Overview: The Polk Audio OWM5 is a versatile speaker made to
fit a variety of applications. The speaker can be used as a Front left, Front
right or center-channel speaker, as a complete home theater system, or as 5.1,
6.1, or 7.1 surround channel speakers.
Note: The Polk Audio OWM5 is sold individually.
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.
Capacitive Coupling Bass Technology: Capacitive Coupling
Technology (CCT) works by creating a gentle impedance dip within the range where
conventional sealed-box loudspeakers are subject to severely reduced bass
output. Lower impedance within this critical frequency range means improved
acoustic sensitivity by exploiting your power amplifier's ability to deliver
more power to the bass frequencies. The net result for the OWM5's performance is
3dB more bass output over a fairly broad range.
Polypropylene Woofers: The speaker features two 4-1/2"
polypropylene cone woofers which employs Capacitive Coupling Bass Technology for
a low frequency response despite its size.
Silk Tweeter: The speaker has a 1" silk dome, Dynamic
Balance tweeter that provides clear, detailed highs.
Frequency Response Note: The overall frequency response is
60Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 80-22kHz.
Glass-filled ABS Cabinets: The acoustic suspension cabinet
features glass-filled ABS construction, which creates an acoustically inert
enclosure. The cabinet ensures an extremely clean midrange response with low
coloration. The speaker comes in a paintable black or white finish to blend
easily with any decor.
Binding Posts: The speaker has a set of gold-plated, 5-way
binding posts on the bottom of the angled rear panel. The binding posts will
accept bare wire, spade lugs, pin connectors, and single or dual banana plugs
(removal of binding post plugs required).
Multiple Mounting Options: The OWM5 is suited for on-wall
mounting or placement on a tabletop or shelf. The speaker has four 4-way keyhole
slots on the back, and come with rubber bumpers and an attachable base. There
are nine different mounting possibilities: vertical or wall horizontal wall
mount (using keyhole slots), vertical or horizontal shelf mounting (using
included base), vertical or horizontal corner wall mount (using included
bracket), horizontal ceiling mount (using included bracket), vertical 45-degree
wall mount (using included bracket), and wall-mounted with an optional
articulating wall-mount bracket (using the 1/4-20 threaded insert).
