2018 Best Active Speaker
“The AE1 Active speakers outperform plenty of more expensive options.”

Editor's Choice

Editor's Choice

"No hype or exaggeration here, just a natural sense of power, pace and perspective. Essentially, the sounds is dynamic, tactile, tightly focused and creates a stereo arc that effortlessly ghosts through the walls of my larger listening room."

Best Of 2017

"This speaker rocks and the impact of drums and other instruments is explosive thanks its dynamic capabilities. If you own a preamp or streamer with analogue output these loudspeakers will do a great job, they will also work nicely on the mixing desk of a home studio. Recommended and not only for performance, they are a steal." - René van Es

Taking full advantage of Acoustic Energy’s considerable experience in the field of active speakers, the AE1 Active is designed to deliver this convenience without trading performance.

The AE1 Active is a two way standmount speaker with integrated class A/B amplification and fully active filter networks. Featuring Acoustic Energy’s legendary pure piston ceramic aluminium cone technology, the AE1 Active has all the refinement and impact you would expect from the original AE1 housed within a self powered, fully active package. The speakers also feature Acoustic Energy’s proprietary aluminium dome tweeter with our unique WDT waveguide for improved coverage and room integration.

The AE1 Active is equally comfortable in the home or the recording studio. With the added benefit of adjustable bass and treble and a choice of RCA or balanced XLR connections, this speaker blends seamlessly into any listening environment.
