I had recently purchased a Polk Audio T30 centre speaker to replace my 20 yr old Boston Acoustics centre. The amount of bass the T30 added to voices was brutal so I sent it back. I did a bit research on the Fluance centre channel afterwards and took a chance. I’m more than pleased. It provides crisp, clean, detailed audio. Tiny sounds such as someone simply wiping their hands are things I never noticed before buying this unit. It’s just as wide as the T30 and actually a little bit taller so measure first. And yes, the Canadian flag on the back is a nice touch. Love the lifetime warranty too.

Fantastic and you can’t beat the price! It’s a quality system and will shake your house! I’ve completed my whole system and added the 10” sub and it is amazing! If you want to rock the house or up your movie watching experience this is the way to go!

Purchased the new (and improved) Reference Series center channel to replace my XL7C speaker. Overall LOVE my reference series 5.1 surround speakers, but the center channel seemed to be the weakest link. Reengineered XL8 is a definite improvement with the slightly larger mid range speakers and a smaller frequency response that seems more focused on the mids and highs of most dialogue tracks. Also the slightly adjusted crossover point seems to add to the new speakers clarity. Fluance also offers a 30 day in-home trial, so IF there was no noticeable improvement I could return my purchase for a full refund. Overall a very good purchase at a very fair price!
