Acoustic Energy Limited was founded in 1987 and originally based in West London before relocating to its current 15,000 square foot facility in the Cotswolds. In 1988 the AE1 was launched and originally designed to satisfy the needs of the professional audio sector of the market, offering great accuracy, precise stereo imaging, dynamics, and transparency coupled with high power handling and linearity. Due to these product benefits, the AE1 acquired a global reputation with musicians, recording artists and studio engineers.

Subsequently the AE1 won the British Hi-Fi Award for Best Speaker in 1991 and 1992, and acclaim for the Reference Series within the hi-fi press grew world-wide. The hi-fi market rapidly became an integral part of Acoustic Energy’s growth.

Thanks to this renowned product, AE has grown from strength to strength around the world and now distributes to over 50 export markets, in addition to a strong multiple and independent distribution base within our domestic market.

  • AE100 The AE100 is a new compact standmount / bookshelf loudspeaker that exhibits qualities which perfectly embody those of Acoustic Energy. 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. Technical Specifications Drive Unit: 4″ paper cone Tweeter: 1″ dome Frequency Range: 45Hz -35kHz Sensitivity: 87dB Peak SBL: 110dB Power Handling: 75w Crossover Frequency: 3.6kHz Impedance: 4ohms Design: 2 way Finishes: Satin Black and Walnut vinyl veneer Dimensions: 270 x 160 x 240 (HxWxD)

  • Aego Sound3ar

    Flat screen TVs have become ever thinner and more elegant in recent years and while this makes for an aesthetically appealing product, it means that the space available within the chassis for speakers has become more and more compressed. As a result, many modern TVs can’t produce the sound to match their picture.

    To provide a solution to this Acoustic Energy has taken the subwoofer unit of the Aego³ and created an all new soundbar speaker array to partner it. Designed to effortlessly compliment modern flat screens and equipped for wall mounting, it is capable of providing a sound that does justice to everything from broadcast TV to the latest cinematic blockbusters. By using the separate bass and amplifier module, we have ensured that the Aego Soundbar is as elegant as the equipment you will be partnering it with, while delivering the level of performance that you would expect from an Acoustic Energy product.

  • The new AE109 is designed to offer effortless, room filling performance from a slimline floorstanding loudspeaker in much the same way the world acclaimed original AE109 did 20 years ago.

  • Reference 1 The Reference 1 was launched in 2011 incorporating all our technological expertise in speaker design. With the Reference Series we’ve sought to improve upon every aspect of current speaker design to create a true, balanced, dynamic, wide-bandwidth and minimal colouration loudspeaker. Cabinet: Constrained laminate layer construction for maximum resonance damping. A specially designed 7mm MDF/3mm high density rubber/5mm MDF sandwich material is used throughout the cabinet enclosure to minimise resonance and external cabinet noise. Bass Driver: Huge underhung motor assembly for maximum linear accuracy and control. The motor system comprising twin-wound aluminium voice-coils is thermally bonded to the aluminium cone for absolute minimum distortion and long-throw pistonic accuracy. Tweeter: The now well-established Vifa Ring-radiator tweeter is used here in our own custom, upgraded specification. Coupled to our DXT® Lens assembly for improved in-room response and dispersion matching to the bass driver, this is one of the finest tweeters in use today. These features wrapped into a compact, elegant design and luxuriously finished with real piano ebony lacquer mark the new Reference Series as the pinnacle of current small loudspeaker design. Technical Specifications Bass/Mid Driver: 110mm underhung magnet, twin voice coil assembly Crossover: Ultra short signal path 2nd order crossover at 2khz Frequency response: 45Hz – 40kHz @ +/-3dB Power handling: Amplifiers rated up to 200 watts into 8 Ohms Sensitivity: 87db for 2.83V at 1m Nominal impedance: 6 Ohms Total harmonic distortion: Less than 0.3% 200Hz to 20kHz Dimensions: 310 x 190 x 280mm (HxWxD) Weight: 10.5kg (single, unpacked) Finish: Piano ebony or piano black
