15" 2-way PA speaker — 500W continuous
Our take on the Cerwin-Vega CVi-152 by Crutchfield's Jon Paulette
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 to satisfy the touring musician. 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.
