effective diaphragm surface delivers an advanced dynamic range whilst distortion is efficiently minimised via folded diaphragms.

Custom DSP Engine

Featuring a high-performance DSP engine, the S3V perfects crossover for an optimised frequency response and maximum dynamic range. The engine delivers a variety of options for in-room optimisation including control over the overall level, two parametric shelving filters for bass and highs, and six fully parametric EQs with Q that can be cut or boosted at various frequencies.
