Product Details

BIC RtR-EV15 15" 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" Biampable Floor Speaker
BIC RtR-EV15 15" 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.

On the woofer, what size is the voice coil and how much is the "throw" in inches and under shipping what does "truck only" mean

Asked by: BuckNut68
Unfortunately the manufacturer does not specify the voice coil size or Xmax on the woofer. You may be able to contact BIC directly for more information.

Can I run these speakers with a full range or straight signal from my receiver/amp?

Just wondering if I can run these in a full range set up without the need for a crossover or any filter type thing.
Asked by: Kaygun
Yes, the great thing is that you can run th full range and of your need increases, buy a crossover and another amp for the sub and biamp.

Q. about the impedance.. Does it dip like other speakers.

Simple question but I'm not sure who would know this, I finally realized a good place to ask . Here.Does the impedance dip with these tower speakers? It says 8 ohms here:http://www.bicamerica.com/showpage.php?brand=3&type=15&spkrID=120but I'm wondering if it dips or goes down into 6 or 4 ohms.I Remember reading about the cerwin vega towers, I think VE 12's they dip into 4ohm and different frequency's.Thanks in advance for any info or answers.oh another thing, is it true that this speaker is built with help from Dr. HSU.- There's a review on amazon about this. Not sure if it's 100% I should read it again.here(amazon review related to my second question)http://www.amazon.com/review/R2JADM691AVZKF/ref=cm_cr_dp_title?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B003H3L76I&nodeID=172282&store=electronics
Asked by: Kaygun
Yes, the impedence (Z) of any speaker or speaker system will change as the frequency changes. The change is minimal and will not damage an amplifier.I have no information about who participated in the design or engineering of this speaker.

Does the 15" woofer have a crossover on it or is it running full range?

Asked by: MSUbrenton
This is a full range speaker with the amp inputs separated to allowthe use of two power amps to provide power. Connect the larger and most powerful amp to the sub and the smaller amp to the mid / high input. The speakers internal crossover properly divides the frequencies to the appropriate speaker.Because of design the sub 15" may be receiving a full range signal however it's efficiency decreases as frequency increases and the mid / high takes over and balances the sound.This is a simplified bi-amp set up as opposed to an electronic crossover being between the pre amp and power amps.
