Packaging and fit/finish are impressive. Initially a bit muddy, as one would expect, but as it broke in, I kept tweaking settings (ex levels, crossover points, etc.) and things have settled down now. I've offloaded the lions share of the base handling duties to this thing. The rest of my speakers (some old Bose 901s in front, a Boston center, and a Fluance bipolar surrounds) can concentrate on reproducing the mids and highs, because this thing is producing amazing noises below 160 Hz.
I'm not typically a fan of huge bass, but the Fluance sub's crisp and clear sound has me adding a little more...and a little bit more.
All the details seem right too - connector hardware, feel of the balance and crossover knobs, etc.
A while back I started to build up my stereo system so I could finally listen to my vinyl again. I bought Klipsch RP600M speakers, the Fluance RT85 turntable, and paired it with an older Yamaha amp. Given the abuse my 63-year-old ears took decades ago this I knew I didn't want to blast my music (not to mention I don't need to annoy my neighbors (I live in a small apartment with neighbors on either side). I'd heard the Klipsch might be a bit 'bright' sounding (code for not super base?). And after about 2 weeks I saw that while the Klipsch has great detail and expansive sound stage I was forced to use the EQ to bring up the base on base centric music such as Mingus and Thundercat. So I went to the forums and asked for recommendations for a sub that sounded good a lower (40% range) volumes. Once the laughter subsided and a few 'That's an oxymoron man! you can't have both base and low volumes'. But I kept researching and eventually ran across this Fluance DB10W 10-inch sub. The price was right, it has a good set of controls and connection variety (important for my older amp). So I tried it. Within 24 hours of setting it up I knew I'd found what I needed and Fluance once again hit the mark! Thank you Fluance both for the turntable and the sub.
(btw... at the risk of being a noob... what is 'Sheerness' I didn't give the sub a ratting on that because I don't know what it means, does it mean sharpness, definition, clarity, transparency, brightness... once again does the language of audio fall short? :) )
Sub is very well made the wood and finish is very clean. The sound is very clean and powerful. You have to do some adjusting with the settings on your AV tuner and try to match it with the volume control and frequency selector you want. I'm using a Yamaha RX-V381 5.1 Receiver and had a lot of tweaking to be made with the DB's and speaker levels. My other speakers are the Infinity Reference R1 old school Center, R Tower, L Tower and 2 Fluance Bi-Polar Rear Surrounds. My room is about 20' x 35', I got this this on Reverse Polarity and my room is filled with bass all over. Very nice for the price and beats a lot of expensive Woofers out there!
Yay: Price. High level inputs. Auto on/off. Nay: Literally nothing at this price-point. This is a fantastic value. Meh: 45w amp
Ideal for: Small to medium sized rooms this is frickin champion. Anything larger and you will have to go to the 12"
My usage: I use this to fill in the bottom end on a pair of Kef Q100's. The sound is natural and feels balanced. Live recordings in particular have more presence. After tweaking the low pass filter this delivers enough punch for rock records. Really shines on hip hop and electronic
Am using in a 14x16 room with 9 foot ceiling. This sub does exactly what i need it to and sounds really good doing it. I am using this sub in a 5.1 system at the moment (will be ordering a second db10 in the future) with a Denon s930h, Fluance Signature Center channel, Swan/HiVi 3.1 DIYs as front channels and Fluance Signature Series Bookshelf as rear/surround channel. While the Swan/HiVi 3.1 DIYs have some beautiful low end themselves the db10 fills in the holes it needs to and does it really well while looking very good nice doing it.
Very happy with this purchased. I use this subwoofer as my main and I use my original subwoofer as my secondary. Now all my movies, games and TV shows have twice the BOOM!!!!! Anyone out there looking for affordable Subwoofer....this Fluance DB10 is it.
I've been using Kanto YU2 speakers for computer audio for a few years, and have found the low-end lacking. I chose the DB10 due to other reviews suggesting that it worked well at reaching very low frequencies, and have found that it does indeed cover a wide gamut of the lower frequency spectrum. Sound quality seems excellent to my ear, and with the crossover and volume controls I can easily tune output to match the style of music I'm listening to. Since I tend to listen to music at low-to-moderate volumes, I don't know how well the speaker performs at higher volume, but would confidently recommend this product for casual listeners looking to supplement an existing desktop audio system.
If you're looking for A lot of sound in your house Then this delivers it is quiet until it Has been broken in after a brakes in it is a good quality of sound bass and power You might have to adjust a little bit and tweak with your stereo and the subal for but once you find the right settings you'll enjoy what you Pay for
Fluance is probably the manufacturer that stands out the most in terms of quality and price! Very difficult to beat. I got myself 2 DB10 subwoofers and all I can say is this: Efficiency, quality and exactly what I expected. Combined with my Anthem receiver and the Elac front speakers, I can hope for better value for money!
Great subwoofer for the price I couldn't be happier. Great sound and bass control adjustments can be made directly from the subwoofer. I paired this sub with my Cerwin Vega floor and center speakers and it sounds good. It is not a Cerwin Vega by any means but for the price you are getting a good quality speaker.
Dont waste your money junk my 8 inch sub that uses speaker wire pounds harder than this piece of junk
Tons of power and easy to set up. Fluance are making high quality products at discount prices. I don't know how they do it, but I'll be buying more Fluance products in the future.
My son's subwoofer blew and this is perfect for his bedroom. Does exactly what we required. And didn't break the bank.
