Star Wars ProMedia 2.1 (# 567)




    • What is the correct fuse used in the ProMedia 2.1 THX?

      2 amps, 250 volt  “slow blow"
      Radio shack part number - (270-1064)

    • How do I hook up this device to my ProMedia 2.1/4.1?

      For the 4.1, you'll simply disable the center channel. For the 2.1, disable the center and surrounds. You will not hook anything up to the center/sub or surround outputs.

    • My volume skips as I turn the knob.

      The encoder on the volume control towers can be "touchy," especially if they are turned very quickly or very slowly. A steady rotation of the knob yields the best results. If you feel yours is behaving erratically because of internal damage to the tower (knob may feel excessively tight or loose in places), then please contact our returns department at 800-554-7724 for an exchange.

    • The back of the subwoofer is warm. Is this normal?

      A subwoofer will run warm when in use, by design. However, it should not be uncomfortable to leave your hand on the back panel for 5 seconds.

    • All I hear is static and very low volume.

      Make sure your digital output in your soundcard software is turned off.

    • How long are the speaker wires that come with the ProMedia 2.1?

      Approx 9 ½ feet—22 gauge

    • I hear a pop noise when powering on/off the speakers. Is this normal?

      The sound is normal for this system. It will not hurt the speakers.

    • Are the satellites magnetically shielded?

      Yes, the satellites are shielded, but the subwoofer is not.

    • Can I upgrade my 2.1/4.1 to a 5.1 system?

      No, the amplifier for the 5.1 was completely redesigned to accommodate the center channel. It is not possible to upgrade.

    • What is the purpose of the auxiliary input?

      You can use the auxiliary input to hook up your ProMedia speakers to any device with a mini-plug connection, such as an MP3 or portable disc player.

    • The speakers are hissing.

      If the speakers do not hiss when the computer is turned off, then the hissing is coming from your soundcard. Try muting devices you are not using in the volume control panel, such as Line In, CD Audio, and Mic Input. Also try moving your soundcard to another slot of your motherboard, away from other devices. If the speakers do hiss when the computer is off, please contact technical support at for further help.

    • Are these analog or digital speakers?

      The ProMedia v2-400, 2.1, 4.1 and 5.1s have analog connections. Since the Klipsch engineering team focused purely upon audio performance to hit reasonable price targets, features and built-in digital decoding were not priorities. It is important to realize that all speaker systems are analog devices—"digital" speakers simply have a decoder built in. Most newer soundcards and DVD software programs have digital decoding capabilities built in, thus negating the need for an external decoder.

    • I'm only getting sound out of one speaker.

      First, determine if the problem is with the individual speaker by swapping the wire at the back of the satellites. Also, check the speaker wire itself. Swap the wire for the speaker that is working for the one that is dead. If it's the speaker or wire that doesn't work, contact customer service at 800-554-7724. 

      If it's a channel is out, make sure the plug is firmly seated into the soundcard. Also, you can test the speakers with another device (you can plug the audio cable into any headphone output jack of devices such as a portable CD player, walkman, or mp3 player) to determine if the problem is with the subwoofer or the soundcard. If a channel is still out when using the other device as a source, please contact technical support at If the speakers work with the other device, you may need to reinstall your soundcard drivers—contact your soundcard manufacturer for further assistance.

    • How do I hook the speakers up to my receiver/TV/gaming console/DVD player?

      The 2.1s can be hooked up directly to a headphone output jack. The 4.1s and 5.1s can be hooked up to a headphone jack with a stereo mini-plug y adapter. This set up will give you stereo sound from 4 speakers (not true surround)—the 5.1 center channel will not be utilized.

    • When I turn the wire jacks in the back of the satellites (v2-400, 2.1 or 4.1), I hear a static noise.

      Clean the metal plugs at the end of the wires with rubbing alcohol to improve the connection.

    • What soundcard do you recommend for my computer speaker system?

      Klipsch does not have an official recommendation for soundcards. If you have the 5.1 ProMedia system, you'll need a 5.1 soundcard to take full advantage of the surround sound effects. The 4.1 will need at least a 4 channel card; 2.1 a two channel card. All the ProMedia products have mini plug connections.
