The BIC RtR 1530 15" 3-way tower speaker is an exceptional value, priced at about the same as 8" or 10" woofer tower models from most other brands. A massive 3/4" thick MDF vented cabinet houses the 1530's heavy-duty 15" woofer, which features a high temperature voice coil for extremely deep bass you can feel. The Ferrofluid cooled tweeter combines with a precision-engineered midrange driver to recreate smooth vocals and clean highs, for extended range and greater output.  Built-in power protection ensures long life and guards against damage caused by amplifier faults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Nowhere ElseFor the money, nothing comes close. Nothing. The only marginal problem for the 1530 is the tweeter, but PE can fix you up with a DC28F-8. Maybe 20 minutes to install. Weirdly good sound for the cash, and I have two sets of famous speakers. PE will take care of you. I know from experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing value!I purchased 4 of these and hooked them up to a 3000watt Pyle receiver and I couldn't ask for anything better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big Sound, won't break the bankI had been looking to replace a set of Fisher 15's I had for years. These speakers do not disappoint. They arrived two days after I ordered them with economy shipping. The boxes were well kept and there was no damage to the speakers. (Other reviews complained of damaged items) I didn't quite realize how large and heavy they would be, my other 3-Way 15 floorstanding speakers were 8-10 inches shorter than these, buyer beware about their footprint. I hooked these up to a Sony STR-DH100, even at low volume, the highs and mids are crisp with no distortion. I was expecting greater bass, but that's because at 100W per channel RMS, the receiver is underpowered for these speakers, I won't fault BIC America for that. Overall I am highly satisfied with my purchase. Put it this way, I yanked the 5.1 system in the living room and replaced it with the stereo receiver and these towers, I am not disappointed. Most of the programming I watch isn't even sound designed for anything other than stereo. My only suggestion, and I am price comparing now, is to mate these speakers to a receiver with appropriate output for their capability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Organ SpeakerI just installed these speakers on an Allen 202 digital organ which which was manufactured in the 1980's and has excellent reproduction of classic pipe organ sounds. These speakers sound smoother and much less brassy than the Infinity SM150 monitors which cost over $250 each in 1980 that I was using previously on this instrument.

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?

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?

Asked by: Dinomanic
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

I'm looking for a "pair" of 1980s RTR Tower Speaker Cabnets.Bottom-1 12" Passive, next 1 12" Woofer, then 1 6" Mid, then 1 3" Tweeter, then on "top" of the Cabnet, another 3" Tweeter.On the Lower Back of the Cabnets were Two Crossover Knobs. Please Help!

Asked by: RickJ41
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?

Asked by: Theymademusicafter1979
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.

when i buy this does it come with only one tower or what/ also do ineed to get an amp or something to go along with this? i just want good speakers i can play loud music in my room with. also does it have an aux inlet?

Asked by: nickmw
Yes these are sold individually. You will need some sort of amplifier that is rated for 8 ohms and at least 100 watts or so to get the most out of these.
