Slim floor-standing tower speaker
Big Speaker Sound...Without the Big Speaker
Beauty and Brawn Come Together
The RM40 is the perfect complement to today's stylish video displays and home theater systems. Its sculpted Pewter-finish Aluminum enclosures look awesome flanking your plasma or flat screen television. High tech materials and features, such as patented Power Port bass venting technology and Dynamic Balance composite structure drivers ensure superior performance, delivering rich, full-bodied, big speaker sound from beautiful, compact packages.
Match the RM40 towers with RM Series centers and surround speakers with a Polk powered subwoofer to custom construct the home theater speaker system of your dreams. (See system suggestions at bottom of this page)
The RM40 features:
- Stylishly curved enclosures formed of heavy duty, non-resonant Aluminum; the shape breaks up internal standing wave resonance for pure, lifelike sound.
- The towers 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 slim tower systems, with the RM40 you'll experience full, rich, natural voices and other midrange sounds.
Dual 4-1/2 inch (11.4 cm) 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.
- 1 inch (25mm) Dynamic Balance Silk/Polymer Composite Dome Tweeter for sweet highs and more lifelike imaging.
- Connect your RM40 towers securely and conveniently with their high quality 5-way binding post inputs.

Have alot of bass and clarity compare to bigger speakers and good price. They match modern electronic and their aluminum sculpture around and beautiful small driver.
The only weakness is that Polk does not make a matching subwoofer with the aluminum sculpture around with the pewter color.
These Speakers are the best I've ever heard from Polk I brougth them at a Tweeter store and have the matching Rm30 with the center channel and these speaker are the best not only because of their incredible size and looks but their sound and compact size. They have amazing bass for their size. Really nice job by Polk with the rm series are the best. It would be really amazing if Polk would start producing the DSW micropro subwoofer series with the aluminum sculpture around so it would match the speaker better. Also planning to buy the new VM30 speakers.
