Highlights

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 3/E 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.

Features

Complete 5.1-channel home theater surround-sound system

As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 16BQ/WQ has everything you need – including satellite bases, wall-mounting hardware and all necessary cables – in one box. And by including removable shelf-mount stands and wall-mount brackets for the satellite and center speakers, the system offers you great flexibility for installing the speakers in different locations.

Voice-matched, two-way, 120W satellite speakers

The HKTS 16BQ/WQ system’s five voice-matched satellite speakers with dual 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 1/2-inch (13 millimeter) high-frequency tweeters are engineered to work together to produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. You can even place these video-shielded speakers near your TV without causing magnetic interference.

Powerful, down-firing, 200W subwoofer

The HKTS 16BQ/WQ’s 200-watt down-firing subwoofer with an 8-inch (200-millimeter) driver offers deep, authoritative low-frequency realism that lends a richness and believability to whatever imagery you’re seeing on screen – while remaining surprisingly unimposing off screen. While viewing an action film, you hear every crash, bang and boom the soundtrack has to offer.

Stunning modern design

The HKTS 16BQ/WQ system represents a décor-friendly complement to any entertainment center or home theater. Its contemporary styling incorporates glossy, black (BQ) or white (WQ) accents, polished surfaces and elegant symmetry – elements that are clearly part of the rich Harman Kardon® design heritage. The system’s compact, unobtrusive dimensions offer virtually unlimited installation options.

Bass-boost controls and phase switches for subwoofer

Controls on the HKTS 16BQ/WQ’s 200-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Bass-boost and phase switches also allow you to optimize the subwoofer’s performance, depending upon where you place the speakers. A subwoofer properly in phase with the satellite speakers generates clear, and lifelike sounds for instruments such as drums, piano and plucked strings.

Magnetically shielded loudspeaker components

Unshielded loudspeaker components can upset the magnetic field in a conventional TV, resulting in visible color shifts and possible long-term damage. But the HKTS 16BQ/WQ’s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV.

LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector

The HKTS 16BQ/WQ includes an LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector that bypasses the subwoofer’s internal, low-pass crossover. As a result, you can use a receiver/processor’s dedicated subwoofer output to provide enhanced low-end performance.

Compatible with HTFS 2 floor stands

If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, the optional HTFS 2 floor stands (sold separately) set the HKTS 16BQ/WQ satellite speakers at the ideal, ear-level listening position. The aluminum-extrusion columns, which also include a self-contained wire-management system, will elegantly complementing virtually any décor.

Upgradable to 7.1 channels

If you want to move beyond the all-encompassing power of this 5.1-channel surround-sound system, you can easily add a pair of front-height or rear-channel surround loudspeakers – and hence unleash the 7.1-channel capability of your HKTS 16BQ/WQ system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.

Energy-saving features

To adhere to European guidelines, the HKTS 16BQ/WQ system uses low standby-power consumption – less than 1 watt – and includes a number of energy-efficient features. For example, an auto-power on/off function automatically controls the subwoofer in response to a relayed voltage or an audio input signal. (If the subwoofer receives no audio signal for 15 minutes, the subwoofer automatically shuts off.) By meeting such “green” standards, this speaker system keeps sound quality high – and your power bill low.

Harman Kardon sound: A legacy of achievement

Exemplifying the balance among high style, modern design and audio ingenuity, the HKTS 16BQ/WQ home theater system embodies the spirit of Harman Kardon innovation, a legacy that discerning audio enthusiasts have revered for almost 60 years. Harman Kardon engineers have consistently advanced the science of sound, developing products that are dedicated to quality, durability and, most importantly, generating rave reviews from audiophiles.

HKTS 16 is rated 4.3514 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Surround Sound and Very Satisfied Great speaker and sub. When I first bought this I didn't know what to expect but when I hooked everything up, it was amazing. The bass was amazing and the sound was crisp. I paired this up with a yamaha RX-V375 and the combination is great. I had this for about 7 months now and I cannot find one thing wrong about this system. If you are new to surround sound like me, get it. You won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid speakers I bought this thinking that the sub-woofer was the "receiver" much like a PC sound system; I wasn't unnecessarily disappointed to find out this wasn't the case, becasue those systems are very limited. Never-the-less I am very happy with the system, the sound is brilliant, the speakers are well built, the box came with everything one might need to set the system up, and the price was right!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic sound for the price! I'm no audiophile. I was looking for a great set of speakers for a decent price. I am very impressed with the sound quality of these speakers. Bass hits hard and sounds pretty amazing. Definitely no negatives regarding the sound. Aesthetically they look great. Nice glossy finish on the top and bottom. They look great mounted on my walls. The speaker cable provided had more than enough length, which I am very please about. There is no hardware for mounting the wall brackets, so heads up. My only gripe about the product are the wall mounts. I understand the design intent to make them as unobtrusive as possible, however, this makes it very difficult for installation. You can only make a very small hole for the speaker cable, otherwise you risk the hole being exposed once the speakers are installed. Not a deal breaker, but it made that part of the installation challenging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound & easy to setup I bought this as a Christmas gift and was able to get one for myself with the money I saved. It is easy to setup and sounds wonderful. definitely worth the money. If you buy the receiver you can save yourself the headache of trying to manually trying to adjust the sound. This is do to the mic auto sound adjustment which is wonderful. This is a must buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great looking speakers with great audio quality I always wanted to buy Harman kardon speaker system and with the deal $189 it was no brainer. To me, Bose speaker system is too over priced for the quality. I opted for white color, Speakers looks and feels great in my living room. no need to mention that it produces a great quality audio. I am using this with my new yamaha RX675 AVR. The best thing, speakers came in with all the speaker wires and cable for the powered subwoofer. The length of the speaker wires is adequate, too. The speaker wires were color coded for different speakers. The subwoofer is down/floor facing, though. I was not expecting this. I do not think that this feature was mentioned in the product details. I am not sure, if floor facing subs are any better than regular front facing subs. The only problem was the wall mounting which was somewhat tedious. The screw from the wall mount to the speaker are too short and you can lose screws in the body of the wall mount. Overall, I am extremely happy with this purchase! it seems like dream come true with this top industry branded, high quality, good looking and very reasonable priced speaker system.
