Auratone 5C Active Super Sound Cube - Pair, Black

Timeless active monitor pair made famous in the 1970s and 80s now with an integrated mono amplifier designed and built in collaboration with Bettermaker

MFR# 5C Active Black

Product Description

After years of requests, Auratone has engineered the 5C Active Super Sound Cube, the triumphant return of an iconic speaker. Finally, TEC award-winning speakers are available in an active format with a custom amplifier from Bettermaker. Auratone’s Super Sound Cube speakers were made famous in the 70s and 80s and continue to be the industry standard for referencing in recording studios around the world. Once the original speakers ceased manufacturing, the gap in the marketplace was palpable. But Jack Wilson’s grandson has resumed production on the famed reference speakers, preserving Auratone’s family-owned legacy and making them better than ever.

The Auratone 5C Active Super Sound Cube takes the original Super Sound Cube’s timeless design and improves upon it with this active version, ensuring the amplifier and speakers are perfectly matched. The 5C Active Super Sound Sub contains an integrated award-winning mono amplifier, a twist on Auratone’s A2-30 dual-channel amplifier which was designed and built in Europe in collaboration with Bettermaker. The amplifier uses an enclosure — hand crafted in Auratone’s Nashville shop — with the same dimensions as the passive 5C. Additionally, the 5C Active Super Sound Cube uses an external DC power supply for optimal overcurrent, and protection against overheating, so you can listen to your mixes without worry.

Just like the original speakers, this 5C Active Super Sound Cube pair is perfect for mixing, “real world” referencing, or simply listening to music. The Super Sound Cube is an industry standard in broadcasting, the film industry, and recording studios alike. These speakers are durable and portable, with a flat full-range response and fantastic power handling. The 5C Active Super Sound Cube’s drivers are custom built in the United States, where each speaker is also assembled and tested in Auratone’s shop. So don’t wait! Order yours here from Vintage King Audio.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
