Summary: These towers are WONDERFUL for movies, sports, and any other TV watching experience. For music, however, I feel they leave a lot out in the mid-range frequency department. Now, with the right receiver and EQ settings, this deficiency is almost non-existent...but it still exists to the trained ear.
Summary: Initially I planned to purchase Polk 400 TSi but they looked quite cheap and sounded poorly when I had a chance to demo them. BIC was purchased strictly based on pro and user reviews and I made sure that I can return them if I do not like them.
Summary: Strengths: high-quality sound, mid-level price, good connection posts Limitations: only average low-frequency response, slightly below average clarity The Acoustech PL-89 speakers are advertised to have a frequency response of +/-3db from 25hz to 23khz.
