    Let's clear up a few misconceptions here.

    You don't have a 2.1 system. You have a 2 channel sub/sat system with a shared bass module. If you were to add another one just like that one, you will still have a 2 channel system, but now it will be running another 2 channel sub/sat system in parallel.

    Ultilmately, you still have a 2 channel system. If that's ok with you, then simply hook up another set in parallel if your sound cardcan handle it.

    Mark is correct that 5.1 systems have a dedicated LFE (low frequency effects) channel whereas stereo systems do not.

    I believe there can be beneficial effects to simply doubling up certain loudspeakers. The Double Advent speaker system still has quite a following going back thirty years. I'd love to hear the results of doubling the Monsoon planars used with my computer. Unfortunately, I would need to fabricate some sort of new frame since I would stack them vertically.

    Unless you are watching movies on your computer and have a 5.1 card, all you will ever get is a 2.0 system (aka stereo), perhaps duplicated with front and rear copies of the same information. If you want higher quality or more sound output, then I would lean towards simply a better 2.0 system.

    According to the Klipsch website, the model 4.2 is "currently unavailable"
