The changing roles of hi-fi equipment mean that audio systems themselves are changing shape. The increasing number of products with integrated pre-amplifiers mean that many customers are searching for an equally convenient speaker to connect them to. Taking full advantage of Acoustic Energy’s considerable experience in the field of active speakers, the Acoustic Energy AE1 Active is designed to deliver this convenience without trading performance.

The AE1 Active is a two way stand-mount speaker with integrated class A/B amplification and fully active filter networks. Featuring Acoustic Energy’s legendary pure piston ceramic aluminum 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 aluminum 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.


  • Active 4th order minimum phase crossover

  • Adjustable volume control on each speaker
  • Proprietary Acoustic Energy aluminum dome tweeter optimized for wide bandwidth and low distortion
  • Wide Dispersion Technology (WDT) waveguide for enhanced room integration
