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.

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 don't know which one is surround sound and which one is speaker.  And Can send you recommend about the receivers that would be fit with hkts20. 

Asked by: Sopheakkanara
The HKTS20 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.

The HKTS20 speakers are rated 8 ohms and can handle 10 - 80 watts of amplification. The Onkyo TX NR555 receiver provides 85 watts per channel at 8 ohm. With this data these speakers are compatible with this receiver.

The HKTS 20 require connection to an amplifier/receiver to work. The only way to make these speaker wireless would be if the amplifier/receiver has Bluetooth capability.

can i use with rx-v381

Asked by: tddo
The HKTS 20 can handle up to 120 watts of power at 8 ohms. As long as the RX-V381 can distribute up to 120 watts or below at 8 ohms per channel, it will work fine with these speakers.

Will this work with sony receiver : STRDN1070 Experience amazing sound with Hi-Res Audio in a powerful, easy-to-use receiver, 7.2 Ch. 1155W A/V Receiver (165 W x 7 at 6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 0.9%), 4K HDR compatibility

Asked by: ashuda
We do not recommend that you use the HKTS 20 with the STRDN1070. The HKTS 20 can safely handle only up to 80W of power. The difference between what the HKTS 20 and the power that the AVR can deliver, can cause overpowering the speaker which will damage it.
