Altec Lansing Expressionist Bass FX3022 review
Bass fiends rejoice! Buy the Expressionist Bass FX3022 and you won’t need a separate subwoofer, thanks to the long-throw bass drivers, housed in the twin gloss black towers.
Setup is easy and the Expressionist Bass’ right speaker has separate up/down volume and power buttons to make the whole thing even more user-friendly. Fire it up and the Expressionist Bass lives up to its promise with lashings of bass, making it perfect for gung-ho action movies or picking out deep bass runs in everything from rock to dance. The only problem is that the Expressionist Bass’ bass levels can be too overwhelming – forcing you to do some judicious tweaking to iTunes EQ settings until you get the balance right.
Luckily, the Expressionist Bass doesn’t neglect the rest of the sound equation, delivering stratospheric highs and reasonable mid-range punch. However, we do have to question the wisdom of leaving paper bass cones exposed to probing fingers. And the cloth-covered front-firing drivers are similarly vulnerable.
