The Avantone Active MixCube Powered Full-Range Mini Reference Monitors are a pair of professional studio reference monitors specifically tailored to produce the useful musical range of 90 Hz to 17 kHz.
While originally inspired by the 5C Sound Cubes from decades ago, the Avantone Mixcubes have become the industry standard in studios around the world and have become the #1 best selling speaker of its type in history. Application: Active Recording / Mixdown Monitors. Engineering Objective: The Avantone Active Mixcubes are designed to be high-resolution, full-range, powered mini reference monitors for fixed or remote locations. The secondary engineering facet was to create a timeless design that compliments a single full-range transducer. Performance Objective: Studios primarily use 2-way & 3-way larger monitors designed to represent a wide range reference viewpoint at higher listening levels. However, in this newly developing area of High-Definition Audio, there is still a need to also 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. Ten 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 rom the original 5C Sound Cubes. Listening tests reveal that the MixCubes have a smooth, more open, transparent top end response with extended bass while maintaining their basic original character.
