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.

4 out of 5 eggsDoesn't come with mounting hardware

Pros: I decided to purchase the OWM3 because of what looked like great deal on newegg a couple days ago. Even though im not really into Polk Audio, i said to myself, the price is right and i just needed 2 more surrounds to complete my 7.1 surround. I read the favorable reviews and saw that it can be mounted multiples ways which is what i needed.

Cons: Not to be a downer here, but to my disappointment i was surprised that it didn't come with mounting hardware. It does come with a base/stand. Most of the pics even on the polk site shows the speaker on the wall but guess what? you have to buy the mounting hardware separately.

Other Thoughts: I can't really comment soundwise because i haven't mounted and listened to it yet

5 out of 5 eggsYou can always count on POLK!

Pros: Excellent sound quality, easy install, numerous mounting options, price and Polk's usual high quality components.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I needed some rear surrounds and I was just waiting for one of these "3 days only" type sales on these speakers. I've been looking at them for quite a while and the opportunity came up. These speakers rock! They completely fill the back half of the room so now I have full surround. Highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggsversatile speakers

Pros: Used for my computer 7.1 surround system with the aid of a cheap amplifier and it works great.

Cons: Installation no cables are included or power supply. Had to become an expert in audio making. However the back connectors really speed up the connections which is a positive feature

Other Thoughts: Would recommend this speakers. They can even work as a stand alone unit. Provide more than enough volume for regular shores.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Surround Speakers

Pros: Great sound for the price! I got mine on super sale so that helps too. Added these to my existing 5.1 setup to get 7.1 I noticed a huge difference, especially after recalibrating my (old) Harmon/Kardon AVR 240 receiver. My stereo is finally complete!

Cons: Wasn't free

Other Thoughts: The package says these are paintable (mine were white) I may paint one of the black sine it is on a dark wall. The other one is on a white wall and is all but invisible at a glance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for wall or ceiling

Pros: Very clear, accurate sound for a small wall or ceiling mounted speaker. Good value for the price. They are perfect surround speakers to compliment other Polks at front and center. I was considering Monitor 40s at the rear since a friend has a setup with these, but my wife wanted something more out-of-the-way than bookshelf speakers on stands at the back of the room. I decided to mount these to the ceiling instead, and I definitely believe they sound at least as good as the Monitors would in my space (12 x 18 ft rec room).

Cons: There's a little mid-range sibilance that seems to be a common feature of all the entry-level Polk speakers if you drive them loud.

Also, there's not much on the low-end of these. They're fantastic for rear surround satellites, and they also sound great by themselves if you have at least a small sub to pair them with, but without a sub you're definitely not going to get much bass.

Other Thoughts: My home theater is Monitor 70s in the front, a CS2 center channel, a PSW505 and these OWM3's. The speakers are definitely more on the budget end of the spectrum for a non-HTIB setup, but they all look and sound a lot more expensive than they are. The OWM3's do a more than adequate job of keeping up with the big front and center speakers in a 5.1 configuration.

Before I hooked them up to the HT, I hooked them up through the subwoofer to a stereo amp and was really impressed. They were more clear and detailed in the mids and highs than the Monitor 70's are. Overall, they are a great performing little speaker given the price and shape / size of the enclosure.
