For nearly fifty years, Cerwin-Vega has set the standard
for bass horn technology worldwide, exemplified
by the famous L-36PE and SL-36 "Portable
Earthquake" horns; the most successful and widely
imitated bass horns on the market. For the SL-36B
"Super-sub," Cerwin-Vega has developed a new
18" woofer with more output at 30 Hz, and a
unique dual action bias control system for improved
linearity and accurate "punch." The new 18"
driver, in conjunction with numerous innovations
inherent in Cerwin-Vega bass horns, results in unrivaled
performance. Some of the features include:
NEWLY DESIGNED HIGH EXCURSION WOOFER:
The new high-compliance deep-excursion suspension system maintains linearity for decreased distortion between 30 Hz and 60 Hz. Distortion is decreased by as much as 10-15 dB, even at frequencies below 60 Hz!
The newly designed 189SW 18" driver features a 3" voice coil assembly with an oversize magnet assembly. Coupled with the remarkable 18" driver is a folded hyperbolic horn with a path length greater than 6 feet and a flare rate yielding a theoretical cutoff of 30 Hz and a mouth area of six square feet. The 189SW driver operates in an optimally-sized sealed enclosure which serves to offset the reactance of the horn in the cutoff region. The increase in resistive portion of the air load allows greater output down to the lowest frequency of the horn's operation.
ASYMMETRICAL SLOT LOADING: The unique
throat exit is designed for optimum aperture.
provides uniform loading at the throat of the
horn, spreading the energy across the width of
the throat area for higher efficiency and more
ALUMINUM WOOFER CHAMBER PANEL: The heat
sink characteristic of the aluminum panel provides
greater power handling and less power
compression over the long term.
INCREASED HORN PATH LENGTH FOR LOWER
The SL-36B is recommended in all applications
requiring high acoustic output, low distortion,
and cost effectiveness in a highly portable
system. This includes sound reinforcement,
music playback, cinema sound, and side-fill
To optimize performance, the SL-36B should
be arrayed in groups of two or four, and utilize
closely adjacent structural surfaces as extensions
of the horn wall to enhance low-frequency
Cerwin-Vega's dedication to product excellence routinely includes refinements in design, materials, and workmanship. This ongoing process may result in products which differ from those represented in our descriptive literature due to improvements in design, performance, or both.
