    I purchased these speakers about a year ago and they are great. I did NOT use the speaker wire that came with them (too thin) but instead I used 16 gauge Sony speaker wire (makes a huge difference in sound reproduction.) I also have the Sony SA-W2500 Subwoofer connect with these as well to a Sony A/V receiver. Each tower speaker is getting 90 watts RMS which I believe is what is recommended from Sony.

    These speakers rock! I don't even know if I needed the subwoofer because they do produce some pretty good bass, but I love listening to music and watching movies so the sub does help. The range on these speakers is quite impressive. From bass tones to high notes they do a wonderful job on producing the sound with great clarity. They also look great too. My wife was worried about having big speakers in the room and drawing the focus away from everything else, but even she loves having them.

    For the size of these speakers and the price (I paid almost $40 more a year ago) these have the most bang for your buck. I was pleasantly surprised when I connected them a year ago and I still stand by my decision today. In fact, love them so much I bought a pair for my father to replace his old worn out tower speakers. He says they're half the size with twice the power. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

    Sony SS-F6000: Surprisingly Good Speakers
    4.0 stars
    Strengths: high-quality sound, affordable
    Limitations: low sensitivity, awkward connection posts
    I have not come across another speaker set that can beat these for the price. By my measurements their frequency response falls well within +/-3db from 90hz to 20Khz. The response falls off at about 6db/octave below 80hz. It works smoothly with my Sony subwoofer to give a +/-3db response from 25hz to 20Khz that is sufficient for the wide variety of music I listen to. It has very good clarity, beating out most of the more expensive speakers I have compared it to.
    As other reviewers have pointed out, make sure to break the speakers in by playing them for at least a day at moderate volume. My initial impression was that the speakers were only fair, but they sounded considerably better after a few weeks. Speaker placement is also important. They give the truest response when place at least two feet from walls. Moving them closer to a wall increases the bass response up to a factor of two (6db).
    But its low sensitivity of 89db means it won't be acceptable to everyone. To sound similar to more efficient speakers with 98db sensitivity, you have to turn up the volume by a factor of three. In practice, this can lead to a volume mismatch in a home theater system with efficient satellite speakers. In an audio system, higher volume settings can make hum and distortion noticeable, as it did on one of my older stereos. It is awkward and difficult to insert wires and tighten the posts. The speaker connection posts are best suited for banana plugs.
    My wife and I bought a small investment property several years ago that contains eight rooms and a former recording studio. The studio measures 40 by 50 feet, has acoustic tile on the walls and ceiling, and has a raised floor that is covered with thick carpet. We decided to set the studio aside for our use. Since my wife and many of our family and friends are musicians or are involved in recording music, the studio is a great place for them to listen to their recordings, practice, or test their music systems. I have used it to do a number of tests on speakers, ranging from a classic pair of AR-3a's to yard-sale speakers to Klipsch reference speakers. While good headphones produce the truest sound, good speakers let you feel the music.
    I am not an audiophile, and I don't have the best hearing, so I like to depend on measurements followed up by impressions from musicians. I have very good, well-calibrated sound level meters and a number of test tone resources that include fixed tones, frequency sweeps, and pink noise bands. One of my amplifiers has outputs for four sets of speakers, three combinations of speaker sets, and a subwoofer. I can also use a speaker on one channel and switch speakers on the other channel to directly compare different speakers. You quickly learn that +/-3db response for two different speakers does not guarantee that they will sound the same. Each speaker has distinctive resonant and interference frequencies that show up in measurements and result in different sound coloration (warmth, presence, brilliance, clarity).
    I personally like the technical measurement part of speaker comparisons, which show what a speaker is capable of in a sterile acoustic environment. Family and friends help me out on the subjective listening part. The Sony SS-F6000 speakers did well in both categories. For best results, I used a Sony subwoofer set with a crossover frequency of 50hz and adjusted the volume to get the best bass response. A bass guitarist played some of his recordings and said it felt like he was back in his sessions. Now your room acoustics and speaker placement will no doubt give you different results. I can only say that in a sterile environment, the Sony SS-F6000 speakers compared favorably with some fairly expensive and well-respected speakers.
    Pink noise tests were repeated, averaged, and normalized for both the right and left channels to get the results summarized below. The variation in measurements was less than +/-0.5db.

        I currently have 3 sets of these speakers and they are truly amazing. The clarity you get out of these speakers rivals vastly more expensive brands like Klipsch. I use them in a home theater environment and they perform excently, but they truly excel at reproducing music. They will blow your mind!

          Comments about Sony SS-F6000 4-Way Floor-Standing Speaker:

          I replaced my small front speakers and sub with these when my old JVC sub started making weird noises and they sound really good. The bass isn't rattle the rafters good, but since I live in an apartment, the bass is more than adequate. The only complaint I might have is that the mids could be a bit a stronger, but since my Sony receiver is also new, I may just need to do more tweaking to take them very good to great. I would recommend these to anyone with a smaller space to fill where boom-boom bass isn't necessarily welcomed by the neighbors.

            I am using them as front left and right speakers in a 7.1 setting in the basement home theater with Pioneer VSX-921K. The results are absoutely amazing. For this price this pair should get more than 5 stars. There sure are better speakers out there but not in this price range, not by far.Very good frequency response across the full range with solid bass.

              This was my first attempt at putting together a HT system. Most of my components are discontinued or low value products. My AV is an Onkyo TX-SR608. The Sony SS-F6000 4-way (Fronts) are set at 40Hz, a Polk PSW-505 sub is set at 120Hz, a set of cheap Dayton Center, surrounds, and wides are set at 150 Hz. After a few months of use, these speakers perform quite well. Using the AV's many listening modes and the Audyssey equalizer, one can color the music or dialog to one's taste. Now that I have integrated a brand new Samsung 55 inch LED HDTV for Christmas. I am very satisfied with my home theater setup. Sure, later I am going try different speakers, but I'm OK for now. I can shake the house, movie dialog is nice and clear. Plus, the Sony SS-F6000 produce a nice bass with the help of the sub.

                Comments about Sony SS-F6000 4-Way Floor-Standing Speaker:

                Having just down sized my living room, I wanted a set of speakers that went well with my flat screen LED and Sony receiver. I also had a Soundbar and sub with this system. So I decided on the SS-F6000 and it has worked out perfectly. The sound is tremendous as long as you have a sub pushing it. It compliments the Soundbar wonderfully. Watching movies and just regular TV shows, you get great sound. If you wish to go middle of the row on price, between the 5000 and 7000, these are the speakers to go with. You will not be disappointed. Remember, you must have a sub to really get a great sound out of them.

                  You cant get a better deal than this for under $150.
                  These are perfect for small - medium sized rooms. I probably would not use them as primary speakers on my higher end TV. Even though the Sound output is good.

                    I can't believe the quality of these speakers for the excellent price I paid. Very happy. Fill in my fronts really well, combined with a sub they sound amazing.

                      I bought these speakers to replace the old bulky ones I had for years. After some on-line research and reviews, and on the advice of my son-in-law who is all into music and sound, I decided on these speakers. In comparison to other sites offering the same speakers, the price was right[...]Also a plus, they take up less space and upgrade the look of my room. The sound is incredible, clear and solid, and I play my music loud. I am totally satisfied with this product.

                      I purchased these as the front left/right speakers to go along with my new Sony 7.1 receiver. I am very impressed with the sound these speakers provide. There is so much more detail that I notice compared to the small speakers that came with the old Sony Dream System all-in-one DVD receiver that my new equipment replaces. This is especially true for stereo music that doesn't rely on the center speaker.

                      I would have expected to pay over $400 for speakers this size that sound like this. Probably the only weakness is bass. It's there, but not very powerful. I have a Sony 150 Watt powered subwoofer, so this doesn't bother me. But at this price, I can't believe the value I got. I highly recommend them to anyone looking at building a new home theater on a budget! I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. An added bonus: they look great.

                        [...].Setup was very quick,took me about ten minutes to connect the speakers to my receiver.I ran a sound calibration test with the mic provided with my receiver, have to make sound minor adjustments to the EQ to get them just right.For what I paid for the speakers I am very happy with my purchase.

                          Added them to my surround in the living room. It was a major difference. Cant find that many speakers for such a little price. They look good too.
