The Adamson Y18
is the original and most powerful enclosure of the Y-Axis series. The Y-Axis series’ design was developed to eliminate mid lobing and comb filtering. With far greater control and coverage than any conventional PA system.
The Y-Axis series allows the end user a completely scalable system solution using 5-degree vertical elements and 100-degree horizontal coverage. The total vertical coverage is determined by the number of cabinets added to the array.

Adamson Y18 is a member of Y-Axis series which boasts far field sonic accuracy that sounds like “near field monitors at 50 meters.” The Y18 is a high power, 3-way line array cabinet employs two Adamson mid/high Co-Linear drive modules.
The Adamson drive module has a co-axial entrance and a co-linear exit comprised of a high frequency sound chamber mounted within a mid frequency sound chamber.
The drive module is powered by a proprietary 9” Kevlar mid and a single 1.5” HF compression driver. Together, the drive module, trapezoidal cabinet design with a wrap around grill - deliver a single, uniform, slightly curved, and seamless wavefront of mid and high frequency sound.
The Y18 LF section features two Adamson’s proprietary AW18 18” Kevlar drivers. The Y-Axis Series are the only line arrays that create iso-phase sound sources in the high and mid frequency sections Mid lobing, comb filtering and time-smear are virtually eliminated, giving the Adamson Y-Axis line array unrivaled far field sonic accuracy.
