Rare HI-FI 1975 B.I.C. VENTURI Formula 6 , 6 drivers Loudspeakers. These are near top of the line for the era and competed directly with JBL models such as L65 , forums also mention that these were even used in dance halls at the time, they go real loud and give excellent bass and yet smooth on the ears.
All original except for no foam grills , they disintegrated which is common. These are the Spec I version with the six-speaker : 2 horn tweeters 2 mid-range horns with one 5 inch mid-range cone, and 12 inch long throw woofer.
Dimensions 16” x 16” x 26” weight 62 lbs each!
These sold for $580 USD EACH in mid 70's
These are now considered an audiophile collectors set
Prices of these on used market keep raising and have sold once for 2K USD
BIC, originally an abbreviation for British Industry Corporation, was established as an American corporation specializing in British products. We were among the earliest pioneers in the audio industry, distributing products including Garrard turntables, Luxman amplifiers and Wharfedale loudspeakers during the 1960's.
In 1973, BIC introduced its own brand of loudspeakers and the industry's first belt drive turntables. By the mid 1970's, BIC Venturi loudspeakers were among the top 5 best-selling brands. Eventually, the original corporation began diversifying outside of audio and shortly after the death of its founder, the company was sold.
Asking $1800 ,low ballers ignored as usual, think of this as a classic muscle car that still performs like new!
Ive been an audio manager at local electronic store, this is extremely good value compared to new chinese made tower speakers . These will retain & gain in value and treat you well for many decades !
