I'm now a believer in bipole speakers for surround. These speakers not only exceeded my expectations in bulls quality, but the sound is very realistic.
With my old Polk speakers I could enjoy a movie, but now I am totally immersed and find it extremely difficult to pin point where ambient noises are emminating from while stool reviving all of the directional cues the studio intended. Over all a much more realistic presentation.
I'm proud to own these speakers.
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.
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.
Just bought these surround speakers,& boy am I impressed, but not so much at first. I have a Integra 50.4, (upgraded from an Onkyo 805), & I had been using the 7.1 set up. My fronts are Infinity Beta 50's, center Beta 360 & for the side surrounds I was using a pair of Onkyo SKF 200F's that were originally fronts for a boxed Onkyo surround system, they consist of two 5 1/4 inch woofers & a 1inch soft dome tweeter. When I decided to try the 7,1 setting, for the rear's I used an old pair of Sony's SS-MF500H 3way towers, those were the only speakers I had left outside of my 15 inch Cerwin Vegas 3ways that were in the basement, I originally planned to just hook up the Sony's to see if it was worth using this setting. As it turns out, I not only liked it but I kept it hooked up that way for about 4yrs. I decided that I could get a better look if I retired the Sony towers, not that they sounded bad but just so I wouldn't have two sets of towers in the family room,I also have a Svs PB 12 +2 so you can imagine it was a little crowded in there. I had a friend who bought a center channel by Fluance & he said he liked it so I decided to try the company out. I figured since I'd use the Onkyo's as rears, I'd try the XLBP Bi-polars as sides. I was hesitant when I ordered because I found out that they came in Dark Walnut not black. My speakers are all black,( The Sony's a really really dark grey that looks black),& I didn't want a brownish pair of speakers throwing everything off but the sales rep said that these were very dark walnut so I pulled the trigger & ordered them. After about 3 days they arrived & I hooked then up as sides,moved the Onkyo's to the rear & retired the Sonys. After running Audysse on the receiver I played back some material that I was familiar with to see how they sounded. I wasn't impressed, I couldn't hear the sides like I did before as it was set up. Did I make a mistake by getting these? After about an hour of more detailed listening I discovered that it wasn't that the sides weren't on or audible, it was that these speakers do such a good job of dispersing the sound that I couldn't tell where it was coming from unless I sat right up on them. I was impressed. I then ran them as full range speakers & was blown away about how good the sound. Mind you, they don't put out club type volume but they were as loud as the Sony towers with a little less bass. The XLBP are great for surround but they sound good at full range. Makes me think I wasted these for just surrounds..lol, just kidding, they are Very Good as surround.
