    • A. No, it only has a 3.5 size input. You will basically only be using these with a source featuring a headphone jack, which is fine because they are very low volume anyway and are just basic MP3 or computer speakers, not a home theater solution.

    • A. Here's the link to Altec's website for these speakers. Maybe the specifications can help or you can email Altec directly. The only connections that come with these speakers are the one Green connector that plugs into the back of the computer. I'm clueless beyond that but maybe there's a way to make it work for you. Altec may have something specific for gaming systems. Send them an email - here's the link: http://www.alteclansing.com/bxr1221-pc-computer-speakers.html

    Best Speakers for $25

    Just bought a new MacBook Pro (aluminum/black) and wanted some inexpensive speakers to enhance the laptop's audio. This compact system by Altec Lansing (a great audio company) caught my eye. They matched my new computer perfectly (aluminum/black) and cost only $25; how bad could they be? Well, all I can say is I am blown away! Not by "audiophile" sound, of course (that can set you back $10,000). But for speakers with a smooth and sweet frequency response of I would estimate at about 120-15,000hz, and a great crossover to the (small 4") down-firing and ported sub-woofer (sounds best on hardwood vs. carpeted surfaces) -- this is the best compact speaker system on the market for $25 -- clean and clear sound; top-notch value.

    If you are looking for computer speakers, spend the few dollars extra and get a 2.1 system with a sub-woofer - it makes a difference, trust me. These Altec Lansing speakers replace a set of Altec Lansings without the subwoofer, and I can definitely hear the difference. The value of these speakers is good for the price, it met my expectations perfectly, but I'm sure there are better speakers out there (if you want to spend $$$$) so I gave an overall rating of 4 stars. But for me, they are a vast improvement over the lesser 2.0 speakers.

    I think these are great speakers for the money u can't beat them. I paid $25, and they are worth every penny. I thought they looked bad, but they are the perfect height. The sub is just enough. Having a volume control on the speakers is great. I have not turned them up high yet, but if they are right in front of u how load do they have to be. Heck I might buy a set for my mp3 player. So if you want a good set of small speakers buy these....

    i bought this hoping to add sound to my 32" spectre tv which tops out at volume 23 (goes to 70 but doesnt get louder!) and this works perfectly, the cords are perfect length, the speakers are small but loud enough for enjoyable viewing and the little sub adds just enough bass to gaming with out waking my lil one on the other side of the wall. i tested it out with a radio and found the sub to be below my standards so i went to remove the speaker from the box and reverse it (sometimes increases the bass two fold) but this was not the case, upon removing the four screws and lifting the speaker out i noticed a pad, made of insulation in the sub box used as a sound dampener, so i removed that and it did increase the bass enough to keep me satisfied over all its a good little speaker set, very small and discrete with good sound i am a speaker FANATIC and this meets my standards so i recommend buying if your looking to add more clear crisp sound to what you have, be it a ipod, radio, or in my case a flat screen tv BUT i wouldnt recommend it if your looking to rattle the windows in your room

    A few weeks ago, I purchased a Logitech 980-000023 S220 Multimedia system and was VERY pleased with that purchase. I originally purchased the Logitech system to hook up my MP3 player out in the garage. However, I was so impressed with the sound, that I decided to use the system in the house with my LED HD TV. So, needing another system, I bought the Altec's at a local Wal Mart based on the reviews. My expectations were high since the Altec system got reviews like the Logitech. HOWEVER, after setting them up side by side and listening to the sound quality and performance, the Logitech were MUCH more powerful without distortion. Turns out the output on these are lower than the Logitech. They do sound very good but you just can't pump up the volume on these without distortion like you can on the Logitech. My advice...get the Logitech speakers for the same price. I purchased both to figure that out. Despite being somewhat disappointed, I plan on keeping the Altec's since they do produce great sound at lower volume.

    I am very pleased with these speakers, for less than $20 I really didn't expect much, but got a lot. They are not going to rival a $600 set of studio monitors, but they aren't studio monitors, and they only sell for $20. As long as you aren't using your computer as a replacement for a home stereo these speakers will probably serve you well. I have had much more expensive computer speakers and much less expensive, and there is no doubt that you will not find a better value dollar for dollar than these. No, I am not a fanboy, I am just very pleased after several far more expensive disappointments.

    Moving some furniture around, I broke my old 2.1 subwoofer, a sturdy, heavy, LOUD, thumping 2.1 speaker set.. I didn't want to wait til payday so I could spend a few bucks more for a better set of speakers. I wanted something right away. I read the reviews for all the $20-30 "2.1" speaker systems and felt good about purchasing this one. When I went to pick it up at Walmart, the box was *tiny* and weighed close to nothing.. Still, I had hope. I hooked them up and they were mediocre at best. I thought I could punch up the bass by fussing with the EQ on my music player, but what about internet videos? In short, I tried to make a lot of excuses for these speakers, but they just don't cut it. I've spotted a 32w speaker system (not 12w or whatever this is) on Walmart.com for about $40 that I will be purchasing to replace these. These will probably get handed down to my girlfriend .. for the kitchen. BUYER BEWARE!!
