First off, I can’t necessarily label myself an audiophile per se. I do love good sound and have had a fair share of high end equipment over time including McIntosh gear; but, lately, my entire direction in stereo is to get the sweetest sounding rigs with the absolute minimal outlay — it’s a hobby for me and I really enjoy seeing what can be had for a few hundred or more. My search for a decent bookshelf with a decent frequency range lead me to BIC DV62si speakers.

I would seriously recommend that these speakers only be purchased only if you intend to have Ed Frias modify the crossovers. When I received the speakers, I was expecting something special based on the reviews of people who like the un-modded version. I hooked them up to a Dayton DTA-100a T-Amp, so I expected a certain warm to the sound. I found the highs to be excessively bright with little or no warmth to the mid-range and no bottom end. I really felt like I had wasted $100.00 or so. I’ll put it bluntly, the speakers, to me, were not listenable. So, I pulled out the crossovers and sent them to Ed (a great guy to deal with, by the way) and in just a matter of days they arrived. I installed them, hooked up the speakers and — WOW!!! It was like having all new speakers. The highs were not as harsh, the mid-range was glorious and the bass (while not wall thumping) was perfect enough for the type of music I listen to. The sound-stage is now wide with great instrument placement and voices (particularly female voices) were spot on accurate! Ed does a remarkable job turning these speakers into speakers that a truly enjoyable to listen to. With Ed it is like you give $30+ and he hands you back $500.00. The modified crossovers make that big of a difference!

Like I said, don’t buy these unless you intend to have Ed work his magic; unless, of course, you really have no concern with great quality sound. At this point, I’m thinking I should have went with the Extensive Modifications because his crossover mod alone is so incredible! I am really, really happy with the sound of these speakers! Thank you, Ed!
