Altec Lansing has launched its first 2.2 powered audio system that houses a dual 4-inch subwoofer in the base of each speaker.

Claiming to set new standards for computer speakers, the boast is that the FX3022's 1.5-inch drivers give "crisp vocals and high frequency detail".

"The FX3022 is a stylishly designed and high performing, powered speaker system ideal for the i-generation and their multi-media lifestyles", said Luc Ackaert, head of the European Consumer Division for Altec Lansing.

"Whether listening to music or watching movies online, the FX3022 delivers on sound quality and looks."

With the option to connect iPods and MP3 players via the AUX input jack, the FX3022 is available in black from 1 October and is priced in the region of £99.99.
