Product Description

The Cerwin-Vega CXA-Series high performance stereo and bridgeable power amplifiers are for those that want to sound like a pro! These home-use versions of the renowned Cerwin-Vega Professional series amplifiers. This amp offers similar capabilities, but are designed with input/output connections and a form factor that is suited for performing at home versus on stage.

These workhorses have the muscle to accommodate the most demanding audio challenges. With power ratings of up to 1800 watts, exceptional THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and Signal-to-Noise ratings, the CV Series power amps are the right choice for a wide range of music and home theater applications.

To ensure reliable operation the CXA amps include a highly efficient variable speed tunnel cooling system that dynamically follows amplifier output levels. When unneeded, the fans shut down entirely thereby reducing ambient noise. The 21-position detent level control knobs help you set and maintain volume settings. Signal and clip indicators provide a convenient way to monitor the amplifier's status. Proven professionally -- the CXA-Series Amps are right for the job - even when the "job" is entertaining friends and family.

Features:

- Power ratings up to 1800-watts run in stereo or bridged
- Professional quality design and reliability
- Flow-through cooling design prevents overheating
- Defeatable limiter and high pass filter per channel
- Detented 21-position input level control knobs
- Front panel LED indication of power, clip protect and signal status zZounds is an authorized dealer of Cerwin-Vega products.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
