BIC Formula FH-65B 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker 175 Watts
BIC Formula FH-65B 6-1/2" 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker 175 Watts is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine Speakers!!I have had a set of these for several months now, and they are hands down the best bookshelf speakers I own. Very accurate and smooth with just the right amount of brightness. I compared them with a pair of Klipsch B3's that I had, and these sounded better.Make no mistake...these qualify for audiophile grade speakers, but at budget prices. There is simply nothing in this price range that will touch them. I am running these in my man cave along with a 12" sub, and throwing about 150 watts per channel at them (yeah, I play them loud). They handle the power in stride without distorting.Great speakers, and at reasonable prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice clarityI've had these for over a year. Powered with a Topping TP21 amp, the clarity is excellent. Smooth response across the spectrum. Bass is not overwhelming, very tight and punctual. Highs and mids are not overcompensated either. I hear things in albums I've been listening to for a long time that I've never heard before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value! Loud, clear, and well-balanced.The price is per speaker, NOT pair. I knew that buying it, and even so these speakers are priced very low for their performance. BIC America doesn't spend much on advertising, but man is it made up for in quality. Giving them each 100 watts RMS they sound crisp, clear, and very balanced. Some say the mids are slightly lacking, but not in my room. Paired with a sub, I can get a very loud and very clear output from these guys. Without a sub the bass response is adequate, but obviously a sub compliments the performance of most any speaker. Highly recommended.Magnetically shielded, ported on the rear, and stock pictures are deceiving with size. They are bigger than they look. The wall mount included is just a study, slightly protruding, metal slot on the back. I have two pictures to show you what I am talking about, just don't mind the photo quality (but do click on the thumbnail for a full-size image)

Why aren't these speakers sold as matched pairs (one matched pair per box)?

I would be very concerned about the serial numbers being way out of sequence when purchased individually. Would it be possible to special order a pair with CONSECUTIVE serial numbers?....example: 12345/12346 or 12345A/12345B? Thanks.
Asked by: sgcruz
I first became aware of BIC in 1971 with their feature packed BOX/LUX receiver. The quality was unsurpassed and sold at value.Speakers are checked at mutiple stages of manufacturing to insure they perform within a narrow band of design parameters and specifications. Since some customers may desire a pair while others 4 or more, these are sold individually.I am confident that any difference between speakers would be so slight that only sophisticated equipment could identify differences. Differences that would be less than those present in source material such as audio tracks in all forms of recorded music. I sincerely believe these these are worth normal price and a steel at the 45% off sale price.Unless you have premium gear all the way, don't worry about matched pairs, in most applications it is not a true benefit.

Is this a bass reflex or sealed box design?

Asked by: Michael O
Every BIC I've ever seen was a vented design, what they call a Venturi port.
