i have cerwin vega vs120s and i love them. i have them as front channels in a 5.2 set up, and sometimes i wonder why i even have two subs. one 8in sub would be a great addition to my setup as the two 10s are not needed when i have the vs120s running at 350watts rms each. the cerwin vega subs are great too.
i feel people hate on the new cerwin vega stuff because they say its not as good as the old stuff. i think the VE line and the XLS line are some of cerwin vegas finest.(the xls215s at the top of the list)
feel free to share any pics of you CVs and your HT with cv components(amps or surround speakers)
pics coming soon
New and old every where I go people are talking about how they have blown there tweeters. You can always check out this site nothing but cerwin vega people.
hahaha i came here from that forum. they all were rude so i posted pics of fat half naked fat men titled "my new xls215 and at15s +hfa18 sub" that got me ip banned. i really did not want to be on the forum anymore since there was really no helpful feed back and a lot of rudeness. i would never do that to this forum though. but in my two months of being there, ive never seen anybody post about blown tweeter
those people are so stupid. if they did not like a topic i made, it would get deleted and i would b pissed. and there would be like 2 people on that site at once.
i like the idea, but not the people. i liked some people though,
if you are truly done with that website, you should post the pics that i did! lol
lol. take screen shots of it lol
On a side note Im picking up some Cerwin vegas LS-12s up today with a reciever and cd player for 120
So your running VS-120s how do the woofers sound I was thinking of getting me some but I couldnt find much info on them except that there rated at 255 watts which I dnt really believe I mean they look identical to the LS woofers
i believe the woofers pretty much sound the same.
Here's my 7.1 CV theater. All of the speakers are from the CLS line.

That's very likely the nicest CV system set-up I've ever seen. I wish the image possessed a bit more rez, I'd like to examine the details further.
Thanks for sharing.

Was entertaining the idea of buying a pair a XLS 28s and the XLS 6C for a modestly priced upgrade to my front 3. Mostly movies and TV but music is still important.
Any thoughts? I will be running these with a SVS PC12+.

I have just ordered an emotiva upa-700. Comes in Nov 11. Thoughts on if the emotiva is the right purchase to push my system to better sound/louder?
Pics coming soon!
No problem with blowing tweeters and these speakers got abused bigtime! Not to mention I had plenty of friends who owned CV as far back as the late 70's or early 80's models all the way up to the VE series and nobody ever blew a driver on them. I personally measured 125dB at 3 meters from my VS-150. Oh yea, I did blow caps in the crossovers, heh... But that could of still been from running a lower powered AVR into clipping? I used those speakers with everything from a 100watt AVR to a 350watt per channel Carver poweramp. Who knows where the blown caps came from as I bought them as demo floor models from a going out of business Silo. I remember when Sears used to sell CV.
I used to have a 7.4 setup with 7 CLS 215 speakers, 2 dual 18'' subs, and 2 single 18''subs. I've moved on since then but it is still the most powerful setup I've ever owned.

helloooooooooooooooo .. just joined and this is cool , anyways I am looking into getting the CV1800 to power my XLS215 . In the meantime I am thinking of buying the XLS-6 and XLS6c for surround to almost complete the gaming experience :p but dam those Cerwin-Vega CVHF-A21S look killer .
would buying 2 - XLS6c speakers be better than having 2 - XLS6 speakers for surrounds ? ya think it would be with an extra 6.5" speaker . I might have to try that :) ... 3 - XLS6c speakers ? hmmmmmmmm.
