  • want to use those simply to play track. Just 2 speakers. Propose a receiver with bluetooth or wifi?
  • question: want to use these simply to play music. Just 2 audio system. Endorse a receiver with bluetooth or wifi? Answer: get one with massive amp or get a separate amp at the least two hundred wpc. I’d go for the largest amp you could afford in case you need the excellent sound. Avr recievers have a tough time powering those. They do ok on my onkyo txrz820 130wpc 2 channels pushed, but they do way higher with my 400wpc amp by using eric n.

      Noticed things weren’t sounding right so decided to look into it. Notice the front panel that holds all the speakers is separating, then took the speakers out because the box felt unbalanced, then saw 2 of the magnets were off and sitting on one side. Would not buy again, only lasted about 6 months. Read more

      How to say this? This CV center channel speaker sounds fantastic but is easily twice as large as I thought it would be. I bought it to replace a failing old Boston Acoustics cheap center channel, but seriously you’ll need a fairly large space in your AV cabinet. Or in my case, the little shelf above the TV which had had the BA speaker before is going to need some refitting before I feel totally safe with the new unit. I should’ve looked at the product dimensions; it’s 6.5″ high, 7.5″ deep, and 27.5″ long, and weighs about 20 lbs. The original shelf is holding, but I ain’t comfortable with the noticeable sag. If you have your TV on top of an AV cabinet, no, the SL45C will not fit in front of it like most standard soundbars will. I ended up ordering some Polk center speaker wall mounts and will put those up as soon as I receive them. Setting aside the “holy crap, this speaker is huger than I thought it’d be” issue, I have zero complaints about the sound. It’s crisp, has excellent range, and made my Dolby Digital/Surround/Atmos audio rendering issues go bye-bye. Sound at both high and low volume is good, too, and impressed with vocal quality. I also pipe music audio through the receiver from my computer via Airplay, and the difference is remarkable. Would I buy again? Perhaps, although obviously I might’ve gone with a smaller model.

      Very solid product from a pretty well known manufacturer of speakers. Running this as a center to my Onkyo 656 receiver, with 2 NHT 2.5 towers as my fronts. Sound is pretty “boomy” even with adjusting crossover from 40hz to full. Voices sound like they are coming out of a box, and never really reach that natural sound that I expect, like someone sitting in my living room. Most of the time, the clarity is there…especially during commercials! For the price, this is a pretty good buy, replaced my little 2 speaker KLH and definitely was a step up…but then again, I had only paid $22 for my KLH. Probably for a audio purist, this speaker would not cut it, but for the rest of us with average human hearing, they are pretty good. Just wish the voice clarity was better. Read more

      [Edited speaker layout] All I can say is wow! I have an entire 7.2.4 system and all the speakers except upward firing are Cerwin-Vegas (fronts = SL-12, surrounds = RE-16; two subs = LW-12; center = SL-45c; front/rear height = HT-S5) . These beauties replaced my older Cerwin-Vega V-10. The mid and bass is just out of this world good for the price. The tweeter is good but not on the level of the mid/bass. I put up a pint so you can get a feel of its height. Roll off is 40hz but can be set to Full as well, depending on your sub situation. [Edited entire review] [Revisit] Cerwin Vega SL-45c: Okay, after doing actual speaker testing with PC software. The biggest difference was this – TURN OFF ROOM CALIBRATION. My first post was that I was disappointed in the high end. But I have come to find out that my receiver’s software is absolute junk and makes this speaker sound terrible at the high end and I have the top of the line Onkyo RZ-3100. I turn off the AccuEQ from Onkyo and I can now hear the audio better and I can hear those small sounds that previously I could not hear. I’m unsure why this is happening with the calibration but…I just can’t use it. I also roll off these speakers off at 100HZ . I tried all kinds off roll off, from 60 (the rated is 55hz) to 120. The best sound is 100hz and relieves the deep bass from these speakers which I do not need. If you want bass, get two LFE sub-woofers. Also, the two speakers seem to cross over in this box this way from left to right (bass, mid, tweeter, mid, bass) when testing. Overall I am very satisfied with this speaker as long as the receiver’s room correction software is turned off. I also placed big 3M rubber feet under the bottom, the benefits are probably inaudible. Oh and…they seem to have a very long bake in time. They sound better as they age. Read more

      I replaced my old center channel speaker a year or so back with the CV center channel and finally upgraded the front speakers with these… wish I hadn’t waited so long. These little speakers put out so much sound and with such clarity, I had no idea how much I was missing with my old speakers. Read more
