Acoustic Energy AE100 Bookshelf speakers .... smooth and articulate with depth

This is in a deeply competitive market position. There are already giants of value from English designers producing compact bookshelf two designs that retail for the $5-600 area so what can this possibly bring to the table against the likes of Monitor Audio and Q Acoustics? As it happens this has a unique and seductive tonality that is markedly different from those others and will appeal to people who love a sweet treble character.
Where so much Hi Fi has a sharp and aggravated treble to try and force feed a quick purchase on a potential buyer the AE100 proffers an unusually mature and refined character that reminds one of the likes of much more expensive Rogers and Harbeths of yore. This is a very gentlemanly loudspeaker but it can also go properly loud way beyond its physical stature when pushed with an appropriate amplifier. A genuine contender and a new store favourite at the price point.

Product Description


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 25mm soft dome tweeter featuring Acoustic Energy's 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, walnut vinyl veneer or limited edition satin white finishes, the AE100 is sure to look good wherever you choose to place it while delivering a sound that belies its compact size.
