Summary: When i got this thing home i ran it in as you do and then i gave it a pounding and like the reviews on the 12 inch modle it would cut out and then back in when it cooled down, well i took it stright back and asked for a repair, the repair was a new amp and i don't think cerwin was happy because the stockest stoped stocking them after this repair.
Summary: If you don't mind the size of this thing, and don't want to spend a lot of money, this is your sub. Great for both movies and music. The power cord is loose fitting, but I had it taped to the back which worked. Smaller ones with this amount of power will cost you at least double.
Summary: This sub will fill your bass needs and then some. The power of this speaker allows it to easily handle standard use for movies, music, etc. but it is also ready to rumble when you want to crank it to 11 for parties, action movie premieres, or anything else that will rock the house. There are higher quality subs that can be purchased if you really are picky about how tight the bass is but they come at a price.
Summary: Wow! That's some bump, great for music, great for movies and is so pretty. The amp could be more powerful but I really don't think it needs to be. It would just make the specs looks better if it had say a 600 watt amp but with the size of this sub and the enclosure the 400 watts it pumps out is plenty to beat out most any sub under a $1000 so for $400 it's a no brainer.
Summary: I purchased this based on my knowledge of Cerwin Vega's long-standing tradition of building great "large enclosure" systems. This is a tremendously LARGE unit and has an AWESOME big speaker sound. I've watched several movies with this sub as well as played a variety of music and it is wonderful. Explosions, music, EVERYTHING is the way a subwoofer is supposed to sound. I gave it 4 stars because I would have liked to see more than 200 RMS watts to this woofer.
Summary: This sub is great. It is quite large however (and heavy), so be aware if you are planning on using this in a small room. It might be overkill for some. Of course I'm the type that that there is no such thing as too much bass :-) I just can't give enough praise for this item's quality though. It is very well made, solid, and attractive. I'm using this sub with the large matching Cerwin Vega speakers I got here on Overstock and love it.
Summary: The Cerwin Vega CLS-15S 450W Front-firing Subwoofer was the best deal you could get for a subwoofer of this caliber and reputation the Company. It has enhanced the overall sound of my system so much all my neighbors now come over to watch movies for the theater like sound.
Summary: First I must say, if you are looking for a powered home sub-woofer that can perform at like say,..... concert like volume levels, then this is the sub for you. This sub rivals that of a high end concert sub-woofer, it sounds that good! After listening to higher priced subs in its class, this sub will easily blow most away. I grabed this sub off amazon.com over a year ago, and am very satisfied with its ongoing performance.
