The BIC America FH6-LCR Dual 6.5-Inch 175-Watt LCR Speaker with Mid/High Frequency Horn is not your run-of-the-mill center channel speaker. Unlike other center channel speakers this BIC is not a one trick pony, it can also be used as surround, main front or rear speakers. It features dual 6.50 inch woofers and a 6.25 inch dome horn tweeter to produce a wide range of awesome sound. The horn drivers deliver output up to 116dB (perfectly suited for a live concert) and quiet enough to deliver whisper quiet dialog with unmatched clarity.
The FH6-LCR all channel speaker is one of the most versatile speakers you find. It can be used in just about every position in your home audio system, except for the sub woofer. The dynamic frequency range of the drivers makes it possible to deliver a wider range of sounds. This includes kicking out 116 dB from a live rock band to very quiet whispers of movie.
The quality of the enclosure has a lot to do with the quality of the sound that comes out. BIC America made sure that the materials they used to produce the speaker box was nothing but the highest quality. BIC America also included the wall mounting hardware so that if you decide to mount it on the wall instead of putting it on the shelf you don’t have to buy additional hardware.
The secret behind the BIC FH6-LCR speaker’s ability to be used in several different positions within your home audio system is the fact that it includes two 6-1/2 inch injection molded woofers and a large 6-1/4 inch mid/high frequency aluminum domed horn tweeter. The horn tweeter uses special Neodynium magnets to produce the sweet sound you hear.

We discovered quite of few consumer reviews posted online on a variety of sites. The majority of the people really liked them for a number of reasons. However, several people left some less than flattering comments despite giving them very high ratings.
Many of the reviewers really love the overall quality of the speaker, including the box and connectors. The dynamic range is unbelievable according to one of the reviewers and sound is extremely crisp and clear. Unless you really know your speakers and realize that it can take some time for a good speaker to be broken in you may be disappointed with sound at first, but after a while the true sound comes shining through.
Some reviewers actually thought that vocals tended to be over exaggerated making them less suited for a center channel speaker. At the same time the upper bass range lacked much punch. Leading us to believe that you would be better off looking at a bit pricier center channel speaker.
In the end, it would appear that the BIC America FH6-LCR Dual 6.5-Inch 175-Watt LCR Speaker with Mid/High Frequency Horn is a quality speaker for the money, but you would be better served spending a bit more for a higher quality true center channel speaker like the Klipsch RC-52.
