Cerwin Vega Announced CV-P Passive Speakers And TS-42 Sub

The Cerwin Vega CV-P Passive speakers and TS-42 subwoofer are not your Guitar Hero or Rock Band companion sound products, it's professionally designed loudspeakers for the real musicians on tour, concert or theatrical performance biz, the real deal with dynamic sonic, accurate tone reproduction and earthshaking rumbling bass professional audio gears.

Capable of soaking up 4000 watts of peak power and deliver deep bass frequency down to 27hz, the custom and cast-frame Cerwin-Vega TS-42 houses a staggeringly large 21-inch bass drive with an in-house Stroker technology, reinforced carbon fiber cone and folded horn design to extend sound travels and prolong speaker durability.

The CV-P speaker line-up, on the other hand, is passive designed full range loudspeaker with 15-inch bass driver and horn tweeter. The CVP-1152 has a direct-firing 15-inch cast frame subwoofer with 3-inch voice coils powers the bottom ranges, while top ranges are handled by a 44mm mylar driver. For extended bass, Vega offers a dual subwoofer design CVP-2153 for monstrous bass.

Serious audio professionals now can get their hands on the new Cerwin Vega, all three of them, at Cerwin-Vega authorized dealers worldwide.

Hollywood, FL – January 14, 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 while 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 high-power 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.

Hollywood, FL – January 14, 2009 – Cerwin-Vega! a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and audio products for professional and home markets, today announced the Cerwin-Vega TS-42 folded horn subwoofer. The TS-42 is the ultimate expression of the legendary Cerwin-Vega bone-jarring bass and earth-shaking sound. The subwoofer is aimed at sound companies, performing DJs, musicians, nightclubs and theaters that need to thrill their audiences with clear, powerful bass. The TS-42 is available now at Cerwin-Vega authorized dealers worldwide.

The TS-42 is based on Cerwin-Vega's decades of research and development into the perfection of folded horn designs. The folded horn design lengthens the path that the sound travels, which results in a massive amplification of sound. This allows the 21" speaker in the TS-42 to produce higher sound levels than standard front-loaded system, hence the "42" designation. The 21" speaker is a custom, cast-frame Cerwin-Vega design that utilizes Stroker™ technology. This technology allows the speaker to play longer by reinforcing the speaker's internal structure, optimizing cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. The speaker cone is reinforced with carbon fiber which increases reliability and power handling.

"The TS-42 builds on our legacy as the premiere live sound subwoofer company", says Tony Rodrigues, Cerwin-Vega's Vice-President of Marketing. "The sound from this folded horn is full, deep and smooth and its power handling makes it possible to use this single speaker in applications that may have required several in the past."

Cerwin-Vega speakers are renowned for delivering monstrous bass. The TS-42 is no exception, capable of handling a whopping 4000 watts of peak power and delivering frequencies as low as 27Hz. The TS-42 also features Cerwin-Vega's trademark "barbeque" grill that is not only stylish but also acts as a heat sink for the woofer, increasing reliability and allowing the speaker to play louder longer. The cabinets are designed to easily fit through standard-sized doors and ergonomic handles and integrated heavy-duty wheels make for easier loading.

The TS-42 features Speakon input connectors, internal reinforcements for added rigidity and alignment marks to assist when stacking the TS-42 with other Cerwin-Vega Passive speakers.
