ADAM Audio T5V Active Nearfield Monitor (Single)

Add to Wish List
The T Series is from ADAM Audio's new range of affordable, professional 2-way powered studio monitors. Offering extremely high performance, the T5V features a 5" woofer and U-ART high-frequency driver (Unique Accelerated Ribbon Tweeter); a beveled cabinet design, rear-firing bass reflex port, built-in DSP-controlled driver crossovers and equalization, and multi-way analog connections; and are compatible with the ADAM Sub7 and Sub8 subwoofers.

The monitors small dimensions belie its outstanding performance: the wide frequency response, high dynamic range, excellent transient response, wide sweet spot and small footprints make the T5V perfectly suited for use in small control rooms for music production, video post-production and radio broadcast. And because of its attractive price point the T5V is a great fit for the modest budgets that many facilities need to work with.

With its 5" woofer the bass-frequency response of the T5V extends to 45 Hz. The new U-ART tweeter, a breakthrough solution for use in high-resolution recording and mixing on a budget, goes up to 25 kHz and is mated to a precision waveguide with the same dispersion-control attributes as the High Frequency Propagation (HPS) waveguide used in ADAM Audio's flagship S Series monitors. The waveguide's highly uniform dispersion of high frequencies provides an incredibly wide sweet spot that frees you from being glued to a rigid mix position while working.

First impression, these reference monitors are are crisp and clean. Unlike many monitors of this size, these have a surprising low end response when governed correctly. They are true and unfiltered in their frequency response as per usual with Adam's reputation! I highly recommend these monitors, as they are the real deal! Special call out to Cory at L&G Highlands in Edmonton for the sound adv ice! Thank you!!!!

Wanting to improve my monitors I've been looking at options that were in my limited budget range. I've always loved a friend's A7Xs but they were out of my price range. The T5Vs are amazingly close in sound at a fraction of the price. If you're looking for great monitors at a great price you really should audition these. There's a reason they get rave reviews.
