        Comments about Cerwin-Vega VE-12F 3-way Tower Speaker:

        If powered properly these speakers will sound incredible with any type of music. from 50's/ 60's rock and roll, to Notorious B.I.G., to Megadeth !!! Even better ....NO Finicky subs to worry About!! Every room has a sweet spot regarding subs. And that could be smack dab in the middle of the room too.
        ( Standing waves are a real B. Room gain can also be a big problem.)

        As well...

        I lost my 105 pound /Martin Logan Descent i/ to power surge. The auto detect turned on the sub because it registered like A signal. Then it got cooked. Freight for service was VERY expensive.

        Don't have to worry about that anymore. Worst case that can happen here is I box up my power amp for service. And on my way. Piece of cake.

        Regarding Sound......

        I HAVE ALL THE BASS AND CLARITY I WANT!!! I COULD NOT FIND A MORE VERSATILE SPEAKER EVER!!! NO ONE DOES THIS BETTER!!!

        Home theater....., No problem!!!

        THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER WHEN BUYING THESE IS PROPER POWER!!!! If you under power them the will distort and your amp will go out on Protection mode. This is really bad for your amp and speakers!!!!! YAAAAAH!!! They will play with a basic receiver because of their efficiency. But turn them up and you will be over driving your amp! BAD!, BAD!, BAD!

        Weather you have the VE 12's or 15's.... When I was on the phone with CERWIN VEGA, I found out that they are listing Peek wattage (MAX Wattage). The 12's 300 watts peek. The 15's 400 watts peek. Cerwin says to take the peek and cut it in half to find the running wattage or RMS.

        So the 12's are 150 watts RMS & the 15's are 200 watts RMS. The Rule of thumb is to TAKE THE RUNNING WATTAGE (RMS) and ADD 50% to it so you have enough power to handle the demand of heavy bass and transient peeks. But not so much power that you a ask the woofer to do to much work and rip the woofer apart.

        SO... 150 watt times .5 = 75 watts additional head room on top of RMS. So you need a amp the is About 225 watts RMS at 8 ohms. ( 150 plus 75=225 watts)

        Do this And you will have CERWIN VEGA Music Euphoria!!!!!!

        THEY ARE SOO AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

          Glad to be able to get my hands on traditional speakers. Music sounds much better on full-range speakers, rather than 5.1. Subs are nice for movie sound effects for exaggerated sound. But these CV's resemble the old JBL 4311's.

          CERWIN VEGA Speakers are the BEST in my book. I have been sold on CVs since my first set, the D-9s I bought in 1988. This is my 3rd home stereo/theater system with CV speakers and its still the BEST!!

          Comments about Cerwin-Vega VE-12F 3-way Tower Speaker:

          After much research I decided to go with the CV - VE12s. These things are bad to the bone! The cabinets are solid wood, not particle board or plywood. I have them connected to a 5.1 receiver and haven't even felt the need for a sub. The bass if full and there are plenty of mids and highs as well. Well worth every penny. I highly recommend them.
