    Default Altec Lansing 315

    Anyone familar with this sealed beauty?

    10 inch woof, 3 inch dome mid, 2 inch dome tweet. Found a pair minty at a local pawn-o-matic for $119.

    Thoughts?

    Cheers,

    Yeah, buy them. They're Altecs on the cheap. In my opinion Altec made 3 kind of speakers. Awesome, great and good. I would think the 315s fall somewhere between great and good in their day. At that price, they fall well within the great category.

    I have an Altec 3-piece pc audio system, and love the hell out of it. The quality and bass if hooked up right sounds quite good compared to any other pc system I have heard (including Klipsch*

    I have not had experience with any other of their products - See if you can hook them up in the store first?

    Unfortunately Altec Lansing stopped doing quality home audio years ago. They carried on for a few years after J.B.L(ansing). left. No longer in stores, but I hear they are coming back with a 15in triaxial in-wall.

    Thumbs up

    About 9 year ago I bought a pair of Altec Lansing Model 85 2 way bookshelf speakers (5 1/4" woofer, 1" tweeter) on clearance from 6th Ave. Sounded awesome for their size w/good bass response. Also, purchased a Polk CS245i center 2 years ago and they match up pretty good.
