Summary: Clear definition, accurate, powerful. You hear each instrument with authority like the musicians and their instruments are in the room and not just coming from a box. They hit hard and make you feel it throughout the entire range. Use a high power amp and heavy gauge speaker wire. Use high quality digital sources as well to really do these justice. They are massive and heavy. You'll need a hand truck or a helper to move them around.
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.
