Summary: I got these for an absolute steal at 150 bucks from a yard sale New-In-Box. Still had the pastic and box was sealed. I was super-excited. While they did sound good, the sub was prone to over-extending its boundaries regularly. They did look fantastic and complimented every aspect about my PC's home-theater capabilities. Okay, now the bad. They broke, as they did for everybody else. Klipsch was pretty unresonable. They wanted to charge me what I paid for them to fix it.
Klipsch makes great SPEAKERS ONLY - My Amp just FAILED today!

Summary: I've had the Klipsch Pro Media 5.1 Ultras for a few years now and it happened. I powered them up, usually hearing a thump of the sub, no thump! That's odd I thought. I Checked the volume control on the computer and it was all of the way up! I plugged in headphones into the soundcard output where I would normally plug in the speakers - the music blared out! Amp is dead! The system puts out a phenomenal sound when it works. The amp is a cheap piece of junk.
Summary: wow, after reading all the bad failure reports in previous posts i sure feel lucky. i bought these 5 years ago, and to date are the best sounding speakers i have ever heard, specially the sub woofer which when testing a low frequency sine wave (at full +15) will vibrate all the windows on 3 floors of my house/ an old victorian. And i have had NO problems with any speakers.
