Just became a BIC owner. I have had Jamo E660's (6) and 1 S60 center for the past 2 1/2 yrs or so. I was always happy with them, but have long been a fan of Horns. I was going to get Klipsch RF7's, RC64, etc, since I first demo'd them a yr ago, but just couldn't pull the trigger because I was getting cheap
My brother told me about the BIC's. Although he never tried them he was about to purchase them. So I looked on here and read great reviews and figured I'd start out small so I ordered there PL-28 from sound..... in Las Vegas via eBay.
I hooked it up to my Onkyo TX NR807 and ran Audyssey, moved it from 40hz where Audyssey put it to 80hz. It put the center at -8 or so DB's as well and my towers at -1db, but I left it alone and decided to watch Real Steel which I just burned on my HTPC. I was very impressed! It was over powering my towers. All I could think about was wow I need new towers now - haha so I already am watching the PL-89's from the same person. I then started to look at surrounds to hang on the walls since I really don't have room for all these towers in my livingroom. I am VERY impressed with BIC and what you get for the price.
Once I get the PL-89's I will get my Emo XPA-5 back out of the box and hookedup! I've read people were not happy with the finish of the BIC's. Obviously when comparing them to the RF line there not as nice, but I don't think there bad at all. Only thing I don't care for which is no big deal is the grille and connectors. I think the nubs and the back of the grill is very cheap. The connectors aren't "bad", but I do think they could have used something a tad bit better.
It looks like I will have to hang this speaker above the TV which I don't really care to do, but I don't have a choice unless I move all my a/v stuff some where else and get a small stand. I have my 70" TV mounted about 24" above the floor (which is how I mounted my 120" PJ screen) and this center being 10" or so doesn't look like it will be right. BTW I really like the mounting brackets and female holes on this center.

***Edit*** I just noticed the right speaker on the 28 isn't installed properly. Now that pisses me off. I can't believe I didn't see that before.
