Summary: Where to start, I guess I can start from previous subwoofers. I had the cerwin vega cls-15 or what ever it is the one they still have on amazon here 15" powered. I wasn't happy with that subwoofer, although build quality and speaker/amp seemed very good. It just didn't give the effect I was going for. I then came across 2 epik empires on craigslist at a good price. Now those sub have 2 15" powered speakers in each cabinet, yes a total of 4 15"s which is crazy.
Summary: My 12 inch Klipsch subwoofer sounds great! But playing loud movies and music, I always worried I would blow it. Was looking at the 18inch and 21 inch options and weighing the price difference. I finally decided on the 21 inch version because otherwise, I would always wonder ... WOW! This thing in a small game room (used as a theater room) is just incredible!
Summary: First, let me just warn you that this thing is huge in disguise. Read the measurements, and it's something like 22" square, and 32" high. That doesn't sound very big... until you get it in your livingroom! Then it looks like something that should be on stage for a concert. Then, the weight. Unless you're a very strong man, you will need help moving this 180 lbs of hardwood, speaker, and whatever else is inside this thing.
Summary: I have always wanted a sub that would not only work for movies but also not have a problem keeping up with LOUD playing of music, Rap, Rock anything. I also wanted a sub that would produce enough bass to make a house sound like a Car with 2 12s or even a Club... This sub will NOT disappoint! Does what you would thing, SLAMMS, and Keeps going, the amp does not even get hot. just puts out massive amounts of bass. Out side my house rattles like trunk!
Summary: This is the sub I have been searching for my whole life. For years I have bought all different types of powered subs and have never found anything that wowed me. I love having very deep powerful bass. This sub delivers clean undistorted bass that hits EXTREMELY hard when called upon. I use it in my living room (you have to buy an adapter to convert the DJ plug hook up to a RCA FYI). The build quality is excellent and I just cant say enough about this sub.
Summary: These babies are awesome. There is nothing like them. They beat out any sub. The power from these things are amazing. Anybody who has ever owned these subs or the CVA-118 knows what Im talking about. Definitely recommend buying.
Summary: Have two of these and thought they were cool for awhile, but the cabinets developed horrible rattling within a year. In fact all the Cerwin Vega cabinets we've had the same problem with. Sound great at first, cabinets fall apart quickly. Total waste of money if you plan on using them regularly. Save yourself a ton of time, money, and frustration and buy some used higher quality speakers. New Cerwin Vega quality is just sad.
yea, its as loud as you would expect, simply amazing

Summary: not purchased on amazon but figured I would write a review, to put it simply, wow... its so clean and hits so hard. not "muddy" or delayed at all because of its size. and man when I have people over and tell them that this beast is a sub woofer and not a table, their jaws drop. its great seeing people reaction to the sight of it, but when I turn it up.
Summary: I got a pair of these by mere accident, a friend of mine was closing an electronics store he had and he owed me some money so he gave me a couple of things from it as payment, among them was a pair of CVA 121 and 6 CVA 28. At first I thought Id sell them since I didnt think I'd be using them since I had Just purchased 12 Xtreme Speakers which is a brand of european fine concert speakers, like meyer (4 18"subs 4 mids and 4 highs) Which by the way set me back 35k without...
Summary: I never write reviews but this beast deserves it I bought this baby about 4 months ago, for a home theater system. I wanted something to really shake the floor and walls. keep in mind alot of professional theaters will use a single 21" subwoofer, or duel 18" to rock a room that is suited for over a hundred people. buy a pair of the CVA-28's to compliment the amazing low frequancy.
