Acoustic Energy AE308 Subwoofer is designed to complement the AE300 stand-mounts, AE309 floor-standers and AE307 Centre speakers. The AE308 offers prodigious performance in both Hi-Fi and Home Cinema installations.

AE308 subwoofer makes use of a new 500 Watt (RMS) amplifier mated to a 12” long-excursion doped and stiffened pulp-fibre driver, the AE308 also features a brand new DSP module which gives greater control over the performance whilst substantially reducing distortion and improving low-frequency control.

The new DSP module also offers greater versatility to tailor performance perfectly to the desired music stereo or movie multi-channel audio track, a first for AE. In Music mode the AE308 will perform in a balanced, accurate manner, extending low frequencies of the main speakers naturally and seamlessly down to 26Hz (+/-6dB). In Movie mode there will be additional “slam” on offer to aid explosive movie soundtracks in AV systems. Finally Impact mode trades outright extension for maximum volume and serious impact, more akin to a club set-up for when you really want to party hard!

“Rather than just launch a sub to complement our already successful 300 Series, we wanted to design a sub with substance! and one which could hold its own in any system as well as do justice to the rest of the 300 Series speakers. This sub has been long awaited from our dealers and distributors around the globe and now it’s available, it’s been well worth the wait” comments MD, Mat Spandl.

The AE308 is available in attractive real wood walnut veneer, piano gloss black or white lacquer to match the other 300 Series models and has sturdy carpet-piercing spikes which come with convenient rubber caps for use on hard flooring.
