These are excellent speakers

lchoyt, Ebay
21 September 2014
  • Summary: These are the best sounding computer speakers I have ever had! The bass is all there, powerful - not wimpy. I'm glad I bought them! In my experience (going all the way back to the Altec microphones we had at KWLC radio when I was an announcer there in the 1960's), Altec is a very good name in audio...

They don't last

Rick H., Amazon
26 February 2011
  • Summary: I really liked them, but they only lasted about a year with gentle use. All of a sudden, the right speaker is dead, and the left speaker and subwoofer only emit a VERY VERY LOUD buzzing sound.

Best purchase I could've done

annamarieno1, Amazon
4 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought these speakers not long ago in a sale. Normal price is much higher but I could get it new for around 35 dollars. I wanted something that is not too expensive but still gives good quailty. I knew Altec from before, I had a similar one at home in France that I could not bring to the US.

Wow!

Daniel Stanfield, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow! OK, these speakers are downright awesome for their size, wattage, and price! I have a pro-audio contracting background and researched for a month or so before buying - I got the right ones, baby! 1.

Fantastic sound (only one flaw)

Alan Hogan, Amazon
25 September 2010
  • Summary: The sound is really great, much better than the Creatives I had before this. I would highly recommend these speakers to anyone looking for a 2.1 system. The sound is better than anything else I've ever heard that cost less than $400. Seriously, these are a fantastic value.

Great value and great sound! Why pay more?

Dan Frontier, Amazon
18 September 2010
  • Summary: I had previously bought a similar sized pair of Altec-Lansing speakers and sub woofer when I went away to college 10 years ago. Over time I ended up creating a short in the woofer connection because I placed my feet on it under my desk.

Very nice but..

Mystic-G, Amazon
17 September 2010
  • Summary: The speakers themselves are a little tall for me but I guess I was used to short ones anyway. Also there's a big bright blue LED light on the primary speaker that wont go off unless you turn off the speakers. I didn't see why that was so necessary to have it so big and bright.

Don't believe the hype

madnola, Amazon
14 September 2010
  • Summary: Pros: Nice looking, good quality construction, easy to set up. Cons: Poor sound quality, subwoofer distorts and pops even with low levels of bass. (no this is not at excessive volume) Satellites were ok, but lacked a fullness of sound.

Good Product.

David M. Clanton, Amazon
25 July 2010
  • Summary: A pretty good computer speaker system for the price. Another good use for speaker systems of this size is to hook them up to your cable or satellite receiver box and use them to hear the audio feed from your TV service provider.Trust me, the sound will be much better than the speakers installed by...
