The S3X-V combines the X-ART tweeter with a 4.5" HexaCone midrange speaker and 9" HexaCone woofer in a studio monitor that impresses with its well-balanced and supremely detailed sound. Whether it is a complex sounding large orchestra or the subtle sound of a jazz trio, the S3X-V meticulously reveals even the finest nuances in the source material. The combination of our in-house developed A/B amplifier with the X-ART tweeter allows for maximum precision in the higher frequencies. The tonal depth and the sweet spot are easy to perceive. Stereo image and sound detail are revealed with full effect, particularly at longer listening distances. The 250 Watt PWM amplifiers of the woofer and midrange drivers working in conjunction with the 50 Watt tweeter amplifier enable the S3X-V to achieve an impressive maximum SPL of over 124dB per pair at 1 meter.

Almost ZERO talk about Hedd Type 30 or 20

Personally I don't think you can compare the HEDD Type 20 3 way to the Adam S3X-V 4 way. It should really be a comparison against the the HEDD Type 30 4 way. I owed a pair of the Adam S3X-V for years and switched over to the HEDD Type 20's. After demoing them, I...
