Product Reviews for Sony SS-F5000 Floor Standing Speaker
from Omaha, NE on 7/1/2012
These speakers sound great. I have them hooked up to a Sony STR DE197. I also used 14 gauge monster wire with monster banana clips. I use this for radio, records, cd's, and tv/movies. They produce excellent stereo sound and I don't need a sub for deeper bass. I would recommend these to anyone who is looking for a budget friendly floor standing speaker.

I recently built my first home theater, and decided to go with Sony speakers. I paired the Floor Standing 5000's with a 5000 series Center Channel and a set of 1000 series Bookshelf speakers for the surrounds. The sound is really amazing! I was impressed with the range of frequencies and clarity these speakers produced. Lows, mids, highs......beautiful! When I added a sub, I couldn't believe how much more enjoyable the system became. I have everything hooked up to a Yamaha RX-V471 5.1 receiver. I am soon going to replace the Bookshelf surrounds with another pair of these Floor Standing 5000's.

I've been replacing old speakers from the 80's. I bought the SS-B3000, the SS-F6000 and these. The 5000s are by far the best pair. Like the smaller bookshelf speakers, they use the 8 inch woofer. Work beautifully in a 13 x 26 foot room driven by my 100 watt/channel receiver. For a bigger room I would go for the 7000s. The smaller woofers in the 6000s are disappointing. I could not be more satisfied with the 5000s, especially at the price. Back in the 80's, I would drop a weeks' pay for an inferior speaker!
You won't be disappointed

Sound is truly impressive
I am using these as front speakers in my 5.1 set up. The sound is unbelievably warm! The bass is deep and impressively hard hitting. I am absolutely amazed by what these 8" drivers can do! There is truly no need for a sub when using these. The mids sound great as well, and never break up when played LOUD. The highs sound amazing. Reproduction of sound is spot on. Turn up the treble on the receiver and they will crank out some sharp piercing sound.

Power, value, Wide Range
installation is not the easiest., They are on the heavy side. So
For $160 these speakers really can't be beat. I am putting together (piece by piece) my own surround sound system for the first time. I only had the money for the two front channels to start with. I don't know a lot about speaker. I run these speakers off the Sony STR-DH710 receiver.
