I was wondering if there was something better out there for around the same price (up to about $200ish or so). I just realized that it's a Best Buy only brand and with my experience, that's normally not a good thing.
klipsch is not a best buy brand. they are a well known and respected speaker company.
as for the promedia 2.1? i've had it. its not a bad system however the subwoofer overpowers the satelites.
are there other good options sub 200? perhaps getting a pair of active bookshelf speakers instead. av30/av40, cr3/cr4 and similar. you could also go unpowered speakers with an amplifier. bs22,mb42, getting a used pair of klipsch bookshelves, etc.
originally i went that route then since i was impressed with klipsch but did not like the pairing i looked into the other offerings. i ended up buying some home theater speakers from them and its been good times since.
Thanks guys. Yeah, I guess the ones I got were Best Buy only. They work pretty well, but as Ssddx mentioned, the woofer does seem to overpower the speakers. It's manageable when I turn down the woofer, though.
