Play Any Gig with These Super-Versatile Powered PA Speakers!
Rock any style of music on Cerwin-Vega's powerful, powered CVA-28 speakers. Versatile and easy to install, the 2x8-inch, 800-Watt CVA-28 provides the kind of power handling, amplification, and frequency response you need for blasting hip-hop, jazz, pop, rock, and more. Push any sonic material through the three-way speaker and enjoy tight bass and rich mid-range reproduction.
Three Transducers in a Space-Saving Configuration
The CVA-28's three-way, dual 8-inch design is the selling feature of the system, as it allows the speaker to deliver superior directionality and a clean off-axis response, along with awesome power handling, tight bass, and rich mid-range reproduction. Impressive imaging comes by way of a compression driver placed in the middle of the top woofer in a concentric configuration. That means these speakers deliver much bigger sound than you might expect for their size.
Advanced Power Handling
Built-in amplification means the loudspeaker supplies its own power, eliminating the need for an external amp. The Cerwin-Vega CVA-28 boasts a 400-Watt, integrated 3-way amplifier able to output 800 Watts peak and up to 128 dB SPL, with an EQ contour switch for high-SPL applications. Avoid competing system frequencies by flipping the speaker's Sub/NoSub switch, which lets you roll off the low end when used with a dedicated subwoofer.
Place the CVA-28 wherever you need great sound. Integrated fly points, flyware kits, and a pole mount, plus dual and triple speaker mount accessories provide easy options for installing and mounting the active full-range speaker alone or with other Cerwin-Vega ActiveSeries units.
On the rear of the speaker, you get microphone, line, and instrument inputs through balanced XLR and 1/4-inch connectors. Housed in a rugged hardwood enclosure, the CVA-28 is primed and ready for gigging, touring, you name it.
