Wow is all I can say. I am an old AudioPhile junkie and have owned lots of different systems. Back in the mid-80's I owned a pair of D-15EE's. Got older and reduced in size. Damn near forgot how good size mattered. I had to pull out my old American made PCR-800 Soundcraftsmen Amp to bring these E-715's to life. Knocked pictures off the wall!! These speakers produce absolutely beautiful sound, for as long as you have quality drivers. Got mine from the pawn shop for $199.00. These are backed up by Bose 301's in every corner and Bose center speaker. Very mind blowing realistic sound when combined. My receiver has buses for every speaker output; connected PCR-800 to front speaker section for 205 watt/channel. Said "bye-bye to sub-woofers" for life!!!!

Bottom Line:   
As an owner of the AT-15 the grand daddy to these E-715s, they had some big shoes to fill. Having only one mid driver set them back a bit compared to the AT-15 but the AT-15 was built in 1977 and the E-715 was much more efficient overall. I got higher volume from them than I got from the AT-15 at the same volume setting and the E-715 cabinets had less audible bass overshoot and midrange ring. The control range on the crossover adjustments seemed narrow to me but I was still able to set these big boyz up nicely in my 7.1 sysrtem. As residential Cerwin Vegas go on a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give these an 8.5. I still long for the dual midrange drivers and I wish there were discrete fuses or circuit breakers on the back panel for all the drivers like there used to be. If you wanted bigger, tighter sound at this price point you'd have to buy something in the pro equipment line of Gemini or Mackie Eon. The E-715s definitely do the job.

Cerwin Vegas are the best speakers on the face of the world! No others can touch the deep, clear bass, the perfect mid ranges and the bell crisp tweeters. And they LOOK dang good with that heavy black ash wood enclosures. For my money these are the speakers to have for serious music fans. IMO anyway, what's yours?

This speaker is classic Cerwin Vega quality. If you want a serious party speaker that can rock the house for hours yet is still versatile enough to sound great without being played at deafening levels, this is what you are looking for. These speakers are rated at 400 watts RMS with a frequency response of 26Hz-20kHz and a sensitivity of 102 dB @ 2.83V, which is quite impressive for a "house" speaker considering these specs rival some "professional" setups. The main strength of this speaker is its tremendous low frequency bass response, which in my opinion surpasses ANY other speaker in this class. Articulate deep and punchy is the best way to describe it. The midrange however is slightly less impressive, lacking detail and VOLUME, almost to the point of sounding muffled, i mean c'mmon cerwin vega, a 5.25" midrange in a box this size, wtf were they thinking!? The tweeter isn't bad though, coming through with clean clear response, and high output. It can be a bit screechy however and loses depth of sound (espeically with electric guitar). Another thing to be considered is the fact that these speakers need a LOT of power to be truly appreciated. Driving them at moderate volumes with a typical 100W stereo/surround sound receiver is fine, but if you really want to open them up to appreciate their full potential i recommend getting a dedicated power amplifier with a separate pre amp as they put a huge load on these lower power receivers at high volumes, causing them to distort which could severely damage the speakers. Basically it is more damaging to these speakers to UNDERPOWER them than to OVERPOWER them. I wouldn't classify these speakers as "audiophile" speakers in terms of the refinement and sound stage, and if you are looking for speakers that do not "color" the sound to play classical music and music with emphasis on vocals look elsewhere. That said, i certainly don't knock the guys who buy this speaker...YOU KNOW HOW TO ROCK i mean 400W RMS @ 102 dB = put away the fine china and if you are looking for a quality, versatile speaker with a powerful low end these speakers are a great choice... just my two cents worth, enjoy the gear!
