Summary: I wanted a big sound...I got a big sound...and at a killer price! I had some big CV 12" 3-way monitors....they were rattling the windows....they operated right at that frequency where that would occur. Now, this box goes below that frequency range and thrums aloud tastefully with rap, rock, jazz...you name it. And the quality, warm CV sound is awesome. Sounds like an old Ampeg B-15 Portaflex vacuum tbe bass amp.
Summary: for what they cost they are hard to beat loud good sound quality the only problem is you need a powerfull amp i have mine on a 1000watts rms at 8ohms and they sound mint shake the living and wake the dead indeed
Summary: Absolutely love the Cerwin-Vega CLS 15's. The three way speaker design provides outstanding frequency reproduction clarity, from the highest highs to the lowest lows. I am using them in a home theatre environment and the results have been nothing short of phenominal. You can't go wrong with a Cerwnin-Vega product and these speakers really rock! One word of advice is that these are not "compact" speakers. They are quite large and have a big sound to match.
