Engineered to serve as the complete home theater loudspeaker package, the HKTS 20BQ system integrates high-performance 5.1-channel speakers – front and rear satellites, plus a center loudspeaker – with a subwoofer in one sophisticated offering. The combination of dual-driver, center-channel speakers for replaying distinct movie dialogue, powerful satellites that envelop you in all the high energy of the best entertainment and a powered sub for low-frequency thrills makes this speaker system more than equal to handling the sonic excitement of Hollywood blockbusters and your favorite musical offerings. Constant-directivity waveguides fitted to the satellite speakers’ soft-dome tweeters decrease their directivity at high frequencies to produce a wide stereo image across a large listening area. The system looks elegant as well; the speakers’ black finish and streamlined structures will fit into any interior design. And it’s flexible; you can use HTFS 3/E floor stands to place the speakers at ear height and add additional speakers to change the system from 5.1 channels to 7.1. This six-piece system provides a best-in-class cinema experience while elevating your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary.

HKTS 20 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Sound I am certainly not an "audiophile", but I do have high expectations when it comes to my surround sound systems. My wife and I are almost physically blown away by the sound these speakers produce! We watch movies all the time, so movie theater quality sound is very important to us. The subwoofer with the bass booster at 50% power rattles our windows and at about 75% power, it makes our wood floors creak underneath it! The smaller speakers are very clear and crisp. It's insane sound! We definitely recommend these speakers. We currently have the speakers hooked up to my old RCA receiver I have had since 2002 which produces 500 watts, so it's more than enough power. We are extremely satisfied with these speakers. "It sounds just like a movie theater!" is what my mom and sister both said when I was showing the speakers off to them. Do not hesistate to purchase these speakers. They are amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first surround sound system I purchased this system for $189. Great deal. The subwoofer adds a great dimension to the sound. And while the front and surround speakers can be considered "bookshelf" sized, they have really good sound. I'm impressed and I'm considering purchasing a second set if they go on sale again.

I bought the HKTS 20 and the HK3700. Is there anyway to hook up the center speaker? All the other speakers work fine.

Asked by: Mel99
The HK3700 is a stereo receiver, it only supports left and right channels along with a powered subwoofer. Using a center speaker requires a surround sound receiver. Please be advised, you might be getting sound from the 4 satellite speakers but it's still playing in stereo mode, not surround.

Can I connect it to a TV using Digital out/Aux in without a receiver

Asked by: AS Nair
The HKTS 20 is a passive speaker system with a powered subwoofer and it must be connected to an audio/video receiver in order to power the surround sound system. You must buy a separate audio/video receiver in order to power the surround sound system.

What is the difference between HKTS 15 and HKTS 20 ?

Asked by: Dhwanit
The main differences between the HKTS 20 and HKTS 15 are as follows: HKTS 20's surround speakers has larger tweeters compared to HKTS 15. HKTS 20's subwoofer is more powerful compared to HKTS 15's subwoofer. HKTS 20's speaker system has deeper bass compared to HKTS 15. Overall, they are both excellent surround sound speaker systems, but the larger tweeters, woofers and subwoofer in the HKTS 20 will do a better job filling up a larger room and give you more immersive sound.
