- Very nice well rounded speakers. Woofer has a lot of uumph. Over a decade ago Klipsch was not available in Canada and I remember having to buy a pair used from the USA for $280+. Amazing how a decade later Klipsch is still selling these. Picked up a couple, makes for great christmas gifts!
- No power button.
Klipsch fan is very impressed!

- Great Deep bass
Nice High tones
Crystal Clear Clarity
LOUD! VERY LOUD!
Sounds Fantastic on all levels
- No Off switch like others mentioned, but it probably wont be needing to be turned off often.
- I purchased this system with the Sound Blaster Recon3D together you can truly judge the system to its full potential, and it has great potential! One of the best things about this System is you get a non-airy sounding bass, as well as hear every note, that you might not have heard on another system. I have tested it on multiple music genres, games and movies. In which it has a great feel for each of these that you wont be disappointed in for sure! For 320$ you can have my exact sound set up!

- For the price, these speakers beat some of the more expensive sets of 2.1 speakers on the computer market. I've had the Logitech Z-2300s and the Klipsch is better in both the highs and lows. The bass sounds tighter and the highs are cleaner on the Klipsch vs the Logitechs. I decided to buy these to replace my Rocksolid (A division of Bowers and Wilkins) Sound Monitors and amp setup I had before. I thought I would be missing out, but these speakers fail to disappoint.
Still Going Strong!

- This product simply sounds amazing! Crystal clear highs n' deep lows on any volume setting. I too have purchased the 4.1 sys. and it's still going strong even after 9 yrs. of audio grub! Any setting provides the same clarity of sound but if the user maxes the volume, surround & bass dials, there will be low-end distortion...that applies to any speaker system obviously. Satellite's structure and sound are all the same w/ 2.1, 4.1 and 5.1 systems although Klipsch had upgraded the cabinets 4 yrs. after the 4.1 system's debut. There's also plenty of wire length to play with depending on the user's setup. As the other reviewer has stated, upgrading to 18-guage wire is possible thru Klipsch...this obviously makes a great difference in sound compared to the provided wires. Removable speaker covers, mountable on wall or simple stands are bonuses too.
- After approx 6 yrs. of use, when system is turned on, make sure the volume dial is completely off before adjusting the surround. Reason being, a person or group of people close by, may temporarily lose their hearing due to sudden high frequencies at max volume even if the vol. is slightly turned on. Do not adjust the surround. Also, as others have mentioned, these/any 2.1 or above systems must be plugged into a surge protector of sorts. Doing this will definitely prolong their lives.
- The 4.1 system was my first surround system I purchased. Three yrs. ago i bought the Logitech z5500 5.1 system and to compare clarity of the satellites, the Klipsch out-lasted the Logitech ten-fold and both are THX certified! The difference is that Klipsch's sat. have a tweeter + mid on each of their sats. and Logitech's are their 'combo' 2-in-1 which imho makes the high/mid freq. sounds, suffer...improper balance. However, the Logitech's sub is much deeper due to it's lower frequency range. Mind you, as an audiophile, I prefer clear clarity & low freq. balance compared to the over-powering lows w/ the hint of highs but that's just me. Any Klipsch sys. whether it's their towers, bookshelfs, or comp. speakers will definitetly guarantee rich sound and longevity, now and for the future!

- I bought the 4.1 ProMedia series almost seven years ago - the clarity and sound are reaaally good for the price - I paid $300 for my set which sold for $700 when they were introduced a year earlier...I upgraded the gauge and length of the wire so the satellites could be attached to a bimini top on a houseboat while keeping the sub under the control console...party time!!!!!
Another good feature is that the speakers bolt onto their little stands so you can adapt them to custom speaker stands o
- For some reason, the rears kept losing their surround capability, but I think it was just my PC at the time...
- Overall really good for the buck - I've heard new sounds on these that I couldn't with other speakers for the same price...

- Thunderous bass, clarity
- I would say that these speakers are still the best 2.1 for under $500

- These speakers sound fanstastic! You could pay more money and find something better but for the cheap price, these are the best combination of value & quality, hands down.
- No power off so you can shut them down completely. Need a power bar or cord with switch.

- Great Bass, really good mid and horn highs.
- Din cable, you might have to reset it every now and then.
- These are great speakers. I have had mine for over 5 years now.
I use a power bar so I can shut them down after use, no burn out problems.
Klipsch makes great speakers, but electronics?

- Amazing Sound
Literally the best 2.1 speakers you can buy for a computer or iPod.
Klipsch was the first to market for THX certified speakers for the computer.
- If you leave the speakers on all the time, the sub heats up and burns out over time (read: after your limited warranty).
- If you are going to purchase these speakers buy an extended warranty, but even then, they may burn out after that.
There are guides online for fixing this and Klipsch has provided absolutely zero support for helping users fix their own speakers. EVERYONE has had this problem who has owned the 2.1, 4.1 or 5.1 sets.
What helps is air circulation. So if the bass is thumping, the air circulates and cools the components. This is why leaving it on without anything playing is bad.
