Reviews and Problems with BIC America DV62si Venturi
Showing 1-10 of 53
Just what I needed.
15 March 2014
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: 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.
Summary: I've got all BIC speakers for my 5.1 system powered by a denon AVR400 receiver. DV62si for fronts, DV62CLS for center, PL200 for sub and DV52si for rears. This set up rocks for both movies and music. I upgraded from an old energy system and could not be happier. All of my BiC speakers are of great quality and dollar for dollar sound as good or better than my other more expensive speakers. Great value.
Bought as a gift - make sure you get the pkg from the delivery guy if you're buying this as a gift! Pkg shows what's inside

Summary: Shipping was on time - however the packaging was poor. I marked this was a "gift" - and it shipped in the box SHOWING what was inside. Christmas was spoiled - thanks. Anyways - the item works as intended. My brother LOVES his speakers. Nothing was wrong - he is very OCD about checking things and he couldn't find anything wrong. They are a little large, bigger than he expected, but he really likes his speakers - makes me happy.
Summary: I recently ordered these speakers and am not disappointed at all. While first opening them, I realized that they have very solid construction. They look high quality and very clean (better than the picture depicts them). I hooked them up to an old Aiwa receiver that runs 100 watts per channel and they sound amazing. The highs are very clear and precise. I would say their strong point however, is the mid-range and vocals.
Good for surrounds or effect speakers - but for mains they are lacking

Summary: I thought i would use for home theater mains, but they are very harsh and very little midbass. They look good, seem to be good quality components, packed well, shipped well, but i found them very harsh to listen to.

Summary: I am pleased with the sound for the price. I find the sound to be excellent and capable of handling all the volume I want (I don't go much over 90db). I find the base very good for a single 6" woofer. (I use a sub-woofer in the 5.1 system these speakers are in - sub is Bic F12. The bass sound transition output from these DV62si over to the F12 is seamless to me - Michael Murray TELARC Organ Blaster - Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D-Minor transition from the manuals to the...
Summary: The more I have been around quality audio systems, and live performances, the more I love these speakers (and my older bic tower speakers). They have a lively and detailed quality, that when paired with my modest sub, makes for tremendous enjoyment in my music collection. Currently, I am using them as fronts for my gaming computer. The sound is just amazing. I look forward to enjoying more BIC products.
Summary: I am not an audiophile by any stretch of the imagination, but these simple bookshelf speakers have an impressive clarity behind them that makes movie watching a pleasure. It does not do well on extremely deep base, but it is more than acceptable for everyday use. My only regret is that I didn't buy another 2 sets of these for the rest of my surround sound setup.
Summary: I recently upgraded to a 7.1 surround system, and given I am running Klipsch fronts and center, my old 'kit' surround speakers weren't footing the bill. The kit speakers were nice when I was in a small apartment and needed to keep the sound down, but I no longer have those restrictions. Thus the Klipsch fronts (floorstanding) and center. I am running a Yamaha RX-V 673 7.2 receiver.
