Adam Audio A4V Powered 2-Way Studio Monitor

The A4V produces precise, full-bodied sound in a compact form factor, making it ideal for small studio spaces, short listening distances, and immersive multi-speaker configurations. The A4V is a two-way speaker with a 4-inch long-throw woofer made from the same Multi-Layer Mineral (MLM) fibers as other A-Series speakers plus the classic X-ART tweeter. You can quickly dial in the perfect sound for your space with onboard DSP-based tuning capabilities. With a frequency range of 52 Hz to 45 kHz, the A4V can handle a wide range of audio applications, from podcasting to mixing string quartets, and will work well in immersive and 3D setups.

HPS Waveguide Technology

The Adam Audio HPS (high-frequency propagation system) waveguide technology allows tweeters to disperse sound in a controlled consistency, with a broad horizontal axis but tight focused in the vertical plane. With a rotatable HPS waveguide design, you can shift A Series tweeters in 90-degree steps to continue to benefit from HPS waveguide technology. It allows you to position the speaker either horizontally or vertically.

Rotatable HPS Waveguide and X-ART Tweeter

The A Series HPS Waveguide is constructed of a unique glass fiber polymer compound that aids in the creation of a clear, resonance-free sound. The Adam Audio X-ART tweeter is at the heart of the rotatable HPS waveguide. The X-ART tweeter is handcrafted in Germany and enables precise transient responses and reproduction of the finest sonic details. This speaker uses an X-ART tweeter, resulting in a detailed, uniform sound across the line.

Multi-Layer Mineral Woofer 

The woofer of the A4V is made out of a special blend of mineral stone fibers that have been baked together to create a lightweight yet extremely stable material. This woofer generates great output with low distortion and a clear low-end by combining this material with a new magnet system.

Midrange Driver

The A4V's midrange driver, adapted from Adam Audio's groundbreaking DCH midrange driver used in the S Series speakers, produces a clean sound in a critical part of the frequency range where humans are especially sensitive to sound coloration. The dedicated driver for the midrange helps clarify lows and highs by eliminating the need for woofers to reproduce midrange frequencies and thus reducing distortion.

Hybrid Amplification  

The woofer on the A4V has a Class D amplifier, which helps to deliver linear performance while minimizing distortion. In terms of energy consumption and sound reproduction, this amplifier has both power and efficiency. The low thermal dissipation allows for a smaller heat sink, allowing for additional investment in the A4V monitor's superior power and performance. The tweeters and midrange drivers are powered by Class AB amplifiers which offer a smooth, natural reproduction of high frequencies.

DSP-Based Electronics 

The A4V takes advantage of DSP-based electronics' revolutionary capability to give more tuning precision and predictability than analog-only speakers. With firmware that can be updated via Ethernet, you can expect to see Adam Audio's latest DSP-based capabilities, such as new filter types and features, as well as alternate voicings, over time.

Room Adaptation 

There are four bands of room adaptation equalization on the back panel of the Adam Audio A4V speaker including Bass, Desk, Presence, and Treble. Each band can be adjusted in predefined steps, providing over 100 tuning options to help compensate for common acoustic issues caused by speaker placement.

Voicings

A Voicing is a pre-defined sound profile of this monitor. On the back panel, you will find two different selections, UNR and Pure. Here you will also find the Ext option which is dedicated to the extended functionality that comes with A-Control via the Ethernet connection. 

A Control (Real-Time Remote Control) 

This monitor features a DSP-based functionality that can be controlled remotely and in real-time over Ethernet using the free to download A Control software. A Control is available to download for Windows and macOS.
