Originally founded in 1954 by Gene Czerwinski, a brilliant aerospace engineer, the brand has built a legacy of high performance breakthroughs spanning more than half a century.The same motto “Disturbing the Peace for over 50 Years” still applies, and the brand’s legacy for high performance lives on with the new Stroker series of woofers.
The Stroker woofers are built with an all-new die-cast aluminum basket that incorporates an elevated motor design to optimize excursion and cooling of the voice coil. To ensure adequate linear suspension travel and mechanical reliability, the Stroker woofer has an oversized foam rubber surround and dual, mirror image Nomex spiders. Also, in the interest of reliability, the tinsel leads from the speaker’s terminals to the dual coils are woven into the spider to eliminate the chance of lead slap or damage from over excursion. Electrical connections are made with spring-loaded chrome terminals that are clearly marked for polarity, and will accept up to eight-gauge wire.
Magnetic energy comes from an oversized double-stacked set of high-gauss ferrite magnets. The magnetic energy gets focused by a one-piece cold forged alloy yoke that drives a hand-wound, three-inch, four-layer copper voice coil that is treated with a special high-temperature coating. Drawing from the wealth of experience the company has in building high power handling woofers, the Stroker also uses an aluminum former for maximum heat dissipation.
Speaking of getting rid of heat, the design of the basket provides a great deal of ventilation via large windows in the basket, as well as a fully vented pole piece. The cone of the Stroker woofer is formed from a semi-pressed pulp paper material, selected for is light weight, good rigidity and sound quality. The cone is capped off with a flat aluminum dustcap. All of this is assembled, measured and optimized using the industry’s highest standards with a Klippel DA measurement system. The result is a woofer that provides exemplary performance in a vented application.
Cerwin-Vega car audio stroker pro classic subwoofers are designed and built to achieve high-performance that have serious sound and make your room rock.
