Klipsch ProMedia 2.1
Released August, 2009
The Pros:Above average sound for the speaker size - distinctive high and mid tones. Bass is clear and distinctive without sounding muddy. Spring-loaded terminals connect to bare cable wiring in one central location on the subwoofer.
The Cons:Reliability issues if used at high volume levels. Produces distortion at higher volumes. Underpowered bass response compared to competing systems.
