OverviewSpecificationsCustomer ReviewsRecommended Accessories
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.

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 black ash 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.

Already owning a 5.1 system used primarily for movies, I often find myself retreating to a room I have 2 channel stereo systems in to listen to my favorite music. My two 2 channel music systems consist of a Yamaha R-S700 receiver, a matching Yamaha single disc CD player, a Technics SL-1310 turntable, and bi-wired Jamo C803s. I also have a David Hafler 9300 power amp running through a DH-110 preamp. It's on this latter system where I play an inordinate number of and variety of different stand mounted bookshelf speakers going through a Jamo 6 speaker switch box. You may by now think me crazy to own so many different speakers but I equate the diversity of the speakers I own with how my mood is in at a certain time. Think of it like this; sometimes I want the warmth of a steaming cup of rich brewed coffee, sometimes I want the deep seated passion of a glass of Merlot, and yet sometimes I just want the simple fun of a good beer. That's where my choice in speakers have evolved in my 45 years pursuing my audio hobby. I bought the Fluance SX6 speakers in ash black from the Fluance website as kind of an impulse-buy after seeing them featured in some online speaker forum posts and wondering how good a pair of speakers in the $100 to $130 range could be. With an online coupon from Fluance as well and being able to play them for 30 days with a full refund if I didn't like what I heard I found it difficult to not pull the trigger on them. I've been playing them for about 20 to 30 hours or so at moderate level and have decided at this point to keep them. Are they the best speakers I own? No they're not. They have limitations. But at around a hundred bucks they should be expected to have some limitations. What they are however are 'fun' speakers. Using my coffee, Merlot wine, beer analogy I mentioned previously they fall well within my range of emotions in what I want some of the different genres of music I have to sound like at different times. If I could describe them with one word it would be 'lively'. The highs are crisp yet un-fatiguing, the mid range while admittedly not as smooth and rich as some of my more expensive speakers doesn't disappoint. The bass is surprisingly punchy when positioned properly and the imaging is quite astonishing for bookshelf speakers at their price point. While they will never replace my vintage Alon Petites, Lil' Rascals, or AR3a models I own or supplant my Paradigm Studio 20s, Jamo C803s or KEFs, they solidly hold their own among my collection of other bookshelves too numerous to mention. I'm more than proud to feature them when friends visit to ask what I've been listening to and through what speakers lately. I read that someone complained about the highs being too bright for their taste and he replaced the woofer with an after market model. I don't agree with this method at all as there's more to a speaker's chemistry than just arbitrarily replacing drivers. You have to consider crossover specs and impedance of the replacement woofer or you can do more sonic harm than good. What I did do however was to add felt diffraction rings to the tweeter fascia which helped defuse some of the cymblance encountered on some female voice and some acoustic guitar selections I played. After addition of the diffraction rings the speakers seemed to disappear into a fuller sound stage. With the plethora of modern new speakers in the SX6's price range I'll not try to persuade anyone into believing these will be perfect for them as choosing speakers is very subjective and what one person may like another may not but with a lifetime warranty if bought from Fluance directly and a 30 day return policy they're difficult to ignore at their price and not at least audition in your own home. I bought them to try them as I figured I had nothing to lose and have since decided to add them to my system. If you're looking for aesthetically pleasing bookshelf speakers that sound good over a wide range of musical genres however my advice would be to take advantage of the Fluance home audition offer and give them a try. I think like me you might be glad you did.
