Audioengine: P4 Bookshelf Speakers &N22 Amplifier
P4 Bookshelf Speakers & N22 Desktop Amplifier
Our take on the Audioengine P4 by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
High-performance, passive speakers for any amplifier
Compact, beautiful, and affordable — you get the triple whammy of speaker design with Audioengine's P4s. "But how do they sound?" you ask. Your music and movie soundtracks will sound incredibly transparent, alive with midrange presence and crisp, crystalline highs. We wouldn't expect anything less from Audioengine. Close your eyes and you'll be amazed that the spacious, wide-open sound you're hearing is coming from such small speakers.
Audioengine first caught our attention with their excellent-sounding line of powered speakers. These passive speakers are a great option when you already have an amplifier or receiver that you'd like to use. Pair them with Audioengine's N22 integrated amplifier for a compact desktop system that'll make you want to spend more time just listening.
Versatile placement in your living room, bedroom, or office
The P4s work great in just about any audio setup. Mix and match them with any other pair of Audioengine speakers to create a killer surround sound system in your living room. Or use them in a stereo setup in your den, bedroom, or home office. They'll sound great sitting on stands, on a bookshelf, or mounted on a wall using the integrated threaded inserts.

Full-Range Sound: Each of the Audioengine P4s has two drivers; a 3/4" silk dome tweeter and a 4" Kevlar woofer. The front ported cabinets offer accurate bass down to 58 Hz.
Construction: The cabinets are built using 3/4" MDF with internal bracing. Internal sound-damping material reduces unwanted reflections inside the cabinet. The cabinet edges are rounded to reduce high-frequency diffraction effects on the front baffles. The speakers are hand finished and have high-density foam isolation pads on the bottom for placement flexibility.
Binding Posts: The 5-way binding post input terminals are located at the top rear of the speaker cabinet; they will accept spade connectors, pin connectors, single and dual banana plugs, and bare wire up to 10 gauge.
Mounting: The speakers can be wall or ceiling mounted with an optional bracket (not included). There are two 1/4"-20 threaded inserts on the back of each speaker, aligned vertically, approximately 1-3/4" apart. There is also one 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the bottom of each speaker, in the center.

I've been a music nut since I was still in short pants. If I had a nickel for every hour I've spent in my den, listening to records and CDs through my hi-fi system ... I'd have a have a huge pile...
Why did you buy this?
Have heard a lot of good things about these speakers, and they will work perfect for what I want to use them for. [ Clyde Jun 07, 2018 ]
I need decent bookshelf speakers that will actually fit on a bookshelf. Also, because I want to place the speakers on a bookshelf, I do not want speakers with rear-firing bass ports. The P4s have received good reviews, they seem to be well made, and they look nice. [ Jack Feb 03, 2018 ]
Outstanding quality [ Nick Mar 23, 2017 ]

Good reviews and I like the compact size [ David Jan 30, 2017 ]
Great reviews and needed 4 ohm speakers to match system. [ Nathan Nov 26, 2016 ]
Great Value for the price [ Debra Dec 29, 2015 ]
Good reviews and low price [ Ted Nov 26, 2017 ]
I was looking to replace my bookshelf speakers, I don't need too much emphasis on bass since I have a sub to do that job; I'm looking something close range behind or aside my computer monitor that I can play either high or low volume and still be able to hear great sound.. I hope these are "it". And also I read the good reviews. [ allen Mar 19, 2017 ]
I was looking to get some bookshelf speakers for a tight space (in an actual bookshelf). These have a decent frequency response with no rear-facing ports. [ Stefan Mar 18, 2017 ]
