A Little Convergence Is A Good Thing

Communication and entertainment technology is rapidly converging. Soon, there will be on-demand digital video and multi-channel audio at the touch of a button. Whether it's delivered via satellite, cable, high speed computer modem or some as yet unimagined transport, one thing is certain: you're going to need speakers to hear it. And the more advanced these technologies become, as more channels are added to the “multi-channel� matrix, the more speakers you're going to need. (Ah, job security.)

Over sixty six million people now own DVD players, and 5.1 DVD technology demands at least six speakers! So we here at Polk Audio have been thinking a lot about speaker size. How do you fit all those speakers into your living room without sacrificing performance, without overwhelming your home decor? I believe the RM Series of speaker systems addresses this dilemma. They conveniently deliver all the performance that the new technologies demand, and the popularity of multi-channel sources make satellite/subwoofer systems the perfect solution for you. With them, finding a place to put your speakers won't be difficult, whether they're connected to your standard receiver or that exotic do-everything device that's still a gleam in some engineer's eye. These small speakers come as close as possible to the performance standards of larger speakers, solving the problem of integrating a complete home theater into your space.

No matter what converging technology you choose to enjoy, you're always going to need speakers with which to hear it. These RM Systems were designed with your future in mind.

The RM6700 is a case study in convergent technologies. RM6700 Satellites and Center Channel Speakers have a patented Polk technology built in: they are the first compact home theater speakers to feature Power Port bass venting. This is the same technology used in full-sized Polk Audio speakers; it improves lower end response and the all-important sub/sat blending, taking the RM6700 beyond the performance realm of any other sub/sat system. Team the RM6700 5-Pack with the PSW Series Subwoofer that best suits your bass needs and this system really delivers. This new Power Ported design reveals midrange that's smooth, with no midrange "hole" in the frequencies between the sats and the sub, and male vocals that are rich and full -- not thin and weak like other sub/sat systems!

RM6700 System Features:

  • Perfectly matched Front, Center and Surround Satellites guarantee seamless, lifelike surround sound imaging. Perfect for today's state-of-the-art Dolby Digital and DTS surround systems.
  • Satellites available in Black, Titanium or White finishes to match any decor. NOTE: "White" systems contain 4 White satellites and 1 Black center. All-White satellite/center packages can be special ordered through your Polk dealer.
  • Single-pack Add-On Center Speakers and Satellite Pair Packs available in Black, Titanium or White. See below!
  • Now featuring Power Port bass venting technology for deeper low-end extension and better sub/sat blending: the performance of a full-sized bookshelf speaker in a compact package.
  • Dynamic Balance driver technology tunes out distortion and performance-robbing resonance in the Mineral Filled Polymer Cones, for clear, distortion-free midrange; new driver design delivers better power handling and more "big speaker" dynamic impact.
  • Satellites and Center Channel Speaker feature Polk's anti-diffraction system of raised driver components to minimize grill edge diffraction, delivering spacious imaging and excellent off-axis performance in your home theater.
  • Satellites and Center wall-mount with integrated keyhole slots.
  • Built-in threaded screw inserts accept OmniMount fully articulating mounting brackets.
  • All Satellites and Center speakers are magnetically shielded for safe placement next to your TV.
  • 5-way binding post inputs for secure, high performance cable connections.
  • Separately packaged subwoofer allows you the ability to choose the Polk subwoofer model that is right for you.* The recommended standard subwoofer model is the PSW303. Other recommended matching subwoofers: PSW350, PSW404, PSW450 and PSW505.

PSW303 Features:

  • Real wood veneer finish.
  • Slot Load Venting improves bass response. The wide, long Slot Load Vent dramatically lessens turbulence, noise and distortion, pouring out a tidal wave of precise, thunderous bass!
  • Polk subs sound better because they're built better. Rock-solid MDF construction (including a 1 inch thick front baffle) suppresses enclosure panel resonance for distortion-free, accurate response.
  • Big 8-inch Long Throw Driver for longer excursion and better linearity.
  • Huge Hi-Roll Surrounds that support their longer excursion.
  • Most powered subwoofers are good for just gut-rumble and boom. Polk understands that you listen to music, too, so our subs are tight, precise and accurate.
  • High current 100 Watt Continuous (260 Watt Dynamic) power amplifier.
  • Amp features include LINE LEVEL and SPEAKER LEVEL inputs, independent variable Low-Pass filter and Volume (level) controls, phase switch, auto ON/OFF (signal sensing) power.
  • Unfiltered LFE Line-Level Input.
  • Magnetically shielded for safe, flexible placement.
