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 Great system Exactly what I was looking for. Set up was quick and simple. Looking forward for years of enjoyment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sounds Great I use these for a 5.1 setup in our master bedroom paired with a Harman Kardon AVR1510. Sound is large with depth, bass, and clarity even at high volumes. Small size is convenient for a bedroom setting but sound is not compromised at all. Great value and performance for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loud, quality features I jamming my friends, their equipment is like meaowing a cat next to the roar of my Tiger.

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 $.

is there a way to connect my phone to the sound system so I can play music or is it only compatible with tvs and systems such as this?

Asked by: marq b
Hello. The HKTS 16 needs to be connected to a receiver for it to work. If your receiver has an AUXILIARY IN port on it, you can connect your phone to it using a 3.5mm aux cable. If not, you can purchase a Harman/Kardon BTA-10 or an External Bluetooth Adapter and plug it into your receiver so that it'll have Bluetooth capability and your phone can connect to the receiver this way. One other way, which can be a bit complicated, is if you have a Smart TV that has a Bluetooth receiver, you can pair your phone to your TV. You'll have to change the Audio Output of your TV to External Speakers or Audio Out/ HDMI or Audio Out/Optical. Then you'l have to choose your TV as the input source on the receiver so that the audio would come out of the HKTS 16. Should you have further concerns or questions regarding this matter, please feel free to contact us directly by submitting a case request at https://www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Audio Specialist Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Hi I have Pre wiring in my media room for 5.1. I have to mount these speaker in ceiling. Is it possible to mount? If yes what ceiling mount bracket is recommended

Asked by: Manu2109
Yes, it is possible to mount; however, we do not have a recommended ceiling mount bracket. Ceiling mounting would have to be done through a third party or custom mounting system.

Hello, Are the HKTS 16 speakers compatible with the Onkyo TX-NR676 7.2 Channel Network A/V Receiver?

Asked by: pipe
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.

Asked by: apataks
Yes, The HKTS 16 can handle 10 ~ 120 watts at 8 ohms and the Onkyo TX-NR575 sends out 80 watts per channel at 8 ohms. So there should be no problem with the speaker and the receiver setup.
