XD Powered Desktop Speaker Series from Cerwin-Vega

Cerwin-Vega!, a Gibson Brand, is presenting its new P1000X 10-inch Powered Loudspeaker, the latest addition to its critically-acclaimed P-Series Powered Loudspeaker Line at Summer NAMM 2014 (Booth 825). Also on display will be the XD4 and XD5 Speakers and XD8s Subwoofer, the newly expanded offerings for the company’s XD Powered Desktop Speaker Series.

Slated for release in August, the P-Series P1000X is a versatile workhorse that can serve as a single speaker for a small venue, be daisy-chained for larger venues needing more coverage and SPL or be side-mounted as a floor monitor. Featuring the same controls as the acclaimed P1500X, the P1000X Powered Loudspeaker is a two-way, bi-amped, full-range bass-reflex speaker with a 10-inch woofer and high-frequency compression driver. Powered by a custom efficient 1000W Class-D amp, the P1000X has a proprietary hemi-conical horn that provides enhanced sound clarity and superb dispersion over an even and wide coverage area.

A built-in mixer with multiple channels and I/O connections allows for simple and fast setup, while enhanced EQ, VEGA BASS boost and high-pass filter controls enable exact tuning and exceptional performance for any event. Its lightweight, robust polymer enclosure includes a self-tightening pole cup, as well as comfortable ergonomic handles. Built-in rigging points and a remote volume port make the P1000X ideal for suspended installation.

Showgoers can also experience the stunning audio performance of the Cerwin-Vega! XD Series, which continues to support the company’s legacy of superior bass response and sonic clarity. Key design elements of the XD3, XD4 and XD5 powered desktop speakers and XD8s powered subwoofer, include optimized frequency response, overall transparency, low distortion and the company’s trademark bass performance. Each XD Series speaker features high output amplifiers, soft-dome tweeters and innovative enclosure design for superior sound, while the XD8s sub offers additional bass extension.

Equipped with metal covers, the XD4 features a 3/4-inch tweeter while the XD5 utilizes a one-inch tweeter. Unlike other desktop speaker systems, the Cerwin-Vega! XD Series is built with solid MDF wood enclosures, allowing it to deliver the same sound quality as home speaker systems. All speakers in the series come equipped with Cerwin-Vega!’s signature VEGA BASS Boost Switch, which engages an enhanced bass EQ circuit. The efficient XD8s also has, high SPL and an optimally designed port for proper low frequency phase alignment and minimal port turbulence. It ships with a Remote Control, which includes a subwoofer mute button and adjusts the overall system volume when using the accompanying XD Series speakers.
