Germany-based speaker maker Adam Audio is releasing a third generation of its flagship S Series of powered monitors.

The line contains two- and three-way monitors. Low-frequency and midrange drivers are new designs as are the waveguides for the company’s hallmark ribbon tweeters, themselves also tweaked. 

Improvements are in the Extended Linear Excursion woofer, including a new magnet assembly; the midrange driver received similar enhancements; redesigned woofer reflex bass ports; onboard DSP is upgraded with a new SHARC processor. In addition, the cabinets have undergone reconstruction, the company says, to minimize vibration and add some heft.

Models in the line include the two-way S2V with a 7-inch woofer and 300 W onboard digital amp for the LF driver and a 50 W Class A/B amp for the tweeter; the three-way S3V with a 9-inch woofer, 4-inch carbon composite midrange dome/cone hybrid, 500 W digital LF amp, 300 W digital midrange driver amp, and 50 W A/B amp for the tweeter; the three-way S3H (for horizontal orientation) with dual 7-inch woofers, 4-inch carbon composite midrange dome/cone hybrid, dual 500 W digital LF amps, 300 W digital midrange driver amp, and 50 W A/B amp for the tweeter; the three-way S5V with a 12-inch woofer, 4-inch carbon composite midrange dome/cone hybrid, 700 W digital LF amp, 300 W digital midrange driver amp, and 100 W digital amp for the tweeter; and the three-way S3H (for horizontal orientation) with dual 10-inch woofers, 4-inch carbon composite midrange dome/cone hybrid, dual 400 W digital LF amps, 300 W digital midrange driver amp, and 100 W A/B amp for the tweeter; 

Adam Audio Chairman David Angress said, “Under its new management, Adam Audio has reenergized every aspect of the company, and our R&D team has been working behind closed doors to create this third-generation S Series line.”
