I personally haven't heard them. They use the same tweeter as mine, so that might be some indication of the top end performance. Listen to them if you can.... or get them from someone with a "no hassle" return policy. Parts-Express?

I have them I think sound really good. Im no expert I just like what I hear. For the money I heard other speakers in the stores that cost a lot more and weren't the same quality.

Anybody got a quick recommendation for me? I'm on the verge of buying the DV62sis for my small HT room mains to replace a pair of 7" tall Boston Acoustics that came in my 5.1 set, but are sounding very tired to me. (No, I don't *think* it's the fact that I just turned 50.) I would also swap out the center channel for the DV62CLRS, but I would keep the BA surrounds and sub.

I'm not really interested in going to the trouble of modding the DV62sis, but I'm a bit shy of the high end that I saw in Dave1027's graph. The other speakers I'm considering are the Infiniti Primus P153s, along with a complementary center channel.

Other specs - Denon EV-300 amp

Suggestions for BIC or Infinity? Or something else?

Also interested to hear recommendations for wall mounts for these new speakers. Thanks!

I didn't own the bookshelves you are describing, but I did own the towers. I thought they sounded very good especially considering the cost. The center channel even more so just blew me away. There are times during movies where it sounds like the voices are in the room for movies. Crystal clear! I haven't heard the jnfinities, but I've heard nothing but positive things for the 62si. The mounts I would get are the Btech 77. A lot of praise on amazon and they just flat out work.

Thanks, man. That Center channel endorsement may have just finalized my choice!

Yeah, I don't think you can really go wrong. The other speakers that compete and probably beat these out are the Pioneer Andrew Jones. These speakers are crazy good for their price point. Cheaper than the Bics.

But if your sold on the Bics, I think you will be plenty happy.

I have to say that the last mod I did completely fixed any sound issues that I personally had...... I installed HiVi RT1C-A planar tweeters along with a .4mh coil and a 4.0uf cap. Even with the factory x-overs they were absolutely transformed. The new tweets did not need near as much equalization to sound unbelievable. I would recommend the exact same mod for the Pioneers with some added attenuation. Just smooth, stunning detail and clarity with wider dispersion. Wow.

Well it turned out that my amp isn't rated for 4 ohms (the BICs are 4 ohms), so I decided to go with the 6 ohm Pioneers. I went with the most recent center channel, and the older cheaper BS21 LRs. At first I was disappointed, but then I ran my Audyssey config and man, am I happy now! Next year, I'm going to get the Pioneer BS22s and use them for my LRs and move the 21s to the rear.

It is awesome that you are happy with your purchase. They should serve you well. Just for the sake of others that may be making a similar decision, the BIC's are 8 ohm.

Ack! You are absolutely right - sorry about that! I looked at so many darn speakers that I forgot which ones were my 2nd-to-last choice. It's the Micca's that are 4 ohms, and they were the ones I had circled around to and nearly bought before I discovered the issue with my amp. Thanks for the good wishes and the correction!

I was going back and forth between BIC speakers or the Andrew Jones Pioneer bookshelves and center speaker, but ended up deciding on the BICs.

I ordered 5 of the DV62CLRS for my home theater. I was looking for a good step up, within my budget of course, from the Dayton B652s I have been running. I am excited to get them and try them out, too bad I have to wait for shipping. I will be running them with my Elemental Designs A5-350 paired up with a Premier Acoustics PA-120.
