Compact, 5.1-channel, 120W home theater speaker system with 200W subwoofer.

If you’re going to add surround sound to your home playback system, you will want to do it once – and do it right. That’s why the HKTS 16BQ/WQ home theater loudspeaker includes five voice-matched satellite loudspeakers for the center, left/right front and left/right surround channels, in addition to an attention-grabbing, 200-watt powered subwoofer. The speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent interference that can damage your television. Together, the combination creates an immersive, 360-degree surround-sound environment. We’ve engineered all of the system components to work together, resulting in a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. If you want to adjust the sound, we’ve equipped the subwoofer with phase and bass-boost controls. We’ve even made the system compatible with HTFS 2 floor stands that raise your speakers to ear level, and you can expand the system from 5.1 channels to 7.1 for an even more encompassing sonic experience. The system looks beautiful, too; it’s available in streamlined, glossy black or white to fit into any décor.By delivering movie dialogue, music and effects in this high-quality fashion, the HKTS 16BQ/WQ ensures that you’ll have a best-in-class cinema experience while it elevates your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary.

HKTS 16 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 101.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Design and sound I bought this a couple of weeks ago. Pretty satified with the way it looks and it sounds pretty good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Speakers for your money Love them. So clear, super bass and look great. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great products I bought a set of these before Christmas and love them. In fact just received my 2nd set while on sale to make a 7.2 system. My receiver is HK 1710s. I've owned HK equipment since early 80's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior design and great sound! Got these speakers in the Thanksgiving sale! They were shipped promptly. The best part is the design as with any Harman Kardon. The speakers and subwoofers are premium looking so they enhance your living room ambience (having seen other non HK HT setup at my friend's place where speaker looked odd with their boxy shape in a living room). I am not an audiophile but an above average consumer when comes to sound quality. I am completely satisfied with the sound. I hooked it up to Onkyo NR646 receiver and it covered up my decent sized living room perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speakers packaged well, system sounds fantastic! The whole system was packaged extremely well and thank God because UPS mishandled it and there was a gash on the side of the box when it was delivered. Luckily nothing was damaged inside. Speakers was easy to install for me because I have large pieces of furniture to place them on hidden and on our new TV stand, so no mounting necessary for me. Paired extremely well with my Sony AV 5.1 receiver and the system setup was simple thanks to Sony's easy setup. Got them on saler on harmonkardon.com so it made it an excellent value! Highly recommend this S16 home theatre system for power, clarity and high quality sound on all levels with good connectivity to any AV receiver. Truly amazing but then again it's Harmon Kardon. Thank you. Regards, Johnny

Good Morning, Can i connect the speakers to a DENON AVR910W. Thanks

Asked by: Gonzalo
The HKTS16 is rated at 8 ohms and recommended amp power is 10 - 120 Watts. Your DENON AVR910W specs shows that it can drive speakers with a rating of 8 ohms and has an output power of 95 Watts per channel, which is virtually a good match to the speakers and there should be no issues between the receiver and the speaker system.

what is the frequency response range of the satellites (not the total system frequency response),and the recommended subwoofer (from receiver settings) crossover setting?

Asked by: manmar
Hi. Since this is an integrated system, frequency response is only stated for the whole system. As the owner's manual states, set the speaker selector of an AVR on Small for these satellites. That will usually mean a crossover frequency in the 100 - 150 Hz range. The satellites have two 3" midranges, and will have useful output to about 100 Hz. But if you can set crossover higher without compromising audio quality, 150 to 200 Hz will be a fine solution.

is Sony STR-DN1080 compatible with this product ?

Asked by: daniel1205
The HKTS 16 speakers can handle up to 120W @ 8-ohms while the specifications on the Sony STR-DN1080 receiver say that it drives up to 165W @ 6-ohms. Given that the HKTS 16’s satellites and center speaker are rated at 8-ohms, it will draw power less than 165W from the Sony STR-DN1080. This makes this receiver compatible with our HKTS 16.

HKTS 16 is compatible with ONKYO TX-NR656 700 WATTS 7.2 CHANNEL?

Asked by: Felix Piloto
I have the same hardware configuration and I am happy with the sound quality.  Only problem is the Onkyo does not support the bass power on trigger for the sub.

Can I pair HKTS 16 with Yamaha  RXV 581 MusicCast 7 channel AV receiver perfectly?

Asked by: Sessil
Hi. Yes, looking briefly at the specs for the Yamaha, there seems to be no problem in this combination. Of course, to be able to use Atmos, or go with a full 7.2 setup, you will need additional speakers.

What's the best receiver to use with these speakers to maximize potential 

Asked by: MackD
The HKTS16 satellite speakers can each handle up to 120 watts of RMS power. This means that they can handle, and will work well with any one of our current AVR receivers including the AVR 1610S.

Hi. Is harman/kardon AVR 1700-Z compatible with HKTS 16?

Asked by: Dzordz
Yes. The HKTS 16 speakers can handle up to 120 watts per channel. This means that any receiver with a power output of 120 watts per channel or less will work fine with these speakers. If you're looking for a home theater system, here are the general rules to picking out receiver and speakers for your system. 1. Make sure the receiver can handle the impedance/ohms of the speakers. Typical impedance and 8 ohms is almost never a problem. 2. Make sure that the speakers you choose can handle the power rating of your receiver. If you have a 100 watt per channel receiver, be sure the speakers you choose have a wattage rating of 100 watts or higher. 3. Stick with the same series of speaker, so that all of the speakers have the same sonic tonal quality, giving you a seamless transition when sound travels from one speaker to another. For example, if you select the ARENA 180 floor standing speakers for your front speakers, be sure to select the ARENA series center and bookshelf speakers for your rears.
