    Has anyone ever heard BIC America Acoustech speakers, or know someone that does? I am considering purchasing them, but I want more info before I invest. They claim to be better and have better reviews than Klipsch, but I want someone with some experience with these speakers.

    Try Onkyo, refurbished direct from Onkyo. For the money, you can't beat them for the price.

    Actually, the review for the Acoustech speakers was dated March 2004 in Audiophile magazine. That is why I am trying to find anyone that has some.

    I have this set of speakers and really like them. I don't think that you can get a better set of speakers for the money (assuming the cost of the 5.1 set is $699 like Costco had). Where did you see them for sale? I am interested in getting two more of the surround speakers to move up to a 7.1 setup, but haven't been able to find them.

    The following link will lead you to where you can read more info and more opinions about these speakers. (Edit - I tried to post the link, but apparently still can't, so go to hometheaterspot.com and look in the "BIC America/Acoustech" section and you will see what I am talking about.

    Good luck.

    Jeremiah,

    You can find individual pieces of BIC Acoustech speakers for sale at Buy.Com and also Amazon.com. The prices are pretty good.

    Rod, I did have a chance to hear these speakers at Costco about a year ago when they were stocked in the store. At the time, I attended a demo session where they had a BIC employee on site handling the demo. The sound was truly amazing for the price.

    I have begun a year-long speaker overhaul for my main 7.1 system, going through BIC Acoustech to make it happen. So far, I have the center channel speaker and the subwoofer. The former provides clear, detailed sound; the latter, which arrived last night, has riveting, resonnating, pounding deep bass thus far.

    The towers and the surrounds shall come next. [​IMG]
