Innovative Design for High-End Performance

Exceptional sound quality takes advanced engineering. To deliver an extraordinary listening experience for today’s high-definition entertainment, the HKTS 30BQ satellites and subwoofer have gone through Harman Kardon’s world-class engineering and design process. This process gives the HKTS 30BQ system the high-end performance of a premium system while keeping it affordable, unlike many other satellite speaker systems-–including ones costing far more.

Soft-dome Tweeters Reproduce High-End Detail with Clarity
Each satellite is a two-way design, featuring a 3/4" soft-dome tweeter. The soft-dome tweeter is strong but lightweight enough to reproduce high frequencies with detail, accuracy and clarity. The tweeter rests in Harman Kardon’s advanced Constant Directivity waveguide. Simply put, this waveguide ensures an incredibly wide stereo image over a large listening area.

Midrange Drivers Serve Up Vocals with Realism
For increased midbass response and smooth, realistic-sounding vocals, each satellite employs dual 3-1/2" midrange drivers that are incredibly rigid. For clear, distinct movie dialogue, the HKTS 30BQ center channel uses the same dual 3-1/2" midrange drivers that the other satellites use. This keeps the soundfield consistent and smooth for a much more natural listening experience.

8" Powered Subwoofer Delivers Bass with Authority
No high-performance home theater would be complete without a powered subwoofer. The HKTS 30BQ uses a rigid, high-excursion, 8" woofer powered by a muscular, 200-watt amplifier. The woofer’s rigid design allows it to move but hold its shape without bending. And since the woofer is relatively small, the HKTS 30BQ can deliver deep, substantial bass from a sleek, compact cabinet. If you want to enhance the HTKS 30BQ’s subwoofer performance to your preference, a phase switch, level control and bass boost are all included. The result is maximum movement with minimum distortion, and a home theater experience that you don’t just hear but also feel.

connectors and tabletop stands

Even Installation Is Simple

Whether you’re doing it yourself or a professional is doing it for you, the HKTS 30BQ is easy to set up and wire. High-quality, gold plated connections on the back of each speaker allow you to use high-performance speaker wire while the powered subwoofer uses a line-level LFE (low-frequency effects) connection to attach easily to today’s 5.1-channel and 7.1-channel surround-sound receivers. The LFE input even has an “audio sense” circuit to turn itself off automatically when you’re not using it. And if you’re using the included wall brackets, you can attach them effortlessly to the bottom of each satellite and rotate them so you can precisely dial in the best speaker placement.

What's in the Box
Four HKTS 30BQ satellites, One HKTS 30BQ center, One HKTS 30BQ subwoofer, wall mount brackets for all five speakers, and speaker wire

Pros:
1. Small and stylish
2. build quality is good
3. comes with wall mount
4. comes with pre-cut speaker wire and can be installed right away
5. high frequency performs very well.
6. The mid is crisp and clear, so you can hear the dialogue very easily.
7. They are good for movie with a lot of conversation.

Cons:
1. It cannot use banana plug, bare wire connection is the only choice you got. So the wire will get oxidized and you need to cut the wire every half year.
2. Completely lack of 120-200 Hz frequency. Music performance is very bad and not even acceptable. No matter you are listening to jazz, pop rock or classical, they all become unreal.
3. The subwoofer cannot covered a lot of frequency. It cannot cover the 100-200 hz where the sat speaker is missing and it cannot go real low.
4. It does not perform well when movie got lot of explosion scene.

Conclusion:
This speaker set is good if your space is limited. They are small and can fit in the living room very well. Their sleek and stylish design look very good with LCD TV. Especially, they are a good fit if you are living in condo/apartment as its apparently weak subwoofer would not disturb your neighbor.

Depend on your movie preference, if you like watching drama and romantic movie. This speaker set is good for you. But if you watch a lot action movie, you'd better look for other speaker set.

Also, never use this set for music, you will be greatly disappointed. If you want to listen to music, just get a $200 mini hifi set. Any entry level mini hifi set can beat this speaker set easily.

This speaker sound is quite bright, so it's better to be used with warm receiver like Denon and Harman Kardon to balance it out. Onkyo and Pioneer will be too bright for this speaker set.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Summary: These speakers are all about the design. They look faaaabulous. Sound is decent, but I would find it hard to justify them as an upgrade to existing speakers based on sound quality alone.

I was very excited to have the opportunity to review these speakers. Our stereo / video setup is a 10+ year old Sony combination surround sound system with tower front speakers, small rear and center satellites, and a sub. Very decent mainstream quality sound emphasizing power over quality.

This system has four satellites with a very small footprint (smaller if you wall mount of course) and a matching center channel. Subwoofer is pretty standard milk crate sized. All executed in a beautiful high gloss piano black. I was excited to think that I'd recover some valuable real estate with this system.

Upon opening the box I was greeted with very carefully wrapped contents. While perhaps not the most environmentally friendly, the multiple layers made sure these little jewels were in perfect condition, despite a large ding on the outside of the box, courtesy of UPS. These speakers look even better in person! Very high quality construction.

Upon swapping them out with my existing speakers (I didn't use their enclosed wires, I have 12awg oxygen free flat copper to all the existing speakers) I ran a quick sound test. Very decent, but not knocking my socks off. I played "Mars" from Holst (The Planets) then Michael Murray's Telarc recording of Toccata and Fugue in D-Minor. Both were decent, with Mars coming in a little lighter than I'm used to in the midrange. Will need to tweak the eq settings.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We've had this sound system for a while and love it.

Aesthetically: These are very pleasing to the eye. The speakers don't stick out in our decor and the subwoofer is compact enough to be out of the way. There's also no fabric on any of the pieces, including the sub woofer, which is a huge plus for people with kids. (My kids ripped our last sub woofer's fabric). The sound comes out the bottom of the sub woofer also, which is also very nice. I couldn't find a place where my kids could attempt to shove coins either. It's very kid-proof!

Soundwise: The sound system has really enhanced movies. We watched 'Star Trek' (Chris Pine version) and it sounded so much better and made the crucial fight scene at the beginning of the movie more realistic. It sounded like we were in the movie. It was almost like being in the theater.

It comes with wall mount brackets, which is what we plan to do. Once we get the longer speaker wire, we'll do the final install with them being mounted to the wall. They can sit on stands though if that suits your needs.

My husband was the one who did the install and he said it was easy as pie. We also bought our stereo receiver from Amazon to use this system.

The only negative I would mention was the length of the speaker wires. We'll have to buy longer wires because of the size of our room. However, I have "great room", which means a really long living room area. I do think that for most people, the length of the wires wouldn't be an issue. If we wanted to leave them down on our end tables, we could probably skate. But we want to mount them on the wall, so we need the extra length.

Overall: This system rocks and we couldn't be happier.
