acoustic energy rears help


Established Member
im going to be moving out of my parents soon and am putting together an acoustic energy 5.1 setup for my living room, so far i have the evo 3 fronts and will be getting the evo centre.
now im stuck between these http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/1281

and these http://www.petertyson.co.uk/ebuttonz/ebz_product_pages/acousticenergyaegisevo1-aeevo1.shtml?dt

i dont want to drill holes in the wall so stands are a must but i cant find any pictures of the compacts to see if i can actually attach them to stands

any opinions or someone that has either?

The compacts are wall mounting and built into a plastic box. The Evo1's would make great stand mount speakers, I have a pair and boy do they sound great.


Distinguished Member
No, they are a plastic box with curves etc. And to be honest they have to go down as the poorest speaker ever made by Acoustic Energy. And considering the EVO 1's a pair are only £20 more, all I can say is they are a bargain.


Prominent Member
The Evo Ones are nice speakers for £120/pair and I'd second going for those, though confess I haven't hear the compacts etc.

I owned Evo Ones for a year.
