The ADAM Audio T10S is a 10-inch studio subwoofer specially designed for the T-Series, but can also be connected to other studio monitors. Frequencies hear up to 28Hz, that's what the ADAM Audio T10S was made for. With the T7V it goes up to 39Hz and with the T5V up to 45Hz. By working with the ADAM Audio T10S you can therefore perceive a wider frequency spectrum, but above all more clearly.
The subwoofer goes low down to 28Hz and through to 120Hz, which you can also limit to 80Hz with a crossover filter switch on the back. The subwoofer amplifies a total of 130 watts, which is a lot and more than enough for the average studio.
Connecting the subwoofer is easy, you need an extra set of cables for this. From your audio interface, the cabling goes to your subwoofer and from your subwoofer back to the studio monitors. This can be done via XLR but also with RCA.
If you use the ADAM Audio T10S subwoofer while making music, it is nice if you can quickly switch between the subwoofer on/off. This is possible with a bypass foot pedal – unfortunately this is not included and can be purchased separately. We definitely recommend this, so that you know how it sounds without a subwoofer and you can quickly make the switch.
The build quality
The woofer itself is nicely concealed at the bottom, so that it is not visible. You don't see much from the outside and it's very minimalistic – which we like. The legs are sturdy and also provide support to reduce vibration, they are very flexible.
The outside is made of wood with a black lacquer, which looks sleek. In general, the studio subwoofer is very sturdy, without any loose parts that start to vibrate.
Together with the T-Series you can really ensure that your studio monitors sound even better. Because there is less pressure on the studio monitors to reproduce such low frequencies, we notice a quieter mid-low spectrum with the T5Vs.
In addition, the sound of the ADAM Audio T10S is perfect in combination with the T-Series monitors. A very deep and clean layer in agreement with the ribbon tweeters in the T-Series makes for an impressive whole. A very nice addition to your studio monitors!
All in all, Adam Audio did a very good job of putting down this product for this price. In terms of experience and valuable information when making music, the ADAM Audio T10S performs very well, a nice deep low and especially in combination with the T5V, T7V or the new T8V Studio monitor. It is a pity that you have to look for a switch to bypass yourself. Keep in mind that you will also need to purchase bass traps to keep the low frequencies under control in your room. ADAM Audio is very confident about the quality and therefore gives a 5 year warranty on all products that are registered, on this page there is more information.
You won't know what you're missing until you experience it yourself in your studio, we are impressed!
