Cerwin Vega, the leader of all things loud and 30Mhz, announced the launch of their new 21-inch (and an 18 incher too) Active subwoofer. Whats so special besides the 1200 watt amp packaged into the selfpowered earthmover is that the box itself will be no bigger than what would hold a 18 inch sub from some other company. You'll have to shell out a hefty 2 grand for 21 inches of pure face shattering power, or a meager $1499 for the 18 incher. Click on for the full press release Via fosfor Gadgets Cerwin Vega! Announces the First 21-inch Active Subwoofer on the Market Using Legendary Stroker™ Technology New line of active subwoofers to launch at Musikmesse include 21-inch and 18-inch Hollywood, Fla. – (March 29, 2007) – Cerwin Vega!, a leading manufacturer of loudspeakers and audio products, proudly announces the introduction of a new line of professional active subwoofers at Musikmesse. The Cerwin-Vega Active Series consists of two unique models, CVA-121 and CVA-118, featuring Cerwin Vega’s legendary driver design and bass performance, incorporated in a small compact footprint. Built-in amplifiers provide a completely integrated active system, and a functional cast aluminum grill doubles as a heat-sink to minimize power compression and maximize driver performance. Along with XLR and ¼-in connectors, the CVA subwoofers have Master/Slave output connectors that allow for multiple CVA subwoofers to be daisy-chained together using a single signal. The subwoofers also feature a 35 mm pole-mount socket to accommodate a satellite speaker for full range performance and the CVA-121 includes removable steel casters for portability. Both subwoofer enclosures are constructed of 18 mm hardwood and finished with the option of a durable Coolex® polyurethane paint or high-grade black carpet finish. From the company who pioneered bass and subwoofer technology, Cerwin Vega is the first loudspeaker company to successfully design a 1200 watt, 21-inch active subwoofer. The CVA-121 features Cerwin Vega’s innovative Stroker technology, which utilizes a three spider driver design to optimize cone excursion and voice coil efficiency. The powerful built-in 1200 watt (2400 watt peak), high-efficiency Class H amplifier provides a highly-qualified amp solution. In addition, the CVA-121 includes a unique onboard parametric equalizer that allows for added adjustment of the gain, frequency and Q for customized performance options. To add to its unique design, the subwoofer is housed in a cabinet the size of a traditional 18-inch subwoofer, and includes a striking cast aluminum grille design.

When Raleigh officials announced in February that they were rolling out an LED lit city in hopes of using less energy, little did they know that the lights would also make people feel safer. In a recent survey from Cree, the local RTP based company who created the LED's for the city, results showed that an overall feeling of safety from commuters was increased by %76 when the new lights were installed in a parking garage.
the people of Raleigh also felt for the most part that the lights were brighter and made the parking deck look cleaner. I'm gonna call up the old ex in Raleigh and ask him what he thinks. Via Engadget
