Call Cerwin-Vega and they should offer a "Flat-Rate" repair for it. No matter what is wrong with it, for a flat rate, they will fix it. If not, most any repair shop should be able to. If not, heck, I'LL buy it off ya! (I love Cerwin Vega stuff...)

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 .

When turning on the power on my cerwin vega 15" sub the protect light which is a built in protection on the amplifier keeps coming on the power on light does not come on at all just the protect light

The sub could be shorted or the wire connections of the sub could be shorted, or there could be an internal problem with the amplifier such as a shorted output stage or failure of some other component(s)

your amp requires a 12volt power wire from the battery, a negative wire grounded to the car body, a remote wire that connects to the radio or fuse box, rca jacks from the radio, and speaker wires from amp to speakers. hope this helps. please rate 4 thumbs up.

Hello. My ve 28s crackles when in standby mode, and also plays crackly bass. Please help me by telling me which component to replace within the amp. as I have no Cerwin Vega agent support here in South...

This "Crackling" Problem is common with the Cerwin Vega VE-28S Subwoofer. If your subwoofer is out of warranty, and you know how to solder, you can fix the problem by replacing a few resistors, and transistors inside the amplifier. Get the parts on ebay:

What is the best amplifier to use to drive the cerwin vega cls 215 speakers?

Use a "real" amp, not a receiver as your CV's need real power to perform the best. Check the following links for some choices. I use the first as it's a monster for low-end.

Remember to shop online wisely and only purchase from a authorized dealer.

Can you bridge the vega 124 or just use 1 channel on a punch 400x4

Here are the important concerns:
The power rating of the speaker(400W) should be 25% HIGHER than the maximum output of the amplifier BRIDGED. (Amp bridged output 200W - OK!)
The amplifier will get twice as warm running the speaker when loud.
The impedance of the speaker can be no less than 4 ohms when the amplifier is bridged. (Yes, this speaker is 4 ohms - OK!)
Your punch amp is capable of running TWO Cerwin Vega 124s, bridged.

Amp gets hot

Check your speakers to make sure that they are the proper Ohmic value, and make sure your grounds are secure.

The unit is dissipating too much heat which is a sign of an impedance mismatch. In other words the full power output is not being delivered to the load (speakers), rather it is being dissipated in the source (amplifier) which as said is a sign of an impedance mismatch.

Thank you,
I hope this helps
