The Cerwin Vega CVA-28 is a totally integrated, matched, and optimized active speaker system that provides powerful sound in a small, modular package. The system configuration starts with an innovative, 3-way, dual 8" design. The dual 8" configuration was chosen for optimized directivity and extremely clean, off-axis response. The custom-designed Cerwin-Vega drivers also provide superior power handling, tight bass and refined mid-range. Finally, a compression driver is placed in the center of the top woofer in a concentric configuration. This design provides time-aligned high frequencies for incredible detail and imaging.

Matched to the impressive transducer array of the CVA-28 speaker is a 400-watt integrated 3-way amplifier. With 800 watts peak output, the amplifier includes a dedicated EQ contour switch optimized for high SPL situations. A Sub/No Sub switch allows users to roll off the low end when used with a dedicated subwoofer, eliminating competing frequencies in the system. Connections include microphone, line, and instrument inputs through XLR and quarter-inch connectors.

The active speaker can be mounted or installed in a myriad of ways thanks to integrated fly points, flyware kits, pole mount, and dual- and triple-speaker mount accessories. With or without its ActiveSeries subwoofer partners, the CVA-28 is among the best sounding active full range speakers in its class. Whether it's hip-hop, jazz, bluegrass, or rock-and-roll, it provides the performance, power, and flexibility you just can't find elsewhere. If you're looking for an upgradeable and accurately voiced speaker as part of your performance arsenal, the CVA-28 is the way to go.

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-28 Active Dual 8" Speaker:

Picked up a set to reinforce a jazz combo doing smooth jazz and DJ duites is small to medium size rooms. Cerwin calls themselves the LOUD speaker company and they are right. These little joker really kick. Near field, low volme situations do not flatter thier sound, as they designed as long throw, and once the volume goes up just a little they really shine. While they are very LOUD they also are very balanced with plenty of bottom. Amazingly they have good coverage with much less directionalit than I would have expected. Combined with a CVA-118 they are more than enough to cover your average ballroom with danceable levels of music. They are far from lite and the finish is a bit brittle and flakes off the corners easily. Overall very immpressive. I even used them as a set personal floor monitors in a larger outdoor event with great success.

Gotten nothing but compliments

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-28 Active Dual 8" Speaker:

I purchased a pair a little less than a year ago and all I can say is these little speakers have been outstanding!! I do DJ and Karaoke shows and have gotten great reviews from my audience and singers. People come up to me every show and ask about them. The speakers are a bit heavy but worth it when you hear the pure quality of sound these speakers put out. I have had no problems with reliability. Overall I am very happy with them.

True sound.

By Emilio Mauge

from Palm Bay Florida

Comments about Cerwin-Vega CVA-28 Active Dual 8" Speaker:

I was blessed with 6 CVA 28 Active Speakers & 2 CVA 121 Active Speakers. Talk about sound. WOW! At first they looked to small when I saw them in a music store. I laughed and said this is junk. O no. I was wrong. Very wrong. When I heard them, The sound was nice but it was only set two 2. I then bought the full system. I did a small venue in my local city. I then set the 6 CVA 28 on max and the 2 CVA 121 on max. I shook the building and the building next to me. the glass windows almost fell out. Incredible sound. This sounds like a massive club sound system inside a venue and outside anywhere. Please do not be fooled like I was. Cerwin Vega is no joke! This small sound system can do any venue or party anywhere world wide. If you would like to here them. Book me for your event. And you will witness what true clear HI,mid base & sub base really sounds like. Loud clear and clean sound.
