Acoustic Energy AE100² Bookshelf Speakers (pair)
Acoustic Energy was founded in London, England in 1987 with the creation of the now-legendary AE1 loudspeaker. The AE1 redefined what was possible from a compact enclosure by setting new audio performance standards for dynamics, power and clarity previously unheard of outside larger, high-end speakers. These design principals have remained enshrined in the company ethos to this day…

Acoustic Energy AE100² Bookshelf Speaker (pair)
The latest adaptation of Acoustic Energy’s globally acclaimed 100 Series features an all-new, innovative design from the ground up…
The new 100 Series introduces a plethora of evolutionary improvements focused on refining the listening experience. All models (aside from AE108² Subwoofer) feature our WDT (Wide Dispersion Tweeter) waveguide for improved dispersion, now taking cues from our 500 Series with mid/bass drivers moved closer to the tweeter. The drive units are all-new and designed in tandem to offer seamless integration along with improved response and power handling. Slot ports to the rear of each cabinet reduce chuffing & distortion, thanks to a new tooled vent to further smooth airflow. Finally, as a first at this price point, the 100 Series uses HDF (High Density Fibreboard) construction to allow thinner cabinet walls with no loss in mass or stiffness – the result is larger internal volume providing deeper bass response for minimal external size increase.
This elegant, compact yet powerful range of speakers embodies all the qualities Acoustic Energy is renowned for, while taking advantage of everything we’ve learned in our continuous journey of development.
The AE100² is a compact stand-mount/bookshelf loudspeaker exhibiting qualities perfectly embodying those of Acoustic Energy.
The AE100² 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 AE100² is sure to look good placed on speaker stands or bookshelves, while delivering a sound that belies its compact size.
