Product Details

Cerwin-Vega CVA-118X 18" Active PA Subwoofer 700W RMS

The CVA-118 shares many of the features and benefits found in its bigger 21" brother, but with an even more compact enclosure. The CVA-118 is a high-performance, compact 18" active subwoofer with an integrated 700 watt amplifier. The legendary Cerwin-Vega woofer design is reflected in this 18" woofer offering maximum bass performance with extreme power, handling and exceptional low-frequency response. The CVA-118 features built-in amplification for an integrated all-in-one solution with a powerful 1,400 watt of peak power output.

A unique and striking cast aluminum grille protects the woofer while doubling as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and optimizing driver performance. Housed in a compact hardwood enclosure designed the size of a standard 15" subwoofer footprint, the CVA-118 is highly portable and durable with the option of a durable Coolex® polyurethane paint or high-grade black carpet finish. Along with XLR and 1/4" TRS connectors, the CVA-118 has Master/Slave output connectors that allow for multiple CVA subwoofers to be daisy-chained together using a single signal. This compact active sub also features a 35 mm pole-mount socket to accommodate a satellite speaker for full-range performance.

Of course, flexible input connections, daisy-chain capability, and mounting accessories makes the CVA-118 the perfect first choice when building an easy to use, flexible and powerful bottom end foundation.

Cerwin-Vega CVA-118X 18" Active PA Subwoofer 700W RMS

My CVA-118X stays on "protected" mode. Any idea what the solution is?

Asked by: PiCH
There is nothing in the manual that explains what to do if this light comes on, and it could be cause by many different things. I would recommend contacting Cerwin Vega directly for more help with this problem.
