The Sound for Today's High Definition World
Exceptional sound quality takes advanced engineering. To deliver an extraordinary listening experience for today’s high-definition entertainment, the HKTS 20BQ satellites and subwoofer have gone through Harman Kardon’s world-class engineering and design process. This process gives the HKTS 20BQ system the performance of a system costing many times its price, unlike many other entry-level satellite speaker systems.
Soft-dome Tweeters Reproduce Accurate, Detailed High Frequencies
| | Advanced driver technology delivers rich, full sound
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 a 3-1/2" midrange driver that is both strong and lightweight. In fact, for the most clear and distinct movie dialogue, the HKTS 20BQ actually uses dual 3-1/2" midrange drivers for the center channel. 8" Powered Subwoofer Rattles the Room
No high-performance home theater would be complete without a powered subwoofer. The HKTS 20BQ 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 20BQ can deliver deep, substantial bass from a sleek, compact cabinet. If you want to enhance the HTKS 20BQ’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.

Even Installation Is Simple
Whether you’re doing it yourself or a professional is doing it for you, the HKTS 20BQ 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.
