Adam Audio T8V 8-Inch Powered Studio Monitor

The Adam Audio T8V 8-Inch Powered Studio Monitor is an affordable, professional 2-way powered studio monitor with an 8-inch woofer and ADAM Audio’s latest addition to the T series. Designed around the same technology, features, and build quality as its smaller siblings, the T8V provides best-in-class characteristics and sound performance. The T8V is the perfect studio speaker for those who have always wanted to work with an 8-inch monitor from ADAM Audio, but where budgets have been insufficient.

Ergonomics

The T8V impresses with a multitude of features that bring real benefits to the user: The U-ART's 4:1 velocity transfer ratio, in combination with the new Class D amplifiers’ high dynamic range, yield respective max. peak SPL of 118 dB per pair. The tweeter, which extends up to 25 kHz, works as a team with the HPS waveguide. This allows optimal radiation of the high frequencies, which means the advantage of a more controlled, larger usable sweet spot during monitoring. With a bass extension down to 33 Hz, the T8V is especially suitable for users who produce bass-heavy music.

U-ART High-Frequency Driver

The new U-ART 1.9-inch accelerated ribbon tweeter, as used in the T Series, is made of a high-tech polyimide film and provides pristine and extended high-frequency response up to 25 kHz, virtually unheard of in monitors in this price range, and a breakthrough solution for use in high-resolution recording and mixing on a budget. Unlike a conventional dome or cone tweeter that uses a piston action to move air and reproduce sound, the U-ART tweeter uses a pleated ribbon that alternately draws air into its folds and squeezes it out as the folds respectively expand apart and press together in response to inputted audio signal. This design produces four times as much air movement as does a piston-based design, creating higher sound pressure levels (SPLs) with lower distortion.

HPS Waveguide

The HPS (High-frequency Propagation System) waveguide was initially designed at ADAM Audio for the S-ART Tweeter of the S series range with the aid of the latest computer modeling techniques. It hones the dispersion of the speakers to an even, uniform consistency, broad in the horizontal axis but tightly focused in the vertical plane. This minimizes potentially distracting reflections from the horizontal surfaces of significant studio furniture (for example mixing consoles), ensures that imaging remains constant, and creates a large, well-controlled, and stable ‘sweet spot’, even at high output levels.

Pulse Width Modulation

The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) sometimes referred to as Class D amplification, sometimes called Switching Amp Technology – converts the incoming signal to a series of rectangular waveforms of equal height. The width of the rectangles varies in time and the relation of the width of the rectangles represents the musical signal. This waveform can be amplified much more simply, as the transistors are not modulated anymore; instead, they are used as switches that only turn the power supply voltage on and off. It is possible that a very fast mechanical switch could do the job, but power transistors are a better choice for the task, so PWM amplifiers still work pretty much like conventional Class AB designs. It is important to note there are no bits and bytes involved, so 'Digital Amplifier is a misleading and inaccurate term.

Advantages of PWM

The main advantage of PWM amplifiers is their extremely high efficiency (>90%). As a consequence the heat to be dissipated is only one-fifth of earlier designs, leading to much lower temperatures within the amps and making the use of heat sinks obsolete. This principle has been known for decades, but time was needed to develop units that perform at the leading edge in sonic reproduction quality and yet still maintain the high efficiency mentioned previously.
