Summary: I also have two Bic bookshelf speakers as surrounds and a bic center in a 5.1 with my old Polk monitors for front L&R in my kid's tv room. Bic makes good speakers and those do fine with Polk monitor fronts there.
Pros: Very nice, tight bass. Hits deep. Better than my Polk 10" in the other corner of the room, but then again the Polk is only a 10" and more importantly only 50W RMS. If you aren't audio educated be aware the 430 watts on this is peak. It's a 200W sub. Typical marketing ploy though everyone does it....
Cons: Only thing is I wish the carpet spikes were a half inch taller. They are fine for low carpet like Berber but for shag that would help. No biggy I had some hard rubber grommets like you put under chair legs and that works fine.
Summary: I have had these for about a month and I am very pleased. Not sure what other people are doing with theirs, but these speakers are not boomy, and they are tight. It will take you a little while to get them adjusted, and tuned, but it is well worth the effort.
Summary: I purchased this sub in November. Read reviews and couldn't have been more excited to get it. I waited until after Christmas to get my receiver (like a fool). After setting up I adjusted it and tried it out. Awesome sound. After about 4 hours of play time, I turned off the receiver.
Deserves a 5 star review. Will update review as it is breaking in.

Summary: As soon as the sub came in, i immediately adjusted the settings on my receiver to make it sound its best. I made a test cd that goes from 180 down to 20 hz. At first there was barely a response at 30 hz.
Summary: I would give it a five but because I really like bass I had this poor unit all the way turnd up i eventually burned the amp out bummer but when it worked this sub put out solid bass I eventually bought the Polk Audio SW 505 as a replacment.
Summary: I purchased this sub to replace an old KLH 10" sub that really sounded good. This sub hits hard. I have it paired up w/ Bic DV-62CLRS Center Channel and a pair of Bic DV-62SI speakers for the front mains. Receiver is a Yamaha RX-V371.
Summary: So far this sub has been nothing less than awesome. It doesnt seem to kick on when there is just talking on the screen - which IMO is nice. We watch normal tv and blu-ray movies and its nice to have a working sub again. I would suggest this to my friend.
Summary: I had ordered this sub being a little bit skeptical. I have a very old receiver without a "sub out" port and thought this fact meant that i would have to buy a new receiver if i wanted a subwoofer. I read most of the reviews and thought using this sub would work.
Summary: I have owned this sub for over 1.5 years (bought on Amazon in Feb. 2010). The sub operates flawlessly. This was my first BIC America speaker purchase. Since then,I have purchased a center channel and two floor speakers. I love the sound and setup for my home theater.
Summary: This sub is easy to hook up and like all BIC products, is high quality. I had a BIC V-80 8 inch 100 watt just one month prior to buying this one. My reason for buying this sub, was a much lower frequency response- -[23 HZ's] which realley lets you feel the footsteps of that T-REX walking across the...
