    Smile I decided

    I decide to keep the Altec Lansing BXR1121 since they have a sub and I think the sound is actualy much better since it can go low as 30hz plus I save alot of money and got The Sims 2 Pets to add to my Sims 2 game. The other one I had only goes 50hz which isn't really low bass. I did listen to the other Altec Lasing speakers that cost like $100 but they just have more power but the sound I think is more clean on the ones I got. The only think is mine doesn't go really loud but at low volume it sounds sooo good and clear and good punchy bass I can feel. Very natural sounding speakers. The best one I ever heard for $24.88 I got at Walmart. They are very close to my JBL S26 I use to have but I sold them long time agao.



    Here's the specs for the new speakers I got.

    These speakers do not goto 30hz. No matter what the specs say. I thought you would have learned by now. I guess not, considering you keep taking backwards steps. The best thing you ever owned where the JBL S26's and now you own crappy computer speakers. What gives ?

    Judging from his past posts in the past. It seems he has some sort of mental and or learning disabilities. This is the only explanation for his posts. Along with him admitting his boyfriend has a mental problems. He has probably been sheltered his entire life by his parents due to his disabilities and his only social outlet is probably this site.

    So I will return the Altec Lansing since I won't need it anymore and I will be getting my dream speakers. When I got the S26 that was for $150 pair when I found it on the net but the M-Audio speakers aren't that cheap so the cheapest he found was $225 and I helped him find it on Yahoo Shopping.

    Sweetest setup I ever had was when I got a nice deal on a truckload of
    Sony MDR-E828LP Fontopia Earbuds, I'll tell you what.... a little creative wiring, and 3,520 pairs (that's 7,040 speakers) of earbuds pasted around the walls creates the ultimate surround experience...... to top it off I ran TEN (10) homemade passive subwoofers by removing the speakers from a wholesale lot of REALISTIC brand Alarm clocks...... around 7:30 every morning my system was SLAMMING......

    sorry..... just the quick search I did from the old posts inspired this non-sensical rambling.

    Hey Spanky,

    Glad you like them. What kind of music are you playing?

    I like that band called YES. Chick Corea's not so bad either. Good choices there.

    Yes is one of the great prog rock bands of all time. Stellar musicianship and layers upon layers of tracks. Great music for great speakers. If you like them, you'd probably like Asia as well. They are like a pop version of Yes, not as challenging but perhaps a bit more melodic with more pop-friendly hooks. Give 'em a listen.

    Congrats on your new speakers, Spanky. Enjoy them.

    I found a dealer that sells the BX5a and yes the highs are clear but I do have to say that the cheap Altec Lansing speakers aren't really that bad compaired to them I acutaly think I hear more low end on the Altec Lansing speakers since it has a sub. Yes the overall is more clear sound on the BX5a but I mean for $24.88 on Walmart for the Altec Lansing they sound great and very clear. So the Altec Lansing BXR1121 isn't bad speakers as you say they are meaing just because they are cheap doesn't mean they are bad. They don't go loud as the M-Audio ones but I was still impressed that the Altec Lansing sound good too.
