The results are widespread, enveloping surround sound throughout your room. The XLBP are designed for placement beside or behind the listeners for an extremely convincing 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround ambiance.

    This has been quite the substantial upgrade to my home theater setup. I've been using KLH satellite speakers for years and years that I originally had bought in high school. After taking a serious look at the speakers I currently had I wanted to make some moves and upgrade. Through lots of research on AVS forums and other online sources I ended up among these.

    I currently have a two row seating situation in a finished basement setting so I wanted to accommodate for both rows. This ended up with me looking into the bipolar surround speakers. With the bipolar speakers and the wide dispersion this enabled me to be able to provide a surround sound experience in both the back and the front row.

    I got the package and couldn't believe how large and decently heavy they were. The build and construction was definitely impressive right out of the box. I was excited to get these hooked up. I found the perfect area to mount given the correct measurements where you want to hang them up in your sound stage. Which during mounting I had noticed that they suggest you to hang four dry wall anchors PER speaker. I ended up just hanging two dry wall anchors on the outside holes and they've been up for months and months since then.

    After hooking it all up and hanging them on the wall I've been blown away by the performance of these ever since. I had a Lord of The Rings marathon with these soon thereafter and they performed quite well in both rows. Just the other day however I tuned in my setup even more (Relying on YPAO on my Yamaha receiver wasn't cutting it well) and increased the volume levels all around on the speakers to a more matched dB level in the main listening position. I've watched a good 5-6 movies since then and WOW even more blown away than what I've been missing out on for months since installing them! Surround sound effects have been awesome.

    At $199 the price point is pretty solid for this pair. I have nothing but good things to say about them. I haven't had a lot of experiences with higher quality surround sound driven speakers but they blew those dinky KLH satellites out of the water.

    I got these speakers for my Desktop, Yea I know they are not meant for it but I just wanted to experiment and was getting them at good price. I also got SMSL SA50 (50 Watts per channel x 2) amplifier. As soon as I plugged in I have been blown away with the quality of these. I m hearing on 25% amp power and volume turned 30% on laptop. - Verified Store

    Fluance must be planning some upgrades because these are a steal at the sub hundred price tag... for me these serve to supplement some very high quality speakers... is there a difference between $1000 speakers and $100 speakers? Of course. The highs are higher and lows lower in more expensive ones.But these do exactly what the frequency range says they should - their sound is clear, but rich and full are really the adjectives that come to mind when listening to them as stand alones (I recommend these as a bookshelf speaker - in my case they bridge sound between two rooms sitting on a half wall) - and I haven't yet reached the break in period so the sound will be getting better.The components here are quality so you're getting a speaker that will last for awhile - and at the very least if one upgrades these will always have great value in any surround sound system.Special thanks to Fluance and all the various distributors that work with them for high quality customer service... knowing that anyone on the fence about these or Fluance should take a chance on these, or anything else the company sells. - Verified Store

    Their much bigger then my other set of bipolar surrounds which are made by jamo. The quality and performance is very good for the money probably the best bang for your buck that you can find. Free shipping i ordered yesterdat and it arrived super fast overnight 1 day shipping cant be beat. The 4 star is because the vinyl veneer isnt the best and looks very thin. The gloss black paint looks super cheap and get fingerprints all over it but honestly on eog the worst gloss black paimt jobs i have seen on a speaker. My kanto bluetooth speaker black gloss finish is much nicer and more refined. The other annoyance was the mounting brackets on the back they didnt supply any screws and was pretty hard to install ended up scratching the black bracket becausr the screws i were using were to big. But to sum it up pretty good experience the price was affordable the quality is good the shipping in my experience was lightning fast and the trial period give you the confidence to take thr plunge to order. Dont hesistate best price to performance ratio for surrounds in my oppinion.

    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.

    Nice speakers came double boxed and needed it. These are quality speakers for the mid part of your Home Theater. Probably will buy another set for my other system. Check your dimensions these are small light speakers but nice size for larger systems. Cabinets are fantastic. -Verified Store
