Driver Technology

A perfect horn needs a perfect driver

The most advanced horn drivers ever.

We have spent over five years refining, experimenting, improving, measuring, and listening to the new G3 Evolution driver series. The horn and driver are perfectly matched, and the Evolution Series forms a coherent unity of outstanding quality.

Significantly more power.

The air column inside the horn provides more resistance to the driver’s vibrations than with 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

The horn amplifies the sound to an extreme degree. As a result, distortions, i.e., the non-linearities of the driver, are also amplified.

All our efforts are therefore directed towards perfecting each individual driver.

Hard fact: our most stable membranes to date

With the counter-pressure 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 are exerted on the moving parts within the drive.

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

Spherical horns deserve spherical membranes.

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

The spherical dome geometry of the driver diaphragm is precisely matched to each horn. This ensures a phase-coherent sound pressure response within the horn.

The air as a filter

The idea is as simple as it is ingenious.

AirGate is an innovative air-based filter technology from Avantgarde that filters out high frequency distortion from the system and reduces it fourfold. Distortion simply disappears.

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 over the music signal. With up to 27 Ohm Omega voice coils, the sound has more authority, less distortion, and a more precise response.

Solid as a rock.

The new SingleFrame G3 Series chassis feature robust brackets that also enclose the magnet. This creates a strong mechanical bond that provides a stable base for the driver’s moving components.

Linear Force Suspension.

When it comes to power, we are very pedantic.

Normally, the stiffness of the diaphragm suspension increases with the stroke of the driver. This causes distortion. In order to avoid this power dependent non-linearity, we use a special suspension that has a linear stiffness up to the maximum stroke, thus not compressing the dynamics.

As in life

As in life, it all comes down to timing.

We have significantly optimized the phase response of the drivers across their respective frequency ranges. All frequencies are emitted in the correct time. The three-dimensionality of a recording is reproduced more precisely.
