Summary: I bought these about 8 years ago from a retail store. They have a great sound and are my primary speakers at home. The bass woofer has a nice punch - I have to tone it down for NPR podcasts [all those deep voices!]. I'll probably pick up another Alec Lansing set when these finally blow. Still going strong!
Summary: I love these speakers, they produce good quality music in various genres, and it has a nice high bass level. Ok sure a bit of control would have been nice, but I am still happy with these speakers.
Sound Quality Excellent but no Bass Control is a Problem
10 September 2011
Summary: Like many others have said, the sound is just great. But the default base out of these speakers is just way too much. I'm all for bass don't get me wrong. I won't buy speakers that doesn't have a lot of bass but the problem is there is no control nob for bass or treble. The main problem is that the bass is so powerful, it just totally overpowers the sound quality because you're hearing way too much base where it would be better to have a good balance of bass and treble...
Summary: I LOVE these speakers. I bought them used from my cousin about 5 years back, & they have produced impecable sound through the years. i con only imagine how they would have been if i bought them new,. NO NEED for a bass controll unit, the bass is set at the perfect level. love them, buy you some before i buy them all.
Summary: I purchased these speakers over five years ago. These were purchased as speakers for a high-end gaming system, and I selected this particular set because I had previously had great success with an older set of Altec Lansing. I've since upgraded most of my system... but not these speakers. When Amazon popped up to tell me to review them, I couldn't resist. They have been (and continue to be) excellent speakers.
Summary: These are amazing computer speakers. They were given to me as a gift 5 years ago. I agree with almost everyone here that the sub is a little too loud but almost every computer program (itunes, winamp ect.) has an equalizer built in. Just bring down the lower frequencies (most likely 120 Hz and below) a little bit and they are perfect. I used these speakers for more than just my computer too. They go with me to the pool, friends houses, you name it!
Summary: This speaker system is hooked up to my computer, and my TV. The sound quality is great at high volumes, and at low volumes too. One thing that dissapointed me was there is no bass adjustment on the sub. Other than that, im very happy with it.
