Reach 2400 Watts peak with the booming Cerwin-Vega CVA-121X powered subwoofer. This 1x21-inch baddie completes any serious PA system, giving bands and artists the low-frequency response and tremendous power they need to play loud. Really loud. What fuels the subwoofer's fire is Cerwin-Vega's Stroker technology, which maximizes power output and efficiency in one go. If you're in need of some low-end thunder to blast away your audience, turn to the CVA-121X.

Plenty of Thump for Your Powered PA

This active subwoofer sports a huge 21-inch woofer and a powerful Class H amplifier that's able to output 1200 Watts (continuous)/2400 Watts (peak). Cerwin-Vega's CVA-121X just begs to be pushed to its limits! The built-in amp features its own parametric equalizer -- a helpful addition that lets you tweak gain, frequency, and resonance (Q) to suit your performance venue. All in all, the powered sub delivers a terrific low-frequency power boost to any live set, with the user-friendly controls you need to take command of it.

Efficient to the Extreme

The CVA-121X is driven by Stroker technology, which uses a three-spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. More than just a pretty face, the sub's cast aluminum grille serves double duty as a speaker heat sink, so that the woofer can perform at its best for hours on end without overheating.

Quick System Setup

Easy to set up, the powered subwoofer offers a range of mounting and connection options, including both XLR and 1/4-inch connectors allow for balanced and unbalanced operation, and Master/Slave output connectors for daisy-chaining multiple CVA subwoofers. Three top-mount 35 mm pole sockets and matched mounting accessories further help you configure your sound system. Removable casters help you roll the 180-pound behemoth from place to place.

Features:

- Custom 21-inch woofer with Cerwin-Vega's Stroker technology, using a three-spider driver design
- Built-in system amplification optimized for the 21-inch woofer
- Master/Slave output lets you daisy-chain multiple subs, reducing cable connections
- Onboard parametric equalizer puts you in charge of performance output, with direct control of the gain, frequency, and Q (resonance)
- Cast aluminum grille protects the woofer and acts as a heat sink by reducing power compression
- Ruggedly constructed, solid 18 mm hardwood enclosure
- Removable casters for easy transport
- Three top-mount 35 mm pole sockets accommodate single or multiple CVA-28s using the CVA accessories

Product Description

The CVA-121 offers tremendous power output and exceptional low frequency response. The CVA-121 represents an industry milestone, as it is the first 1200-watt, 21-inch active subwoofer. At the heart of the CVA-121 is Cerwin-Vega's patented Stroker(tm)(r) Technology, which utilizes a three-spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. Even the unique and striking cast aluminum grille doubles as a speaker heat sink, enabling these woofers to play longer and harder than anything else in their class.

Matched to this woofer is a powerful, built-in 1200-watt (2400 watt peak) high-efficiency Class H amplifier. The CVA-121 amplifier includes a unique onboard parametric equalizer that allows for added adjustment of gain, frequency and Q for maximized control and output. Integrating all these technologies allows the CVA-121 to deliver best-in-class low-frequency output from a 21-inch speaker, but has a footprint more like an 18-inch box. The result of all this integration is power, upgradeability and improved portability.

The CVA-121 has a complete array of connection and mounting options. XLR and 1/4" connectors allow for balanced and unbalanced operation, accommodating a wide variety of cables and configurations. Master/Slave output connectors allow users to daisy-chain multiple CVA subwoofers for precise control from the master unit. Finally, three top-mount 35 mm pole socket and matched mounting accessories, provide for flexible full range system configurations.

Protecting your investment is solid 18-mm hardwood construction. Bottom line; the CVA-121 Active Subwoofer will provide you exceptional performance in a package that's small and easy to use.

Features:

- Custom 21-inch woofer with Cerwin-Vega's legendary Stroker technology, using a three-spider driver design
- Built-in system amplification optimized for the 21-inch woofer
- Master/Slave Output allows for daisy-chaining multiple subs reduces cable connections
- Onboard Parametric Equalizer allows control of performance output by control of the gain, frequency, and Q
- Cast aluminum grille protects the woofer and acts as a heat sink by reducing power compression
- Rugged hardwood enclosure and removable casters reliable from gig to gig
- Three top-mount industry standard 35mm pole sockets accommodate single or multiple CVA-28s using the CVA accessories
Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "cva 121 in action"
Overall: Since most reviews i read are either misleading or lack in details i decided to place a review on this sub that everyone can understand. I spent a lot of time researching powered subs for our needs...it was frustrating due to mixed reviews on practically every one of them...so in the end we basically did a hail marry and went with the original sub kings Cerwin Vega..we ware glad we did. The use for these subs for us is for both DJ and band use. We gave them a go last night for the first time and i have to say these are fantastic subs. They hit very hard, and got special attention from our female clientele ;). The gig was in an 80' x 80 building and was more than enough. We drove them about 50%sub gain...and 40%on the mixer... and it was all we could take. We are big Bassnectar fans and wanted extremely low and powerful bass ...and we got it in a powered package. It felt as though the building was going to fall apart bolt by bolt...brick by brick. We have been let down in the past in purchasing equipment by relying on reviews, our most recent mistake was investing in EV powered setup with subs......which proved to be less than impressive ....but the reviews about them had nothing but praise and hype. There is no hype when it comes to the cva121...it really delivers. I cant speak at this point about reliability, and the speaker itself is heavy as h....heavy....did i mention it was heavy. Plan on getting some cheap carts with big tires to make your life easier....the included caster wheels are nice but we wont be using them.. due to the speakers weight the caster wheels would hang up on every crack and crevice and make life hard not to mention all the rattling and jarring of the built in amp and all its sensitive contents . Even though the thing is heavy, it is very well made and most options you could ever want or need as far as control and input.
