  1. Hey, I just purchased the Promedia 2.1 THX and set it up per the instructions. The sub worked VERY well but neither satellite worked at all. I could control the volume via the right speaker and light was on, but no sound. I had an old pioneer receiver and decided to test out the satellite speakers. They worked great when connected to the receiver. I am not sure what the problem is exactly? It could be the preamp, speaker wires or the 3.5mm jack. I can't really narrow it down since they all work independently, just not as a single unit. Any help would be appreciated. Klipsch has not responded to my service request, which is not surprising given the current climate. Thanks!
  2. ProMedia 2.1, #06461333, CSA Project #205697 The left channel does not reproduce any audio from the left speaker. The subwoofer and right channel seem to work fine. The headphones output from the right speaker control module works fine. I have done some disassembly of the subwoofer cabinet and left speaker and some testing and confirmed that: . the fuse in the left channel high frequency board is blown. . there is a spot on the lower portion of the left high frequency board that looks like it has been overheated and probably fried. . the left satellite speaker crossover tests fine, but the mid/woofer in the left speaker is dead. . the 4 speaker spring loaded connection strip is dried out and falling apart So I need to figure out what to do with this - trash it or maybe I can fix it? I can't imagine it is worth paying a pro to repair it & I am reasonably handy at repairing stereo components. Questions: 1. What are the specs for the mid/woofer driver so I can see if there is a proper match out there - ohms load? low/high frequency capability? 2. Is it possible to replace the left high frequency channel board and might that solve that problem? Or maybe rebuild that board if the board itself is ok? 3.Should I just trash the amplifier guts and replace it with a 2.1 plate or external 2.1 amplifier of similar specs and get some usage out of this speaker system? My internet reading tells me this is a very common problem with the ProMedia 2.1 speaker systems, so I'm hoping solutions have been developed. Any knowledge, experience or solutions others have to offer are greatly appreciated.
  3. Hello all, I have the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX system like this (amber Klipsch THX badges and power pad incorporated into one of the smaller satellite speakers). These speakers have produced fantastic quality sound, I have loved this system on my PC. It has apparently just lost power (while in use), the green light on the speaker power pad is no longer illuminated. The sound literally just cut out while they were in use, no electrical smells or any weird sounds, it was as if they were simply unplugged. I have always had them on 24/7/365, hooked into my PC. I've owned them for maybe 1.5 years, so not that old. I've done the typically trouble shooting - unplugged/plugged back in, restarted my PC, checked the Windows 10 "manage audio devices/sound" looked to see if the speakers bar was being colorized up/down as audio is played. All to no avail. There's no static/buzzing sound when I plug them into my PC, or that static/buzzing sound when you touch your finger tip on the plug end that goes into your PC. They appear to be completely dead. I plugged in an older set of speakers into my PC and those work fine, so obviously seems to be something with the Klipsch speakers. Does anyone have any tips as to how to trouble shoot this on the Klipsch speakers? It seems like perhaps a fuse has blown? I've opened up the subwoofer and taken some photos of the electronics (imgur.com gallery) It all looks very clean inside, I don't see any signs of any connection being burned or damaged and there was no electrical burning smell when it went out. Can anyone identify where the fuse is on this? I'd like to see about replacing that as the speaker system seems to be power dead. I'm obviously no electronics expert and only know enough to get myself electrocuted. I don't have any electronics troubleshooting equipment, either.
  4. Answered my own question, not sure how to remove. It was a little silly.
  5. I have Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers that I've bought from 2 years ago and I've been using them frequently ever since. Recently, the right channel speaker sometimes works, and sometimes it doesn't. I noticed yesterday that when I plugged the power cable of the subwoofer (to which the speakers are connected to), the right channel speaker was working for a while like it should, then it stopped. Also, I've also noticed both speakers have a low buzzing sound, and the buzzing sound doesn't go away regardless of changing the volume. But I really just want my right speaker to work again. And by the way, I am not a sound techie so I won't understand a lot of tech jargon. I know that there are so many places to start, but if anyone can help me out with what I should do from the information I just gave, that would be awesome! Thanks!
  6. Had my Promedia 2.1 for about 2 years or so and I've loved it. Unfortunately, after sitting for 6 months while I was deployed it has started giving off a really bad annoying whine. I've troubleshot it down to the sub giving off the sound. I know this for sure, because once the whine started I unplugged everything from the sub and it was still there until a unplugged the power to the sub. The only "fix" I've found is if I run some bass heavy music through it for a couple minutes the whine will then go away for about 10 minutes and then returns. I thought it might have been some issues with it sitting next to my computer tower, some kind of interference, but I isolated the sub and moved it away from everything else and the problem still exists. Any ideas whats wrong and If I can fix it? -Thank You.
  7. My ProMedia 2.1 system sometimes works fine. Other times when I power it up, it doesn't fully get there. In this case, the power indicator light doesn't come on and there is light crackling/noise that is not affected by the volume knob. Occasionally, the system overcomes its power up problem and finally kicks in, usually with a good low end pop. Again, this is not all the time, just occasionally. When it works, it works great. When it doesn't, it's pretty stubborn and won't power up until its ready. Thoughts?
  8. Hi All. . . This is my first post. I own ProMedia 2.1 speakers and subwoofer and have them connected to my laptop. Great sound! Recently moved to a new location. When I reconnected ProMedia 2.1, the L channel out from the subwoofer (which of course connects to the L speaker) does not work. I've tried reversing the L and R connections and have isolated the issue to the L channel out from the subwoofer. Anyone have an idea on how to resolve the issue. I contacted Klipsch and they suggested a new sound card to be installed in the subwoofer. Problem is, it's $85. . .kind of a lot of money for me. If the sound card is the issue, 1) does anyone know where I can get a compatible or less expensive sound card that can restore sound to both of these excellent speakers (and the subwoofer), and 2) anyone know if replacing the sound card is difficult. . .or where I could get instructions on this? Thank you for answering either or both of these questions. Much appreciated. Markinrockford
