ALTEC LANSING VS2420 8 Watts 2.0 Gaming Speaker System - Retail


I am looking for some speakers for my gf. I have not purchased them yet, but wanted to comment on a few things said by other reviewers. A passive radiator is not a "fake speaker". A passive radiator acts like a port, giving a speaker deeper bass...

Great... while they lasted


I had a 2.1 Cyber Acoustics for several years... it was great but eventually they died. I loved these because they provided decent sound and didn't have the large bass box. Without any warning, they suddenly quit working. I am beyond the 30 day return...

I use this on a small desk in my bedroom... they worked great for 3 months

They suddenly quit working after 3 months

No Good


I would look elsewhere. There is no beating physics, if you use a speaker this small you HAVE to use a woofer to support the bottom end. Spend a little more, because these just aren't good enough for someone who cares about audio quality. I still can't...

Cheapish, controls are on the speaker itself

The people who are saying they are good must be moving up from something truly terrible, like internal laptop speakers. The highs are SO distorted and the bass is completely non existent. After only 2 weeks of playing, the right channel started making...

Great Speakers


Another reviewer made mention of distortion but i've never had that happen to me. For the price, they're a good buy. Which is why i'm buying another set today.

Preparing to buy this item from NewEgg for another system. However, bought these same speakers from Office Depot or Staples about a year or so ago and they're great. Sound is rich, base is good, volume is good, etc. Cable lengths are also great, no...

altec speakers


wish they had holes in stand plate so it could be mounted to a wall.

bought these over an year ago, never had any problems as yet. they perform very well and I've notice that speakers of this type shouldn't be over driven too much. If volume is kept at a moderate level these work exceptionally well

Hope my parents like the gift I got them. Thanks a lot Altec Lansing.

Sounded great for about a month. They are also nice to look at

These speakers are a huge disappointment, especially for Altec Lansing. I would rather have them turned off and listen to nothing instead of having to deal with the horrific static and distortion
