Product Details

BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System

The Formula FH56-BAR speaker incorporates an innovative, state-of-the-art solution to deliver discrete multi-channel sound from one speaker. Unlike other "all-in-one" speakers, the FH56-BAR speaker incorporates 5 discrete channels through a patent-pending technology which enables single drivers to reproduce more than one channel while combining with other drivers in creating a true lifelike expanded theater soundstage.

The unique cabinet and patent-pending driver design enables the FH56-BAR to deliver a precise focused center channel, an 8 ft. soundstage for left and right front channels, and amazing rear channel effects with no physical speakers behind the listening area.

A single Formula FH56-BAR placed above or below a television paired with a subwoofer can challenge 6-speaker surround systems selling for three times the price. FH56-BAR speakers can also be used for the three front and the three rear channels in a 6.1 theater system. Eliminate the clutter of speaker wires while still enjoying true 5-channel theater sound! 5 year parts and labor.

BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System
BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great barBought this to replace my main speakers that are being migrated to the new theater. Wifey-poo no longer wanted the surround speakers sitting out in the living room and a sound bar would be the obvious solution. So even though I read the reviews on the size of this speaker, it's still shocking to actually get it off the truck. It really is big. And it extends the full width of the Ikea TV stand on which it sits. Wifey-poo was incredulous that I bought something so large as a replacement. I told her to be careful what she wished for... That said, it is not very deep, so sitting my Plasma on top requires some additional finagling, but I did get it.Anyway, it's very important to properly set up your receiver speaker set up correctly. In our case I was replacing large main speakers and a subwoofer with this bar, so I had to make major adjustments to the speaker sizes and to adjust for no longer having a sub. Once I did it, the sound was amazing out of one box. Still lacking in some bass, but that's to be expected - and isn't necessary in the room where we have it. TV, movies, and music all sound very good through the bar, but surround isn't very realistic coming from a full set up. So don't expect miracles from it, but it will be very satisfying overall once set up properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soundbar for the moneyI read the reviews and took a chance. Didn't realize the unit was so large. Took about a week to run in and then the divers opened up. Sounds great for the bedroom. I was looking at a def tech, mirage, paradigm soundbar that costs way more. glad i got the BIC! bass isn't so good, but a sub would cure that. It is only for the bedroom though so the sounds is way better than the TV speakers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Sound BarThe BIC Formula FH56-BAR is great! I took a chance on it since there are limited reviews online. It has crisp highs and very clear sounds throughout. It sounds wonderful with a sub and holds it's own without one. It is large and heavy, but it definitely is well made and the craftsmanship is solid. Highly recommended!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase EverI had a 5.1 System set up first, then I seen this speaker at Parts Express,which is the best price for this I've seen anywhere.I have a Sony STR-DH800 Receiver, and changed my speaker arrangement to a 6.1 Surround. The FH56-Bar is light years ahead of a 5.1. It has 7 Speakers in it and can use 3 or 5 channels. the sound is fantastic, and is more full. It gives you a full 360 Degrees of a sound spectrum. The highs are crisp and lows are deep. I would highly recommend this to anyone for a front or rear setup. Thank you Parts Express for the great price,and BIC for the great product. I will be purchasing more products from both companies in the near future.

BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System

Do I need a receiver to use this? Is it possible to use this with the audio out from the television?

Asked by: Heraldo
This is a passive speaker so a receiver is required for it to work. The audio output on the TV is likely not powered so this will not work.

Maybe silly question, but I only want to attach to a "stereo" small LCD-TV. Which input pair do I use (center)??

Asked by: Alchemist
I would recommend only using the left and right front channels for a stereo setup with this sound bar.

Does this product come with a wire budle, or sold separate? If separate, any suggestions?

Asked by: David12345
This does not include any wire bundles, I would recommend 16 gauge cable.

So is this a sound bar, as in a self powered speaker or is it more like a passive center channel speaker?

Asked by: Cosmo Beauregard
This is a center channel speaker (passive).
