In celebration of the final production run of one of the UK’s most iconic loudspeakers, there will be a limited edition final production run of the award winning Acoustic Energy AE1 Classic loudspeaker. Just 100 numbered pairs of the AE1 Classic Limited Edition speakers will be produced.

In addition to the luxurious Piano gloss, each unit will be finished with gold plated bolts and feature a matching gold plated Limited Edition plaque with serial and edition numbers on the back of each speaker.

Famed for its acoustic design based on the original AE1, the AE1 Classic LE will retain the same instantly recognizable twin front ported cabinet, spun aluminum cone and 25mm magnesium alloy dome tweeter and offer the same sweet, detailed and engaging sound. The decision to end the life of this highly renowned audio gem is derived from some of the bespoke parts no longer being made available to AE.
