Cerwin Vega XD3
Cerwin-Vega announces the new XD3 Powered Desktop Speaker.
Initially available in June at U.S.-based Best Buy retail and online outlets, the XD3 features self-powered cabinets in a Master/Slave configuration with 15-watt amplifiers. The integrated 3-inch woofer and ¾-inch tweeter are fed via passive crossovers so that the proper frequencies are represented in each driver for a smooth transition from mid range to high frequency, the company says.
The XD3 cabinets are 8" x 5.5" x 6.5" (203 mm x 140 mm x 165 mm) in size. Each cabinet is made from wood and the cabinets are magnetically shielded for speaker placement options near computer monitors. The XD3 was also designed to be a desktop media device by offering various external inputs. To this end, a 1/8-inch stereo Auxiliary input has been provided to interface with other portable and personal platforms such as MP3 players, smartphones and other media sources. This additional input source is designed to reduce the need for additional outboard speakers. A headphone jack allows users to “keep it down” while maintaining control through the front panel volume adjustments
Each cabinet weighs 6.5 lbs (2.9 kgs).
