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 144.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feels like they are twice as big as they are These things really brought a lot of sound on a very small footprint. The sound that comes out of them is so detailed in the bass is subtle yet has a kick

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Speakers Bought these speakers when they were at sale. The speakers work awesome. Every little tiny sound is crystal clear. Using these with a Yamaha Receiver. I highly recommend these speakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent speakers Real home theater sound. Don't be fooled by the size of the speakers. They put out serious sound. The subwoofer emits deep clean bass. I have these paired with a Denon 5.1 receiver and it's more than enough for my medium sized room. Mid and highs are very clear. The center channel is loud and clear. No issue with dialog. Great speakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice clean sound with wonderful imaging I bought (2) two sets of these speakers as part of a larger home theater system. I am running them on a Harman-Kardon 1710 S which is a 7.2 system with 100w power channel. Sadly they don't sell a matching Sub Woofer, so I had to get the two systems. I am not disappointed because even at a quarter level the bass rocks my theater. I am also running a pair of JBL Studio 590. But alone on their own they still sound phenomenal!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent sound I bought these speakers just a couple of weeks ago to replace the infinity speakers I had that were stolen when my home was burglarized. I wasn't able to set them up until two days ago, but so far they are the best speakers I've ever owned. Crisp and clear amazing sound.
