Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary
Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of
speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in
speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.
Wide Dispersion Array Satellites: The RM8 wide dispersion
array satellite speakers create a more enveloping, less localizable surround
effect because the speaker's drivers are mounted on opposing baffles for a
broader and larger front-stage sound field and a more immersive and atmospheric
surround field. The RM8's feature a designated left and right speaker for proper
speaker placement. The speakers feature two 2-1/2" dynamic balance composite
drivers mounted on different sides of the speaker's enclosure and one 3/4"
silk/polymer composite dome tweeter for rich, real life imaging.
Enclosure: The RM8 wide dispersion array satellite speakers
feature an acoustic suspension, non-resonant composite enclosure with a
high-gloss finish (black or white) for great looks and natural sound. The
three-sided cabinet design minimizes the visual impact on walls and shelves
while the integrated baffle and anti-diffraction grille design allows maximum
sound dispersion with minimum diffraction for superior imaging and room-filling
Speaker Terminals: The spring clip terminals located on the
bottom of the array satellite speakers will accept pin connectors and bare wire.
Video Shielded: The RM8 satellite speakers are magnetically
(or video) shielded for safe placement near your TV or computer monitor without
causing picture interference.
Mounting Options: The RM8 wide dispersion array satellite
speakers feature a removable base which allows you to place the speakers on a
shelf or table top. The base adds approximately 0.4375" to the height of the
speaker. The array satellite speakers can also be wall mounted using the
supplied wall mount bracket which lets you rotate the speaker horizontally. In
addition, the RM8 satellite speakers are compatible with Polk's SA-3 floor
