Al's Cerwin Vega CVE-10 active speaker review

(1/1)

Al Poulin:
Hey boys and girls,

Another review for you! This time I had fun testing Cerwin Vega's CVE-10 active speaker AND comparing it to my RCF Art 310As as well as DXR8s. While not quite as smooth sounding in the mids and top end as either the RCF of Yamaha, the CV can certainly hold its own output wise and the effective processing (and no limit light) make them virtually idiot proof. Keep sending them signal and they get louder and louder as the box gets gradually high passed up to (from what I hear) 100hz or so - even without the user touching a single button. Clever and effective although very audible, especially if you're using them full range :) Interesting and great for beginners and even regular DJs and sound guys looking for a clean looking lightweight monitor of FOH for smaller gigs. They really deliver the S

We all enjoy and appreciate reviews, but just wondering why you're not putting them in the REVIEW forum where they belong.

This is pretty much the only place in the Prosoundweb site that I visit and post, why I usually just share here :)

I own the cve 12s and cve 18s subs. Do I need to use a.crossover when running bass drums and keys threw them

The subs have hi-passed (100hz) outputs to send to the tops (output select in the back should be set to 100hz HPF). So go mixer to subs then subs to tops to benefit from this built-in crossover. This will keep the bass out of your tops so they can better produce mids and highs at higher volumes.
