fluid audio f5 review

“One factor just blew us out ! The stereo image that Fluid Audio F5’s created and the power these little guys delivered”

The Fluid Audio F5 (Fader Series) comes with a 5″ driver and a front bass-reflex port. These were called the budget monitors but sounded absolutely professional with a tight and punchy bass response. The power and clarity at the Mid-range made us go blind to the harsh top end. One factor just blew us out ! The stereo image that the Fluid Audio F5’s created and the power these little guys delivered. The listening environment was just a small 10X10 room with two bass traps.
