High-performance speaker system extends Cerwin-Vega Line, Legacy
Hollywood, Fla. – (January 17, 2009) – Cerwin-Vega! a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and audio products for professional and home markets, today announced the Cerwin-Vega Passive (CVP) loudspeakers. The new speakers build on Cerwin-Vega’s legacy for providing outstanding bass and reliability, while delivering high output and sonic clarity for the gigging or touring musician. The CVP-1152 features a single 15” woofer and horn tweeter and the CVP-2153 has two 15” woofers with a horn tweeter. Both products are available now at Cerwin-Vega authorized dealers worldwide.
The CVP speakers were designed to be used as a performer’s primary speaker or in conjunction with one of Cerwin-Vega’s legendary folded horn or direct-firing subwoofers. Custom 15” cast frame woofers with 3” voice coils power the CVP designs’ low end, while high frequencies are handled by the 44mm mylar driver. The custom high-frequency horn can be rotated to optimize dispersion when the speakers are in floor monitor positions. The highpower handling of the speakers (1000w peak for the CVP-1152 and 2000W peak for the CVP-2153) ensure compatibility with Cerwin-Vega folded horns, including the newly announced 21” TS-42 subwoofer.
According to Tony Rodrigues, Cerwin-Vega’s Vice-President of Marketing, “Cerwin-Vega speakers are renowned for delivering monstrous bass. The new CVP loudspeakers handle high power, deliver amazing sound and have Cerwin-Vega’s trademark bass performance. They match the looks and performance of our subwoofers, which allows us to offer our customers a complete range of live and installed sound solutions.” Both products also feature bi-amplified modes for use with external crossovers, fast-reacting speaker protection circuitry and twelve fly-points for permanent installation applications. The CVP-1152 also has pole mounts and a floor-monitor wedge position.
