Altec Lansing VS2521 detailed review

Underpowered And Overpriced

The Altec Lansing VS2521 is a 2.1 speaker set whose design looks a lot like the BXR1121 speakers from Altec Lansing. These aren’t the prettiest speakers for sure, and the woofer looks like a small grey box.


The woofer has a downfiring driver and a lot of great things can’t be said about its performance. The satellites are loud but the woofer isn’t all that impressive. It isn’t loud enough to complement the satellites, and distorts easily. The low range frequencies aren’t generated properly either.


The satellites on the other hand are really great. The sound was crisp and detailed through all of the test tracks we ran on it. The poor bass means it isn’t as great for movies or games. For music that doesn’t depend a lot on bass, these speakers would be great. The highs aren’t very sturdy either. When we played tracks with choir vocals, the high-end range easily distorts. Even though they are rated at 28 W RMS, they are still pretty loud.


One satellite speaker has controls for the treble, bass and the volume. There are connectors for mic-in and headphones.
