Product Description

Amazon.com

Amp up the audio from your digital audio player or gaming console with the three-piece Altec Lansing FX6021 speaker system. Using Altec Lansing's proprietary InConcert technology, sound is directed straight ahead and to the sides, not up and down as you'll find with other three-piece speaker systems. The FX6021 has two ultra-slim satellites with a flat profile that feature a total of twelve one-inch neodymium micro drivers, with each pair of micro drivers powered by its own discrete amplifier. Rattle the room with low frequency bass from a 6.5-inch ported subwoofer set in a low-resonance wooden cabinet. The satellite speakers offer 12.5 watts of power apiece while the subwoofer pumps out 50 watts--for a 75-watt total.

Altec Lansing's InConcert uses three separate amplifiers to power a total of 12 high-performance, full-range micro drivers. A frequency filtering system beams intense, concentrated audio straight out. You'll get sound that is pure, clean, and uncluttered by reflections from the ceiling or floor. Whether you're sitting in front of the speakers or several feet away, you'll hear every nuance of sound with virtually no volume drop off.

The FX6021 comes with wireless remote and a wired control pod, both of which can control bass, treble and master volume. With the auxiliary input jack, you can connect to two different audio sources (such as your PC and an MP3 jukebox) at the same time. It also features a headphone jack for private listening.

What's in the Box
This package contains 2 satellites (with bases), 1 subwoofer, wired controller, wireless remote, 3.5 mm audio cable, and printed manual.

I've owned more computer speakers than I care to admit and now I've finally found the best. The sound is crisp and clear, stereo imaging is excellent.

Yes, the bass is a little quirky at times (sometimes too boomy and other times too thin), but on balance, they are the most enjoyable computer speakers I have ever owned.

When you spend so much time in front of the computer the extra money is well worth it when you factor in all the hours and all the years of great listening.

The form factor is perfect. I have a large monitor in a computer hutch and precious little space on either side and these speakers fit perfectly.

The little remote and the headphone jack option are also very cool.

I highly recommend these speakers.

Advice for previous reviewer:
If you get a rattling in the sub, the troubleshooting guidebook says one of the screws is probably loose on the back --- just tighten it up.
For everyone:
You can plug three different sound sources into this unit easily --- dvd/ps2 rca stereo input, computer single line input, and an auxillary input on the control pod for your tape player/mp3 player/ etc.
There is some static in the gaps of music (which I have come to expect from speakers at the volume I use them). Other than that, the sound is loud - crisp and undistorted even at ear shattering volumes.
Electronic/percussion/r&b/beat driven --- astounding.
Ambient -- gets me high.
Piano -- sounds right in front of you save for slight static in the gaps.
Rock/Pop/Jazz -- clear, all instruments are easily differentiated.
Spoken -- no distortion, some static.
Strings -- powerfully intense, some static in the gaps.
Note -- these speakers are very responsive to your software equalizer and to the control pod's bass/treble levels. What sounds good for one CD won't sound as good on the next. For someone like myself that listens to music from dawn til' dusk and back again, I love getting the feel for each instrument in a mix and trying to adjust the levels accordingly. For others, it might be a deterrence.
PS - REMOTE CONTROL!

...You will love these speakers! As soon as I plugged them in, the sound brought a smile to my face. When you spend more money on your equipment, you expect to get better results. This system keeps that promise. The six speakers in each unit produce a clear crisp sound. The mid range is clear without the muddy sound I hear in less precise speakers. Musical instruments sound separate and distinct, voices have a good presence that is not drowned out by the background tracks.

This system is plugged into my Sony television. It improves the audio on cable and satellite programs but it really shines when we play DVD movies. The enhanced sound tracks come alive and we get more of a movie theater experience. The control head on this speaker system has an input jack so you can plug in an iPod or MP3 player and listen to the player without unplugging the television (or computer) - very handy and thoughtful of Altec.

Compared to the JBL Creature II speakers or the Harman/Kardon Soundsticks, this set from Altec Lansing is superior. The speakers play louder, the placement is not so critical and the sound is more pleasant to listen to over time.

All right I admit it. I am an audiophile with an advanced case of high end snobbery. For years I carted my 6 feet tall Magneplanars around the country. Finally my wife said no more. She wan ted something smaller and since I was changing teaching jobs and moving 1500 miles my beloved Maggies and $100 per foot speaker cable were sold.

After much research these were found for 100 dollars. Greatest buy I've made in a long while. The sound out of the box is open and clean with a touch of midrange glare. Side to side imaging is stellar as is detail but image depth is just fair. Bass is not very extended but is clean. This is in comparison to a of $3000 planar speakers with $1600 dollars worth of cable. The Altec's were enjoyable in a way I used to listen to music when I was in college.

The cool thing about the 6021's was how good they can sound! I ran them through my upsampling 24 bit jitter reducing DAC on a good player with 2 meter audiphile interconnects and WOW!! These baby's sounded incredible! The detail, depth and clarity was back. Midrange glare was gone. Bass was now clean and powerful. They are my main speakers!!

THe lesson is if you can play with these they are nearly true audiphile quality in the mids and highs. Feed them good source material and you will be rewarded with some of the best sound you can get for under $500.

If anybody has any other tweaks for these let me know. Try putting the bases on 3 vibrapods and watch the image come open up. Buy these now and have fun.

Back in 1995, I bought my first set of computer speakers. Not only do I still have them, but I'm listening to them right now. I paid $150 for 2 speakers and a subwoofer made by Altec Lansing. I thought I was nuts to pay that much for speakers, but I justified it after paying $4,200 for the computer! (PowerMac 8100 for those of you wondering.) Times sure have changed.

For years I thought I had the best computer speaker system ever made. - That was untill my iMac G4 arrived in 2002 with the Apple Pro speakers made by Harman Kardon and a matching iSub powered woofer. The two systems were in the same room, playing the same MP3's, and I was shocked that my old Altec Lansing's actually sounded muddy next to the transparent globe replacements. That taught me a valuable lesson: Most speakers sound good if they are the only ones in the room and you have nothing to compare them to.

So here it is, September 2005, and I'm looking for a set of premium 2.1 speakers for my new iMac G5. I started reading reviews like a mad man. You can read reviews till your cross-eyed, but because sound is subjective, you absolutely have to go to a local store and try them out. And since most speakers sound good when not testing them out side-by-side with others, it's mandatory you try several hooked up in a row to hear the true differences. Luckily, I found a row of "quality speakers" ($50-$400) sitting up at CompUSA. Much to my disappointment, the FX6021 speakers not only look cheap in person, they sound terrible for the price bracket they're in. I was skeptical that the 1" speakers (albeit there are 12 of them) would be able to produce a true mid-tone sound, and I was correct. I heard many reviewers admit the bass is not as good as other systems, and they are dead on with that complaint.
