Summary: These speakers sounded awesome, but only about a week after setting them up they stopped working! I tried everything (checked power supply, disconnecting and fully setting up again, etc) but nothing made them work again. I think the speakers themselves are amazing...must have been something to do with the seller giving me a bad set.
Summary: I absolutely loved my Altec Lansing ACS-45.2 speakers which I had used almost daily since the late 90's, but they finally died. Altec Lansing recommended this model as the replacement. Sadly the build quality and sounds produced is nothing compared to the ACS45.2 The bass is weak and lifeless compared to the ACS-45 which would make the room rumble. The mids and highs quickly distort as you increase the volume.
Summary: Aside from the speakers immediately standing out as sex toys in your living room, the quality is also a major issue. As mentioned in the title of my review, the bass is incredibly muffled and the volume of the speakers in extremely low. Altec Lansing has done better in the past with 2.1 THX certified speakers. This one just doesn't make the cut. Spend a little more and get the Logitec Z series or the Klipsch Pro Media series and you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Bought them as the design looked intriguing and they are a respected company. Oh, dear. So incredibly unbalanced. The bass (even with the sub port bunged up with something and turned down to zero) still absolutely overwhelmed everything. Kept wanting to increase the mids and treble to compensate but impossible. Such a shame.
Summary: I had the speakers for 5 mothes until one of the two speakers broke. i can still use the system but now as just a 1.1 which is rather disapointing. I f they had of broken i would give them 4 out of 5.
Summary: I bought these speakers after digging through about 100 reviews of various speakers in and around the £50-70 mark. These altecs did seem like the right thing to buy as all the reviews seemed positive. However.. just be wary before you purchase these speakers. Yes, they are loud, yes they look nice, but if you are expecting clear vocals on your music or any mid level whatsoever then you are going to be disappointed.
Summary: Los altavoces “Altec Lansing VS 4621”se ajusta perfectamente al ámbito de los altavoces, ya que la potencia que ofrece un sistema de sonido no implica, necesariamente, que su calidad sea mejor o peor. Este modelo de altavoces 2.1 es una prueba de ello ya que, a pesar de su elevada potencia, no alcanza la fidelidad de otros sistemas sinónimos mucho más modestos.
