The 28mm aluminium dome tweeter also features our WDT Wide Dispersion Technology™ and a re-designed 130mm aluminium mid-bass driver uses a ceramic aluminium sandwich cone and long throw motor system. The seamless cabinet enclosures boast an inert 18mm high density MDF material with proprietary internal bracing technology to reduce cabinet colouration. They’re finished in attractive real open grain walnut wood veneer, piano grade high gloss black or white lacquer options.
The result is a premium-finished package which offers a refined, accurate and above all, enjoyable musical experience. Embodying all the qualities Acoustic Energy are famous for… and designed for the love of music.
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.
