Our take on the Cerwin-Vega CVi-122M

by Jon Paulette

Portable punch

Cerwin-Vega's CVi line of PA speakers gives you power and punch in a portable package. These road-ready speakers combine efficient drivers, high-tech crossovers and rugged, acoustically-sound enclosure design to give you plenty of volume and thump without distortion. They're also built to last, so you can expand your system over time, as your needs change.

Ready for the road

Cerwin-Vega designed this full-range CVi-122M stage monitor to handle life on the road. The powerful, cast-frame 12" speaker with its 2.5" voice coil handles the lows and mids, while a 1-1/4" tweeter in an 80° x 50° hemi-conical horn takes care of the highs. This rugged monitor handles up to 500 watts program (1000 watts peak), so you can count on hearing yourself clearly in just about any venue. The built-in pole socket allow you to mount this speaker on a stand or pole, so it'll double as a main speaker. Dual Neutrik Speakon® and 1/4" jacks make it easy to expand your Cerwin-Vega system.

Sharp-looking and sturdy

The CVi-122M looks great, with a carpeted exterior and distinctive cosmetics. But don't let the good looks fool you – this speaker is ready for life on the road. The cabinet is made from sturdy oriented strand board (OSB), so you can stuff it into a van or drag it across the stage without hurting it. Sturdy steel grilles protect the woofer during transport, while big, easy-to-grab steel handles make it easier to move.

    Two-Way Studio Monitor: The Cerwin-Vega CVi-122M is a portable, two-way full-range stage monitor designed for live music and playback applications. The CVi-122M features a high power, cast frame 12" woofer with a 2.5" voice coil to handle the low and low/midrange frequencies. A 1.3" PETP (polyethylene terephthalate) diaphragm compression driver is mounted to a 80° (h) x 50° (v) hemi conical horn for smooth, accurate on and off axis high frequency performance.

    Bass Reflex Enclosure: The CVi-122M employs a vented cabinet with front-firing slot ports which adds to the studio monitor's efficiency and bass output. The polypropylene-fiber covered internally braced structural wood housing is durable, light, and strong. An 18-gauge perforated steel grill protects the entire front of the enclosure.

    Steel Handles & Pole Mount: Built-in steel handles make it easier to maneuver the speaker. A pole mount sock is also featured for use with optional pole mount (sold separately).

    Dual Connectors: The Cerwin-Vega CVi-122m is fitted with dual 1/4" phone jacks and Neutrik Speakon connectors for high current capacity and daisy-chaining.

    Applications: The Cerwin-Vega CVi-122m is great for stage monitoring, portable live sound, auditoriums, DJ systems, clubs, and fill monitors.
