I have 4 BIC dv62si, a center BIC DV62CL-RS, and HSU VTF3 MK2 sub in a 5.1 setup that worked really well for me, but one of the dv62si speakers fell (2 times, damn cats) and a cone must have broken or something as it now hisses at certain lower frequencies. Since BIC doesn't even make that speaker anymore and since that was kind of a once-in-a-lifetime inexpensive speaker, should I even try to replace just the one speaker or will I never get a good match? I don't want to buy a used one on ebay or whatever.

If I do end up having to replace the set, could I just replace the two rear speakers possibly and leave the three BICs that are good up front alone? Any good suggestions that would keep everything equal?

Any good suggestions for an upgrade that wouldn't break my wallet? Say in the $500-$600 range? I don't need a sub, I like mine a lot. Just the four speakers and a center.

Look at the Klipsch Cinema 6 system. It's about $650 or so. Far better than BIC.

Yes, you could replace the 2 rears with bic or a different brand. you would probably want to stay with bic to keep things closely matched sound wise as possible.

Or you could call bic and see about getting a replacement speaker for the one that broke and replace it yourself.

Those Klipsh speakers are so small. They will get the same bass response as the Bic? I have a monster sub for the real bass but I'm afraid I'd have no mids to mid bass with those speakers. They really have better sound for movies and music than the Bics?

Should I just break down and spend some more money on the salelites and center?

Also I found that Amazon is selling a pair of new dv62si for about $100 which would be fine. But apparently I'm missng out on great sound with my cheaper speakers.
