BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System
How does this sound from seats off to the side compared to straight ahead?
Without having horn dispersion information from the manufacturer it is hard to say. These appear to be 90x60 (or similar) horns, so assuming 90 degree horizontal dispersion means the off axis response should be pretty exceptional for these for most listening spaces.

I recently purchased this BIC Formula FH56-BAR Speaker Bar System form PE. I like the sound but a little short on the low end frequncy (bass). What would be a great upgrade replacment speaker for the (2) 6 1/2 woofers in ths speaker bar?
There are a couple problems with this. The woofers used in this system use multi voice coil design in order to be used for both center and left/right duties and we do not have anything that will be able to replace that. Also, a speaker bar like this is not supposed to reproduce a huge amount of lows, the 37 Hz extension is a bit optimistic. You are also limited by the enclosure itself, so changing the woofers would not necessarily amount to more bass. You would be farther ahead adding a small subwoofer to fill out the low end which is likely what BIC had in mind for this bar.

I recently purchased this sound bar from you and it sounds fine, but I can distinctly hear sound from the side (surround speakers) even though they are not connected to my receiver... How is this possible and is this normal or there something wrong?

I have a 7.1 receiver. I see the bar is marked with right and left rear but I was thinking of connecting my right and left side channels there and still running rear surround, would you advise this?
I don't see any problem doing this.

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