The Avantone MixTower allows the best of both worlds

The Avantone Pro MixTower loudspeaker system, is an extension of the renowned Avantone MixCube. Many production environments do not have the space for multiple speaker systems, so Avantone developed the MixTower as a dual purpose monitor. 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 MixCube. Switched into three way mode, via the convenient foot-switch, the MixCube section is complemented by a 5.25" woofer and high quality air motion transformer, 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. Included are precise, no-compromise drivers, in a compact format that complements modern production environments. 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.
