Product Details

BIC RtR-EV15 15" 3-Way Biampable Floor Speaker

With a woofer magnet twice the size of the RtR1530 magnet, 95 dB sensitivity, and an extremely wide and level response range, BIC's RtR-EV15 sets a new high in performance to price ratio. Outstanding power-handling capability. It will accept the output of powerful amplifiers without a whimper and look great while doing so. There are some occasions when it is advantageous to drive the woofer separately from the mid-range and tweeter. This process of bi-amplification is enabled by two sets of gold-plated input terminals, one set connected to the woofer circuit and the other to the crossover circuit for the mid speaker and the horn tweeter. Gold-plated removable straps connect the two sets of inputs for conventional single-amplifier operation. 5 year parts and labor.

Specifications: • Power handling: 225 watts RMS, 430 watts peak • Frequency response: 24 Hz-20 kHz (+/-3 dB) • Sensitivity: 95 dB @ 2.83V 1W/1m • Impedance: 8 ohms • Dimensions: 43" H x 17-1/2" W x 12-1/2" D.

BIC RtR-EV15 15" 3-Way Biampable Floor Speaker
BIC RtR-EV15 15" 3-Way Biampable Floor Speaker is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers for the moneyThese speakers are accurate & very efficient. They also sound great at higher volumes. Considering they have horn tweeters, the upper treble is very smooth but I found I need to cut 900hz, 1.6khz, 3khz & sometimes 5khz a couple dbs each when listening to hard rock. However with modern jazz I need no eq. With a few dbs of boosting in the bottom end, they're right on point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good valueDo not feel the difference in the sound intensity of A and lowest E on bass guitar - claim of 24 Hz at -3 Db seems to be right on the money. The higher sensitivity on high frequencies does not seem necessary but you can quell it on the amplifier.Overall most probably the best acoustics for the money. Much better lows than with old speakers of 70s - 90s with exclusion of high-priced ones maybe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best RtR yet!I owned the previous RtR-15s and these are much better. Horn helps the highs that weren't there before and I really like the fact that they are bi-ampable. The paint is also a darker black, looks better in my room than the others.

BIC RtR-EV15 15" 3-Way Biampable Floor Speaker

I want to Bi-amp these speakers using 2 Crown XLS 2500 amps. They will be used only for home listening. Or will i need speakers capable of even greater power handling? What do you think?

Asked by: Gregg765
You will have more power than the speakers can handle, but that doesn't mean you automatically need more power handling. It never hurts to have the headroom. If you realize that these won't get loud enough for you down the road without being over driven, then you will have to consider looking for something else.

Can this speaker be bridged at the binding posts for the use of 1 amplifiers operating all drivers, or is multi amplification the only option? Will any of the Horn Ribbon Tweeters be a good substitute for stock tweeter? 

Asked by: RacerXR
This speaker can be bi-amped or powered with one amplifier. We do not recommend replacing the tweeters in these unless you can get the originals from the manufacturer.

I have 2 Yamaha s115V pro speakers thru crown stereo rack amp & Mackie mixer. Can the BIC speaker function as a Sub by connecting only sub side of this speaker? The mixer could limit the frequencies, yes? System for home and band.

Asked by: Masterofspacetime
Technically these could be wired this way, although I would only recommend it for home applications. They would not last long in a live or pro sound setting.

I want to Bi-Amp these speakers. I will be using Kenwood Basic M2 220watts RMS@8ohm for the woofer and Kenwood KM-106 150watts RMS@8ohm for mid/tweeter. In Bi-Amp setup does the woofer and mid/tweeter still see an 8ohm load or does it see a 4ohm load? THX

Asked by: VusstoppyPro1
Each speaker is specified at 8 Ohms.

Would I be able to hook this speaker right up to my stereo reciever powering each with 200 watts rms with the bass turned up all the way? Or would I have to add a crossover myself or bi amp them with separate crossed over amps?

Asked by: ShaneU
Yes these will work plugged into a standard receiver, they do not have to be bi-amped. You would not need a separate crossover if bi-amped, they would just require two stereo amps, or four mono amps for this application. I cannot say whether they will handle a ton of output with the bass turned all the way up, this will always limit the speakers output capability and its generally not recommended at higher volume levels.
