Our take on the Audioengine P4N by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
Versatile, high-performance passive speakers
Compact, beautiful, and affordable you get the triple whammy of speaker design with Audioengine's P4s. Plus their stylish carbonized bamboo finish matches beautifully with almost any decor. "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.
Solid bamboo cabinets for speakers that look fantastic
These speakers feature solid bamboo cabinets for a simple, modern look and stunning performance. And Audioengine takes care to be eco-friendly, too they use only renewable and sustainable bamboo, and the cabinets are sealed with a hand-rubbed water-based polyurethane.
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.

Beautifully constructed and very pleasing on the eye. Very clear sounding speaker but lacks any deep bass. Works well as a surround sound, jazz, or light music. Would recommend but would also recommend running an independent subwoofer.

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 solid, hand-finished bamboo. The color is not a stain; as the wood is pressure heated, the sugar compounds inside the bamboo are carbonized, which in turn darkens the bamboo to a rich caramel color. 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.
