The small A5 managed to make itself a big name in both professional environments as well as in computer or desktop applications.
Like all other models of the AX-Series the A5X features the proprietary X-ART tweeter. A 5.5-inch Midwoofer reproduces the frequencies below 2.5kHz. The diaphragm is made from Carbon fiber/Rohacell/Glass fiber, which is the same composite structure shared in the next two bigger models. With minimum weight and maximum rigidity, this material prevents break up resonances, resulting in an outstanding dynamic behavior and impeccable sound characteristics.
A very handy and exclusive feature found in the two smaller AX monitors is the Stereolink. This is accomplished by a pair of additional RCA connections that allow for a bypass of the second stereo channel to the other speaker.
This technology connects two A5X speakers and allows the user to control the overall stereo volume of the system from either speaker's gain control. This makes the A5X a natural for "mixer-less" desktop applications where overall system volume needs to be adjusted easily.
The Sub8 houses an excellent 8-inch woofer with a large 50mm voicecoil, and is driven by a 160W ICE Power amp. This amp stays cool while handling maximum power levels even if they are sustained.
The front baffle features two motorized knobs that let you tailor input level and crossover frequency settings for the best performance in your studio. These knobs can be controlled with an included wireless remote, allowing you to optimize your sound reproduction from your ideal listening position.
