Acoustic Energy AE120² Floorstanding Speaker Review

Introduction

Acoustic Energy has long been recognized for producing speakers that balance technical excellence with musicality. The AE120² floorstanding speakers continue this tradition, promising high-end performance in a relatively compact and aesthetically pleasing package. This review delves into the intricacies of the AE120² to determine if they live up to the brand's reputable pedigree.

Design and Build Quality

The AE120² speakers are available in two finishes—Satin Black and Walnut vinyl veneer—providing options that should blend well with most interior decors. The speakers' tall and slender silhouette is designed to be unobtrusive, yet the quality of the finish gives them a presence that speaks to their premium nature. Weighing in at 19kg each, they are built like tanks, promising durability and longevity.

The construction quality is evident in the substantial High-Density Fibreboard (HDF) enclosures with tuned bracing, which aim to minimize resonances for purer sound reproduction. The magnetic grilles are not only a nod to the clean design but also serve a practical purpose, allowing quick and effortless removal or attachment.

Technical Specifications

The AE120² are 3-way speakers, which means they have separate drivers for bass, midrange, and treble frequencies. This design can provide a more precise soundstage and better overall balance. The 5.2" woofers and midrange drivers, coupled with the 1" soft dome tweeter, cover a commendable frequency range of 39 Hz to 26 kHz. With a sensitivity of 90 dB and peak SPL of 116 dB, these speakers can deliver powerful sound without requiring a massive amplifier.

Audio Performance

When it comes to audio performance, the AE120² speakers shine across various music genres. Their wide frequency range ensures that from the deep rumble of bass to the sparkling highs of treble, every note is accounted for. Although there is a fractional lack of low-end control, the overall bass is tight and punchy.

The midrange is where these speakers truly excel. Vocals and instruments are rendered with a dynamic and lifelike quality. The high frequencies are clear without being harsh, thanks to the soft dome tweeter, which works harmoniously with the doped paper cone for a smooth crossover.

The Wide Dispersion Technology (WDT) waveguide is noteworthy, as it enhances the listening experience by ensuring a controlled sound dispersion, which is particularly beneficial in acoustically challenging rooms.

Features and Technologies

The AE120² speakers are packed with features that are usually found in more expensive models. The High-power neodymium motor assembly is designed for reliable, distortion-free high-volume playback. The rear slot porting aids in smooth bass extension, while the inert-loading and tri-wirable terminals offer additional stability and acoustic damping.

Magnetic shielding is an added benefit, reducing the risk of interference with other electronic equipment, which can be especially useful in a home theater setup.

Usability and Setup

Setting up the AE120² speakers is straightforward, although their weight might make them a bit cumbersome to move around. The spike attachments, which connect directly to the base of the cabinet, provide a modicum of stability, but they might not offer as much isolation as some audiophiles would prefer.

Strengths and Weaknesses

The AE120² speakers boast an impressive set of strengths: high fidelity, detailed and musical sound reproduction, excellent tonal balance, and a well-made, attractive design. However, they are not without their drawbacks. The limited color options might not appeal to all tastes, and the direct attachment of spikes to the base may not provide the desired level of stability for all surfaces.

Comparisons with Competitors

In the competitive market of floorstanding speakers, the AE120² holds its own, especially in the realms of sensitivity and audio fidelity. When compared to other speakers in their price range, they offer a compelling mix of design, features, and performance.

Final Thoughts

The Acoustic Energy AE120² speakers deliver an audio experience that is rich, dynamic, and immersive. They are best suited for users who value detailed sound and robust build quality. Despite the few noted weaknesses, these speakers stand as a testament to Acoustic Energy's commitment to audio excellence and are a worthy investment for those seeking to elevate their home audio experience.
