    When the sub is working, it's good. But it's broken just less than a year after purchase. I'm really disappointed by the quality.

    WE loved the sound from this subwoofer but it took a "dive" after several months. Luckily Fluance has an INCREDIBLE customer service policy. Julie walked me through the entire process of how to return and has kept in touch with me on a frequent basis. She's a real asset to the companu

    My items arrives, box is banged up a bit, no issue, everything inside looks great, power it on and have it plugged in and all I got was a rattling sound, upon co tactic shoptronics they want me to ship it back to them and lose out on my express shipping I already paid, no reimbursement whatsoever, and wait for another item. Well I took it to the local repair guy because I opened it up and some wire, coil looking thing was unsprung and allover the place inside the box around the magnet. I'd still like a full refund because the sub driver is non repairable and must be replaced

    Great sub for the price.

    After reading all the reviews I come to the conclusion that most people bought this unit for home theatre use to be listened to at ear splitting volumes. For us audiophiles, and I am not talking about Walmart junk, but a well thought out high end sound system, the added bottom end just fills in the low level gaps rather well. Takes a while to get it sounding just right but the rewards are evident after a decent break in. The only nit picking would be the horrible binding posts, which seem like an afterthought. The power cord receptacle is only a two prong affair that does not allow IEC plugs. Oh well, I can work around that.

    I use this primarily as a home studio and the subwoofer added the depth in sound that wasn't there before. Nice clean sound.

    The damn thing rattles.... Sounds good but the rattle is very annoying...

    This is my second purchase from Fluance, I previously bought a pair of Ai60 speakers which I got specifically for their subwoofer output. Just like the speakers, the sub performs great, especially considering the price. I went for the red cherry one and it just looks amazing with my setup. the shipping was really fast too.

    I unfortunately had to contact Fluance because the sub started to crackle after several months of usage. The defect was covered by the warranty so they had me return it for replacement. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth and professional the process went (Thanks Dawn!) as I received a replacement within days of me returning the original one.

    Definitely not my last purchase, you guys rock!

    After getting it set up correctly using Audessey on my Marantz SR 7008 AVR, this budget sub integrated very well on my 5.1 home theater set up. Punchy, clean bass without being boomy. Ill be adding another one soon. One of the better looking subs out there too.

    My Polk subwoofer died so I discovered fluance speakers and I purchased their DB 12 powered subwoofer and it's been great sounds good.

    Amazing look - deep bass. Perfect complement for the signature series speakers

    Jarek P February 8, 2021 Ontario, Canada

    deep and strong lows. I got just one of them, nor being sure I'd be staying with it, and after a couple of days listening to my setup expanded by this speaker I decided to buy a second one and make it a two subwoofer configuration. I'm re-watching some movies all over again, just to enjoy the whole new sound quality.
    My main L/R speakers already did have a good base, and fed in a bi-amp configuration, but those two new changed the game quite a bit.

    One of the best values for a sub of this size. Added a whole new dimension to music .. and more so to my home theater.

    Ray R December 15, 2020

    I have become a huge fan of Fluance in past year, I decided to upgrade my sound system last year with a pair of Reference tower speakers, and boy was I happy with the speakers, I enjoyed them so much, I purchased a Fluance turntable, and recently the DB12 subwoofer to complete the upgrade. I could not be happier, the sub kicks just right for me, I did have a bit of trouble wiring it up, but customer service walked me through the process and was great to work with. Biuy with confidence, you will be happy.
