U-ART™ High Frequency Driver

U-ART tweeter with HPS waveguide as used in the T Series from ADAM Audio

The new U-ART 1.9” accelerated ribbon tweeter, as used in the T Series, is made of a high-tech polymide film and provides pristine and extended high-frequency response up to 25 kHz—virtually unheard of in monitors in this price range, and a breakthrough solution for use in high-resolution recording and mixing on a budget. Unlike a conventional dome or cone tweeter that uses a piston action to move air and reproduce sound, the U-ART tweeter uses a pleated ribbon that alternately draws air into its folds and squeezes it out as the folds respectively expand apart and press together in response to inputted audio signal. This design produces four times as much air movement as does a piston-based design, creating higher sound pressure levels (SPLs) with lower distortion.

The U-ART tweeter is fitted to a precision waveguide with the same dispersion-control attributes as the High Frequency Propagation (HPS) waveguide used in ADAM Audio’s flagship S Series studio monitors. The waveguide’s highly uniform dispersion of high frequencies provides an incredibly wide sweet spot that frees you from being glued to a rigid mix position while working.
