    Nice, Low Profile Speaker

    I have a Bic America 5.0 system, with a Polk sub. For the money, heck, for anything under $100, considering the size, you won't beat this center. I purchased an Energy RC Micro system last week, and promptly returned it. Why? The weak center channel speaker. Vocals sounded small, and that's a pet peeve of mine. That's what makes this little guy stand out. Handles vocals as well as some full-sized brands. Deep male voices, like Christopher Lee's in 'Lord of the Rings', sound the way they are supposed to. Only occasionally do I hear it strain, and that's usually due to the way the vocals were recorded from the source, not necessarily the speaker's fault. When I upgrade to a bigger center -with wife approval...still working on her- it will probably be within the Bic America family. You can't beat it for value. Very well-made, solid, as well. For $40, you simply can't go wrong Try it out. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I wanted a center channel speaker for movies. I use DCM Time Frame 500 speakers from the 80's that I will never replace. I wanted a center channel to better enhance what was being spoken. I didn't have much space for a center speaker and I needed to go small or move a lot of equipment. I thought I would try this speaker because it was small and not expensive. I found this to be a real value for a center. It really gets the job done and sounds great. Don't let the small size fool you. This has a large full sound. I don't think I will ever replace this speaker. If you don't have a center speaker give this a try, you'll be happy you did. Remember that good things come in small packages.

    replacing htib I was getting a little poor.I hesitated to get this.glad I did.I have 4 infinities for the rest.i wanted a speaker that wouldn't have a unique sound like a polk to fit in better.this had the price,the specs I wanted.arrived well packed.it cannot be hung on wall but ok for me.size wasn't a issue but this is less wide.however it is deep,very heavy ( good magnets) and high..it keeps up fine with the 6.5 fronts except at real low volume.but I think any center would do that.my bic emblem was crooked but was able to twist it right.very happy I saved so much and still got a great center.couldn't recommend more.kicks for music too

    A Decent Replacement

    My original center speaker was damaged, so I wanted a similar replacement. This item is much larger and significantly heavier than the Tivoli that I had. The sound is clear and profound with my new center speaker (this 1). I like the color and the Red & Black wire ports on the rear are the same as my previous center speaker so it was a plug and play set up. It was very easy to connect. This was a great replacement.

    I have had BIC Venturi floor standing speakers since the 1970s and was excited to see this brand pop up in my search for my home theater upgrade - this is a solid speaker with some heft due to the superior construction - handles a great range of sound and will take some power. I also added 2 of the 3.5" small BICs for my rear 2 speakers in a 7:1 config - likely to buy 2 more soon to continue the upgrade. Price is great as well.

    I bought this for a secondary system, and I am very pleased with the sound I am getting for $40. I even tried this on my "good" system, and it compared very favorably to a speaker that cost 4X as much (ouch). Heavy magnets. Perfect center speaker for space limited installations. Sounded excellent with both movies and music. Doesn't have that "honky" sound of other value-oriented center speakers

    After listening to a 4k movie on my new Sony stereo, I wanted to add the center channel speaker, but didn't need audiophile $$$ speaker, this BIC is perfect for my mid-range system and delivers the soundtrack spoken words cleanly and for an amazing price.

    I have Bose bookshelf speakers that I am using temporarily in my basement with a brand new Onkyo surround stereo until I figure out where I truly want to set up my home theater. In the meantime I needed a center channel speaker to properly hear voices in movies, etc. this speaker more than takes care of that need and works well with the Bose.
