The Cerwin Vega JE36C Folded Horn Junior Earthquake PA Subwoofer is the latest edition of the Junior Earthquake folded horn subwoofer system and provides extreme value in a compact design. However, there is nothing junior about this subwoofer. A new cabinet design provides increased SPL and low frequency performance suitable for mobile DJs and club applications.
A striking die cast door has improved heat dissipation capabilities. The curved horn mouth bracing provides a smoother frequency response. Front corner bracing and a reinforced pole cup (almost twice as deep as the previous version) offer extra durability.
Folded Horn Technology
Cerwin-Vega’s latest folded horn subwoofer systems utilize an incredibly efficient folded hyperbolic horn design. This enables the enclosure to contain a longer sound path which amplifies the bass frequencies while keeping the enclosure compact in size for portability. The path length and flare rate delivers bone crushing low-end down to 30Hz.
The design of practical, portable bass horns has always challenged audio engineers because low frequency wavelengths are so large (e.g., 22.5 ft/6.9 m at 50 Hz) that they require a long horn. The challenge to reduce the horn’s dimensions without decreasing its length results in a technique that involves folding the horn. This technique collapses the physical dimensions of the horn without reducing its length by physically folding the horn within a cabinet.
The Cerwin-Vega! folded horns have been acoustically optimized to achieve high output and low distortion while maintaining clarity and impact. Special attention to rear chamber, throat geometry, and horn profile results in a folded horn design that doesn’t exhibit the typical horn coloration of competing products.
Cerwin-Vega! folded horns, on average, produce 6 dB more output at 1 watt than a dual 18 inch vented box. This result is four times the output with half the number of drivers. Purchase costs are drastically reduced due to the need for fewer cabinets. A smaller number of cabinets is able to deliver a superior level of clean clear bass. Powering far fewer cabinets yields large cost savings in amplification. The net result is loud sub bass that moves enough air to blow the hairpiece off the competition.
Of course, the C-Series folded horn systems have integrated wheels and a new Cerwin-Vega! ergonomic handle for easier transportability. The ergonomic design allows the
Series to be moved by a single person.
