Replacing the sub in my 2.1 system?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Got a Klipsch Promedia 2.1 at least 4 years ago and it's time to upgrade.

One of the speakers failed about 18 months back. Replaced them with a slightly better set of bookshelf speakers. Everything else is still the original 2.1 system.

Wanna upgrade my sub next but I'm not sure what I need to look for. I'm not edumacated in audio stuff so I may just be over thinking things ... but do I need a certain kind of sub or can I just get whatever? From what I understand I need a standalone sub since I don't have a receiver? Or can I just a "normal" home sub and just use 3.5 to RCA and run it like I got now?

I'm running a Polk Audio PSW 110. It's been amazing at everything I throw at it.

doh.gif Crap didn't notice you was using reusing the 2.1 system. May i say have you thought about looking into a new 2.1 system? I'm running a Dayton T100A amp, with Daytons B652's bookshelf's, and that PSW110 Sub I linked. That setup will blow your bridges away.

From what remember about that setup, the speakers are driven from the sub? If I remember correctly, you ran the line out of your sound card to the sub and the speakers connected to the sub? Is that how yours is connected? If so, you will need something similar, or just swap out for a new 2.1 system.
