The BIC DV62si are already are a good choice for performance/cost. Even better is that they are an excellent platform for modding because they are made from good quality parts. My guess is that BIC purposely crippled the DV62si so it would work well as a surround type speaker without competing with their more expensive offerings. Some simple mods makes it a serious sleeper.Please post some pics of those enhanced cabinets. I'd really like to see those.
