Being a BIC owner, I'm guessing you're already aware that you don't need to go broke to own great speakers for reasonable prices. While I just
chose and bought the PL 28 for my center in my "yet to be completed" combined system (HTS & 2CH) for future use, I came close to choosing this one instead: http://www.amazon.com/America-VK-6LC...1781916&sr=8-1
In fact, I am 90% sure I will be buying two of these to use for front width speakers, or for height...or maybe even for side surrounds. Hell, these speakers would probably make great front mains! ...but I've already got those covered
As you know, there is no one "greatest" or "best"... It really
depends on what you
want to put together, your own preferences, etc... We all have our own biases, and even consensus is often somewhat false, or derived from the myopic world that is this forum itself. You'll find what's right for you.
EDIT: And I almost forgot, the Amazon specs are incorrect (way off). Here are the correct specs, straight from BIC's site:http://www.bicamerica.com/showpage.p...pe=6&spkrID=97
And they are wall flush/wall mountable and only 6" deep, another reason or two that I'm
probably going to use them. But at least you can see that they can be bought for $200, not BIC's stated MSRP of $499
. And fwiw, I never trust Amazon's specs on stuff like this. Heck, reviews sometimes aren't even for the same product, but just an "alike" model!
