CVEN 6 Component Speakers Support Manual
The CVEN speakers were designed by the Vibe Research and Development team of UK
and European engineers headed by company founder Carl Venables.
The design brief was to create both a two way and a three way component speaker that
delivers a realistic reproduction of recorded sound.
Each component of the system is matched and balanced to produce a linear frequency
response which enables the listener to appreciate music as the artist originally intended.

CVEN 6 MIDWOOFER
The CVEN 6 has a wide and flat frequency response, enabling it to be common to both a
two way and three way component kit.
The midwoofer is designed to overcome the inherent problems of every loudspeaker
design: distortion, power handling, dynamic response and efficiency.
VIBE understand that the key to high quality audio reproduction is matching and
balancing the magnet, basket, voice coil, spider, cone and surround.
With twenty two years of design experience we believe we have created our best
sounding loudspeaker to date.
CVEN 6 FEATURES
• Aluminium field-stabilizing ring inside magnet assembly for reduced high-level
distortion
• Vented voice coil former for reduced distortion and compression
• New vented chassis for lower air flow speed reducing audible distortion
• Heavy-duty black fibreglass voice coil bobbin to increase power handling and reduce
mechanical losses resulting in better dynamic performance and low-level details

it is generally a rough simplification to assume that loudspeaker transducer voice coils exhibit the characteristics of an inductor. Instead it
is a farmore accurate approach to use the more advanced model often referred to as the “Wright empirical model”, also used in LEAP-4

CVEN 1 TWEETER
The CVEN 1 features a 22 mm voice coil and wide surround which delivers an extended
bandwidth that would usually require multiple drivers to achieve.
Featured with a rear chamber these compact tweeters offer very low resonance
frequency which further increases the tweeters ability to produce frequencies thought
impossible by a driver of this size.
In order to keep distortion and resonance frequency low the CVEN 1 Tweeter is designed
around an external neodymium ring magnet in order to allows for a larger internal
volume than that of traditional neodymium tweeters providing improved frequency
response .
CVEN 1 FEATURES
• 22 mm design for optimal compromise between on- and off-axis frequency response,
resonance frequency, and power handling
• Rear chamber for low resonance frequency and reduced distortion
• Outside ring neodymium magnet for lower resonance frequency and distortion
• Precision-coated textile diaphragm for improved consistency and high-frequency
extension
• Optimized dome shape for ultra high frequency cutoff
• Vented voice coil former for reduced distortion and compression
• Copper-clad aluminium voice coil wire offering lower moving mass for improved
efficiency and transient response
• Build-in cavities under dome/edge to equalize pressure for lower distortion and lower
resonance frequency
• Flexible lead wires for higher power handling and larger excursion
• Large hexagon mesh grille secured by the magnetic force of the motor allows easy
removal for ultimate purity of sound
• Gold plated terminals to prevent oxidation and ensure long-term reliable connection

PASSIVE CROSSOVER
Many speaker designs hide behind a veil of crossover components which can add colour
and reduce efficiency in even the best engineered product.
The CVEN two way system is different. An exquisitely designed and tuned tweeter
purposefully matches the roll off frequency of the CVEN midwoofer.
In doing so it produces an almost linear frequency response without the need for a
crossover.
PASSIVE CROSSOVER FEATURES
Protection is the only requirement, therefore, a Mundorf reference capacitor is included
in each kit.
A three way system requires much more filtering, however, our philosophy is to use only
a single Mundorf reference capacitor to provide protection for the tweeter with a
polyswitch added as an additional safeguard.
There is an optional 90Hz high pass filter selectable via high current gold plated jumpers
adding further functionality.
• Single Mundorf reference capacitor for tweeter high pass filter
• High current gold plated Jumpers
• Selectable 90Hz 6dB high pass filter for the low frequency channel
• Inductor coils specifically orientated to provide minimal crosstalk and improved sound
quality.
• High grade plexiglass top cover
• Gold plated screw down speaker connectors prevent oxidation and ensure long-term
reliable connection

NOTE :
In most situations the tweeter
wired out of phase with the
midwoofer will produce the
most natural sounding vocal
performance.
It is recommended that experimentation of both
in phase and out of phase configurations in the
vehicle is required in order to achieve the best
results.
