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.

Can you ceiling mount the hkts 20 surround speakers?

Asked by: prvan
No, you cannot ceiling mount the HKTS20. These speakers are not designed for ceiling mounting. They can be mounted on the wall very nicely, but we do not recommend mounting them to a ceiling as this is not what they are intended for, and the mounting brackets will not work on a ceiling mount set-up.

I recently brought HKTS20 and I would like to know on how to convert this device into a wireless system

Asked by: Niranjan
This is possible but would require investing in additional equipment. You would need to purchase a Bluetooth adapter that would transmit the audio signal to a wireless satellite speaker. Harman Kardon does not have any product that is specifically designed to do this. It is ideal to stick with wires instead of going wireless since this will avoid the delay or drop-outs that wireless connections can cause and most importantly, going wireless for your speakers would bypass the wonderful sounding built-in Harman Kardon amplifier.

My TV hasn't got Bluetooth but Wi-Fi connectivity only. Can I connect on Wifi?

Asked by: SAM SUNG
I assumed that we are dealing with your TV feature. If your TV is Wi-Fi capable then the answer is yes, you can connect your TV via Wi-Fi

Can you remove the plastic feet on the satellites, so it looks cleaner mounted on the wall? Also, don't plan to add more speakers, stands, how does the sound of these compare to the HKTS 16? I have an older Denon AVR-589. Thanks

Asked by: Joesl8
Yes the plastic feet on the satellites can be removed. The HKTS16 is a higher end system. It has more power and a wider frequency response than the HKTS 20. Your Denon AVR 589 has an output power of 75 watts per channel therefore it should be compatible, since you can maximize the full capacity of your AVR without worrying that it will cause an issue with the speaker.

Hi Team, As per the above comments, HKTS 20 supports up to 80W and HKTS 16 supports up to 120W. So my question is, does this (Watt change) make any Sound quality difference between HKTS 20 and HKTS 16.

Asked by: relmurali
The sound quality of the HKTS 20 is much more better than the HKTS 16. In terms of loudness the HKTS 16 will be more powerful since it can handle more wattage than the HKTS 20.
