expiredThe Best Desktop Speakers you’ll ever find for $110 shipped (Tax only in NJ): 200W Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX

I picked up my Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 THX Certified Speaker System about 4 years ago for a couple of hundred bucks after a recommendation from a friend.  They absolutely blew me away with their deep, rich, loud sound.

Since then, the world has gone wireless but for desktop speakers which don’t really need to be untethered, these cannot be beat.

Today, they are knocked down to the lowest price we can find, $109.99 shipped after Coupon Code JINGLEBELLS at BuyDig
