Klipsch V.2 -400 Promedia Speaker System Review
November 2000
Introduction

When I bought my 486 back in the day, it came with my first set of multimedia speakers. These speakers were tiny, and didn't really output much sound but I loved them anyway. I thought to myself, "Wow I can listen to CDs and sounds with my computer now!" Well it's been 6 years since then and multimedia technology has evolved so much. The speakers that I once thought were great aren't even comparable to the lowest of the low by today's standards. My next set of speakers consisted of a Boston Acoustics BA-635, which came with my system from Gateway. That was 2 years ago. Although those BA-635s were small, they could put out some decent sound. The speaker market back then wasn't really too great. You didn't really have much high quality speakers like you do these days. It took about another year or so for the market to really pick up. The evolution of sound cards helped to move that along.

Now that you had sound cards supporting up to 4 speakers and digital output, new systems started emerging that would change the way we listen to sound on a computer. DVD movies became more and more widespread. Enter the Klipsch ProMedias v.2-400. These were the first THX certified multimedia speakers on the market. Most of you have probably heard of these speakers from someone or read about them somewhere. Although Klipsch has been a long time provider or high quality home audio, this was their first try at a pc multimedia system.

The contenders back then didn't even come close to the quality of this bad boy, and the reviews reflected this. The ProMedias were instantly crowned the best multimedia speakers. That was a year ago. The speaker market has changed a lot since then. New systems from Altec Lansing, Cambridge, Boston Acoustics, VideoLogic, Midiland, and others have come into the market and challenged the supremacy of the ProMedias. Despite all this new competition, and more to come, the ProMedias are still one of the best PC multimedia speaker systems on the market. This review will take a look at the good and the bad sides of the ProMedias.
