Cerwin-Vega! Inc., a member of the Stanton Group of companies and a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of loudspeakers for the home and professional audio markets, is pleased to debut its CVi Passive Portable PA Speaker Series at the Stanton Hospitality Pavilion, located at Hall 4.C / Office 208 at Musikmesse 2011. Integrating 50 years of loudspeaker know-how with the latest advancements in technology, Cerwin-Vega raises the bar again with the extremely durable, professional grade CVi series. This new line of portable PA solutions delivers exactly what fans of Cerwin-Vega! have come to expect—accurate and clear performance coupled with outstanding low frequency response. Attendees are also invited to visit the Stanton Group at Hall 5.1 Stand D98.
Housed in a double-braced wood cabinet with an 18 gauge steel grill, the line is designed for endurance and mobility. The series includes two subwoofers (CVi-118S / CVi-218S) with peak power capacities of 1200 and 2400 watts, respectively. These efficient Cerwin-Vega! woofers deliver low-frequency impact with tighter bass definition and less distortion. The CVi-218S features an innovative stacked driver contra-sub. This Inverse Synergy sub configuration allows the two drivers to work together in the same enclosure volume, producing bass response that exceeds the output of the collective drivers. The result is cleaner, smoother low frequency reinforcement at higher SPL levels.
The CVi line also offers two full range speakers (CVi-152 / CVi-252), a 15” and dual 15”, with peak power capacities of 1000 and 2000 watts, respectively. The fifth and final speaker of the line, (CVi-122M), is a two-way stage monitor with a peak power capacity of 1000 watts (CVi-122M).
The entire CVi series boasts high performance 34mm Mylar compression drivers. In addition, the use of hemi-conical horns allows for smooth and accurate high frequency response, both on and off axis. The advanced crossovers utilized in the design reproduce accurate cross-band summation, resulting in a far more natural sound field.
In terms of setup, flexibility is an important feature of the CVi series. With a high current capacity and dual Speakon and quarter inch input/output options, the CVi series offers many connectivity paths including the ability to connect multiple units in serial. Customers can mix and match the five different models of this speaker series to achieve the ultimate PA solution.
