Driver Technology

A perfect horn needs the perfect driver.

Experience.

For more than 30 years,
we have been exclusively and intensively engaged in horn speaker technology.

Innovation.

A wealth of experience has been accumulated in our company,
which is unique and has made many fundamental innovations possible.

Engineering.

We use only the finest materials.
In the development and production we follow the principles of the highest quality German engineering.

The most advanced horn drivers ever.

For the new G3 Evolution driver series, we have spent over five years tweaking, experimenting, improving, measuring and listening.

Horn and driver were so perfectly matched and merge in the Evolution series to a coherent unit of superior quality.

Significantly more power.

The column of air inside the horn puts more resistance to the driver’s oscillation than speakers without a horn.

That’s why the new G3 Generation drivers are the most powerful we’ve ever made.

Precision down to the smallest detail.

Because the horn amplifies the sound extremely, distortions, i.e. the non-linearities of the driver, are also amplified accordingly.

All our efforts are therefore focused on perfecting each individual driver.

Hard fact: our most stable diaphragms ever.

With the counterpressure of the air column in the horn on the one hand and the extreme power development of the magnetic drive on the other, enormous forces act on the moving parts of the drive.

The TripleLayer Compound diaphragms with their rear and front anti-resonance coatings of the stiff Kevlar core are extremely stable and have the best absorption values in their class.

Spherical horns deserve spherical diaphragms.

The perfect dispersion of the sound waves is of crucial importance for the sound.

The spherical-dome geometry of the diaphragm of our drivers are precisely matched to the corresponding horn. A phase-coherent sound pressure curve within the horn is thus guaranteed.

The air as a filter.
The idea is as simple as it is ingenious.

AirGate is an innovative filter technology from Avantgarde based on the medium air, which filters high-frequency distortions of the system and reduces them by a factor of four.

Distortions thus simply dissolve into thin air.

27 Ohm. Probably a world record.

The higher the impedance of a loudspeaker, the higher the damping factor of the amplifier and therefore the greater the control of the music signal.

With up to 27 ohms of Omega voice coils, the sound of the Avantgarde systems have more authority, less distortion and a more precise response.

Robust as a rock.

The new SingleFrame chassis of the G3 series have robust cantilevers that also enclose the magnet.

This creates a solid mechanical bond as a stable base for the moving components of the driver.

Linear Force Suspension. When it comes to force, we are very pedantic.

Normally, the stiffness of the diaphragm clamping increases with the excursion the driver makes. This causes distortion.

To avoid these nonlinearities, we use a special suspension that has a linear stiffness up to the maximum excursion, so it doesn’t compress the dynamics.

Just like in life. It always comes down to the right timing.

We have significantly optimized the phase behavior of the drivers over their respective frequency range.

All frequencies are emitted with the correct timing. The spatiality of a recording is reproduced more precisely.
