Onkyo SKS-22X 2 : HT-X22HDX owners need this kit!

Excellent system, worth spending the extra for the 5. 1 surround speakers. Excellent system and worth spending the extra for the 5. 1 surround speakers for the onkyo 2. 1, lots of adjustment for tone and bass levels to get the right level for your room size and shape, neat and compact system worth the money.

I had hoped the addition of a centre channel would lift the performance of this system, but it hasn’t really. Results are ok but i’ve heard much better.

A must have to complete onkyo htx-22hd. I purchase this upgrade for an onkyo htx-22hd (it work with both htx-22hd and htx-22hdx). The setup is easy, you’re immediately ready to enjoy 5. I immediately bought new speakers cable (2×2,5mm). You’ll really hear the difference. If you have the space i recommend to upgrade your system. Here are the specifications for the Onkyo SKS-22X 2:

I bought the main unit a while ago and was impressed by the sound quality and wanted to hear what difference these make. Speech is definitely improved and the surround sound from a blu ray player linked with a optical cable is fantastic.

1 for three years and can’t believe i waited so long to do the upgrade. You will not be disappointed the difference is spectacular. I just wish i’d done it ages ago. The one thing that i didn’t realise is that sky only broadcast everything in dolby d if you have the hd package so i upgraded but blue ray is awesome.

    Great product at a great price. Would use again and recommend.
    • We’ve had the full onkyo ht-x22hdx + sks-22x 5. 1 system for 4 years now and these 3 add on speakers are essential. We’ve been using the £250ish onkyo ht-x22hdx 2. 1 (left + right front speaker and subwoofer av amp) home cinema system for 4 years now with this matching £90 onkyo sks-22x speaker set that add in the front central (middle) speaker and the two rear satellite speakers to provide the surround sound. These 3 speakers are pretty essential to get the best out of the onkyo ht-x22hdx. There’s plenty of thin ‘clear’ cable supplied with these three speakers, and as we have plenty of furniture and sit close to the main 32″ (3d) samsung smarttv it was easy to hide the satellite speaker cables. The middle speaker sits just behind the tv anyway, with the subwoofer/av amp sited next to the tv stand. 1 speakers you do have to go through all the ht-x22hdx menu options on the subwoofer av amp to get the sound volume right for each speaker location and the delay audio sync to synch speech with lips on the video. Our blu-ray player feeds directly into the onkyo ht-x22hdx to retain the 5. 1 surround sound (which can be lost via arc(tv)).

    Ht-x22hdx owners need this kit. I bought this and the onkyo ht-x22hdx 2. 1 surround sound – i didn’t want a massive av receiver and this kit seemed to fulfill my requirements: a small(ish) sub with the gubbins built in, a fairly discrete set of speakers and a decent performance given the price/size of kit. Speakers are decent enough for their price, they are shiny black plastic and look a bit cheap but they’re ok build quality and sound ok so no complaints there.

    Great addition to the htx22. These are quality kit for the price and are well worth the money to upgrade the htx 22 into 5. Very easy to set up and adjust to your room size. They offer great surround sound at an affordable price. At time of purchase i paid under £280 for the 2. 1 system & these extra speakers.
    • 1 system, but a solution to convert an onkyo 2. 1 system and now also all options on the hdx-22 are available, such as surround sound et cetera.

    Should have spent more for better quality. . Expensive for what they are, should have spent more for better quality.
    • These are great and now i have 5. 1 you really need to upgrade and get the these. It has been great listening to the background noise at the world cup 2014 and i almost feel that i am there. Glad i never paid to go and watch england though. But the experience would have been good there. This is the next best and i would wholly recommended them.

    1 system for a couple of years before deciding that i should upgrade, and i only wish that i did it sooner. It takes a while to calibrate the speakers properly for the layout of your room, but the onkyo receiver gives you plenty of control over this.
    • I’m using those onkyos with skw-208 bass reflex powered subwoofer and aeg floor full speakers. I think for my setup they are a little bit too small/weak, i’m still trying to tweak them out because of size of other components. Anyway sound itself is very nice & clean, and design is nice. Rear speakers are easy to montage on wall.

    Connected up to my onkyo amp and the sounds are far superior than before. Recommend these to any one looking to upgrade for the price.
    • Added these to my onkyo ht-x22hd system and it makes a huge diffrence and that’s without the 2 rear speakers which i am yet to plug in.
      • Bought this based on the reviews where on amazon. 1 220hdx system, i’ve give it a go for the 3 add-on columns. Currently i’m only using the central one (3. 1 configuration) and the difference is notorious, especially on the speech level. For any one that has the base system, the add-on set is highly recommended.

    Essential upgrade for onkyo htx-22hdx, sounds great. 1 surround, or strengthens stereo (depending on arrangement)- massively improves mid-range and crossover with subwoofer- unlocks new listening modes on the htx-22hdx, but you’ll want to stick with dolby/dts- in movies and tv, voices come through clearly on the centre speaker- music sounds better all roundcons:- stripping and attaching the cables is fiddly.

    Essential purchase but cables too short. . This is an essential purchase to upgrade your onkyo system to 5. The price is easily justified by the additional benefits of having the centre and surround speakers. The only problem is that the rear speaker cables were too short. My room isn’t large but once the cables have weaved around furniture (you can’t always take the direct route across the carpet) and up a speaker stand or wall to a shelf, there simply isn’t enough of it. Fortunately you can buy 25m of cable from amazon for £13 which i ordered at the same time and it works a treat. So don’t let the cable issue put you off. Just a shame that they didn’t ship the product with cables that were 5 meters longer as it wouldn’t have added more than a pound to the price but would have earned 5 stars.
