You can tell them that these speakers are from a SOLID, well reviewed 10-year old design. Home Theater Magazine reviewed the BIC DV62CLR-S and it was called, "...hands-down the best sounding center speaker I've ever heard."
That was 10 years ago but I can ASSURE you, this is one BIG, nice sounding center channel that can be mounted vertically and used as a right/left speaker as well.
Also, remember, these speakers being a 10-year old design is WHY they are so inexpensive now. The manufacturer has been able to build it at a lower cost.
Also, speaker technology has changed very little in the last 10 years. Crossovers, speakers, tweeters are still made with the same science as they were a decade ago. So, if a speaker sounded great 10-years ago (heck, even 30 years ago), it will still sound great today.
Anyone who puts down this speaker doesn't know what they are talking about and need to get some knowledge before acting up. But of course, it's up to YOUR ears. If you think you need something better, that's your call. I have heard many speakers over the years and I own these. When I have more money in my pocket, I'm NOT buying anything else. I love my BIC speakers and they sound as good as anything I've heard in recent times at electronic stores at multiple times the price.
