The new Cerwin-Vega! P1500X and P1800SX subwoofer

Cerwin-Vega! has introduced P-Series professional loudspeakers, which includes two active models: P1500X and P1800SX.

The P1500X is a 2-way, bi-amped, full-range bass-reflex loudspeaker employing a 15-inch woofer and high-frequency compression driver, powered by a custom Class-D amplifier with an output rating of 1500 watts.

A proprietary hemi-conical horn provides enhanced sound clarity over an even and wide coverage area. A built-in mixer with I/O connections allows for simple and fast setup, while enhanced EQ, VEGA BASS boost and high-pass filters enable exact tuning and exceptional performance for any event.

The P1500X has a lightweight polymer enclosure that includes a 2-position pole cup with an adjustable mounting point, as well as comfortable ergonomic handles. Built-in rigging points and remote volume port make the P1500X ideal for suspended installation.

The P1800SX is a powered subwoofer employing an 18-inch woofer with a custom 2000-watt Class-D amplifier. The large woofer and amplifier are enclosed in a hardwood cabinet to enhance bass “punch” and low end response.

Like the P1500X, the P1800SX has frequency-shaping controls, a VEGA BASS boost, and a high-pass filter switch (as a built-in crossover). This ensures that the user has the right amount of bass for a particular venue.

While designed for use with the P1500X, the P1800SX can be used for bottom-end extension with competitive products.

Additionally, the THRU and MIX output options allow for system expandability and fast daisy-chain connections between components.

Suggested list price for the P1500X is $1,199 USD, with the P1800SX priced at $1,499 USD.
