Acoustic Energy AE509 Floorstanding Speakers

4/5 (1 Reviews) MSRP : $2195.00

Product Description

Although designed using the same cabinet dimensions as the AE505, the AE509 has acoustic performance differences. This 3-way floor-stander features a 25mm silk- coated fabric dome tweeter with AE-design anodised alloy cone drive-units for the bass and mid-range. The triple chamber, bass-reflex cabinet includes a mid-range enclosure which has a damped alignment with a rear port, and the drive unit which has its own separate enclosure with a second high power flared port on the rear baffle. In addition to conventional, passive driving, the AE509 can also be tri-wired or tri-amped for purist audiophile performance. The detail, clarity and subtlety of the AE509 coupled with the superb stereo separation and extended bass response expected of a much larger speaker, provide a quality of sound harmoniously balanced for the discerning audiophile.

Bottom Line:   
Will show up holes in poor amplification, particularly with lack of power, so reccomend triamping. Full price of £850 can be reduced to £500 with a bit of looking - far far better than anything at this price - value rating is based on 500.
