The satellites' exclusive Klipsch MicroTractrix horn maximizes clarity and high-frequency dispersion from CDs, MP3s, streaming radio programs, and other audio. The high-output, digital-hybrid-amplifier-driven ProMedia 2.1 offers a convenient headphone jack and dual stereo analog inputs, one for a more or less hard-wired connection from your computer's line or headphone output jack, the second to accommodate a portable audio device such as an MP3 or minidisc player/recorder.

Klipsch operates with a philosophy that demands accuracy in every aspect of sound reproduction, which--in the case of the ProMedia 2.1--has resulted in THX Certification. THX is an exclusive set of standards established by the world-renowned film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., and products undergo rigorous quality and performance tests in order to receive this certification.

    Amazing 2.1 system for your PC, MP3 player etc…, April 19, 2002

    This review is from: Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System (Black) (Personal Computers)
    Sorry to be so Gushy…but I really LOVE these speakers. Having owned high-end speaker systems from Logitech, Labtech & Creative, I have always enjoyed good sound for games and music. As time has worn on, I began to play more music and fewer games on my PC. As a result I began looking for a quality 3-piece system to replace my 5-piece surround system.
    I searched through all the companies I had purchased from before, when I stumbled across the Promedia 2.1’s… and let me just say….
    WOW!
    … These speakers are CLEARLY head and shoulders above all other 3-piece systems – in both power and sound quality.
    You MUST hear them to appreciate the difference.

    PROS:
    – Amazing sound: clear highs, full mid-range and rich tight bass.
    – Power that rivals many home systems (200w-total)- Satellites (35w ea) – Subwoofer (130W)
    – Convenient headphone and auxiliary input jacks.
    – Convenient and separate controls for volume and bass.
    – Very attractive casing.
    – Very easy setup
    – THX certified (which means you will hear things you won’t hear on other speakers).

    CONS:
    * I cannot think of anything major, but a few drawbacks might be…
    – Speaker system does not have a power switch on the satellite, it is located on the sub-woofer, which is not easy to get to (as it is typically tucked out of sight). However, the problem of shutdown is easily addressed with a power strip.
    – [Costly,] compared to other systems (…though they are WELL worth the difference).
    – Has horn tweeters, which are too “bright” for some folks… though I LOVE them.

    Everything I play through these speakers sound great (DVD’s, MP3’s, Digital Camcorder movies, tape player etc.)I do not believe a better 3-piece system exists on the planet.
    If you are a gamer or home theater enthusiast, I would encourage you to look at this systems “big brothers” (the 4.1 & 5.1 Promedia systems) as they are even more amazing (and pricier) for games and movies.

    If you are in the market for a great speaker system I HIGHLY recommend Klipsch to you.

    ——–Updated 4/21/12——————

    Okay so after 10 years of constant and strenuous use my system gave up the ghost. The other night the sub-woofer blew, in large part because I played back a converted home movie that had high distortion…which of course wrecks speakers.
    My bad!

    Now onto the good news.
    The next day, I went to Best Buy to buy a replacement system. Much to my delight there was my beloved Promedia 2.1 and the much hyped Logitech Z623 Speaker System side by side. The Best Buy guy was obviously a fan of Logitech, cuz he waxed on how the z623 was an ultra efficient design that had such a clean sound and great power. I thought awesome… perhaps after 11 years someone had overtaken Klipsch for the best 2.1 system under $200. I happen to have my iPhone with me sporting a bevy of play-lists. A little Rock, Country, Jazz, Hip hop and a high energy dance-mix.

    So let the comparison begin.

    On paper both systems spec out a lot alike, in price, configuration and advertised wattage.

    The Logitech z623 is a solid system. It is nice looking has good power, clean sound, nice controls and on/off button. It performed well with jazz and instrumental arrangements like symphony and saxophone. It may have a little better sound image the the Klipsch on those genres of music…however is it better overall system then the Klipsch?

    Not in my book!

    The Promedia system is still considerably louder, had stronger punchier bass, cleaner highs and has a way of really filling the room that is more exhilarating and satisfying. If you like Pop, Rock, Hip Hop and Dance music and you like it LOUD, then the Klipsch system is still King of the Hill.
    So of course I had to go with Klipsch, how could I not after all the good history we’ve had together? Here’s to another 10 years of dependable service and beautiful music together.

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Honest Review from an Audiophile, December 26, 2011
    By 

    This review is from: Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System (Black) (Personal Computers)
    I know there are a lot of reviews on the Promedia 2.1’s which is great that Klipsch is finally getting a little recognition from the public, the down side is that most of the reviews are people coming from laptop speakers or the generic crap that came with their dell tower…

    Ive been in professional audio for more than fifteen years both home and mobile audio, so It takes a lot to impress me. The Pro Media 2.1’s did impress me, for the price. Can you compare these to top end Home Audio setup? Even though many do, the answer is no you cannot. As far as computer speakers go (non recording quality) these really are about as good as it gets at this price point. You could get a better system if your willing to drop $4-500+ but compared to other “commom consumer” products are concered Klipsh has always been a leader in SQ and very underrated at that. Keep in mind we are talking about consumer shelf products here, soon as you take a step up into the Audiophile world your taking a huge step up in price.

    So now the good bad and ugly…

    Sound Quality 8+

    Again for the price these are well balanced and Klipsh seems to be one of the very few putting out consumer items that has an understanding of how audio is actually put together. They seem to focus on whats sounds proper rather than what looks cool. Remember what happened to Harman Kardon?? Yep they are still producing the clear see through computer speakers. Bose is still Bose… They have a few solid products but pretty much have been on cruise control for the past decade based soley on a name and reputation built in the 80s-90s. Anyway back to the ProMedia’s, well balanced and highs are bright but not overwhelming especailly coming from Horn tweets. Satellite speakers have a proper mid range driver and seperate tweeter, instead of looking “modern” with some crazy design Klipsh built the design around what a proper speaker needs to sound good. To some that equals an ugly system, To me it just equals a proper system. Bass it tight and response is accurate.

    Bass 9

    Bass is very good on the pro media’s. Its the kind of bass thats perfect for obnoxious teenages who want to drive thier parents nuts. In other words there is a whole lot of it to go around, so much so it NEEDS to be dialed WAY down just to keep the sound quality high. Persoanlly I find its best run at about 15-20% without the need to Ever go over 50%. Basically what this means is that Klipsh went a little overboard with marketing to a generation of gamers and obnoxious teenages who think the 30 to 60 hz range needs to be set on permanent +24db. This is the only reason I didnt rate the Pro Media 2.1 a 10 for bass, the good news is that those of us who want a balanced flat response range can turn the knob way down and get it 🙂

    Output 10

    Were talking pure Db’s now! However keep in mind my ratings are based on expectations and competitors in for this price range ($100-200). Very big sound from such a small setup, these should satisfy most of us who dont enjoy bleeding ears from small room setups. Gets rather lound with minimal distortion if your Eq’ed properly, would be very easy to clip the subwoofer if you didnt know how to set your bass properly for high volumes. I read a few reviews that said the bass sucked because it distored, if your able to distort the sub on this system THAT easily you either dont have a clue about setup or need to forget buying computer speakers altogether and get yourself a small stage PA system… Simply Put the Pro Media 2.1 gets louder than any other computer system Ive demo’ed to date.

    Now for a few flaws… Yes every good thing has its flaws 🙂

    -Design might be an issue for some people, not the most atractive desktop setup, if thats what your after.

    -No power switch, System stays on all the time, so do not forget to turn your volume knob all the way down when your done. Otherwise you run the risk of blowing your spouse or animals through the wall if your out for a midnight internet surf and forgot you left the volume at 60%…

    -Not that the speakers are “unbalanced” but at low volume levels the current is not high enough to power the left satellite to the same volume level as the right side. The trick to help this is to lower your preamp output and increase the speaker amp output.

    Overall I would rate the system 9+ based on its value. Its not High end audio but in the world of computer geeks and casual listeners, is prob the best there is.

    Incredible Sound, Unbeatable Value, October 30, 2006
    By 
    Greg Robertson (Historic Quincy, MA) –
    (VINE VOICE)
      

    This review is from: Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Computer Speaker System (Black) (Personal Computers)
    Once THE speaker of choice for every hard rockin’ audiophile with a big enough garage, Klipsch fell off the landscape for a while after being sold to a corporate conglomerate that didn’t know the real value of what they’d bought. But after another buyout by a small group of genuine audiophiles, Klipsch is back on top, from a sound quality standpoint — and it shows in the ProMedia 2.1 THX.

    I have my trio connected to a new Mac Pro desktop unit and the sound is absolutely magical. Yes, there are more complex set-ups, with 5 or 7 speakers spread out across the room, but if you just want the magic without the madness, the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX is an incredible (and very affordable) solution that’s quick and easy to configure in about 5 minutes.

    Of course, there are other 3-speaker desktop systems by makers like Logitech, Cyber Acoustics, and Intec, but here’s the difference: Klipsch is a true speaker company that connects great speakers to your computer, while those others are computer peripherals companies that one day decided to make speakers. NOT the same thing. The only brands that are true competitors to Klipsch in this area are Bose, Harman Kardon, JBL, and Altec Lansing. I find that the Altec Lansing and JBL 3-speaker sets both sound nasal and “tinny” on the high end, while the Bose and Harman Kardon sets sound great, but are more expensive. So, after a good look (and listen) around, I went with Klipsch.

    In any case, this is an incredible sound set-up for your computer-based music player and should not be overlooked. Enjoy.
