Please don't think less of me, but I was never able to adapt to the sound of the speaker, but the boxes are well made, and cheaper to buy than blank boxes for DIY. I've since added the Hivi F5 woofer, 18db slope crossover (Eminence), Fountek NeoCD1.0 Ribbon Tweeter, new gold plated post. I'm sure you're wondering why I'm writing this, and the answer is no cutting whatsoever. Even if you buy and don't like the sound, the boxes are very well built and can be used for an audiophile speaker (similar to the Swans M1b $2200). Either way, I thinks this speaker is a bargain for a multitude of reasons.
Wow, wow. Fantastic speakers. This is the best valued purchase I have done in years: Pure, crisp, perfect sound at an incredible low price for such very high quality speakers. Thanks guys, I am just amazed. I will get more of your other speaker systems for sure.
To be honest this is the best investment i ever made these bookshelf speaker sound so complete its heavenly i love how it looks in my bed room with my 37 in tv in the middle my set up uses a smsl sa 98e 160w amp with a sanskrit dac through optical wire that magical sounds coming out of these thing i should of buy 2 pairs and stack them on top of each other for a killer sound system
The sx6 is my first Fluance purchase I discovered the brand quite some time ago but hesitated on purchasing. The hesitation came from their price, these days quality costs, especially in the hifi world. Fluance has made me understand that is not always true, they do honestly create a more than satisfactory product with a real world price tag. I love listening to my sx6's. They are powered by a 25 watt/ channel T amp connected to a Yamaha avr running through the 2nd zone. I use Yamaha's ipod dock and listen to lossless and lossy files, and I must say the sx6's reproduce my music so well. Majority of my music is a urban genre but I also have artist like Elvis, Faith No More & Duck Sauce. I need a speakers that can play such a range of music artist, and the sx6's do not disappoint the bass they produce is tight and controlled, the highs are crisp without the being harsh which helps when you play a few songs @ 256kbps. I can honestly say I enjoy listening to my Fluance speakers more than my other Canadian speakers
that cost severel hundreds more than my sx6's. Great job Fluance you truly offer a quality product that rivals the competition in both sound and price.
There are people online (a few audio forums) that have not heard these speakers that say things like, "Fluance SX-6 are just white van speakers," "I bought the Pioneer SP-BS22LR and they are the best but I never heard the Fluance".... all kinds of crazy comments!
The fact of the matter is the Fluance are very, very good sounding speakers, period. I bought these in Dec. of 2013 and have been listening to them for a year. They do need some break in. There is a guy on YouTube that compares the Fluance SX-6 to the Pioneers and some Mica speakers. I listened to his review and bought the Fluance based on that video. I'm not sorry in the least bit.
I bought them solely for music (vinyl). My receiver is a 1970's Sansui 6060 and my turntable is a Dual 601 with a Shure M91ED cart and a JICO SAS stylus. Although I also use a Dayton Audio 8" sub with these Fluance SX-6's and let me tell you the sound is clear, concise and accurate. With proper placement you might find you don't need a sub for music... the bass is pretty good in these. I just like a tad bit more. That's why I only picked up an 8''sub. It just adds a bit more tight clear low end.
I think I paid right around $130.00 delivered. Buy a pair first and give an honest listen. If you don't like them send them back or flip them. If your on a budget and looking for sound that far surpasses the cost then give these a spin. They are very nice. Do they sound as good as good as the new JBL Studio Monitor 4312M II? Maybe not. But the Fluance SX-6 don't cost $1000.00 a pair either. I really like these SX-6's! :)
Purchased these on a whim and am so so glad that I did. I have been listening to music non stop for the last week and they keep improving. i am using them with a sub woofer connected to a Harmon Kardon receiver. I love finding quality at cheap prices, and these speakers just know it out of the park! If you have been sitting there debating on if you should get these or not, just do it. You can't go wrong at this price and you will be very very satisfied with the sound. You can listen to these babies for hours and not have your ears get "tired". The build quality is very high and the speakers were much heavier than I expected, I used 18 gauge wire initially, then got some 12 gauge wire as recommended and did notice a difference. Can't say enough good things about these speakers.
I was drawn to these speakers after viewing a Youtube video that compared them to several other brands and honestly, even through the camera's mic and my own computer speakers, I could tell that the Fluance were a better speaker. I purchased them through Amazon with free shipping. They were recieved within a week and super well packed. These are some classy looking speakers for the price. I was well aware of the break-in period so before I even got into serious listening, I loaded my mp3 player with a file that was nothing but a 40hz sine wave tone. With the volume turned up so the speaker was doing about 1/4 inch of excursion, I let them play for 24 hours.... nothing but bass. I have since done some serious listening and have found them very pleasant indeed. I am using them in a bi-amped system with an electronic crossover. I'm trying to find the ideal "bass to mid" crossover frequency and I'm currently experimenting in the 80hz to 120hz region. I'm finding that the lower point (80hz) gives better imaging for my Sonic Hologram. Raising the crossover to 120hz seems to give a better bass (for my particular room) but leaves the Sonic Hologram a bit fuzzy. Instrument location isn't as focused. I'm still experimenting on variables like distance from walls and some selective EQ. I noticed a slight dip in the 4khz to 8khz region so a little tweak there might come into play. Regardless of all reviews, these are still economy speakers. That being said, they are on the economy side of audiophile quality. These small giants are rivaling speakers many times their price bracket. I recommend them highly.
I was looking to finally downsize to bookshelf from the massive box 15-inch woofer three way speakers I have owned since the late 1970â€™s. I researched on the internet and stumbled across Fluance speakers, with nothing but rave reviews from everyone. I thought it just could not be true, they were inexpensive and small, but I ordered a pair of the SX6 bookshelf speakers. They arrived and were smaller then I anticipated. Okay, lets just see how good they are. I hooked one speaker up on the right and one big box speaker on the left and put in a CD. I was truly blown away, this small two-way speaker was cleaner, with more punch and a better defined bass, and crystal clear highs that out performed my old speakers. I disconnected my old speakers and retired them to the garage. The Fluance SX6 speakers are excellent and I have recommended them to all my friends.
I think the break in is more like 30-50 hours, but that's a small item.
The separation of instruments are excellent, the detail is excellent and the bass is good. The power required should be more like 60-100 watts (RMS) than 30-100, because they do pull some power when you play loud.
Fluance should consider starting a new line of bookshelf hifi speakers starting with this speaker. The SX6 could cost twice as much and still be competitive with the speakers that claim to be clean sounding. The tweeter is excellent, but the midrange is just a bit bright. Highly recommended for those not looking for a speaker to be open box ready (newbies).
I recently purchased these speakers (and some others from the SX series) and I was compelled to write a review. I normally do not write reviews whether a product is good or bad.
But I have to say that these speakers are good, and I want Fluance to stick around. Since the late 90's, big box stores stopped carrying affordable speakers that had a decent sound to them that I was used to growing up. Surround sound speakers/systems popped up everywhere and companies forced consumers to pay ridiculous prices for speakers that sounded remotely decent. What the newer generations do not know is that decent-sounding speakers used to be everywhere, and affordable. Fluance is what I had been looking for.
You do not need to spend a fortune for good sound, trust me. Even if I could comfortably afford $5,000 speakers, I would not spend that amount on speakers. I have owned expensive speakers in the past, but it is just not necessary to go the expensive route, and this is coming from a huge lifetime vinyl/music buff. I have finally found speakers with clarity and bass that sound like affordable speakers used to sound a long time ago. I will be buying more speakers from Fluance in the future.
I must quibble with one item because 10 hours will not break those speakers in. Mine took close to 30 and I expect they will sound even better after a hundred. That aside, they are budget audiophile speakers and should be treated that way. I just ordered a new Marantz stereo receiver 4023 to drive them properly. The detailing is as good as anything I've heard for years. The tweeters are exceptional, and I have very expensive Morel tweeter in my AV fronts. When these reach their maximum capability, they could be very close to them. I'm not sure how they got the 60Hz bottom end, but they can go to 50 already, and I expect they will reach the high forties when the woofer optimizes. The ability to play loud and cleanly makes them special. I do think newbies might have a problem understanding the break in period, but it they do, they will be happy they purchased the SX6. I wish Fluance would create line of stand alone bookshelf speakers with these being the first. I do wish Fluance would cut back on the giant letters or maybe create an emblem to replace the letters. There are abit overbearing now.
I have moved into a new house and needed speakers that would not take up too much room, but still sounded good. I have used many different speakers over the years, some very expensive and some homemade. These speakers are a marvel! The highs are clear and tight, the lows are well defined. The speakers construction is very good. I can not recommend these speakers highly enough! I will be recommend ing these speakers to to my friends too! I am very pleased indeed!
I decided to try these speakers spontaneously without previous searching for reviews, as a Christmas gift for myself. Never heard about this brand before. I just was attracted by their good claimed characteristics at relatiively low price ($150 at Future shop online store). Since Future shop refused to ship them to Quebec residents I bought them directly from Fluance for a few bucks more with same free shipping and without ridiculous Quebec sale tax . Received them in three days.
These SX6s exceeded my best expectations! Tried them with NAD S370 and Sherwood RX 4105. Excellent results for this class of speakers in both cases. Compared them with my big floor standing much-much more expensive living room speakers: SX6s lost, of course, but just a little. I was stunned. This is really high definition things. I hope, after some time of playing they will sound better as it happens with big high end speakers.
My conclusion: SX6 speakers produce very clear, well articulated, natural sounds. Any kind of music - rock, jazz, classic â€“ and voices are reproduced equally well. There is no need to add sub woofer to these guys. Drivers handle basses, mids and highs appropriately, with no distortion even at high power. What is also important, speakers finished very well and look really nice. For the little work room, where I spend most time at home, it is a perfect choice.
The only my regret was when I discovered that some time I bought SX6s Fluance reduced the price for them to $120 for the pair. For this level of quality it's just unbelievable. This is the rare case when low price does not mean same low quality.
Congratulations with very good product, Fluance! I highly recommend it.
goodbye JBL,cerwin Vega and KLIpscn there is a new kid on the block and they are kicking ass.
First let me say that 10 hours doesn't get the break in complete. I've now used them over 12 and I fully expect them to not be ready for critical listening until they reach 30 hours. Speakers with rubber surrounds don't break in that quickly. Aside from that bit of disagreement, the company needs to pull these out as stand alone series. The transition from quiet to loud is some of the best I've ever seen. The separation of instruments or singers is excellent, and they are perfect as stereo speakers to give the accuracy and drama the music deserves. I highly recommend these to experience listeners that want to get away from AV listening and return to stereo. A newbie might have a difficult time understanding why there's a break in period and send them back before they reach their potential. They are being driven well with a vintage AKAI 30 watt integrated amp and that is sufficient power.See all reviews
