The Altec Lansing has room shattering bass and the mids and high are fantastic. Not a completely fair comparison because the Bos

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: 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.
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: I am not a demanding audiophile. But adding this to my computer makes watching videos, YouTube and just plain music very enjoyable. I have the speakers next to my computer screen and the woofer is on the floor. I've had this unit for 6 months or so, and it's still working great. No problem.
Summary: I bought these speakers mainly to play music from my computer, and they do the job. The auxiliary inputs in the back of the bass speaker is an added bonus. The only complaint that I have is that the bass can be quite overpowering, but that can be adjusted (to a certain degree) by changing the bass...
Summary: What I love about these speakers are the easily accessible dials for bass, treble and volume. They really scream and sound fantastic at great volumes. Unfortunately, they belong in the budget category for sound as well as price.
Summary: Lots of reviews talk about the wide differences people are getting sound-wise from these speakers. Speaking from a PC/Windows perspective, remember that half the sound is adjusted in your laptop/desktop.
