Avantone MixCube Active Full-Range Studio Monitors in Black (pair)

Active Shielded Mini-Reference Monitors In Gloss Black (PAIR)


The Avantone MixCube monitors are powered full-range mini reference monitors. Their awesome design was inspired by the legendary 5C Sound cubes found in many top studios around the world. The design has been tweaked to get a smooth, open and transparent tone.

Most studios primarily use bigger 2-way and 3-way monitors to mix their music, so that they can hear a full mix at higher listening levels and with multi driver setups. However, it is also useful to hear what you're mix will sound like with smaller speakers, so that you can check if the mix translates when heard on a car stereo, TV or other single driver system. The MixCube monitors are designed to offer a similar environment to these situations, whilst maintaining the clarity and depth of a reference monitor so that you can quickly and easily identify issues in your mix.


Balanced Input
This “combo XLR” input accepts a BALANCED male XLR plug as well as a 3-conductor BALANCED TRS ¼” or a 2 conductor UNBALANCED TS ¼” male plug. For unbalanced operation with a TS connector the minus signal is automatically grounded.

System Gain
This variable control adjusts the sensitivity of the signal that appears at the input. Rotating the control clockwise increases the sensitivity while a counter-clockwise rotation decreases sensitivity. The adjustable gain range is from -30 to +6 dB. A setting of +6 allows a full, unimpeded signal to be sent to the amplifier. The detented gain positions allow for repeatable settings between speakers for proper matching. Please Note… when the signal appearing at the input is too hot, the amplifier can overload causing distortion and possible damage to the speaker. If overload occurs, attenuate (decrease) the input level by turning the knob counter-clockwise a few clicks.

On/Off Switch
This illuminated switch turns the amplifier section on and off. The unit is still receiving power from the transformer however.

AC Input
This input is only to be use with the proprietary AVANTONE Power Supply. Tighten the cable/connector securely for reliable operation. Note: There is a switch on the power supply for selecting the proper AC/MAINS operating voltage for your location.

Ground Lift Switch
By engaging this switch the pin 1 shield is lifted at the input jack. This can be used to aid in ground loop control of the incoming analog line signal.

When positioning the Avantone Active MixCubes on stands or console bridges it is best to keep them at ear level and slightly angled in towards the engineer. Since they are shielded it is ok to place them near a CRT video monitor or TV without causing any problems. The bottom mic stand mounts will also allow you creative positioning options in unusual studio playback situations.
