Cerwin-Vega AB-36CHollywood, CA (November 3, 2008)–Cerwin-Vega has introduced its C-Series of passive folded horn subwoofers. The new series reportedly provides performance improvements over previous folded horns and incorporates a new design. It is aimed at gigging musicians, nightclubs, live performance venues and sound companies.
Folded horns differ from traditional subwoofers in that they use a complex path within the speaker enclosure to create a horn that reinforces bass frequencies. This results in a speaker that is said to play larger and louder than the speaker’s driver.
The C-series features three new models: the AB-36C, EL-36C and the JE-36C, each featuring a custom-designed Cerwin-Vega 18-inch cast-frame speaker. With 6.5 feet of folded horn chamber length in the AB-36C and the EL-36C, and 5 feet of folded horn chamber length in the JE-36C, the C-Series provides enhanced SPL performance, die-cast-aluminum doors for heat dissipation, a curved horn mouth bracing for frequency response, and reinforced pole cups and handles for setup and transport.
Performance enhancements for the AB-36C include Stroker technology from the Cerwin-Vega mobile audio division. Low-frequency performance has been reportedly increased in the JE-36C due to a new cabinet design.
“We are extremely proud to announce that we have made the industry’s best folded horns even better,” states Michael Newman, brand manager for Cerwin-Vega. “True to Cerwin-Vega’s legacy, the entire C-Series line delivers extreme sound levels and thundering bass in a roadworthy package.”
