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.

HKTS 16 is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 132.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t expect the world but good buy The speakers are great for 5.0 setup. Subwoofer is weak buts it’s only an 8 inch woofer so wasn’t expecting much. I have a 12 already that I’ll use. I went from high $ towers to these so movies are great music not so much. Again nothing that I wasn’t expecting. Biggest selling point was price. Would rather get rid of subwoofer and save the extra $.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LUSH SOUND & STUNNING DESIGN We’ve had an older Harman/Kardon home audio system for years. Our subwoofer gave out so I decided to look for a replacement and came across this incredible deal for the HKTS 16. It was compatible with our old HK AVR 330 receiver so it was a no-brainer. The sound quality is lush and the subwoofer design is stunning! It’s so much more compact than our previous model and it’s designed with legs so looks very sleek in the black finish. So HAPPY with this, received free 2 day shipping so got it just in time to gift the family for Christmas. Love HARMAN/KARDON!

will be speakers work great with the denon AVR-S530BT ? 

Asked by: hienpham
The HKTS 16 system would work fine with your Denon AVR-S530BT receiver.
Answered by: Steve S
Date published: 2018-02-16

Using the HKTS 16 with a Denon AVR-S530BT, what subwoofer cable do you recommend using to connect to the receiver? Only about 2ft away from each other.

Asked by: EthanC
The HKTS 16 system, the 20' (6m) combination LFE and trigger cable is included which can be connected to the PRE OUT of the receiver.

I thinking of buying this speaker. Do I need a receiver Or I can use as is it without the receiver?

Asked by: sara76
The HKTS 16 are wired speakers and would require a receiver in order for them to run.

I'm thinking f purchasing your HKTS 16, and have two Questions.... 1. Will this speakEr system work with the ONKYO HT-RC230? 2. And if so, will the rear speakers be able to work with the wireless ROCK FISH RF-WHTIB?

Asked by: Gman50
The Onkyo receiver and Rocketfish can definitely handle both setups with the HKTS 16. We did discover the specs of the speakers can handle the RocketFish; however, the Rocketfish will be grossly underpowered compared to your Onkyo. If you plan on cranking up the volume on your RocketFish with these speakers connected, this can cause distortion on the sound, which may eventually blow the speakers. If you do not plan on cranking it too much, it should be fine. If you just use the Onkyo receiver with its 90 W of power, you can play it loud on your speakers without issue.

Can rear speakers mountable on the ceiling?

Asked by: SriG
The HKTS 16 comes with its wall-mountable brackets for the satellite and center speakers. Please note that these are wall mounts, it would be possible but it may be difficult to install these speakers on the ceiling.
