The SUB-15 is a compact direct-radiating 15" subwoofer that delivers performance found in products twice the size and price! Installers will immediately see the benefit of a high-power subwoofer (350 watts program/700 watts peak) in a package the size of a beer cooler!
Unlike many competitors, Cerwin-Vega designs and manufactures its own woofers and cabinets at its home facility in California. A rugged diecast woofer frame provides rigidity and precision for tighter tolerances and higher overall efficiency. The oversize magnet structure, combined with a proprietary metal alloy voice coil former, maximizes magnetic and electrical efficiency. A 1/2" thick, 8 lb. steel top plate and a 3" voice coil gives reliable operation at high power levels.
Cerwin-Vega's innovative venting system makes the woofer see an acoustic load larger than a single oversize port, resulting in a 3 to 6 dB increase in bass response! The direct radiating, slot venting system allows for perfect coupling with the floor, permitting maximum bass loading regardless of whether the cabinet is placed in a corner, near a wall, or even in the middle of the floor! This remarkable capability high performance in any location combined with its convenient size makes the SUB-15 a perfect solution for applications with limited space.
The high quality plywood cabinet is covered with solid grey carpet and features a full steel grille, recessed pocket handles, and rubber feet. A 1 3/8" (35 mm) socket mount located in the top of the cabinet permits the use of a pole for quick and easy positioning of a Cerwin-Vega full-range or mid-high cabinet above the subwoofer.
Connecting through the SUB-15's internal 150 Hz high-pass crossover substantially improves the effective power handling of the pole-mounted mid-high cabinet while minimizing the amplifier load. The SUB-15's selectable low-pass filter helps acoustically conceal the subwoofer by removing vocals from a full-range amplifier feed; the internal high-pass and low-pass filters may be individually bypassed for biamp operation with an electronic crossover. A combination of Neutrik SpeakonTM 4-pin and 1/4" phone plug connectors provide hook-up flexibility.
Words and specifications tell only part of the story. As ever, Cerwin-Vega's advantage is performance. Listen to a SUB-15 (or any other Cerwin-Vega product) to appreciate why professional DJs, musicians, and installers around the world choose Cerwin-Vega. The SUB-15 is the latest example of our design philosophy: Ultra-high efficiency and high power handling with unequaled dynamic capability. Made in the U.S.A. since 1954 - Cerwin-Vega!
