1500 Watts of Clean, Powerful Sound -- To Go
Trust Cerwin-Vega to come up with a 1500-watt powered PA speaker that's this versatile. The Cerwin-Vega P1500X is an excellent PA speaker in a standalone or full-range setup, and also makes a killer onstage monitor with lots of power and definition. With its two XLR-1/4" inputs plus a stereo 1/4" input pair, a built-in mixer, on-board limiting, and Enhanced EQ and VEGA Bass Boost switches to tailor your sound to the venue, the P1500X is packed with features. And with its 1500 watts pushing a 15-inch woofer, this bad boy is ready to get good and loud.
Clean and Powerful Sound
The Cerwin-Vega P1500X loudspeaker pushes 1500 watts of dynamic power through a true bi-amp design. The low-frequency driver is a 15-inch woofer cone, while the high-frequency transducer measures 1.75 inches. The amplifier itself is Cerwin-Vega's proprietary Class D design that guarantees minimal heat gain, with completely pure and clean sound and no distortion -- even at the highest output levels.
Excellent Range and Response
This speaker has a frequency range of 49.8 Hz - 23.5 kHz, and achieves a frequency response of 55 Hz - 20.5 kHz.
Mix Three XLR or 1/4" Channels, Right on the Speaker
The I/O on the P1500X is particularly versatile. There are separate Neutrik XLR/TRS inputs on Inputs 1 and 2, with a Mic/Line switch to accommodate various signal sources. On Channel 3, there are 2 x 1/4-inch TS inputs. Each of these three channels has its own Level knob.
Send a Mono Mix to a Sub or Second Powered Speaker
For outputs, the P1500X has XLR Thru jacks on Channels 1 and 2. There is a third balanced XLR Mix Output that sums all three channels via the adjustable mix controls. This output allows you to run your signal quickly to another powered speaker, or to a recording input. Each of the three inputs is continually monitor-able with an indicator light that provides status on the incoming audio signal.
Useful Enhanced EQ and Bass Boost Switches
The P1500X benefits substantially from the presence of Enhanced EQ and VEGA Bass Boost switches. The Enhanced EQ adjusts the contour of the overall frequency response and brings more attenuation to the mid-range frequencies, creating more "focus" on the low and high frequencies and also eliminating potential feedback. This is exceptionally useful for DJs in situations where an external mixer or EQ unit device is not readily available.
The VEGA Bass Boost adds low frequency gain to the signal and dynamically adjusts the LF response to the operating volume -- great for when you're running without a subwoofer. When you want to use the P1500X with an external subwoofer, you'll likely want to engage the high-pass filter on these satellite speakers.
