”If you’re looking for active speakers, you owe it to yourself to audition these.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 award winner.

Legendary speakers – made active

Famous for their sound for over three decades, the AE1s are truly legendary speakers. Now available in active form, you’re not only saving space but also guaranteed amps that are perfectly matched to the speakers.

Hear the sound – precisely as it should be
Pioneering metal cone technology has meant these speakers did, and still do, sound incredibly precise and neutral. Dynamic and low in distortion, these speakers let you hear every last drop of detail – just as the artist intended.

Smooth, Class A/B amp
Each speaker is fitted with a dedicated, 50-watt Class A/B amplifier. This gives perfect balance and soundstaging between the speakers. The powerful amps also mean that room-filling, party pumping volumes are easy to achieve – even from these compact speakers. Individual bass and treble controls let you trim the sound to suit.

Studio compatible
Acoustic Energy’s studio heritage makes these speakers just as happy in a small studio as a home environment. Featuring pro-standard XLR balanced inputs and typically precise sound quality, the AE1 Active speakers make ideal monitors in small or travel studios.

Choice of luxury finishes
Available in Piano gloss black, white or real cherry wood veneer, the AE1 Active speakers look every bit as good as they sound. Slim profile, magnetically attached grilles are also included for a more discreet style.

For home or home studio, the Acoustic Energy AE1 Active speakers are simply the best active speakers in their class.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity and bass in a bookshelf speaker After listening to various different bookshelf speakers, including Kef LS50s and Q Acoustics Concept 20s, I decided they were all lacking bass. Sure they aren’t going to have the bass of floor standing speakers but I was expecting a little more. I then tried a pair of AE1s - instantly I knew these were the ones. Clear, bass where required and great build quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At last, affordable, good active speakers! I auditioned these in store two weeks ago and knew immediately I had to buy them. I already had a good passive system but the difference is chalk and cheese. They are so smooth and give so much detail to my classical SACDs. My old amplifier has a preamp output so I only had to buy a couple of new phono cables. Do it - you know you have to!
