The Cerwin-Vega! CXA-Series high performance stereo and bridgeable power amplifiers are for those that want to sound like a pro! These home-use versions of the renowned Cerwin-Vega! Professional series amplifiers. The same capability for shock and awe, but with input/output connections and a form factor suited for performing at home versus on stage.

These workhorses have the muscle to accommodate the most demanding audio challenges. With power ratings of up to 1800 watts* (for the CXA 8) and 2800 watts* (for the CXA 10), exceptional THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and Signal-to-Noise ratings, the CV Series power amps are the right choice for a wide range of music and home theater applications.

To ensure reliable operation the CXA amps include a highly efficient variable speed tunnel cooling system that dynamically follows amplifier output levels. When unneeded, the fans shut down entirely thereby reducing ambient noise. The 21-position detent level control knobs help you set and maintain volume settings. Signal and clip indicators provide a convenient way to monitor the amplifier's status. Proven professionally -- the CXA-Series Amps are right for the job – even when the "job" is entertaining friends and family.
