SOURCE: Cerwin Vega V-35 Horns Drivers Model TMH-1

first you need a multimeter set to OHM , check on the back of the horn , remove the leads and do some reading , it should read 4 , 8 , 16 ohms depending of the brand , if you get no reading its means that need to be replaced , some horns you can detach the back (magnet w/the coil ) so you can replace it without buying the whole unit . good luck

SOURCE: i have a set of cerwin vega ls-12 3way woofer works but tweeters

There is an old cheap way to test any speaker. If you have a multi-meter, set it on OHMS. Then, while holding one lead against one speaker terminal, tap the other meter lead to the other speaker terminal. If the speaker is good, you will hear faint crackles. If you do not have a meter do not despair, you can do the same test using an AA or AAA battery with leads held to the battery.
Good luck! P.S. Nice speakers.

SOURCE: I need fuses for my cerwin vega re 38 speakers

Should be 2.5 amp SLOW BLOW fuses. Not at home, but mine have a label near the fuse holder showing 2.5. Important to get the slow blow. I get mine at Radio Shack in a multipack (amp underwpowered, blow them often)

SOURCE: Cerwin Vega SUB8...how do I connect

grady66,
We will start with the easy one, Phase. The phase selector is a setting that can be adjusted by sound; which one sounds better? Either one will work fine. It's mainly for situations where the sub enclosure is located at a distance or behind the listening area. The 'in and out' crossover selector and the input from the receiver goes together. The 'in and out' crossover selector is asking if you want to use the internal crossover to block the bass from getting to the satellite speakers. Most home surround sound receivers only have the one sub out and most subs have both left and right inputs. When there is a single signal being fed to the sub you use the subs left input or buy a splitter and send the signal into both left and right, but either way will work equally the same.

There is two ways to connect the speakers to the receiver.

1) Cross-over 'In': you connect the output speaker wires from the receiver to the speaker inputs on the sub and the speaker outputs on the sub to the satellite speakers; the sub will get its sound from the input speaker wires.

2) Cross-over 'Out': you connect the sub to the receiver using the receiver's single sub out, then connect the satellite speakers directly to the receiver's speakers outputs; in this configuration the satellite speakers are given a full range of signal including the bass.

I have used #2 with the same system and had great results.

-Chris

I want to replace the capacitors on my Cerwin vega D5 speakers but have never done it before. I could help with parts and procedures. Thank you for your time, Rob


Well it is not an easy task to tweak crossover.If you just change capacitors,it could bring some advantages put probably will bring in the same time more unpleasant sound.If the old capacitor is MKT one then the new one should be MKT as well - if not you might get some frequences very loud and so unpleasant sound.MKP capacitoprs have very low resistance but mind the fact that the whole crossover was projected to use MKT capacitors.The same is for bas area - change electrolityc c with the same type but of good quolity - Mundorf maybe

Definitely the crossover. Follow the wiring back to see where it connects and see what is on the board.

Replacement woofers for Cerwin Vega HED 3way 12. Can I use woofers from the LS Series?


Absolutely, as long as they are the same impedance.
If you are unsure, use an ohmmeter to check the static impedance of the replacement speakers, and be sure that it is with in 2-3 ohms of the listed impedance of the speakers you are replacing (otherwise, your crossover points will be wrong).

Where can i find an amplifier for a cerwin vega hts 12a


Subwoofer Plate Amplifiers

What you need is a plate amplifier. You'll get more bang for the buck by using an after market one. They are simple to replace. Dayton is a popular brand. They use an active variable crossover .

I am interested in disabling my Cerwin Vega XLS-215 tweeter protection switch. I am well aware of the ramifications of this modification. Is it in the crossover circuit and if so could you tell me how to...


http://www.cerwin-vega-fans.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1611

If you have a look at the above link, there are pictures of the crossover as well as the schematic for the crossover.
you will see in the second photo there are two yellow discs attached to the circuit board. you just need to remove these discs which are PTC Polyswitches, and replace both of these with wire links.

I own a CERWIN-VEGA V-12S 12" Front Firing V


You may have only messed up the crossover circuit. Try changing the crossover frequency and see if hte behavior changes. If so, then the parts cost should be minimal. If the behaviorr remains the same, there will need to be more investigation done internally. This is not a problem that is likely to be easily resolved remotely. Can you update this with your location? I may be able to provide a recommendation for a service shop.

No sound coming out of speakers on my cerwin vega


spurdoggg,
It will be easy to pin point the problem. If your satellite speakers have been connect through the sub's in and output speaker connectors, disconnect them and connect them directly to the source of sound. If the speakers work its the crossover inside the sub enclosure. If the speakers do not work the speakers are blown.
