Energy Powers Up With Speaker Base Station

By Peter Suciu

To get energy, one needs power -- and thus it is fitting that the Energy Power Base would make its debut at the 2013 International CES.

This new single-cabinet 2.1 audio solution was designed to be stationed under most flat-panel TVs up to 40 inches. It also works well on a cabinet or shelf.

The Energy Power Base has a two-way driver design with built-in subwoofers and 120 watts of system power. It also provides a single connection from the TV.

Other features include a Dolby Digital decoder, combined with both digital and analog inputs. Boasting a quick setup for instant listening pleasure, the Energy Power Base is also equipped with Bluetooth wireless connectivity, which means that this device can double as a wireless music streaming system.

The Energy Power Base should start shipping sometime in the summer of 2013.

Energy also introduced its Take Classic I/O Series 4 and 5 waterproof speakers, designed to withstand the elements for extended use. Each one has UV-treated cabinets, rust-resistant grills, mounting brackets and 5-way gold-plated binding posts.

The Take Classic I/O 4 offers a 0.5-inch tweeter and a 4-inch subwoofer, while the Take Classic I/O 5 boasts a 1-inch tweeter and a 5.25-inch woofer. The Energy Take Classic I/O Series will be available in the spring. Prices on Energy Power Base components includes $99.99 for the I/O 4 pair; $149.99 for the I/O 5 pair; and $399.99 for the Power Base.
