Big Speaker Sound...Without the Big Speaker

Beauty and Brawn in One Compact System

Five compact speakers and a high performance Powered Subwoofer make up the RM20 compact home theater speaker system. Its stylishly sculpted anodized Aluminum Satellites look awesome next to your plasma or flat screen television, and can be mounted either on the wall using their aimable brackets or on shelves. Either way, this system was designed for minimal intrusion into your space, and maximum sound quality. High tech materials and features, such as Satellite PowerPorts® and Subwoofer Slot Load venting technologies, ensure superior sub/sat system performance, delivering rich, full-bodied, big speaker sound from stylish, compact packages.

The RM20 features:

  • Stylishly curved satellite enclosures formed of heavy duty, non-resonant Aluminum; the shape breaks up internal standing wave resonance for pure, lifelike sound.
  • Rich Pewter finish with Charcoal trim sats and center
  • Black subwoofer
  • Individual satellites available to accommodate 6.1 or 7.1 channel systems.
  • The satellites and center feature Power Port Bass Vents hidden under the grilles to extend and strengthen their lower-midrange performance for a seamless blend with the subwoofer output. Unlike competing satellite systems, with this system you'll experience full, rich, natural voices and other midrange sounds.

Center Channel Speaker features an exclusive Center Channel Cradle that aims the speaker toward the listener, from above or below the TV.

Satellites and center feature Swivel Wall-Mounting Brackets with hidden wire channels

  • Threaded inserts on the back of the satellites and center speakers allow use of fully articulating brackets (sold separately).
  • Front Stage Satellites come with custom designed desk or shelf Stands with hidden wire channels.
  • Satellites and center speakers feature two 3-1/4 inch (8.25cm) Mineral Filled Polymer Dynamic Balance midrange drivers for clear, distortion-free midrange even at high volume levels.
  • Broad dispersion design allows everyone in the listening area to hear clear, well-balanced sound.
  • Satellites feature high performance 3/4 inch (19mm) Dynamic Balance Silk/Polymer Composite Dome Tweeter for sweet highs and more lifelike imaging.
  • Connect your RM Series Satellites securely and conveniently with their high quality 5-way binding post inputs.
  • Powered Subwoofer with 10 inch driver and Slot Load Bass Vent pours out deep, efficient bass.
  • Satellites are magnetically shielded for safe placement near your state-of-the-art TV or video monitor with no risk of video distortion.
