Acoustic Energy AE108² Active Subwoofer
The AE108² is a new, compact, yet extremely powerful active subwoofer with remote control for easy set-up and adjustability.
Designed to work seamlessly as part of a multi-channel system including the AE100’s, AE109’s, AE120’s and AE107, the AE108² is ideal for the modern home where controlled bass performance is required without compromising the living space.
At less than one cubic foot in size, the AE108² can be positioned discretely and adjusted with the supplied remote control to achieve the ideal audio balance from the listening position. Finished in a choice of satin black or walnut vinyl veneer finishes, the AE108² delivers a bass punch that belies its compact size.
Acoustic Energy’s bespoke 28mm 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 110mm 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 sturdy 18mm MDF enclosures with carefully tuned bracing, reducing harmful resonances whilst retaining body and substance from compact, practical cabinets. The rear slot porting* enhances smooth bass extension with minimal room impact, allowing easy placement. The AE109 and AE120 feature inert mass-loading for additional stability and acoustic damping, all models come supplied with slim magnetic grilles.
* The AE108² is a sealed box with no slot port.
