Beginning in 2001, Venture engaged in research and development program leading its ability to design and fabricate its own drivers. The driver technology developed during that R&D program lead to the following 3 types of dynamic drivers.
The cones of the 2 first types of drivers are made with tiny graphite particles uniformly dispersed in a resin or pulp to form a graphite composite matrix.
Depending on the type of driver, long fibers of carbon or abaca are embedded in the graphite composite mix, in a proprietary pattern. The cones are then encased in a mold and cured at high temperatures. A graphite composite matrix is mandatory to achieve optimal damping.
The first type of driver has long carbon fibers embedded in a graphite composite cone, in a proprietary pattern. Long fibers provide the stiffness needed for the cone to act as a piston in its primary oscillating motion. Since carbon fibers are very low in mass they also help minimize the weight of the cone. Thus the result is a light weight driver that is very fast with excellent dynamics, resolution and a natural sound.
This type of driver is called the Carbon Fiber Graphite Composite or CFGC for brevity.
The second type of drivers utilizes an Abaca pulp to form the graphite composite matrix. The long Abaca fibers are also derived from the stems of the Abaca tree, which is native in the Phillipines.
Therefore, the Abaca based cones basically have the same construction and performance characteristics as the CFGC Carbon Fiber resin based cones. Abaca is one of the materials that are used to produce security and specialized paper, which are well known for their flexibility and durability.
Not only are these cones durable, but they are stiff, light weight and very natural sounding.
This type of driver is called the Abaca Graphite Composite, or AGC Driver for brevity.
The last but not least type is the newest Beryllium driver, which for now only is applied to the 32 mm Tweeter, used in the Quantum Active speaker series.
This tweeter can reach a SPL of over 100 dB/2.83 V! This is exceptionally high and it is the only tweeter in the world who can achieve that.
