here is my modest build thread of 3 Fusion 10's and 2 Volt 6's.

they are replacing BIC America speakers. Everything went together very well and the packaging and shipping was top notch. Special thanks to @Mattcc22 and @biliam1982 for assistance in the final build steps and crossover assembly. had a great time getting everything together Saturday.

As far as sound.. I am extremely pleased. Now granted, they haven't been fully broken in, I didn't even run Audyssey yet and they are on the floor..but just plug and play they sounded amazing. I'm not a REW guy or a charts and graphs kind of guy..that is above my level of knowledge, so I don't have any measurements to show. Just as far as sound, they were amazing...head and shoulders above my previous BIC speakers. They played so loud and clean. No distortion what so ever. Crisp and clear..my wife even commented on how clear they sounded..especially during scenes of glass breaking.

I am very pleased and super happy I made the plunge. Also a super thanks to Erich for putting up with all of my questions. He truly has done an amazing service for the DIY community.

Chad

It was a fun day. Wish we had a little more time there at the end, but was nice to at least hear them for a minute or two! We'll have to work out a day to get your stands built soon, but maybe for now you should spread your subs out and use them as stands. We'll have to do a movie night soon!

Nice Work!!

The F10's and the Volt 6's will sound even better once they break in a little. The F10's are great speakers. Glad to see they are available again.
thanks Brian...you answered a few questions for me some months back and i know you were very high on these as well...thanks again for that feedback..

Matt..i think they sounded great in your room as well. and yes we will have to set something up once we get everything dialed in.

Looking good. For HT, these should be a step up from your previous speakers.

I guess the other guy is Matt.
thanks man..its not even close between these and my other speakers..

the other guy was me...the muscular one in the red shirt.

found a picture of @Mattcc22 ...he was assembling the crossovers...he was the brains of the operation..

Very nice Chad the speakers and the stands look great along with those subs! Those fusion 10's all seem to be at the perfect height in the room. I like your room to, having a mini fridge really comes in handy. Congrats on the setup I bet it sounds good in your room.
