Product Description

Product Description

It is a 5.1 speaker system which can be expanded to 7.1 with the optional HKS 6 Harman Kardon surroung speakers. The system uses a 3/4" tweeter for great high frequency performance.

The subwoofer automaticaly senses when a signal is present and turns on at that time.

High-performance satellites and a powerful subwoofer look as good as they sound.
Striking Design, Affordable High Performance
Featuring an eye-catching high-gloss-black finish and a sleek design, the HKTS 15 would be a stunning centerpiece of any home theater system based on looks alone. But the HKTS 15 sounds even better than it looks. Using advanced speaker technology and featuring a powered subwoofer that will rattle your walls, the HKTS 15 will deliver an exciting and realistic theater experience in most moderate-sized rooms. It's the perfect system for stepping up your home theater experience from your television's speakers or a typical home theater in a box. And have you just taken the Blu-ray plunge? If so, the HKTS 15 delivers an incredible sound experience from today's latest high-definition sources like Blu-ray. And the HKTS 15 can integrate into nearly any décor. All the hardware for bracketing the speakers on the wall is included. Don't want to hang the speakers on your wall? Optional black speaker stands are available (HTFS 2); they blend into the satellite speakers for a sleek, seamless look. The HKTS 15 even gives you the ability to build toward an affordable 7.1 home theater. Add another pair of the optional satellite speakers (HKS 6), and that 7.1-channel home theater is just a step away.

Advanced Technology
To deliver exceptional sound quality, the HKTS 15's satellites and subwoofer have gone through Harman's world-class engineering and design process, resulting in the use of advanced technology that delivers high performance and tremendous value.



HKTS 15 satellites deliver smooth sound for an engaging music and movie experience. View larger
Unlike many other entry-level satellite speaker systems, the HKTS 15 is built for high performance. All five speakers use the same driver material to provide a smooth, consistent sound field that sounds incredibly realistic and natural. Each satellite is a 2-way design, featuring a 3/4" metal-dome tweeter. The metal-dome tweeter is strong but lightweight, allowing it to reproduce high frequencies with detail, accuracy and clarity. Joining the tweeter is a 3-1/2" midrange driver, which delivers increased mid-bass response and smooth vocals. Dual mid-range drivers on the center speaker offer additional richness and clarity for for movie dialog.

The HKTS15 subwoofer delivers tight impactful bass in an elegant design. View larger


No high-performance home theater would be complete without a powered subwoofer. To deliver deep, substantial bass, the HKTS 15 uses a rigid 10" woofer powered by a powerful 100-watt amplifier. The woofer's rigid design allows it to move, while still hold its shape without bending or distorting. This results in high excursion with minimal distortion, and a home theater experience that you just don't hear but feel.

Easy to set up.
Whether you're doing it yourself or a professional is doing it for you, the HKTS 15 is easy to wire. High-quality speaker connections on the back of each speaker allow for the use of "better" speaker wire. The powered subwoofer includes both a line-level (LFE) connection (for today's 5.1 and 7.1 surround receivers), and speaker-level connections for use with older receivers or stereo receivers. The HKTS 15's LFE input even has an "audio sense" circuit to turn itself off automatically when not in use. If you're using the included wall brackets, they attach effortlessly to the bottom of each satellite, and even allow rotation so you can precisely dial in the best speaker placement.

What's in the Box
Four 2-way satellites, One center speaker with dual 3 ½" mid-range drivers, 10", 100-watt subwoofer, speaker wire for all five speakers, 15' subwoofer cable, four wall mount brackets and a 15' mini plug cable to use with an external trigger

Loud, full, deep just like a much higher wattage sub.

I'm very satisfied with this system. Spent a couple of weeks searching electronics stores and the internet. Was a little leery because I couldn't view the system in real-life before purchase, but have no regrets. Rocks my world with plenty of power to spare, and the box contained EVERYTHING to hook it up. One drawback: The mounting brackets for the satellite speakers have no adjustment for tilt and are designed for the speakers to rest on top. You may have to pop for speaker stands or dream something up to aim them at the listeners position. A minor imposition once you have a chance to hear them.

The nifty looking woofer, bought with the HKTS-15 speaker system plus AVR-15 series amp, started making gurbling sounds 1 year into use. Called Harman and was told where to take the unit for warranty repair. My warranty said two years on speakers, 1 year on amplifiers. After much delay, the authorized shop said the problem was the amp inside the woofer box and HK would not honor my written warranty. No distinction was noted anywhere on any Harman paperwork - none. Buyer beware!

I was looking for reasonably priced surround sound speakers to pair with my Sony Bravia TV and Sony STR-DG520 A/V receiver. I chose these without doing my due diligence ( listening to them) and am very pleased, so far, with my purchase. Obviously if you are looking at these speakers you should do some more research than I did but even if you dont I think you will be happy. They sound good and look good. One issue is that the powered subwoofer is much larger than I anticipated.

I had this speaker system for about 2 months now and I'm very happy with it. I currently have it hooked up to my AVR 247 and sounds very good. Out of the box, the satellites were a bit bigger than I thought it would be (not that it's a bad thing). The sub could have more bass but it's enough considering the size of my bedroom. Perhaps I'll upgrade with some bigger fronts in the future but for the time being, i'm totally rocking it. it even looks good, too.

Ordered via Amazon. Excellent delivery service. Bought after a few weeks of research looking for smaller sized home theatre speaker system at value price but excellent sound. Very satisfied with purchase. Sound is excellent for price and glad I did not spend more. Like other reviews I read, was surprised at size of subwoofer and ended up having to move it to another corner of the room and do more wiring than planned.
Made 4 stars instead of 5 because speaker mounts only allow allow for rotation from right to left. I figured I could just buy better wall mounts but because speakers require mounting from the bottom, I was unable to find any wall mounts that would work with this non-standard location of the screw placement (these are bottom instead of backside). However, best sound (for rear speakers) in my room setup seems to be when they are pointed directly across the room from each other, so I really did not have a need for better mounts anyway.
Overall really like the sharp style and great sound from such a small set of speakers. The kit comes with plenty of long speaker wires but note you should get speaker wire designed for in wall use to be to code. I ordered all my wire and accessories such as banana plugs and wall plates from mycablemart.com as I thought their prices were good, but there are lots of places to order this stuff. I would recommend this purchase for the value-oriented consumer looking for good home theatre sound and a fair price assuming you couple it with a good AV receiver (I coupled this with an Onkyo TX-SR606).

I just installed my second surround sound system in my house. I previously had put 5.1 in my bedroom and just this weekend put 7.1 in the family room. Both are powered by the Harman Kardon AVR-254 (which is awesome) Harman Kardon AVR-254 7x50W 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver with HDMI 1.3a Repeater. I bought this HKTS-15 speaker package because I wanted to have a matched system and thought that Harman speakers with Harman AVR should work well. Boy does it ever.

First of all, I was skeptical that the tiny center channel speaker (dual 3.5 inch drivers) would be adequate. My other system uses the terrific Sony SS-CN5000 Dual 5.25 inch Center Channel Speaker Sony SS-CN5000 Dual 5.25" Center Channel Speaker and it really has great sound. But I have to say, the dialog out of the center channel with the HKTS 15 system sounds even better. We used just TV speakers before, where the dialog was often so muddy that we had to have the volume way up just to figure out what people were saying. Now the dialog is crystal clear and doesn't have to be so loud. Our AVR (and I am sure all of them do this) allows us to set volume levels on individual speakers so we set the center channel exactly where we wanted it for best dialog reproduction. Do not think this speaker is too small to give you the sound you are looking for.

Secondly, the subwoofer is plenty powerful enough to shake things up. I watched the Balrog scene from LOTR I and the bass was wild.
