Is the new 2.1 Promedia better than the old?

Recommended Posts

I have about a 11-12 year Promedia system. I have really loved this system for my computer setup. However, over the years, the subwoofer will randomly stop working. I think it is a pretty common problem. Each time, I have bought a new control pod and that seems to fix the problem for a few years. I usually buy the control pod directly from Klipsch. It seems like there used to be a "Parts" page that I could go to and just buy the pod. However, I don't see that anymore.

 

So my main question is, is the new promedia system improved so that the control pod doesn't fail? Mainly I think it is the connection that plugs in to the sub that fails. On the new system, it looks different, so wondering if that was to fix the issue.

 

Sorry if this has been covered in depth. Searching isn't yielding good results for me.

I was under the impression that they fixed the DIN plug problem.

 

Other than that, I don't know.

Thanks Coytee. That's what it appeared from the website, but I wasn't sure. I hate to spend a $150 just for the upgraded DIN that hopefully won't break. I upgraded my satellite speakers to Quintet IIIs, so all I need is the sub. 

 

I also saw some conflicting information in the "Spec Sheet". I swear it says it has Bluetooth. But there is no mention of that anywhere on their product page which leads me to believe this might be from the old BT system they used to sell?

I too have noticed a few YouTube videos mentioning that the ProMedia 2.1's have BlueTooth. Haven't seen them for sale with BlueTooth anywhere, new or used, so perhaps it's an option for outside the USA only or perhaps they're knock-off/counterfeits? Not that anyone should be using BlueTooth with audio, but that's another story.
