Description and Features
The HKTS 18 is a six-piece home theater
speaker system that includes a 10-inch,
200-watt, bass-reflex powered subwoofer;
four identical, two-way, dual-midrange
satellite speakers for use in the left and
right front and rear speaker positions; a
voice-matched, dedicated, dual-driver
center speaker; shelf stands and wall-mount
brackets for the four satellites; and all of
the speaker cables you need to connect
your speakers to your receiver or preamp/
processor and amplifier. The speaker cables
and speakers are all color-coded to conform to the CEA® standard, simplifying
setup, especially when the system is used
with a Harman Kardon receiver.
The HKTS 18 subwoofer is easy to connect
to your system, since it’s equipped with a
subwoofer input for use with equipment that
has a dedicated subwoofer low-frequency
output. It also includes stereo speaker-level
inputs and outputs for connection to older
receivers and processors that do not have
a line-level subwoofer output. Other conve-

trigger input for automatic turn-on when
connected to a compatible product, a highcut (low-pass) filter switch and a phase
switch for fine-tuning bass response to suit
your listening environment and taste, and
audio-sense auto turn-on, which senses the
presence of an audio signal and automatically switches the unit from Standby mode
to Active mode.
Shelf stands and wall-mount brackets are
included for the satellite speakers, and
optional HTFS 2 floor stands are available
separately from your Harman Kardon dealer.
Harman Kardon invented the high-fidelity

place itself in the Standby mode, depending on
whether it is receiving an audio signal. When
this switch is placed in the ON position, the
SUB-TS18 will remain on, whether or not it is
receiving an audio signal.
An LED located on top of the SUB-TS18
indicates whether the SUB-TS18 is in the On
or Standby state when used with the AudioSense On/Off Switch ¢ in the AUTO
position. The LED is lit blue to indicate that
the SUB-TS18 is receiving an audio signal
and is turned on, and the LED is lit amber to
indicate that no signal is being received and
the SUB-TS18 is in the Standby mode.
When the Audio-Sense On/Off Switch ¢
is in the ON position, the LED will be lit
blue, whether or not an audio signal is
present.
When the Master Power Switch ‚ is
turned off, the LED goes dark, no matter
which position the Audio-Sense On/Off
Switch ¢ is in.
∞ Phase Switch: This switch determines
whether the SUB-TS18 subwoofer’s pistonlike action moves in and out in phase with
the main speakers. If the speakers were to
play out of phase, the sound waves produced by the subwoofer would be canceled
out, reducing bass response. This phenomenon depends in part on the relative placement of the speakers in the room. In most
cases, the Phase Switch ∞ should be left
in the NORMAL position. However, it
does no harm to experiment with the Phase
Switch ∞, and you may leave it in the
position that maximizes bass response.

§ Line-Level Subwoofer (SUB) Input:
Connect the subwoofer output of a receiver
with digital surround sound decoding, such
as Dolby® Digital or DTS®, to this input. This
input bypasses the SUB-TS18’s internal
crossover circuitry, and should only be used
with a filtered signal. If your receiver does not
have digital decoding, you should use the
Line-Level Full-Range Inputs ¶ instead.
¶ Line-Level Full-Range Inputs: Connect
the line-level subwoofer output or preamp output(s) of your receiver or amplifier to these
inputs. If your receiver does not have a separate subwoofer output, use a Y-adapter (not
supplied) to bridge the receiver’s preamp output to the main amp input for that channel,
and connect the long end of the adapter
to the corresponding line-level input on the
SUB-TS18. If your receiver has only a single
subwoofer output, you may connect it to
either the left or right line-level input on the
SUB-TS 18, and no Y-adapter is needed.
ª Speaker-Level Inputs: If your receiver
or amplifier does not have a line-level subwoofer output, connect these binding-post
terminals to the main left and right speaker
terminals of your receiver or amplifier.
Remember to maintain polarity by connecting
the (+) terminal on the receiver/amplifier to the
(+) terminal on the SUB-TS18 subwoofer, and
the (–) terminal on the receiver/amplifier to the
(–) terminal on the SUB-TS18 subwoofer.
‚ Master Power Switch: Place this
switch in the “•” position to power-on the
SUB-TS18 subwoofer. The SUB-TS18 will
then be either in the Standby mode or completely on, depending on the position of the
Audio-Sense On/Off Switch ¢.
⁄ AC Power Cord: Make sure to plug this
cord into an active, unswitched electrical outlet for proper operation of the SUB-TS18.
The cord should not be plugged into the
accessory outlets found on some audio
components.
• Speaker-Level Outputs: If you are
using the Speaker-Level Inputs ª on the
SUB-TS18, you should connect these bindingpost terminals to your front left and right
speakers, remembering to maintain polarity
by connecting the (+) terminal on the
SUB-TS18 subwoofer to the (+) terminal
on the speaker, and the (–) terminal on the
SUB-TS18 subwoofer to the (–) terminal
on the speaker. If you are not using the
Speaker-Level Inputs ª, then connect
your front left and right speakers directly
to your receiver or amplifier. See pages 9
through 12 for further information on speaker
connections.

SPEAKER PLACEMENT
Color-Coding System
The HKTS 18 uses the channel color-coding system established by the Consumer
Electronics Association to make setting up
your home theater speaker system as easy
as possible. Your system includes a set of
colored stickers that may be placed near
the speaker terminals of each of the four
satellite speakers according to the chart
below. It doesn’t matter which satellite
speaker is used for any of the front or rear
positions. (The center speaker and powered
subwoofer are already color-coded for you.)

Before you begin to connect cables, it is
important to set up your speakers in their
correct locations in the room.
Optimally, the speakers should be placed in
a circle with the listening position at its center. The distance from the listening position
to the video display forms the radius of
the circle.
The speakers should be angled so that they
directly face the listening position. The center speaker is placed either on top of or
below the video display screen.
The front left and right speakers are placed
along the circle, about 30 degrees from
the center speaker and angled toward
the listener.

It is best to place the front left/right and
center speakers as close to the same
height as possible, preferably about the
same height as the listener’s ears. In any
event, the center speaker should be no
more than two feet above or below the
left/right speakers.
The side surround speakers should be
placed 110 degrees from the center
speaker; that is, slightly behind and angled
toward the listener. If this isn’t feasible, place
the surround speakers behind the listener,
with each surround speaker facing the
opposite-side front speaker. The surround
speakers may be placed a little higher than
the listener’s ears.

The subwoofer’s location is less critical,
since low-frequency sounds are omnidirectional. Placing the subwoofer close to a
wall or in a corner will reinforce the low frequencies, and may create a “boomy” sound.
You may wish to experiment over time by
placing the subwoofer where the listener
normally sits and then walking around the
room until the low frequencies sound best.
Place the subwoofer in that spot.

Speaker-Level Connection Guide
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before making speaker
connections, be certain that your receiver
or audio power amplifier is turned off and
preferably unplugged from its AC power
source. The SUB-TS18 subwoofer should
not be connected to an AC power source
until all speaker wire connections have
been made.
Speakers and electronics terminals have
corresponding (+) and (–) terminals. Most
manufacturers of speakers and electronics,
including Harman Kardon, use red to denote
the (+) terminal and black for the (–)
terminal.
has a purple SUB input jack. This system is
intended to help you ensure that the speaker
in each location is connected to the correct
terminals on your receiver or amplifier.
The (+) lead of the speaker wire is indicated
with a stripe and has the colored band corresponding to the speaker’s position. It is
important to connect all speakers identically:
(+) on the speaker to (+) on the amplifier
and (–) on the speaker to (–) on the amplifier. Wiring “out of phase” results in thin
sound, weak bass and a poor stereo image.
With the advent of multichannel surround
sound systems, connecting all of the speakers
in your system with the correct polarity
remains equally important in order to preserve
the proper ambience and directionality of the
program material.
To connect the supplied speaker wires to
the satellite and center speaker terminals
located on the bottom of each speaker,
press the red or black tab, insert the bare
end of the wire into the hole and release the
tab. Gently tug on the wire to make sure
that it is fully inserted.
Newer Harman Kardon receivers conform to
the new CEA standard and therefore use a
color other than red or black for the (+) terminal to indicate some speaker positions:
e.g., surround left. Although the HKTS 18
system has red and black collars on the
individual speaker terminals to denote the
positive and negative connections, your
system includes a colored band on the
positive lead at both ends of every speaker
cable and a matching colored sticker for
each of the four satellite speakers, conforming
to the chart on page 7. The center speaker
has a green (+) terminal, and the subwoofer
For the best performance, Harman Kardon
recommends that the subwoofer be connected using either the Line-Level
Subwoofer (SUB) Input § or the LineLevel Full-Range Inputs ¶. However,
if the application requires the use of the
speaker-level connections for the subwoofer,
unscrew the binding-post collar until the
pass-through hole in the center post is visible under the collar. Insert the bare end of
the wire through this hole; then screw the
collar down until the connection is tight. The
hole in the center of each collar is intended
for use with banana-type connectors.

(marked Power) to the “•” (On) position.
The SUB-TS18 subwoofer will automatically
turn itself on or go into Standby mode,
depending on whether or not a signal is
being sent to it by your receiver or surround
processor, and provided that the AudioSense On/Off Switch ¢ is moved down
so that it is in the AUTO position.
When your receiver or amplifier is off, or is
not sending program material to the subwoofer, the subwoofer will be in Standby
mode and the LED indicator on the top
of the subwoofer will turn amber. When the
subwoofer senses an audio signal, it will automatically turn itself on and the LED indicator
will turn blue. If the subwoofer does not
sense a signal after approximately 20 minutes,
it will automatically go into Standby mode.
When the Audio-Sense On/Off Switch ¢
is switched to the ON position, the subwoofer will remain on, whether or not program material is playing, and the LED indicator will remain lit blue.
If your receiver, processor or amplifier is
equipped with a compatible trigger output,
you may connect it to the SUB-TS18’s
External Trigger Input £. When you turn
on your component, if you have set it up correctly, it will send an electrical trigger signal
to the SUB-TS18, which will cause the
subwoofer to turn itself on, even when the
Audio-Sense On/Off Switch ¢ has been
placed in the AUTO position and no audio
signal is detected.
The trigger signal must be between 3 and 30
volts, although it may be an AC or DC signal,
and an AC signal may be 50Hz or 60Hz.
If you’ll be away from home for an extended
period of time, or if the subwoofer will not be
used, switch the Master Power Switch ‚
to the OFF position.
Volume
Additional Bass Adjustments
Volume can be adjusted using the Subwoofer-Level Control ¡, as shown.
Turn the control knob clockwise to
increase the volume of the subwoofer,
and counterclockwise to decrease the
subwoofer’s volume.
In addition to the volume adjustments described
previously, the SUB-TS18 subwoofer includes
a Phase Switch ∞ and a Filter Switch
™ that can be used to adjust the bass
response to suit your listening environment
or taste.

In most situations, the Phase Switch ∞
should be left in the NORMAL position.
If you suspect that the subwoofer is playing
out of phase with the other speakers, which
would tend to diminish bass response, try
placing this switch in the REVERSE
position. There is no harm in experimenting,
and you may return the switch to the
NORMAL position at any time. If you
rearrange your room and reposition the
speakers, it would be a good idea to check
whether they are in phase by flipping this
switch.
The High-Cut (Low-Pass) Filter Switch
™ limits the frequencies of the audio signal
inputted to the subwoofer to the low frequencies that the subwoofer reproduces
best. This allows the subwoofer to perform
more efficiently, and with superior bass
reproduction, minimizing distortion that might
occur if the subwoofer attempted to reproduce higher frequencies. This switch should
be left in the ON position, except:
1. When the SUB Input § is being used,
in which case it has no effect, or
2. When the Speaker-Level Inputs ª
or the Line-Level Full-Range Inputs
¶ are being used with a crossover or
filter aboard the receiver or processor.
In these two circumstances, place the switch
in the OFF position.

SYMPTOM
SOLUTION
If there is no sound from
any of the speakers:
• Check that receiver/amplifier is on and a source is playing.
• Check that the powered subwoofer is plugged in and its Master Power Switch ‚ is switched on to the “•” position.
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires.
• Review proper operation of your receiver/amplifier.
If there is no sound coming • Check the “Balance” control on your receiver/amplifier.
from one speaker:
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires.
• In Dolby Digital or DTS mode, make sure that the receiver/processor is configured so that the speaker in question is enabled.
• Turn off all electronics and switch the speaker in question with one of the other speakers that is working correctly. Turn
everything back on, and determine whether the problem is in the same place (i.e., the speaker that was working previously
now has no sound, and the speaker that was not working now sounds fine), or whether it has moved (i.e., the speaker that
was not working still has no sound, and the speaker that was working is still fine). If the problem is in the same place, the
source of the problem is most likely with your receiver or amplifier, and you should consult the owner’s manual for that product
for further information. If the problem has followed the speaker, consult your dealer for further assistance or, if that is not
possible, visit our Web site at www.harmankardon.com for further information.
If there is no sound from
the center speaker:
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speaker. Make sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires.
• If your receiver/processor is set in Dolby Pro Logic mode, make sure the center speaker is not in Phantom mode.
• If your receiver/processor is set in Dolby Digital or DTS mode, make sure the receiver/processor is configured so that
the center speaker is enabled.
If the system plays at low
volumes but shuts off as
volume is increased:
• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires are connected.
Make sure none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires.
• If more than one pair of main speakers is being used, check the minimum impedance requirements of your receiver/amplifier.
If there is low (or no) bass • Make sure the SUB Input § or Line-Level Inputs ¶ of the SUB-TS18 subwoofer and SUB or LFE output
output:
of your receiver or amplifier are properly connected by the RCA-type interconnect cable.
• If you are using the SUB-TS18’s Speaker-Level Inputs ª, check your speaker cables to make sure they are all
connected; that none of the wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires; and that you have maintained the
correct polarity by connecting positive terminals to positive terminals, and negative terminals to negative terminals.
• Make sure the subwoofer is plugged into an active electrical outlet and its Master Power Switch ‚ is
switched on to the “•” position.
• Check the speaker setup (bass management) settings in your A/V receiver or processor to make certain that the front,
center and surround speakers are configured for “Small,” and that the subwoofer is set for “Yes” or “On.”
If there is no sound from
the surround speakers:

• Check all wires and connections between receiver/amplifier and speakers. Make sure all wires are connected. Make sure
none of the speaker wires are frayed, cut, punctured or touching other wires.
• Review proper operation of your receiver/processor and its surround sound features.
• Make sure the movie or TV show you are watching is recorded in a surround sound mode. If it is not, check to see
whether your receiver/processor has other surround modes you may use.
• In Dolby Digital or DTS mode, make sure your receiver/processor is configured so that the surround speakers are enabled.
• Review the operation of your DVD player and the jacket of your DVD to make sure that the DVD features the desired
Dolby Digital or DTS mode, and that you have properly selected that mode using both the DVD player’s menu
and the DVD disc’s menu.
