Cerwin Vega! Announces the First 21 -inch Active Subwoofer on the Market Using Stroker Technology

New line of active subwoofers launched at Musik Messe to include 21-inch and 18-inch

Hollywood, Fla. - (March 29, 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.
