Big Speaker Sound... Without the Big Speaker

Living Together: The RM6005 System & Karen's Tiny Apartment

My friend Karen is a movie freak. She loves movies. She also lives in a tiny apartment over near the college. Even though it's an older building, you'd be surprised at how thin the walls are. Everyone lives right on top of everyone else. Neighbors have a piano, if you can believe it, and the front office knows Karen's voice now because she's complained about it so much. That said, Karen wanted more than just TV sound with the DVDs she was getting into. She wanted a home theater. Like mine, actually. But... She didn't have the room or the budget to spend a bunch on something that would be too overwhelming for her little apartment space. Solution: the RM6005 System and a set of stands.

And I had a great idea. We could document Karen's installation of the RM6005 System in her tiny apartment to demonstrate how convenient it was for small rooms and apartments!

Karen liked the RM6005 because it's Polk's smallest RM System, a truly "Ultra Compact" home theater loudspeaker system: 5 solidly built injection-molded, coffee-cup-sized speakers ready to be matched with your choice of Polk Audio powered subwoofer. That's the beauty of it. You can match them with the sub that delivers the amount of bass that's perfect for your application. In Karen's case, she chose the compact PSW202, the perfect amount of bass to deliver a small impact for movies and music, and a big impact when her neighbors are playing the piano at night.

It took Karen about an hour and half to connect all her new electronics and position up the little RM speakers to the left and right of her television and, for the surrounds, next to her couch. Finally, Karen was ready to watch some DVDs with her new, apartment sized home theater.

"This is the perfect surround sound system for my little apartment," Karen says. "I'm blown away by movies on my tee-vee. It was easy to set up and I've got surprisingly huge theater sound. My brothers and I love to use it with my Playstation!"

  • Beefy 10-inch forward-firing driver that features a vented pole piece for superior power handling and reliability.
  • High current 50-watt Continuous amplifier fills large rooms with solid bass.
  • The bass port is flared on both ends to minimize port turbulence and noise for low distortion and powerful bass response.
  • Adjustable crossover and volume level controls along with a phase switch, allow you to match the subwoofer for any system and room.
