Cerwin-Vega XD-3 Overview

  • 1Description

The Cerwin Vega XD3 - 3" Active Desktop Monitor System (Pair) is designed for listening to music, computer gaming, and media production. The speakers utilize a built-in 30 W plate amplifier (with 15 W for each channel) to power a 3/4" soft silk-dome high frequency tweeter and a 3" low frequency woofer in a custom designed rear port wooden enclosure to deliver a frequency response of 88 to 21,000 Hz. A rear-panel bass boost switch enhances the low frequency response. An illuminated volume knob allows you to control the overall output level.

For I/O, the speaker features a front panel 1/8" input as well as an 1/8" headphone jack. The rear panel features an RCA input pair, and a speaker port for connecting the other speaker. The unit comes with an 1/8" stereo to RCA cable as well as the necessary speaker cable for connecting the pair.

    Cerwin-Vega XD-3 Reviews

    XD3 - 3- Active Desktop Monitor System (Pair) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised I produce radio and television commercials and have limited space for my editing facility. I had been using two very large and very old Bose speakers and a twenty-year-old power amp. I replaced them with these two new speakers and am pleasantly surprised at how good they are. For the price of a couple of high-end computer speakers, I now have professional speakers with a clean, flat sound that duplicates what I hear on TV and radio when my product is finished. I am really impressed with the flat (with the base on off) response and the potential loudness of these self-powered speakers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional! These PC external speakers are off the charts. For the price, I don't think they can be beat. Their sound is better than many speakers I have tried that are several times as expensive!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I have these speakers connected to my MacBook Pro laptop, which coincidently I also bought from here. Now if you were to look at the specs, you may not be blown away, but when got them hooked up, the volume and bass are far more than adequate for a home laptop system. I was pleasantly surprised at the value I received for the price. There is an on/off switch in the back for bass boost, but I find that I don't need to use it. The sound is fine as is. I use these to listen to my iTunes songs, and it sounds just as if it were coming from a stereo radio. It sounds polished, and I believe that one my not be able to blow these speakers. They have solid wood walls, so you won't hear vibrating speakers as I did with the hard plastic casing of my older system. I have only had to leave the speaker volume dial half-way and control the volume from my laptop and from iTunes. This is truly all the volume you will need to get excellent sound. So far as mid-range or other freequencies as concerned, I am not that much of an audiophile to be able to give you a definitve answer. As far as the cons, I can't think of any. I can tell you that I showed the speaker system off to a friend, and she is going to be buying a pair of these two, and she's not easily impressed. If you purchase these speakers, you will not be disappointed.
