From the Manufacturer

Harman Kardon HKTS 20BQ
Elegance and Performance in an Affordable Home Theater Speaker Package

Designed to Entertain for more than 50 Years
Using extraordinary industrial design, innovative technologies and meticulous engineering, Harman Kardon audio experts have created products to deliver the ultimate listening experience for more than 50 years. From the world’s very first high-fidelity receiver in 1954 to today's high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth amplifier design, the Harman Kardon brand has led the way to the finest audio and video quality possible. With a complete package of performance, design, flexibility and ease of use, Harman Kardon products are perfect for all the sounds and visuals that modern, high-definition digital content has to offer. So treat yourself to the ultimate at-home listening experience--one that only a Harman Kardon system can provide.


The HKTS 20BQ speaker system brings performance
and elegance to any room.

Elegant Performance

Prepared to be stunned. Featuring an elegant, high-gloss black finish and a new, sleek satellite and subwoofer, Harman Kardon’s latest home theater loudspeaker systems are the ultimate expression of performance and design. Based on looks alone, the new HKTS 20BQ would be a stunning centerpiece for any high-performance home theater. Luckily, Harman Kardon’s passion for great audio has made the new HKTS 20BQ sound even better than it looks. And thanks to advanced engineering and design, it delivers audio far larger than its size would lead you to believe. Paired with a high-performance receiver, the HKTS 20BQ is an elegant step-up solution to your television speakers or a typical “home theater in a box.” In addition, its beautiful design fits into nearly any décor. Use the included wall brackets to hang the satellites from the wall as part of your interior design. Don’t want to hang the speakers on the wall? Optional black speaker stands (HTFS 3) are available to bring your HKTS 20BQ satellites to perfect ear height. Breathtaking looks and stunning sound-–you get it all with the new Harman Kardon HKTS 20BQ loudspeaker system.

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.





Advanced driver technology delivers rich, full sound

Soft-dome Tweeters Reproduce Accurate, Detailed High Frequencies
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.

The HKTS 20BQ includes high quality
connectors and tabletop stands.

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.

What's in the Box
Four HKTS 20BQ satellites, One HKTS 20BQ center, One HKTS 20BQ subwoofer, wall mount brackets for all five speakers, and speaker wire

Let me start out by saying that all my previous systems were Hbid all in one Sony crap factories. I'm actually a TV and radio engineer, but I've never been willing to spend the money on my own consumer grade audio equipment....now I'm glad I did. This system is incredible. I got it with the Yamaha 667 receiver, so basically the receiver was free; too good to pass up.

Pros:
Amazing sound...it's like I'm in a movie theater
Quality design; speakers are well built and heavy and the shine on them is great. sub looks like a piece of art
Great mounts and 16 gauge cable included.
Packaging was immaculate; reminded me of Apple products
Professional gold connectors on rear of speaker; high quality
powered sub with adjustable levels

Cons:
Cable for surround is a little short (typical length for surround cable included with most systems)
Speaker set is really expensive if you don't get the deal with a receiver

This set comes with small speaker stands and mounts if you choose to mount the speakers. I mounted all of mine and they sound amazing. If you want to mount the speakers, you'll need two screws for each speaker and drywall studs if that's where you're mounting them. The speaker cable is more than enough for the fronts and about 33 feet for the surround.

I'm breaking these in with "Dark Night" right now and it sounds incredible. I'm still playing with the settings for my receiver, but it seems like little adjustment is needed if you don't want to. I turned up the surround a little cuz I like a louder surround effect.

If the deal to get these with the Yamaha receiver is still available, I highly recommend this purchase.

This is one beautiful Home Theater speaker system. After mounting the speakers and hooking up to our Onkyo rcvr we had surround sound that you wouldn't beleive. We had a Bose system that was about 7 years old and did not compare to these HK speakers. My wife has a hearing problem and with this system she could tell the difference in the clarity of voices.

Got them back in July 2011 but waited for some time before I post review, wanted to complete all my experiments and would say they have met my expectations, have them hooked up with Pioneer 820-VSX 5.1

First of all what I use them for, have rated them for what ever I used them so far for:

1. Watching movies - 5 star
2. Music listening - 4 star
3. Playing games on Ps3 - 5 star

I would say that they are best choice if you are looking for something in budget below 1000 $.

We recently decided to jump in and join the "surround sound/home theater" club and had asked a friend who is fairly well-versed in the different brands and quality out there. Based on our price range and needs, this was one of the speaker sets he had recommended, along with the Yamaha RX-V667 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver (Black) receiver. Then, not 2 days later, I saw that Amazon was running a deal where if you bought those 2 particular items together, you only payed 2/3rds of the cost (basically, we essentially payed full price for the speakers and got the receiver for free!). I couldn't believe that it had been the same 2 items we had been looking at, so we were thrilled to see the sale on the items "lumped together". Setup was relatively simple (just read the manual) and with a little help from our friend, we were able to get our whole system all set up in just a few hours. We have been very pleased with the sound quality of these speakers, and the only thing that could make them better would be if it came with even just 2 wall mounts. The speakers seem to have very "custom" bases, so we are going to have to research if there is a specific wall mounting system we have to use for them. I will update this when we find out.

I had been going back and forth with purchasing these speakers, but when I saw it was paired with a Yamaha Amp, I couldn't say no. I essentially got the amp for free. After anticipating its arrival, and checking the tracking details every hour it had finally arrived.

The speakers were sealed in a very protective packaging. Wrapped in foam and cloth, the speakers had a certain sparkle to them. the sub-woofer also came in its own separate box.

Setting these bad boys up was a breeze. The speaker wires were perfect length, maybe a bit long, but I have a smaller living room.

Now the sound. I hooked these up to my new Yamaha amp (that i got for free!), and these guys shock my entire apartment. I took the advice to test these with Dark Knight, and I was simply amazed.

Overall, these speakers paired with the Yamaha 667 Amp are an amazing deal. I was skeptical spending $700 on a sound system, but it was the best $700 I have spent

These speakers are amazing! Everything about this speaker set is high quality even the packaging was very professional. Sound quality is crisp and clear. Set up is very easy even if you want to mount them on the wall. Takes you only about 20 min to mount them. I searched and searched for speakers that are of high quality and I finally chose these and I am very pleased. Don't waste your time looking for other speakers because these are the ones you want.
