Polk Audio Multiple-Application Compact Loudspeaker Pair
Just when you were about to give in to conventional thinking about where to locate your on-wall speakers, the OWM3 comes along and offers you seven new and different mounting options. The question is, what can't you do with a speaker that's this versatile? One thing you won't do is sacrifice any sort of performance standard. The OWM Series uses proprietary Capacitive Coupling Technology (CCT) to boost and smooth bass response, giving these compact, versatile speakers the dynamic performance specs of speakers 30% - 50% larger!

Versatile High Performance Sound, Anywhere in Your Home

Use the compact, high performance OWM3 to bolster your multi-zone home sound system. It can be an on-wall surround speaker for a compact home theater system in a small to mid-sized room. It can be part of a desktop stereo setup for extreme gaming or computer-based video applications. The OWM3 goes practically anywhere a speaker can go and does practically anything a speaker can do. That's how versatile the OWM3 is.

OWM3 Features:

More versatile mounting options than any other loudspeaker, with a modular, removable, switch-around base and built-in keyhole slots.

Mounting Options:

  1. Angled wall mount
  2. Corner mount
  3. Horizontal wall mount
  4. Vertical wall mount
  5. Shelf mount
  6. Horizontal shelf mount
  7. Use an optional articulating bracket (such as OmniMount 10.0 not included) for ceiling or swiveled wall use.

(If you can think of any more, please let us know!)

  • The OWM Series is timbre-matched to other Polk loudspeakers, so you can mix and match them to build or add to existing systems.
  • Dynamic Balance® composite cone drivers are lightweight and stiff, with excellent damping qualities, for high efficiency, excellent mid-bass and low distortion even at extreme volume levels.
  • Patented Dynamic Balance materials technology tunes out cone resonances before they become a part of the finished product, so you only hear the most realistic, natural audio reproduction.
  • Durable, high performance fabric dome tweeters deliver clear and detailed high frequency response and excellent imaging.
  • Capacitive Coupling Technology (CCT), an advanced signal-blocking technology that overcomes the usual limitations of small-enclosure loudspeakers (slim dynamics and no low frequency response), delivers extended dynamic range and enhancing deep bass response for clear, detailed musicality with little or no coloration.
  • Glass-filled ABS enclosure is super-dense and acoustically inert, ensuring an extremely clean and low coloration midrange response.
  • Paintable white finish blends into any decor.
  • 5-way gold-plated binding posts, for the best connections, are easily accessible no matter how you mount the speaker.
  • All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry's most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Rear Speakers

Pros: Speakers sounds is clear and beautiful. Size is perfect. Easy to set up. I have mine as a rear speakers. My setup is 4 tower speakers, center channel and two subs. I place this polk speakers on top of my rear tower speakers facing the sealing. The reason why I did it is because.... for example.. there is a helicopter on the movie and you can hear it coming on top of you. The sound hit the sealing and come right back down. The voices sound much better with these speakers also. I will buy them again. I recommend this speakers.

Cons: No cons... yet

Other Thoughts: Don't think about it like I did. And buy this speakers. If you like good sound like me. Buy it. You will not regret it.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my needs

Pros: - Exactly what I needed to finish off my system
- Mids and highs are clear and crisp
- Great quality to cost ratio
- Mounts easily

Cons: - Bigger than I anticipated (I should have read the description closer)

Other Thoughts: Used for 40% TV (mostly sports), 30% gaming, and 30% music. For music I switch to 2.1, so this review applies to TV / gaming only.
My system is Polk towers upfront, Polk 12" sub, Polk center and Polk surround (5.1) - driven by an Onkyo 5.1 receiver. I've been putting this together for about 1 year, as budget allows...
I have listened to many high end home theaters, some in excess of $10K, and this is not on that caliber... However, for an average Joe like myself, this meets my needs perfectly.
Don't expect these surrounds to match the quality of speakers that cost 4x as much... But unless you have the budget, a decent receiver and other components can really allow these speakers to shine.

5 out of 5 eggsLove these!

Pros: Compact, designed to work in multiple placements, crisp without being too sloppy on highs, light, solid.

Cons: A bit lacking on low mids, but with a decent sub its barely noticeable. I have seen people say they don't like these for music, but I disagree, to an extent. These are perfect for wide and rear surrounds. I am slowly building system, tried on front, do not recommend placing there, tho they work as a temporary solution there.

Other Thoughts: I am starting over with an Onkyo 7409, which I got a super deal on. These were my first purchase as replacement speakers, knowing they would eventually be my wide surround, because of odd room design these float in corners of room. Design is uniquely perfect for that situation, and the corner placement accentuates the mids, making these perfect floaters. In fact, I plan on replacing all my front and surrounds in my studio setting with these. Not the best by a long shot, but at the price, and if you have unique placement issues, I couldn't recommend anything else. Just make sure you have a decent sub for them.

3 out of 5 eggsok

Pros: mounting, nice tweets, upper mids

Cons: need a sub to mak-up some of the lower range mids to lows. it makes it hard to set the sub to were it hits hard and gets out of the way. like around 120hz. these need the sub set much higher 150-200-just my opinion.

Other Thoughts: nice for the price !

5 out of 5 eggsI know nothing about speakers

Pros: I'm using them as my surrounds in a 5.1 setup. Seem to work fine, and are pretty loud when they need to be. These completed my setup and seem pretty good for surround sound speakers. They can be mounted or displayed in many different positions.

Cons: Compact? They are nearly as tall as my Monitor 30's, luckily not so deep.

Other Thoughts: Big Tate the grills are removable. Mine came right off. Just pull a corner.

Also install speaker wire before installing the speakers' base. If you can spring for it, buy banana clips, they make installation so much easier. Also Buy more wire then you think you need. I needed 100 feet for a small room setup. The rear speakers alone used over 50 just so I could run the cables without them being seen.

2 out of 5 eggsok butttt................

Pros: Mountable, Designed for quality and accurate reproduction of uppermids if you have small speakers for the front of your room these are for you.

Cons: No lower mids, small mid driver,
Got this for the back of my living room and regret it very much. It made my harman receiver work harder and drew power from my main channels.

Other Thoughts: Ok if you have all small channels or the same speaker and let the sub take over from 80hz down

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for their size

Pros: Great clarity in highs and mids for the size of the speaker.

Easy to install and remove stand, which makes for versatile placement.

Screw-down connectors which are much better than the spring clip types.

Cons: Obviously the low end is nearly non-existant. But this is due to their compact size.

The cover screen is non-removable which I didn't like. I remove the grill/screens from all of my speakers to allow the full range of sound to be heard. These grills/screens typically muffle the sound slightly, but to a trained ear significantly enough to merit their removal.

Other Thoughts: For rear speakers these are fantastic! Newegg is always the way to go for everything!

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Great sound for the price.

Cons: Could have used more info. on the specs. They where higher then expected for a limited space placement, but still was able to make them work thanks to them having multiple ways to make stand.
