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 eliminate 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 finished walnut veneer finishes, the AE300 will easily integrate within any home décor placed on speaker stands or bookshelves.

The AE308 is an all-new subwoofer from Acoustic Energy.
Designed to complement and integrate seamlessly with the other models in the 300 Series, the AE308 offers prodigious performance in both Hi-Fi and AV implementations; making use of a new 500 Watt (RMS) amplifier mated to a 12” high-excursion doped and stiffened pulp-fibre driver, the AE308 also features DSP modes to tailor performance perfectly to desired usage, a first for AE.
In Music mode the AE308 will perform in a balanced, accurate manner, extending low frequencies of the main speakers naturally and seamlessly down to 26Hz (+/-6dB). In Movie mode there will be additional “slam” on offer to aid explosive movie soundtracks in AV systems. Finally Impact mode trades outright extension for maximum volume and serious impact, more akin to a club set-up for when you really want to party hard!
The AE308 is available in attractive real American walnut veneer, piano gloss black or white to match the other 300 Series models and has sturdy carpet-piercing spikes which come with convenient rubber caps for use on hard flooring.
