The more things change, the more they stay the same. Klipsch’s ProMedia 2.1 speaker system backs up its 2014 and 2012 victories with another convincing win in this week’s desktop computer speaker Co-Op.

I’ve had these since 2010 and have been really happy with them...although they have too much bass. The sub will shake your house and you’ll hear them upstairs, downstairs, and outside. That’s nice, but it also kinda sucks, since you can’t really use much of the full potential of these speakers without disturbing your housemates and/or neighbors. But they still sound pretty good when at a low volume even though they’re most fun when you turn them up loud and listen to them. - nighttimeistherighttime

Love mine.

My only qualms are the brighter than the sun LED (which I covered with electrical tape) and the fact that the power button is on the sub, which is a slight inconvenience. Oh, and yeah, they are a little too bassy for a second floor apartment, but that’s more my neighbor’s problem than mine ;) - Garrett Davis

The design isn’t for everyone, but Harmon Kardon’s Soundstick III finished a strong second, with over 20% of the vote.
