Break-in Period
Our speakers have a Butyl rubber ring surrounding the cone. The break-in period allows the rubber to loosen and stretch, allowing the cone a larger range of movement, and resulting in better sound reproduction. We recommend 10-12 hours of play at moderate volume to achieve this.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ˝auto-pairing˝ and how does it work?
Auto-pairing is a convenient connection feature included in all Fluance Bluetooth Speakers. If the connected Bluetooth-enabled device leaves the connection range of the Ai61 and returns at a later time, the device will automatically connect. If the device’s Bluetooth function is disabled and then enabled at a later time, the device will automatically connect as well.

What RCA devices can be connected to the Ai61?
Any RCA device will work with the Ai61. Common devices would be TVs, Turntables, Smartphones, or Tablets.

How can I increase the volume when using the Ai61 with a turntable?
If turntable audio is too quiet you may need to add a preamplifier. Some turntables have built-in preamps that can be turned on or off. The Fluance PA10 preamplifier is a great match for Fluance-powered speakers and turntables.

Why is the volume from each input different on the Ai61?
Ensure that any volume and EQ settings on your source devices are set to similar levels. The different signal types used by each input means they are processed differently by the Ai61. The Optical Input uses a digital signal while the RCA Input uses an analog signal.  These differences can result in slight variances in the output volume of the Ai61.

What is the range of my Bluetooth Connection?
The Fluance Ai61 operates with Power Class 2 Bluetooth devices, which have a range of approximately 33 feet (line of sight).

What is the break-in period for Fluance speakers?
The break-in period for your Fluance Ai61 speakers is about 10 hours of playing time at normal listening volumes. After this period, the drivers will have had enough movement to perform at their peak level.

Troubleshooting
