Our take on the Cerwin-Vega CVi-152

by Jon Paulette
Cerwin-Vega

How do I find the right amp for a PA speaker?

PA systems work like any other audio system: send as much power as the speaker can handle, and you'll get the best possible sound quality at all dynamic levels. More power yields deeper, richer, and more satisfying sound -- even at low volumes. It's actually easier to damage speaker components with distortion from cranked-up low power than it is from clean high power. For PA equipment specifically, you can safely use an amplifier whose continuous power output is rated up to double the rated program power capacity of the speaker.

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. These speakers are built to last, so you can expand your system over time, as your needs change.

Ready to hit the road

 Cerwin-Vega's CVi-152M is a portable, full-range speaker designed for life on the road. A powerful, cast-frame 15" woofer 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. With 500 watts of power handling (1000 peak), this speaker will do a great job in a wide variety of venues with almost any musical style. Dual Neutrik Speakon® and 1/4" jacks make it easy to expand your Cerwin-Vega system.

Sharp-looking and sturdy

The CVi-152M looks great, with its 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 down the hall to another room without hurting it. Sturdy steel grilles protect the woofer during transport, while big, easy-to-grab steel handles make it easier to move. The built-in pole sockets allow you to mount these speakers on stands or poles.

    Features

The CVi-152 features a high power, cast frame, 15" 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-152 employs a vented cabinet with front-firing slot ports which adds to the loudspeaker'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-152 is fitted with dual 1/4" phone jacks and Neutrik Speakon connectors for high current capacity and daisy-chaining.
