ADAM Audio monitors are found in top recording and post production studios all over the world, and now take their extensive knowledge of studio speaker technology and have created a more affordable entry line of monitors. The F5 is the smallest of the near field monitors in the F-series and has been designed for listening environments with somewhat limited space.
The F models feature a newly designed version of ADAMâ??s highly acclaimed ART tweeter. Slightly smaller than the X-ART tweeter, it is the next step in this continuous evolution in tweeter design.
As the name suggests, the F5 sports a 5â? woofer made from carbon and paper and a 25mm voice coil. Despite the size of both the woofer as well as the cabinet, the F5 is capable of an astounding deep yet tight bass response.
Several controls to adjust the monitors to the environment are located on the rear panel: two room EQâ??s for both the high (>5kHz) and the low (<300Hz) frequencies as well as a volume knob (-â?? to +6dB).
Worst monitors ever.
Not because it sounds like shit. No. because It's such a mismatch.
The tweeter is excellent. Excellent. Sounds over 2.5khz sound nice
But the woofer sounds like a donkey hitting it's ass against drywall.
Everything below 2.5 is blurry.
Yes, I thought the same thing: "maybe they need time to break in".
Then 3 weeks later, they sounded worse. The tweeter leveled out. The woofer..... same blurryness.
Obvious mismatching to try to reduce costs. Shoulda put less quality into tweeter and more into woofer.
And by the way they're over-priced as fuck. Even the speaker itself has 0 = or "o" face because it can't believe your bank account is taking that sorta fucking for nothing.
Suggestion: Get a5x instead. Stay away.
These monitors lets you hear all the things others don't. It's pretty linear in frequency response and the low end is there but I guess they need a subwoofer for a complete experience. Other than this, they are a great pair of monitors with solid build and finish.
This is the best buy in my studio as of yet. The price for the punch is great. I was surprised when I got them and am happy that I do. My tacks have improved so much because of this reference monitors.
