SoundStageHifi.com Review of the Fluance XL7F Floorstanding Loudspeakers

"The Fluance XL7F is an incredible value that’s worth every cent of $499.99/pair -- and far more. In fact, Fluance could easily raise the speaker’s price by quite a bit and still be offering the deal of the year. (But if you don’t tell them, I won’t.)"

I bought these as part of a new system set up I put together, Yaqin mc-13s plus Yaqin phone pre amp plus Sony sacd plus TN-350 TT. The Sound of these speakers is just amazing, they fill the room with a presence sine qua non.

Randal Clark April 4, 2019 Audiophile - 20+ Years New Brunswick, Canada

I give these speakers a 5 for their category and for their Fluance in producing music the way I like to hear it; as it was played!! I have owned Klipsch; polk and paradigm towers over the past 3 years with retail prices much higher than the Fluance. Every manufacturer makes a different sound impression and I would be able to pick out the Fluance for their clarity and oomph! I power these beauties with a 500W Rotel two channel amp and it is Glorious.

Ray j November 28, 2018 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Georgia, United States

I just got these a week ago. I am running them with onkyo TX-NR777 in stereo.trust the manual. They do need some time to break in. So far they sound great and are sounding better every day. Build quality is excellent. I have been listening to Cerwin Vegas the last 20 years and I have had enough of in-your-face highs and mids. The 7’s are much more laid back. The highs are rolled off but still sound great. I have 2 Polk psw111’s in the room which is approx 20x 20 ft. All together sounds phenomenal. You will need some power to get the most out of these. At least 100 wpc. I highly recommend.

I have a pair for almost 2 years and is a great speakers for the price, but.....need more resolution! Great mids, the bass need more presence. Very well build for this level . I recomend.

Short Version: I’ve had them for over a year now I love them. They’re big awkward to move but they’re beautiful pieces of furniture and they make a statement. The sound is big also these are truly loudspeakers. Buy a receiver that weighs more than 20 pounds to power them. Now the long version:
Design:
This is what got me to buy this speaker.
Each speaker has two separate chambers. The lower section of the speaker is a rear ported chamber with a down firing woofer the top sealed chamber has two mid ranges flanking a silk dome tweeter. They are tall narrow deep and heavy. Might not be good in homes with toddlers or rowdy people. Though the floor spikes do a good job of anchoring each speaker to my carpeted floor. Honestly they do sit pretty solid.
Appearance:
The front piano black finish is mirror like and the mahogany wrap on the body looks great. You won’t mistake them for real wood veneer but the quality is evident. Wife approved. it seems they’re also stylish floor standing shelves. These speakers make a statement about how you feel about sound.
Note: I havent shaken anything off the speakers yet I’ve tried out of curiousity.
Sound:
They work well with movies and music. I’d describe the sound as warm with a slight emphasis on the mid bass. The down firing woofer makes for a large sound stage. They have a unique sound. On Ted Nugents riffs I could hear the notes moving up and down the speaker (these puppies are tall). Adele’s Hello plays to these speakers strengths if you’re a fan you’ll get a shiver.. Some cons are: Dialogue is a little muddied and the bass can fall apart on the deepest tones (think kettle drum). My receiver lets me dial them in though It’s a nice piece of kit itself. As noted above These are old school style loudspeakers. Volume in a medium size room is not an issue.
Setup:
Pair of XL7F’s powered by an Onkyo TX series receiver pushing 100w/channel that weighs 23# highly recommended. Source is a home built HTPC (unreal what it will do). Simple but powerful.
Other Thoughts:
Ain’t no good video reviews on these speakers. The written review by Audioholics is very thorough and finally convinced me to buy them. Pay attention to the section about unpacking them it made my life easier. I used 12 awg wire (overkill but cheap on sale) and banana plugs for connectors (recommended). I had to expand the plugs on the banana plugs so they fit tightly into the speakers.
I also read every review on amazon and several pro reviews before purchasing these. I’m still very happy. - Verified Store

Read the reviews and made the plunge buying four of the speakers. Added two subwoofers and have a stereo that will rattle every window in the house. Quality speakers! I have had them for over a year and still am very happy with my decision to purchase them. You will not be disappointed. - Verified Store

Harsha V April 15, 2018

I bought this for my apartment but it was way too much for my tiny place both in terms of size and sound. Fluance's support was amazing enough to help me through the returns process. Will definitely be getting this once I have my own place. The few weeks I had it I absolutely loved it. Could improve the midtones but can't really complain for the price. The downfiring speakers pack a punch though. Absolutely love the pearly white look with the screens off. - Verified Store

J'ai reçu mes xlf7f aujourd'hui. Merci à Shop Tronic pour la livraison rapide.Ces enceintes xlf7f sont bien construites et de grande qualité.je suis vraiment content de la sonorité de ces hauts-parleurs même si le processus de Breakin ne fait que commencer. Après 10 heures de breakin la sonorité et l'équilibre sera encore meilleure. Le subwoofer de 8 pouces donne de belles basses bien équilibrées avec l'ensemble .Vraiment je recommande ces hauts-parleurs Fluance xl7f sans hésitation. - Verified Store

James February 28, 2018

Speakers are truly amazing for the price. They really show what they got at high volume. What they say about the 10 hour 'Break in period' is true. Straight out of the box its missing the low end and some mids. Its my third day of use and they are really coming to life. Fluance website recommends to turn up the volume enough to visually see the speakers move. It helps loosen up the glue/rubber. After breaking in they are Amazing! - Verified Store

At first I was a little disappointed but after a lengthy listening session I realized I wasn't getting tired of the sound. Listening fatigue often sets in with other speakers but not these. The sound is very good for a pair of $500 speakers. They needed just a little extra bump on the low end so after adding a modest subwoofer all is good.

They look great as well. Slightly more imposing than desired but not too bad. - Verified Store
