Cool New Bic America flagship towers?

I just noticed that Bic America has new flagship towers becoming available on December 15th, The Bic Acoustech Platinum PL-980. Has anyone heard anything about them other then what's mentioned on Bic's website? Thanks!

Will be interesting to see how they perform, the Acoustechs are supposedly great for home theater and offer a lot of value.

The old PL76 and 89s are/where great value for the price. I heard the pl 76s are discontinued. Maybe the PL89-2 are done also? Interesting to see what is coming next.

Dsrussel: I called them up but the facility in Anaheim is just a warehouse with no showroom or area to demo speakers, The lady who answered the phone just told me where I could go online to buy them at.

I feel like I'm being impatient but I really want to see what these look like and how much they will retail for, they were supposed to be available on the 15th but so far no pics or websites with prices bah.

Update from BIC.

Hello Randy,

Thank you for your interest in BIC's new model PL-980. The model has been delayed and is expected to arrive around the first of the year but possibly before.

We are currently working on updating our website with images and specifications. Please check back at www.bicamerica.com around the end of the week.

Regards,
BIC Service

Dang it! I just bought the PL-8220 system about 2 months ago, I really wish I would have seen this earlier! I would have waited to get the new towers for my system.


I picked up this system along with an extra PL-200 sub.

Hey Fernando, that's the way it always seems to go isn't it? I checked Bic's website just now and the pictures are now up with a little more advertising information about them, yay!

Klipsch sv BIC america

I really would like to see these reviewed.. I have permission from my wife to upgrade main towers.. Now I can't decide whether to go with Klipsch RF7II, Klipsch RP280f or Acoustech Platinum PL-980.. I guess I'll have to wait just little more

Hi there. I will post this here and on the Acoustech Owners thread.

I am a long time Acoustech owner and have a dedicated theater that I just upgraded my PL-89 towers to the PL-980's. I also replaced my PL-28 center channel with the PL-28II to take advantage of the improved crossover. I felt I had to post as there is really no user info out yet on these speakers as they were only released last month. A lot of people seem to be asking for anything about how these speakers sound. I would love to weigh in on these amazing speakers and get people talking about them.

I have only had them installed for a few days and have watched several reference scenes from a lot of blu-rays and watched The Maze Runner last night. I am not an audiophile by any means but I will say this, as great as the Pl-89's are, there is something really noticeably different in the sound of the new PL-980's. The entire soundstage in my modest 12 x12 theater seems so much bigger and richer if that makes sense. The evenness across the front soundstage is so smooth and uniform more than it ever was with the PL-89 and PL-28 and that is not to say that still sounded great. But most differently I am noticing sounds in scenes I never heard before. So many little details that have me doing a second take when I hear them. I truly believe this has to do with the new mid-range driver in these speakers. This is still early with these speakers and I have a long way to go before I really sok them in but I wanted to give an early weigh in. In a nutshell they are fantastic! And that goes for anything from the BIC Acoustech line for that matter. You will not be disappointed. My equipment list is as follows in case you are interested.

Front Channels = (2) BIC Acoustech PL-980 Left and Right
Center Channel = BIC Acoustech PL-28II
Subwoofers = (2) BIC Acoustech H-100
Surrounds = (2) BIC Acoustech PL-66
Front Height Speakers = (2) Kicker KB6000
Oppo 103 Blu-ray player
Epson 8500UB Projector
106" Fixed Frame Elite Screen
Onkyo TX-NR1010 receiver

Have you heard the Klipsch Reference Series? I would be curious to see how they compare, a big knock on Klipsch is their brightness. These new BICs could end up being a better choice for someone wanting that dynamic sound with a less aggressive top end.

First post

Hey guys, I came here via Klipsch forum where I was trying to research the Klipsch rf82 towers. A member mentioned he found the BIC PL200 to be the perfect match for his Klipsch rf82. Having gained interest in the BIC line, is the 980 towers being discussed in this thread comparable to the rf82 towers? Or, is that yet to be decided? I'm buying my first HT system. Please forgive my ignorance.

I have not heard the Klipsch Ref series but I have researched their whole line extensively and they were high on my list as I like a bright sound especially from horn tweeters. Budget and various design elements just didn't work out for me so I went with the Acoustech line and couldn't be happier. This is coming from being a long term Bose owner which I know is the lambasted brand of speakers but I have never had any complaints about them when I was an owner. That being said, my God what a difference full size speakers make if you have the room for them.

Just looking at the specs this design sounds like a step backwards, like literally to the 1970s. A sealed back mid playing up to 5 khz? All that is going to do is create horrid off axis response. A 6.5" horn should have no issue crossing to an 8" woofer around 2 khz. It almost feels like they wanted to stuff as many drivers as possible in the cabinet to look impressive, and that required cheaping out on the crossover. My gut tells me the crossover consists of a single cap and resistor on the tweeter, and a single cap and resistor on the mid, that's it. Would be cool if someone took a look inside.

Hard to say without hearing them. The older PL-89 II were a good affordable substitute, I'd imagine these are very similar.

BIC America has been designing speakers since the 70's and I believe are still designed by the same guy.

The previous iteration, the PL-89, was their flagship model for years. I've not heard them, but customer reviews are predominately positive. The only (recurring) complaint with the PL-89 was a reported hole in response between the horn and woofers. I believe I read that it crossed over at around 1200 Hz. Because of this, he created a new crossover and changed the model number to PL-89ii a few years back. This 930 model is no doubt another attempt to improve on that.

Hello all,
I have the old accoustech speakers, HT-88 and H-85. I want to upgrade to the pl-980 and pl-28ii. Would this be a major upgrade or should I go with Klipsch reference rf82ii?

Thank you

Uh, go with the BIC Acoustech, of course. You asked this in a BIC thread. What answer did you expect to receive? (If you asked this in the Klipsch thread, you would be told to go with Klipsch...)

As with any speaker purchase, just stay within your budget.

Hello everybody! been a long time i haven't visited this forum. just found out those awesome looking new flagship speakers from BIC. my PL-200 is still kicking ass for four years now. I went with polk audio's RTi line on speakers. but those new PL-980 look really really good. i wonder how it stands out against my polk RTi12s.

XIM edge, ps3, yamaha RX-A1000, adcom GFAii, Polk Audio RTi series, BIC Acoustech PL-200 sub, Audio Technica AT-LP60, 65" toshiba LCD......more and more to come.....work, work, work!!!!

Well, according to manufacturer specs:

Frequency Response: (PL-980) 22Hz-23kHz (Polk) 26Hz-30kHz
Sensitivity: (PL-980) 98dB (Polk) 90 dB
Recommended Power: (PL-980) 10-300 watts per channel RMS (Polk) 10-500 watts per channel
Warranty: (PL-980) 8 Year (Polk) 5 year

It would seem that the PL-980 will play lower, louder, and has a longer warranty. It doesn't come with that sweet wood finish, however.
