Cerwin Vega introduces subwoofers with 21" and 18" drivers
|Cerwin Vega introduced its new line of professional active subwoofers at Musikmesse Frankfurt 2007. The Cerwin-Vega Active Series consists of two unique models, CVA-121 and CVA-118, featuring Cerwin Vega’s acknowledged driver design and bass performance, incorporated in a small compact footprint. Built-in amplifiers provide a completely integrated active system, and a functional cast aluminum grill doubles as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and maximize driver performance. Along with XLR and ¼-in connectors, the CVA subwoofers have Master/Slave output connectors that allow for multiple CVA subwoofers to be daisy-chained together using a single signal. The subwoofers also feature a 35 mm pole-mount socket to accommodate a satellite speaker for full range performance and the CVA-121 includes removable steel casters for portability. Both subwoofer enclosures are constructed of 18 mm hardwood and finished with the option of a durable Coolex polyurethane paint or high-grade black carpet finish.
Cerwin Vega is the first loudspeaker company to successfully design a 1200 watt, 21-inch active subwoofer. The CVA-121 features Cerwin Vega’s Stroker technology, which utilizes a three spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. The built-in 1200 watt, high-efficiency Class H amplifier delivers 2400 watt peak. In addition, the CVA-121 includes an onboard parametric equalizer that allows for added adjustment of the gain, frequency and Q for customized performance options. The subwoofer is housed in a cabinet the size of a traditional 18-inch subwoofer, and includes a striking cast aluminum grille design.The CVA-121 also features convenient stereo crossover outputs and weighs in at 180 lb (81 kg).
The CVA-118 boasts a high-performance 18-inch Cerwin Vega woofer. Like its 21-inch big brother, the CVA-118 features built-in amplification for an integrated, all-in-one solution but with 700 watt (1400 watt peak) of high performance output. The overall size of the subwoofer is also minimal, housed in an enclosure the size of a standard 15-inch subwoofer.
Richard Ngo-Tran, Cerwin Vega’s Product Marketing Manager, commented on the company’s new line of active subwoofers, “We’ve built a 50 year legacy on mastering the art of bass and continue that heritage today with the CVA subwoofer line. An active subwoofer series that demonstrates a level of innovation, uniqueness, and value is true to the Cerwin-Vega corporate culture.”
