Beware buyers: new digital amp, present since 2011, is no good.
3 August 2013
Summary: This has been in production since 2001. That's a long time. And the ProMedia series has been highly acclaimed ever since for its full and limber bass response and it's satellites flat response. However, in 2011 the series was redesigned with a "digital hybrid" power supply. They went from Klipsch-designed discrete amps to a cheap chip based a/b system.
Summary: I've had this set for about 8 years and finally the subwoofer went. I feel lucky because after doing some research it seems as if this is a pretty common problem, and some go sooner than others. This system sounded great until then. I am now in search of a different brand of speakers.
Summary: Love the sound, and the set up was easy. Doesn't take up much space on the desk, either. But it needs a power button so you can turn it on after the PC boots up; you're pretty much forced into either the loud sound of the computer firing up, or needing to lower the volume as it does so, and then returning the volume to where you had it originally. In Windows a work around is to eliminate these sounds through Control Panel. But a power switch would have been much simpler.
Summary: It was between the logitech z623 and the klipsch promedia 2.1 for me being in a comfortable range for me. I listen to all kinds of music from classical to death metal and electronica to pop. First ones i decided to try were the Kilpsch... A major issue with me was there is no power button not even on the back of the sub, lame.
Summary: These speakers sound pretty good, especially for being computer speakers. With their well-balanced sound, I like them for piano/orchestra and yes I also like them for some of the contemporary Musica Urbana stuff. A power switch would have been a nice touch but I just plugged it into a wireless power switch which I found for $15 at Home Depot. My issue is with the Sub.
Summary: I bought this system a couple years ago at Best Buy. I was satisfied with the sound; however, the first time I moved the sub, the DIN plug broke off. Although the 30 day grace period had long elapsed, I took them back. The decent fella wouldn't give me my money back, but he did give me store credit. He knew they were defective. I picked up a set of Logitech Z-2300s. Same price. I realize they've been replaced, but I have to say, they sound better than the Klipsch.
Summary: These speakers are just ok in my book ... the bass is very boomy though ...I barely have the control on ...although distortion free I prefer a balanced bass ...not what todays kids think a bass should be like ... satellites are crystal clear ... i need to play with the eq a lot to get this more balanced in my system ...actually preferred my old set of altecs that i had for 10+ years! pros ...ok for the price ...especially if found on ebay or overstock stores con ..
Summary: I love this system when it works. Unfortunately, I have had two failures of the control pod which includes the volume knob, creating heavy static and interference with the left speaker. So, adios. I have just ordered a Bose system that my wife has had for 5 years that has had no issues.
Summary: I recently (today 7/11/2012) got the pro-media 2.1 Wireless speakers. I was running the Pro-media 4.1 400watt system before, which I got from Klipsch back in 1999 for use at the Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 and was the only company to introduced Klipsch speakers as a premiere speaker system for PC gaming. Then in June 2012 my house got hit by lightning taking out my 4.1's.
Good Speakers but cables and connections are very poor

Summary: I had these speakers for a few years and generally they were pretty good speakers, although a bit more expensive. Unfortunately, I just barely moved my sub woofer and the cord's DIN connector broke off making them essentially worthless. I guess there is a replacement part, but I ended up scrapping my set for something else.
