Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
Best sound [ MICHAEL  Aug 20, 2018 ]
Description said it was stereo [ JAMES  Feb 14, 2018 ]
Marshall at Crutchfield was very helpful and provided great information about the sound quality of this unit + the consumer reviews were 5 stars across the board on a well known brand. [ Melissa  Jan 24, 2018 ]
Listened to sound quality on YouTube video excellent for its portable size. Crutchfield price hard to beat [ Richard K.  Jan 04, 2018 ]
I chose this product on Crutchfield because of the company's great reputation and I chose this particular product because, based on many reviews from other customers, it appears the speaker will do the job I want it to do in a better way than what I thought was possible. I'll follow up with my experience with the unit once it's been placed in operation. [ JOSEPH  Dec 29, 2018 ]
Have had HK products in the past and always satisfied with their performance and quality [ RICHARD J  Dec 20, 2018 ]
It was between this and the Klipsch The One - Hope I chose wisely! [ Zach  Aug 09, 2018 ]

[ Junior  Nov 30, 2019 ]
If Alexa is Bluetooth, yes . This HK sounds incredible at 50-60% volume it so clean, powerful and tight bass
[ jesse james  Mar 18, 2019 ]
My speaker is not keeping a charge of the power point. It shows fully charged but as soon as you disconnect it from the power source. You can only use it for about 10 minutes. Does it need a new battery?

[ Krissy  Nov 12, 2019 ]  Staff
ours will run for hours while disconnected from the wall socket
[ Julie  Nov 04, 2019 ]
Yes sounds like you have a defective battery if it isn't holding a charge, if it under warranty within the first year contact Harmon kardon to setup a claim. Since crutchfield is a licensed retail shoot them a call and explain what it's doing as well. I have had mine a few years with no issues because I let it die on occasion so it preserves the batteries shelf life. At 55% power which is it's sweet spot I usually get 3 1/2 to 4 hours in between charges
[ jesse james  Nov 04, 2019 ]
Thanks and sorry but I returned this speaker so I would not know.
[ Gordon  Nov 03, 2019 ]
can you control the speaker volume via music source (IPhone ect.) and can multiple speakers be paired for right/left output?
[ RobandGinny  Sep 16, 2019 ]
1 answer
Yes and no? The write up described the unit as " stereo" when I purchased. Very powerful and clear, good bass for outside use
[ JAMES  Sep 18, 2019 ]
