Cerwin-Vega!, part of Gibson Brands Inc., is pleased to unveil its new P1000X 10-inch Powered Loudspeaker, the latest addition to its critically-acclaimed P-Series Line, at Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound 2014 (Hall 5.1, Stand A82). A more compact version of the original P1500X Loudspeaker, the P1000X is suited for a variety of sound reinforcement applications, from live concerts to public speaking. The company is also featuring the newest additions to its popular XD Powered Desktop Speaker Series, which comprises the XD4 and XD5 Speakers and accompanying XD8s Subwoofer.
Featuring many of the same controls as its predecessor, the P1000X Powered Loudspeaker is a two-way, bi-amped, full-range bass-reflex speaker that employs a 10-inch woofer and high-frequency compression driver. Powered by a custom 1000W Class-D amp, the P1000X has a proprietary hemi-conical horn that provides enhanced sound clarity over an even and wide coverage area. A built-in mixer with multiple channels and I/O connections allows for simple and fast setup, while enhanced EQ, VEGA BASS boost and high-pass filter controls enable exact tuning and exceptional performance for any event.
The P1000X is a versatile product that can be used as a single speaker for a small venue, set in pairs for a larger venue needing more coverage and SPL, or side mounted as a floor monitor. Its lightweight, robust polymer enclosure includes a a self-tightening pole cup, as well as comfortable ergonomic handles. These features provide users with versatility, comfort and ease of setup. Built-in rigging points and a remote volume port make the P1000X ideal for suspended installation.
Extending the successful XD Desktop Powered Speaker Series are the new four-inch XD4 and five-inch XD5 desktop speakers and eight-inch XD8s powered subwoofer, which feature optimized frequency response, overall clarity, low distortion and the company’s trademark bass performance. Each XD Series member is matched with low distortion, high output amplifiers and soft-dome tweeters for the best possible sound.
Equipped with metal covers, the XD4 features a 3/4-inch tweeter while the XD5 utilizes a one-inch tweeter. Unlike other desktop speaker systems, the Cerwin-Vega! XD Series is built with solid MDF wood enclosures, allowing it to deliver the same sound quality as home speaker systems. All speakers in the series come equipped with Cerwin-Vega!’s signature Vega-Bass Boost Switch, which engages an enhanced bass EQ circuit.
The efficient XD8s offers an extended bass response, high SPL and an optimally designed port for proper low frequency phase alignment and minimal port turbulence. The XD8 ships with a Remote Control, which includes a subwoofer mute button and adjusts the overall system volume when using the accompanying XD Series speakers.
