I am looking to buy a new set of 5.1 speakers for my family room. The Harmon Kardon HKTS 18 5.1 set has good reviews, and a very attractive price.

My one question that I cant find any info on is... Is the subwoofer with this set downward firing?

Thanks for any help.

I tried to find out, but you're right...no info. It appears to be a downfiring driver, which couples better. But, floor reflections at higher levels can increase distortion.


And I worked for Sydney Harman. He used to come unglued when people spelled his name "Harmon."

So you are 100% sure it is downward firing?


BTW: My appolgies.. "Harman" I didnt realize I was misspelling it, but take note for future use.

Why does it matter to you if its downward firing or front firing? Just curious.

Its going in a family room with kids, so front firing would be more exposed to hazard of the kids hitting it with toys, poking it, etc.


Hence I would really like to confirm it is downward firing.

I am not, but on your behalf, I surfed around the net trying to find out. There isn't much extensive info on this sub, but it looks to be nice for the money.
