Push your low end to its limits with the Cerwin-Vega CVA-115, a mean 15-inch powered subwoofer with a whopping 700 Watts of continuous output and 1400 Watts of peak power. Ideal for small- to medium-sized venues, this 1x15" sub packs a powerful, controlled punch no matter how hard you push it, and it does so in a compact and stylish yet highly functional design. Thanks to its built-in amplification system and custom woofer, the CVA-115 active subwoofer offers exceptional low-frequency response.

All the I/O You Need

This high-performance sub features 2x XLR and 2x 1/4-inch TRS input connectors, and a completely variable low-pass filter for precise and accurate control of sub-bass frequencies. There's a Link Out XLR and 1/4" output and Master/Slave switch for daisy-chaining multiple CVA subwoofers, and dual XLR and 1/4" Thru outputs to feed your top boxes. For precise control across the frequency spectrum, the CVA-115 boasts a four-position high-pass filter that controls what frequency range is passed to your top speaker cabinets. Cut out frequencies below 65 Hz, 85 Hz, 130 Hz, or pass full-range signal. No matter what top cabinets you're using, you'll have total control over your sound.

Super Heavy-Duty Construction

At first glance, you can see that the CVA-115 means business. Built like a tank, the 1400-Watt, 1x15-inch active sub is made of solid hardwood sealed with durable Coolex polyurethane paint. On the front of the unit, the cast aluminum grille doubles as a heat sink to minimize power compression while optimizing driver performance.

Small-Scale Size, Huge Sound

Weighing 98 pounds each, the CVA-115 isn't exactly light. But despite its heavy-duty construction, it's still considered a portable sub because of its smaller than normal footprint: although the CVA-115 is a 15-incher, it could easily pass for a 12-inch subwoofer. Its compact size makes it simple to transport and set up.

Socket To Me

For a full-range performance, the powered subwoofer has a top-mounted 35 mm pole socket that accommodates a satellite speaker -- perfect for mounting Cerwin-Vega CVA-28 powered speakers as top boxes.

Features:

- Compact 1,400-Watt, 1x15" active subwoofer
- Custom 15" low frequency and full body bass response with a custom woofer for extreme power
- Built-in system amplification optimized for the specified woofer
- Master/Slave output allows for daisy-chaining multiple subs
- Top-mounted 35 mm pole socket accommodates a satellite speaker
- Constructed of hardwood with Coolex polyurethane paint
- Cast aluminum grille helps minimize power compression while optimizing driver performance
- Weight: 98 pounds

In this price range, you'll be hard-pressed to find another active subwoofer as powerful and slick as the CVA-115. Hear your music loud and clear with this affordable Cerwin-Vega sub!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (23 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great investment if you want to 'feel' the bass!"
Sound: I've rated the sound quality as a '9' only because I never rate anything 'the best'. But that said, this is the best subwoofer for the price that I have ever had the experience of using. I have two matched with RCF ART 722 speakers and the front of house sound is phenomenal at almost every sound level, but especially loud. The Cerwin-Vega's can really move a lot of air. You can 'feel' them and that is what I'm looking for in a subwoofer. The only improvement I can think of is a slight adjustment in the placement of the handles to make this unit easier for one person to carry. It is possible but it is heavy so best if you've got two people to move this, especially on stairs. I recommend this product.
