Cerwin-Vega Car Subwoofers Make Their Way to Sonic Electronix
Not just any company is honored with an Academy Award for Special Technical Achievement but Cerwin-Vega was given that honor which is only one of the many reasons why they are one of the best Loudspeaker Company in the world. For over 50 years now Cerwin-Vega has been making strides in audio technologies and have received numerous awards and praise in pro, home, and mobile audio. The dedication to sound, quality and value is easily seen in Cerwin-Vega car subwoofers, from their entry level H.E.D series subwoofers to their higher-end, higher bass output Stroker series subwoofers. By setting the standards high on production and performance these subwoofers will meet any desired application and installation.
The HED124 is Cerwin-Vega’s 12” entry level subwoofer. With a peak power rating of 300 watts and RMS rating of 150 watts, this subwoofer is perfect for those looking to improve their car audio system with non-overwhelming or overbearing bass. The woofer features a composite polypropylene material that gives the woofer a perfect weight to strength ratio and increases durability. Just because it’s an “entry” level woofer does not mean that is not a quality woofer. The woofer’s radial contact convex domes geometrical design reduces cone flex and decreases distortion, while the linear rolled spider provides control and dynamic sound at any level of music. The HED124 uses other technologies such as cross-flow window venting, and a forged alloy yoke that really set it apart from other “entry” level subwoofers in its class.
The VMAX124 is Cerwin-Vega’s 12” subwoofer that carries a bit more of a punch. This woofer has a peak power handling of 1000 watts and an RMS rating of 500 watts. This woofer uses similar technologies found in other Cerwin-Vega subwoofers such as window framed venting for direct voice coil cooling and increased power handling and also a radial contact convex domes geometrical design which reduces cone flex and decreases distortion. The woofer offers a wide rubber surround for increased surface area and increased excursion handling at higher volume levels. The O2 Cast technology increases basket strength while lowering basket resonance giving you amazing performance and quality along with durability and a sound structure. With dual 2.5” voice coils and dual linear spiders for assembly cone control, the VMAX124 is the subwoofer that sets the “newbie” apart from that “true” car audio enthusiast.
Cerwin-Vega’s 12” STKR124 subwoofer is not for the faint at heart. With a peak power handling of 2400 watts and RMS rating of 1200 watts, this subwoofer has some serious bass output that is more common to competition subwoofers. Its mica reinforced polypropylene skeleton woofer cone and rubber surround increase the woofer’s performance, durability and quality. Cerwin-Vega wanted to make sure you get the most out of this woofer and for this reason incorporated a fixed sub-sonic filter at 18dB for increased low-frequency reproduction that will give you that really low hard-hitting bass. This woofer uses some of the same technologies from other Cerwin-Vega woofers such as radial contact convex domes, O2 Cast technology, and window framed venting that only increases the quality of the woofer. With such high power outputs the STKR124 has a heavy gauge die-cast aluminum frame able to handle the high-excursion levels and U-Term speaker terminals for a solid connection no matter how loud the woofer gets. The woofer also offers a field serviceable cone assembly allowing for a quick replacement of the cone if the woofer blows while competing, allowing you to continue competing in a matter of seconds. The STKR124 is Cerwin-Vega’s subwoofer that will really allow you to feel your music.
