  2. Ada885 Manual

I use my Altec Lansing ADA 885 set as my home theater speaker set, and it works great - for the most part. Granted, I got the set for $7 at the local Salvation Army, so I didn't expect it to be perfect, and originally I only bought it for the subwoofer. Then I hooked it up and was blown away.

Complete Original Mfg. USER MANUAL GUIDE for the Altec Lansing ADA885 THX Speaker System. Content info includes diagrams and schematics, troubleshooting, detailed info. In English, French, Spanish, German and Chinese. This is for the manual only, no equipment. Hard-to-find useful reference. Altec Lansing's ADA885 speaker system takes multi-channel computer sound to a completely new level! With this five-piece system, Altec Lansing becomes one of the few computer speaker manufacturers to earn the Lucasfilm THX certification and support Dolby. Digital 5.1-channel sound. It's designed to deliver theater-quality dialogue, music,.

If you have hundreds upon hundreds of songs on your hard drive, or live for FPS games, you obviously have the need for a serious speaker setup. When 2.1 isn't enough and 5.1 is too much, 4.1 meets your needs perfectly. That's where Altec Lansing comes in with their ADA885 speakers. Featuring THX Lucasfilm certification, and Dolby Digital & Pro Logic support, these speakers fit everyones needs. If music, movies and gaming are your thing, these speakers are a must.

Shipped in the Altec Lansing box, the ADA885's weigh slightly over 35 lbs. You'll see why in a bit. When you open the box, you're greeted with a bundle of cables. These cables are the ones that connect from the subwoofer to your PC.
Once you remove the cables & styrofoam, you're now facing a huge subwoofer and the rear satellites. Great packaging job, Altec, it looks like nothing moved an inch during shipping.

The rear speakers can actually mount on top of the front sattelites, making a very powerful 2.1 configuration. The quick start guide (left picture), is on the Multi-Channel side. Flip it over, and it tells you how to set it up for 2.1 mode.
