I have to say that ALL of my purchases from Fluance have ended with me being extremely satisfied. The workmanship is the best. The sound, impressive! I am using these as a "Cinema Front " with my Yamaha RX-483BL until I can move them to the "rear" of my Living room later this year. This completes my Fluance revamp of my old speaker system. Well worth it. I can now actually enjoy my music. Is it a "High End System"? No. But you can't find this quality; for the price, from anyone else. Now the question is, should I get the Turntable ?

These replaced a pair of old 90s Technic surrounds. Haha. Suddenly makes my 5.2.2. much more lively on the rear/sides. Didn't know how much sound I was missing before I replaced with these. They sound good to me at least. They fit in with the rest of my setup, and creates a good bubble of sound to listen in. Definitely noticed an immediate difference, made music and movies sound way better. They produce a better depth of sound by far. I'm sure there are better things out there, but surely not for the money. The product seems above average to me at least. They are large! But do look nice.

Once I got a taste of Fluance's bipolar speakers as rear surrounds, I had to have them for all my rooms with tvs. It's the best option for those of us without the perfectly shaped rooms. Place them on the wall behind you or to the sides. Awesomeness! The company is wonderful too. You rarely see such quality in both the product and the packaging. They also ship quickly as well. I love Fluance (and I wasn't paid to say anything)!

Bought these on a whim and have not regretted it. I liked these so much I bought the centre channel.Great sound, looks slick and Canadian MadeOnly drawback is you can't use banana plugs if your mounting on the wall

Broke these in as mains, and they imaged well and sounded great as "small" speakers in my home theater. As surrounds they blend well with my Canton GLE series fronts. The drivers used are ok; nothing special. The enclose is almost a work of art. Very good looking and solid construction. I personally like the mounting mechanism; they just require some skill to get the screws at the right distance apart as there is only a millimeter or two of wiggle room. My only negative experience is there is a slight lack of midbass when not wall mounted, but you do not get that in a speaker designed for wall mounting as wall mounting emphasizes the bass due to boundary reinforcement. The crossover in a wall mounted speaker should adjust for the boundary reinforcement by shelving the bass output. This one definitely seems to, so no putting these on a stand in the middle of the room (exactly what I was doing while breaking them in).

I purchased these speakers after reading review from others and I was not disappointed. The speakers have great build quality and quite heavy. I mounted them on the wall making sure at least one screw is on the stud. The surround sound quality is great and for the price I paid these are great speakers.

The sound is beautiful. Full and honestly sounds better than higher end bookshelves I was using as my rears.Whoever designed the mounting system should be immediately fired though. Most screws don't even fit into the keyholes and you can't see what you're doing so you're putting them up trying to feel around for screws and hoping you measured 100% right because there's no template and if you're off by a fraction of an inch, it's not going. Lots of swearing and sweating but finally got them up. Once they're on the wall, they look and sound amazing.

Very happy customer. These speakers have a great balance of power and detail. They look fantastic too, which help sets them above the competition. They pair beautifully with my Fluance floor standing and center channel speakers.

Just WOW! I didn't see too many reviews on these so I figured I would give them a try. These speakers really fill out a room! They have crazy, tight bass for being a surround speaker...and the highs are extremely clear as well. I didn't expect these speakers to make such a difference in my home theatre setup. I have a Denon Receiver and Infinity everything else, quite a bit of money wrapped up in it. The only thing I didn't care for was the magnetic grille covers. If you bump them they slide over or fall off. They do stay on while mounted on a wall and being used so good enough.

Excellent sound, excellent quality and excellent value for the money. I actually use them as my front speakers in a lower ceiling (8-1-2 feet) room and I'm very surprised at the sound that comes from these speaker for the price paid. No complaints.
