The LS high-end loudspeakers are American made in San Diego, CA. Each enclosure is designed, tuned, and ported using LEAP™ software and tested with LMS™ software for optimum system performance. Multi-ply Hardwood offers the strength for professional service. Professional Neutrik™ Speakon connectors, Mylar crossover capacitors and Speaker Guard HF driver protection are just part of the top quality design.
The LS2153 is designed to stand alone as a full range sound reinforcement loudspeaker and to couple with our LS1801 for a three way extended low-end system. Effective for both permanent and portable applications, it comes with handles and rubber footpads. Covered in black DuraTuff™.

The LS2153 is our smallest dual 15-inch high power enclosure that offers big stage performance. The tight footprint takes up very little room on stage and helps in packing them away. It makes a great drum monitor. The unique 3-way design uses one of the heavy duty 15-inch woofers for mid and low frequencies and the other for low frequencies only, providing cleaner mid frequencies and all the low-end punch of two 15-inch woofers. The high power extended range HF titanium driver delivers great clarity matching the woofers. The enclosure is constructed of CNC machined multi-ply Hardwood with heavy gauge steel powder coated front grills. The crossover includes 4 pin NL4 Speakon and 1/4" phone connectors mounted on FR4 double sided circuit boards for solid construction and durability. Carvin's exclusive Speaker Guard™ HF Driver protection uses a self resetting relay circuit to dim the HF driver 10 dB protecting the voice coil from excessive power. The benefits are the driver is not turned off losing all the high frequencies, the circuit resets as soon as the high frequency content is back to normal levels. Made in the USA.

"Recieved this 2x15 cabinet just in time for a outdoor fest event we had last weekend. I'm using this as a drum monitor our drummer plays electronic drums. All I saw from him thru out the show was a big GRIN. Happy Camper for sure!!! Way to go Carvin!!"

"These speakers make my life so much easier when I set up to DJ on a stage because I do not need stands. I can also leave the subwoofer home 1/2 the time because they have so much bottom end. Mids are snappy and well-defined and the high are crystal clear, but not harsh on the ear and not muddy like other dual 15's that I listened to. Even with shipping & covers, not only do the Carvin LS2153's cost $100 less than the JBL JRX125's, but they are also 22 lbs lighter!"

"These speakers really are great! I have a sound company that consists of mostly Carvin gear and I am always getting great comments about the sound from other bands. Thanks Carvin!"

"Our band has been utilizing a pair of these as our mains along with an RX1200 powered mixer since approximately February of 2010. We have had no issues other than the spacers intended to keep the grill out of contact with the speaker frames had to be reattached after a couple of sweltering summer shows. (Texas summers can be hard on any equipment) They sounded great despite being run somewhat under powered and performed well both indoor and out. Their small foot print makes them east to transport and stow and are really light in comparison to some of the older equipment we lug around. Recently acquired a new mixer and amps (Carvin of course) and have switched these two 2153's to the Bass / Drum monitor roll powered by a DCM1000L. WOW ... we just thought our stage sound was clean. Fully intend to purchase
