Think of the new Polk Audio OWM5 as the “Swiss army knife” of speakers. You can use them in virtually any configuration in any room in your home. The unique trapezoidal design and removable base allow for seven different mounting options, enough for all possibilities. Weighing a mere 4 pounds each, you can put a pair virtually anywhere. Wedged in a corner, on a wall, ceiling or flat surface, the possibilities are endless! You can use them as the main speakers of your theater system, or auxiliary speakers for a music system. With so many mounting options available, you can wire your entire house full of OWM5 speakers and enjoy great Polk sound everywhere.
The OWM5 offers no less than nine useful options to mount and install them. Use them for Left, Center or Right channel applications in a small home theater or as part of an existing Polk Audio installation (they’re timbre-matched for smooth integration into Polk Audio systems). The OWM5 is also equally capable of being part of a 2.1 2nd zone system, or as a multi-channel surround system. The OWM5’s specially curved design, removable base and corner wall-mount bracket make it easy to locate virtually anywhere.
Both OWM Series Speakers Feature:
- Elegant, Ergonomic Design & Multiple Mounting Options—Aflat, elegantly curved trapezoid that weighs a mere 4-pounds, OWM Speakers are benchmarks of go-anywhere, do-anything versatility. Multiple built-in keyhole slots, a threaded insert, scratchless rubber feet and the flip-around removable base/mounting plate give you more mounting and installing options than any other speaker this size. We count at least NINE ways you can place this speaker in your setup. If you discover more, email us and tell us!
- Capacitive Coupling Technology—The OWM Series exploits the usual shortcomings of small enclosures with radical and innovative technology. CCT enhances the speaker’s low frequency performance by multitudes of decibels. It results in over 3dB more bass output in the OWM Series, even at lifelike volume levels; delivering the bass output of a speaker 30 to 50% larger!
- Glass-Filled ABS Enclosure—What separates the men from the boys when it comes to smaller speakers? Only the men can eliminate that hollow “plastic trashcan sound” with superior construction. The OWM Series features a space-age polymer enclosure of dense, Glass-Filled ABS with built-in internal bracing (the same Military Spec technology used in the Polk Audio Atrium Series). This acoustically inert enclosure insures crystal clear midrange response coupled with detailed highs and surprisingly dynamic lows, with little or no coloration. Paint your white OWM Speaker to match or add contrast to any decor.
- Dynamic Balance Composite Cone Drivers—Dynamic Balance laser imaging technology allows Polk engineers to literally tune out the elements that cause distortion in a speaker cone, resulting in a lightweight but stiff material that delivers excellent midrange detail and superior dynamic clarity.
- 5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts—Well-placed for easy, secure connections with bare wire, spade lugs, banana plugs or pins.
Why They Rock: Capacitive Coupling Technology
Slim and stylish, with the ability to mount horizontally, vertically and any way in between, you’d be flat out wrong if you lumped the OWM Series into a catch-all any-speaker category. Exclusive Polk Audio technologies like Dynamic Balance cone materials and advanced ABS enclosure construction deliver the professional sound you expect, clear and detailed, with little coloration even in unlikely installation locations.
Most impressive is a next-generation of Capacitive Coupling Technology that enhances the bass performance of the OWM Series Speakers. Simply put, CCT is an advanced signal-blocking technology that determines exactly where a conventional sealed-enclosure speaker of this size and weight usually skimps on bass output. Special circuitry in the OWM Speaker then compensates with lower impedance in this critical frequency range. More bass response means a wider dynamic range with more musical realism.
In fact, better sound than any speaker in its class!
