general information

Key Features at a Glance

  • A complete 5.1 home theater speaker system that includes four RM7 Satellite speakers, a RM7C center channel and a powered subwoofer.
  • The 8-inch downward firing powered subwoofer is small enough to be discretely hidden away yet powerful enough to put you in the action.
  • Heavy-duty, non-resonant composite enclosures create the ideal décor accent.
  • Three-sided cabinet design minimizes the visual impact on walls and shelves.
  • All RM speakers come in an elegant black high-gloss finish.
  • Accessories include flexible wall brackets for all speakers and shelf cradle for center channel.

Reuleaux Triangular Polygon Shaped Enclosure

These stunning little speakers are a sophisticated work of acoustic alchemy. With Reuleaux Triangular Polygon shaped enclosures, these speakers not only are pretty cool but also extremely strong. Moreover, the speakers' geometry is acoustically ideal for minimizing resonances and standing waves inside the speaker. This eliminates the "boominess" that makes other small speakers sound "muddy", and delivers superior midrange performance and lifelike imaging.

Composite Driver Technology

Working in tandem with the shape of the compact enclosures are specially engineered drivers made from strong composite materials. Polk Audio's exclusive Dynamic Balance technology scientifically tunes these driver materials to produce an excellent flat frequency response, with revealing detail, transparent imaging and the ability to play loud without strain, something you won't find in other small speaker systems. RM sound is always clean, clear and effortless.

Anti-Diffraction Baffle

Exhaustively tested and modeled to produce the sophisticated acoustic sculpting, the anti-diffraction baffle delivers the largest possible dispersion pattern with virtually no edge diffraction or distortion. The wide, lifelike soundstage proves that you can have small speakers without sacrificing big sound.

Powerful Bass Blending

The compact 50-watt powered subwoofer features an 8" long-throw dynamic balance poly composite driver. The long driver excursion and excellent linearity produce big, musical bass. A built-in power amp with active crossover offers the control you need for real home theater thrills.

Multiple Mounting Options

Put them on the TV stand. Put the center channel speaker right on the TV. Put them on stands next to the TV. Hang the speakers on the walls. Use articulating brackets to aim them perfectly. The RM 705 satellites weigh just 3 lbs., so you can put them virtually anywhere and move them easily.

Great Brand, Amazing Value, Nice Entry Level System 8/29/2017 6:23:31 AM

Pros: -Can't beat the Polk brand quality for the price! They were only $149!
-Not your audiophile system, but a very high quality set up for those seeking quality surround sound.
-Small speakers but big sound. Fills my 13' x 20' family room.
-Nice looking set up.

Cons: -Sub-woofer did not include a cable.
-Speakers take small gauge wire. Use 16G and they sound just fine.
-Newegg charged me shipping when it was listed a "free shipping". Ordered via my iPhone and shipping defaulted to 3-day even though I get ground shipments in 1 day.

Overall Review: I coupled these with a Harmon Kardon AVR-1610S (only $189 on Newegg) which created a very nice entry level sound system for $338. Just a much more versatile and high quality system than a sound bar and you can't use the speakers on today's TV's.

If you can get these at $250 (or less) it's a steal! I really just needed 2 surround speakers to complete my 7.1 setup. Some places sell an individual Polk surround speaker for $100+ 8/10/2017 9:15:15 AM

Pros: Great sound. Punchy. Give them some time to adjust.

Cons: Had to adjust my stands & bracket backwards to hold the speakers. Not really a con, only thing I could think of .

Overall Review: I later set all speakers up and kept 2 previous speakers as surround backs. Be sure to give them some time to adjust. At first to me they sounded very dull even after eq adjust. After about 5 days of music and TV they just kicked in. Highs/lows were spot on. Mids were good too. 10x better than my previous Yamaha SP1800BL. Probably one of the best mid range surround speaker packages you can buy imo. Thanks New Egg!

Bang > x < Buck - Great value and they look good. 8/3/2017 11:29:56 AM

Pros: Best bang for buck period. Mid-level surround sound for entry-level price. Do it.

Paired with a cheaper Yamaha 5.1 receiver and it's very nice for the money, clear sound and it gets louder than I'd ever need.

Cons: The speakers like a thinner speaker wire, I used 16 AWG and it was about as thick as you'd be able to use. Small wire ports.

The power/auto/off switch on the back of the sub was loose and a little flaky but it works and I leave it alone.
For a quick minute I thought the sub was dead but a little futzing with the switch and it's fine.

Doesn't include a 5.1 receiver or speaker wire but maybe that's a plus.

Like all speakers they have a sweet spot in range/volume that you have to adjust for.

Overall Review: Polk is a quality brand.

Looking forward to their arrival 5/6/2017 5:56:05 PM

Pros: Great price on purchase. Should allow for good sound without taking up too much space.

Cons: So far none to speak of.

Overall Review: One thing to keep in mind, as I found last night, check out their e bay store too. A receiver that I was going to order on Newegg.com was $50 less to purchase from the Newegg e bay store than their own website. I am a loyal Newegg customer and also purchase my electronics from their site and until now have felt that I was getting a good deal (these speakers at the price I just paid here was one of those good deals) but if I had proceeded with the purchase of the receiver, I would have been out another $50. I still bought from Newegg, but saved a good bit of money. I guess this is a lesson that no matter how good you feel about a deal on here; shop around, you never know when Newegg has a better deal online than their own website. I do love Newegg either way.

Pros: Excellent sound quality

Cons: None

Overall Review: I was originally unsure of purchasing a setup like this as I am used to tower speakers etc. This is probably the best investment I've made for my home theatre system.

Newegg Rocks (With Deals)! 7/19/2010 8:33:24 AM

Pros: The Polk Audio RM705 5.1’s, are a deal at ($249). They deliver sweet-clear sound driven with my little Yamaha RX V367. This receiver sounds the best it ever has, I’ve never had anything get this loud and maintain this level of accuracy and clearness. Only time can give the final verdict. The speaker enclosures are rock solid and have a nice quality look. NEWEGG delivered the product quickly, on time and apparently in an unopened box which is a plus-plus for them aside the good price! I’ll quote another member describing newegg on his evaluation of a product: he wrote: “NEWEGG ROCKS.” Hey Newegg! You should think about using that one for a logo on your site folks, its catching!

Cons: The only complaint I have is with the audio industry neglect to find a plug-in method for all speaker wiring. The spring clips are far to much hassle especially with fine wire cable, why they stopped with the front speaker connections on the receiver is baffling.

Overall Review: Also my house does not offer anything near the best conditions for sound reproduction. It has a ceramic tile floor in a huge open space, but no problem for the RM‘s. I did have to use the separate speaker adjustments in the receiver.

Price.. 7/17/2010 6:44:53 PM

Pros: I've owned Polka speakers before and I love them, great quality for the price.

Cons: I just really wanted to point out something that reall bothered me.. For what ever reason they cost an extra 150 bucks to buy if you are using the Canadian newegg compared to the American one.. Which is the only thing preventing me from buying these. I simply do not understand how the price could be so different.. In theory it's because they weigh so much and that'd increase the cost of shipping, but that's not it.. So, what is the reason for that? I don't get it..

Overall Review: If there wasn't a senseless 150 dollars added to the price-tag for Canadians, I'd totally be buying two sets of these babies.. One for my room and one for the family room.
