We are authorised agents for Acoustic Energy so you can be assured of a fantastic product, backed by exceptional customer care.
Acoustic Energy has been producing world class loudspeakers for over thirty years. Born from the demands of the recording studio, their speakers are designed to combine accuracy, excitement and user friendliness, bringing our vast experience to every product we produce. They have also garnered many accolades and awards from the world’s press in recognition of their speaker systems’ ultimate performance, technology, build quality and value.
True to their principles, Acoustic Energy remain a British based Hi-Fi manufacturer, and from their headquarters in the Cotswolds England, Acoustic Energy is leading the way in meeting the ever-changing requirements of consumer audio, to maintain their position as one of the UK’s leading loudspeaker manufacturers.
Acoustic Energy is proud to announce the launch of the all-new AE100 Series. The original AE109 was launched in 1996 and achieved worldwide acclaim from dealers and press alike due to its performance, high build quality and value, setting industry standards in the entry-level hi-fi speaker category. Now 20 years on, AE aims to reclaim the mantle with their new and improved version of this audio icon. Developed entirely at AE’s Cirencester HQ, the new 100 Series is the first range launched under the company’s newly re-taken British ownership and during its 30th Anniversary year.
Given the demanding requirements that led to the creation of the original 1 Series, it may sound surprising that AE have been able to obtain even higher performance from more compact enclosures at more affordable prices… The AE100 Series is physical proof this is possible.
The new 100 Series introduces a number of improvements and evolutionary changes all focused on refining the listening experience at the same time as providing a more room friendly loudspeaker. AE have introduced their WDT tweeter assembly from the legendary AE1 Active, which creates far better in-room dispersion, as well as locating our slot ports to the rear for less midrange coloration and improved bass response.
The external design has also been improved for a more elegant, slim-line appearance and smaller footprint for easy integration within any home environment. Produced to the highest build quality standards for an entry level range, the 100 Series is available in attractive satin black and walnut vinyl veneer options with neat magnetic grilles for optimum visual appeal.
The result is a stylish and more powerful range of speakers that embodies all of the qualities that Acoustic Energy is renowned for while taking advantage of everything that we have learned in our continuous process of development.
The AE100 has been designed with a view to achieving high sound pressure levels from an extremely small enclosure. This is obtained principally through the use of a 4 inch mid-bass drive unit built around an ultra high force, long throw motor system. Bass performance is augmented by a slot shaped duct allowing for a considerable cross sectional area while negating the issues of air turbulence.
A 28mm soft dome tweeter featuring our Wide Dispersion Technology completes the driver compliment, that’s housed within an 18mm MDF cabinet. Taking design cues from the award winning Reference Series and finished in a choice of satin black or walnut vinyl veneer finishes, the AE100 is sure to look good wherever you choose to place it while delivering a sound that belies its compact size.
