Excellent sound with elegant simplicity and a new standard for computer audio
Versatile connections, including USB digital audio and subwoofer output
Designed for your desktop but also sounds great across the room
Upgrade your Audio
The Audioengine 2+ is the new standard for computer audio and these small, but high-performance speakers are the perfect upgrade for your computer. Everyone knows the difference between custom-built, small batch products and the disappointment of mass-produced and over-marketed products. The A2+ was designed and hand-built with the goal of exceeding expectations of both value and performance.
The Audioengine 2+ is about one-third the size of our flagship Audioengine 5+ powered speakers and an ideal size for your desktop or smaller room. They used the same custom tweeters as in the Audioengine 5+, matched them with compact Kevlar woofers, then added high-performance amplifiers with high-quality connectors. All this great engineering is wrapped in wood cabinets with a hand-polished finish to create a premium quality desktop multimedia speaker system that puts all those sad plastic computer speakers to shame!
Smaller Speakers, Still Big Bass
To say that the bass on the Audioengine 2+ is substantial for their size may be an understatement, but you should be the judge. The bass was teased from the A2+ with some clever acoustic and electrical design without using any digital signal processing or fake bass boost circuits. Wood remains a preferred speaker enclosure material for its stiffness at higher volume levels and the cabinet focuses just the right amount of low end from the tuned front port slots.
Versatile and Efficient
The A2+ was designed for your desktop but their superb soundstage and imaging also makes them the perfect choice for across the room. Well-suited for all your music, movies and games, the A2+ sounds great with or without a subwoofer. Using a similar analog design as the Audioengine 5+, the A2+ power amplifiers are built inside the left speaker providing a very efficient system. An auto-standby idle mode is also included to conserve power when you're not playing music.
The A2+ features analog amplifiers that are built into the left speaker, while the right speaker is passive so setup is simple. Just plug the left speaker into AC power and connect the included speaker wire from left to right. They’ve included minijack, RCA, and USB inputs for easy connection to your computer or iDevice and other cables you may need are included. There is no software or plug-ins to install and A2+ works with any computer or music player. The A2+ also has a variable RCA output for connecting a subwoofer, upgraded connectors, improved accessory cables, and a redesigned power supply.
Minding the Gap
The Audioengine 2+ sets a new level of audio and aesthetic quality for Powered Multimedia Speakers and further closes the gap between computer speakers and home audio. Even if you're not an audio enthusiast, they guarantee you will still hear a difference!

S8 Premium Powered Subwoofer
S8 Premium Powered Subwoofer
Excellent performance for music, movies, and games. Audioengine S8 is the perfect bass extension for Audioengine powered speakers or as an upgrade to any music system. Super compact size and wireless-ready.
Upgrade your audio
At about 11" square with an 8" custom woofer, this powered subwoofer is small enough to place in a corner or hide behind furniture. The AS8 delivers great bass performance and its low, tight, and smooth bass will blend well with the other speakers in your system.
The AS8 has a super-fast woofer designed for audio and home theater performance. It features an anti-resonant steel frame and heavy-duty rubber speaker surround for accurate low end. The AS8's bottom-firing and front-ported design means you'll hear quick, precise bass with low distortion, even at higher volume levels. In other words, this is a tight, smooth, and natural-sounding little subwoofer.
Custom-designed and handcrafted wood cabinets with high-gloss white or satin black finish make the Audioengine S8 a true work of art. Cabinets are made of rock solid 1-inch thick, internally braced MDF to eliminate cabinet vibrations which means distortion-free, accurate response.
If you decide to locate the Audioengine S8 away from your powered speakers or surround sound AV receiver, check out the Audioengine W1 wireless audio adapter or Apples Airport Express for high-quality wireless options. The AS8 has a built-in AC outlet on the rear panel that's perfect for powering these great-sounding wireless products.
High Power Amplifier
With plenty of continuous class A/B power, the AS8 internal amplifier has a dual-voltage switch and detachable power cord.
Dual line-level inputs (1/8" mini-jack and RCA connectors) are included on the rear panel so connecting AS8 to all your gear is easy. And all cables you'll need are included.
Versatile Yet Simple Controls
Variable adjustable rear panel controls for Crossover, Phase, and Subwoofer Volume allow you to easily adjust the AS8's output and blending with your speakers. An auto-sleep standby feature turns the AS8 amplifier off when you're not playing music.
