    Great for Music Lovers

    |
    Posted .

    After 7 years, one of the speakers of my much loved 2.1 Logitech system crapped out and it was time to look for something new. After much research I had to decide on a system optimized for gaming or music. Since I do very little gaming, it was an easy choice after listening to this Klipsch system. I am very happy with the sound and hope they last as long as my previous system. Much better than the current offerings by Logitech and Boston Acoustics. YMMV As a side note, I have repurposed the sub from the old Logitech system and hooked it up to two BIC Venturi bookshelf speakers I got on the cheap and now have a kick-a** 2.1 system for the TV to combine with the soundbar.

    Awesome Speakers, Quality Control Not So Much

    Posted .

    This product is a long-time classic and has stood the test of audio-time! I originally purchased a ProMedia 2.1 from Best Buy around 2005 and enjoyed them heavily until now when the sub-woofer died. I also had problems with the volume control knob the past few years but lived with it. Because these speakers are so awesome I was excited to see this product is still being sold and decided to repurchase the same product, however, it seems there has been come cost-cutting in the meantime. First, the new sub-woofer weighs A LOT less than its predecessor. Does that mean lower quality? There is no separate power switch, no external fuse access, speaker wires no longer detachable from the back of the speakers. Included with this review is a side-by-side photo of the new and old sub-woofer. Unfortunately, after running the wires and plugging in the new set I got loud crackling on the right speaker when playing any sound. :-/ Decline in quality control too? After taking the new set back and exchanging for another with no hassle, the second set works as expected and sounds AMAZING. I'm disappointed the product has been obviously cheapened a bit from it's original design, however, I recall paying a lot more for the original set back in 2005 (maybe double?). Let's hope I get another 10 years of enjoyment from this new set. Would have given 5 stars if I didn't have to exchange the defective unit.

    Anything branded with the name Klipsch is a winner. When I first tried this unit out at Best Buy, I was blown away. This system deliver rich, clear, full bodied sound. At the time, it by far was the most superior system Best Buy was offering by a landslide. Don't hesitate at all in taking this one home. Enjoy!!

    Great speaker system

    Posted .

    For the price, the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system is awesome! I upgraded from a Logitech x-540 system and wow! There was indeed a big upgrade in sound quality. I heard things in these new speakers I couldn't with the x-540. The mids and lows are great on the Promedias, the highs are pretty good too. The sub is tight and way more detailed compared to logitech sub.

    Amazing quality sound. I appreciate that the cords are long so they can reach my computer; however, this might be too much for people who have a computer right by their speakers. Also, the current picture does not show the covers that the two speakers have. They are solid black and conceal the moving parts of the speaker.

    Tweak the media player equalizer for great sound

    Posted .

    The ProMedia 2.1s really are great sounding once you spend some time adjusting the media player graphic equalizer (see attached photo of my settings). Straight out of the box, the sound seemed noticeably flat and quite ordinary until I found the right equalizer settings for my aged ears. I suspect those reviewers that found the sound quality poor either didn't or couldn't adjust their player for optimal sound quality or should be spending more cash to suit their high expectations. Sure, you can find better sound for two or three times the price but for a computer or mp3 player? Set up was easy but, just as with any other amp and speaker setup, pay attention that the red striped wires go into the red retainers and the black into black - it's a polarity thing. I can't speak for the system durability as I have only played about 50 songs through it. The only negative is that there is no power switch necessitating the use of a power strip to turn off the AC power to the subwoofer. That aside, I am pleased with my purchase.

    Crisp Clear Sound

    Posted .

    I purchased these speakers on Cyber Monday 2011 for a great price I couldn't pass up. These speakers are amazing. What I mean by amazing is the treble and bass always seem to be at correct levels with each other. No matter if the volume is low or high, the bass never drowns out the treble and the treble never destroys your eardrums. They should have made an option to place the speakers on their side to easily place under your monitor. See my pictures on what I did. They look amazing and was very simple to place on their sides by using the included rubber feet.

    Klipsch Rocks!

    Posted .

    I 've had these speakers for little over a month now and they are Great! I tested out Logitech z-2300's and was not impressed due to too much bass, lack of mid ranges, and short sat cables. Besides logitech is known for great PC mice and keyboards. NOT high quality PC speaker systems. At least not to me! So, I found out about Klipsch(known for making speakers for over sixty years). I believe I've made a good decision to purchase their PC speakers. My games, music, DVDs (movies) roar to life using these speakers. I listen to a variety of music from R&R, R&B, Classical, and Blues. I love the rich and deep bass. Not hard or thumping bass. I set the Main Volume to 10 percent high and keep the sub volume at the notch or a little lower (My Windows volume is set at 50 percent high) and ITS still Loud! Rocks my home! Also, like having controls on main sat for bass and volume to adjust sound. BTW I was able to get speaker while they were on sale!!!!! I want to point out that I am using a Soundblaster X-Fi Extreme Gamer Fata1lty Pro sound card and; using the SB software I am able to adjust my tremble and EQ settings etc. Having a high end sound card really brings out the full sound of these speakers! Highly recommend getting a high quality SC to go with speakers!!! THX certified is another plus! I have one speaker on my desk and the other speaker on a bookshelf. Speaker wire is long enough to go behind my desk and wall to reach my bookshelf. One final thought: There are many good reviews and not so good reviews about the Klipsch Promedia system. There have been some defective products but that should not reflect on the hundreds/thousands of klipsch speakers that are EXCELLENT! I recommend purchasing the extented warrenty and YOU will have peace of mind about your investment. I believe that these speakers can give you many years of listening enjoyment--providing that you take "excellent" care of them!! PS. Others have mentioned that On/Off switch is not in a good place due to it being on the sub. I recommend using a Indoor Plug-In Switch ( Cooper Wiring Devices-- Google) that can be used to power on and off the sub/speakers. This switch is plugged right into your surge protector etc (DO not plug the switch into a wall outlet! You just might have a power surge and fry your sub/speakers). Just flip the switch--- problem solved!!! Good night !

    Nice clear and clean sound and I listen to bass heavy EDM. Get's louder than you can stand when sitting in front of it. Blows the Bose stuff out of the water. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

    Worth every penny!

    Posted .

    Purchased these speakers after returning cheaper Creative Bluetooth speakers. I wanted the wireless solution, but was VERY surprised by the quality that came in this product. There is plenty of wire available for speaker configurations. I cranked these up to the loudest setting and they held on without distorting. The subwoofer packs plenty of punch. Do yourself a favor and stop looking at other purchase decisions and buy the Klipsch speakers. There is a reason that George Lucas branded them with his "THX" badging.

    All I Can Say is WOW!

    Posted .

    I just hooked these up and I thought I should preview a movie before time to eat supper. So I started watching The Revenant using VLC Media player. I had the audio on my pc set at 31 and turned up the speakers to about 25%. They sound loud, clear but just a tiny bit muddied. So i paused the movie, went to the equalizer settings and set it on Live. I then slightly moved the sliders up in the high frequency section and resumed my movie. There's that WOW! Man, when the bear attacks the guy you better stand back. I closed my eyes and I could swear there was a bear on me. Whew! I sure am glad I got these. Now if they'll last for a few years I'll be happy. Awesome Speakers!

    These will blow you away

    Posted .

    This is the best computer speakers i have ever had and it is my third set. I was not surprised at all of the quality, after all it's a klipsch system. The sub can hit way lower than many current top end computer speakers.........oh and yeah, it's very loud, you won't be disappointed. It shakes my entire room and echos into the living room still carrying those low notes. Music you can hear and feel. My advice to anyone is to ensure you follow the instructions as to where to place the sub-woofer, remember the rear and side with the woofer must face a wall to get that rebound and better sound quality. AMAZING product Klipsch!!!Highly recommend this!!!!!!!!

    Good for the price

    Posted .

    Best speakers for the bucks. Was thinking about the Corsair SP2500 but it was a little out of my price range. Previewed this and I loved it. If you happen to preview/test this at the store, it's harder to ask for its potential since it's in such a big open space. Bass hits ultimately hard, best believe me, so hard that bass will start to sound like it's blowing so bass needs to be lowered. A dislike I had to say about this is that there's no Treble adjustment; A volume and bass only. Just saying, if you want to hear just bass and no treble then it's not gonna work.

    Good sound / cost ratio

    Posted .

    I purchased this system to have have some tunes at work that can be heard over power tools. I installed it on a rack that I built to house the speaker system, power strip, and tool battery chargers. It works well for my intended purpose, Although I 'm generally using it doing commercial construction in indoor environments, the system also works well hanging out on the porch swing having a cold one.. My only complaint is I would like for it to have it's own power switch for the speaker system.

    Unbelieveable!

    Posted .

    This is by far the finest 2.1 system I have ever owned. The sound is crisp and the bass is particularly stunning. A friend was visiting when the system arrived via UPS, and before he left he also ordered one on the Internet. I have since ordered a second Klipsch 2.1 system for another room. The sound quality is absolutely remarkable!

    Great Sound. No Power Switch Located

    Posted .

    I Just Bought This Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 Speaker System on Mother's Day 05/08/2010. The System Offers a Great Sound. But, This Particular System Did Not Have a Power Switch. I Repeat There's "NO" Power Switch Located on the Back of the Sub-woofer. I Took Pictures as Proof. It Would Help if They Make the Sub-woofer Lighter & Smaller so It Can Be Use for Traveling...

    Not a good computer speaker set up for enthusiasts

    Posted .

    I have bee through many computer speakers, the best I ever found were Boston Acoustics 5.1 but they are digital. It seems that most computers now are only using analog, so, when I got my new computer, My BA speakers were useless. However, in my home I have an entire Klipsch 7.1 surround set up, and it is the best I've ever heard. These are the same speakers most movie houses use, so I went in believing that the Klipsch speakers for computer would be just as good. I was wrong. They are not the worst, but they do not even compare to my BA set up. The bass can be good, @ times, however, over time, it will start to distort, and then so do the satellites. Also, another problem is most people have used these types of speakers before, and have a brain. Klipsch however, didn't realize that most people use the color coded set-up on the wires, to attach their speakers. This was a big mistake. Down towards the bottom of the page, they will finally tell you that the main satellite speaker has it's own power source, and that you should NOT plug the green speaker connecter into the GREEN sound card input. You will need to change, in your computer sound card file, one of the other outputs, I used the blue, that was some of the problem with the distortion, cracking, problem, but not all of it. I called Klipsch several times trying to get this issue resolved, to no avail, they blamed my brand new 2000.00 computer for this issue. I wish BA had an adaptor for DAC( digital to analog), but they told me awhile back they do not. I'm still looking around for one, and now that this has become more prevalent in the industry, I'm sure I can find one soon. When I do, I will stop using these, I'm past my return policy, so for me, I'm stuck. But I ran out every option in the book trying to fix this issue, and nothing. I play, record, and make my own music on studio one /2 and Cubase, so for me, this was important. I guess if your just looking to listen to music quietly, and real quality is not that important to you, then these will pass. I'm just not the type that likes things that "just pass". I hope this review will @ least help someone else from going thru the nightmare I did.

    Better than I thought it might be.

    My Altec Lansing computer speakers stopped working. Since I'm a musician and was planning to do some home recording, I needed a set of speakers that were clear and didn't color the sound that was recorded. I am also on a limited budget and couldn't afford a $500 speaker system. Checking around locally (discount retailers) I didn't find what I wanted; nothing came anywhere close. I decided to go into Best Buy and give their offerings a listen. Apparently the tech that hooked up their display messed up something because only one channel of all their systems worked. At first I was not impressed; the sound wasn't that good for the money. After thinking it over however; I decided to take the system home and give it a try. After all, I could take it back. Boy! I'm glad I took it home to try it. HUGE difference! Clean and clear with a frequency response that is almost flat, and power!! I have the computer volume down to 30% and the speaker volume is set at about 9 o'clock (25%) and it is a comfortable level for me. I recommend that you take home a set of these and give them a listen; they are well worth the money!
