    Product Research

    System Components: The Polk Audio RM85 home theater speaker system is a 5-channel speaker system that includes two identical wide dispersion array satellites, two direct radiating satellite speakers and a matching center channel speaker.

    Additional Speakers: If you wish to use the RM85 for a 6 or 7channel surround sound system, you can purchase an additional 107RM7CB/107RM8CB single center channel speaker or 107RM7B/107RM8B satellite speakers to fill out your speaker requirements.

    Driver Technology

    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.

    Center Channel Speaker (Center): The RM85's center channel speaker consists of two 2-1/2" dynamic balance composite cone drivers and a 3/4" silk/polymer composite dome tweeter for full-bodied sound.

    Wide Dispersion Array Satellites (Fronts): The RM85's wide dispersion array satellite speakers create a more enveloping, less localizable surround effect because the speakers drivers are mounted on opposing baffles for a broader and larger front-stage sound field and a more immersive and atmospheric surround field. The speaker features 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.

    Direct Radiating Satellites (Surrounds): The RM85's direct radiating satellite speakers consist of one 2-1/2 dynamic balance composite cone drivers and a 1/2" dynamic balance composite semi-dome tweeter for distortion free and smooth sound.

    Enclosure Design

    Enclosure: The RM85 satellite speakers and center channel feature an acoustic suspension, non-resonant composite enclosure with a high-gloss black finish 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 sound.

    Connections

    Speaker Terminals: The spring clip terminals located on the rear of the direct radiating satellite speakers and center channel and on the bottom of the array satellite speakers will accept pin connectors and bare wire.

    Mounting Options

    Video Shielded: The RM85 satellite speakers and center channel are magnetically (or video) shielded for safe placement near your TV or computer monitor without causing picture interference.

    Mounting Options: The RM85 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. The RM85 direct radiating satellite speakers can be placed on a shelf or table top without a stand due to their flat base. The satellite speakers can also be wall mounted using the supplied wall mount brackets which allow the speakers to swivel horizontally. In addition, the RM85 satellite speakers are compatible with Polk's SA-3 floor speaker-stands. The RM85 center channel can be placed on a shelf or table top with the supplied mounting stand and can be angled up or down. The center channel speaker can also be wall mounted using the supplied wall mount bracket. The center channel's fixed wall mount bracket does not angle or swivel.
