DIY tweak makes this an even better value.

Summary: Fantastic speakers for the the cost and maybe even better after my tweak. My BICs are connected to a 1970's Toshiba 35 watts per channel receiver, an audiophile quality Denon CD player, and a B&O tangential turntable and I'm enjoying sound comparable to my expensive sound systems! This configuration's sound is my classic 1970's high school-college era sound - warm, detailed and full.
Summary: I'm a little disappointed with the sound quality. While the sound is adequate in relation to the price, other reviews I read on this site led me to believe it would be a bit better. For myself, it would have made more sense to spend a little more and get a pair of lower-end Klipsch speakers. That being said, they are a pretty good quality pair of speakers for a low price, and I'l probably be playing them for many hours for years to come.
Summary: very nice entry level speaker at a great price, these sound darn good for the price, and pretty darn decent period, i own, klipschorns and in no way do they compete with my k-horns, but for me to say they sound pretty decent is a revelation in itself, great value for the money, if you had 4 of these with a bic center channel, and subwoofer you would have a very nice bedroom 5.1 system imho, the bass goes down to 43hz quite good for cheap bookshelf's, and add a bic sub...
Summary: Seemed to be well made. Great replacement speakers for any tv. All you really need is a small sub (which you don't really need if you aren't serious about sound). I was cautious about the brand name and price, not any more. I'd buy BIC again.
Summary: Small, inexpensive speakers with big speaker sound. Surprisingly strong bass, although a subwoofer might be a good idea. I'm using these in the basement with an older receiver that doesn't have a subwoofer out, but I'm really not missing it. Tough to beat for the price.
Summary: I have a BIC FH6-LCR center channel speaker I wanted front left and right to match it. I will break these in before I make any negative or positive comments. But as it stands right out of the box I think I'll be very pleased. So I have BIC FRONT LEFT RIGHT AND CENTER I have an older set of infinity for front left and right wide and left and right surrounds driven from my TX-NR 818 ran audessy 32 System sounds very nice.
INCREDIBLE Speakers for a Hundred Bucks. Blow BOSE 201s away.

Summary: My story: I bought a pair of Bose 201 Series IV speakers from a friend for the living room stereo. Hooked them up but found them less than satisfying. Then I stumbled upon these BIC DV62si's at Amazon. I ordered them and sold the 201s on CraigsList for only slightly less than what the BICs cost from Amazon. The DV62si's have a bright sound with AMAZING detail; the 201s sounded muddy by comparison. Perhaps the 201s had a warmer sound with a stronger lower midrange.
Summary: I wanted some speakers for my garage to be driven by an existing AudioSource Amp 120 (75 watts per channel). The sound stage is ~22 ft by 30 ft. I was initially looking at some Polk TSi100 speakers and in reading reviews I was turned towards the BICs (to save a few $$). I have to say that I am impressed, and this is exactly what I was looking for: inexpensive, yet well built with natural sound.
Summary: Long time audiophile here, constantly buying and trying new speakers and other sound equipment. First the negative, I'm not crazy about the veneer on the speaker. It's not really black as listed, more of a charcoal gray and has a heavy woodgrain type of pattern. And the seems of the veneer are not particularly smooth. They don't look bad at all, just that they could be better. The grills look nice, and more importantly the drivers look really nice without the grills on.
Summary: IMO clear, smooth, detailed, open sounding, nice balance. Good looking. Don't know why you'd want to modify them. Prefer these over the popular Pioneer BS22's and smaller Micca 42x's that I tried. Perfect for my budget system. Wish I found them long ago. My search has ended.
