BIC RtR 1530 15" 3-Way Tower Speaker
How are these significantly different than the BIC RtR-EV15 15" Biampable Floor Speaker ? the "biampable" (whatever that is) is almost twice as much. I just bought a Yamaha receiver and it's sitting in a box, waiting for me to get some speakers.
The differences between the two are pretty vast, the only similarity really is the woofer and cabinet size. The drivers are all different with the RtR-EV15 using higher quality components (and likely better crossovers). Bi-ampable simply means these are wired in a way that allow you to have an amplifier powering the woofers and a separate amp powering the mids/tweeters.

I would like to be able to hook up my ipod to two of these speakers, is there any kind of compact device that i could use to do this? i was thinking something that would sit ontop of one of the speakers
You will need an amplifier between the ipod and the speakers. We have many options that will work for this, something like the Sherwood stereo receiver would be a good option.http://www.parts-express.com/sherwood-rx-4105-stereo-receiver--252-125

If I was going to run 2 or 3 of these speakers and then potentially a few basic home speakers from a stereo system what kind of power source would I need?
This requires a bit more information in order to proceed. Please contact our tech support for more help with this question, firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-338-0531 x1.

I'm just trying to hook my computer/ipod/ phone up to one of these what would I need to be able to do this? Will I need an amplifier or could I just use an Aux cord?
You will need an amplifier for this application. We have many options that will work, something like the Sherwood RX-4105 will be a great choice.http://www.parts-express.com/sherwood-rx-4105-stereo-receiver--252-125

Unfortunately this is something that will only be available from BIC directly, or possibly the used market.

I grew up listening to Realistic Mach 1's. Then I bought a pair of Mach 2's and 3's. At one time I had the 1's and 2's on a four channel that was adequate in power. Are you familiar with the Realistic Mach line and would four of these compare to them?
Unfortunately nobody here will be able to directly compare these speakers to each other. The BIC towers are among our best sellers and will likely out perform the Mach models for bass response and power handling simply due to their overall size, however clarity and detail will be very subjective.
