I don't have experience with the Bic, but I do have experience with the PS212. My impression is that the PS212 isn't worth anywhere near its ~$500 MSRP, but at half that price, it's not a bad deal. It got plenty loud (though I used mine in a very small room, so I can't guarantee it will be loud enough for you) and actually had pretty decent sound quality, IMO. The biggest issue I had with it is its lack of deep extension. The PS212 had good power and impact above 30hz, but it pretty much ceased to have good output below about 28hz, in my experience.
For this reason, I've since upgraded to two SVS PB10-NSD's and the difference in deep bass in dramatic. The PB10's have taken things to a whole new level. They were well worth it to me, but I could see the Infinity doing a very respectable job for people who don't spend all day on these forums reading about the best ultra-low bass scenes in the newest movies
. It won't win any "product of the year" awards, but it's certainly not junk. Again, I haven't heard the Bic so I can't give a head to head comparison. Judging from the Bic's reputation around here, I'd think it might be a bit better than the Infinity. I know it can probably dig 3-4hz deeper. Not sure about sound quality.
Anyway, hope this helps. Keep me posted, and good luck.
