I ordered a pair of BIC DV64s, but it looks like their going to be backordered for forever, which gives me time to question this decision and see if anything else is better for a similar price.

I bought them because I saw a lot of review saying they were comparable to much more expensive speakers.

I currently have a Yamaha A-S500 amplifier and a Bic F12 subwoofer. I listen to a lot of classical and classic rock, but I don't think that should make a difference. It'll be mostly at low volumes since I live in an apartment. The room is pretty bouncy with wood floors. They'll be used pretty much exclusively for music.


The Polk Audio Monitor 75T is another that I was considering, although it's a bit more expensive. Perhaps it could be worlds better? Or worse? Can anyone say?

DV62si's coupled with a decent sub will smoke the DV64's.

Why would the DV62si be better? They have the same drivers, just fewer of them and no passive radiators.

Because a decent sub will blow away the bass output of the DV64's woofers and passives. The mids and highs will be similar because like you said, they have the same drivers.

I contacted bic and they are thinking thy will have them by March 6th. I've been waiting for them to restock as well. I've been going back and forth as to whether or not to buy two dv62clr's to use as mains or wait and get the dv64's. I think I've decided to wait on the dv64s.

I already have a subwoofer so it should do better with bass. After reconsidering the options, I feel pretty confident with my choice. Hopefully I still will after hearing them.

I ordered from shopblt.com, and they just shipped them out yesterday. They're $118.82 each there. The site says there are still 14 in stock.

You are not located in South Florida by chance? Selling DV64 fronts and DV62CLR-S for $250.
