Summary: I just bought a pair of Cerwin Vega CLS-12, and I hooked them up to my Sherwood RX4105 105 watt per channel receiver, and they are too loud, and have clear audio, and my ears are ringing. Those 12 inch woofers has too much bass output that they will vibrate your walls in a room, and they will also vibrate your body as well.
Summary: excellent sound--crisp, clear, and you can play these speakers as soft or loud as you want without distortion! it's more than enough for my living room, and their design is simple and appealing, so that even though large, they are not visually overwhelming.
Summary: Firs thing I noticed is that these speakers are large. Over all I am very pleased with these speakers I have 120 watts RMS from a Yamaha RX-861 and they are very clear and do not distort when you turn them up. They were defiantly worth the price and sound better than many other speakers in a other higher price range.
Summary: I had a pair of cerwin vega RE30's for about 10 years and I let my brother have them 4 years ago when I bought the Bose am 16. The bose speakers are nice, but I always thought the cerwin's sounded better and they were $1,200 cheaper. I started looking around on the net for some cerwin vega speakers and wound up here. I was really nervous about buying speakers on the net.
Summary: To start with, I'll tell you right off, I am a life long audiophile. I have owned every kind of speaker and brand you can practically buy for under $5,000 a pair, and I am totally compelled to come back here and write this review. Why? Because I am just completely blown away by this pair of Cerwin Vega CLS-12's. They are, with out a doubt, the most musically accurate pair of speakers I have ever owned.
Summary: If you like crystal clear highs loud mids and surprisingly deep base these are the speakers for you. These speakers play loud and they do not loose sound quality no matter how loud you turn them up.
