Since Yamaha® discontinued the iconic NS10M, the supply of aftermarket components has become more and more expensive and less and less available. Avantone Pro has done an exact reverse engineering of the original drivers. Using our global resources and decade of experience in driver constructed, we have reproduced the components faithfully, while upgrading components for longer life, and updating materials to comply with environmental requirements.
The AV10 MXO is a direct bolt in replacement for the original crossover designed to be a quick and easy swap with minimal tools needed. The rear panel is an upgraded aluminum compared to the original plastic for better rigidity and all units ship with a replacement gasket to ensure an airtight seal. All crossovers also ship with wires and spade connectors connected to make the swap as quick and easy as possible. We changed the rear terminal plate to use a better grade of binding post connector for the best connection available. The crossover network uses the same value capacitors as the original circuit – just a better grade of material and rating. The inductors exactly match the original in dc resistance, winding dimensions and value.
We’ve worked tirelessly to bring this classic monitor system back to the world — but it took more than just recreating a single speaker. A tremendous amount of attention has been put into every detail: matching the original MDF and wood veneer for the cabinet, matching the original winding dimensions/value/dc resistance of the inductors, profiling the most popular amplifier pairings of the original, just to name a few things. All of this development has culminated into a slew of monitor solutions.
