ADAM Sub8 ?

Im currently considering buying a sub to go with my ADAM P33A's. I would really love to mate them with a sub10 but at the moment , my funds wont permit me to afford it. I started looking around for info on the sub8 and really cant find alot on it. for the price of a sub10 you could get 2 sub8's. So I figured it might be a good Idea to get one now and maybe purchase the second in the near future.
Has anybody around here spent a good amount of time with the sub8 that could comment on it ? My mix room is small (12'x15') so I would think the sub8 might work well in my room.
any suggestions would be appreciated !

I recently asked about the Sub8 here but didn't get a response. I wonder how it would perform with Genelec 1029As as an alternative to the more expensive Genelec 7050B Sub?

Yeah its kinda strange how there isnt very much info around about this. The price seems very good , I just wonder what the catch is considering they are half the price of the sub10 mkII. It would be nice to be able to demo one but nobody local here carries the ADAM line.

I don't use a sub much in the studio, but if you want to call me I'd be more than happy to try and answer any questions you may have.

hello.


i had a similar enquiry, this is what adam germany said:

"...Indeed, Sub8 was especially designed as a match for ANF10 and A7.
The typical Sub for the P33A would be the Sub10.
Should you have a very small control room like < 12 m2, then a Sub8 will do
as well (independent from the monitors you are using), is your room > 12 m2
then take a Sub10 into account.
As all ADAM subs have a variable low cut filter you can adapt to the
A7 or P33A in any case. All subwoofers work properly in a 2.1 set up or in a
5.1 configuration, so there is no problem with stereo set ups at all.

Hope this helps. Thanks again for your inquiry and for choosing the ADAM's...."

I bought the sub10 about a month ago for my P22a's. I love it! My mix room is only 12' x 16'.

not sure if you saw this thread b4, i have some comments at the end:

Adam S3A + Sub

i've got dual sub10's but with the s3a's, not the p33's, so ymmv. i like them, but at the end of the day they are subs, which are always tough to mix (i don't mix btw, i use them to write and ref mix). the 7071 seemed tighter stronger to me (one-to-one), and the gennie bass management sounded better and was easier to set-up inho, but the sub 10's give you more flexibility with crossover and volume control (could be good or bad depending on how committed you are in setting them up correctly).

the sub10 design doesn't seem anything special to me, just a regular bottom ported sub but it still works for my purposes. the price seemed right and i like two drivers working less than a single driver.

if you've mixed with detached subs before they're decent, but as with any setup like this don't expect anything super tight. i just like to pop them in occasionally and hear what's going on down there.

I thought that with 2 subs you get much better integration than with just one. Taking in count all these mastering guys with 2 subs..

i recently got some adam a7s and wanted to get a sub8 but budget wouldnt allow, but they sound pretty damn good paired with my krk rp10s i was using before

would i see that big of an improvement in the low end with the sub8? worth the extra cash? i feel like subs just kinda rumble around and i dont keep mine that loud anyway

Depends on your room treatment and monitor placement.

about the connection question above, there are different options. Best you download the manual and see what fits you.

About mixing with a sub, tight bass sound and room response:
I have heard this as well. "Subs are too slow." Mybe that´s because they go deeper than most normal speakers? Deep means slow in terms of audio.
Not sure what to think of that.
I don´t own a sub, yet, so that´s why i read this post.
Ok, on thing is, I expect it to give me that extra octave.
Bit most important, i look forward to moving it around and measuring. It should be easy to place the bass below 60hz somewhere it produces the least amount of modal ringing (and thereby making the sound tighter). I am only down to less than 400ms down to 50hz with the help of trapping, but at 35hz-45hz there is a bad modal action. So if i place the sub right i can reduce that.
Tighter sound and AT THE SAME TIME have all the benefits of my monitors being at a position that sounds open and wide (without them hitting those 40hz).
That to me sounds like a huge benefit.
So will it be the Sub10 for me or something else...
Maybe two Sub8s?
Anyone know these 13":
Nubert - nuBox AW-991 Aktiv-Subwoofer
Sorry, german only. They are Hifi, and a lot of people in that domain like them. Maybe they would be an alternative...
