The AE500 bookshelf features the newly developed carbon fibre tweeter and mid/bass driver, designed to match the pistonic power and accuracy of the legendary ceramic aluminium drivers used in the AE300 speakers but with improved self-damping for a smoother, more transparent sound.
The crossovers use high voltage polypropylene film wound capacitors and air core inductors at critical locations for optimum dispersion through a smaller acoustic source size within the crossover region.
These unique drivers are housed in our new 18mm Resonance Suppression Composite (RSC) cabinets, evolved from the prestigious Reference Series and featuring the same constrained layer composite to greatly reduce cabinet acoustic radiation, which would otherwise colour the sound.
