Harman Kardon Citation Tower is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous and refined I bought these in addition to the Citation sound bar, surround speakers and subwoofer and the whole system sounds amazing. Now granted these are for movies with the kids in the "theater" room but for music they're not bad either. However for the ultimate room where I watch racing and movies I'm going to build the traditional Speaker/AVR combo. The whole Citation system is extremely beautiful to look at and listen to.

Can you use multiple subwoofers with the Citation Soundbar? I am currently using the Soundbard, Towers, Subwoofer, and surround speakers. Would like to add more speakers if possible. I'm going overboard. I want the whole house to shake :)

Asked by: RyanEBR1190RX
Currently our Citation series are only capable of having 5.1 surround sound system.

Hello there,&nbsp; When aiming to build a home cinema, is a subwoofer from the citation series necessary to accomplish this point? Because I read that each Tower is being powered by a subwoofer with a speaker diameter of 20cm. Are only the towers enough?

Asked by: Amar S
The Citation Towers can be paired to the Citation Sub without a Bar or Adapt. Details/instructions on how to do so are available in owners manual (above). However, in this format you cannot use HDMI ARC, Optical or RCA inputs for TV that are supported by the bar and adapt. The towers will support bluetooth, so if your TV also supports bluetooth as an audio source, it's possible.

Hi, is it possible to use Towers in stereo using the citation bar as audio source for Music (Chromecast built-in etc.), but not using the soundbar speakers?

Asked by: Tonza
Yes you can. The Citation towers can be used as a stand alone speaker pair through Google home app.

Will this work with Enchant 1300 ?

Asked by: Venkbaskar
Yes, the Enchant 1300 can be grouped with the Citation Tower using the Google Home App. However, they would not form a surround system. The Towers can only be used as surround/front speakers with the Citation Bar or Citation Adapt. If you have questions or concerns, please submit a case request at https://www.harmankardon.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you.

Will these speakers be able to stream and sync the audio with the video from chromecast plugged into a television out of the box (services like netflix)? Or will it only be limited to chromecast audio streaming only (services like pandora or spotify)

Asked by: jazzy jeff
When used as a stand alone speaker system, the TOWER will only work with Google Home and BT. The BAR or ADAPT is needed in order to utilize audio/video features.
