ADAM Classic Column MK3

With a height of well over 120 cm (48″), the Column is the towering model of the Classic range. Designed with the new X-ART midrange the Column MK3 now has better resolution than the previous model using the outstanding ART midrange.

Also, the Column features the X-ART tweeter combination with the brand new ADAM designed A/B amplifier. This truly unique ‘motor/driver-combination’ is nothing less but a guarantee of the best possible resolution and airiness in the high frequencies.

Furthermore, the Column carries two new HexaCone woofers, each driven by a 200 W PWM amplifier. The extremely light and stiff material of these woofers prevent break up resonances and thus contribute to the precision of the bass.

2x 7.5 “Woofers (HexaCone)

Approved BY OUR PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY

"The Classic Column Mk3 is a splash of cool water in the face and a kick in the butt. It gave me an alternate and entirely refreshing depiction of everything I threw at it. ADAM Audio may be a name new to the American high end, but my hat’s off to them: The Colum2n Mk3 is aptly named a Classic.
