The sound of the Cerwin Vega CLS 215 (1360 euro the couple) in the sum even at room levels was very well-mannered – neutral and dynamically not as cold as it frequently was the case previously in boxes of this caliber.

- Data sheet
When the CLS 215 of the American brand Cerwin Vega signal red membrane suspensions and a gross volume of brutal 267 litres from afar, this furniture is primarily intended: for larger party room and leisure facilities of all kinds, where it primarily depends on robust and sound pressure and less on Visual quality or Petite dimensions.
But that is a product for individuals as for professionals about 50 kilo box rather, because who prefer the improved mobility because felt covers or plastic housing with recessed handles.
The CLS 215 but has a wood-based housing with a surface in black ash. Against permanent tags, weight is well 50 kilos per copy.
A not insignificant part of it goes to the account of an Assembly that is truly appropriate washed at the price of only 1360 euro. Two parallel, each 15-inch long stroke driver huge coils with high solid Aluminum castings responsible for the bass range, supported by two thick bass reflex tubes on the back.
The so obtained transmission fundamentals can converge every price/performance-Fuchs the mouth watering. According to stereoplay lab the CLS 215 effortless 36 Hertz relative to-3 decibels, say, and they need no subwoofer for rock and pop. In extreme cases, around 115 decibels at 1 meter distance are achievable, including enough mathematically moderate 300 Watt.
Two to four piece enough these values, an acoustic cauldron into a medium-sized hobby cellar, which should hardly are professionally-oriented nightclubs. Pleasing way shatters the American less than many much more expensive high end living room models and a considerable frequency linearity can be realize with a very slight attenuation of the Center as it has often proved as a moderate means to avoid sharpening at high volumes.
A comparatively low coupled, sound leadership reinforced mid-range cone prevents that is the bass drivers in terms of votes bundling increasing due to the areas with increasing frequency noticeable too negative. Thus arises a similarly wide listening area as of more elegant HiFi-boxes used.
A striking sound leadership, also the tweeter helps achieve HiFi atypical sound pressure reserves; In addition, Ferrofluid ensures an improved heat dissipation during prolonged excesses.
Roxette band members would greatly enjoy to the Cerwin Vega certainly because so forcefully, loudly and up close, as the black Ami cars get rocked and hammered, which came already damn close sack-expensive eavesdropping or stage monitors.
Certainly not weak in Canton could oppose relatively little to this kind of Inferno, also the Horn to end the following no longer held 1 CX.
Even at radical levels, the Cerwin struck considerably, but here the canton was at the end then again ahead, that balance and spatial sounded and gave more emotions when singing. It detracted the charm of the Vega, because their sound was very well-mannered, neutral in the sum even at room levels and dynamically not as undercooled as earlier often was the case with boxes of this caliber.
