Big Speaker Sound... Without the Big Speaker

Beauty and Brawn in One Compact Speaker

The RM6801 satellite is packaged and sold singly and intended for front or surround channel use in RM Series systems. Its stylishly sculpted anodized Aluminum enclosure looks awesome next to your plasma or flat screen television, and can be mounted either on the wall using the supplied aimable brackets or on shelves.
