Altec Lansing's motto for its striking $129.99 Expressionist Bass FX3022 PC multimedia speakers is, "All the bass in half the space." The concept is a good one. You take the subwoofer that normally sits on the floor, shrink it down, and integrate one into the bottom of each speaker. That way the user gets an ample amount of bass without having to deal the extra gear and wiring.
But how did they ultimately perform in our tests? (Hint: good for gaming and movies, not as great for music).
