I have the 2.1 ProMedia from Klipsch. The woofer works great for computer use. Well... I like a little more bass than it can provide. I cant figure out how to add an additional woofer. I DO NOT want to toss out the woofer I have now, I just want to add another woofer that can hit some of the lower frequencies, and maybe shake the house a little more lol. I have had 4-5 people tell me that I can do this. Not one will tell me how... Only one person was saying not to do it because it would be a pain in the butt. I was also asking about car woofers.


I was hoping to incorporate a woofer for a car into my system. They always sound better and they just seem to be higher in quality... I have had people tell me that it will be to difficult and other that say it wont be a problem.


Specs on my 2.1


AMPLIFIER POWER: Peak Power: 200 Watts total system

Satellites: 35 watts/channel @ 5% THD, 1KHz, two channels driven

Subwoofer: 130 watts peak (50 watts @ 5% THD, 50 Hz continuous)

CROSSOVER FREQUENCY: HF: 5kHz

DIMENSIONS: Satellite: 8.5" (21.59cm) x 4.2" (10.67cm) x 5.67" (14.4cm)

Subwoofer: 9.5" (24.13cm) x 9.8" (24.9cm) x 10.2" (25.9cm)

Subwoofer: MDF

ENCLOSURE TYPE: Satellites: sealed

Subwoofer: bass reflex

FREQUENCY RESPONSE: 31Hz - 20kHz

HIGH FREQUENCY HORN: 90(o) x 40(o) MicroTractrix(r) Horn

INPUTS: MP3 two-channel soundcard miniplug

MAXIMUM ACOUSTIC OUTPUT: 106dB SPL

OUTPUTS: Headphone

SUBWOOFER: One side-firing 6.5" (16.51cm) long-throw fiber composite cone

TWEETER: 0.75" Poly compression driver

VOLTAGE: 110/120 VAC

WEIGHT: Satellite: 2.1 lbs. (0.95kg)

Subwoofer: 11 lbs. (5kg)

WOOFER: 3" long-throw fiber-composite cone


I have minimal knowledge on this stuff. Please dumb it down.


Oh. Almost forgot... I had an idea about buying 3 drivers from Klipsch (same ones they used in my woofer) and removing the one I have now and making 1 box with the 4 woofers lol. They do sell the drivers. But getting someone to get you the T/S parameters on the drivers is next to impossible. They act like they will get them for you but the answer always is "Our engineers haven't got back to me yet"


Thanks for the help,

J.

Headphone splitter from the jack on the computer, promedia into one port of the splitter, 3.5mm headphone to rca adapter on the other port of the splitter into a powered sub.

Easy as pie:

http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 (or longer)
http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-633 (or to choice, any powered sub should do)


The volume control on the speakers will not control the sub volume, I suggest you set the turn the computer volume all the way up and set the speaker volume as high as you would ever play it (don't max it out) then set sub volume according to the speaker volume as to not overpower it and leave the controls alone, control volume from the source (computer/ipod/cell etc.) If you don't do it this way, turning the speakers down or off would leave the sub thumping away at high volume. I suggest you get a proper speaker setup sometime soon with a receiver and speakers, you can still use the sub you will buy.

Another thought.

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=303-436

150 watts RMS/475 watts peak

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-635

150 watt amp (ia that the rms or peak?)

http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=303-432

200 watts RMS/430 watts peak


I don't really know how the size of the driver and its wattage compare...


On the last one even though the peak is lower its rms is higher. I would assume that would be the better choice o_O?


Maybe even brands differ I don't know... Like AMD and Intell processors.

depends on the product. They were always a lower tiered mass produced "affordable" product. At least in their "pro" line. Honestly, I think you could get better cheaper.
