ONYX is rated 4.6818 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back side passive radiator I got this for a Black Friday deal as it was about 300 dollars off its regular price, it was a steal so I took it. So far I am absolutely amazed by what it has done for me so far, definitely the best portable speaker I've ever had, one problem I did notice although, which is the reason I'm writing this review, is the passive radiator on the back of the device, at any volume, it makes a noise with heavy bass, it sounds as if someone is tapping on the metal, I can hear the noise at any given volume, I have also noticed that with some songs, at about half volume the back radiator almost cannot take the bass and I thought I was going to blow it so I quickly turned the volume down, you could see the metal not coming in and out perfectly straight but bouncing side to side and then in and out, the noise also sounded very airy and I feared for the speaker, the song was emotional-flux pavilion. I do not know if this is just my speaker but this definitely is a letdown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing!!! I've had several bluetooth speakers in the past, this one is by far the best!!! Everything about it outperforms the rest. The sound is unbeatable. Most bluetooth speakers are easy to use, but this one never fails or disconnects like all others occasionally do. Sound is crisp and clear, but it can also bump!! I use this around the house more than my home audio system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My auxilliary Cable isn't working on my TV I bought this a few weeks ago and purchased an auxiliary cable to get sound from my TV to the HK but it didn't work. I tried playing the the sound options but still can't figure it out. Is there another cable that I should have bought?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable quality! I've had the Onyx Studio for a few weeks now, and I am very impressed and still surprised by its sound quality and clarity. For such a small package it has exceptional sound, bass, highs and never muffled. Love thats it portable and battery last for hours at high volumes. We take it to the beach and love it, South Florida is a perfect place for this. As far as price I got mine on an incredible deal (Sprint store $149) so sorry for those who paid regular price. But price has nothing to do with the quality. Best portable speaker I've seen and I'm a music lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! Wow, talking about carrying a big stick. This system is small, powerful and clear. The bass booms with a clear sharp rumble. Perfect for Jazz.

Can i connect my harmon speaker to a smart tv

Asked by: Elaine
If your TV has bluetooth then yes. I do not have bluetooth on my TV so I have been looking for a dongle that broadcasts a stereo bluetooth signal. I went to Best Buy and they suggested one that was on sale for around $30. It did not work very well and the sound sounded very muddy. People are also saying that they were getting a lag in audio. So I would say that you might have to try a few options as I have not found a combination that works for me just yet.
