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 9 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 3/E 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 to fit into any décor. By delivering movie dialogue, music and effects in this high-quality fashion, the HKTS 9 ensures that you’ll have a best-in-class cinema experience while it elevates your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary.
Product Features:
  • Complete 5.1-channel home theater surround-sound system
    As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 9 has everything you need – including satellite bases, wall-mounting hardware and all necessary cables – in one box. And by including removable shelf-mount stands and wall-mount brackets for the satellite and center speakers, the system offers you great flexibility for installing the speakers in different locations.
  • Voice-matched, two-way, 80W satellite speakers
    The HKTS 9 system’s five voice-matched satellite speakers with 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 1/2-inch (13 millimeter) high-frequency tweeters are engineered to work together to produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. You can even place these video-shielded speakers near your TV without causing magnetic interference.
  • Powerful, down-firing, 200W subwoofer
    The HKTS 9’s 200-watt down-firing subwoofer with an 8-inch (200-millimeter) driver offers deep, authoritative low-frequency realism that lends a richness and believability to whatever imagery you’re seeing on screen – while remaining surprisingly unimposing off screen. While viewing an action film, you hear every crash, bang and boom the soundtrack has to offer.
  • Stunning modern design
    The HKTS 9 system represents a décor-friendly complement to any entertainment center or home theater. Its contemporary styling incorporates glossy, black accents, polished surfaces and elegant symmetry – elements that are clearly part of the rich Harman Kardon® design heritage. The system’s compact, unobtrusive dimensions offer virtually unlimited installation options.
  • Bass-boost controls and phase switches for subwoofer
    Controls on the HKTS 9’s 200-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Bass-boost and phase switches also allow you to optimize the subwoofer’s performance, depending upon where you place the speakers. A subwoofer properly in phase with the satellite speakers generates clear, and lifelike sounds for instruments such as drums, piano and plucked strings.
  • Magnetically shielded loudspeaker components
    Unshielded loudspeaker components can upset the magnetic field in a conventional TV, resulting in visible color shifts and possible long-term damage. But the HKTS 9’s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV.
  • LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector
    The HKTS 9 includes an LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector that bypasses the subwoofer’s internal, low-pass crossover. As a result, you can use a receiver/processor’s dedicated subwoofer output to provide enhanced low-end performance.
  • Upgradable to 7.1 channels
    If you want to move beyond the all-encompassing power of this 5.1-channel surround-sound system, you can easily add a pair of front-height or rear-channel surround loudspeakers – and hence unleash the 7.1-channel capability of your HKTS 9 system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.
  • Upgradable to 7.1 channels
    If you want to move beyond the all-encompassing power of this 5.1-channel surround-sound system, you can easily add a pair of front-height or rear-channel surround loudspeakers – and hence unleash the 7.1-channel capability of your HKTS 9BQ system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.
  • Energy-saving features
    To adhere to European guidelines, the HKTS 9BQ system uses low standby-power consumption – less than 1 watt – and includes a number of energy-efficient features. For example, an auto-power on/off function automatically controls the subwoofer in response to a relayed voltage or an audio input signal. (If the subwoofer receives no audio signal for 15 minutes, the subwoofer automatically shuts off.) By meeting such “green” standards, this speaker system keeps sound quality high – and your power bill low.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value These speakers are an excellent value for the high quality of the sound they produce. The adjustable range of the subwoofer is also excellent. I rated these speakers 5 stars...and I never give products 5 stars!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound! Very impressed with the quality/value I purchased this to replace a Bose 5.1 Lifestyle System. I did not have any experience with HK products but all the reviews were positive. I purchased this refurbished from HK and when I unpackaged it everything looked new! I hooked this up to a 5.1 Pioneer Receiver and wow was I impressed. This is perfect for watching movies or listening to music. The sound is crips and clear and the surround sound makes you feel like your at the movie theatre. The 200w Subwoofer is really powerful. Really pumps out the base. The complete package includes wire and wall mounts which makes it a very easy setup. Thanks Harmon Kardon! Looking to purchase another system for my family room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Budget very small GO Big with HKTS 9 this was the best buy of 2016 for me I would advise anyone on a small budget to buy these speakers at the price you can't go wrong

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Expect to pay more. I have always loved the sound of Harmon/Kardon. I bought this system for a great price around Christmas time and I was excited to set it up in my man cave. I got it really quick because it was free two day shipping. Once I got it, I immediately tried setting it up. Nowhere on the website does it say you need a receiver. So if you don't already have one, expect to have to buy one, and the ones that support 7.1 channel, the good ones at least, are no less than $600. So paying $600 for these speakers and then another $600+ for a receiver is ridiculous and they should tell you straight up what you are walking into. I'm only recommending it because of the sound it gives off. The sound is incredible and the bass booms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realistic sound I bought this a few weeks ago and am loving the clarity of sound. This is a great purchase for such a low price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound ! Very good sound and cool design... My living room is real now !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sounds I bought this product three weeks ago, due to illness just had the time to do installation which was cumbersome and difficult for a physically challenged person. There are too many mini steps and parts to contend with before you can complete the installation process and enjoy the wonderful sounds. I had repackaged the system to return it and a friend encouraged me to let him assist in the installation. It took the better part of three hours. It is very discouraging to waste so much time installing a brand name super product as yours. My recommendation: Please get your designers to design a simple but effective arm attachment for the speakers so they can be easily hung from a vertical wall or vaulted ceiling without all those various small parts and screws.

Will the satellite speakers attach to standard screw-mount speaker stands?

Asked by: Tiger
HKTS 9 can be mounted to the HTFS 2 speaker stands. If you are planning on installing onto other brand of speaker, it would depend on the whether or not HKTS 9’s dimensions are compatible with the mounting components.

Are the speakers wireless

Asked by: Lisa
No. The HKTS 9 is a wired passive speaker system with a powered sub. It must be connected to an audio/video surround sound receiver in order to function.

do i need AV receiver to connect it or I can connect with any DVD/bluray/TV directly? If I need AV receiver, please provide a specifications...

Asked by: Suresh MG
The HKTS 9 is a wired passive speaker system with a powered sub. It must be connected to an audio/video surround sound receiver in order to function. The satellite speakers and the center channel speaker of the HKTS 9 can handle and output up to 80 watts while the powered subwoofer can output up to 200W of power. Any one of our AVRs like the AVR 1610S will work with these speakers.
