The T7V is a two-way studio monitor designed for vertical use in a nearfield application. The T7V features a 7” woofer that provides bass extension down to 39 Hz, while the U-ART tweeter’s diaphragm provides pristine and extended high-frequency response up to 25 kHz – virtually unheard of in monitors in this price range. The U-ART tweeter is fitted 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 studio 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.
On the rear side of the T7V’s beveled cabinet, a rear-firing bass reflex port joins a sturdy metal backplate that’s home to the analog input connections. The U-ART tweeter is powered by a 20 W Class-D amp, while a 50 W Class-D amp serves the woofer. These new powerhouses yield an impressive maximum of 110 dB SPL per pair.
The wide frequency response, high dynamic range, excellent transient response, wide sweet spot and small footprints make the T7V perfectly suited for use in small control rooms for music production, video post-production and broadcast production – a great fit for the modest budgets that many facilities need to work with. The ADAM Sub8 subwoofer is the perfect match to complement the T7V to extend the capabilities of monitoring in the bottom end.
Newly developed URT Tweeter with HPS waveguide
Many of the technical innovations implemented in our flagship S Series range have been leveraged for use in the T Series line. The design for the T Series’ new U-ART 1.9” tweeter is based on that used in ADAM Audio’s X-ART and S-ART tweeters employed respectively in the company’s iconic AX Series and S Series powered monitors. The U-ART tweeter 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.
New Class D amplifiers and DSP powered room EQs
Both T Series monitors also feature new Class D amplifiers [20 W for the tweeter and 50 W for the woofer], universal power supplies, and built-in DSP driver crossovers that are derived from technological advances achieved in the design and production of the S Series line. On the rear panels of the T5V and T7V, an XLR connector and RCA jack respectively accept +4 dBu balanced and unbalanced -10 dBV inputs. An associated 2-way switch selects which connector receives an input signal. The T5V and T7V can automatically accept AC voltages ranging from 100 to 240 V, at 50 to 60 Hz. Thus, the T5V and T7V can be connected to professional and prosumer recording systems, and to both balanced and unbalanced I/O boxes for DAWs – virtually anywhere in the developed world with plug and play ease.
Two 3-way switches boost or cut respective low and high frequencies ±2 dB and also provide a ‘flat’ setting. These EQ switches let you tailor the frequency responses to fine-tune their performance when mounting them on shelves, a table top, or a console bridge, and at various distances from nearby walls.
