The new 100 Series introduces a plethora of evolutionary improvements focused on refining the listening experience. This elegant, compact yet powerful range of loudspeakers embodies all the qualities Acoustic Energy is renowned for, while taking advantage of everything we’ve learned in our continuous journey of development.
Acoustic Energy’s bespoke 25mm soft dome tweeter was designed in tandem with the 100 Series bass driver to offer optimum integration and tonal matching. Paired with our Wide Dispersion Technology waveguide, the crossover region between drive units is audibly seamless whilst the high-power neodymium motor assembly ensures reliable, distortion-free high-volume playback.
The 130mm bass/mid driver used in the 100 Series has been developed with a high power, long excursion motor to provide satisfying volume levels and bass extension from relatively compact enclosures. The doped paper cone enables a higher crossover point for smoother mid- range and seamless crossover with the tweeter, creating extremely high fidelity, detailed and above all musical sound reproduction.
The 100 Series uses thin, 15mm high density (HDF) enclosures with carefully tuned bracing, reducing harmful resonances whilst retaining body and substance from compact, practical cabinets. The rear slot porting* enhances smooth bass extension with minimal room impact, allowing easy placement.
From the components to the crossover cup… it’s all new!
The new 100 Series offers a more mature, refined and bigger sound with greater extension and power.
The AE100-2 is a compact standmount / bookshelf loudspeaker that exhibits qualities which perfectly embody those of Acoustic Energy.
The AE100-2 has been designed with a view to achieving high sound pressure levels from a small enclosure.
This is obtained principally through the use of a 130mm 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 our Wide Dispersion Technology completes the driver compliment and is housed within a 15mm HDF cabinet.
Taking design cues from the award- winning 500 Series and finished in a choice of satin white, black or walnut vinyl veneer finishes.
The AE100-2 is sure to look good placed on speaker stands or bookshelves, while delivering a sound that belies its compact size.
