Compact 5.1-channel home theater speaker system with dual-driver center channel, dome tweeters and 60-watt subwoofer. Designed to serve as a fully integrated home theater loudspeaker package, the HKTS 5 is a music and film fan’s dream system. Harman Kardon® engineers have crafted all of the system components to work together, resulting in a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance. Five voice-matched satellite loudspeakers with powerful midrange drivers and smooth-sounding dome tweeters for the front and surround channels are augmented with a lusty, down-firing subwoofer to ensure a fully balanced playback environment. The system’s carefully engineered crossovers help ensure smooth transitions between the satellite speakers’ high-frequency tweeters and midrange drivers. The system comes with a variety of cables and mounting brackets that help you place the speakers nearly anywhere you want. And you can expand the system even further by upgrading it to 7.1 channels and adding HTFS 2 floor stands. By elevating your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary, the HKTS 5 ensures that you’ll have a best-in-class cinema experience.
Product Features:
  • 10-80-watt suggested amplifier power range
    Harman Kardon engineers have designed the HKTS 5 loudspeakers to deliver robust sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 10- to 80-watt power amplifier, whether you are using it as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system
  • Four two-way, satellite speakers with dome tweeters
    The HKTS 5’s four voice-matched satellite speakers with single 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 1-inch (25-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeters produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. A full-function crossover helps ensure smooth transitions between the satellite speakers’ midrange drivers and tweeters.
  • Voice-matched, 25- to 60-watt dual-driver center speaker
    The center-channel speaker of the HKTS 5 features a pair of 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and a 1-inch (25 millimeter) dome tweeter for clear, precise dialogue from movies, TV shows and other media created for a multichannel sound system. The system produces a wide stereo image across a large listening area.
  • Powerful, 60-watt, down-firing subwoofer
    The HKTS 5’s 60-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.
  • Complete 5.1-channel home theater surround-sound system
    As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 5 has everything you need – including satellite bases, wall-mounting hardware and all necessary cables – in one box. And by including 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.
  • Stunning, décor-complementing modern design
    The HKTS 5 represents a décor-friendly complement to any entertainment center or home theater. Its contemporary styling incorporates glossy 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.
  • Volume controls and phase switches for subwoofer
    Controls on the HKTS 5’s 60-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Volume control and phase switches 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.
  • Compatible with HTFS 2 floor stands
    If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, optional HTFS 2 floor stands (sold separately) can set the HKTS 5 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 5.1 channels of the HKTS 5 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 system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage than 5.1 channels.
  • Energy-saving features
    To adhere to European guidelines, the HKTS 5 system uses low standby-power consumption – less than 0.5 watt – and includes a number of energy-efficient features. For example, an auto-power on/off function automatically controls the subwoofer in response to a relayed voltage or an audio-input signal. (If the subwoofer doesn’t receive an audio signal for 15 minutes, it automatically shuts off.) By meeting such “green” standards, this speaker system keeps sound quality high – and your power bill low.

HKTS 5 is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed with sales team!!! The speakers are acceptable. The same week I bought the system, the next higher system went on sale for lower than I paid. When brought this up in e-mails there was No response. You would think an aggressive sales team would have allowed an upgrade to obtain a loyal customer. Audio is a large part of my life, and I have thousands in equipment. At this point, I am very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Kotiteatteri jytisee Ostin tämän paketin kolmisen vuotta sitten uuteen pienehköön kotiteatteriini, jossa on vahvistimena Pioneer VSX-922. Kuvittelin tämän paketin toimivan lähinnä elokuvakäytössä, mutta musiikkikin jytisee näiden kautta oikein mainiosti. Olen luopunut ajatuksesta ostaa erilliset kaiuttimet pelkästään musiikin kuuntelua varten.

Does this need an AVR? The description calls it a 'complete system' and 'all you will need' but also recommends an AVReceiver as well.

Asked by: Rarebit
Hi Thank you for your question! Yes you are right - This speaker set doesn't play by it self and it will need amplification. An excellent choice for this speaker set would be Harman/Kardon AVR 161 or 171. Have a nice day.

Hallo, ich habe ein HKTS5 + AVR161. Gekauft 2013 über Amazon. Problem: nach zunächst normalem Betrieb beginnt die weisse LED am HKTS 160Sub-Woofer nach einigen Minuten zu blinken und der Sub-Woofer gibt nichts mehr von sich. Was bedeutet blinkende LED ?
