The Adam Audio Sub8 is a compact yet powerful 8.5-inch active subwoofer with a 38mm voice coil. The Sub8 is driven by a 160W RMS amplifier that stays cool, even while handling maximum power levels for a sustained period of time. The front panel has two motorized knobs for setting input level and crossover frequency. An included wireless remote allows you to change those settings from your normal listening position for the highest degree of accuracy. An ideal match to several of the Adam active and passive nearfield monitors, the Sub8 offers a balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA connectors.

The Sub8 is a small yet powerful subwoofer designed to extend the low frequency capabilities of any nearfield monitoring system down to 30Hz.

It houses a robust 8.5? woofer with a 1.5" voice coil driven by a 160W ICE power amplifier. This amp combines low heat generation with high performance to handle maximum power levels, even during long mix sessions.

The front baffle features two motorized knobs that let you tailor input level and crossover frequency settings. These settings can also be controlled via the included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize your sound reproduction from your ideal listening position.

The Sub8 is designed for smaller rooms up to 20 square meters. It is an ideal match for the ADAM Audio AX-Series and the S2V nearfield monitors.
