Our take on the Polk RM6000

by Barry Montgomery
Polk Audio

Why choose a pre-matched speaker system?

Looking for speakers that'll deliver thrilling, edge-of-your-seat surround sound? Choosing a pre-matched speaker system is one way to ensure seamless home theater performance. These systems are made up of speakers that share the same tonal characteristics — that means the sound will stay consistent as it moves from speaker to speaker around your room. Most pre-matched systems come with a subwoofer — a must-have for high-impact bass.

The RM6000 is an affordable introduction to Polk's award-winning RM Series home theater systems. The system includes four 2-way satellites (two for front left/right, two for surround left/right), plus a voice-matched center channel speaker. Each satellite employs a 1/2" silk dome tweeter and a 3" midrange, while the center speaker features the same tweeter with dual midranges. All five speakers are video-shielded, and each includes a built-in keyhole slot for easy wall-mounting. They also accept optional swivel brackets for maximum flexibility.

The powered subwoofer pairs a 50-watt RMS amplifier with a 8" front-firing woofer to provide potent low-frequency response. You'll love the way it adds powerful roar and rumble to your home theater experience — the enhanced bass response also helps bring your favorite music to life. Add it all up, and you'll find that the RM6000 is a great way to fill smaller rooms with spacious home theater sound!
