The Energy 4.1e had a smooth, slightly warm sound character. It projected a distinct stereo image, with accurate lateral positioning and a good sense of height. Its bass performance was perhaps its clearest difference from most speakers of its size and basic type: It can deliver a useful amount of low-distortion output in the 35- to 40-Hz range.
Although there are a number of speakers with finished front panels that can be used without their grilles, most of them present a somewhat raw appearance in that condition. The unique front panel of the Energy 4.1e actually looks as though it were meant to be seen, and the speaker looks good either way. It also sounds good, with a pleasing balance and stereo presentation that make it a strong contender among speakers of its size and price.
