Official BIC Venturi Thread - Page 16

post #451 of 466
So I've been reading up quite a bit on the Pioneer speakers and they tend to get really great reviews. Does anyone know whether those speakers would be a "jump up" from the Bic Venturi line? Most of the comparison threads I've read on a few different sites and posts say that the Pioneer line wins hands down, and that they actually are superior to many speakers 3-4x the price. Any thoughts?

And sorry for the double post!

I would say the pioneers are better quality speakers overall. I cant comment on the quality of the components, but they are better balanced speakers. The one area that the BIC's have the advantage is sensitivity. They play much louder with less power, where the pioneers take a bit more power to get loud.

Thats really as much as I can comment.

Is the narrow-band frequency response (Hz ~100~10,000) of the DV62si analogous to that of the V52?

It is however a valid comparison between the three because the exact same conditions apply to all of them. The only thing that changed was the components of the crossover.


Is "dB" the measurement unit of the y-axis of those graphs?

If so, why are the y-axis marker values negative? What are they relative to?

Looks like I'm the first sucker to jump on the D62-3LCRs.

They look nice...nice low profile. I'll give further impressions once I get the other two in...

It's the way the software I used at the time displayed it. I'd assume the values are relative to each other.

More important is the fact that this measure gif is 4 years old and is not really valid any more because my mod has seen a few revisions since then that make it even better. I also devised an acoustic damping mod for better bass response.

What type of acoustic damping are you referring to?

Doesn't acoustic damping reduce bass response?

Proper damping of the cabinet lowers the resonant frequency and increases the effective size of the box. More importantly in this case, it tames the boom. The crossover mod tilts the response toward the bass but the side effect of that was more boom necessitating the damping mod.

What method/materials are you using to dampen the speaker cabinet?

Presumably, the crossovers in my Venturi V52's, manufactured in America circa 1992, are superior to the "foreign" crossovers of today. I use a digital equalizer to lower the bass drop-off (rated at Hz ~55~60), but I may be experiencing some of the "boom" that you are referring to.

Your V52s are not the same as the DV62si. It's smaller and uses different drivers. Also the DV62si has nice binding posts. The V52 only has push in spring clips.

Looking for specs for the Venturi V10 passive subwoofer - particularly the RMS and peak input power.

If you have them, could you post or attached the specs in your reply?

Thanks in advance.

Just to clarify, I assume you are looking for an amp to drive the passive sub, and want to know the max RMS and peak power ratings?

I actually have the amp. I'm looking to pick up a used BIC Venturi V10 sub and want to be sure my amp has enough output for the sub.

Thanks for checking.

How do you like the D62-3LCR speakers???

Anyone else who has or has heard these speakers can also chime in... I'm looking for a comparison between them and the BIC FH6-LCR speakers. Which is preferred for a mainly HT Blu-Ray Movie setup. Looking at doing 7 of either of these speakers with 2 ID subs for a 7.2 setup.

I took a quick look and couldnt find much on the V10 sub. Which amp do you have? Also, how much are you looking to spend and where are you located. There may be better options in the price point you are looking at for a powered sub.
