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!
