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.

I wired in the new speakers, set them in place, and was BLOWN AWAY by what I was hearing. Brand new speakers connected to an older Samsung system, speakers that are far from being broken in, and the sound was simply delightful. I don't listen to my music uber-loud, so I shan't have to worry about distortion or clipping issues. I'm patiently waiting for the break-in period to end. I can only imagine how truly AWESOME my home theater system will sound. Movies, likewise, should be a totally different audio experience. Thank you BIC. And thank you Amazon. You guys rock!
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. Of course, I have not abused them any as they have both sat in the exact same spot for years. And, the dust covers too have held up perfectly.
That's it, and see you in six years for another update!
UPDATE 9/7/2015: So, I went through a bit of a modding phase not too long ago where I updated and modded some of my audio equipment which included some LEPAI mini-amps and an old PIONEER receiver. I replaced all of the capacitors, basically, and some other things as well. The results were impressive to say the least.
I was going to do an upgrade to my set of BIC speakers, the crossover networks. But to my surprise, the crossovers are actually very well designed. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised as these speakers are somewhat highly regarded in the audio community and considering the price are all around well-designed (the cost by the way has gone up as smidge I've noticed).
Anyway, I can honestly say that along with the cabinets, the banana plugs, the tweeters and the woofers, the crossover networks are also very well designed. Good components are properly used throughout. There are 12 DB octave slopes on both the woofer and the tweeter; the tweeter's polarity is correctly reversed (Linkwitz-Riley filter); the correct type of capacitors are used for both the tweeter and the woofer; same goes for the inductors; the tweeter is padded using the proper type of resistor. All of the parts are soldered to well-designed printed circuit boards, which are part of the plastic banana plug mounts, screwed onto the back of the cabinets. KUDOS!
You know I just want to call attention too to the cabinets for a minute. As far as speaker design theory goes, they are very well-designed and solidly built: They are made from 5/8 in. thick MDF particle board; The speaker baffles are angled back at what looks to be around 45 degrees; this is a design theory used to minimize edge diffraction effects (look it up); The cabinets have sound absorbing material secured to the back wall, internally; and like I've stated previously, they have good vinyl faux-wood veneer coverings and durable speaker grills. In other words, whoever designed these speakers knew what they were doing and did not cut any corners to save a few pennies. If there's anything to remark regarding poor design, it's the fact that the tweeters are not countersunk into the front baffles; though this is a minor quibble and probably doesn't cause any truly audible anomalies (again, it has to do with edge diffraction).
These speakers still surprise me to this day. Thanks for reading!
Be careful with the tweeters, I fried them by driving a clipped signal at high volume. It was an accident, but I still say be careful because they do not seem very power efficient for being in a bookshelf speaker rated up to 150 watts. I replaced the tweeters with Dynavox TD2801XL 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeters(they are bigger so cutting out a bit from the original tweeter mounting hole is required) and they sound phenomenal. While not in the same ballpark as $30k-$60k speakers, they are still really good.
So, the tweeters are too bright (ear piercing bright), the tweeters themselves are not capable of 100 watts +, and the woofers do not produce much bass(although I'm sure this is due to the crossover). All that being said, these DV62si are still a best bang for the buck deal. You get what you pay for, but with BIC America, you get it at a slight discount!
What makes these BIC speakers so special is the super accurate sound reproduction, wide frequency range and relatively compact size.
I find myself listening to my music library on the BIC speakers to hear what I've been missing in my car or work stereos.
Everything from Beethoven to the latest Electronica is clearly defined. All this accuracy can really show up the limitations of the source material. Low bit-rate recordings will sound flat. At the same time, HD radio and lossless recordings are rich and detailed.
The DV62si's feature solid construction weighing in at 14 lbs each. They have sound insulation and real audio crossovers inside as opposed to a simple capacitor like many speakers at this price point.
I feel that these BIC speakers are a real sound bargain that most music fans would appreciate.
