    Went down to the W-Mart tonight with the wife, doin the weekly shoppin. Like most guys I wonder off to the sporting goods, auto, hardware, and electronics while she gets the grocerys. I was in the computer stuff ooglin the new widescreen flatpanel monitors (man I wish I had a spare $300.00) and saw some computer speakers for $24.00. Mine are old screechy cheepo's, they sound so bad I cant stand to turn em on, so I treated myself coz I like to listen to my favs while I'm on here. I got to tell ya, for $24.00 these things rock! They are Altec Lansing speakers with a powered sub woofer, model BX1121. The bass hits hard and the highs and mids are clear as a bell. They have an auxillery input for one of those mp3 gadjets, and a headphone output (so the wife dont get upset while she's watchin C.S.I.) Now I can jam in style while I'm postin my azz off!:smile2:

    Cool! Altec always did make good stuff. Their PA equipment was good anyways. Never heard their computer speakers, but can imagine they are rockin'.:cool2:

    Sounds like a good deal. I may have to check some of them out. I have some awesome Boston Acoustic speakers on one computer. They are clear as a bell even at the highest volume, which will blow you out of the room, but they cost about 10 times what you paid and will only work with a Gateway computer. My other computer is for the band but I need better speakers on that one. They are OK but don't have a sub woofer so they lack bottom end. Yours sound like the way to go.
