Product Description

The Cerwin Vega TS42 bass subwoofer is the loudest, deepest, and most powerful folded horn ever created by Cerwin-Vega! Its magnificent design and outstanding features makes it ideal for use in the most challenging scenarios where vigorous bass is needed, such as live sound, installations, large venues, mobile DJs, and club applications.

Featuring a gigantic 21 inch woofer with advanced Stroker technology and delivering 144 dB of maximum SPL - better than two 18 inch folded horn speakers - the TS-42 raises the low frequency performance bar to the next level. The TS-42 Folded Horn delivers more bass per square inch than other subwoofer designs and includes a curved horn mouth bracing for smoother frequency response, a stunning cast aluminum C-Series door that acts as a functional heat sink, and extra deep pole cups for increased stability with full-range speakers.

The TS-42 is a big and sturdy speaker, but thanks to its integrated wheels and extra handles you are able to easily move and transport it.

The C-Series delivers more bass per square inch than other subwoofer designs and achieves levels of performance. A curved horn mouth bracing delivers smoother frequency response, a rugged die cast aluminum door improves heat dissipation, and a redesigned, deeper pole cup with added reinforcement for improved top speaker stability. Integrated wheels plus a Cerwin-Vega! ergonomic handle make for easier transportability.

Folded Horn Technology

Cerwin-Vega's folded horn subwoofer systems utilize an incredibly efficient folded hyperbolic horn design. This enables the enclosure to contain a longer sound path which amplifies the bass frequencies while keeping the enclosure compact in size for portability. The path length and flare rate delivers bone crushing low-end down to 30Hz.

The design of practical, portable bass horns has always challenged audio engineers because low frequency wavelengths are so large (e.g., 22.5 ft/6.9 m at 50 Hz) that they require a long horn. The challenge to reduce the horn's dimensions without decreasing its length results in a technique that involves "folding" the horn. This technique collapses the physical dimensions of the horn without reducing its length by physically folding the horn within a cabinet.

The Cerwin-Vega! folded horns have been acoustically optimized to achieve high output and low distortion while maintaining clarity and impact. Special attention to rear chamber, throat geometry, and horn profile results in a folded horn design that doesn't exhibit the typical horn coloration of competing products.

Cerwin-Vega! folded horns, on average, produce 6 dB more output at 1 watt than a dual 18 inch vented box. This result is four times the output with half the number of drivers. Purchase costs are drastically reduced due to the need for fewer cabinets. A smaller number of cabinets is able to deliver a superior level of clean clear bass. Powering far fewer cabinets yields large cost savings in amplification. The net result is loud sub bass that moves enough air to blow the hairpiece off the competition.

Enhanced Portability

Of course, the C-Series folded horn systems have integrated wheels and a Cerwin-Vega! ergonomic handle for easier transportability. The ergonomic design allows the Series to be moved by a single person.
