Hi. I just bought two citation 1 speakers, and one citation bar, my question is simple, can i use the bar and two citation 1 speakers as (satellit) speakers when you are watching for example a movie?

Asked by: Mathias s
Two&nbsp;HK Citation One speakers can be hooked up with the Citation Bar to simulate a 5.0 channel experience, assuming the movie can send out the corresponding signal.

Will two cititation one speakers grouped together provide true stereo sound as announced in product slide 7 or only play two mono sources? Research your answer carefully, you will be held accountable if I buy a pair and it turns out they dont play stereo

Asked by: Andbir
Same experience like PDAA. Paired as stereo but only dual mono as result. After mailing for two weeks with the support team the final answer was &quot;as long we cannot reproduce it, we cannot help&quot;. It's very disappointing.

Sometimes, at random it seems, it stops listening to my &quot;Hey/Ok Google command&quot;. My Google mini speaker that is in the other room reacts every time as I am trying to command the Citation. If I press mute/unmute mic it fixes the problem. Whats wrong?

Does it recognize individual voice or it response to every voice command?&nbsp;

Asked by: TBCX
It responds to everyone and you can set it up to recognize an individual voice though the Google home app so account related requests would require that individual's voice.

Hello.. Is the speaker portable? We thought we charged it the whole night but the speaker turned off once we plug the cable off

Asked by: Pudji Perk
It is not a portable speaker. It's meant to be plugged in at all times, it does not have an internal battery
