Be careful before you buy!
on 30 April 2011
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.
The bass speaker seems too powerful for the satellites and often even with the bass turned to 0% it is STILL too loud and drowns out all the top end.
I can imagine movies and games would be decent with these, but if you want to listen to music, don't buy them.
