[Solved] Klipsh ProMedia 2.1 Alternative

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if there is anything that's a good alternative or slightly more expensive than these speakers. I would like to go ~$50 more expensive is there anything with good bass that's worth the $50 step up?

Swan M10 whites are popular. Never heard of it so I can't say much about it. I have been considering getting it to replace my broken Logitech X-530's. But Klipsch 2.1 is really good.

I had the Klipsch 5.1 for the better part of 7 years running them hard daily, but the 2.1's are not near the quality of the 5.1's were.
In general they will do great for a basic 2 speaker system.

You can opt to get the Logitech x-530's or the current model 5.1's and they should suffice well. You can hook up the rear channels or you can just leave them at 2.1..

I find the Klipsch 5.1 are pricey but they are more a loudspeaker tone vs the Logitechs that are more like a home stereo speaker that have a glassy tone.

BoreBuy usually has them hooked up so try a set out or get a logitech set at waldomart if your carry the 5.1's

Look up the specs of the two models and the type circuitry they use and power etc..

BTW I now have the X-530's as well and they are far from the Klipsch 5.1 or the higher end Logitech 5.1s but money wise you have to still drop the better part of 1-2 hundred..

Chow!

I'm using 2 sets of Altec Lansing MX6021. The highs are much better than the Klipsch's which my friend uses on his laptop.
Shhhhh!

What? All Logitech sound systems are overpriced and have quite terrible sound quality, even the Z-5500. For a 2.1 system, I'd say the Klipsch is probably the only one in its price range. I recommend going for a 2.0 system, which will have less bass, but punchier mids and clearer highs. Then adding a sub later on if you are not satisfied with the amount of bass.

That's pretty much exactly what I did and I couldn't be happier :]

Well I picked up the Klipsch, I'm a dubstep fan so the sub is a must.
