  • Owner’s manual
Engineered to serve as the complete home theater loudspeaker package, the HKTS 20BQ system integrates high-performance 5.1-channel speakers – front and rear satellites, plus a center loudspeaker – with a subwoofer in one sophisticated offering. The combination of dual-driver, center-channel speakers for replaying distinct movie dialogue, powerful satellites that envelop you in all the high energy of the best entertainment and a powered sub for low-frequency thrills makes this speaker system more than equal to handling the sonic excitement of Hollywood blockbusters and your favorite musical offerings. Constant-directivity waveguides fitted to the satellite speakers’ soft-dome tweeters decrease their directivity at high frequencies to produce a wide stereo image across a large listening area. The system looks elegant as well; the speakers’ black finish and streamlined structures will fit into any interior design. And it’s flexible; you can use HTFS 3/E floor stands to place the speakers at ear height and add additional speakers to change the system from 5.1 channels to 7.1. This six-piece system provides a best-in-class cinema experience while elevating 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 20BQ 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.
  • Four two-way, 120W satellite speakers
    Four voice-matched satellite speakers with a single 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 3/4-inch (19-millimeter), high-frequency dome tweeters produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. You can place these video-shielded speakers near your TV without causing magnetic interference.
  • Voice-matched, 120W dual-driver center speaker
    The HKTS 20BQ’s center-channel speaker features tandem 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and a 3/4-inch (19-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeter for clear, precise dialogue from movies, TV shows or other media created for a multichannel sound system. Constant-directivity waveguides decrease the tweeter’s directivity at high frequencies. The result is a wide stereo image across a large listening area.
  • Powerful, 200W down-firing subwoofer
    The HKTS 20BQ’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. The subwoofer lends an impressive richness and credibility to your home theater experience.
  • Stunning, décor-complementing modern design
    The HKTS 20BQ 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 20BQ’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 subwoofer 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 20BQ’s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV. Now, whether you are watching a traditional CRT or a flat-panel TV, you can continue watching undisturbed.
  • LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector
    The HKTS 20BQ 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 better low-end performance.
  • Compatible with HTFS 3/E floor stands
    If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, optional HTFS 3/E floor stands (sold separately) set the HKTS 20BQ satellite speakers at the ideal ear-level listening position. The aluminum-extrusion columns, which also include a self-contained wire-management system, will elegantly complement virtually any décor.
  • 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 20BQ system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing sound Just got these in and WOW! Got them on sale for 220.00 way more than I expected for that price. Sub is tight and the staging is perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing The receiver worked for a couple of weeks but has now developed a condition wherein, when the receiver is powered up, it does not output any sound to the speakers. Turning it off and on a few times addresses the issue, but it has been happening with increasing frequency. Also, if I let it sit for a few minutes in its "silent" mode, it seems to fix itself eventually. Not the kind of behavior I expect from a Harmon Kardon product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound, good size. Base is awesome... These are really great speakers, and they really are crystal clear paired with my Denon 7.2 recieved. I only use 5.1, but that's really all I need right now. My only critique are the mounts. I found them difficult to deal with and would prefer just a simple one or two hole mounting system.
Date published: 2016-08-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy them if they are below 200$ They are great sub is better then expected. Not too much of that theater sub so I bought a bigger sub on the side for 5.2 system

Does this need a separate receiver

Asked by: prat
The HKTS20 is a passive speaker system with a powered subwoofer. It must be connected to a surround sound receiver in order to function.
