ADAM Audio’s The Pie Town is a matched 5.1 Surround system with five 5.5″ ADAM A5X nearfield monitors and one 10″ Sub10 MK2 Subwoofer
ADAM A5X Powered Nearfield Monitor
The ADAM A5X is a small, self-powered desktop monitor for the space-challenged or mobile studio on a budget, looking for quality monitoring. Despite its small size and affordability, the A5X meets professional standards in accurate sound reproduction, particularly in the all-too critical 200-400Hz range, where mud and boxiness lives. The ADAM A5X also provides a three-dimensional sound field, defined instrument spatialization, and a bass response that’s controlled and deeper than one would expect from a monitor of its size. What sets the A5X apart from other monitors is ADAM’s precision X-ART ribbon tweeter, which not only produces excellent transient response and ultra-wide bandwidth up to 50kHz, but also does so in a very musical way that’s easy on the ears—a major bonus for long mixing sessions.

The ADAM Sub10 MK2 Subwoofer
When it comes to reproducing bass frequencies with nearfield monitors, the laws of physics rears its inconvenient head. And while we’ve come a long and surprising way with bass extension on small drivers and cabinets, though you may bend the law a little, you can’t break it. Well, there’s a new sheriff in town, and it’s name is ADAM, ADAM Sub10 MK2. Today’s music often depends on what’s happening in the sub frequencies, below 40Hz. One solution is simply to filter everything below 30-40Hz, but filters extend farther up the range. And before we start chopping up our low end, wouldn’t it be nice to know what’s going on down there before we take a knife to it and start cutting. The ADAM Sub10 MK2 provides a clear picture down 25Hz.
ADAM Sub 10 MK2 powered subwoofer in one take:
- 10″ subwoofer (paper)
- Amplifier power RMS/Music: 200W/300W
- Frequency response: 25Hz – 150Hz
- peak SPL at 1 m: ≥113dB
