I have the FXi A6s and they're pretty nice, they match my RTi A7 fronts perfectly but my room is a nightmare for surround so I've never had them set up in good locations and I'm trying to sell mine. They deliver a pretty surprising amount of bass (Audyssey keeps trying to set them as large, but that's not a good idea, they should be crossed over at least at 60Hz if not 80Hz). If you can properly setup dipole surrounds, they can be pretty great but only for people sitting in-line with the two speakers, anyone too far in front of or behind them won't get the appropriate surround effect so I prefer to use them in bipole mode hung on the rear wall so the woofer and tweeter are angled towards the couch.
