5.1-channel home theater surround-sound system
As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 30BQ has everything you need – including satellite bases, wall-mounting hardware and all necessary cables – in one box. And by including removable 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.
Four two-way, 120W satellite speakers
Four voice-matched satellite speakers with tandem 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and 3/4-inch (19-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeters produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. You can place these video-shielded speakers near your TV without causing magnetic interference.
Voice-matched, 120W dual-driver center speaker
The HKTS 30BQ’s center-channel speaker features tandem 3-inch (75-millimeter) midrange drivers and a 3/4-inch (19-millimeter) high-frequency dome tweeter for clear, precise dialogue from movies, TV shows or other media created for a multichannel sound system. Constant-directivity waveguides decrease the tweeter’s directivity at high frequencies. The result is a wide stereo image across a large listening area.
Powerful, 200W down-firing subwoofer
The HKTS 30BQ’s 200-watt, down-firing subwoofer with an 8-inch (200-millimeter) driver offers deep, authoritative low-frequency realism that lends 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.
Stunning, décor-complementing modern design
The HKTS 30BQ represents a décor-friendly complement to any entertainment center or home theater. Its contemporary styling incorporates glossy, black 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.
Bass-boost controls and phase switches for subwoofer
Controls on the HKTS 30BQ’s 200-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Bass-boost and phase switches also 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.
Magnetically shielded loudspeaker components
Unshielded loudspeaker components can upset the magnetic field in a conventional TV, resulting in visible color shifts and possible long-term damage. But the HKTS 30BQ’s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV.
LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector
The HKTS 30BQ includes an LFE (low-frequency effects) input connector that bypasses the subwoofer’s internal low-pass crossover. As a result, you can use a receiver/processor’s dedicated subwoofer output to provide enhanced low-end performance.
Compatible with the HTFS 3/E floor stands
If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, optional HTFS 3/E floor stands (sold separately) set the HKTS 30BQ 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 all-encompassing power of this 5.1-channel 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 HKTS 30BQ system. The 7.1 surround-sound format elevates the impact of your entertainment experience with a richer, more thorough soundstage.
Engineered to serve as the complete home theater loudspeaker package, the HKTS 30BQ integrates high-performance 5.1-channel speakers – four front and rear satellites, plus a center loudspeaker – with a subwoofer in a single sophisticated offering. The combination of a dual-driver, center-channel speaker for replaying distinct movie dialogue, powerful dual-driver satellites that envelop you in all the high-energy action and a powered sub for low-frequency thrills makes this speaker system more than equal to handing the sonic excitement of Hollywood blockbusters and your favorite musical offerings. Constant-directivity waveguides fitted to the satellite speakers’ soft-dome tweeters decrease their directivity at high frequencies to produce a wide stereo image across a large listening area. Bass-boost and phase controls on the subwoofer allow you to adjust low-frequency sounds. And if that’s not enough, you can add more: You can put the speakers at ear height with the aid of the optional (and very attractive) HTFS 3/E floor stands and add two speakers to expand your home theater to a 7.1-channel system. The six-piece HKTS 30BQ provides a best-in-class cinema experience while elevating your home theater from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary.
