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 117.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks awesome and sounds great Bought two systems on cyber Monday been a fan for a long time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound! I came across this deal on cyber Monday. I had a collection of surround sound speakers that I have had for years. They were all good quality prices that I had picked up over the years. I bought this set because of the steep discount, but I have to say it is amazing. I never knew what I was missing before. Crisp, clear sound and good bass.

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.

Is this a complete system or just speakers? The advertisement says complete 5.1  Home theater surround sound system. Which a complete system would include a  receiver  but I see people asking what receiver works with these speakers. 

Asked by: Danny21
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 . Any of our current receivers (AVR 1510S, 1610S and 1710S) will work with these speakers. http://www.harmankardon.com/home-theater-systems/

Hello, Can you tell me what receiver would be better to purchase? Sony STRDH130 200W 2.0 ch 100W x 2 @ 8 ohms or the Sony 1015W 7.2 ch 145W x 7 @ 6ohms

Asked by: Esha
Both of them would have problems with the HKTS 16. For the STRDH130 , It can only handle 2 channels while you have a 5.1 system speaker. In other words you can only use 2 speakers in this receiver,defeating the purpose of purchasing a 5.1 home theater. The 2nd one has a power that is too much for the HKTS 16 to handle. The HKTS 16 can handle 120W @ 8 ohms while the receiver drives 145W @ 6 ohms.  I would suggest having a receiver that drives close to 120W and is rated @8 ohms.  I would recommend an Harman/Kardon AVR 1710s which provides 100W x7 @ 8 ohms which is just right for the HKTS 16 .

Hi I have Sony 1015W 72Ch 4K Ultra Hd and 3D Pass Through AV Home Theatre Receiver, model STRDH770, is this compatible with HKTS 16?

Asked by: Jun0530
The receiver should be rated at 8 ohms and can drive 90W-100W per channel for it to be compatible with the HKTS 16.

yamaha RX-V483 HKTS16 compatible? - korea 220v / USA 110v how many volt is HKTS16? 100v? 110? 120? korea use downtrans? 110V dontrans compatible? 120V dontrans compatible?

Asked by: ktwoo
The Yamaha RX-V483 is compatible with the HKTS 16.The HKTS series and all our receivers sold in this US site are US models, so they are 110 volt versions. The satellite speakers are completely passive. You can connect them regardless of voltage. However, the HKTS subwoofer is a 110V. In order to use this in Korea, please use a step down transformer.

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.

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
That is exactly correct. The rating for this home theater system is generally at 120 W at 8 ohms. You may wire your receiver to be at 130 W at 8 ohms and this will work perfectly as long as it is not turned up to the maximum volume.
