The short answer is yes, but the cabinet won't sound or perform the same. Depending upon where you are located, the speaker can be reconed for less than a replacement driver and return the unit to new. Check out that option. If you would like a recommendation, please indicate your location and I'll provide a referral if I know one in your area.

First you cannot run 2 dvc 4 ohms at 2 ohms its either 1 ohm or 4 ohm. and yes you should bridge them better performance and power. i have looked it up for you and this is your 2 options at running your subs.

Anyone know where I can find a replacement woofer for a Cerwin Vega HT-S12A? It is a 12 inch woofer...The cabinet and amp are in great shape however a stupid kid came over and cranked the sub and seems to...


  • Sounds like the speaker coil to me.
  • Yours is a a 150 watt, 12" subwoofer. If I were you I would not knock my head on the table looking for a Cerwin Vega to put into there. You can a far better quality one for a reasonable price. This Pioneer here.

  • I don't see that Amp blowing this speaker and it averages about $75. Just turn the box on it's side and remove the screws holding the speaker in place. Drop the speaker. Remove connectors and revers to finis the job.

I have a pair of Cerwin Vega LS 15-series home speakers. One of the subs stopped working but still has sound coming out of the voice coil. Do i need to replace the sub?


You need to check the connections on the cross over board and also Ohm out the speaker to see if the voice coil is open. If you cannot get the same woofer, then you should replace them in pair, try http://www.parts-express.com//index.cfm?

I have a set of cerwin vega AT15's my dog decided to put his paw through the one surround and puntured the paper cone I need total 15" woofer replacements or repair. or I need replacements I can buy and...


Ebay sell Cerwin Vega Surround (rubber bit) replacements. If he has ripped the cone too, appart from replacing his back legs with wheels (joke!), contact Cerwin Vega directly and they will send you out a new "driver". These are easily fitted at home by any one with a screwdriver

How many ohms? 6 ? 8 ?


David,
The AT line were all rated at 3.2 ohms. Any amp or receiver rated to handle 4 ohms loads will work. The fuses and tweeter breakers are sensitive to clipping so most low cost amp's and just about every receiver will cause undue clipping. CV stated that increasing the fuse a half amp would increase the time before blowing the fuse or breaker but that will only cause additional harm to the voice coil.

Same thing is happening to my Cerwin Vega 18" sub. Can't find solution at all. Guess I will have to buy a new sub.

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

Dual voice coil wiring to class d amp


The easiest way to think of wiring voice coils and subs is this:
  • Two items of the same impedance in parallel = Half of the impedance
    • 4 ohms in parallel with 4 ohms = 2 ohms
    • 8 ohms in parallel with 8 ohms = 4 ohms
  • Two items of the same impedance in series = Double the impedance
    • 4 ohms in series with 4 ohms = 8 ohms
    • 8 ohms in series with 8 ohms = 16 ohms
In this case, you want to wire two subs, each with dual 4 ohms voice coils, so that the total equals 2 ohms. Your options are:
  • DVCs in parallel, 2 subs in series = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in series, 2 subs in parallel = 4 ohms
  • DVCs in parallel, 1 sub = 2 ohms
With two, dual 4 ohm subs, you can only have 1 ohm or 4 ohm total impedance.
