Altec intros amp-like portable speaker

Altec Lansing on Tuesday introduced a new gaming console speaker system, its Stage-Gig. Resembling a guitar amp, the amplified speaker is made to work with Rock Band, Guitar Hero, and DJ Hero titles on any gaming console. The 6.5-inch woofer contains a horn-loaded silk tweeter and has 40W of power. For easy portability, a carrying handle is built in, and the device can be daisy-chained with others thanks to a built-in AC outlet and RCA connections.

Top-mounted controls include a volume knob and users can easily hook up the Stage-Gig to the Microsoft Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii and Sony PlayStation 2 and 3. The Altec Lansing Stage-Gig will ship in early November, priced at $100.
