Klipsch announces ProMedia 2.1 BT speaker set

The ProMedia 2.1 BT speaker package is an update of the original 2.1 compact design and adds Bluetooth connectivity for a more flexible audio solution.

Famed US speaker company Klipsch has unveiled the ProMedia 2.1 BT, a set of powered speakers consisting 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.

Among its range of powered speakers, including the R41 PM and The Three II models, Klipsch has found space for the ProMedia 2.1 BT desktop friendly sub/sat speaker set, which may see them erroneously mislabelled as purely computer speakers. However, as the company is keen to point out, the ProMedia’s flexibility puts them more at the level of entry level soundbars with the speakers able to use up to 200 watts of dynamic power for uses ranging from music streaming to boxset binging to frantic Fortnite fighting.

Klipsch has used its renowned expertise in horn-loaded speaker technology to house an 8cm Klipsch MicroTractrix horn mid-bass driver directly below the 19mm PEI (polyethermide) tweeter in each of the satellite speakers. This creates an efficient speaker design resulting in an impressive amount of sweet treble and natural midrange from a small footprint. 

When added to the 17cm side-firing, ported subwoofer, the ProMedia 2.1 BTs produce a sound 'significantly greater than the sum of its compact parts'. 

To avoid non essential clutter around a desk or workstation, and since bass is non directional, the subwoofer can be placed away from the satellite speakers. A wider stereo image can be created too since the compact speakers can be placed significantly further apart than the constraints of a soundbar housing would otherwise allow.

With so many working from home, the ProMedia 2.1 BT enables a useful mix of audio activities for work and relaxation while taking up very little space.   

The Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 BT is available in the UK now, priced £279.99 SRP. Henley Audio exclusively distributes the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 BT in the UK and the system is currently offered for purchase online, complete with a choice of home delivery or click & collect.
