All Venture crossover designs are first order (6db/Octave) crossovers. The crossover networks are hand built with point-to-point soldering and meet stringent quality control. Components are carefully selected and tested before and after assembly. Venture has been continually examining and testing new components for use in the speaker crossovers.
In order for first order crossovers to work properly, the crossovers must perform flawlessly and the drivers must meet the standards described in the section on Driver Technology. Otherwise, the sound will not be linear in phase or amplitude over the extended region of the crossover frequencies, resolution will be compromised and coherence will suffer.
