Overview

The CVA-118 subwoofer is a high-performance, compact 18" active sub with 700W of efficient power output. The legendary Cerwin-Vega woofer design is reflected in this 18" woofer offering maximum bass performance with extreme power handling and exceptional low-frequency response. The CVA-118 speaker features built-in amplification for an integrated, all-in-one solution. A unique and striking cast aluminum grille protects the woofer while doubling as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and optimizing driver performance. Housed in a compact hardwood enclosure design the size of a standard 15" subwoofer footprint, the CVA-118 is highly portable and durable. Along with XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors, the CVA-118 has Master/Slave output connectors that allow for multiple CVA subwoofers to be daisy-chained together using a single signal. This compact active sub also features a 35 mm pole-mount socket to accommodate a satellite speaker for full range performance.

It's all you need!

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-118 18" Active Subwoofer:

Get a dolly, someone else, a crane -- just kidding about the crane but this thing is heavy and a monster when it comes to sound. If you have heart problems I strongly suggest for anyone with that condition NOT to stand 10/14 feet in front of this thing because you're gonna feel it. Amp runs cool after 3 hours of moderately high volumes and the sound has very articulate bass not boomy. I have two (2) CVA 28 tops with this sub and I tell you this is all you need.

More than expected!

By Joseph Kegel

from Athens, Georgia

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-118 18" Active Subwoofer:

One thing to note about this speaker right off the bat is that it is HEAVY. Either find a friend to help you, or find a dolly/hand-truck, because this thing is a back breaker, and for good reason! Sitting in front of this thing on full blast blows your shirt around, blurs your vision, and provides a nice back massage. Its simple, its versatile, it looks great (and a bit intimidating), and it. is. LOUD. To play music through at your house or at a low key party where people still wanna talk over the music, you only need to nudge on the volume of this beast to fill the room with very nice, smooth low end. The thump also carries a surprising distance. About 75 feet away from the speaker (I was outside, it was playing music inside) and the bass could still be felt! Buy this sub.

Old school still hits hard

By Robert Manis

from Jacksonville Florida

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-118 18" Active Subwoofer:

First i am a mobile dj and have several reviews on GC.com. Yes agreed a bit heavy but its solid construction with no grill rattle like a few others i heard in store. My gc does not stock this item so i realied on reviews and past cerwin vegas i have owned. This weekend i played a gig in which my brother a production company sound guy and a friend that is in bands and djs as well were both very impressed with this sub as i was too. I had one 18 for 100 people and was just right on dubstep lows and rock drum hits to hip hop thumps and club beats. Sounded perfect tight low high it played it all. I WILL buy another soon for larger gigs. Others i listened to were all jbl 18's under $1200 All mackie 18's (grill Rattlers) and qsc 18 which was the same sound but twice the price adn b52 which was not bad but sound was a little ruff here and there some may call it muddy sounding. Overall 5 stars perfect sub best price im very happy.

The BASS BEAST

By Kevin Santiago

from Homestead, FL.

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-118 18" Active Subwoofer:

This sub has continuosly performed with out flaw. Impressive bass from a compact box, without having to exceed the limits of the unit. More than enough power when set at just under half the gain power, for any venue. Definitly impressive and would recommend to anyone looking for good quality bass and good customer support from a manufacturer.

Big Bad Vega!

By SammyDplus

from Bowie, MD

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-118 18" Active Subwoofer:

I think the power rating of 750 watts is just a plain lie! - This MONSTER blows any other powered sub of similar category and price out of the water! - Much more powerful than two Ksubs (2,000 watts power rating) put together.. you need to hear it to believe it! ..it's a bit heavy though, but hey.. its a cerwin vega!
