Altec Lansing is giving itself a face lift today, unveiling a fresh logo and some interesting new products. One of these is the new Expressionist BASS desktop speaker system, priced around $130.
The Expressionist BASS system is what is called the industry’s first 2.2 desktop speaker system. Altec Lansing deems it such because the speaker housings host dual down-firing, radiating subwoofers built into each base. These 4-inch long throw subwoofers radiate sound off hard surfaces and reflect audio in a 360-degree field. They are teamed as well with two 1½” (40mm) drivers for mid- and high- frequencies.
Other features of this speaker system include cone-shaped architecture for reported better sound value and an auxiliary input to provide connection to any MP3, CD and DVD player. It will be available this October.
