The elegant DV32's simply outperform any speakers of their size and price. They use 3.5" woofers with Poly/Graphite cones backed by massive magnet structures for their small size. Their 1/2-in. poly dome tweeters provide crystal clear highs. Ideal for use with ALL surround and music formats. Video Shielded. The holes on the back of DV32 cabinets enable easy wall or corner mounting without having to purchase extra mounting brackets. The DV32CLR center speaker is a perfect match to the DV32 speakers. DV32 speakers are available in both a black and white finish.

The units are not very attractive, basically ugly black plastic. Unlike the photo in the listing, you cannot easily remove the front fabric grill. I have them placed on bookshelves and had to add rubber feet to keep them from vibrating on the shelves and rattling. If you are wall-mounting these, this would not be a problem.
As I've explained to many, 2.1 computer speakers miss the mark for music listening. The reason is that what's called a sub is really a woofer, because the satellites on the desktop do not go low enough. So all of the directional frequencies from above about 80 Hz to the 2 or 300 Hz that the satellites reach down to are being reproduced by this sub/woofer and in mono...not stereo.
So my newest setup features these speakers from BIC, a name that I've known for 25 years.
I'm using an SMSL Q5 to power them to about 25 wpc. I started out running this from my laptop as the smallest possible system that I could agree was listenable and it was very good.
These speakers don't seem like much until you've connected them....cranked up the bass and begin pushing 10 watts through them, then you say wow!
I'm now using them with a JBL sub and this is the way a 2.1 desktop system should sound.
These high quality, affordable speakers feature a non ported, cab made of plastic, doesn't saying that just sound wrong? Let me tell you what this means to create a cab this way. Sealed cabs vs ported, were once the norm in speaker building because the air pressure within the cab will check the movement of the woofer as it goes out and back in, this was before really large magnets were used to accomplish this. It acts something akin to a shock absorber on a car, reducing over extension of the woofer's cone and allows higher power handling. But it also requires more power to push the sound. As for the plastic cab...It's inexpensive and durable and has few positive qualities, but it doesn't ruin the speakers sound or anything, it just doesn't help it either.
The terminals are spring clips, which are hardly a premium connection, but they have been making adequate connections for over 30 years, what're gonna do at this price?
The sound from these reaches that 80 Hz threshold with some strength, but just barely, so now all the directional frequencies are in stereo. The mid-range frequencies are covered nicely and I would say that the highs, in the neighborhood of the cymbals, roll off slightly and yet, most will like them.
Considering you can purchase a quality twenty watt mini like the SMSL SA-36A and these together for just over $100, you can now have a reasonably priced, desktop music system and add a real sub if you'd like. Yes, I do like SMSL as cheap mini amps.
And if these will work as main speakers...Of course they'll be excellent as surrounds too and they come with keyholes in the back, ready to hang.
Recommended, because they both fill a small speaker niche and sound excellent and not just for the price.
I use these in two different home theater systems (as rears in 7.1, and as sides in 5.1).
While using the test tone from my AV amp, I also use a sound pressure level meter during setup and to get balanced sound. I tend to run these at from +2db to +4db level over the others to get good balance (i.e., the same as sound pressure level) with my other speakers and to really here the surround effects well during movies. I like to really hear surround sound and like it set to a higher level than some other folks. Most people tell me they enjoy my settings. Point is these speakers are good quality with massive magnets and they can handle their rated 125 watts. So jack up their level as much as you need to set up a balanced sound output from them and they don't disappoint. I like them and feel they do an amazing job for their size! (They don't handle a lot of bass, but as surrounds in a system with good front sound stage and sub-woofer they don't need to.)
They can't compete with my Pioneer SP-BS22-LR speakers that I payed $89.00 for. I'll probably end up replacing the BIC's with a pair of Mica MB42 speakers.
One of the speakers has a bad rattling sound during any heavy bass output, like maybe the woofer is damaged. Wish I could have sent them back for refund. Plan on getting a pair of Mica MB42's and hope they are good speakers.
Contacted BIC support through their email, and they sent me a replacement woofer. They do sound better now, but still have some cabinet resonance during intense passages. They'll do for now, but I will eventually replace them with a pair of Mica speakers.
