HOLLYWOOD, FL — January 16th, 2007 — Cerwin Vega!, a leading manufacturer of loud speakers and audio products, proudly announces the introduction of the new CV Series power amplifiers at NAMM. Available in three models—the CV-900, CV-1800, and CV-2800 — these rugged, 2U rackmountable, workhorses feature state-of-the-art designs that include a highly efficient tunnel cooling system to ensure reliable, cool running operation, 21-position detent level control knobs for easily repeatable settings, signal and clip indicators for convenient monitoring of the amplifier’s status, and the right connectors for integration into most any environment.
Cerwin Vega’s new CV Series power amps have the muscle to accommodate the most demanding audio challenge. With power ratings up to 2800 watts, support for bridged mono operation in all three models, and exceptional THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and Signal-to-Noise ratings, the CV Series power amps are the right choice for a myriad of musical tasks.
Sporting a hi-tech appearance that will be right at home in any equipment rack, the new Cerwin Vega! power amplifiers present a clean, inviting presence. The amplifier’s front panel includes a Power On/Off switch, 21-position detent level control knobs for channels 1 and 2 that make repeatable settings a breeze, and 6-segment, multi-color LED ladders for visual monitoring of signal status per channel.
At the heart of these new amplifiers resides an electronic design that delivers clean, reliable performance, protection circuitry guards against thermal overloads, short circuits, DC voltage, subsonic frequencies, and current overdriving. Additionally, these amps provide independent limiters for speaker protection, along with high-pass filters to eliminate extreme low end which can damage small speaker systems. Combined with a highly efficient, continuously variable tunnel cooling system designed to maintain low operating temperatures under extreme load conditions, the new CV Series power amps provide pristine audio quality and dependable performance.
With the right combination of input and output connectors, the new CV Series power amps integrate easily into most any audio environment. Rear panel input provisions include the balanced Combo (combined XLR and 1/4″ TRS) connectors, while outputs are handled by 5-way binding post and Speakon® connectors. Further, the rear panel is home to the High Pass Filter switch, Limiter switch, and a Mode select switch (for bridged/parallel/stereo operation).
