Powerful, portable speaker system with legendary Cerwin-Vega! Bass

Cerwin-Vega!® introduces its new P-Series professional PA system, which delivers a new standard in  power and bass punch, suited for any sound reinforcement application,  from live performances to public speeches. The P-Series family includes  two active speaker products: the P1500X and  the P1800SX.

The  heart of the P-Series is the P1500X, a two-way, bi-amped, full-range  bass-reflex speaker. It employs a 15-inch woofer and high-frequency  compression  driver, powered by a custom Class-D amp. With a rating of 1500W, the  P1500X is the most powerful PA product in its price class. A proprietary  hemi-conical horn provides enhanced sound clarity over an even and wide  coverage area. A built-in mixer with I/O connections  allows for simple and fast setup, while enhanced EQ, VEGA BASS boost and high-pass filters enable exact tuning and  exceptional performance for any event. The P1500X is a versatile product  that can be used as a single speaker for a small venue, set in pairs  for a larger venue needing 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  comfortable ergonomic handles. These features provide users with  versatility and comfort. Built-in rigging points and remote volume port  make the P1500X ideal for suspended installation.

The  muscle of the P-Series is the P1800SX, a powered subwoofer, employing  an 18-inch woofer with a custom 2000W Class-D amp. The large woofer and  amplifier  are enclosed in a hardwood cabinet, the combination of which provides a  high level of bass punch and extreme low end response, both  Cerwin-Vega! trademarks. Like the P1500X, the P1800SX has  frequency-shaping controls, a VEGA BASS boost, and a high-pass filter  switch (as a built-in crossover). This ensures that the user has the  right amount of bass for a particular venue. 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.

The P-Series launches September 2012 with the suggested list price for a P1500X at $1199 USD and the P1800SX is at $1499 USD.
