Avantone Active MixCube Mini Reference Monitor - Cream, Pair

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
MFR# A

Product Description

We’ve all been there: the mix sounds perfect — tweaked to perfection. And then the moment you hear it in your car, you realize it sounds awful. How many times are you going to go back and forth before loosing your mind?! That’s exactly what the Avantone Active Mixcube is built to do: save your sanity. Mixcubes are designed to be a perfect stereo matching pair of monitors to replicate the wide range of “bass-challenged” devices such as car stereos, TVs, clock radios, computers, Bluetooth devices, etc.

Avantone Mixcube Actives are a huge upgrade from the original 5C Sound Cubes; from a newly engineered cabinet, to a more smooth, open, and transparent driver — and now with an over-engineered power amplifier. The bass response has been extended ever so slightly as well, but the original character has been maintained.

Mixcube Actives: the monitor for the most demanding workflow.

A REDUCED ELECTRONIC PATH WITH A PRECISION DRIVER

The original 5C Sound Cubes are known for always doing the job, but Avantone didn't stop there. They designed a proprietary 5.25” die cast, polished aluminum frame driver/cone assembly to exceed the performance of the originals.

The paper cone is custom designed & crafted using the finest New Zealand pulp with mica fibers added for lighter weight & rigidity. The cloth surround is made in Japan to exacting and uniform thickness. The Top Plate and T-Yoke of the driver are made of Sumitomo 1008 low-carbon steel, enabling the highest modeled flux density in the gap. The magnets are Y- 40 GRADE (MIL-SPEC) yielding a 43oz. high-power, low-distortion motor structure.

THE LITTLE MONITORING SOLUTION YOU’VE BEEN MISSING

Avantone designed the amp module from the ground up to be a true professional-grade amplifier. It incorporates “overkill” concepts in component selection as well as safety. The result is a “no-compromise” amp with robust headroom characteristics that will rival the performance of much higher priced studio rack mount amps.

Avantone Mixcube Actives are built with a dense MDF board, due to it’s low-resonance characteristics. The input posts are high-end, nickel plated and are dual-banana spaced on an aluminum terminal plate. The bottom of the cabinet has a 7mm thick neoprene pad to serve as a skid-resistant acoustic isolator.

Out of desk space to add more monitors to your rig? Maybe you need to set them up quickly, and on-location. Mixcubes have you covered: their base included a recessed, industry-standard 5/8”-27 mic stand mount. Just grab a spare mic stand, and you’re good to go!

Add that mounting capability with the cabinet’s internal-shielding, and you can expect low-noise issues anywhere you set them up. Mixcube Actives: the perfect solution to round-out your monitoring setup.

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.
