They Don't Get Any Bigger Than This!

The TS-42 is the loudest, deepest, and most powerful folded horn ever created by Cerwin-Vega! Its magnificent design and outstanding features makes it ideal for use in the most challenging scenarios where vigorous bass is needed, such as live sound, installations, large venues, mobile DJs, and club applications.

Featuring a gigantic 21” woofer with advanced Stroker™ technology and delivering 144 dB of maximum SPL (better than two 18” folded horn speakers); the TS-42 raises the low frequency performance bar to the next level.

The TS-42 Folded Horn delivers more bass per square inch than other subwoofer designs and includes a curved horn mouth bracing for smoother frequency response, a stunning cast aluminum C-Series door that acts as a functional heat sink, and extra deep pole cups for increased stability with full-range speakers.

  • The six magnet sections and the tunnels located between them, provide cooling below the top plate
  • Rugged new die cast door provides improved heat dissipation & displays Stroker™ metal badge
  • New curved horn mouth bracing for smoother frequency response
  • Steel front corner bracing to improve cabinet strength

can this subwoofer be used in a large outdoor concert i don't see any reviews on the ts 42 or even youtube demos on it i wish there was a better platform to showcase what this sub can do
Gil on May 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Its performance would fully depend on the size of the venue and other factors such as ambient noise present, etc. With 4000 Watts of peak power, it could perform admirably under the right conditions. Thanks for your questions!
how good is this subwoofer outdoors and does it throw long and hard? what power amp is best to drive it? am shopping for an out door system to cover a crowd of 10 000
Gil on Oct 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The TS-42 is a great sub but if you're going to be playing to 10,000+ people, you're going to need to invest in a line array speaker system rather than standard PA tops and subs.

There really is no way to get around it with that huge of a crowd.
Can i push this sub-woofer with a Crown XTI 4000?
javi on May 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: If you bridge mono at 8 ohms, then yes you can.
Why did you advise that this CV sub will give better low end that the JBL dual 18"? Is there some advantage to the folded horn design that is better that the bandpass box from JBL? In my experience the folded horn does crank loud and low bass but is slow and sloppy sounding. Bandpass boxes are tight and faster sound. Can you explain this in greater detail...
club owner on May 8, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Well each of the Bass Speaker does have its advantage. If you would like to talk more about these products please feel free to give us a call at 1800 268 5520
can you tell me what kind of amp i need for TS-42 21
null on Sep 8, 2010
BEST ANSWER: I recommend the Crown XTI-6000.
someone asked what you would recommend to push 2 of these & you answered crown XTI-6000, would that be hooked mono or straight
El Gato Montez on Aug 23, 2010
BEST ANSWER: The Crown XTI-6000 will have to be bridged mono @ 8 ohms will give you 4200 watts, @ 4 ohms will give you 6000 watts.
the subwoofer have tweeters?
indio on Jul 21, 2010
BEST ANSWER: The Cerwin Vega TS-42 21-In Stroker Subwoofer does not have tweeters. If you are looking for a Cerwin Vega with tweeters I recommend, Cerwin Vega CVP-2153 Dual 15-In 3-Way Speaker * (Item # 72479).
Can you give 2 or 3 best amplifier matches for this bass bin?

Also, how does this Folded horn bass bin compare to the Front loaded JBL SRX728S Subwoofer (2 x 18) thats rated at 1600 watts or similar double loaded front load 18"? Which would be better?

Trickster on Apr 4, 2010
BEST ANSWER: XTI-6000 Would be prefect for the Cerwin Vega TS-42 21-In Stroker Subwoofer. Cerwin vega will give you more bottom end
than JBL.
I wanna know if this sub is capable of providing bass outdoors?
