Official harman kardon homepage says it has just 1 subwoofer × 1 tweeter. but youtube HK channel's ad video says there is 1 bass radiator added. Is there really bass radiator In the front? I would like to know before buying it. Thanks.

Asked by: Etoile
Our HK Onyx Studio 5 has one 120mm woofer and one 25mm tweeter. The bass radiator also refers to that one woofer.

hi, is it possible to charge from car ??

Asked by: akhi
The Onyx Studio 5 charges at 19V/2A, while most car chargers provide a 12V output. Therefore, in this case, you should not use a car charger to charge your device.  If you need further assistance, please submit a case request at https://www.harmanaudio.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Is it possible to turn off the automatic shut-off function while connected to power? I’d like to wake up to music playing as well as falling asleep to it, currently, the speaker turns itself off before I wake up. 

Asked by: Emma
No, the power saving feature is present to all of our speakers and it is not possible to turn it off.

I purchased two of these speakers. The only way I've been able to sync both at the same time is to simultaneously hold down the bluetooth buttons. Is there a way to do this without having to move the speaker every time I want to connect both?

Asked by: DeeS
Figured it out! Turn on and connect only one speaker to music source. Then long press the blue tooth button. Then turn on second speaker, and long press bluetooth button. It is important that the second speaker IS NOT connected already to music source; second speaker will connect to first speaker. This works consistently and my speakers are at least 20 feet apart.

what do i do if my speaker won’t turn on? i plugged it in because it died and it showed the red light for a while and then the light went away. i thought that meant it was done charging, but it won’t turn on. even if it’s plugged in. 

Asked by: hales
