Cerwin-Vega introduces its new P-Series professional P.A. system designed for any sound reinforcement application, from live performances to public speeches. The P-Series family includes two active speaker products: the P1500X ($1,199) and the P1800SX ($1,499).

The P1500X is a two-way, bi-amped, full-range bass-reflex speaker. It employs a 15-inch woofer and high-frequency compression driver, is powered by a custom Class-D amp and is rated at 1,500 watts. A proprietary "hemi-conical" horn promises enhanced sound clarity over an even and wide coverage area. It has a built-in mixer with I/O connections, enhanced EQ, Vega Bass boost and highpass filters for precise tuning. The P1500X can be used as a single speaker for a small venue, in pairs for a larger venue that requires more coverage and SPL, or side mounted as a floor monitor for a band.

The P1500X’s lightweight, robust polymer enclosure includes a two position pole cup with an adjustable mounting point, as well as ergonomically designed handles. Built-in rigging points and a remote volume port allow for suspended installation.

The P1800SX is a powered 18-inch subwoofer with a custom 2,000W Class-D amp. The large woofer and amplifier are enclosed in a hardwood cabinet, a combination that promises a high level of bass punch and extreme low end response. Like the P1500X, the P1800SX has frequency-shaping controls, a Vega Bass boost, and a highpass filter switch (as a built-in crossover). While designed for use with the P1500X, the P1800SX can be used for bottom-end extension with competitive products.

Additionally, the Thru and Mix output options allow for system expandability and fast daisy-chain connections between components.
