The new Sub15 studio subwoofer from ADAM Audio is capable of extending the frequency range of main and midfield monitors down to 20 Hz.

The 15-inch woofer is made of an exceptionally rigid aluminum membrane, driven by two powerful magnets and a 100 mm voice coil.

The Sub15 combines exceptional transient response with efficient low-frequency performance. It is rated to provide 112 dB maximum SPL (at 1 meter), making it a good choice for mid-sized and larger control rooms.

The Sub 15’s PWM amplifier delivers 1,000 watts of power (RMS) and has an efficiency factor of nearly 90%, which allow it to handle critical musical passages with sudden peaks without distortion or overheating. The downward firing bass port has been specially designed with generous dimensions and rounded edges to cancel port noise.

The Sub15 is equipped with a volume control (-60 dB to +6 dB) and crossover frequency control (50-150 Hz) to adjust the sound for different room situations and individual tastes.

Satellite speakers can either be driven full-range or high-pass filtered at 8 5Hz. A phase reverse switch is provided to deal with unfavorable phase relationships between the satellites and the subwoofer, particularly in the crossover frequency range.

To ensure maximum connectivity, the Sub15 includes both balanced (XLR) and unbalanced (RCA) input/output connectors on the rear control panel.
