Fluance Signature Series Tower Speakers. ⭐️⭐️⭐️½
20 years with this hobby I had at least 10 pairs of tower speakers in the past including electrostatic speakers.
These got to be lowest priced and biggest tower speakers.
I received these speakers from UPS without a scratch thanks to protective packing with durable double box.
Unpacking is not that hard but not easy either but I did manage to get the big fat towers out without hurting my back, comes with good quality steel outriggers with height adjustable spikes.
Fit & Finish is really good for $700 price tag,which isn't much for a pair of full range floor standers.
In fact it is cheap enough for the quality because floor standers in this price range are a messed.
My best friend came by yesterday and he thought I went crazy and bought another pair of speakers that I don't really need, he guessed it at $1,500 each and when I say how much I paid for the speakers his jaw dropped and raised his eye brows and said "WOW! Thats so little money for what I'm seeing." That was it!
Also, he likes the sound of these speakers, if I don't keep them he is going to take them over from me for his HT.
As of today Fluance Signature Towers are about 50+hours of playing time, it seems to settle down and starting to show true color, The sound is not bad at all for the price, especially bass is really good, goes lower than a lot of more expensive speakers I've heard but for me mid range is not good for my music listening, not enough precision or authority for the size of the towers.
Highs are another story, out of the box it was so bright that I have to turn it down, I was playing DireStraits "Brothers in Arm" SACD. It is somewhat revealing that poor recording will suffer from shallow shrilling highs but sometimes it can get bright even with good recording, Jazz is ok, not so much with Metallica music but club music sounded like I was in da club yo!
These can play loud, I was able to take them over 100db+ on my Nady Audio SPL meter, my Halo P-5 volume control knob set at 12 o'clock and A-21 was manhandling with ease.
These are good for the people who are not picky(No Audiophiles) and will get a lot for a little money especially for HT duties. These are not giant killers like everyone is hoping on internet forums but it is truly remarkable speakers for the price, good quality product with overall acceptable good sound for the price.
I think these can be improve a lot by simply replacing with high quality crossover parts but I will be calling my friend to pick them up next week.
Midrange is the most dissatisfying and deal breaker for me.
Pros: Big Speakers For Little Money.
Cons: Can get edgy and bright, un-evolving midrange.
