The Auratone 5C's are the original super sound cubes used for decades as recording studio monitor speakers. Black Finish
After lengthy testing and remanufacturing our driver, we finally were able to achieve the purest sound equalling the sound of the original 5C Super Sound Cube. All componets of our driver are made of the highest quality materials in the United States. The cabinet is built with black laminate and quality craftsmanship.
The 5C, which became famous in the 1970's and 80's and has been used in virtually every major recording studio worldwide, is still the undisputed industry standard for "real world" referencing in the recording studio.
Durability, flat full-range response, amazing power handling and portability have made AURATONES the Recording, Broadcasting, and Motion Picture industries favorite "mixdown monitors." . . . for comparison and final mixes, auditioning, remotes, and reference standard speakers.
After years of mixing on both large 3-way & various 2-way near-field monitors, I finally decided to try these little guys out as I always seem to struggle with the low end. My FIRST quick mix using them I was able to quickly get a handle on the low end! If you can make the bass punch on Auratones, it'll translate. Also surprised at how good the imaging is on these. I'm now wondering why I did not pull the trigger on a pair or these years ago!
