can i use a crossover with powered speakers????
A shopper on Jan 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your question. The idea of a crossover and the idea of active (powered) speakers are not mutually exclusive. It would depend on what specific equipment you're attempting to put together. I recommend you give a call to our Gear Advisors, who are happy to discuss all available options. We're standing by at 800.268.5520! Thanks!
Hi - how would compare/contrast the CVA 118 with their P-1800 powered sub? Seems the P-1800 is essentially the same, but newer/updated/better?
The option to display the clip light in front of the cab maybe worth the extra $100 for the P-1800. We're considering installing a pair in a community amphitheater with roof, but warm weather performance is an issue - I see a fan on the 1800 has a built-in fan, but any other functions - like linking - better with the 1800? THANKS!
Mike on Jul 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The most notable difference between them would be that the P1800SX has a slightly higher peak wattage rating and decibel level.
What is the difference of a active sub & a powered sub.
Jimmy on Apr 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: An active sub and the powered sub are the same thing; they both have an internal amplifier to power it.

It's A Vega That should Speak for it's s
Pros: Easy To Connect,Great Sound Quality,Powerful,Attractive Design
Cons: A little on the heavey

Cerwin Vega Has been my choice Since 1978 Ive have tried EV,Yamaha JBL & Mackie nothing come close to a Vega Bass but B52's are close as for the weight you have to expect that but I still wish they were a little lighter Gator 2225-24 bag will help with transport and Keep them looking great Love the New grill

Power with Simplicity!!!
Pros: Great Sound Quality,Easy to Mount,Easy Setup,Good Power Output,Attractive Design
Cons: Heavy / Bulky

By far, the best speaker outside of EV & Bose. I love the EV line but the prices on the powered subs for EV were too high. I had always used Cerwin Vegas for bass in the past which provided that clean bass sound to any track playing. I wanted to upgrade my sound to something smaller and more stable. With Everyone at Pro Sound Stage & Lightings, I was able to make the smart decision and go with the Cerwin Vega without contemplating. I believe if you listen to the clarity, no other models compare to the CVA models. The JBL (you are buying the name brand), Mackie (Not Reliable and not enough kick), Bose (Too Expensive but amazing if I had the funds I would go with this system L1 Bose), Cerwin Vega (JUST PERFECT AT 700 WATTS) The only thing I wish it had was a set of Caster's so that I can move them around with ease. They are a bit heavy due to the sturdy cabinet but this would be an excellent feature if added later.
