    *** UPDATE *** SOLD!!!

    Hi all, I upgraded my speakers and have 2 pairs of Fluance Bipolar surrounds for sale.

    [​IMG]

    I had these for about 7 months and they sound great. I paid $100 a pair for these plus shipping. They have been only used for surround and have their own mounting brackets and are in great shape. If you want to know what they look like on the wall, please let me know and I will email you a pic.

    I am asking $75 obo a pair shipped or $140 for all 4! I'm only running this till Sunday morning if you're interested, and then off to ebay! Money order via bidpay is cool, or paypal but I hate the surcharge.... [​IMG]

    Here are some details:

    Fluance speakers, the choice for audio enthusiasts around the world, are recognized as an outstanding performance product that delivers amazing sound, superb build-quality and unprecedented value. We have accomplished this by strictly adhering to a single goal:


    Design and engineer speakers that ensure accurate sound reproduction at prices with which none can compete!
    To achieve these goals, Fluance uses high-performance drive units, advanced enclosure technologies and highly refined crossovers to achieve all new standards in sound performance and technological design excellence. The results are clean, undistorted bass, smooth response throughout the midrange, exceptional high frequency resolution, and pinpoint imaging that everyone can appreciate.

    When the principles are applied without compromise, you can close your eyes, open your ears and the speakers disappear . . . now you are at one with the music!

    The Fluance AV-BP2's bipolar design combines excellent diffusion with pinpoint placement of highly localized effects on the surround channels!

    Description
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    The Fluance AV-BP2 tackles the needs of surround speaker design in a usefully different way. It is a bipolar design that combines two identical panels that employ a 4-inch woofer and a 1-inch Neodynium balanced dome tweeter. Its surround ambience is very convincing, thanks to the way the two speaker panels are angled outward to radiate indirectly. But because the speakers are wired in phase, in a bipolar design, they also provide all the localization needed for soundtracks with directional surround effects. The more demanding you are about surround sound, the more we think you will appreciate what the AV-BP2 has to offer. It has top reproduction qualities in the hi-fidelity music as well as the surround sound home theater area and therefore can also be used as a bookshelf speaker. Only premium components such as powerfully dimensioned high-performance magnets and Neodynium tweeters are used in the production of this system. The Neodynium balanced pure silk dome tweeters provide a wonderfully smooth and accurate projection of the high frequency portions of the signal. The result is a pure and perfect listening experience.

    Adrian, I realized that you already sold your Fluance surround speakers. How was these speakers sound compare to the more popular brands like Polk R15 or R20 or Infinity?

    For the money, they sound good. Mostly good for highs and sound crisp. However, they never sounded as good as my Infinity's QPS-1's.

    I decided these bi-poles were not for me and I went with the JBL s36's for surrounds to match my mains since I listen to a lot of rap and do a lot of dvd viewing.
