The HTS6 has a Signal Sensing Auto-On/Off Circuit and 12 Volt trigger, plus level and phase controls. This ensures coherent matching between the HTS6 and the main speakers, regardless of their physical position in the room. In addition, the HTS6 includes XLR and RCA line level input connectors (with input sensitivity) for easy connection to all types of popular decoders, as well as a Link Out connector which allows coupling of two or more subwoofers together when even higher sound pressure levels are required.

The four drivers used in the Genelec HTS6 are 12" diameter long-throw types, while the amplifier can deliver up to 1 kilowatt RMS of short-term power with minimal THD and intermodulation distortion. The amplifier also features power-on muting and driver overload protection. The powerful HTS6 Active Subwoofer measures 20-5/8" H x 56-11/16" W x 22" D and weighs 265 lbs.
