Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesomeness!"
Overall: I was having difficulty deciding between the XLS-12's or the XLS-15's. Without being able to hear them prior to purchasing, the price of them at zZounds made up my mind. I couldn't pass up the price on the 12's! I went with the blemished ones which were brand new, unused, but the original boxes were thrashed and the grilles had a dent...big whoop. The price was excellent! Now for the sound of theses things; HOLY FRIGGIN COW!!! These are absolutely amazing sound quality! These topped off my XLS theater as they were the last piece. I already had the 6" center and the 15" sub, but was using some very old fronts from my teenage years. They were 15" 3-way Jensen's from the late 80's. They sounded great back in the day and actually still sound good but didn't have the clarity I was looking for in a theater setup. Having the 15's prior is why I was having difficulty deciding which to buy. These XLS-12's are CRYSTAL clear, will rattle anything off the walls and hit so hard that that that you would think a car ran into the side of your house! They definitely need to be amplified to get the true potential, but even off a 90W per ch. reciever, they were still astounding! Now they are amped at 150W RMS, which according to CV is still a little shy, but unless they are in an enormous room or a club, it is more than enough to make earth shattering sound and just amazing clarity! One downfall to boosting the watts to them was I had to amplify my center channel as well, but now the center channel sounds even better than it did before. The center is the XLS-6C. Honestly, with these 12's, I don't even NEED the 15" XLS sub, but man what a sound!!!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Crown XLS2502 & Cerwin Vega XLS-12"
Overall: Short answer: Buy the Crown XLS2502 Drive Core 2 amp! Long answer: Setup: Receiver: Pioneer VSX-1101 (I am upgrading this to an Onkyo) External power amp: Crown XLS2502 Drive Core 2 Speakers: (2) Cerwin Vega XLS-12, Cerwin Vega XLS-15S (powered sub), Cerwin Vega XLS 6C (center channel) Assumption: Crown amp driving the floor standing Cerwin Vega XLS-12 (3 way, 12” floor standing speakers). I had bought the Cerwin Vega XLS-12 that was first driven by the Pioneer receiver alone. It sounded good however at loud volumes, around 90 volume level on the receiver, it became very, very distorted. Sounded awful and was very disappointment. The speakers needed lots of power. So after much research I settled for the Crown XLS2502. WOW! I honestly do not know how loud can my system can go now. It is so clear at LOUD volume. ZERO DISOTRAION at any volume level. I had no idea that the speakers were that under powered by the receiver. When you hear your speakers cracking with distortion they are under powered, not because it’s too loud. My system at low-medium volume level sound good, but when cracked up to 90 they sound great. Lots of bass, extreme clear vocals from the mids and crisp highs from the tweeters. The Crown amp and Cerwin Vega XLS-12 are the best purchase I have ever made. My house is ready for a real party now. Sorry neighbors my house rivals most clubs.
