BIC RtR 1530 15" 3-Way Tower Speaker
What are the specs of each speaker? and internal cross over?
okay, I got two questions here:First, you guys wouldn't happen to know the specs of the 3 individual speakers would ya? Such as how many watts they each can take and the ohms are the two main things I'm interested in. Any other info about them would be nice too!For my second question is there an internal cross over because they say "Built-in power protection" but nothing about a cross over, if so, is it a 2 way for the sub and mid-highs? or 3 way, one for each?Thanks :D
I opened the enclosure, out of curiosity, to take a look at the crossover network and see what was used for protection. Here’s what I found: The 15” Subwoofer, 5” Mid-Range and 2” Tweeter are all protected by a single polymer self-resetting fuse (it physically resembles a ceramic capacitor). The 15” Subwoofer [6 ohm] has no crossover so it receives all music frequencies applied. The 5” Mid-Range [8 ohm] has a -12dB/Octave [2nd Order] passive high-pass crossover utilizing a series 10uF capacitor with a shunt 1.0mH iron-core inductor (this equates to a -3dB crossover frequency of 1.6kHz). The 2” Tweeter [8 ohm] has a -6dB/Octave [1st Order] passive high-pass crossover utilizing a series 2.2uF capacitor (this equates to a -3dB crossover frequency of 9.0kHz). The protection and crossover networks are all soldered to a small circuit board mounted on the enclosure’s power input terminals (internal side of the rear located 5-way red & black speaker terminals where you connect the speaker wires from your amplifier). I have no data in regards to the power ratings of the individual speakers.

Would one of these work as a center channel?
I have plenty of room in my man cave for 3 of these up front for my R/C/L would I make a mistake using one of these as a mid? I am worried that they may drown out your usually tiny center channels. Looking to replace 3 Polk Monitor 50's up front.
As said absolutely. If you have room go for it. To be honest 3 exact same speakers as LCR will sound better than LR with a smaller center. Makers only make tiny centers because most people don't have room for a large floor standing center.

Empty them out....
Hey guys, can you send me just the cabinets and grills. I have a pair of dayton series II woofers. Alum Dome midranges Dayton and ribbion tweeters. And custom crossovers for the speakers and bi-amped.....It would be a shame to scrape good parts that some one my need for repairs or replacements. You should offer these cabinets for projects..... Say $50.00 a box.... I would pay up to $75.00 for a empty box.....Hint Hint
Just an idea, but you may want to have live chat with an employee. Maybe they could work out a deal, like the first one's returned with driver defects are yours for the buying. I do doubt they would offer such a deal though as it may end up costing them more money or precious warehouse space for parts that won't sell. Not to mention they will be breaking some major warranties on the item if they just use new ones like that. If all else fails, offer to go in on a pair with some one else over techtalk. You each buy one and take what you agreed on then ship eachother what you don't keep. Hope this helps!

Lay on side?
If I purchased three of these for LCR, could the center speaker lay on its side?Thank you.Bill
Yes there would not be a problem with this.

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?
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.

Will these speakers be an overkill for a Medium sized living room
I am not getting the sound I like with small woofers and sub setup. I am considering this as my L and R for my home stereo setup. I mostly listen to Christian music. My questions is that if I use it in my medium sized living room, will it be an overkill or not have adequate room to breathe.
There is really no way to properly answer this question. These should have no problem filling your room with plenty of headroom, but it all depends on actual room size and how loud you like to listen.
