Product Description

Product Description

The stunningly accurate BIC Venturi 6.5-in. Bookshelf Speakers have received numerous "best buy" ratings from a leading consumer buyer's guide magazine. Their long-throw 6-1/2-in. poly/graphite woofers deliver tight, accurate extended bass. Their patented "Venturi" vents assist in extended low frequency performance. Custom-designed poly dome tweeters and unique front cabinet angles enable minimal distortion resulting in clear mid and high frequencies. BIC speakers are ideal for use with all surround and music formats. They can be used as mains speakers, a front or rear center, and as surrounds.

Attention, all bass lovers needing small speakers: this stately pair of Venturi DV62si bookshelf speakers from BIC America uses a patented and specially tuned rear-panel Venturi port to extend the its low-frequency response to an impressive 43 Hz, nearly a full octave below the capabilities of most bookshelf speakers--the place where kick drums kick and bass guitars growl their deepest. The 2-way speakers would suitably fill out your home theater with surround sound, enliven your dorm or apartment with music, or provide gentle background ambience in your bedroom or business.

Use one pair for stereo or surround applications or pick up 2 pairs (4 speakers) for use as the front and surround elements in a multichannel listening system. The speakers are magnetically shielded for distortion-free placement near your television or computer monitor. Video programs sound more lifelike and enveloping with timbrally matched speakers all around, and plenty of newer music formats--from the DTS surround CD to DVD-Audio and SACD--offer music from your favorite artists mixed expressly for surround-sound listening. (Alternately, you could use these as surround speakers with larger, floorstanding speakers for the front left/right channels.)

Standing just under 15 inches tall, the DV62si speakers each use a custom-designed .75-inch, ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter for extended high frequencies and a 6-inch poly/graphite-blend woofer is light yet rigid for tight, accurate, and remarkably extended bass.

What's in the Box
Two speakers with grilles, a user's manual, and warranty information.

I was looking to replace my Boston Acoustics a60 pair after about 20 years of use. I read as many reviews as I could find on the internet and also looked at Consumers Report. I kind of narrowed it down to the JBL S26,Venturi DV62si and Polk r15. The DV62si won the competition. I auditioned each of the speakers and found the BIC pair to have a singularly beautiful sound especially for classical and jazz (which are my mainstays). I was pleasantly surprised by the bass response since CR said they were a bit "bass shy". I recommend highly. (I have my speakers on 12 inch stands.) Bravo BIC.

I just hooked these up to a moderately priced A/V receiver from Pioneer; I'm guessing they will take a few days to break in, but they sound excellent already. For the money, they're the best speakers around. For their size, they make decent, low-end bass. I will not be needing a sub, they're that good.

Their looks are pleasing; fit-and-finish is good to very good, not too fake-wood looking. For the price, it's acceptable.

The packaging is poor; I really thought my speakers were damaged when I removed them, as the cardboard box and the foam inserts were flimsy -- very poor quality. But, except for one of the back corners that was slightly dinged, they were in great shape.

I am giving them 5 stars for the very low price.

Update 6/13/07: I am very happy with the speakers. It has been several weeks and I enjoy them more and more every day. I have discovered that music can be fun to listen to again as I am hearing a quality and clarity that was missing with my old setup.

I've integrated a small subwoofer into my setup that extends the low end down a bit more. I listen to old LPs, an IPOD, and the local radio stations -- all sound excellent. Best sound/value speakers I have ever owned.

UPDATE 7/27/13: Well, what can I say. It's been six years since I purchased these babies on Amazon, and they have not let me down. Workhorses, they are; they get used nearly every single day and have performed flawlessly during that whole time. I just want to comment on two things: 1) the woofers' rubber surrounds are still in perfect shape, and 2) the cabinets' fit and finish is still great; the dark grey vinyl wood grain coverings have not peeled away at all anywhere.

I'm a bit picky about realistic sound; I did a bit of conducting in high school and college. So, it is little wonder that I'm still running a mint pair of ultra-clear ESS amt 1B floor standers in the audio room and Paradigm Mini-Monitors in the HT room.

I first bought a pair of DV62si's as a gift for my father because of two factors: they sound great not only for movies, but for music, too; and, they are a screaming deal, pricewise. Since putting together dear dad's system, I've recommended the DV62si's to four friends who use them in HT surround systems. Needless to say, they are the envy of their friends and families, and pains to their next door neighbors when they show movies and forget to close the windows.

I've been working in a home office for the past six months and needed tunes and NPR in the room. So, I picked up a bullet-proof Onkyo TX-8222 stereo receiver and another pair of DV62si's. An old Samsung DVD player plays CDs and a Sony portable Mini-disk player does the recording and playback tasks.

For years the leading consumer magazine has rated these speakers as one of the most accurate they've ever tested. Yes, they grumbled that there wasn't much extended low bass. However, these speakers were designed for HT applications, where the use of a subwoofer is presumed. So, extended low bass is really a non-issue. The build quality compared to audiophile exotics is utilitarian. However, it is strong and adequate considering the low price.

While many tweak-o-philes insist on sending the crossovers out to replace a cap or resistor or two so that they can claim "miraculous" sonic improvements, that really isn't necessary.

Hi there. I got the pair about 2 weeks ago. I decided to wait on for the review because I wanted a full break-in period for these. I will agree with other customers that they were a-bit bright at first with not enough bass. After about a week of somewhat continuous playing, I find the warmth and bass really coming in fully! They are a true pleasure to listen to.

the build quality on these is great. Has some dampening material inside, its sufficient

For around 55 dollars each speaker (I am on an extremely tight budget) There is absolutely nothing of this price and probably even double that could beat the quality and sound of these.

UPDATE: ---> 7/6/11......I just noticed that every time I listen to these, I smile. I have a more recent harman/kardon amplifier/receiver and as a setup, the sound is just superb. I just noticed that one of the customers put them next to their computer screen like 2 feet apart from each other. As I understand, many people have insufficient room for these speakers, but jeez, not 1 or 2 feet apart! You guys, these speakers need their space! I have them about 8-9 feet apart from each other. Placed about 9 inches from a wooden wall and they just sound amazing. APROX. room size: 18 by 32. Pretty large room for such small drivers (6 inch woofer) but as I said, the sound is just astonishing at this price point. Just listened to Steve Winwood's: Valerie and I was completely amazed. 5/5 star or 10/10 or 100/100 what ever you rate it on. but these just surpassed my expectations. They really did.
