Tracing its lineage back to the original AE1, the AE300 uses the latest generation of our 5.2″ (130mm) mid-bass drive unit. Featuring a brand new ceramic aluminium sandwich cone with an ultra-shallow profile and ultra-high force, long throw motor system, this new driver boasts improved dispersion, extended bass slam and improved overall power handling over the last generation, able to handle the hi res audio dynamic range found in today’s best content.

A new 1.1″ (28mm) aluminium dome tweeter has been developed for the 300 Series which offers high power handling and a low fundamental resonance to reduce distortion. However, the main benefit to this new design is the excellent dispersion characteristics thanks to our Wide Dispersion Technology waveguides. The waveguides shape the acoustic output of the tweeter to match the woofer and provide a wider sweet-spot in your listening environment.

The inert .71″ (18mm) thick high density MDF cabinet utilizes proprietary bracing technology derived from the award-winning Reference Series, to reduce cabinet colouration and allow the new transducers to breath freely within the listening environment. The slot shaped duct port on the rear of the speaker augments the bass output and has been carefully developed to reduce the effect of air turbulence with a clean undistorted bass performance.

The result is an audio product with clean, uncluttered lines delivering a thrilling and powerful presentation discerning Acoustic Energy owners have come to expect for over 30 years.

Finished in a choice of Piano gloss black, white or satin real walnut wood veneer finishes, the AE300 will easily integrate within any home décor placed on speaker stands or bookshelves.

  1. Michel van Meersbergen, Dutch AV magazine, July 2018

    “The AE300 is a very nice compact speaker that sounds bigger than the format makes you think. At times even with a kick that you would expect with floor-standers and that’s quite an achievement.” Michel van Meersbergen, Dutch AV magazine, July 2018

  2. AV Test Poland, July 2018

    “The AE300 is really competent in every single field. In this price category, there are a lot of speakers that pretend to be the best, but realistically, everyone has some disadvantages. It would seem, that this applies to all columns but flawless in the AE300 it’s really difficult to find out.”

    “It’s one of those loudspeakers during listening sessions an involuntary smile appears on the face. The AE300 are very balanced, almost neutral, gently only insulated, but without tendency to over-adjust the edge. Sound live and very consistent, also providing highly satisfying spatial impressions. Are competent in a wide range of musical styles, which also determines their class.” AV Test, Poland July 2018
