Fluance is a speaker manufacturer based in Ontario, Canada. They have been around since 1999, but, I admit, they were a new name to me when I received an email from their very diligent PR person asking if I was interested in reviewing one of their products. One look at the product line, and the amazingly modest pricing, led me to immediately reply in the affirmative.
Before we get into the XL7F's interesting design, let's take a quick look at what Fluance touts as its “premium” features:
The speakers are outfitted with a 1-inch silk dome neodymium tweeter, two 6.5-inch midrange drivers in separate enclosures and, interestingly, a downward-firing 8-inch woofer. The speaker covers the 45 Hz to 20 Khz range, is stated to have a sensitivity of 89 db, with published impedance specs of “4-8 Ohms”. The most intriguing, and unusual, aspect of the design is the crossover point, which is 800/3500 Hz.
The speakers are packed well, and impressively made, for this price point. They measure almost 46 inches high and are just over 45 Lbs each in weight. The Mahogany finish is very nice indeed. Dark Walnut is also available. Taking a close look at the drivers and binding posts, everything was cleanly assembled.
