    I dont know what will be you primary use for them.

    I have audition the Promedia 5.1 Ultra, and for me they are the best computer speaker set. Very good sound quality, very detail, and good sub. Overall its the best there is. I cant comment on the JBLs SCS178 because I havent audition them, but I think the klipsch are very tough to beat.

    Good luck with your choice.

    i have the klipsch promedia for my computer and if my computer sound device didnt go whacky on me i wouldnt have a home theater to date cause there pretty damn good and i've had ALOT of computer speakers, the control panel volume for them goes from 1-80 you'll never put it over 65 while watching movies but listening to music it doesnt quite get there if the volume could go higher im sure i would listen to music on like 85 or something. I was unaware you could get something that good for $400 or whatever they cost now and i dont care what anybody says the subwoofer kicks major buttocks for how much it cost, nothing but a foot rest for me now though..

    I agree with Greg. As far as I'm concerned, if you can't give an opinion without bashing, don't give one.

    Klipsch are a brighter speaker and JBLs are a more neutral speaker, you have to listen and decide for yourself....

    I have a JBL Northridge setup and all I can say is that it kicks butt.

    Most of Klipsch speakers are very efficient, therefore drive very easy and get very loud....quickly.... and they certainly seem very popular around here.......

    As far as one vrs the other, it's all according to taste........ I prefer the older JBLs to the newer lines unless you get into the Pro or Tik series......
