Klipsch Promedia 2.1 vs Logitech Z623
Still having a tough time choosing one? Well, then let me take you to the comparison of these two. But before we compare them, you should know about each of them in detail first. So, I will take you through a little overview of each speaker.
Klipsch Promedia 2.1 overview
Right off the bat, I must say the looks and design of this speaker set are great. It comes with some simplistic design added with a touch of elegance. You can look at them and say these are high-end speakers.
Aside from the looks, the smart user-friendly feature of this speaker is commendable. They have an additional control pod that you can detach from the set. It makes controlling the speakers very easy for you.
Another cool thing about this speaker setup is the compact size. This makes it very easy and convenient for you to set up the speakers on your computer desk. Even after placing the speakers, you will have plenty of room on your computer desk.
Now, let’s talk about the sound quality, and I am very excited to talk about this. I loved the sound quality of the speakers. As I was expecting the classic Klipsch quality sounds from them, I wasn't disappointed at all.
First of all, the bass you get from the subwoofer comes in tight, and it's very responsive. You won’t face any crossover of frequencies there. As for the satellite speakers, they were beyond my expectations.
On the speakers, you get crisp and clear high tones that just stuck in my ears. The mid-range is clear without any mushiness at all. And when you combine the tight low end with the speaker sound quality, you get a perfect set of speakers for your computer.
To top things off, this speaker comes at a shockingly reasonable price. With the kind of quality it puts out for you, there is simply nothing to complain about this one after you look at the price.
One thing I would nitpick from the speakers is the build material. The speakers are made of plastic which I am not a big fan of. Also, the setup can feel a bit happy if you like to move around your speakers every once in a while.
Aside from that, there is simply nothing wrong with this speaker. Whether it’s about looks or sound quality, you shouldn’t have any concerns with it. The only concern I have with this is the durability.

Logitech Z623 overview
The first impression I had with this wasn’t that great. I wouldn’t say I liked the design and looks this speaker comes with. Also, they seemed to be a bit bulky, which can have issues with the small space setup. So, you shouldn’t expect good looks from this set of speakers.
While the looks aren’t the strong suit of the speakers, durability is top of the line for this. It has metal grills on the speakers that give the best possible protection to the center part. Also, the built quality is quite heavy; it will not get damaged that easily. All in all, it will last for quite a long time.
Most of the value of this speaker set lies in its sound quality. You get crisp, clear sounds coming from the speakers. They tend to have a bit of an unnatural tone, but they still deliver sound pleasing to the ear.
What I like a lot about these speakers is the peak power performance. You can get to an extreme volume level with this set of speakers as the peak power reaches 400watts. The loud sounds from the speakers make it a great choice to have for your music setup.
As for the subwoofer, you shouldn't have many complaints about that. Because when it comes to pumping out bass, this one does an impressive job in that aspect. In combination with a loud volume, you get newer levels of audio with this whole setup.
Something that felt helpful to me was the RCA connection. Using that, you can hook it up with your music system or your tv as well. So, you have got options on this one; they aren’t only your computer speakers.
Now, there are several things I didn’t like much about the speakers. First of all, the design like I talked about earlier isn’t the most pleasing one to have. The bulky size of the whole set can be a bit problematic for some.
However, when you consider the price of the speaker set, it comes at a good price. The quality is on par with some high-end choices while it doesn’t cost as much as you would expect.

Comparison between Klipsch Promedia 2.1 vs. Logitech Z623
Both these speakers have a lot of similarities. However, they have differences as well. And you will see in a bit that one speaker excels in some aspects while the other excels in different ones. Here it goes-
You get excellent sound quality from both speakers. Although, Klipsch Promedia 2.1 has a tighter bass which keeps it in the front in this race.
Design and looks:
There is a clear winner here, which is Klipsch. It comes with a simple, elegant, and compact design. While the Logitech Z623 fails miserably due to the bulkiness.
In terms of durability, I have to go with Logitech Z623. It has got better build quality and material compared to the plastic build of Klipsch.
Well, both the speakers are priced reasonably considering their quality. But Klipsch has a lower price than Logitech Z623. So, Klipsch goes ahead in the price category as well.
Now, this is a tough factor to consider. On the one hand, Klipsch has that detachable controller for easy use; on the other hand, Logitech Z623 comes with an RCA connection. So, they both have their perks; you have to decide which one you need the most.

All in all, in the battle of Klipsch Promedia 2.1 vs. Logitech Z623, I would say Klipsch is the winner. It excels in design, sound quality, tighter bass, compact size, and lower price. If you are okay with the plastic construction and don’t plan to throw your speakers around then, you shouldn’t worry too much.
However, if you want louder volume or the option to connect the speakers with your tv or music system, Logitech Z623 is a better choice. It's also the go-to option for durability.
