Big Speaker Sound... Without the Big Speaker

The Future Is Flat

Sales of flat-panel and thin wall-hanging plasma tee-vees will top sales of bulkier traditional models this year, according to every major tech news source. All the tech giants like Sony, Sharp, and Samsung are posting flat screen TV sales that are outpacing forecasts. A sleek screen you can hang on the wall has become the latest must-have gadget; every movie setting that involves a TV now uses a flat screen (widescreen!) monitor instead of a traditional television. Last year, about one and a half million people bought flat screen TVs. With technology advancing at a rapid pace, the industry claims to be seeing up to 19 million flat TVs being sold annually by 2006.

So you hang your new TV on wall. Still gonna settle for box speakers on stands? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a flat wall-hanging TV? You don't even want our traditional little square RM Series speakers hanging on the wall next to your flat screen.

But you do want the RM7200. Because nothing beats speakers that are compact, full performance shallow-depth speakers, beautifully molded especially to present a stylish complement to your flat screen TV.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I should just say, "Look," and shut right up...

For flat screen TVs, no speaker works as well, or sounds as good, as the compact RM7200 System: four identical shallow-depth Satellites, a matching Center Channel Speaker and a Powered Subwoofer (in one package!).

RM7200 Satellites and Center Channel Speaker features:

  • High gloss black laminate finish (also available with Titanium satellites and Gloss Black Subwoofer).
  • Satellites and Center are a mere 4" (10.2cm) deep.
  • Sleek, rounded design minimizes cabinet-edge diffraction for more open, spacious sound.
  • Built-in wall mount system.
  • Patented Power Port venting technology reduces air turbulence at the mouth of the port, resulting in demonstrably lower distortion and improved lower midrange frequency extension.
  • Magnetically shielded for safe placement next to your TV without picture interference.
  • Anti-diffraction driver bezel minimizes grille diffraction for open, spacious and three-dimensional imaging.
  • Cascade tapered array on the center channel avoids the common comb filter and "beaming effect" problems of side-by-side center speakers. Everyone in the room hears the same clear, natural dialog and center channel effects.

RM7200 Powered Subwoofer (the new PSW550) features:

  • 8 inch (20cm) direct radiating, long-throw subwoofer driver.
  • Magnetically shileded for safe placement next to your TV without picture interference.
  • High current 100 watt RMS power amplifier.
  • Subwoofer volume control, variable crossover control and phase switch allow you to optimize performance to match your audio system, room acoustics, and program material.
  • Auto on/off circuit.
  • +3dB bass boost switch.
  • Unfiltered LFE input for use with low pass filtered subwoofer output jacks.
  • Speaker and line level inputs.
