Pros nice sound from the satellites
treble and bass control
Cons some distortion (sub-woofer) at high volume
Summary it's a good product for the price. I think that it could be much better if Altec Lansing do a change in the subwoofer speaker used for the bass, for sure that will resolve the bass issue. So if don't want to get distortion use the treble and bass control for your songs and movies.
Pros -cool design
-convenient AUX input
-easy set up
-strong and big bass unit, if bass is what you love then you'll love these
Cons -bass over powering
-problems with high frequency driver, sounds very scratchy as if damaged, so had speakers replaced and had the same problem, pretty weird surely they couldn't have this problem with all sets...
Summary overall for what they cost, they probably couldn be a bit better coming from such a trusted and high quality brand. though in saying that theyre certainly not the worst speakers ive heard and for what i use them for they are good. also if you love bass youll love these!
Pros speakers have a small desktop foot print
Cons - Poor sound overall
- Too much bass, even at the lowest setting.
- Can't seperately control the volume of the bass unit (as opposed to bass level overall)
- Midrange gone missing
- If you put your bass unit under the desk, that is where you have to crawl
Summary Altec Lansing have embarrassed themselves with this one. I wasn't expecting good sound for the price, but I hadn't bargained for such a poor result.
I've had to stuff an old sock in the sound expansion port of the bass unit just to cut the bass level, although this adversely affects the quality of the bass as well as reducing the bass volume.
It was a mistake to buy this one.
Pros Good sound.. replaces my older bose multimedia´s.
Cons Too much bass.... mids are muffled - desingn issue.
Summary If you´re looking for an inexpensive 2.1 set.. this is IT! I payed 49.95 for these speakers and well worth it! not the best but for the price will do the trick!
Pros Sound Quality is good as compared to other set in this range, Cool design
Cons Sound get distorted at high level
Summary Sound quality is quite impressive at a low volume
