ActiveSeries
Meet the family
For more than 50 years, Cerwin-Vega! has set the standard
for high performance professional sound reinforcement.
Cerwin-Vega does it again with the introduction of the
Active Series. Simply put, if you make your living as DJ,
performing artist, or production company, this series is
for you. If you are tired of compromising performance,
particularly great bass output for portability, Cerwin-Vega
Active is what you’ve been waiting for.
Cerwin-Vega Active is a system approach to live sound, building on
Cerwin-Vega’s proud legacy as the dominant force in low-frequency sound
reproduction. By combining, and precisely matching speaker, enclosure
and amplification technology into one package, Cerwin-Vega engineers
have maximized the overall acoustic performance of each speaker, while
eliminating the, set-up complexities that usually come from such high
performance components.
The Players
The CVA-28 is a 3 way active speaker system
that provides powerful sound in a small,
modular package.
The CVA-118 and CVA-121 subwoofers match
perfectly with the CVA-28. The custom-designed
drivers in the 18” and 21” beasts use legendary
Cerwin-Vega! technology for maximum cone
excursion and voice-coil efficiency.
Because of our heritage in bass performance,
the series is built on a foundation that includes
two available active subwoofers, including a
massive 21 inch unit. Regardless of application,
you’ll know the venue will be covered in deep,
clean, thunderous bass. The Cerwin-Vega
Active Series doesn’t stop there. Understanding
that overall coverage and upper frequency
accuracy are as important as the reproduction
of tremendous bass, the active subwoofers are
paired to an accurate, active dual 8-inch full
range speaker. The perfect partner to the active
subs, the dual 8-inch 3-way provides mid-range
and upper end definition typically reserved for
studio monitors.
If acoustic performance and portability weren’t
enough, one of the important aspects of the
Active Series is upgradeability. Start off small
and build as you go. The Cerwin-Vega Active
Series provides a building block approach that
grows as your needs do. Also the system design
means you only have to take the components
you need for each job. Upgradeability is further
enhanced with a complete array of speaker
mount accessories. These bring all the acoustic
components together with the convenience and
flexibility you want during your next performance.
Piqued your interest? Good!
On the next pages we’ll take a
closer look at the players and
how each can be configured
for maximum performance in
applications like yours.
Go Big or Go Home
Show us somebody who doesn’t appreciate solid, powerful
bottom end, and we’ll show you a person with no soul.
Nobody knows more about the reproduction of clean, venue
shaking bass than Cerwin-Vega. We practically invented it!
No wonder we built the Cerwin-Vega Active Series on a solid
bass reproduction platform. Two Subwoofers are available to
meet your application and budget needs; the CVA-118 and
the flagship CVA-121 active subwoofer, with a massive 21-inch
woofer and integrated 1200-watt power amplifier.

The CVA-121 system offers tremendous power output
and exceptional low frequency response. The CVA-121
represents an industry milestone, as it is the first 1200-watt,
21-inch active subwoofer. A key engineering challenge in
the development of the CVA-121 was to maintain woofer
control from a system able to deliver such extreme
excursions and high SPL. The answer? Cerwin-Vega’s
innovative Stroker® Technology, which utilizes a threespider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice
coil efficiency. Stroker® provides a pair of double inverted
spiders to control linearity and maintain smooth excursion.
While a third spider provides another plane of support
for speaker movement. The third spider also keeps the
surround from pulling the cone unevenly, dramatically
improving voice coil and magnetic gap alignment at the
system’s extreme output. Cerwin-Vega engineers even
utilized a unique and striking cast aluminum grille that
doubles as a speaker heat sink, enabling these woofers to
play longer and harder than anything else in their class.

Matched to this woofer is a powerful, built-in 1200-watt
(2400 watt peak), high-efficiency Class-H amplifier. The
CVA-121 amplifier includes a unique onboard parametric
equalizer that allows for added adjustment of gain,
frequency and Q for customized performance options.
This allows users to dial in the correct sub response
for each venue. Users can bump frequencies that need
more emphasis or cut offending frequencies that occur
from room corner loading or wall boundary conditions.
Integrating all these technologies allows the CVA-121 to
deliver best in class low frequency output from a 21-inch
speaker, but has a footprint more like an 18-inch box. The
result of all this integration is power, upgradeability and
improved portability.
Unleashing all this power has never been easier thanks
to a complete array of connection and mounting options.
First, XLR and quarter inch connectors allow for balanced
and unbalanced operation, and flexible setup while using
a wide variety of cables and configurations.
While Master/Slave output connectors allow users to
daisy-chain multiple CVA subwoofers. Finally, three
top-mount 35 mm pole sockets and matched mounting
accessories, provide for flexible full range system
configurations.
Protecting your investment is solid 18-mm hardwood
construction, available in either durable Coolex®
polyurethane paint or high grade Carpet finish. Bottom
line; the CVA-121 Active Subwoofer will provide you
exceptional performance in a package much smaller and
easier to use than you have ever seen before.
Get the power.
The CVA-118 shares many of the features and benefits
found in its bigger 21-inch brother, but with an even
more compact enclosure. This active subwoofer is built
around a custom designed 18-inch Cerwin-Vega woofer
with extreme power handling and output. To maximize
the woofer’s output, the CVA-118 system includes a
matched and integrated 700-watt amplifier. This active
design approach not only maximizes performance, but
delivers improved portability. Users get the output of an
18” woofer from an enclosure normally associated with a
smaller 15-inch subwoofer.
Of course, flexible input connections, daisy-chain
capability, and mounting accessories makes the CVA-118
the perfect first choice when building an easy to use,
flexible and powerful bottom end foundation.
While impressive on its own, the Cerwin-Vega Active Series
subwoofers are complemented by the CVA-28. Like its
subwoofer partners, the CVA-28 is a totally integrated,
matched, and optimized active speaker system that
provides powerful sound in a small, modular package.
The system configuration starts with an innovative, 3 way,
dual 8” design. The dual 8 configuration was chosen for
optimized directivity and to provide high performance
in a small package. The custom designed Cerwin-Vega
drivers also provide superior power handling, tight bass
and refined mid-range. Finally, a compression driver is
placed in the center of the top woofer in a concentric
configuration. This design provides time-aligned high
frequencies for incredible detail and imaging.
Matched to this impressive transducer array is a 400
watt integrated 3-way amplifier. With 800 watts peak
output, the amplifier circuitry also boasts several helpful
user features. Start with a dedicated EQ contour switch
optimized for high SPL situations. This feature greatly
enhances speaker sound quality by reducing unwanted
frequencies at high SPLs. This equalization control is the
result of testing in real world environments with industry
experts. A Sub/No Sub switch allows users to roll off
the low end when used with a dedicated subwoofer,
eliminating competing frequencies in the system.
Access to the amplification section is available through
microphone, line, and instrument inputs through XLR and
quarter inch connectors. These flexible input choices let
you choose how you use the system: PA, satellite speaker,
or instrument source. System status is communicated
by a series of four LEDs that provide direct feedback on
important information such as signal and power.
As with other members of the Cerwin-Vega Active
Series, the CVA-28 provides superior flexibility and
upgradeability. The CVA-28 can be mounted or installed
in a myriad of ways thanks to integrated fly points, fly
kits, pole mounts, and dual and triple speaker mount
accessories. Cerwin-Vega hardware accessories let users
create a mini flyable array, or create an expandable system
with Cerwin-Vega subwoofers, allowing the CVA-28 to
cover venues from intimate to large. The available speaker
mounting systems allows up to three CVA-28 speakers to
be horizontally arrayed. And there is no need to guess on
how to angle the CVA-28s on top of a CVA subwoofer, since
the dual and triple speaker mount accessories provide
guide pins for optimized array angles, guaranteeing best
SPL and overall performance from your CVA-28 array.
With or without its CVA subwoofer partners, the CVA-28
is just the best sounding active full range speaker in its
class. Whether it’s hip hop, jazz, bluegrass or rock and
roll, the CVA-28 provides the performance, power and
flexibility you just can’t find elsewhere. If you’re looking for
an upgradeable and accurately voiced speaker as part of
your performance arsenal, the CVA-28 is the way to go.
You got gigs, we got your gear

PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The Cerwin-Vega! P-Series is a line of powerful, portable speaker systems with leg­endary Cerwin-Vega! performance. The P-Series combines rugged construction, extreme clarity and unmatched bass performance in an easy to use and versatile package. The P-Series family
includes three active speaker products: the P1000X and P1500X full-range speakers and the P1800SX subwoofer. All are suited for any
sound reinforcement application, from live performances to DJ gigs, as well as public speaking engagements.
The P1000X and P1500X are two-way, bi-amped, full-range bass-reflex speakers. The P1000X employs a 10-inch woofer, while the
P1500X utilizes a 15” woofer. The systems both employ a high-frequency compression driver and are powered by a custom Class-D
amplifier with a power rating of 1500 watts. A proprietary hemi-conical horn provides premium sound clarity over an even and wide coverage area. A built-in mixer with conve­nient 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 application. Both the P1000X and the P1500X are a versatile
products that can be used as a single speaker for a small venue, set in pairs for a larger venue needing more coverage and SPL, or as a
floor monitor for a band.
To add value and versatility for traveling bands or permanent installs, both the P1000X and P1500X enclosures are built of a lightweight, robust
polymer featuring integrated ribs for durability and resonant free performance. The professional enclosure includes a unique multi-angle pole
cup, comfortable ergonomic handles and built-in rigging points for suspended installations.
The P1800SX complements the P-Series with low frequency extension. The powered subwoofer employs
an 18-inch woofer with a custom 2000 watt Class-D amplifier. The large woofer and matched amplifier are
enclosed in a multi-ply hardwood cabinet, the combination which provides a superior punch and extreme
low- frequency response, which are both Cerwin-Vega! trademarks. Like the P1000X and the P1500X,
the P1800SX has frequency- shaping controls and the unrivaled VEGA BASS boost. This ensures the
user can dial in the correct amount of bass for each venue. While designed for use with the P1000X and
the P1500X, the P1800SX can also be used for low frequency extension with other Cerwin-Vega! tops or
even other brands. Additionally, the THRU, MIX and LINK outputs allow for system expandability and fast
daisy-chaining between components.
