Klipsch 2.1 ProMedia upgrade

I've been running an older Klipsch 2.1 ProMedia setup with my home computer. The Klipsch is considered pretty good as far as desktop 2.1 systems go, but I figured that I could do better.

So I picked up a pair of Minimus 7 speakers and swapped them in for the Klipsch satellites. It doesn't appear that Klipsch tweaked the satellite outputs for their speakers as the setup sounds pretty good, a lot better than with the original sats. The M7s have some pretty good detail...

Now, on to upgrading the M7s.

I have the same setup from Klipsch. I never considered swapping out the two satelites. If I swap in two 8 Ohm speakers, how much power output can the amp put out?

Are you talking about POWERED speakers or passive speakers?

For $40 per pair, the Dayton B652 speakers are incredibly good. I have a pair in my den with a Cambridge amplifier, and they are much better than the expensive Boston speakers they replaced.

If you want POWERED speakers, the Audioengine 2 speakers are hard to beat for a computer setup.

Passive.

The Klipsch subwoofer is an active subwoofer, and also powers the two satellite speakers. The Minimus 7s replaced the Klipsch passive sats.

Next step - the Focal Sib, a different league of speakers
