Adam Audio Sub7 Active Studio Subwoofer
ADAM Audio has announced that it is giving away free plugins to users who register their ADAM products on the MyADAM section of the company’s website.
Currently on offer is Obelisk, a MIDI Chord Builder VST/AU plugin from UK-based audio software developer Frozenplain. Obelisk makes it easier to write chord progressions and explore new harmonies for melodic lines, transforming each MIDI note that you play into a harmony that (optionally) matches the key and scale of your track. The structure of the harmony is created by selecting intervals on the right of the GUI, or by loading up one of the many chord presets. By pressing a few notes on your keyboard, you can create the harmonic basis of your new track.
In the MyADAM area, ADAM customers also have the option of increasing the warranty period of their ADAM products from 2 to a total of 5 years.
Our subwoofers are dedicated to ADAM Audio's primary goal: the best possible authenticity in the reproduction of music. For our subwoofers, this means combining power and precision while simultaneously avoiding "impressive" bass volume at the cost of accuracy. Their task is it to complement the highly acclaimed lucidity and transparency of the ADAM monitors in the lower and lowest frequencies.
All subwoofers up to the Sub2100 feature both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) in and output connectors, and numerous controls to adapt to different room acoustics and requirements.
"I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a top-notch subwoofer." Tape Op on the Sub12 (Feb/March 2009)
All subwoofers up to the Sub2100 feature a number of controls to adapt to different room acoustics and requirements.
All units have a level control that varies from -60dB to +6dB, a phase ±180° switch and variable upper frequency barrier control (50-150Hz), a switchable 85Hz high pass filter for the satellite output. In addition, there is a 'signal-on/continuous' switch. This provides the option of automatic power up whenever the subwoofer receives a signal and automatic power off after 15 minutes of no signal.
The Sub7 has been designed to complement smaller monitors like the AX-Series´models A3X, A5X, and A7X. Its small footprint allows for an easy placement even in small environments.
The front panel features two motorized potentiometers that let you adapt the input level and crossover frequency settings for the best performance. These pots can also be controlled with an included wireless remote control, allowing you to optimize your sound reproduction from your ideal listening position.
Connectors and controls
The Sub7 is equipped with both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA or Cinch) in and output connectors and numerous controls. A 0°/180° phase switch and a switchable 85Hz highpass filter allows you to find the best settings for an ideal sound and performance.
Combining depth and precision
The low cut off frequency of 32Hz (-3dB point) enables this subwoofer to reproduce register of even this range in a highly authentic manner.

Previously had Adam sub 8 with A7s, now have smaller Adam T5v active monitors and the sub 7 is a perfect accompaniment to these. I did wonder whether it would be powerful enough being the size it is, but it doesn't disappoint whatsoever. Thoroughly recommended
