ADAM Audio has introduced the T10S powered subwoofer. The compact 10″ woofer is designed to enhance the bass response of nearfield monitors, specifically the company’s own T5V and T7V. If you have a pair of small monitors and the bass doesn’t quite cut it, it may be worth a look.
10″ powered subwoofer
The ADAM T10S is equipped with a downward-facing 10″ speaker powered by a 130W class D amplifier. ADAM states a frequency response of 28 – 120Hz and a max. SPL of 104dB. The enclosure rests on four rubber feet and has a large bass reflex hole. ADAM claims that it’s one of the smallest subwoofers in its class, which means that you should have no problem finding a space for it, even in a small studio.
Three crossover settings
At the back, the subwoofer has stereo XLR and RCA inputs and outputs. Next to the level control, there’s a switch offering three crossover settings (80Hz, 120Hz, bypass), and a phase inversion switch. The T10S also features a foot switch jack, which you can use to temporarily bypass the subwoofer and listen to your mix through the nearfields only.
At a retail price of just under 400 Euros, the ADAM T10S is really quite affordable. In this price range, it is a direct competitor to the Mackie MRS10, KRK 10S2, JBL LSR 310 S, and Presonus Temblor T10, among others.
Price and availability
The ADAM Audio T10S subwoofer is available now. The MSRP is EUR 449, but it appears that retailers will be offering it for less than 400 Euros.
