Hello there,&nbsp; When aiming to build a home cinema, is a subwoofer from the citation series necessary to accomplish this point? Because I read that each Tower is being powered by a subwoofer with a speaker diameter of 20cm. Are only the towers enough?

Asked by: Amar S
Hi Amar, In order to use the Citation Towers for a Home Cinema, you will need the HK Citation Bar first. This can be used to pair the towers with and create a 3.0 setup. You can later add the Citation Subwoofer as well, which can only be paired with the Bar as well ( not with the towers ). The Citation towers as a pure stereo speaker pair pack a good punch in terms of bass output, so it really will be up to your own taste/preference. The good thing about the Citation series is that it's very modular, so you don't have to buy everything at once

Will these speakers be able to stream and sync the audio with the video from chromecast plugged into a television out of the box (services like netflix)? Or will it only be limited to chromecast audio streaming only (services like pandora or spotify)

Asked by: jazzy jeff
When used as a stand alone speaker system, the TOWER will only work with Google Home and BT. The BAR or ADAPT is needed in order to utilize audio/video features.

When building a home theater with these towers, are you required to use the citation soundbar for the center speakers? Or can you use some of the other citation speakers for the center channel?

Asked by: jazzy jeff
It's required to use the citation soundbar as the center speakers.

So the towers can not be used as TV/movie speakers unless you also have the soundbar? By themselves they can only be used for Bluetooth audio and google assistance?
