The AE309 is a slim-line floor-standing loudspeaker with compact dimensions, suitable for medium to large-sized rooms. Similar to the AE300 comparison, the AE309 offers higher levels of performance and finish than its 100 Series equivalent. The result of the latest drive unit technology and enclosure design is a slim-line, powerful floor-standing loudspeaker for the discerning listener when refined audio quality coupled with elegant aesthetics are paramount.
A new 28mm aluminum 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 Acoustic Energy's 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 AE309 uses two latest generation 130mm mid-bass drive units. 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 overall power handling.
The inert 18mm high density MDF cabinet utilizes proprietary bracing technology derived from the award-winning Reference Series, to reduce cabinet coloration 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. Finished in a choice of Piano gloss black, white or satin real walnut wood veneer finishes, the AE309 will easily integrate within any home décor.
