Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1


With an excellent subwoofer and two-way sats, this multimedia speaker system does justice to PC games and DVD sound.

Category-leading subwoofer; 1/8-inch analog line-in jack; headphone output; standard speaker-wire connectors; improved styling.

Expensive; no digital-audio inputs; lacks a wireless remote control.

Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1


This 5.1-channel speaker system has a powerful subwoofer.

Top-notch sound

More expensive than some competitors

The Ultra 5.1 lacks the flashy design of gaming speakers, but it has good, classic looks and top-notch sound.

"AMAZING sound... for 1.5 hours"


Nothing short of an amazing sound, for as long as it works. I read the opinions of others before buying, taking note of some who had their amp die within months of purchase. Being a current owner of a ProMedia 5.1 (not Ultra), and having had nothing...

Incredibly high quality sound, reasonable price given sound quality

Amp died after 1.5 hours of use.

"Bad product and Klipsch admits this."


Do yourself a huge favor and go read the forums on They will help you understand that the amp will die and Klipsch admits to this being a "wide spread issue". However, they WILL charge you, still, to repair it. In addition, Klipsch...

Great sound, WHEN working.

Amp will die, it's just a matter of time.

"short-lived blissful audio experience"


I can only repeat what other reviewers have said before me:

Tight bass, non-shrill/piercing treble, powerful sound

Short-lived, cheap-looking control module, no digital decoder

"Beautiful sound that never lasts"


I take very good care of my gear and there is a UPS and extremely good current to all items. I don't play things loud. And I have owned now 5 sets of these speakers and several other Klipsch speakers. The sad part is all of these sets save one have...

Sound is open and wonderfully full

Amplifier stinks - and just goes boom every 6 mo
