Cerwin-Vega! has made two significant additions to its Pro series of installation speaker systems. Following the success of the V-152, the Californian-based company has now released the V-252 - a dual 15" two-way, full-range system. It has also revisited those two little digits - 36; drawing on the heritage of the renowned L-36PE and SL-36B, the company has now reinvented its legendary ‘earthquake’ sound in the form of a ‘compact tremor’ - an 18" folded horn known as the LR-36. The V-252’s twin 15" woofers share space with a bi-morph HF driver mounted on a proprietary spherical waveguide horn. Designed as a stand-alone, and producing tremendous bass response, the V-252 does not require bi-amping with a subwoofer. In order to attain a smooth response at high SPLs, Cerwin-Vega! has developed a proprietary spherical waveguide tweeter horn flare. The LR-36 utilises a newly-designed 18" woofer, with clean output at 35Hz, and a bias control system for improved linearity and accurate punch. Other innovative features include a newly-designed 18" high-excursion woofer, with die-cast aluminium frame and reverse loading of the woofer, to utilise inherent compression between the cone and the frame.
