With advanced Stroker Technology for clean and massive low end.

The AB-36CX "Afterburner" is a highly advanced design that incorporates Cerwin-Vega's 50 years of experience in building some of the industry's best-known subwoofers. Its design makes it ideal for use in the most demanding environments where pure bass power is the goal, such as installations, live sound, mobile DJs, and club applications. The "X" at the end of the model number signifies that this enclosure is painted rather than carpeted, which has the advantage of being easier to clean or touch up after events.

With six and a half feet of folded horn chamber length in the cabinet, the new AB-36CX Folded Horn Subwoofer has bass frequency extension similar to a 36" driver with even more SPL performance.

In addition, the curved horn mouth bracing provides a smoother frequency response and the enhanced front corner bracing offers extra durability.

Stroker Technology
The AB-36CX features Stroker Technology for increased power handling, decreased distortion, and radial cooling fins. Stroker is a collection of Cerwin-Vega-pioneered technologies that when combined together, improve reliability and power handling to a speaker driver while reducing distortion. A striking die cast door has improved heat dissipation capabilities and sports a "Stroker 18" metal badge.

Stroker reinforces critical structures of the woofer and improves the transfer of heat away from the speaker components. This is one of the reasons why Cerwin-Vega subwoofers and folded horns play louder and take more abuse than competing products.

Stoker Technology features
Double inverted spider cancels non-linearities for smooth excursion performance
Upper and lower shorting rings reduce driver distortion as well as provide enhanced cooling of the voice coil
Steel Tube used for 21" driver bracing and venting for greater cooling capacity
The stroker pole serves as the third spider support and a heatsink to dissapate heat from the voice coil
The third spider provides another plane of support for extremely reliable performance and high SPL levels
High carbon fiber content in cone provides enhanced strength, toughness and rigidity
