Summary: Way too much bass... but there is a bass and treble control knob so that problem is rectified by adjusting the bass level. My adjustment ranges from 1/8 to 1/4 to 1/2 max. I had these for a few years now and there is a very low hum coming from the sub woofer enclosure.
Summary: I put a different spin on using this Powered Audio System. Their primary use is for computers, I bought a used system in like new condition for $19 and use them hooked up to my Android smart phone.
Summary: It took quite a while to get all the parts I needed to be able to connect it to the electronic keyboard that I bought it for, but now that I have them, the system works very well. The extra volume and depth of sound I'm able to get from my instrument is amazing.
Summary: I got a set of these from New Egg when they were on sale for something like 15-20$ Great speakers. Very compact. I take them to camp or out on the deck, wherever the beer is. Surprisingly loud for their size and they sound great. Had them four or five years now.
recently dusted this set off and it is still nice...

Summary: This Altec system replaced an older Altec which I used for a year, then it failed. It was a shame as it was a great sounding set of speakers. These did suffer from "mid-drop" but it can be mitigated with EQ.
Summary: 2-29-2012a Quite good, for music and as TV speakers... A friend of mine was moving, and did not needed these any more. Price, I pay for these - Lunch. Nice! Anyway, I have a Sony 32 Inch LCD/ LED TV, (KDL-32EX520) and the speakers are not as good as I'd expect (rear/ down facing, light on the base,...
Summary: If you're looking for an excellent 2.1 solution for a computer area, then look no further. I've had these for about 6 yrs and I'm still extremely satisfied to this day. It's amazing how much sound comes out of these little speakers. Can't go wrong with these.
