ADAM Audio S2V

The 7-inch bass driver, newly created from the ground up for the S Series, covers frequencies ranging from 35 Hz to 3 kHz and delivers a powerful, distortion-free low-end with a wide dynamic range. The carefully refined S-ART tweeter, handbuilt as ever at the ADAM Audio factory in Berlin, works seamlessly in tandem with the newly developed HPS waveguide, creating absolutely precise imaging within a generously proportioned sweet spot.

The S2V’s compact dimensions belie its impressive power. A 300 W Class D amplifier drives the woofer while a 50 W Class A/B unit handles the S-ART tweeter; the combined output produces SPLs of up to 120dB per pair.

The S Series’ custom-designed DSP optimizes the loudspeaker crossovers to create linear responses for the entire range, as well as providing user equalization and in-room tuning/voicing functions. The DSP also handles the limiter-based high-frequency driver protection, processes the signals from the AES3 digital inputs, and will in time facilitate various expansion options. Software updates can be carried out with ease via the associated USB port, which also allows users to connect computers and control the speakers’ DSP functions via a software front-end.

With its highly accurate frequency response and balanced, razor-sharp imaging, the S2V allows users to pinpoint even the most subtle audio details, making it an ideal choice for use in demanding studio environments.

“Simply put, one of the
best monitors we have ever listened to.”

DJ Mag

“The sound quality on this range of speakers is undoubtedly ADAM´s best yet and I was a big fan of the previous generation of S series speaker.”


“ADAM’s S2V is a world-class, versatile nearfield monitor. Its seamless tonal integration and lightning-fast transient response makes for a highly revealing system that can be tailored to suit existing monitoring setups, while providing all the detail, depth and resolution bedroom producers would ever need.”

John Pickford

“The ADAM S2V is an absolutely incorruptible monitor, it’s a real workhorse that lets you peer deep into the sonic image with freshly cleaned glasses and the magnifying glass it supplies.”

Jochen Reinecke

„With the new S Series, ADAM Audio creates a new secret weapon for modern studios.“

DJ Mag (Netherlands)

“I recommend the ADAM Audio S2V monitor for every small or medium-sized studio. I think they are definitely worth the money and will be an essential tool for many producers.”

Konstantin “Kostek” Andrejew

“Impressively, spatial characteristics and reverbs are presented in a way that is spread out, like a fan, making even the finest nuances audible. That’s very helpful when building the low end of a mix, giving the user a feeling of security. That’s also true of the incredibly differentiated imaging of the various frequency ranges. This means that individual signals are reproduced very vividly, making them wonderfully easy to work with.”
