"poor design poor result"1.5 starson by jbcow
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.
