Overview of the features, benefits and specifications of the ADAM Audio A7X Near-Field Monitors
The predecessor to ADAM Audio's A7X, the A7, became the most famous of all ADAM monitors in a very short time. Not only has it been reviewed over three dozen times with outstanding results, it has also received numerous awards. The A7 quickly gained mass appeal, praised in many of the world's largest internet forums. Still today, the A7 are the reference monitors in many smaller studios. With the A7X, ADAM Audio proudly presents the evolution of a legend. It takes everything that made the A7 such an outstanding speaker to a new level.
The first aspect that distiguishes the old from the newer model is the X-ART tweeter. The "X" stands for "eXtended frequency response" and thus for one of the features of the Accelerating Ribbon Technology that has been drastically improved: the frequency response. It now extends all the way up to 50 kHz. In addition, the X-ART tweeter has a higher efficiency and higher maximum sound pressure levels.
The perfect integration with the lower frequencies has been achieved with a redesigned 7" midwoofer. It has a much bigger voice coil (1.5") and is driven by an amplifier with twice the power compared to its predecessor. This combination produces an amazing sound and pressure levels with an almost distortion-free musical reproduction.
Each driver has its own dedicated amplifier. A 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, while the midwoofer is being driven by a 100W PWM amplifier. The front panel includes a power switch and a control for the volume that retains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch.
On the rear panel are several additional controls: a gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies.
To ensure greater compatibility, there are both XLR (balanced) and RCA (unbalanced) connectors.

Step-by-step Installation Video for Installing the Acoustic Geometry Door Seal Kit
This Door Seal Kit is the simplest way to start soundproofing a room. It offers the most effective sound isolation for the money, and is very easy to install.
Soundproofing any room starts with eliminating the air gaps around the door. The highly-effective Door Seal Kit includes an automatic bottom seal and adjustable jamb seals, which create an airtight seal. The automatic door bottom seal lowers a neoprene gasket to the door threshold and works as a self-leveling unit - the gasket end nearest the hinge drops first, with the rest of the seal self-leveling to the threshold as the door closes. The adjustable jamb seal is installed around the two sides and top of the door jamb, utilizing soft neoprene rubber to create an airtight seal by closing the air gap between the door and the jamb. If door swings INTO the room, the kit goes on the OUTSIDE of the door; if door swings OUT OF the room, the kit goes on the INSIDE of the door.
