altec lansing 221 speakers - mud

mentalasanything, Amazon

  • Summary: This system is total rubbish. Too many reviewers are skirting around the lack of bass control: they are amplified speakers, so they should come with some sort of control, or advise to that effect at point of sale. I contacted them to ask for advice: perhaps I was missing something in the way of software. The person who responded obviously wasn't familiar with the problem, or the product either - I was told to keep them away from the walls, and put them on a carpet. Duh.

  • Summary: These sounded fine at first when I hooked them up and played music at minimum volume. When the volume is turned up past 25%, the subwoofer sounds terrible, like it is overextending itself.
