Big speaker sound without the big speaker.

If you're planning to bring the thrills of the movie theater into your home by integrating surround sound with you TV, then the Polk RM5000 is the perfect speaker system for you!

Without the bulk and visual clutter of big box speakers, the RM5000 is ideal where space has to be found to place the 5 or more speakers necessary for home theater. The RM5000 delivers the powerful but precise sound quality demanded by movie soundtracks. It's ability to reproduce voices with crystalline accuracy insures that even whispered dialogue can be clearly heard. The wide dynamic range and superior bass performance will bring the excitement of the theater into your home.

As the sound follows the action, it is important that its character should not change. An F4 fighter jet should not become a single engine Piper Cub as it passes through the center channel speaker. It should convey the same power and thrill as it streaks through your room - from side to side and front to back. All RM5000 satellites use specifically matched drivers. The crossovers have also been carefully tuned to insure a seamless sound stage, natural reproduction and superior imaging.

Since movie soundtracks place greater demand on an audio system than music, particularly higher levels of bass and a wider range of volume, the RM5000 has been specially designed to excel at reproducing the dynamics of movies. The subwoofer has been tuned to produce bass you can feel as well as hear and elaborate protection circuitry is included to protect the system even if overdriven. Additionally, three satellites are magnetically shielded so you can put them on or against your TV without distorting the picture.
