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 4.3 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb and stylish sound Excellent, sturdy and good-looking speakers. At the price I picked it up during HK's black friday sale it was a steal. Setup isn't bad either - all wires and necessary parts (except mounting screws) are included. I do recommend having a second person help set up the mounts if necessary as it can be tricky to thread the screw through the base. In terms of sound, I'm no master audiophile, but the increase in quality in going from a soundbar to this set was incredible. The subwoofer in particlar is among the best I've heard for a home system in this price range, even at low volume. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy, small footprint, and what a punch. I upgraded my Panasonic home theater system and decided to go with the Marantz NR1607 receiver and the Harman Kardon HKTS 16 for speakers. Did some research on multiple sites and this was the best setup for my particular need. I was familiar with the footprint of these speakers since I shopped them against Definitive technologies. Overall, I have to say, I'm very pleased. I had some fine tuning issues with the receiver, but once that was sorted out, the sound that was emitted was wonderful. The clarity and deep base was exactly what I was looking for. Using this setup in our 22 x 24 ft. family room with 16 ft ceiling and no distortion. Nothing but positive things to say. Hope this system last me a long time. And happy shopping.

I have a SONY STR-DN1080 receiver. It's rated at 165 watts at 6 ohms and 130 watts at 8 ohms. Will these speakers work if I do not turn it up to the maximum level?

Asked by: ChrisTX
Thank you for the answer! I read on Sony's site that it is rated at 165 at 6 ohms. A review site reported that Sony told them it was rated130 at 8 ohms. I'm glad it is only 120 watts since I do not want to blow these awesome speakers. BTW, it would help if you would also send your response to the email that I submitted. Thanks again!

I've currently own HKTS 16bq and planning to buy pioneer VSX-532 receiver . Please let me know the receiver is suitable or not , if not please suggest me another one

Asked by: vr2224
The HKTS 16 has a power rating of generally 120 W at 8 ohms. As long as the receiver you plan to buy can handle this rating, it is definitely suitable. If it can't handle this, I recommend one of our receivers, the AVR 1710S. Its power rating is 100 W at 8 ohms - so long as you do not turn the volume up to the maximum, it will work perfectly.

I have a Technics SA-AX540 receiver. It is rather old. Are these speakers compatible with this unit?

Asked by: AirmanMJD
Yes it is, the Technics SA-AX540 drives 100W per channel at 8 ohms and the HKTS 16 can handle up to 120W at 8 ohms. This would work with each other pretty well.

Is this bluetooth or will there be cables to speakers?

Asked by: Kent2100
The HKTS 16 is a passive speaker system with a powered subwoofer. It must be connected to an audio/video receiver in order to have a surround sound system and cannot be used via bluetooth . Any of our current receivers (AVR 1510S, 1610S and 1710S) will work with these speakers.
