New York, NY (December 26, 2012)—Cerwin-Vega has introduced its new P-Series professional PA system, created specifically for sound reinforcement applications such as live performances and public speeches.
The P-Series family includes two active speaker products: the P1500X and the P1800SX. The P1500X, a two-way, bi-amped, full-range bass reflex speaker employs a 15-inch woofer and high-frequency compression driver, powered by a custom Class-D amp. A proprietary hemi-conical horn is said to provide enhanced sound clarity. A built-in mixer with I/O connections simplifies setup, while EQ, VEGA BASS boost and high-pass filters are also available.
The P1800SX is a powered subwoofer, employing an 18-inch woofer with a custom 2000W Class-D amp. The large woofer and amplifier are enclosed in a hardwood cabinet. Like the P1500X, the P1800SX has frequency-shaping controls, a Vega Bass boost and a high-pass filter switch (as a built-in crossover). This reportedly ensures that the user has the right amount of bass for a particular venue. While designed for use with the P1500X, the P1800SX can be used for bottom-end extension with competitive products. Additionally, the Thru and Mix output options allow for system expandability and daisy-chain connections between components.
