From the Manufacturer

Experience the dramatic bass and tingling highs of the high-performance SS-F6000 floor-standing speakers. Crafted to bring massive audio power to your home, these speakers make a statement. You and your guests will appreciate their impeccable high resolution sound reproduction and the deep, hard-hitting bass.
Built for High Resolution Audio
The SS-F6000 features amazingly detailed sound reproduction, with a upper frequency response level 50kHz--nearly twice that of conventional floorstanding speakers--to deliver high resolution audio from sources such as Super Audio CDs (SACD) and FLAC digital audio files.
This high-performance configuration features a 6.5" Mica-reinforced woofer and a 1" Nano Fine balanced dome tweeter, balanced by a 3.25" enhanced H.O.P. cone mid driver and a 6.5" enhanced H.O.P. cone mid woofer. 180W of maximum input power makes the SS-F6000 ideal for high-performance stereo applications, as well as functioning as powerful front channels for your surround sound home theater system.
Improved H.O.P. Cone Design
The 6.5" bass drivers and 3.25" midrange drivers in these speakers feature improved H.O.P. cones to bring you overall sound improvement. H.O.P. stands for Sony's exclusive Highly Oriented Polyolefine, which is a speaker cone material of extraordinary strength. It's up to 30 times more rigid, per unit weight, than polypropylene. This material delivers sound with lower distortion and extraordinary transient response when compared to more traditional materials.
Nano Fine Tweeters
Of course the woofers and midrange drivers aren't the only parts of these speakers to get special attention. The tweeters were built with their own Nano Fine technology to improve sound delivery. Conventional material suffers from high internal loss and low resistance to both heat and humidity. The Nano-Fine material gives you much lower internal loss, and high resistance to both heat and humidity. The result is crisper sound at the high end, adding to your overall sound experience.

I purchased these because I wanted some floor-stand speakers to add to my 7.1 setup for concert style music, classic, and of course movies in my 200 sq ft den. Didn't want to spend a fortune on this one (i have two other setup). Unlike most people, I have used previous sony speakers and have been impressed with their value so I decided to purchase this one (a pair of floor stands for less than $150? u kidding? dirt cheap). Since I could return 'em, why WOULDN'T I try these? When the speakers arrived, i did not realize how big they'd be. The pictures make them look small and I haven't read the dimensions. You probably need two people to carry the box... although i barely managed by myself. Came in a VERY well packaged box. FAST shipping.
I set these bad boys up and currently i'm punching in 140 watts each. They sounded unbalanced and distorted at first but that's normal for a brand new speaker set that has not gone through manufacturer's pre-test. Like your boots, the straight off the factory grill speakers first need to be "broken into." The cones are made of really durable material so it took about 7 hours of music play to get'em in balance (this happens automatically as the cones vibrate). You can always leave them on at low volumes and go to work. Make sure your setup has a surge break setup of some kind since your setup will run unsupervised.
Now for the important part: SOUND QUALITY. I rate these speakers a three star...Read more ›
The sound that these speakers produce is way beyond my expectation it has a wonderful distinct, deep yet thumpy bass while it doesn't loose any of the other range.
With these speakers you do not need a woofer.
What I don't have, is a home theater enthusiast's budget. Family comes first, of course. Got the mortgage to pay, got the wife I love to give everything she wants and recently we've added a little one to the mix who is the most precious thing in the world but sure is expensive! I simply don't have the money to spend on $2000-each speakers made by the speaker company elite. Much to my frustration, I've been living for years with a Sony HTiB (HT-DDW790) that came with serviceable-at-best speakers. Most of all, the center channel was horrid and made dialogue thin and often unintelligible. What I did know, though, was that this set did come with a decently capable receiver and seemed meant to have its speakers upgraded. Unfortunately, though, I had to put this off for years.
Last year, I upgraded my setup with the Sony center channel SS-CN5000 that I happened to see on sale at a local electronics store. I had been looking at a Polk audio one and hadn't really considered Sony because I wanted to go "higher end". Still, I couldn't beat the price at $99 so I decided to give it a shot. What an upgrade!!! It wasn't the BEST, I'd ever heard. But it was a HUGE improvement over what I had and I've already come to terms with the fact that I cannot have the best at this point in my life when it comes to home audio. But it is VERY GOOD. So I started to research and found that there was an entire line to go along with this center channel.Read more ›
I compared these at a store against a pair of JBL ES80 and similarly priced Yamaha floorstanding speakers. The F6000 offered the least warmth but most clarity out of the three. I rated the F6000s with 4 stars because it has a very uneven response curve (though somewhat expected at this price range) and needs delicate equalizing. The bass is slightly boomy, lower mids come out too strong and upper mids are relatively weak, highs are OK. I am amazed at the reviewer who wrote the bass isn't deep, he must be a subwoofer junkie. I can certainly feel the bass in my chest.
The loss of upper mid frequencies might be because the speakers are 4-way and the signal may be degrading going through too many crossover filters or it may be a safe design decision to make the sound pleasing to the average Joe. This won't be an issue for most people but I would not recommend these speakers to you unless you are using a 9 band equalizer. Listening to Guns N' Roses "Use Your Illusion" albums I get the feeling the guitars sound distant and muddy. Other reviewers with sharp ears have pointed out this muddiness, it is certainly caused by the strong lower mids (NOT caused by low driver quality) therefore it can be corrected.
My Yamaha receiver has a 7 band graphic equalizer and below are the settings I recommend for obtaining a 'flat EQ' (amplifiers and room acoustics affect the sound but you should get a general idea) :
63Hz : -1.5 dB
160Hz : -0.Read more ›
