Acoustic Energy’s bespoke 1″ 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 5.2″ 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 substantial .06″ thick high density (HDF) enclosures 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 -loading for additional stability and acoustic damping, all models come supplied with slim magnetic grilles.

AVForums, Ed Selley, July 2022 –
The AE120² ($1499 including free shipping in the USA) delivers on the virtues of an affordable floorstander without breaking sweat. What’s more impressive is how it also manages to compete with smaller but more sophisticated speakers across their virtues too. This is a fine speaker that deserves to win many new converts to Acoustic Energy. Effortless scale and weight with good cohesion, impressively sensitive, well made and attractive.
