The new Venture Series are ultra compact, high-definition active/passive loudspeakers. Featuring 12 & 15 inch 2-way cabinets and a matched 18 inch sub, their huge system power make them the ideal PA or stage monitor solution.
Weighing in at just 17kg (Venture 12) and peak power handling in excess of 1,500 watts their simplicity of use is only rivalled by the sonic impact, bass response and clarity they can produce. For a class leading PA system at “industry leading pricing” look no further.
The industrial grade 9-ply cabinets are internally braced and finished in wear-resistant black textured coating, with a steel front grille. A 60° rear bevel enables the 12 and 15 inch cabinets to also be used as stage monitors. The Class-D bi-amplified active cabs deliver a total of 600 watts rms power to the bass and HF drivers, with a peak system power rating of 1200 watts. All principal components – drivers, cabinet and integrated electronics – were designed specifically and matched meticulously for the Venture project. The resultant performance and sound quality has exceeded design expectations, with a smooth frequency response and highly accurate crossover points, and the ability to deliver that sound quality at high SPLs, in excess of 130dB.
A high efficiency switch-mode power supply provides ample reserve power for the class D amplifiers, ensuring their optimum performance; the amplifiers and power supply are a high efficiency design requiring no cooling fans. The one inch HF compression drivers feature a light alloy diaphragm and copper clad aluminium voice coil.
The active cabinets feature a 2-channel rear panel mixer section; one channel with balanced XLR mic and ¼ inch jack line inputs and the other with balanced XLR and stereo phono line level inputs. An XLR LINK line level output enables connection of additional speaker cabinets. There are master level and channel level controls, and green power-on and red peak LEDs. The 18SA sub features a balanced XLR input, a 100Hz hi pass filtered XLR output (to the mid/high cab) and XLR LINK output. Pole mount and M10 fly points, and fully recessed professional carry handles are all included.
The passive cabinets feature the same high quality construction and sound performance characteristics, and are rated at 800 watts program and 1600 watts peak power handling. Neodymium magnets are used in all drivers in the passive cabinets. Connectivity is with Speakon NL4 connectors throughout.
