    P4 Passive Speakers give you award-winning Audioengine sound in a bold, modern cabinet connected to your tried and true integrated amplifier or stereo receiver.

    In With the New, In With the Old

    We designed the P4 Passive Speakers to pair nicely with digital or hybrid amplifiers as well as stereo receivers, integrated amps, and tube amplifiers. The P4 has a 4 ohm impedance rating, which means it's built to handle more power. At the same time, it still sounds great when connected to any receiver or integrated power amplifier with 4, 6, or 8 ohm speaker output impedance.

    We Know You'll Love the P4 Passive Speakers and Here's Why

    • 2-way passive, front-ported design – the sound exits the speaker primarily through the front and you don't have to worry about sound reverberating off of walls behind the speaker
    • Hand-built cabinets – offer superior quality compared to their mass produced competition
    • Silk dome tweeters & aramid fiber woofers – high quality parts that reproduce sound beautifully and are built to last

    We Made Setup Quick and Easy

    We take our time designing and producing our home music systems so that you won't have to take any time getting them set up. Just a simple connection between speakers and your stereo AV receiver, integrated amplifier, or tube amp and you're ready to rock.

    Questions & answers about the P4 Passive Speakers

    Absolutely!  You can connect any Audioengine speaker with an analog output to any Sonos product that has the Line-In feature.  You can also connect any Audioengine passive speakers into an existing Sonos system using the Sonos Amp.

    The lower the speaker impedance, the more current (amperage) your amp or receiver will need to provide, but most separate power amps have more than a sufficient power supply and power amp sections for driving 4 ohm loads with ease. In fact many amps will perform better with a 4 ohm load as opposed to 8 ohms if their design is robust enough to supply the extra current. A quick web search will bring up more information on this subject.

    The P4 is a very efficient speaker and designed to work well with digital hybrid amplifiers (Class-D, Class-T, etc.) as well as most stereo receivers, integrated amps, tube amplifiers, and whole-house music systems such as the Sonos ZonePlayer 120. Check out our N22 amp for a great setup!

    The upside of the P4 is its spatiality, which is a pretty tough trick for a desktop speaker to pull off.

    Yes, you can find lower priced Bluetooth speakers for your home, but good luck finding one that combines high-end looks with equally high-end sound quality.

    The P4 really shined with playing music. I can imagine it’ll be a hit with up and coming audiophiles.

    If you’re looking to get into high-quality audio, I feel like the P4’s are a great start. I would highly encourage anyone that has a passion for music and a lower budget to invest in these speakers.

    The cute, amplifier-friendly P4 has a relatively smooth frequency response and clean spectral decay, bringing performance up a notch from its rivals.
