    These are very good speakers, a large upgrade from the rear speakers I was using on my 9.2 system.
    The customer service from this company is very responsive. I contacted them because I really wanted to mount the speakers such that one was up firing off the ceiling and the other down firing.
    I wasn't able to do this, as I would have had to re drill the cabinet. If I had a drill press I would have felt more comfortable with the task, but not with a hand drill.

    The only reason for the four is that I would have wanted the cabinet to come with speaker mounts that would have allowed me to mount them in the orientation I wanted.

    These really fill out the rear of the sound environment, just using them as designed.

    Excellent deal, great build, good looks, improved sound environment.

    The Fluance XLBP speakers sound absolutely amazing. The highs are crystal clear and very articulate. The mids are tight and accurate. The bass these speaker produce is deep and smooth never sloppy or muddied. The dispersion from these speakers is where it absolutely shines filling my home theater with amazing sounds whether it is musical or surround sound in movies. The XLBP immerse you is so much sound that it feels like you are being wrapped up in whatever you are listening to. The build quality is excellent and the cherry pair that I bought look amazing matching well with my cherry PSB T6 front tower speakers. The price to performance ratio makes these speakers one of the best buy in the market today. Buy them as you will not be disappointed.

    The best value in surround speakers right now. I was hesitant at first since I've never heard of the name but due to the positive reviews and comments, I thought I'ld give it a shot. I'm glad I did. This not only sounds tight, it's mahogany and black piano finish puts the icing on top. Great value, free shipping and lifetime warranty, you can't go wrong.

    Simply put, the XLBP's are the best-built, best-sounding, and best-value bipolar speakers in their price category - on the planet ! With their larger cabinets and mid-woofers, ported design, extended frequency response, and increased efficiency rating, they sound notably fuller and louder than Fluance's own earlier design bipolars, the AVBP2's, which I'm also running as part of my 7.1 system. Using the XLBP's (and Klipsch RS400's) as my sides, and the AVBP2's (and older Klipsch SS1's) as my rears. I'm also running dedicated subwoofers for each of my side and rear channels, as well as for my center and front L&R channels, not to mention dual subs for my LFE. My overall goal for using muliple subs is to eliminate dead listening spots, and not for sheer volume, as I live in a duplex. Anyhoo, I'm delighted with my XLBP's (as well as my AVBP2's). Keep up the gr8 work, Fluance :)

    Please consider this a partial review - in breaking in my XLBPs, I have not yet used them for their ultimate purpose. When I unboxed these, I was thrilled by how nice they looked and felt. Since surround speakers real job is NOT to call attention to themselves, my immediate question was: how do they sound? And since using them immediately as surround speakers would not highlight their performance, I have been breaking them in by using them as front left and right speakers, and listening to music, I have the inside speaker baffle pointing straight at my listening position, which points the outer plane towards the side walls of my room. I know that this will cause a certain amount of unwanted reflection and it is not what the speakers are designed for, but it's been a great way to hear what they really sound like. And (finally getting to the point) they sound just as good as they look. The treble is particularly clear and crisp, without a trace of harshness. The pre-installed hangers with their keyhole slots will make installation as actual surround speakers a breeze when I get around to stopping enjoying them as interim main speakers. When I do get them properly hung, the XLBPs will be a fantastic upgrade from what was formerly the weak link in my installation.

    I've never heard of the brand before but because of the rave reviews, I thought I'ld give it shot and change out my aging KLH TW-09B. Right out of the box, the mahogany finish and white cone woofer on piano black surface looks sharp. Got it hooked up to my stereo unit for the break in and as soon as Chuck Mangione played "Feel So Good", boy, what an elevation on that musical experience. "Feel So Good" never sounded that good before. It looks like Fluance is making a mark in the audio industry. Reasonably priced, free shipping, great customer support and lifetime warranty, no need to look elsewhere and waste money. Thanks Fluance!

    I've had 4 of these for about a year and a half now and they are installed as the rear surrounds in a 7.1 setup. After all this time, I still think they are the absolute best value in surrounds, bar none. the sound field is huge. I have one row of seats at the THX spec, the other at Dolby (yes, I got very luck in my room shape and size!) The sound from the 5.1 channels is almost indistinguishable from either location. The 7.1 drops off a little, but not enough to notice unless you really compare the two. Your not going to find better sound quality unless your willing to pay at least twice as much, probably closer to three times and even then, i'm not so sure you'll see any difference.

    My only negative is, these baby's are BIG! As long as you have the room, you'll love them, but you need to check the size in your installation.

    One thing to consider. If you have a long room and use them as the 7.1 rear channel, you might prefer a direct (non bipolar) speaker. This is more of a personal preference then anything else, but I know some people that prefer the more direct sound. As for the 5.1 channels, you just can't go wrong with the XLBP's.

    I have something great to add to my earlier review: I loaned my XLBPs to my daughter, who is taking her first steps towards something better than TV speakers. It turns out that the layout of her apartment dictates a corner placement for the TV, and the room has seating on the 2 walls furthest from that corner. She is using the XLBPs as 2.0 main speakers. It turns out that they can be placed so that one plane of each speaker can be pointed pretty much directly at each of the primary seating areas, and as a result, they fill the room beautifully without having to crank up the volume. I've never lived with a corner placement situation, but it seems to me that the design of the XLBPs are very well suited to both their intended use, and also for solving a nontraditional, but probably common, placement for main speakers. And, speaking as someone who appreciates both design and sound quality, these speakers really come through on both counts. They're a fantastic value.

    I bought these with the XL7F tower speakers for my home theater and music listening. I'm using a Sub and Center channel speaker from another manufacturer. I have to say these are absolutly amazing. Truly impressive. I've had them for almost 2.5 years now and not a day goes by that I don't NOTICE how good they sound. You won't regret if if you purchase them.

    Tomas L November 20, 2015

    I bought these speakers a couple months ago and i could not be more pleased with them. I put them up in my sunroom as main front L+R channels and the quality sound these speakers produce is amazing. Whether it's watching movies or listening to music, the room is filled with crisp sound coming from all directions.
    Fantastic purchase for a fantastic price from a fantastic company.
    I will not be buying speakers from another company for a very long time.
