Cerwin-Vega CVi Passive Portable PA Speakers

FOH Staff • New Gear • January 20, 2011

Cerwin Vega's CVi Passive Portable PA speaker Series promise accurate and clear performance coupled with high-quality low frequency response. Pictured here is the CVi-152 full-range speaker.
Housed in a double braced wood cabinet with an 18 gauge steel grill, the series includes two subwoofers (CVi-118S / CVi-218S) with peak power capacities of 1200 and 2400 watts respectively, offering low frequency impact with tighter bass definition and less distortion.


The CVi-218S features a new stacked driver contra-sub. This Inverse Synergy sub configuration allows the two drivers to work together in the same enclosure volume producing bass response that exceeds the output of the collective drivers.  The result is cleaner, smoother low frequency reinforcement at higher SPL levels.


The CVi line also offers two full range speakers (CVi-152 / CVi-252), a 15" and dual 15", with peak power capacities of 1000 and 2000 watts respectively. The fifth and final speaker of the line is a 2-way stage monitor with a peak power capacity of 1000 watts (the CVi-122M).


The CVi series use 34mm Mylar compression drivers and hemi-conical horns that allow for smooth and accurate high frequency response, both on and off axis. The advanced crossovers utilized in the design reproduce accurate cross-band summation, resulting in a far more natural sound field.


In terms of setup, flexibility is an important feature of the CVi series. With a high current capacity and dual Speakon and ¼ inch input/output options, the CVi series offers many connectivity paths including the ability to connect multiple units in serial. Mix and match from the five different models of this speaker series to achieve the ultimate PA solution.
