  • The most bang for the buck money can buy...

    To start with, I'll tell you right off, I am a life long audiophile. I have owned every kind of speaker and brand you can practically buy for under $5,000 a pair, and I am totally compelled to come back here and write this review. Why? Because I am just completely blown away by this pair of Cerwin Vega CLS-12's. They are, with out a doubt, the most musically accurate pair of speakers I have ever owned. The highs are crystalline, the mids are spot on as if a live performance was being performed in front of you, and the bass....aaaaaaahhh the bass. These speakers have tight, thumping, LOW bass. The kind that you feel, in your chair, in the floor, rattling the dishes in the cupboards out in the kitchen. And these speakers do all that without as much as a smitten of distortion, and at very loud levels. They LOVE loud. I have mine hooked up to a Pioneer VSX-1017TXV THX Select2 Certified receiver with 140 watts RMS per channel times 7.1 channels. I reassigned the two back channels to the front and have the CV's bi-amped with 280 watts RMS each. They'll take 300. So, I don't know what else to say but, BUY THESE SPEAKERS, YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT!!! There isn't another speaker built that can compare to these at this price, or even at many times the money. Cerwin Vega has done their home work. These speakers are extra ordinary. You rarely find this kind of value in this day and age.

    I just bought a pair of Cerwin Vega CLS-12, and I hooked them up to my Sherwood RX4105 105 watt per channel receiver, and they are too loud, and have clear audio, and my ears are ringing. Those 12 inch woofers has too much bass output that they will vibrate your walls in a room, and they will also vibrate your body as well. I turned the bass control all the way down on my Sherwood receiver, and those 12 inch woofers still have a strong punch on the bass output whenever I turned volume up playing music that had a lot of bass. Those 12 inch woofers draw a lot of current and put out a lot output especially around the 60 hertz range, and if I didn't turn my bass control down, my Sherwood receiver would shutdown. My Sherwood RX4105 receiver was design to run speakers with a impedance of 8 ohms or more. Cerwin Vega recommend running a receiver or a amplifier capable of running a speaker impedance of 8 ohms or less on the CLS-12, otherwise, you would not be able to crank up the bass without the amplifier or receiver shutting down. I bought a cheap pair of speakers with dual 5.25 inch woofers for $300, I was disappointed, and I wasted my money and time with them, and they didn't have the loudness, quality, and the bass like the CLS-12, and I blew out a tweeter on my cheap speakers. The CLS-12 is one of the most efficient speakers that I ever owned. You can put a little bit amplifier output in them and get a lot of sound out. If you're planning on playing loud music with a 100 watt amplifier or receiver, I would recommend the Cerwin Vega CLS-12, it is worth every penny, and you will not go wrong. When you do get them, turn your bass control down. The CLS-12 has plenty enough bass, also it has plenty of midrange, and high range audio as well.

    excellent sound--crisp, clear, and you can play these speakers as soft or loud as you want without distortion! it's more than enough for my living room, and their design is simple and appealing, so that even though large, they are not visually overwhelming.

    Firs thing I noticed is that these speakers are large. Over all I am very pleased with these speakers I have 120 watts RMS from a Yamaha RX-861 and they are very clear and do not distort when you turn them up. They were defiantly worth the price and sound better than many other speakers in a other higher price range.

    I had a pair of cerwin vega RE30's for about 10 years and I let my brother have them 4 years ago when I bought the Bose am 16. The bose speakers are nice, but I always thought the cerwin's sounded better and they were $1,200 cheaper. I started looking around on the net for some cerwin vega speakers and wound up here. I was really nervous about buying speakers on the net. well I ordered them and to my surprise I received the speakers in 4 days ( one of the days was a Sun.) I hooked the speakers up and they were better than the RE 30's that I had!! these speakers are the best sounding, hardest hitting speakers and the price is unbeleiveable. BUY THESE SPEAKERS. you'll be glad you did.

    If you like crystal clear highs loud mids and surprisingly deep base these are the speakers for you. These speakers play loud and they do not loose sound quality no matter how loud you turn them up.
