ADAM Packs Big Sound into a Compact Active Monitor!
The ADAM A5 active monitor provides full sound from a small footprint, making it great for studio use, desktop production, even as part of a 5.1 surround system. Based on the same quality components and construction of ADAM's popular A7, the A5 model uses a 5" woofer and ART ribbon tweeter, with two 25-watt amplifiers supplying clean power. In addition to XLR and RCA inputs, this monitor includes innovative Stereolink connections for flexible control. Front panel controls put command of the ADAM A5 right at your fingertips.

Building on the A7's legacy
Technically, the A5 is a smaller version of the A7, and can be used either in stereo or to fill out a 5.1 surround system. Powered by 2 x 25W on-board amplifiers, the A5 combines ADAM's renowned ART (Accelerated Ribbon Technology) folded ribbon tweeter with a 5" woofer constructed of a carbon fiber and Rohacell sandwich.
Little speaker, big sound
The front of the A5 sports dual ports for surprising low frequency response down to 55Hz (can be extended to 30Hz with the addition of the new compact Sub7 subwoofer), metal grills for added durability, as well as power and gain controls. The rear panel includes balanced XLR jacks, unbalanced RCA jacks, and Stereolink connections.
An exclusive technology of the A5, Stereolink gives you two additional in- and outputs for the second stereo channel which enable the user to adjust the volume of both loudspeakers with one control only. Unlike the classic 'master-slave' technology, the Stereolink allows both speakers to be the 'master'.
