I posted this on another message board but now that i'm a member here, it makes much more sense for this thread to be here:
I have a set of Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 speakers for my computer.
They sound pretty decent but they were a little rough outside and the wiring on them was shotty. If you looked at them funny they would get staticy. Instead of open ended speaker wire they used a 3.5 mm jack with tiny crap wire.
I got bored and ordered some nice locking binding posts, upgraded the wiring, sanded, painted, cleared.
No more static, no more cutting out. I like the look now so no more speaker grills.
the color is GM Nassau Blue Metallic
