      Adam Audio F5 5" Near Field Monitor (H90330)

Exceptional ADAM speaker sound and technology, in an affordable 5� woofer size.

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 5� 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).

  • Speaker that made me spend over my budget.

    As reviewed by Jae Sung Youn on 2/4/2013

    I am fairly new to 'serious' mixing. Until now, I have been using my Sennheiser HD 280 pro headphones or Shure SE535 earphones. I knew I needed a monitor speaker if I wanted to start some serious mixing and hopefully, get pleasing results. So I did some research (as you are doing right now) and I narrowed my search down to Yamaha HS50M, KRK Rokit 5, and Tannoy Reveal 501A. I listened to all three of them and here's what my impression on them was. Yamaha had so much mid. I was really surprised how much mid rangy it was. I thought that it was 'too' mid rangy so that it would affect how my final results sound like: 'less' mid range. I excluded the Yamaha. The KRK was okay. As soon as I listened to it, I knew why it was used so so many people, especially dance music producers. I would like to compare it as Dr.Dre headphone type of sound. I has great bass.. but it was little muddy. I felt like it was damped all over the frequencies. So I excluded these. Finally the Tannoy speakers. These were the best compared to other two. It was just perfect. Not too mid randy and not too muddy. It seemed to me that the Tannoy represented what the song was supposed to sound like. But not very over-doing it. Then I listened to the ADAM F5. Pair of these speakers are $500 and it was well above my budget. I was like,, why not just take a listen? and I was blown off. Very very crisp higher frequency due to their special tweeter design. The bass was very tight and full of attack. To be frank, Tannoy sounded similar to the Adam. But I paid $140 more because I loved this better. Besides, it comes with 2 year manufacturer warranty. Believe me and try it. You'll enjoy it. But, don't believe me too much and just go to your local shop and listen to the speakers. You'll 'agree' with what I said here.

  • Adams big let down

    As reviewed by David Ashford on 4/16/2014

    From a company so good I thought I couldn't go wrong with it but I have to try real hard to mix and make it sound good on other systems. The main downfall is the frequency range lacks pretty hard on the top end making everything sound boxy and with a lot of mid. This problem somehow even affects the reverb, as it isn't as noticeable on these. These were a huge let down. I'd say good things about everything else but the frequency range is extremely important when mixing.
