Harman Kardon engineers have designed the HKTS 65 loudspeakers to deliver robust sound from a compatible AVR (audio/video receiver) or 20- to 150-watt power amplifier, whether you are using it as a stand-alone unit or as part of a surround-sound system
Four voice-matched satellite speakers with dual 3-inch (75-millimeter) flat-diaphragm midrange drivers and 1-inch (25-millimeter) CMMD Lite high-frequency dome tweeters produce a rich, realistic, all-encompassing sonic performance with convincing sound effects. A 2-1/2-way crossover function helps ensure smooth transitions between the satellite speakers’ midrange drivers and tweeters.
The HKTS 65’s center-channel speaker features a pair of 3-inch (75-millimeter) flat-diaphragm midrange drivers and a 1-inch (25-millimeter) CMMD Lite dome tweeter for clear, precise dialogue from movies, TV shows and 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.
The HKTS 65’s 200-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. Installing the sub is a breeze with the included wireless transmitter that connects to the subwoofer output of any amplifier or receiver. The subwoofer lends an impressive richness and credibility to your home theater experience, while wireless operation reduces cable clutter.
As a complete home theater package, the HKTS 65 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.
The HKTS 65 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.
Controls on the HKTS 65’s 200-watt subwoofer let you fine-tune its bass output for your personal taste and room acoustics. Bass-boost, 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.
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 65’s magnetically shielded loudspeaker components can deliver high-quality, high-performance results even when you place them near a TV.
The HKTS 65 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’s or processor’s dedicated subwoofer output to provide better low-end performance.
If wall-mounting is not your preferred method of installation, optional HTFS floor stands (sold separately) can set the HKTS 65 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.
