Avantone MixCubes Active Mini-Reference Monitor (Single)

The Avantone Active MixCubes are shielded, full-range mini reference monitors, inspired by the legacy of the 5C Sound Cubes used in virtually all-major studios for the last 25 years.

The Avantone Active MixCubes are shielded, high resolution, full-range powered mini-reference monitors for use in fixed or remote locations. And the aesthetic design of the Avantone Active MixCubes manifests in a timeless design that compliments a single full range transducer.

Studios primarily use 2-way & 3-way large monitors designed to represent a wide range reference viewpoint at higher listening levels. However, in the newly developing age of High Definition Audio, there is still a need to hear what your mix will sound like when played back over small "bass-challenged" systems such as televisions, clock radios, computers, car stereos, ipod docking stations, etc. It is important to make mixing judgments based partially on listening to reference monitors that will not impart tonal anomalies caused by crossovers or inferior full range drivers. Particular attention is always paid to the critical mid-range vocal/guitar/keyboard areas. This is where having a full-range monitor without a crossover is truly revealing.

More than twelve months of R&D, comparative listening & tweaking went into the voicing of the Avantone MixCubes. The result is a very smooth sounding, full range upgrade from those old familiar 5C Sound Cubes engineers were so fond of in the 1980's-1990's. Listening tests reveal that the Mix Cubes have a smoother midrange, more accurate, transparent top end response with extended bass while maintaining the basic characteristics of those original little cubes.

Constructed of non-layered, high rigidity MDF board due to its natural low-resonance characteristics. All cabinet edges are radiused. Elegent Polyurethane high gloss "Butter Cream" finish. 7mm thick neoprene pad embedded into the base of the cabinet serves as a skid-resistant acoustic isolator. For creative mounting solutions, we recessed an industry standard 5/8"-27 mic stand mount into the base.

The paper cone (chosen for its musical character) was custom designed utilizing the latest in FEA modeling and "old-school" speaker design artistry. The finest New Zealand pulp material is blended with mica fibers for rigidity and longevity. The cloth surround material is made in Japan and has unique damping characteristics, enabling a predictable compliance over the lifespan of the driver. The motor structure is made of certified 1008 low carbon steel by Sumitomo. The magnets are Y-40 GRADE (MIL-SPEC) yielding a 43 oz High-power/low-distortion motor structure. The proprietary 5.25" die-cast aluminum frame supports the driver/cone minimizing mechanical transfers. The outer mounting face of the aluminum frame is polished for an elegant appearance.

Much needed! October 10, 2014
Reviewer: john from center cross, VA United States  
The Avantone mixcube is a powerful mixing tool for me.  We broke it in with the song "Kung-Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas.  This song had all the necessary elements for the 48-hour break-in period.  The downfall was my wife's inability to stop humming the song out loud!  But alas, the mid range focus is invaluable!
