Acoustic Energy

Acoustic Energy

Acoustic Energy was founded in London, England on April 4th 1987. Initially known as “Eldonfield Limited”, the name was changed on the 25th June 1987 and “Acoustic Energy” was officially born. The first product from the factory was the legendary AE1 compact Loudspeaker, the AE1 set a new standard in compact speaker performance that has been the basis of the company’s product ethos ever since.

In 1994 Acoustic Energy moved to a new facility to cope with increasing production, 100 miles west of London in the historical Cotswold town of Cirencester where they remain to this day. Around this time AE received investment from large Malaysian OEM speaker manufacturer, Formosa Prosonic Industries (FPI). FPI bought a controlling stake in AE and their financial backing & manufacturing partnership allowed AE to expand into the budget loudspeaker market, later into electronics and “World First” products such as an early Bluetooth™ speaker and WiFi Internet radio.

In early 2017 Acoustic Energy once again became wholly British owned and now trades under the name “Acoustic Energy Loudspeakers Ltd”. Over the last 30 Years AE has won hundreds of awards and accolades from the world’s Hi-Fi press and remains one of the most highly regarded loudspeaker companies in the world.
