seamless integration with the rest of my system
does not come in black
I use the rm101 as surround speakers and I feel like I have to chech if they are there sometimes the sound from the front to the back is almost seamless. they perform their job very well. I would recommend them to anyone with a limited budget and wanting unlimited sound.

Great speakers, whith excellent mid/high range coverage. Crisp and clear sound that you would expect out of a Polk product.
While base is good for size of speaker, a subwoofer will be necessary for heavy low frequencies. The speakers will not accept banana plugs, due to the fact that the box that the connectors are in, is poorly designed and gets in the way.
I use these speakers for my front mains, and three rear surround sound speakers. I also use a 6902 for center channel. For the price and size of the speakers you may not expect much, however the reality is that the speakers give off a very warm high and mid range. As one would expect by the size, to have a complete good sounding system a subwoofer is necessary, as the little woofer on these things can not provide effective low frequency coverage.

Great sound, makes you jump in your seat when watching a dts or surround sound movie. Look for awhile to find.
I have no knocks against them. Becasue this is the best I've had.
I brought the "package" woofer, front speaker and 4 surrounds. Wish I had two more for the surrounds, but can't find them.
