Very big BOOOM!

Alex Vox, Amazon
3 September 2006
  • Summary: Sound is too "boomy", it is not sound quality item. If you need it LOUD and dirty, it is Ok, if you need it PRECISE it is not it exactly. For $200 you can get pro studio monitors. The bass response may be cleaner, but the satellites sonically quite good.

Great Sound, Toxic Smell

Jai Flicker, Amazon
3 September 2006
  • Summary: I bought these speakers after repeated rave reviews from a musician friend of mine. When I plugged them in they did sound amazing. However, I immediately noticed a strong chemical smell coming from them. At first, I dismissed it as normal "new product smell," but it did not go away.

Not so great

B. Spalding, Amazon
2 September 2006
  • Summary: It might be due to the size of the room and the limited spaces I have to place the subwoofer, but no matter where I put it the bass was very much overpowering. When I finally was able to position it so that the booming/vibrations weren't too distracting, just the volume of the low notes themselves...

Altec Lansing's customer service is pathetic

R. Tribe, Amazon
2 September 2006
  • Summary: I purchased a set of these speakers after carefull consideration for my girlfriend. The controller for the volume both remote and hard wired lasted all of one day before failing. I promptly contacted Altec Lansing and they promised to send me replacement parts.

Altec Has Done Better

M. Eppes, Amazon
2 September 2006
  • Summary: I got these speakers some time ago and they sounded bad. I packed it away until I returned from a work assignment. I unplugged my old Altec's 3 way (621) and put this on hoping for better results. All I can say is that Altec has done much better. In fact, I LOVE my old Altec 3 way.
