Big Speaker Sound... Without the Big Speaker
The exciting RM6500 home theater speaker system delivers the level of performance demanded by audio enthusiasts... in a package that's easily integrated into any room. This tiny package sacrifices nothing to bring surprisingly B-I-G movie theater sound to your home theater.
The RM6500 features:
- Perfectly matched front, center and surround satellites guarantee seamless, lifelike surround sound imaging. Perfect for today's state of the art Dolby Digital (AC-3) systems.
- All new design: soft lines and sculptured shapes to blend unobtrusively into any decor.
- The palm-sized satellite cabinets are constructed of a space-age polymer aggregate material that has the look, feel and acoustic properties of stone.
- The satellites and center channel speakers feature Polk's anti-diffraction system of raised driver components to minimize grill edge diffraction for spacious imaging and excellent off-axis performance in your home theater.
- Innovative wall mounting hardware supplied for all 4 satellite speakers.
- All satellites (including center) are magnetically shielded for safe placement next to your TV.
- The all new 100-watt powered subwoofer -- featuring Polk's patented Power Port venting -- is designed specifically for the RM6500. It packs big bass into a footprint that's less than one square foot!

Size and performance.
I purchased this set in 1999 and have never looked back. They are PERFECT in every way. True home theatre at the perfect price. And that great Polk Audio Customer Service. You can't go wrong.

I recently got the deal of the century by purchasing this set in mint condition from someone who said they had upgraded. Upgraded to what? Anyone who craves perfect sound for music or video has to buy this system. You will love yourself. Bose step to the back of the line. I am a former Bose owner.

Sound, price, stealth size, and fit and finish
WOW, is all I can say!! My system has never sounded better! I always heard Polk Audio were great speakers and now I am a convert. My wife loves them too because the speaker are small and I hide the powered subwoofer in the corner behind the drapes. The sound is VERY BIG, crisp, accurate, with solid bass!! I love it!

Great sound in a reasonably small package. Makes my films and music come alive.
Have had these a long while and have upgraded all of the other components at least once and some more than once. I've now moved and am building out my second home theater, but have never felt the need to change these speakers. These are great! Best bang for my buck ever.

"If you are looking at entering the home theater sound market, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better system than the RM6500 â€“ at $1,099.00, the performance price ratio is hard to beat. But look, and listen around â€“ do your research and read the specifications carefully before investing. My feeling is that you'll come to the same conclusion that I did â€“ as a long-term investment, the Polk RM6500 Series is a keeper."
