For decades Cerwin-Vega has set the standard for bass horn technology, as exemplified in the world renowned L-36PE "Portable Earthquake"; the most successful and widely imitated bass horn on the market. Remarkably, in the new SL-36 18" bass horn, Cerwin-Vega has generated improvements which yield increased deep bass and greater power handling!
Examples of the technological improvements are:
ASYMMETRICAL SLOT LOADING: The unique exit is designed for optimum aperture. This provides uniform loading at the throat of the horn, spreading the energy across the width of the throat area for higher efficiency and more deep bass.
ALUMINUM WOOFER CHAMBER PANEL: The heatsink characteristics of the aluminum panel provides greater power handling and less power compression over the long term.
INCREASED HORN PATH LENGTH FOR LOWER CUTOFF FREQUENCY.
HIGH EXCURSION WOOFER: Utilizing a longer voice coil, the SL-36 attains useable response at 32 Hz. Moreover, improved suspension enables the woofer to cleanly handle 500 watts @ 32 Hz all day long.
The newly designed 189SE 18" driver features advanced construction and a 3", 600W (EIA) voice coil assembly. The SL-36 utilizes 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 6 square feet.
The 189SE 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 to the lowest frequency of the horn’s operation.
The SL-36 is recommended in all applications requiring high acoustic output, low distortion, and cost effectiveness in a highly portable system. This includes sound reinforcement, music play-back, cinema sound, and side-fill monitoring.
To optimize performance, the SL-36 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 output.
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.
