A Mini Monitoring Marvel for Accurate Mixes

The AVANTONE MixCubes mini reference monitors give you the ability to hear what your mixes will sound like on bass-challenged real-world systems such as computers, televisions, car stereos, and iPod docking stations. These full-range, active MixCubes are 6-1/2" tall, and each contains a 5-1/4" speaker that provides excellent sound reproduction for great reference mixing. The cabinets are shielded, so you can place them next to computer monitors. For making high-quality, accurate mixes that sound great on any system, use the MixCubes to complete your monitor setup!

AVANTONE MixCubes Active Mini Reference Monitors at a Glance:
  • Active design
  • Realistic Sound

Active design
These MixCubes are active, meaning they have their own 60-watt amplifier built in, so they don't draw power from your computer.

Realistic sound
Mini reference monitors, like the MixCubes give you an idea of what your mix will sound like in real-world listening situations - like stock TV and computer speakers, and basic car stereos, and earbuds. If you want to create a professional-sounding mix that will translate everywhere, you've got to give it the real-world test. These MixCubes are an excellent (and stylish!) set of B speakers designed to tell you the truth about where your vocals, and bass truly sit in the mix.

Great buy

Happy with the Avantones for auditioning your mix in mono and for other mediums.

VERY revealing.

Just got these from Sweetwater. When you first hear them in a studio context, you're like "Where did all the bass go?", but that's how people actually hear most music!!! These speakers have been fascinating to listen to old mixes on. Panning and level decisions that were hard to discern before are now much more obvious. You would never want these speakers as your only speakers, but I now consider them essential. I am totally happy with this purchase.

Mixcubes Are Lifesavers

I was skeptical at first but once I got these guys up and running (and burnt in) I was amazed how easy it was to listen through these in mono and hear everything going on in the mix from levels to mid range mud. If you can make it sound good on these, it will sound good anywhere. I use them more than my mains now. If you are having trouble with translation from your room to your car / ipod definitely try these out. They will open your eyes and make it possible for you to hear clearly without question what is happening in your mix.
