Cerwin-Vega! Announces XD Desktop Speaker Series Expansion At The 2014 NAMM Show

Bookmark and Share

ANAHEIM, JANUARY 23, 2014 — Cerwin-Vega!, a Gibson Brand, is pleased to present the expansion of its popular XD Desktop Speaker Series at the 2014 NAMM Show (TASCAM Booth 6491). Unveiled recently at CES, the new four-inch XD4 and five-inch XD5 full range systems and eight-inch XD8 powered subwoofer join the company’s existing XD3 Powered Desktop Speaker. In keeping with the tradition of Cerwin-Vega! products, key design elements of the series include optimized frequency response, overall clarity, low distortion and the company’s trademark bass performance.

Each XD Series member is matched with low distortion, high output amplifiers and soft-dome tweeters for the best possible sound. Equipped with metal covers, the XD3 and XD4 feature 3/4-inch tweeters while the XD5 utilizes a one-inch tweeter. The XD8 sub offers deep bass extension, allowing each system to go to a new level of performance. Unlike other desktop speaker systems, the Cerwin-Vega! XD Series is built with solid MDF wood enclosures, allowing it to deliver the same quality of sound as home speaker systems.

“When setting out to create the Cerwin-Vega! XD Series, our engineers made it their goal to deliver optimal sound reproduction in a compact system,” says Gus Jursch, Director of Operations for Gibson Pro Audio. “Since versatility is the ultimate sign of a great desktop speaker, our designers also worked to ensure that the entire XD Series fully integrates with existing desktop equipment such as audio interfaces, audio mixers or DJ gear.”

The Cerwin-Vega! XD Series speakers are equipped with several front and rear inputs, including an 1/8-inch TRS, RCA pair and 1/4-inch TRS pair inputs, as well as a front panel 1/8-inch TRS headphone jack. Additionally, the speakers feature an optimally designed bass port for proper low frequency phase alignment and minimal turbulence. Also included is Cerwin-Vega!’s signature Vega-Bass Boost Switch, which enables an enhanced bass EQ.

The efficient XD8 Subwoofer offers an extended bass response, high SPL and an optimally designed port for proper low frequency phase alignment and minimal turbulence. In addition to the standard audio input and outputs, a volume knob, crossover switch and polarity switch can be found at the rear of the sub for aligning its audio to the desktop monitors. A System Remote connection port is also on the sub for use with the included XD8 Remote Control, which allows for easy volume control of the entire system. Featuring a Volume knob and Mute/Bypass switch, it is also outfitted with an audio input jack.
