Take in account that the CMS65 claim is actually a FACT! They have been measured to go to 45Hz at -3dB and 35Hz at -10dB. (there's an article around somewhere on the Focal site, by some reviewer)
I haven't seen such objective measuring about the Adams yet.
The thing is, not much people have heard the Adam A8X yet. They weren't around, when I bought my CMS 65's, but were released a few months later.
Versus the ADAM A7's, the CMS 65 clearly wins in the low extension (and clarity)... I'm curious to see how the CMS65's stack up against the A7X and A8X's.
