great speakers

Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: I disagree with all of the negative post about these speakers.I just built my wife a pc that has on-board 5.1 audio and i must say these speakers were a great add-on to the system. To put it simply they sound great. Much better than my 3 piece yamaha's.

Good Sound for the price

Erik Smith, Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: I just received my Altec Lansing 221 Speaker System. Im pretty impressed. The sub has no bass control but thats not a problem if you use any one of the current media players. The sound is pretty awesome considering the size of the speakers. And they look very sleek as well.

Very nice for the price!

  • Summary: I just bought these speakers replacing my puny speakers, and having a few kids cant afford a nice bose system. The bass is a little much but I dont mind that at all. The speakers sound great though. I am 100% happy with my purchase and my wallet is too.

Good quality system

Steven H. Platts, Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: While it is true that these speakers have no bass control (or treble for that matter), most player software includes an equalizer feature. A simple adjustment to your software and these speakers will fit any taste. I find them clear and very true to the music. Nice buy!

Too Much Bass is never Too Bad

Ricardo, Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: For those people whose eardrums are fragile, I do not recommend these Altec speakers. I for one love rich deep bass and these speakers have plenty of it, maybe too much. One thing which [is bad] is the inability to control the bass output from the subwoofer itself, because without the ability to...

Good sattelites

Aaron, Amazon

  • Summary: These speakers I must admitt do have good sattelites for there price but I dont know what you people are talking about when you say good bass. My little sister bought a pair of Creative I300 speakers and they have ALOT more bass than these.

Great music quality for 2.1 speakers

A. Dani, Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: These speakers are cool-looking, with a subwoofer that is small but capable, and a simple design. There is a outlet for headphones, and color-coded wires. Sound quality is good for its price, but it depends more on the sound card and the quality of music being listened to.

Nice bang for your buck

Amazon
8 September 2002
  • Summary: I bought these today and I must say they are quite powerful. Very nice sound but a little too much bass. The only downfall to these speakers is that you cannot adjust the bass. There is no knob on the subwoofer. So, if you like bass, you're gonna get it with these speakers.
