Acoustic Energy’s bespoke 1″ soft dome tweeter was designed in tandem with the 100 Series 2 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 5.2″ bass/mid driver used in the 100 Series 2 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 2 uses a substantial 0.6″ thick high density (HDF) enclosure with carefully tuned bracing, reducing harmful resonances while retaining body and substance from compact, practical cabinets. The rear slot porting enhances smooth bass extension with minimal room impact, allowing easy placement. The AE109² and AE120² feature inert mass-loading for additional stability and acoustic damping, all models come supplied with slim magnetic grilles.

“I have seen and heard quite a few loudspeakers recently; these things tend to come in bunches, but it often works in drawing comparisons. Although other loudspeakers have been on the premium side of the price band, these Acoustic Energy 109.2 are easily keeping up with these pricier offerings. There is a presence, volume and detail in these Acoustic Energy 109.2 loudspeakers that is hard to fault at this price.” Simon Wilce HIFI and Music Source August 2022, Highly Recommended

“You already understand. The Acoustic Energy AE109 is an amazing speaker for the money! We honestly don’t quite understand how Acoustic Energy can produce this for $949 a pair. In our estimation, the Acoustic Energy AE109² could also be included in the $1300-$1500 a pair price class. They are that good. This is a loudspeaker that many enthusiasts can be very happy with… for a long time!”
“The Pale White – Sonder is rhythmically flawless and detailed
Bloodywood – Aaj gives depth and is otherwise raw, energetic and coherent as it should be
Daft Punk – Aerodynamic gives goosebumps
Deadmau5 – Avaritia turns up the volume and feels like spring has arrived and we’re going wild at a festival. It’s all so wonderfully tight and coherent.
In short: yes: the Acoustic Energy AE109-2 is an omnivore. A wonderful, affordable loudspeaker that an enthusiast will enjoy.” WOUTER KAPTEIJN, Alpha-Audio, Netherlands, March 2022

“I lived with the AE 109.2s for several weeks as my everyday speakers. Many models do not last nearly this long in my listening room, so this in itself is an accolade. So long as the price doesn’t double when Acoustic Energy read this, I think we have here the ‘bargain of the moment’ when it comes to accomplished loudspeakers; certainly, at entry-level, but almost at any level. The 109.2’s really are that good. Not only is this a design that sounds very musical, they are also speakers that keep you listening to the music, and that’s probably the key for any design.” Trevor Butler, EAR Magazine March 2022
