ADAM F7

The F7 offers all the features you want to see in a professional studio monitor: a broad frequency range (44Hz – 50kHz) plus comprehensive control.

The monitor is equipped with a Room Equalizer for high (> 5kHz) and low (< 300 Hz) frequencies and an overall volume control on the rear panel. A high pass filter (to be used in conjunction with a subwoofer) and XLR/TRS/RCA inputs complete the professional functions of the F7.

The F7 is driven by two A/B class amplifiers with 100W RMS / 140W Music. This helps the monitor to provide a vibrant, deep bass and a maximum SPL of 109dB per pair. The reproduction of dynamically challenging tracks should not be a problem with this powerhouse.

STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY

ADAM Audio monitors have earned a worldwide reputation as the preeminent tool for sound engineers based on technological innovations that we’ve established in the field of loudspeaker technology.

Approved BY OUR PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY

Given their balance of sonic virtues, and taking ease of use into account, I must conclude that the ADAM F7 deserves a very enthusiastic recommendation.

The briskness that comes out of these tiny speakers is very exciting. The X-ART tweeter with its extended high frequency range does a perfect job here. The bass response is surprisingly powerful in an utterly unobtrusive way. These monitors offer great sound for little money, a feature one can only recommend!

If you have always aspired to Adam monitors but found them beyond your budget, you may well find the F5s are just what you need, with the option of going for the F7s if you need something for a slightly larger room. It could just be that Adam have come up with a serious contender for ‚best in class‘ with the F5s.
