Altec Lansing VS4121 Review

Finding the most for your money in speakers is always a tough choice. Speakers claim extremely high levels of wattage and seem to deliver only fractions of what they state and worse by the time that people realize it. The speakers are most likely quite damaged. Other famous items are poor drivers chosen for the speakers resulting in muffled sounds or poor high frequency response due to dependence on the midrange to handle all of the sounds. The VS4121 features quite a few drivers and the classic long-throw 6.5" sub with it to take on this issue.
