About the Polk Audio OWM5

Polk's versatile OWM5 puts serious speaker technology in a compact package. Its clean, clear sound can add life to stereo and surround sound systems. Fortify your TV with three OWM5s for a powerful front soundstage. Thanks to its slender cabinet and dual-woofer design, you can position the OWM5 vertically or horizontally. The dialogue and special effects in your movies, video games, and TV shows will come through with punch and clarity like never before.

The dialogue and special effects in your movies, video games, and TV shows will come through with punch and clarity like never before.

The OWM5's slim, uniquely curved design and removable base give you plenty of placement options, including on-wall or corner mounting for a clean, out-of-the-way installation. But its small size doesn't stop this speaker from delivering impressively spacious sound. Polk's Dynamic Balance® drivers resist resonance that can cause distortion — you'll notice detail that makes every listening experience more lifelike and enjoyable.

For thrilling surround sound, use a total of five, six, or seven OWM5s with a multi-channel home theater receiver. Or for a smaller rear satellite option, add a pair of Polk OWM3 speakers to your OWM5 front soundstage setup. A Polk powered subwoofer can give you great bass to round out your sound. You can also use a pair of OWM5s in your kitchen, den, hallway, or bedroom to enjoy music wherever you wander in your house.

More details on the Polk Audio OWM5

Product Research

Overview: The Polk Audio OWM5 is a versatile speaker made to fit a variety of applications. The speaker can be used as a Front left, Front right or center-channel speaker, as a complete home theater system, or as 5.1, 6.1, or 7.1 surround channel speakers.

Note: The Polk Audio OWM5 is sold individually.

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.

Capacitive Coupling Bass Technology: Capacitive Coupling Technology (CCT) works by creating a gentle impedance dip within the range where conventional sealed-box loudspeakers are subject to severely reduced bass output. Lower impedance within this critical frequency range means improved acoustic sensitivity by exploiting your power amplifier's ability to deliver more power to the bass frequencies. The net result for the OWM5's performance is 3dB more bass output over a fairly broad range.

Polypropylene Woofers: The speaker features two 4-1/2" polypropylene cone woofers which employs Capacitive Coupling Bass Technology for a low frequency response despite its size.

Silk Tweeter: The speaker has a 1" silk dome, Dynamic Balance tweeter that provides clear, detailed highs.

Frequency Response Note: The overall frequency response is 60Hz-25kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 80-22kHz.

Enclosure Design

Glass-filled ABS Cabinets: The acoustic suspension cabinet features glass-filled ABS construction, which creates an acoustically inert enclosure. The cabinet ensures an extremely clean midrange response with low coloration. The speaker comes in a paintable black or white finish to blend easily with any decor.

Connections

Binding Posts: The speaker has a set of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts on the bottom of the angled rear panel. The binding posts will accept bare wire, spade lugs, pin connectors, and single or dual banana plugs (removal of binding post plugs required).

Mounting Options

Multiple Mounting Options: The OWM5 is suited for on-wall mounting or placement on a tabletop or shelf. The speaker has four 4-way keyhole slots on the back, and come with rubber bumpers and an attachable base. There are nine different mounting possibilities: vertical or wall horizontal wall mount (using keyhole slots), vertical or horizontal shelf mounting (using included base), vertical or horizontal corner wall mount (using included bracket), horizontal ceiling mount (using included bracket), vertical 45-degree wall mount (using included bracket), and wall-mounted with an optional articulating wall-mount bracket (using the 1/4-20 threaded insert).
