The “next step” premiered last October with the introduction of the ProMedia 2. After studying the schematic for the main power supply I noticed that the next step was to test the secondary transformer wires that provide lower voltage both in positive and negative relation. Quick features that reflect the most common feedback following the v.

One note to add: Home stereo speakers generally are not magnetically shielded, so they had to be kept away from the monitor, and the stereo components were bulky and added complexity and heat to the workspace. It was definitely a step forward in the evolution of computer gaming speakers. Everything looked ok, darn. The Klipsch ProMedia 2.

The design was based on user feedback-even the format comes from those that obviously wanted quality to be brought down to the 2. Since I had just finished reading a book about klipzch I decided to give this repair my best attempt and thankfully it worked.

Resistance Values of New Transformer. The sub unit, tucked away in a ported enclosure that also contains the W amplifier, contains a 6.

Installation of the new transformer went pretty with some soldering and heat shrink tubing and I was delighted when first switching it on I could hear all the usual signs of life.

I was missing sound from the right sided speaker!!!! More can be learned from the THX website, www. Some people note that their units get quite hot on the back aluminum access panel and I know from opening the unit that the power amplifier transistors are coupled to this panel to keep them cool. Next I removed all screws to open the access panel.

Testing main transformer primary wiring. Infinite resistance was indicated on the primary wires which meant that the fuse had indeed blown. It has nice rich sound with impressive bass. If this certain transformer is not available you after trying the eBay route you can use different ones as long as it has they have the same exact values and are also center tapped bipolar.

The large format system was great for many people, including both gamers and those implementing a computer based home theatre system. I found an excellent webpage posted by Dale Thompson that provides many electronic schematics and descriptions to explain the operation of the 2.


Back Aluminum Panel heat dissipater. Please use the above table to see that your transformer is performing properly if you are having a power problem. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. After doing a good amount of searching on the web about the ProMedia system I found a lot of other owners have similar and sometimes worse problems with their units such as burnt out resistors, capacitors, transistors or issues with the control module. Regardless of music played, multimedia sound systems all sounded the same: The obvious solution was for a company to produce a high quality sound system for use with a computer or other personal audio device, such as a portable CD or MP3 player.

A search for the subsoofer revealed that the transformer is no longer available for purchase. No green suboofer on the control module, no thump of the subwoofer when switched on, and no internal click of the relay. The subwoofer of the Klipsch ProMedia 2. When measuring wires with the DMM probes make sure that your fingers are not touching the probes at the same time.
