The Avantone MixCube Active Studio Monitors were inspired by the original 5C Sound Cubes that are still in use worldwide. These self-powered MixCube Monitors feature some of the same design elements as their inspiration but offer an improved more linear frequency response.
Design The full range rugged mini-reference monitors feature a cabinet design made from dense MDF for high rigidity and inherent low-resonance characteristics finished with a black Polyurethane high gloss. The Mixcubes also feature high-end nickel plated machined solid metal binding posts (Dual banana spacing) mounted on a black anodized milled and silk-screened aluminum terminal plate. On the base of each Mixcube there is a 7mm thick neoprene pad to serve as a skid-resistant acoustic isolator. Additionally for creative mounting situations an industry standard 5/8″-27 mic stand mount is fitted into the base. Driver Performance The 5.25″ die cast aluminum frame driver/cone assembly exceeds the performance of the original 5C Sound Cubes. The mounting bezel is then polished for an elegant appearance. The custom designed paper cone is chosen for its musical character and is crafted using the finest New Zealand pulp with mica fibers making it sturdy yet lightweight. The cloth surround is made in Japan to exacting uniform thickness tolerances. The Top Plate and T-Yoke of 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. Placement The shielded aspect of the Avantone Active Mixcubes means that they can be placed near a TV or CRT video monitor without causing any problems due to interference. The ideal position for these studio monitors is for them to be kept at ear level and slightly angled towards the engineer. The bottom mic stand mounts will also allow you creative positioning options in unusual studio playback situations. Enjoy a smooth more open transparent top end response and extended bass with the Avantone Mixcubes. It is important to make mixing judgments based on the clearest audio possible such as that from studio monitors rather than smaller “bass-challenged” systems such as televisions clock radios computers car stereos and iPod docking stations.
