Altec Lansing BXR1221 2.1 Speaker


The PC speaker market will never tire of belting out options for its varied consumers, the latter ranging from gamers to ‘DivX' junkies to music lovers. The model we have today is by Altec Lansing, a very popular brand in this segment; named the...

At an MOP of Rs. 1,499, this model really comes reasonably priced, but lacks power. It looks very cute and neat, has high portability, and also has a more than decent frequency output balance. Anyone not really interested in louder sound levels, will...

Altec Lansing Expressionist Bass FX3022


While the great-looking Altec Lansing Expressionist Bass FX3022 multimedia speakers fall a little short for music listening, their potent bass makes them a better choice for gaming and movie watching.

Impressive, striking design; subwoofers are built into the base of each speaker, which provides ample amount of bass; more suited to gaming and movie watching than music listening.

Treble is aggressive and brash; no remote.

Altec Lansing FX4021


With its massive subwoofer, the Altec Lansing FX4021 certainly looks intimidatingas does the $129.95 (direct) price tag. Still, it makes an excellent desktop choice for gamers and action-movie fanatics.

Deep, thunderous subwoofer. Nice "SFX" function for gamers. Good overall audio quality for music and DVDs. Useful, small remote. Powerful output.

Subwoofer is pretty big. Hard to tell whether "loudness" or "SFX" is selected at times. Mid-high frequencies seem a bit muffled when EQ is flat.

Good sound. Small footprint. Controls are easy to access. Inexpensive.

Main speakers fall over easily.

For the money, you really can't go wrong with the Altec Lansing VS2321 2.1 speakers.

Altec Lansing VS2621 Computer Speakers


Tired of the tinny sounding speakers built into your laptop, or the cheap speaker set that came packaged with your new PC? A high quality 2.1 speaker set that utilizes full-range drivers as well as a powered subwoofer could quite well be the answer...

Good sound quality, low price tag for a 2.1 speaker set, aux input for use with an MP3 player

Short cable between the side speakers, aux input must be unplugged to use the main input, no bass control in the subwoofer module

A few nitpicks keep the VS2621 from receiving higher marks. I would have loved to see a subwoofer bass control built into the bass module, I don’t like the fact that the aux input and the main 3.5mm input can’t be used in parallel and the cable...

Altec Lansing FX5051


Great for office work and road warriors, but inadequate for gamers, graphics professionals, and media center users.

Clever design, Excellent sound reproduction, Deep bass, Powerful control pod with front inputs & outputs, Remote control bundled, USB & analog audio, PC & MacOS X compatible

Low hiss always present, Somewhat pricey, USB audio doesn't support multi-channel in all games, 'Free' wall mounts not included, No S/PDIF input for gaming consoles

Altec Lansing FX4021


Unless in a noise critical workplace every PC needs a set of speakers and really the only decision to be made is whether the system needs 5.1 or 2.1 sound. Chances are many people will not have the space for a 5.1 system so this really makes the choice...

I have spent much time testing and listening to Speakers and Sound Systems and have remarked of the quality of many of the "All in One" systems available. But what about great sound from the PC - especially from a Notebook Computer? While great strides...

The FX5051 is available at and at on-line merchants.

Review: Altec Lansing FX4021


A few years back, we took a look at Altec Lansing's FX6021, a speaker system that screams Power Mac G5. With an appropriately-proportionate price tag, you got a nice set of speakers that fit in well with your system. Unfortunately, there are more...

Fast and easy set up, powerful bass, satellites can hang on a wall or stand on a desk, control pod's accessibility, multiple inputs

Best suited for only certain types of music, wall-mounts not included

The FX4021 is a decently-priced, more competitive alternative to its more expensive sibling, the FX6021.

Altec Lansing FX4021


Altec Lansing recently announced two new speaker systems, and we are taking a look at the smaller of the two. The FX4021 is a 2.1 system that promises high-end sound in a compact, and stylish package.

Not much can be said about the installation process, except that it was easy. Could it be anything but, really? 5.1 systems require more cords to be used, but that's not a problem here. The most difficult part would be finding a spot for the satellites...

Product Specifications

Forget modesty, Altec Lansing really did it this time. The new Altec Lansing VS4221 speaker system is a stunner. Judge it by its specially engineered micro drivers that deliver crisp, clear highs. A down-firing 3" driver for a warm, uniform sound around the room. And, of course, the long-throw subwoofer that packs enough bass to register on the Richter scale. The result is a rich, robust sound that very few systems can match at any price. And just look at it! The Altec Lansing VS4221 system is sleek and beautiful. A pivoting stand allows you to orient the micro drivers so they direct sound straight to your ears. And a convenient wireless remote and caddy put the controls right at your fingertips. High performance. High class looks. The new Altec Lansing VS4221 system is the perfect package.
