Excerpt: We used these speakers at a film festival with about 100 plus people. Room was about 20 foot wide by 130 feet long. The sound was excellent although some of the finer sounds were barely audible but overall the range was good. The bass was excellent to the extent we only needed these two speakers and nothing else.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Set Up, Good bass overall sound, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I would be the first to echo other reviews that say...for the price they sound very good! They do. Here comes the however! The wood (if it is wood) cabinet will not stand up to any abuse and will chip with easy. The plastic feet are not made to handle the weight of the speakers so be care when you have to move them to vacuum, etc.
Excerpt: Perfect in a small living room under 15 X 20. (My other reviews from the day should also have shown 15 X 20 instead of 10 X 20.) I am glad I didn't get the F5000 smaller floor speakers. These are just perfect. They require some break-in, so allow amble weeks of use to gain full appreciation of quality. Spend the money... You will not be dissappointed in this quality level of speaker.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy to Mount, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Bought these speakers as an upgrade from some no name tower speakers, for my pioneer reciver. These sonys are some great speakers, i have them in my 10 by 12 bed room. The bass these things can produce by them self if very very good, i was very surprised by how much they produced, you would only need a powered sub if they were in a big living room or , the mids are wonderful, the highs tend to scare me tho on some songs, i tend to liste to them really loud and on certin...
Summary: I got these speakers a few months ago and I am very pleased with all aspects of them. The sound is clear and clean. They are the perfect addition to our home theater. In addition to movies we enjoy a wide range of music on them as well. I was a bit skeptical about them at first because of the size of the woofers and was concerned with the lower end of the bass spectrum but these speakers definatly perform.
Excerpt: I use the speakers in a carpeted living room with a fair amount of furniture. If you are sitting with both speakers pointed directly at you they sound great. But if you stand up or walk around the room they lose much of their clarity. If you want to fill a room with crisp sound these may fall a bit short.
Summary: I recently wanted to upgrade my Polk R30s to get a larger sound stage so I purchased the Sony SS-F7000. After replacing them I felt like the new speakers were actually worse than my $100 pair Polks. So I hooked them both to my receiver for an A-B test (Panasonic SA-XR57 with Dual Amp configuration, subwoofer disabled, large configuration, and stereo test. Its known for its high end clarity due to being a digital amp).
Summary: Great speaker. However if your a true classical music audiophile, you could benefit from a subwoofer in your system to fill out the very low resonant frequencies not merely of the bass, but the cellos as well. I don't fault these woofers. They give excellent response to the high end of the low end. They just work best with a woofer that covers the really low end better. Now a message for Sony if they monitor these customer reviews. Please improve the packaging.
Excerpt: I have these as part of complete Sony 7.1 A/V system and they compare as equals with Polk, Klipsch, and other brands that cost 3 to 4 times as much. I am completely satisfied and have no negative comments.
