You want your music to touch everyone in the room, even the latecomers in the back row. With Cerwin-Vega's CV Series power amplifiers fueling your speakers, you can be sure that everybody will hear music that's not just muscular and loud, but easy on the ears. Rugged construction and proven circuitry mean you can count on these amps to perform reliably on the road or in permanent installations.
The rear of the CV-2800 power amplifier offers XLR and 1/4" inputs, plus Speakon and 5-way binding post outputs.
Cerwin-Vega's CV-2800 amplifier delivers 600 watts RMS per channel at 8 ohms, 900 watts per channel at 4 ohms, and up to 2800 watts in bridged mode. The amplifier features a highly efficient flow-through tunnel cooling design which incorporates two fans to keep the power supply stable and ward off thermal breakdown. The defeatable limiter and high-pass filter on each channel help you get the most out of your speakers.
You'll find the usual array of indicators up front, including LEDs for power, clip, protect, and signal status, plus 21-position control knobs that'll let you set your levels with repeated reliability. This amp's a natural fit for Cerwin-Vega's passive loudspeakers, but it'll sound great through any other properly matched speakers.
The Cerwin-Vega CV-2800 amp offers balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs, as well as 5-way binding posts and Neutrik Speakon® outputs for the speakers. Got a passel of speakers in need of some juice? You can rackmount this amp, so you can have multiple amps join forces to rock your club or house of worship.

Two-Channel Power Amp: The Cerwin-Vega CV-2800 Power Amp is rated at 600W x 2ch at 8ohm, 900W x 2ch in 4ohm, and 1400W x 2ch in 2ohm. The power amplifier can also be bridged for a rating of 1800W x 1ch in 8ohm or 2800W x 1ch in 4ohm. The two-channel power amp provides Stereo, Parallel, or Bridged Mono operating modes for flexible application.
Combo Input Connectors: Connect your input source to the amplifier's balanced combo connectors using either XLR or 1/4" TRS plugs. They are configured as follows; Pin 2 (Tip) hot, Pin 3 (Ring) cold, and Pin 1 (Sleeve) ground. We recommend using balanced three-conductor cabling wherever possible. Unbalanced two-conductor 1/4" plugs can also be inserted into these inputs, but you will get better signal quality and less noise and hum if you use balanced lines. Stereo signal should be connected to the Channel 1 and Channel 2 input jacks. When operating the unit in Bridged Mono or Parallel modes, use the Channel 1 input jack only.
Binding Post and Speakon Outputs: Binding posts are provided for each channel, as well as Speakon connectors so that paralleling of speakers is possible.
Link Connectors: These XLR jacks (one for each channel) are used to send a parallel signal to another device or amplifier.
Controls: The CV-Series power amp offers a variety of controls to fit your application.
Protection Circuitry: The CV-Series power amp incorporates the following protection features to protect the amplifier and your speakers from damage or failure.
LED Indicators: Front panel LEDs indicate power, clip, protect, and signal status.
Flow-Through Cooling: The CV-Series power amplifier is cooled by two rear-mounted fans. Cool air flows through the front fan filters, reducing the temperature of internal components while forcing the heat out the rear vents. Never block these vents and keep them clear at all time.
Rack Mountable: The CV-Series power amplifier can be mounted in any standard 19" rack thanks to its integrated rack mount ears.
