The Central Element in Your High Performance Compact Home Theater System
The RM8 center channel is a sleek, minimalist design that delivers impressively big sound. Heavy-duty, non-resonant composite enclosures feature an elegant, high-gloss finish that looks great, while high performance RM Series components give this hardworking center channel speaker the means to anchor the action and clear dialogue to your screen. Purchase separate single RM8 centers to add to a “rear center” to your system and create extended multi-channel sound systems.
The RM8 Center Speaker Features:
The unique Reuleaux triangular polygon shape is acoustically ideal, minimizing resonances and standing waves inside the speaker to eliminate the “boominess” that makes other small speakers sound “muddy,” delivering superior midrange performance and lifelike imaging.
Special anti-diffraction baffle design produces sophisticated accoustic sculpting, with the largest possible dispersion pattern and virtually no edge diffraction or distortion.
Composite driver technology works in tandem with the enclosure shape (and Polk’s patented Dynamic Balance® tuning process) to produce excellent flat frequency response, with sharp detail, transparent imaging and the ability to play loud without any strain, something you won’t find in other small speaker systems.
The silk/polymer dome tweeter delivers superior imaging and smooth highs.
RM Series speakers weigh just 3lbs, so you can put them virtually anywhere; on stands, on shelves, on walls. RM7 & RM8 speakers come with secure wall mount brackets. The RM8 also comes with a surface mount “tripod” base.
RM7 center & RM8 center speakers are magnetically shielded for safe placement near your monitor or TV, and come with custom-designed surface mount cradles for easy placement on any flat surface.
This RM Series is mix-and-match compatible, so you can buy them in sets or in pairs and build the compact sound system of your dreams, 5.1, 6.1, 7.1 and beyond.
All RM Series speakers are professionally timbre-matched to sound perfect together in any speaker configuration.

I bought this speaker because I just reno'd my living room fireplace and wanted a small speaker that I could flush mount in with the cultured stone. Great sound from a small speaker. The last thing I wanted with a TV on the wall was a big center channel taking up a bunch of wall space.

Good sound, clarity, can play loud music and movies and is compact.
Non found any waknesses.
I buy it center speaker and the RM8 Satellites. I was amaze with the good sound, clarity and can play loud music and movies. It is compact and take not much space on home theater cabinet or wall. The satellites was amazing too, now my system sound as a large one without have bigs speakers (a good improvement to my home theater, big speaker are distracting). I hightly recommend it to anyone home theater (big or little).

Sound quality, build (I like speakers, even smaller ones, to have a good amount of weight to them), mount comes with it, frequency range, sound reproduction.
Absolutely unbeatable center in the price range. This center outperforms most others <$350 in sound quality, clarity, appearance, and pretty much everything else. Really looks great and sounds great too. I reviewed the RM8 surround bookshelf speakers with more commentary.
