    With its quad 5-inch woofers and 1-inch silk dome tweeter covering the top half of the loudspeaker, the 51-inch tall Fluance ES1 tower speaker system is anything but vertically challenged. The ES1's produce an excellent soundstage, and ability to play cleanly at high SPL, though with a bit too lively treble at times. Paired with a subwoofer, the ES1 tower speakers shine as an attractive and affordable home theater main loudspeaker with superb build quality and aesthetics for a reasonable asking price.

    Interesting review, thx Joel


    It seems like they put some high quality parts in here, but the cabinet rings like a bell, referring to the Cumulative spectral decay
    I think they should find a way to better damp the Aluminimum


    So significant ringing at 25dB+ must be very audible.....


    I would not consider a speaker like this....

    Acoustic Guitar Size Reference

    Thanks for giving us a size reference with your Fender acoustic. An interesting choice for an audiophile, care to share how you selected that piece of gear? I'm no snob, I play a Sigma with a Fishman Natural II pickup and d"Addario EXP Phosphor Bronze medium gauge strings.

    Well, my first loudspeaker didn't sound too good either:) It was given to me as a Xmas present several years ago. It sits around as something someone who knows what they are doing with a guitar can play with. I haven't dedicated enough time to become good enough at guitar to warrant something more expensive; I need that money for more stereo equipment!
