ADAM Audio has announced two new subwoofers, the Sub24 and Sub20. These new monitors expand the current line of ADAM subwoofers to include dual-driver, dual-port designs with higher power handling for larger critical listening environments.
“As is the aim of all ADAM designs, these new subs give you tight, clean, and accurate representation with the ability to tune them to your environment,” said Dave Bryce of ADAM Audio USA. “And if you feel the need, they can loosen your fillings with their size and power!”
The Sub24 is designed to reproduce LFE or other low frequency signals down to 19 Hz in medium sized or larger control rooms. It is equipped with two long throw 12” drivers that are mounted at the opposite sides of the cabinet.
The opposite and symmetrical alignment of forces applied to the cabinet provides much quieter performance than conventional arrays. Distortion is drastically reduced and the clarity of the signal is improved, especially at higher gain levels. There are two down-firing bass reflex tubes that successfully avoid ventilation noise due to their size and construction. Each woofer has its own amplifier, each capable of delivering 200 Watts continuous/300 Watts peak power to their corresponding drivers. The amplifier’s Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) technology provides extremely high efficiency and cool operation in even the most critical levels of performance. Controls include a phase ± 180° switch, level control from -60 dB to +6 dB and a switchable 85 Hz high pass filter for the satellite output.
The Sub20 applies all of the same design goals of the Sub24 in a more compact cabinet housing two 10” drivers, ideal for medium size listening environments.
