Here are some thoughts on this.

  1. Using two Bose speakers isn't going to work well and will be expensive.

  2. You'll be better off with a soundbar...yep I know bring the hate but of the two it's the better option.

  3. $200 is going to be hard but if you have variable RCA audio outputs then you can put together a budget 2.0 setup. You'll want to check your TV.

    Here are a few options to consider.

  • Soundbar - Yamaha YAS-107 $200, Yamaha ATS-1060 refurb $130 - These Yamaha's sound good on their own except for the extreme low end. However, they have the ability to add in a power subwoofer to them. I like this because the sub is not proprietary and can be used with future systems. If you're in a smaller space these will actually do alright on their own.

  • Soundbar - Sony HTCT80 $100 - Basic soundbar with a wired sub (my preference for simplicity) that will sound much better than the TV. Is this a great solution no but it will work and is very cost effective. For music it's going to be muh but for HT use in a small room it will do fine.

  • 2.0 - SMSL Q5 Pro amp $130, Micca MB42x speakers $90 and speaker wire- Slightly over budget but this will get you on the path to a much better system. This amp has an optical input so you can use it with any TV. The bookshelf speakers can be spread out to get you a better soundstage. The low end will lack but you can fix that later with a sub. You'll also need either an RCA cable to 3.5mm or an optical cable to get the signal into the amp.

  • 2.0 - SMSL SA-50, speaker wire (above) $10 and a set of BIC DV62 $120 - Larger speakers will get you better bass but you'll have to see if you have space for them. You'll also need to have those variable analog audio outputs and an RCA cable to feed the amp.

  • 2.1 - This is going to be tight and you'll need the analog outputs from the TV but this will get you good results. Lepai 168HA $30, BIC DV32 $60, Dayton Sub800 $100, and some speaker wire $10. You'll also need an RCA cable (those are cheap).

Most bookshelf speakers are best with a subwoofer.

For a small room or bedroom, 4" are ok.

For a living room consider larger 5.25" or 6.5" mid bass driver speakers.

If definitely not getting a subwoofer, 6.5" speakers.

6.5" BIC AmericaDV62si $119.

More over budget:

6.5" JBL Studio 230 $199 pair refurbished, originally $400.

6.5" Boston A26 $195 bogo.

u/FurryPancake · 2 pointsr/audiophile

Honestly the Dayton Audio B652's aren't all that great. They're good for the price yes, but still far from accurate. If you have some extra cash I'd get these BIC America bookshelfs. They reproduce sound wonderfully.

u/zoochadookdook · 2 pointsr/homegym

Yeah I'd like to keep it under 200; although I'm not opposed to buying used (stereo gear seems to be like 20-30% of the new price). My garage is unfinished so it's only going to be set up on a bench in the back. I just couldn't stand the fuzziness and jazz with the jambox I bought to replace the other system so I figured I'd ask around. someone recommended these



u/illuxion · 2 pointsr/hometheater

If you're set on the receiver, a pair of Bic DV84 for $140 each or a pair of Polk Monitor 60s for $160 each. Bic DV62CLRS center for $100 and DV62si for the rear at $110 for the pair. Bic F12 sub for $185. Maybe a pair of Fluance bookshelves for $180 a pair, and Bipolar for the for $200 for the rear, then find a center, hard to beat the bic for the price as far as a sub though. The Bic 84s, and Monitor 60s stand up pretty well to heavy bass, the F12 will add the necessary kick in the balls.

Not sure why you x-posted this to audiophile, with that budget the only way will get audiophile grade is if you can find the score of the century on craigslist.

AKG K240S headphones, FiiO E10 USB DAC/headphone amplifier, MacBook Pro 13" laptop.

Can't wait to get my Onkyo receiver and my KRK ST6 speakers hooked back up. Also just ordered a new Lepai amplifier and some BIC America DV62si's to try!


Just wanted to share, cheers!

Also, thanks for all the awesome advice and help from everyone @ /r/audiophile -- I've been working on my system(s) and have already learned a lot from y'all!

u/Wavywalrus77 · 1 pointr/audiophile

Alright, so I'm just starting to get into speakers/audiophile type stuff and I'm a complete novice to the whole thing, so hang with me. I just want to get a decent setup for a decent price so I found these BIC America dv62si's on Amazon for around $75 (including shipping!) so I was pretty psyched on that.


It said they recommend an amp that pushes 10-150 watts, so I just bought a cheap Lepai lP-2020A+ but people say that they really only push like 10w per channel because of they power adapter? I think they fixed it though because mine looks different than all the old reviews that say this, but then again i'm really not sure and I don't really know. I just don't want to underpower the speakers just because I'm on a budget. Here's a pic of the one that came with mine - http://imgur.com/QaddeUp


Also I have a 2 Sony SA-W2500 sub woofers given to me. I was wondering if there was anyway to include one into this setup? It plugs into the wall and I think that I can just wire it through its in-out ports on the back and it would power itself? Would this sound any good in this setup? Also my room size is 12x9 ft


Thanks a lot :)

u/hhlhhlhhl · 1 pointr/vinyl

Does anybody have advice for passive speakers for the following setup? I have a Pioneer VSX-524 receiver (https://www.cnet.com/products/pioneer-vsx-524-av-receiver-5-1-channel/) and a U-Turn Orbit Basic record player. I'd like to spend ~$150, and it should be from Amazon because I have a gift card. I figured passive would be the way to go because I already have a receiver. I'm in Baltimore, if that matters. I had my eye on these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006JPDI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AED492BX4II6G&psc=1, but wasn't sure if they were okay for the money, or if there was a better option. Thanks!

u/elan666 · 1 pointr/audiophile

About 15 years ago, I acquired some BIC bookshelf speakers which I've been very pleased with ever since. I used them for my DJ monitors for a long time and now they reside in my living room for my front L/R channels (considering buying their center channel too). I can't speak for their current models, but they seem to have decent reviews. Around $100 on Amazon.

u/Nixxuz · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

BIC Venturi DV62SI Bookshelf speakers

Nobsound Tone Amp/BT/DAC/Headphones

And some speaker wire. Wait until you can spend $200 or so on a decent sub or find a good used one. The Nobsound can plug directly into a USB port and function as an external DAC, so you would have less worries about any interference. Also has a handy 3.5 port for headphones if you need it.

u/oddiseeus · 1 pointr/hometheater

I own a pair of BIC America dv62si speakers. They're a little larger than typical bookshelf speakers but they sound great and are very efficient.

The price is good as well

u/send_me_ur_tomaotes · 1 pointr/Zeos

this might be a good small sub for u


I own the BIC's big brothers, the DVI 62s and they are great.

u/raistlin65 · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

If there is echo, that's going to mean bad acoustics. Without room treatments--which would be expensive--your will not get very good sound.

With that budget, I'd first try to see if you can find a used stereo receiver that has connections for 4 speakers off your local Craigslist or the Facebook marketplace. Or an audio-video receiver that has some kind of multi stereo playing back option for four speakers.

For speakers, these BIC will play fairly loud with the same amplification compared to other speakers in their budget range because of their 90db sensitivity: https://www.amazon.com/BIC-America-DV62si-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B00006JPDI/ These Micca MB42X would probably sound a little better, but will not play as loud with the same amplifier: https://www.amazon.com/Micca-MB42X-Bookshelf-Speakers-Tweeter/dp/B00E7H8GG2/

Get two pairs.

You could try placing them very near the corners. Or maybe try putting one left /right pair up on side of the wall around 1/4 of the way in from the corner on each side. Then the same on the other side. Or maybe if your work is mostly at one half of the room, around that half in a square. Experiment with angle and height. Might be better positioning them around the height of your head. Or maybe up a few feet higher angled down.

Alternatively, if you just wanted one pair of speakers to position in the room that could play similarly loud compared to the smaller BIC speakers and that have more bass, these BIC towers have large 15" woofers: https://www.amazon.com/BIC-AMERICA-RTR-1530-Standing-RTR1530/dp/B00009WBYI Then you could look for a powerful 2 channel amplifier (might push you over your budget). Sound decreases 6db every time the distance is doubled from the speakers, so if at one end of the room, the sound would be a lot quieter than at the other end. Thus my suggestion above for using four speakers.

If you want really, really affordable, the Parts Express Lepy 2020TI + Dayton B652 bundle for $50 gets you good sound for stupid cheap. Or you can get that Lepy amp standalone, as it's a solid budget unit, and pair it with something like the Pioneer SP-BS22-LR speakers, which are a great pair of bookshelf speakers for $100. The Klipsch R-15M are a great pair for a little over $150.


Sony SCSS5 - https://www.amazon.com/Sony-SSCS5-3-Driver-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B00O8YLMVA $138

BIC Venturi DV62si - https://www.amazon.com/BIC-America-DV62si-Bookshelf-Speakers/dp/B00006JPDI $117

Polk S15, refurbished - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TJ4D2LZ/ref=dp_cr_wdg_tit_rfb $166

Yamaha NS-6490 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00018Q4GA $130

Fluance SX6W - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00067OS0A $130

M-Audio AV42 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00X741TB0 $150

Or you could look for vintage, but bookshelf speakers tended to either be gigantic and heavy (like my Bozak B-201 or B-402, which are bookshelf speakers in name only) or sound weak.

u/Brakkio · 1 pointr/audiophile

Hey, been having trouble deciding between similarly priced bookshelves in the $90-$130 range. Here are the speakers I'm looking at. I'll be using these for my 12' x 12' bedroom to listen to music.

Klipsch KB-15 - $130

BIC America DV62si - $105

Fluance SX6 - $130

Pioneer BS22 - $97(Probably the safest option , lots of nice reviews)

Polk Audio TSi100 - $130

Polk Audio T15 - $109

Honestly I could go on and on, there are a lot of speakers in that price range with good reviews on amazon.

u/brianf408 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Receiver: Denon X1300W - $319 at A4L.

Fronts: BIC DV64 Towers - $115.75/ea at Amazon

Center: BIC DV62CLS - $104.89 at Amazon

Subwoofer: BIC F12 - $195 at Amazon

Surrounds: BIC DV62si - $119.95/pair at Amazon

I just did a setup similar to this for my basement (except I went with cheaper Daytons for surrounds so I could experiment with 7.1). I have to say, these BICs are absolutely fantastic for the money, and the whole system really came alive after running Audyssey.

Upstairs I have the Pioneer FS52/C22/BS22 setup, and the BICs are far better in my opinion. That Pioneer setup gets recommended a lot as a good entry-level setup, but in my opinion it just isn't that fantastic. The FS52 towers are great for music, but the center is lackluster and sounds "empty" in comparison for movies.

They sound incredible!!

u/fritobugger · 1 pointr/BudgetAudiophile

But why? Those are great if you don't have an amp or receiver but you have a perfectly good amp in that old Denon. Your $150 will go further if you buy the best passive speaker possible.

At $150 there are some good passive speaker options.

Polk Audio Monitor 40 Series II are a good choice and shouldn't sound thin without a subwoofer. $104 on Newegg right now. https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290202

Yeah, Amazon has its perks. I think the Mordaunt Short Carnival 1s look great. Never heard them before I'm tempted to buy them to find out. Anyone got anything to say bout them? They are $150 on Amazon. They look rather small though. BTW, I see what you're saying about cincinatti craigslist, wow.

Also, what about this.
