The Cerwin-Vega CV-5000 Professional Power Amplifier is designed for live sound reinforcement applications. The 3RU Class H amplifier is optimized to match Cerwin-Vega's largest and loudest folded horns and speakers, including the TS-42 Folded Horn Sub. The unit is rated 1100W per channel at 8O, 1800W per channel at 4O, 2500W per channel at 2O, 3600W in bridge mono mode at 8O and 5000W in bridge mono mode at 4O. It has a frequency response of 5 to 50,000 Hz and a signal to noise ratio of < -100 dB from 20 to 20,000 Hz.
For cooling, the amplifier uses a high-efficiency variable-speed fan tunnel cooling system and includes an LED monitoring system to indicate when the signal is active, at -20 dB, at -10 dB, at 0 dB, is clipping, or triggering the protection circuit. For protection the unit features short circuit, thermal, current limit, DC offset, current inrush, RF protection, turn on, turn off, and mute functions.
The front panel includes a 21-detent potentiometer for each channel. The back panel includes a switch for selecting parallel, stereo, or bridged mono mode as well as a high pass filter switch on each channel and a limiter switch on each channel. For I/O, the back panel includes electronically balanced 1/4" and XLR combo jacks with input link jacks for connecting to other amplifiers. For outputs the unit features both 5-way binding posts and Speakon connectors.
2-channel, parallel or bridged mono operating modes for flexible application - 5000W
Independent limiters for each channel reduce distortion
Independent input level controls for each channel allow precision adjustments
Precise signal and clip LED indicators to monitor performance, allow you to correct for overloading (clipping) condition
Low-frequency filters (30 or 50 Hz) remove rumble and subsonic frequency
Twin-tunnel and 2 temperature sensitivity forced air cooling system to maintain a low, temperature working condition
Balanced XLR or balanced ¼" TRS Combination input connector for each channel and LINK ports
5-way output binding posts or speaker connectors enable secure operation
High-current toroidal transformer for absolute reliability
Independent DC and thermal overload protection on each channel automatically protects amplifier and speaker
