The Altec Lansing FX5051 multimedia system includes four satellite speakers and one subwoofer. Part of the FX series, the FX5051 is the first Altec Lansing multimedia system to offer two front speakers, two rear speakers, and one center speaker versus just two speakers. In addition, each speaker comes equipped with both a 40mm midrange driver and one 18mm high-end tweeter. Like its peer, the FX4021, the FX5051 also features an isobaric subwoofer that in this case contains two 6.5” long-throw woofers (versus 5.25”). Unlike its predecessors in the FX and VS series, the FX5051 also includes a USB port that supporters a six-channel surround mode, not to mention a headphone jack, one input jack for MP3/CD/iPod players, and a wireless remote and control pad for volume/bass/treble configurations at your fingertip. The Altec Lansing FX5051 is priced at $249.95, a whopping $120 greater than the $129.95 FX4021.
