ADAM Sub8 is compact 8.5″ subwoofer with a 160W power amplifier and convenient remote control

 Designed for control rooms with limited real estate (up to 20 square meters), the Sub8 subwoofer makes placement and integration with nearfield monitors easy, filling the room with powerful bass and accurate low-frequency extension down to 30Hz. The perfect complement to ADAM’s AX series and S1X and S2X monitors, it houses a rugged 8.5″ woofer with a 1.5″ voice coil driven by a 160W, high-efficiency ICEpower amplifier. Designed to achieve high output from small enclosures, this amp combines low heat generation with high performance to handle maximum power levels during long mix sessions.

The Sub8’s front baffle features two motorized knobs for input level and crossover frequency settings. These controls can be used either manually or via the included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize sound reproduction from your listening position.

ADAM Sub8 Subwoofer in one take:

  • 5″ Subwoofer (paper)
  • Power RMS / Music: 160W / 240W
  • Frequency Response: 28Hz – 150Hz
  • peak SPL at 1 m: ≥110dB
  • Wireless remote control

ADAM low-frequency driver

 With accuracy being the order of the day, ADAM designed a special woofer for the Sub8 that features extended cone travel and a heavy-duty coil, optimized for a bass reflex enclosure. The Sub8 has a front-firing woofer with a down-firing bass reflex tube to avoid intrusive ventilation noise because of its large size and shape. The Sub8 subwoofer provides a precise combination of low cutoff frequency (-3dB at 28Hz) and undistorted high SPL (110dB at 1m).

Efficient PWM amplifier

ICEpower, a subsidiary of Bang & Olufsen, provides the PWM, or class D amplifier for the ADAM Sub8. Instead of linear power regulation used in Class A/B amplifiers, which leads to energy losses in power transistors, Class D amplifiers use switching transistors. Nearly no energy loss occurs at the transistor and nearly all the power is carried to the transducer. This amplifier produces over 90% efficiency and can handle critical passages without overheating for long periods of time.

 Controls and I/O

The Sub8’s front baffle features two motorized knobs for input level and crossover frequency settings. These controls can be used either manually or via the included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize sound reproduction from your listening position.

On the rear-panel are balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA input connectors. The Sub8 also has left and right satellite outputs that connect to the inputs of the left and right main powered speakers or the inputs of the amps powering the main speakers. The satellites can be driven full range or with a 85Hz high pass. There is also a phase reversal switch in case the satellites are out of phase with the subwoofer.

For full-range bass extension in smaller control rooms, add an ADAM Sub8 to your nearfields, or integrate a matched ADAM 2.1 or 5.1 system. For more information, call or chat online with your Westlake Pro Sales Consultant today.
