    Best Setup for 2.1 Channel

    Hi Guys I am very much new to amplifiers and speakers of this level. I bought Denon X4500H and Klipsch RP 8000F + R 115 SW just this week. I am reading through a lot of stuff online about best settings to get the best out of the system. I agree that what I like is the best sound for me, but just to have some basics clear, I need some help from the community. I am using the whole system for music listening only. No movies or TV at all. I read about LFE, LPF etc and tried to play with setting the mains to Large/ Small LFE/LFE+Mains and LPF - 120Hz but I do not seem to feel any difference. I was expecting R 115SW to explode my room but its still very nominal. Could you please help me out with some basic settings. Thanks a lot. Vivek
  2. I own the ProMedia 2.1 Bluetooth Computer speakers. I have just recently noticed that while using my headphones in the supported jack on the control pod that sound was playing from both speakers, in addition to my headphones. I would prefer it only to play through the headphones. I honestly am not sure how long this has been happening but I've just noticed it. I frequently pull the headphones in and out of the jack so it gets plenty of use over the last 3 or so years. I've testing different headphones and it does the same thing so I'm sure it might be the switch. Is there anything I can do because the support page said the separate control pod isn't compatible with the BT version? Thanks for reading and any advice offering. Surely I'm not the first person experiencing this.
  3. Hi, so i bought a use promedia 2.1 last night and the two satalites where placed right on top of the sub when i tested it out there so i couldnt tell whether the right channel was quiet before i bought it or after however when i came home and plugged both my phone and laptop, the sound from the right speaker comes out much quieter than the left (left speaker has the control pod). I switched the wires in the back plugging the right speaker into the left channel and then the same thing happened, left speaker works just fine and right speaker (with the control pod) is now really quiet. i can still change the volume or bass on the control pod so i assumed the right channel in the sub itself is the problem. I was just wondering if this is a common problem and if there is a quick solution to this as i have no experience with fixing electronics.
  4. I have the Promedia 2.1 (the one with the power switch and transformer) system for my PC. I have had for some time now. My absolute favorite speaker. I had a couple of issues in the past that I repaired like Din plug and scratchy volume. Several months ago, I was listening to some music at a high volume. After 45 minutes, I noticed that only one speaker was working and could not hear the sub. I checked the speakers and they were fine. Opened up the sub and found a blown fuse on the HF amp. Now HF speakers work fine but the sub is very low in volume even though the adjustment on the pod is all the way up. I checked the sub and it is not blown. Measures good and tested with another audio source. Connected another sub in place and still had low volume. When I looked at the LF amp, I could see that the board was very discolored due to heat. I removed the board and found R16 and R17 to be loose. I then cleaned up the solder pads and reinstalled the resistors. I checked the fets and they seemed to be ok. I checked all the other parts for bad joints. Didn't notice any components to be damaged. I was wondering if there was a service manual for the original Promedia 2.1 (the one with the power switch and transformer)? Does anyone know why the audio would be very low? Thanks boB
  5. Hey guys so recently I got my friend to bring the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers from Canada to here in Pakistan. I was so excited to get them running as soon as they got here. When I brought them home I connected them the usual way. And when I turned on the switch......boom. The electricity flickered and the speakers didn't turn on. I turned around the subwoofer unit observing the rear side of it and then did I realize that it was rated 120V! Whereas here we use 220V. How stupid could I get?! Okay so this is the first time I have got something from US/Canada so I had no idea about the different voltage system. I learned the hard way. Since there is no official presence of Klipsch in Pakistan, and I didn't opt for warranty which would've costed me extra CAD 35 from Amazon.ca, I took the speakers to the repair guy in my area who has fixed my old Logitech speakers and Phillips TV before as well. He tried to fix the speakers but unfortunately couldn't. This is the amp unit: He said the fuse was intact but these 2 components were fried so he replaced them: He did some more soldering and checking with multimeter and all in front of me but the speakers weren't powering on. On some points he was getting readings on his multimeter but not on others (as far as I remember). The repair guy said that this component is damaged (IC?) (highlighted): The repair guy was like I will have to get the replacement part (the whole board as shown in the first picture) from abroad because its not available here in the market. I searched Ebay and did find a few options, but they are either the subwoofer itself or the whole back plate unit. Plus they are really expensive (around $70-$80). Might as well get new speakers from best buy ($125). But even then I don't have anyone coming in from the US. So I wanted to ask if there is any other way I could get these fixed. Maybe the repair guy missed something, or was wrong about something. Need suggestions. Should I try replacing the fuse? I've heard so many good things about these speakers and couldn't even get the chance to hear a single sound from them And they cost me CAD 260! They're just lying here useless in my room.
  6. Hey guys, I've had my 2.1s for over 10 years now with minor issue, just some volume knob scratchiness. Over the past couple of years I began to notice a more serious issue. The right channel would consistently lose signal. Usually with a little physical nudging of the sub the signal would come back. Over time it became more and more common, and now the left channel sees a similar issue. I opened up the sub to see how the internals look and attached are some pictures. I know some of this is glue, but something doesn't seem right. Is there anything here that catches anyone's eye that has maybe popped or exploded?
  7. HI, I'm considering changing my speaker setup. As I need rather narrow speakers, I was considering a 2.1 setup to get decent bass. The problem is, I don't have too much place for a subwoofer. It looks like this: Free space is 26cm x 26cm (10in x 10in), which would accomodate the Promedia sub but as you can see: a/ on the left it would be actually almost touching the printer b/ on the right it would be 2-3 inches from the couch c/ at the back there would be approx. 10 inches space d/ front will be basically almost touching my legs e/ it would not be standing on the floor, but on a fairly thin piece of metal In this case - is it even plausible to think about the 2.1 setup, or will I be better off with 2.0 speakers?
  8. These two (2) speaker leads are 19 feet 6 inches long having molded mono angled 90 degree plugs on one end with standard male mini jack plugins (1/8"/3.5mm) and bare tinned wire on the other end. Fits older Klipsch Promedia 2.1 or 4.1 satellite speakers that takes angled mono plug on one end for inserting into the satellite speaker jack and bared tinned lead on the other end for connecting to the sub panel clips. Meant for the rear speakers of a Promedia 4.1 system to extend the reach and separate the rears further away but works fine if you need more reach than the stock 9' 6" Promedia 2.1 or 4.1 front speaker leads. These mono plugs and wires could work in other situations as needed. Technically considered ribbon 'rip' wire AWG 20 gauge, non-shielded, markings for left, right, positive and negative. Message me here if interested. Only a few available. $15 Free shipping. Invoiced via PayPal.
  9. I tested the Promedia 2.1 at BB. The sub had an on/off switch and a fuse and the speakers were hard wired. What version is this? I thought the newer ones did not have the switch. There was no serial on the sub and the box sticker read Klipsch 2014. Thanks ahead of time.
