Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 BT powered speaker system for work, rest and games!

ProMedia 2.1 BT, the powered speaker system equipped for duties way beyond just the desktop. This redesigned version of the US maker’s original 2.1 compact package adds wireless Bluetooth connectivity, further boosting its flexibility. The ProMedia 2.1 BT consists of a pair of powered stereo speakers and an acoustically matched powered subwoofer, finished in black, and ready for a multitude of home and office uses.

Klipsch is rightly recognised for its skill with horn-loaded speaker technology and each ProMedia 2.1 BT satellite houses an 8cm Klipsch MicroTractrix horn mid-bass driver directly below the 19mm PEI (polyethermide) tweeter. The result is a highly efficient speaker design, complete with sweet treble and natural midrange, that produces a remarkable amount of sound from its neat footprint. The two satellite speakers deftly integrate with the Klipsch 17cm side-firing, ported subwoofer, creating a sound system that is significantly greater than the sum of its compact parts.
