Avantone CLA10A

The Avantone Pro CLA10A brings you the most faithful reproduction of the world’s most iconic studio monitor. Now everyone can mix on the monitors that define “the hitmaker sound”. A tremendous amount of design work and exacting detail have finally made the “white cone” monitors available to everyone! And now the world has finally gotten what it always asked for — an active-powered version: the CLA-10A! Black box. White cone. High-range frequency. It’s not known as the world’s best — it’s known for being the world’s best reference — the sound that creates hits.

The Original Drivers for the Original Sound

>

Since the “white cone” studio monitor was discontinued, the supply of aftermarket components have become more and more expensive and less and less available. Avantone Pro has created a near exact recreation of the original drivers. Using our global resources and decade of experience in driver construction, we have reproduced the components faithfully, updating the materials to comply with modern environmental requirements.

The “White Cone” has returned — with lots of power!

The AV10-MHF tweeter dome went through a difficult engineering process to get the exact phenolic resin doping to match the original performance curve. The AV10-MLF woofer uses custom tooled mechanical parts that mirror the original. We worked closely with one of the original vendors of the original cone to get the exact same stiffness and weight. The only difference from the original is that we use a pressed cone as opposed to a lapped. This allows for tighter matching in every cone we build — meaning this is the first time matched pairs have been available!

Both replacement drivers are physically and dimensionally exactly the same as the originals and are “bolt in” hassle-free installation.

Available For the First Time in an Active Configuration

One of the most common questions asked about the CLA-10A’s is which version of the originals are they based on, and the answer is: all of them! The CLA-10A’s have an all new “VTPC” knob or “Variable Tissue Paper Control.” This VTPC allows you to simulate anything from the Vertical “m” model to the horizontal “Studio” model and everything in between. No more debate over the best tissue paper to use — VTPC has you covered!

Avantone Pro decided to stay traditional with a linear power supply implementing a massive old school toroidal transformer in order to maintain the legacy sound. The CLA-10A uses a monolithic Class AB amplifier. At low power, THD is a phenomenal 0.005%; at rated load it is 0.1%, yielding excellent performance compared to class D amps. The system yields a rock solid 200WRMS.

  • Re-creation of the ubiquitous white-coned studio monitor that engineers have sworn by for decades
  • Mid-heavy sound exposes every shortcoming of your mix
  • Physically and sonically identical to the original design
  • Hundreds of hours of testing ensure as close a match as possible
  • All components were reverse-engineered from the original speaker for an exact frequency match
  • Tweeter dome uses the same phenolic resin doping to match the original’s performance curve
  • Woofer uses custom-tooled mechanical parts that mirror the original
  • Crossover network uses the same value capacitors
  • Inductors match the original in DC resistance, winding dimensions, and value
  • Uses numerous higher-grade components than the original for tighter production tolerance and ROHS and WEEE compliance
