Summary: Go Big...or...Go Home! I am tired of all the mamby-pambies out there telling us small speakers and sub-woofers are the way to go. These are definitely the monster truck of home speakers but, while they are speakers designed for a man, they can play delicate like a woman. I am an Amazon Prime member but, I purchased my speakers new in a private sale and mine were packaged way beyond excessive so, I did not encounter some of the issues mentioned in other reviews.
Summary: i got the 14 xls-215 and they are running at 6 ohms through a 200 watt sony receiver. I found that running them flat works best. My Re-38 loved tone and effects. The top is pretty nice. A little scratchy. Same basic tweeter as the 38 with a lens for more dispersion. As with most soft dome it rolls off smoothly about 10k. The Mid range is also surrounded by a lens and rolls off around 5k. The tweeter and mid range drivers mix well.
Summary: Thy neighbors dun like me with a pair of these hooked up on movie nite nor when I wanna listen to my music at a volume that I share what I'm listening to with my neighbors.. But they sound great from low to high, great sound!!
Summary: I bought a pair of these back in 2012, and I still have them today. These speakers are huge and they play extremely loud. My neighbors hate them. I have these speakers hooked up to the CXA-10 amplifier and I also have a CVA-118 powered subwoofer and the EL-36C folded horn subwoofer as well. It's like a concert at my place all the time. These are the exact reason Cerwin-Vega! earned the title as "The LOUD Speaker Company!
Summary: I'd like to begin by saying that I frequently make purchases from Amazon and have never seen a need to return anything. This was a bad experience but upon investigation I found that this product was shipped directly from Cerwin Vega. I purchased these because I like to listen to music. I have a Harmon Kardan 3490 receiver and wanted some big sound. I received the speakers fast enough but they were just packaged in the original boxes.
Summary: This speaker is the real deal if you want bass and real house shaking bang from your box this this is for you... Dont waste your time going to any of the big Box stores the stuff they sell to hold a candle to this...
