Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeE Great sounding speakers
I have had my pair of Atrium 6 speakers for about a 1 1/2 years. They are located on my patio about 10ft up tucked under the eves and approx. 20ft apart.
These speaker are as advertised and better. When I have guests over and we are out back I receive compliments all the time on how good the music sounds. Great job Polk.
By the way I just purchase a pair of Atrium 5 for my spa area I will let you know how I make out.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Richardson Rating I should have reaziled i'd get what i paid for. these subs are rated for 500w a piece. I bought a high end infinity 1000w mono amp with built in fan at best buy to power these which should be more than adequate to power these subs. however, they hit like i've got them hooked to a 300w amp. these subs are POWER HOGS. i'm guessing it would at least 1500w to power them like normal subs but all the extra work and $ you would have to put in to make these perform correctly, you could get some higher end subs instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert I got these to replace some Yamaha NS-AW350's outside. I got some great help from Polk tech support who answered by questions pre buy. The Atrium 6 met my needs and budget. The sound is much clearer, and the biggest improvement has been in the bass the Polk's provide over my previous speakers. These are outside wall mounted under the roof overhang for a 20x20 deck and are hooked up to a basic 100 per channel receiver. So far highs to lows sound good for a speaker this size. I looked a few other speakers in stores and online, but I found these at a great price and they were the best bang for the buck. Installation was easy, 2 screws per bracket and snap the speaker in place basically. The sound is easily heard over the whole deck. I look forward to enjoying these for a long time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by J. Sully I bought the atrium 5 when they first came out. I was looking for Bose outdoor speakers at the time. I went to Fry's in Alpharetta, Ga. I was in the speaker room and started listening to all the outdoor speakers. I cranked up the Bose and a few others. After listening, I found out that Polk had a better sound! I'm currently trying to finish my back patio with overhang porch, I do have the speakers out in the garage and the sound quality matches Bose!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tim K These sound excellent. Fill up a large back yard completely and crystal clear, with just the right amount of thump. If you are reading this then all you need to decide is which new Atrium to get, so don't wait any longer. Thank you Polk Audio for putting out excellent products. I will never buy another speaker from a different maker ever. wOw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill M. Best value outdoor speaker for the money without exception! I have not been able to experience the bigger Polk outdoor speakers but I dont think they could be much better than these.
