Summary: Been almost a year since I bought these, and I have to say, I am not as impressed with these as I was with the speakers/subwoofer from ~2003. The bass nob seems like there isn't any adjusting going on, it's like on/off. And the off position still put out a mumbling bass sound that seems to cover up the other frequencies. Sounds like there are hardly any highs being delivered.
Summary: Really nice speakers. Good solid tight bass, I had to turn it down a bit to balance properly, as I am not 15 and enjoy things like vocals and instruments. But the system does a good job of presenting a sound stage on music that has stereo seperation in it, the volume is more than adequate for a computer system or even filling a room with music. And of course, they look great.
Summary: I have one thing to say and that is they were great to me. I had to return them and did. they said they checked the tracking and said it was delivered. I have tried to help as best I can but am having a very hard time. I am sorry. I think if I have to return anything again I am going to get some one to sign for it. That way I will be shure it gets to the right people! Even if it cost is a little more TRUST ME ON THIS ONE!!
Summary: VS4621 is quite a good product overall, it has a really powerful bass, some called it bass monster, although the sound is dominated with bass, i still find the other sectors not bad at all.
The biggest problem with VS4621 is that it is so easily get distorted and the only way to solve it is to play it close to the maximum volume, of course by lowering your computer volume at first, then play it normally, done.
Pros: Superb bass, nice design
Cons: Easy to get distorted, weird tweeter placement
Summary: nice combination of highs from the tweeters and a clean bass (that I expected from Altec after having a pair of earlier speakers )can thump the floor if you want it too, great price for a really nice classy, impressive looking sound system. We did have one glitch where the wife said it sounded funny but it was Christmas day (wife loved the box when she saw it , she loves music and now is on her PC all day listening etc.
Summary: I borrowed these speakers for a a get together I had at my house and my system couldn't connect ti an mp3 player or phone and I absolutely loved them. The sound was of quality, liked them so much that even a friend of mines that was at my house wanted to buy as well.. just placed the order for two systems one for myself and her. So I really don't kno why these people are rating low. plug in and enjoy you will not go wrong !!!
Summary: I would like to say that the speakers just as expected. I have already had an experience with Altec Lansing speakers and I was pleased with the way they performed, that's my reason for purchasing them a second time.
Summary: Sooo, basically the sub is extremely powerful for the price BUT the satellite speakers sound a little "crunchy" and weak. To be more descriptive, the satellite speakers are where the voice comes from but they are overpowered by the bass of the sub. For my college dorm room they do the trick because nobody around here really knows about music like I do. Overall I would recommend them for the price.
Summary: The Speakers sound great. The manufacturer left out the cord length which I think is too short. They also never responded to an email of mine to customer service if there was something I could do about it. Past speakers I bought from them had longer speaker cord lengths meaning I could spread them out a bit or get them to the shelf I wanted them on.
