I’ll keep it short and to the point. If you are looking for an inexpensive speaker system for your modeler that doesn't suck but isn’t fancy or feature rich, then you really can’t beat the FR108. I’m not disappointed. If one breaks I will buy another.

These little speakers surprised me. I honestly was expecting them to sound like crap and was figuring out a return strategy before they even arrived. To my pleasant surprise they sound pretty darn good. Even better than some of the other FR’s I’ve used. I play in a small cover band with 2 other guitarists and my FRFR is my backline amp. I don’t normally run to FOH, our gigs are just not big enough for that. The FR108’s sound good and as a pair easily hold their own against the other guitarist’s tube combo amps with no problems.

It doesn’t have a lot in the way of actual features, but you shouldn’t expect them at this price point. The contour switch and ground lift are about it for buttons and they work well. A big plus is they are affordable and portable so you can go stereo with 2 and still pay less than one of the ‘big name’ FRFR cabs and these are much easier to carry around. One minor downside is it would be nice if the output had a separate volume so you could adjust monitor volume without changing FOH volume. Doesn’t impact me because I use them as backline, but it may be important to some.

Ease of Use read more
Overall they sound fine and don’t take long to adjust. A little global EQ tweaking on your modeler may be needed but that’s normal for any speaker or house system. A good tip is to get them off the floor if they sound too bassy. I found the perfect set of speaker stands for these here at zZounds https://www.zzounds.com/item--GATGFWSPK0250SET?siid=275947 It also helps with sound dispersion. PA style speakers have a wider throw than guitar speakers so having them elevated a bit gets the sound around without needing to blast them.

It’s made decently for the price point. They don’t feel cheap but like most PA style speakers I’d bet one good drop would ruin your day.

The price scares a lot of people away thinking these have to be absolute garbage. They are very usable and sound decent and you can’t beat the price. You should buy two so you can have stereo :)

I haven’t dealt with them yet so I cannot comment on their service.

The Wow Factor
To me the appeal was price and size/weight. Modeling used to be about convenience and portability, but many of the FRFR out these days weigh as much or more than a tube combo. If I’m going to lug a 50+ pound cab around I’m just grabbing my Marshall. The FR108 hit the sweet spot for price/performance for my needs. Don’t let the low-price steer you away either. I’ve owned many FRFR over the years and to these old ears there isn’t THAT much of a discernable difference between a $1300 and $250 cab to always justify that extra thousand bucks.
