The A5X can 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 Audio‘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, making an ideal powerful yet affordable addition to the studio and beyond.


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.
