Other than the powercord, you pretty well have these two connections to make
Insert the orange connector from the satellites into the subwoofer, the green connector into the speaker out of your soundcard, and plug the system in and viola! A complete system, simple eh?!
Now the choice is your whether or not you want the satellite speaker stands attached or not. I recommend that you do try them out. The increase in angle directs the sound to a more favorable listening level.
CONCLUSIONS AND AFTERTHOUGHTS
I am going to cut to the chase, these are amazing speakers, there is nothing I have tested out of the 6 systems I own currently that even come close to the sound quality of these. Hmmmmm... the only set that would beat them would be there bigger brother, the 251's that I will be reviewing shortly, they can be found HERE. I especially loved watching DVD's on my one system with these attached, the sound was awesome to say the least. Now, to the critical side of the review, there one thing that I would like Altec Lansing to consider adding to this system to make it even better. There is a definite need to put a subwoofer volume control on the back of the woofer. This would, in my mind, put the cherry on the top of this overall package. This product receives our highly touted "Top Rank Award", to give it any less, and I would be short changing it. In Canada, Future Shop has just released these onto the store floors for $79.95 Canadian which is a GREAT bargain for these speakers. What are you waiting for , GO BUY THEM!!
