By PSW Staff • July 23, 2007 The new Cerwin-Vega CVA-121 and CVA-118 active subwoofers Cerwin Vega! has introduced a new line of professional Active Series subwoofers at Musikmesse. Comprised of models CVA-121 and CVA-118, they incorporate Cerwin Vega’s noted driver design and bass performance, incorporated in a small compact footprint, with built-in amplifiers providing a completely integrated active system. Functional cast aluminum grills double as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and maximize driver performance. Along with XLR and quarter-inch 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. The CVA-121 features Cerwin Vega’s Stroker technology, which utilizes a three spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. The powerful built-in 1,200 watt (2,400 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.
