You won't find a better center channel speaker or warranty at any price from any other brand when matching size or specifications of actual components.

BIC doesn't spend a lot of money on hype, slick websites, product manuals, or advertising. They just make great speakers that despite the price are actually of amazing quality.

The DV-52CLRB center channel speaker from BIC was the last component in my surround system to be updated, and I am extremely pleased with the results. I had a no-name center speaker from Radio Shack and voices were often muddled and overwhelmed with background noise. Now the clarity is amazing for the price (which is very reasonable by the way) and the unit is handsome. The only addition I would recommend is the addition of some rubber "feet" on the bottom (which I did). I was watching "Act Of Valor" at action volume level and during the hostage rescue escape, when the patrol boats started firing the awesome guns at the bad guys, my DV-52 vibrated right off the front of my glass shelf! Fortunately it wasn't very far from the floor and I had extra cable attached to the speaker. So - Be Warned!! Overall = EXCELLENT speaker!

A center channel speaker performs a vital task. It delivers 98% of the dialog in everything you watch. I will say that initially (pre-calibration) I was disappointed with the performance of the DV52CLR. I had to turn up the volume to uncomfortable levels where my DV62s were screaming just to properly hear what people were saying through the DV52CLR. I was upset & assumed that I had made a mistake for not sonically matching my center to my other speakers. As it turns out, all I needed to do was adjust the crossover to allow the subwoofer to handle some of the lower freq. which added the "umpf" I was looking for.

Where the DV52CLR lacks in volume, it makes up for in clarity. It recreates the sounds of peoples voices very well, delivering even the smallest of details. It shares the same exquisite build quality of the DV64 floorstanding speakers. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it could probably withstand a nuclear blast. And finally, one of my favorite attributes of the DV52CLR is its elegant design. BIC America has really done an incredible job with the creation of the Venturi line. It has been an excellent addition to my living room & would definitely look great in yours too.

after reading reviews..got this bic thru best buy for $60 and free shipping.sound blends in well between my polk ts100s and sony surrounds-subwoofer.. i've saved money and grief on good natural sounding speakers. very good quality and output compared to anything near this price..add on..I dont know why people buy hype or spend on modified crossovers to suit another persons tastes. sound is subjective-do u hear what I hear? The best sound i've heard is from a 1970s EPI and JBL bookshelf -equalized by radio shack. The harmonics were stunning-like a fine violin-it captured you and held you there. The point is- This was a combination of excellent components,acoustics,and position. Individualy, it takes flexibility -or a whole lotta cash-to sustain this potential. Happy hunting!

Wow! Shockingly surprised! This center channel speaker replaces my expensive Phase Tech speaker. The BIC is very efficient and reproduces vocals very clear and concise. The old Phase Tech sounds muddy and lifeless comparatively.

I own 3 of these and use them for left, right and center, very nice sounding, for the price you cant beat them, I checked out some JBL's last night at best buy and the drivers in these BIC's seem better quality. Only problem with the BIC are there are not the best looking, but in my medium size living room I get alot of good detailed sound. Was looking to upgrade this Christmas but after looking around I think these are still keepers until I can afford some expensive one's.

I got this for Christmas after reading the very positive reviews for this. I'm not an audio aficionado, but I definitely say that my all BIC system sounds incredible. When I visit friends and listen to their systems, I have zero buyers remorse. My system sounds much better. I couldn't be happier with this center and the two floorstanding speakers I bought (DV-64s).

i have the bigger brother 62clr in the bigger room so when I was looking for a smaller center for a smaller room I thought of Bic and got the smaller brother and I am happy. I also am a fan of the Bic tower and surround speakers good quality without the high price tag.
