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.
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.
Powerful, 60-watt, down-firing subwoofer
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.
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.
