Overview

SX6-BK Bookshelf Surround Sound Speakers Intro

Featuring a contemporary design and exciting audio performance, the SX6 is a flawlessly made two-way speaker system. With remarkable reproduction of even the finest details, the SX6 is a highly accurate and intensely musical system with broad frequency response and low distortion. While digital audio formats demand a new level of performance, these speakers are built for the task! With superb sound radiation and rich timbre, the SX6 is perfect for music and home theater applications. Even at high volume levels, the acoustic image remains free from cabinet vibrations and driver resonances.

SX6-BK Bookshelf Surround Sound Speakers for Home Theater

The bookshelf design allows for multiple placement options, and in a home theater surround sound application, the SX6 speakers produce exceptional sound, and can operate as front main or rear surround speakers. Thanks to its distinct design and premium natural beech finish, this system harmonizes perfectly with modern living areas. By virtue of the tuned bass reflex cabinet, the SX6 produces an outstanding and precise performance for its compact design. Only premium components such as high-end tweeters - rare in speakers at this price - and high-performance magnets are used in this system. The result is a pure listening experience that represents a new standard in audio accuracy, craftsmanship and quality.

    I am pleasantly surprised with these speakers. Didn't really expect too much giving the price point but i'll tell ya I was wrong in thinking that. These are a tremendous value! To the other high end speaker manufactures ( under $500 range )..... how do you say....Je te verrai plus tard.

    I've had just the opposite experience. .when I received the speakers they sounded actually very good but as time went on and even after the break in period the sound quality deteriorated lucky for me i got em on sale

    Jerry December 8, 2016 California

    GREAT Bargain. Order the speaker and give it at LEAST 40 hours of break in time before you make up your mind. At first tweeter is very shrill and woofer is nonexistent, but wait, it will sound terrific in time. Its very efficient and provides a wide range sound stage. Don't plan on hearing much bass bump from your disco albums, or low end synthesizer on your Manheim Steamroller cds unless you add a subwoofer. At low volumes though these speakers sound great with jazz, classical, rock, blues, etc. A definite buy at this price.

    Extremely satisfied for the 2nd time around. No need to be an expert to feel the built and componentsquality these SX6 are putting up. And the price.., I must thank you.

    I consider myself to be something of a "practical audiophile" in that I'm pretty picky about sound and such but I don't believe in spending truckloads of money to put together a decent sounding system. I prefer stereo sound over the N.1 systems and I don't go in for all this $100 USB cable stuff as some perfectionists do. A good system at a good price is just what I want. For me a good speaker is one that reproduces the full range of sound it is asked to reproduce without inserting itself into the equation... you want to listen to the music, not the speakers.

    The packaging ... These speakers arrived in a triple box. Amazon took the double box from Fluance and put it into another box, making it just big enough to be really hard to carry... and these are relatively heavy speakers. Good protection, but not so good when you got to lug them up to the 6th floor.

    General... These are big speakers and they are rather heavy for their size. They are much bigger than any I've had before with 5 1/4" woofers in them. The cabinets appear to be of reasonable quality. They are 7/16" MDF particle board (that's good, btw) and covered in a wood-look vinyl finish. The overall cabinet assembly is quite nice.

    Screws ... When I get something that is made in China the first thing I usually do is check all the screws to be sure they are properly tightened. In this case it's a good thing I did as both speakers had loose screws on the woofer and the connector panel at the back. No problem, I just tweaked them a little with my screwdriver to even out the tension. (If you do this on your set, don't get carried away, those screws are in MDF and they're not all that big, it would be very easy to strip them if you aren't careful.)

    The Grills ... The front grills are simple wooden frames with cloth stretched over them. When I unpacked my set the grills were dirty with some kind of white powder so I gently rubbed them down with a dry sponge to clean them. Once they're cleaned they look ok. The Fluance logos at the bottom had a bunch of rough edges on the letters --probably from stamping the silver plating onto them-- a couple of gentle passes with a sanding sponge took care of that very nicely. These grills fit over the holding posts on the speaker boxes quite tightly. It would not be a good idea to simply grab them and pull them off. I eased them off and on during testing by pressing or pulling firmly on each corner in turn and letting them find the own speed.

    Burn in ... I've seen a couple of reviews where these speakers were panned as lacking bass. Right out of the box they certainly do lack any kind of reasonable bass, leading me to initially conclude they were never intended as full range speakers. In fact I've never seen a set of speakers that needed the "burn in" period as badly as these did. About 12 hours on they started sounding better... and two days in they're sounding pretty good.

    Speaker wire... During the recommended 10 hour burn in period I hooked them up using the bargain basement 24ga speaker wire. Now, having moved them to my main system where they are hooked up with 18ga wire, I can tell you that in this case the wire definitely makes a big difference.... as in "Woah, where'd all that bass come from?"

    Listening Impression ... These speakers sound pretty good when set on my media credenza. They sound like crap on stands (as full range speakers) and even worse on a shelf where they end up being boxed in. They appear to need some breathing room behind them, delivering the best sound when positioned about 6" from the wall behind them. With the grills off, these speakers are annoyingly "sibilant" every little hissed S or popped P is clearly audible.. With the grills on that goes completely away (apparently they are not totally transparent). The bass and midrange are both handled by the same speaker, which after a proper burn in does an acceptable job... If you're looking to get kicked in the gut by the bass, these are not your speakers. But if you are looking for easy listening with good overall sound, I think you'll like them well enough. Overall, these are very clear and precise speakers. The sound is pleasant although sometimes a little too bright for my tastes.... Maybe they need a little extra burn in time.

    About that base plate... The base plate these speakers stand on is a dusting disaster and, yes, for those who are wondering it can be removed. There are 4 screws on the bottom. Undoing them will let you take the base off. Then comes a nice surprise... the 4 silver disks are actually non-slip feet so you may want to flip them over and run the screws back into the boxes, as I did. Surprisingly (or should I say "mysteriously") they actually sound better without the base plate attached... the lower base is much improved, at least in my living room and, of course now you can dust under them.

    I like these speakers. Overall I'll give them 4 stars... To get the 5th star, I would suggest Fluance loose the base plate and put the money into an actual 6" woofer, which I think would be a better match with that tweeter.

    Just wonderful all the way around. I need more of them ASAP.

    Mick Houston November 20, 2015

    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.

    these are breaking in VERY nicely!!! I'm using them exclusively in my "man cave vinyl listening room" and they handle most LPs quite nicely. for my purposes, at this stage, I am completely satisfied with the speakers neutrality, reproduction and of course PRICE! will prolly look to upgrading at some point and Fluance will be high on my list to consider for higher end speakers. Well done!! Oh, the transaction, shipping and deliver (extremely well packaged) were exceptional. Two thumbs waaaaaay up. Now spinning /// Pablo Cruise - Part of the Game (1979) {A&M Records SP-3712}. sooo good!

    Short: These are great, easily compare with much more expensive speakers and look pretty good as well.

    Long: Ran across a couple of reviews on these (Zeos being the main one) with a bonus of being a Canadian company. Purchased a set as a test before possibly buying a surround set. Even right out the box they sound great at low and high volume with a variety of music from classical to classic rock to electronic and pop. Have them hooked up with a Class D amp. The same amp with a different set of speakers sounded almost muddy, and flat. I've recommended them to friends and family since.

    Matt S November 20, 2015

    r/Zeos sent me. Another satisfied customer, replaced my Energy Take 5.1 fronts with SX6 and have noticed a huge boost in stereo performance.

    My only gripe with the SX6 is that there's no matching centre. Fluance PLEASE make a SX6C with the same tweeter and drivers as the SX6, OR sell single SX6 speakers. I'm facing having to buy a second pair and only using one of them as a matching centre channel.

    I've been looking for great budget bookshelf speakers for a while now. I started with daytons b652 then micca mb42x (great for the price btw). My friend has the Pioneer sp-bs22-lr (also very good), but at this price point the SX6 just blow all these completely out of the water. I'm not an audiophile by any means but I can definitely hear a good speaker when I hear one. Following zeospantera advice on Reddit I was torn between the Teac LS-H265b and these, so I bought both :). I have a large room to fill and the SX6 are better suited than the Teac. Actually, all around I prefer the SX6 to any speaker I've listen to in a long time. For the price or even double, I don't think anything could compare, and I'm still breaking them in. Awesome product, quick delivery and great packaging. I'm completely sold on these!

    Matt V November 20, 2015

    I'm very happy with these. They are well made and sound great. Very well packaged (something that seems to be lacking these days) I ended up matching them up with a HSU sub but if Fluance subs are as good as these bookshelf speakers I will definitely be looking to buy one of those when I am in the market for a new one. You can't go wrong with these.

    The only small criticism I would have is that it took a while for me to get them.

    I was looking to finally downsize to bookshelf from the massive box 15-inch woofer three way speakers I have owned since the late 1970’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.
