Anaheim, CA (January 17, 2007)–Cerwin Vega! is debuting its new CV Series power amplifiers at NAMM this week. The CV-900, CV-1800, and CV-2800 are 2U rackmountable amps that feature tunnel cooling systems, 21-position detent level control knobs for repeatable settings, signal and clip indicators for monitoring of the amplifier’s status, and the connectors for integration into many environments.
The CV Series power amps have power ratings up to 2800 watts, support for bridged mono operation in all three models, and, according to the company, “exceptional” THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and Signal-to-Noise ratings. The amplifier’s front panel includes a Power On/Off switch, 21-position detent level control knobs for channels 1 and 2, and 6-segment, multi-color LED ladders for visual monitoring of signal status per channel.
The CV Series power amps’ rear panel input provisions include 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).
Rick Richardson, Cerwin Vega’s Marketing Manager, commented on the company’s new power amplifier offerings, “True to Cerwin Vega’s legacy, these amplifiers are designed to drive loudspeakers to their maximum capabilities. By offering Cerwin Vega! customers three options in the CV Series, we are meeting the needs of anyone in need of high quality power amplification.”
