Excellent speaker for movies and sports but...

  • 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. I would also like to see a bi-amp option for these towers. Overall a great buy for the typical home theater setup.

Great speakers and good value.

  • 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. I am very pleased with these speakers so far and do not plan on returning them. The sound they produce is great, rich and full in representing highs, mids and lows.

Good speakers but less than advertised

  • 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. I bought them with the expectation that I would not need to use a subwoofer.

High efficiency, low price

  • Summary: First, I'll start with the negative. There will be people who will want to know this first drawback ahead of time and it may well disqualify the PL-89 from inclusion in some repertoires. I have a fairly decent home theater receiver, so I think this is a pretty fair assessment based solely on the PL-89s themselves. For towers this size, most people are going to be a bit underwhelmed and even disappointed by the lack of bass output and especially mid bass punch.
