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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from At the sale price... a TOTAL bargin Wonderfully sized sub-woofer and satellite speaker. Total overkill for my condo but the sound quality thru my HK AVR is excellent. Had a high-end sound bar before but found myself playing it overly loud hear all the subtle sounds. w/ this setup, I play at lower level but hear all the channels clearly and in "3D". Speakers are big enough to fill out the full range of sound without lokking like huge briakc in the condo. After 3 sound bars and one other system (speaker sounded great but looked huge in my small space), I've stopped trying to find a find a system I'm satisfied w/... love this setup (HKTS16+HK1610S AVR)

Do the speaker have to be mounted on the wall or can they just set on end tables?

Asked by: Concerned husband
They can either be mounted on the wall or set on end tables. The HKTS 16 comes with wall-mountable brackets for the satellite, or you can purchase the optional HTFS 2 floor stands. Please, note we recommend keeping the satellites and center channel at proportional height level and facing towards the listening area (ear level).

I'd like to purchase a better quality speaker wire for the system. What gauge speaker wire can I run with the HKTS 16?

Work with onkyo 444?

Asked by: Siddique
If you are referring to the ONKYO TX-SR444 then yes, the HKTS 16 would work with that receiver. The ONKYO TX-SR444 can provide 65 watts at 8-ohms, while the HKTS 16 can handle power up to 120 watts at 8-ohms. Please note, to drive these speakers to their full potential, you might want to consider a much powerful amp/receiver.

Hello, Which would be a better receiver to match with the HKTS16 system?  The Denon AVR-S510BT or the Denon AVR-S720W?  Would both work? Thank you.

Asked by: JK85
Yes, the HKTS 16 is compatible with both the DENON AVR-S510BT and DENON AVR-S720W receivers. The HKTS 16 can handle up to 120 watts of power at 8 ohms, while the DENON AVR-S510BT and DENON AVR-S720W distributes 70W at 8-ohms and 75W at 8-ohms, respectively. Going for the S720W would be slightly better due to it having a bit more power.

Will HKTS 16 work with Pioneer - Elite 980W 7.2-Ch?

Asked by: MIKEEEE
The HKTS16 speaker can handle up to 120W of power at 8 ohms. As long as your receiver is rated at 8 ohms and puts out 120 watts per channel or less, it will work fine with these speakers.

does it work with 230v/ 50Hz operational frequency

Asked by: Raja
The HKTS series and all our receivers sold in this US site are US models, so they are 110 volt versions. You can use a step down transformer in order to use this for 230V. Although you can use a step down transformer, the power frequency will be dropped to 50Hz compared to 60Hz (US). This will cause the unit to run a bit hotter and you my experience some humming due to the change in frequency. With that said, I would not recommend using this in another country with different voltage. Please purchase the AVR in the country where you will use it.

Will the HKTS-16 works with Onkyo TX-SR353 700W 5.1-Ch. 4K Ultra HD Receiver better..?

Asked by: Sivap
Yes, the HKTS 16 would work with the ONKYO TX-SR353. The ONKYO TX-SR353 can drive power up to 140 watts at 6 ohms while the HKTS 16 can handle power up to 120 watts at 8 ohms. Though I would recommend not to put the volume at max level.
