New Cerwin-Vega Folded Horn Subwoofers Combine Performance and Stunning Looks (October 21, 2008)


October 21, 2008 - Hollywood, CA - Cerwin-Vega!, a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and audio products, proudly announces the introduction of the C-Series of passive folded horn subwoofers. The new C-Series provides performance improvements over previous folded horns and incorporates a striking new design. The new C-Series is aimed at gigging musicians, nightclubs, live performance venues and sound companies that demand the ultimate in accurate and loud bass reinforcement.

Cerwin-Vega speakers are renowned for their earth-rumbling bass characteristics and the C-series folded horn subwoofers continue this legacy. Folded horns differ from traditional subwoofers in that they use a complex path within the speaker enclosure to create a horn that reinforces bass frequencies. This results in a speaker that plays larger and louder than the speaker’s driver.

The C-series features three new models: the AB-36C, EL-36C and the JE-36C, each featuring a rugged, custom-designed Cerwin-Vega 18” cast-frame speaker. With six and a half feet of folded horn chamber length in the AB-36C and the EL-36C, and five feet of folded horn chamber length in the JE-36C, the C-Series delivers more bass per square inch than other subwoofers. All of the C-series folded horns provide enhanced SPL performance, beefy and rugged die cast aluminum doors that improves heat dissipation, an attractive curved horn mouth bracing for smoother frequency response, and reinforced pole cups and handles for easier setup and transport.

Performance enhancements for the AB-36C include Stroker technology from the legendary Cerwin-Vega mobile audio division, which translates into increased output and reduced distortion. Low frequency performance has been increased in the JE-36C due to a new cabinet design.

“We are extremely proud to announce that we have made the industry’s best folded horns even better,” states Michael Newman, Brand Manager for Cerwin-Vega. “True to Cerwin-Vega’s legacy, the entire C-Series line delivers extreme sound levels and thundering bass in a roadworthy package.“

The C-Series folded horns are available now at leading retailers worldwide...

Cerwin Vega P-Series Powered Speakers

Cerwin Vega has been making speakers for almost every application for decades. My very first pair of DJ speakers were Cerwin Vega 12's that my Dad passed down to me from the 70's. They thumped for another 20 years before I replaced them. Cerwin Vega has announced the new P-series Active (powered) PA speaker lineup that packs huge power while still being Portable for Mobile DJ use.
