Quick Overview

Adam Audio S3X-V Near -/ Midfield Monitor, 3-Way System, 9" Woofer


Using the newly developed 4” HexaCone midrange and 9” HexaCone woofer combined together with the X-ART tweeter creates the unique S3X-V control monitor.

A step up over the smaller models, the S3X-V is capable of producing more power and volume along with a more detailed and homogeneous sound that will impress even the most experienced sound engineer. Whether the complex sonic images of an orchestra or the smooth tone of a jazz trio, the S3X-V reveals even the finest nuances of any material. The driver assembly of the S3X-V allows long time, non-fatiguing listening sessions.

New Option: External Amplifier Unit EA-SX

For the models S2X, S3X, S4X and S5X we offer the option of an external amp unit in order to make flush mounting of these monitors easier.

Reviews: “Wonderfully detailed...”

“Wonderfully detailed, with an exceptionally transparent mid-range. [...] ADAM make the leap to a three-way speaker design that seems to pay dividends in clarity and separation. [...] I think it would be fair to say they‘re the best sounding ADAM monitors I‘ve reviewed.” (Sound On Sound, 12/2009)

“No doubt, the S3X-V deserve the title Reference Monitor. With this series, ADAM Audio proves to have a very good feeling for meeting the specific demands of the sound engineer‘s guild, creating studio standards at the same time. [...] A precision tool combined with a luxury good.” (, 03/2010)
