Pros Sleek look, good midrange and treble, inexpensive.
Cons Bass is WAY too "boomy."
Summary I bought these speakers in 3/05 from Best Buy for $99. They sounded fine in the store. When I hooked them up to my office PC, I discovered that the bass is extremely boomy, even at low levels. This is incredibly annoying. I'm trading them in this weekend for a different system.
Pros great trebble and middle, cool design, great controls, middle sub on bottom of satelites
Cons Bass Subwoffer cant handle any bass-DISTORSION
Summary Everything about these speakers is fantastic except for the bass. I listen mainly to rock, blues, acoustic, and ragaee which all in all doesnt have a lot of bass. With the volume at 12 o'clock, which isnt very loud with the computer at half volume, i had to dial the bass down to almost nothing. I got sooooooo much bass distorsion. Altec lansing usually makes a great speaker. Part of my decision was based on the fact that i have the im3 ipod speakers which are AMAZING, but these speakers come far from par. I hope they make a good new set soon. Im going to trade them back for the Logitech Z-2300 which are on sale for 99 at future shop right now. For shame altec lansing. I thought You were better than that!

Summary Guys, if you want a 2.1 speaker system you have to try these out. My Pros: this is thing has really clear and crisp sound, it has easy controls, is somewhat cheap, and looks pretty cool. My Cons: The volume control is little awkward. Whne you first start to turn the knob, There is absolutely no sound until you get in between a 45 degree rotation and a 90 degree rotation. The back of the speakers are a little bulky...There is a little to much bass (which really isn't a problem because you can just turn it down (-_-), and mine smelled like **** when it came out of the package
Pros I love the sound, and the looks of these speakers they have lots of bass without being muffled or over bearing. I was Very Impressed.
Cons have not found any yet.... Still enjoying my new toy!
