The Avantone Mix Tower Active 3-Way Studio Monitor (Single) is designed for professional mixing and mastering applications.
Many modern production environments do not have the space for multiple speaker systems, so Avantone developed the MixTower, a dual purpose monitor and loudspeaker system that is an extension of their renowned AVANTONE MIXCUBE. The custom MixCube driver is mounted in an isolated box the exact dimensions of the MixCube. Run in MixCube mode, the driver responds full range, just like the original MixCube. Run in 3-way mode, the driver is crossed over at 120Hz and 8000Hz to give the system a more natural studio monitor sound.
The AVANTONE MIXTOWER Studio Reference Monitors are designed to be dynamic, high SPL, high resolution, full-range active reference monitors. Avantone has included precise, no-compromise drivers in a compact format that complements modern production environments. Providing two distinct modes of operation, the MixTower allows full range monitoring and MixCube mode.
Studios primarily use 2-way and 3-way large monitors designed to represent a wide range reference viewpoint at higher listening levels. However, in the newly developing age of High Definition Audio, there is still a need to hear what your mix will sound like when played back over small "bass-challenged" systems such as televisions, clock radios, computers, car stereos, iPod docking stations, etc.
It is important to make mixing judgments based partially on listening to reference monitors that will not impart tonal anomalies caused by crossovers or inferior full range drivers. Particular attention is always paid to the critical mid-range vocal/guitar/keyboard areas. This is where having a full-range monitor without a crossover is truly revealing.
The Avantone MixTower allows the best of both worlds. Switching seamlessly between the original MixCube system and a full range system all in one stylish studio monitor. The MixCube is isolated in its own enclosure, identical to our existing design, and complemented by a 5.25" woofer and high quality air motion transformer activated by the included footswitch.
