Logitech specializes in producing speakers that produce a high-quality sound with an outstanding performance. On the other hand, Klipsch is a well-known brand in the USA that produces what are called “the Ferrari of speakers”

After comparing Klipsch Promedia 2.1 desktop computer speakers and Logitech z625 computer speakers, Klipsch Promedia THX computer speakers stands out as the best desktop speakers worth the money than Logitech z625.
Below are some of the highlights and features in both speaker models to demonstrate why Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers are better than Logitech z625.
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
The Klipsch Promedia 2.1 is a THX Certified speaker system that comes with two elegant satellite speakers and a deep rumbling subwoofer.
Whether you are want to use these speakers for gaming, movies or music, they will quickly become the center of entertainment in your room. These are the speakers that were made to amuse you.
In terms of the sound quality, the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers give well-balanced audio. In fact, the sound is so clear that you can clearly differentiate between the lows, mids and the highs. We will say more on this in a moment.
The best part about these speakers is that, unlike most speakers, it comes with independent volume control for the subwoofer. This allows you to adjust the bass in any way you wish.
However, the downfall of this speaker system has to be the back DIN connectors to the subwoofer. Their design makes them susceptible to damage.
The Logitech z625 Speaker System With Subwoofer And Optical Input
The Logitech Z625, on the other hand, are ideal speakers that you can set on your desk next to your desktop.
This speaker system came as an update of the Logitech Z623. Being an update, it has similar characteristics to the Z623, with only a few additions, of course. To be exact, the only noticeable addition in the Z625 is the optical input.
With this optical input addition, you can connect these speakers to your console or your TV with ease. If you ask me, that’s a great addition.
Build and Design
Next up, we want to take a closer look into how they look and the other special design features.
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers have a great design that makes it look elegant and simply stunning. The satellites are tilted at about ten degrees towards your seat, to direct the sounds towards you. In this way, you will be able to hear your footsteps in a game.
Also, each of these satellites are said to use Klipsch proprietary MicroTractrix horns. These help maintain clarity regardless of the audio source.
This speaker system relies on a hybrid digital amplifier. This allows you to enjoy your sounds at just about any volume.
As we mentioned before, the Logitech Z625 consists of two satellite speakers, which are connected to a massive subwoofer. All of these components have well-built grilles and they are perfect for your entertainment.
While the satellite speakers measure at 8 inches, they are different. The right satellite speaker consists of all the controls to the entire set.
On the control panel, you have the volume, the bass level adjustments as well as the power button (ON/OFF).
Also, both of these satellite speakers connect to the subwoofer directly. However, since the right satellite has the controls, its cable is much thicker than that of the left satellite to the subwoofer. On top of that, you have an auxiliary input along with the headphone out.
Sound Aspects and Performance
Now for the part you have been waiting for. In this section, we want to find out if these speakers really suit your home needs. As usual, we will start with the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system.
Klipsch Promedia 2.1
In terms of the performance and the sound quality, the Klipsch Promedia 2.1 offers the best of the best- it isn’t the Ferrari of speakers for nothing. There are a lot of reasons to love this speaker system.
First of all, The Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers have a maximum sound pressure level of 106 dB. With such a feature, these speakers can give out the highest volumes reachable.
Besides that, these speakers are said to produce a frequency that ranges from 31Hz to about 20 kHz. This should be enough to keep you entertained with the heavy bass regardless of what you are doing.
I did promise to talk about the frequency responses. Klipsch Promedia2.1 speakers produce an excellent balance of mids, lows, and highs.
These responses are clear and more defined though when you compare Klipsch promedia 2.1 with Edifier s350, the later stands out. Such craftsmanship in audio design listening experience only makes them the best speakers to have if you are looking for a set of versatile speakers.
When it comes to the performance, the Logitech Z625 never disappoints. First of all, it delivers a total peak power output of 200W.
In detail, the subwoofer produces a peak power of 130 watts, while each satellite speaker produces 35W peak. So, whether you want to play a game or watch a movie, these speakers will deliver.
A good factor worth mentioning is that the satellites are bi-amped with a 1” tweeter and 3” mid-range driver crossed over at 5 kHz. This allows them to give you distinct and well-defined sounds.
Also, the Logitech Z625 comes with multiple inputs. You can connect them to your TV, Pc or your console using the optical inputs, 3.5 mm, and RCA inputs concurrently.
Pros and Cons
Let’s face it; no audio speaker set is perfect; that’s why you always have the choice to pick which speaker system that has acceptable flaws.
Now, lets take a quick look at the advantages and disadvantages of both of these speakers.

- The speakers are built in a plastic material that makes the model look like it’s less durable.
- The DIN connecting options, which we talked about earlier, are made in a softer material, making it susceptible to impairment wearing.
