The only computer speakers you'll ever need. Really.

A computer speaker package that comes in a 4.1 setup (two front channel speakers, two rear channel speakers, and one subwoofer, the sound produced by these speakers is nothing short of exceptional. The speakers are THX Certified, which is surprising, given their nature as computer speakers. The 400 comes from the total output of the system. Each satellite speaker has an output of 60 watts RMS, and the subwoofer has an output of 160 watts.

The audio quality from this system, as stated previously, is phenomenal. However, the system is not without it's caveats. Klipsch, despite being manufacturers of high quality audio systems, have had little experience in the computer speaker market. As such, there are several features that are sorely missing, including a headphone jack, a microphone jack, and inexplicably, a power on/off switch. These speakers stay on unless unplugged (however, according to documentation, have a standby mode they go into when inactive). Another common problem is the amount of noise produced by the speakers. Many users (including myself), have noted that when the speakers are not in use, they still put out quite a bit of static. This is noticeable even from about a 4-5 foot distance from the speakers, at minimum volume.

Despite the few flaws, the quality of these speakers is well worth the price. With the more complex audio systems being supported by today's sound cards, a 5.1 system (4 satellite speakers and one center channel speaker) would be preferable, but the 4.1 system by Klipsch is by far one of the best speaker systems.

They're not cheap. Investing in one of these systems will set one back $250, which is quite a bit of money considering that many computer speakers can be had for $10-$20, and high quality systems are typically $150 or less.

IMHO, the money is well worth it.

Klipsch Speakers are not a well known speaker brand unless you are really into the surround sound. It is one of highest top of the line brands known for exceptional sound. Klipsch speakers were first introduced in 1946. They use a horn design on the tweeters. The horn design was chosen for the fact that it can produce a louder and more powerful sound with less distortion and with the same power as other speakers. Every speaker Klipsch makes has a built in tweeter in a horn shape that well amplifys the sound. The pro-media speakers can produce 110 decibels of sound.

The pro-media speakers are reviewed as the best speakers from almost everyone who has reviewed them. PC Gamer - "Best speakers on gods green earth". If you feel this review maybe fixed just head to yahoo type in klipsch pro-media and find out what all say about them. If you are looking into some new speakers check these out. They run at $250 but it is worth it. 400 watts of power with 4.1 surround sound. The subwoofer alone is Awesome. As just a final 2 word on the speakers "Get them".
