  • Boom! Boom!

    As reviewed by scott bronson on 10/14/2011

    I purchased this amp in the begining of Oct. 2011 The reason being is I needed to get more power to my pair of Cerwin Vega Earthquakes. I was pumping 750 watts into each of them but they sorta sounded like you were slapping a paper bag instead of some good booming bass. I looked around for a while for a more powerfull amp(QSC,Crown,Peavey,ect....)But for the power I needed I just couldn't afford what they had to offer. I just happened to stumble across the CV 5000 amp and seen what this baby supposably puts out for power and the price and said wow! Now I can handle that! I went down to my local GC store and talked to my good buddy Greg. A sound technician who I've been dealing with and have trusted for a few years now. After he investigated this CV 5000 for a while he came to the conclusion that this unit would be as good if not better than the QSC 5050. Which is double the price of the CV 5000 I remind you. I've been using this amp just about every night since I got it. Running some of the lower end Keys, The Bass Guitar, and of course all the Drums. We can't even turn the sliders up on the board more than a quater of the way because the chest pounding thump is blowing you away! Don't let anyone in the club who might be wearing a pacemaker. When Cerwin Vega said that this amp was a perfect match for the Earthquakes, They weren't lying. For inside a medium size club this set up is perfect for the low end. I wish I had another set of the Earthquakes for some of the outdoor festivals that we do. If I did we wouldn't need any more power. This amp cranks. One thing I also noticed is that at the end of every show, before I shut the amp down, the fans are always blowing nice cool air out the front. This thing dosen't even get hot. I know I'm long winded but I'am so impressed by this amp that I would truly recommend it to anyone. A TON of CLEAN POWER for not a TON of money. I hope this review helps everyone looking to purchase the CV 5000! It is more than worth the money. Rock On

  • Great for sub woofer... for primary hifi amp... NO!!

    As reviewed by Les on 7/13/2014

    This amp has power to spare and produces very tight drum and bass response. If you want to play subs loud, tight, and clean... this has the muscle to do it. HOWEVER, do not try to use this amp as your main HiFi power amp. There is just no headroom around acoustic music. My Dalquist DQ-10s sounded like a blanket had been thrown over them in comparison to my old amp. Yes... side by side. The worst is the fans. At low volume (say you want to read a book in the same room) the fans will be louder than the tunes. I am not going to modify a brand new amp with quieter fans and invalidate the product warranty. Especially since the top end response is not good.
