Cerwin Vega! Anounces CVA-121 and CVA-118 Subs

Published Jun 19, 2007

Cerwin Vega!, a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and audio products, proudly announces the introduction of a new line of professional active subwoofers at Musik Messe. The Cerwin-Vega Active Series consists of two unique models, CVA-121 and CVA-118, featuring Cerwin Vega’s legendary 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.

From the company who pioneered bass and subwoofer technology, Cerwin Vega is the first loudspeaker company to successfully design a 1200 watt, 21-inch active subwoofer. The CVA-121 features Cerwin Vega’s innovative Stroker technology, which utilizes a three spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. The powerful built-in 1200 watt (2400 watt peak), high-efficiency Class H amplifier provides a highly-qualified amp solution. In addition, the CVA-121 includes a unique onboard parametric equalizer that allows for added adjustment of the gain, frequency and Q for customized performance options. To add to its unique design, the subwoofer is housed in a cabinet the size of a traditional 18-inch subwoofer, and includes a striking cast aluminum grille design.
