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 4.5 out of 5 by 94.
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

Will this work with the AVR 1510S?

Hello, can i use theses speakers with the AVR 1610S?

Do you nead a receiver or can you hook it up to a sony racord player with a rca line out

Asked by: Chris f
The HKTS16 is a wired passive speaker system with a powered sub. It must be connected to an audio/video surround sound receiver in order to function. Any one of our AVR receivers will work with these speakers.

PLEASE HKTS 16 is recommended with ONKYO TXNR 656 700 WATTS 7.2 CHANNEL ?

Asked by: Felix Piloto
The HKTS 16 speakers can handle up to 120W @ 8-ohms while the specifications on the Onkyo receiver say that it drives up to 160W @ 6-ohms. Given that the HKTS 16’s satellites and center speaker are rated at 8-ohms, it will draw power less than 160W from the Onkyo receiver. This makes this receiver compatible with our HKTS 16.

1.What would a nice choice of avr be? 2.Will it work with YAMAHA RX V679BL?

Asked by: VEXS
The HKTS 16 can handle upto 120w per channel. Any AVR that has a power rating of upto 120watts per channel would be okay. Your Yamaha can produce 125watts per channel at 8ohms. 5 watts of power is not enough to make a big difference. Just don't turn it up to max and you should be okay.
