the ATP3: they look cool, but produce average sound

boof, Amazon
3 January 2003
  • Summary: these speakers look sharp, especially alongside a black flat-screen monitor. connecting the speakers is a breeze and only takes a couple of minutes. the sound is average, and at least part of this can be attributed to the 3" drivers on the satellites being pointed down at the desk instead of out towards the listener. the satellites distort fairly easily as volume increases, and they don't deliver much in the way of midrange.

Nice if you are looking for bass, not vocals...

Stephen Paul Webb "Believer of Truthiness", Amazon

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that if you are looking for speakers that are going to produce an amazing amount of bass, then look no further. You have found your speakers. Click on Add to cart and you are good to go. However, if you are looking for well balanced speakers for vocal driven music (i.e. musicals or opera, or even some pop music) then these aren't the best bet. All music sounds good with these speakers -- if you are listening to it loudly.

Not terrible, but no ACS 45.2

Richard Malthaner, Amazon
9 August 2001
  • Summary: Some Background: I have a year old pair of Altec ACS 45.2 speakers that I have always thought sound phenomenal for the price. The only problem I could find is that they sounded so much better at ear level....I had to raise them up. I saw the ATP3's and thought...wow....tweeters at ear level. I can't imagine why I didn't realize that a downfiring 3" midrange would be worthless. What really gets me is that the "experts" at Altec Lansing didn't figure it out..
