Cerwin Vega! Announces 18″ & 21″ Active Subwoofers

Cerwin Vega! has announced the CVA-121 and CVA-118, a new line of professional active subwoofers. The new Cerwin-Vega Active Sub Series feature built-in amplifiers to provide a completely integrated system, and a functional cast aluminum grill doubles as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and maximize driver performance.


Along with XLR and 1⁄4″ 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.

CVA-121 Features:
• High-Performance 21″ Woofer with Stroker Technology
• Powerful Built-in 1200 watt Amplifier, 2400 watt Peak
• Solid 18-mm Hardwood Enclosure Construction
• Durable Coolex Polyurethane Paint Finish or Carpet Finish

The CVA-118 boasts a high-performance 18-inch Cerwin Vega woofer for extreme power handling and exceptional low-frequency response. Like its 21″ big brother, the CVA-118 features built-in amplification for an integrated, all-in-one solution but with 700 watt (1400 watt peak) of high performance output. The overall size of the subwoofer is also minimal, housed in an enclosure the size of a standard 15-inch subwoofer.

CVA-118 Features:

The recent Cerwin Vega! and KRK product announcements certainly help buoy the Stanton Group who as been taking a lot of heat lately in regards to their fallout with Native Instruments and their lackluster DJ lineup.
