  • Adam Audio - A5X Nearfield Monitor 2-way, 5.5" woofer



The A5X is popular among professionals working in television studios and remote broadcast vans. The A5X can also be found in numerous home/project studios around the world. Its open, powerful sound makes the A5X a trustworthy and useful tool for multimedia applications as well.

Like all models of the AX-Series, the A5X is equipped with ADAM‘s proprietary X-ART tweeter. One 5.5“ bass/midrange woofer works below 2.5kHz and is driven by a 1.5“ voice coil and a powerful 50 Watt PWM amplifier. Its acoustic qualities give you a clear picture of the smallest changes in your mix and the sonic results. Despite all that it does, the A5X is not fatiguing in long studio sessions.


The ‘Stereolink’ is a useful feature for desktop DAWs. Two additional input and output jacks for the second stereo channel allow you to control the volume for both monitors using the volume control of only one loudspeaker. The volume control of the other monitor only affects its own volume in order to easily compensate for differences in listening distance. Unlike the typical master-slave configuration, each A5X monitor is fully equipped and can function either as a master or a slave unit.

Features & Benefits

  • X-ART tweeter, handmade in Berlin 
    • Allows longer operation with fewer signs of fatigue
    • Their breakup is prevented by the folded diaphragms, distortions are effectively reduced to a minimum
    • Advanced dynamic range due to acoustically effective diaphragm surface that is 2.5 times bigger (compared to a classic tweeter according to the piston principle)
    • The air velocity ratio of 4:1 during the sound generation by folded X-ART membrane 
    • Direct, fast response in the high-range even with complex transients
  • Ultra-light but extremely dimensionally stable woofer material (Carbon/Rohacell/Glass fiber) 
    • Excellent transient response even at high sound levels without breakup of the diaphragm
  • Vertical 2-way system with 5” woofer 
    • High resolution of the stereo image
  • Highly efficient PWM amplifier for the woofer coupled with an A/B amplifier for X-ART tweeter 
    • Low-distortion amplification at both low and high volume levels
  • Linear frequency response of 50 Hz to 50 kHz 
    • Unbiased reproduction in a wide frequency band
  • Maximum peak sound pressure per pair in 1 m ≥ 110 dB 
    • Powerful, compression-free sound reproduction even at very high sound levels
  • Simple, stepless room acoustic adjustments over tweeter gain, low and high shelf filters 
    • Allows optimal adaptation to acoustically difficult listening environments or individual preferences
  • Stereolink function (Cinch cable contained in the delivery contents) 
    • Simple and symmetric volume control on the front panel
  • Analog XLR and RCA inputs 
    • Optimized for balanced and unbalanced line signals
  • Acoustically optimized cabinet geometry 
    • Reduction of unwanted reflections on the cabinets
  • Directional sound radiation in vertical plane 
    • Reduction of early reflections on the surfaces of, e.g. mixing consoles, desks, etc.
  • Volume control and on/off switch on the front 
    • Very easy to use
  • Compact cabinet dimensions 
    • Fits every desktop
  • Easily mounted on walls with original ADAM Audio wall mount (optional) 
    • Space saving positioning at any height
