Overall: I've only had mine for 1 day. The moment I turned it on I felt and heard the difference. This single 18 might have more bang then 2 of my QSC KW 181's Thinking about selling my 2 QSC KW181's and buying 2 more of these. I have a big gig next week. Let's see how these hold up before I do that

Overall: These subs are good but couldn't keep up with my QSC KW181's. The CV's would be better for indoor applications. I do more outdoor gigs and the QSC have a much longer reach and the CV's drop off drastically and if I try to have them keep up with the QSC they start clipping. I'm getting more QSC KW181's

Overall: These subs are really good and loud...they def go lower than the KW181 @ 100Hz crossover.I use them with a pair of RCF HD12-A in crossover mode.At very high volumes when i use just one, the limit light will come on as expected which is fine. Just don't let it stay on solid.blinking limit light every now and then is perfectly fine and i play that way all night...bass output is deep as the specs show. The reason some say the QSC go louder is because QSC are better at higher frequencies 50-120hz range and fall off below that.However the cerwin vega sounds deep because it goes lower in 35-80 range.Lower is what you want in a sub.When I use two, things are easier and no limit lights.....If you have a van or truck,go for the 21" CVX...sounds as deep as two dual 18"...i'm very impressed.The wheels make moving this sub easy....the tour grade finish is excellent and grill is solid.Cerwin Vega is back with this sub.Only downside is no delay settings like the RCF SUB 8003-AS II or newer JBL SRX
