Polk Audio Atrium 45

 

Polk Audio has a variety of high-quality audio products. A number of their external audio systems have made it into our review. The Polk Audio Atrium 45 , however, is the least impressive outdoor

The Polk Audio Atrium 45 all-weather outdoor loudspeaker has a rugged design

It has a limited frequency response and a low sensitivity rating

There are better Polk Audio outdoor speakers than this one.

Not just for Outdoors

 

I did a side by side comparison against my normal front speakers, a pair of "vintage" Celestion SL-6 's. The Celestion was better, but not by a lot...and they cost a lot more than these when I bought them new in the late 80's.

I got 2 pair of these to use as my 7.1 surround system speakers (on sale at the Egg). Considering price per performance I think they're pretty hard to beat. The bracket worked well for mounting them to the ceiling, I didn't have to go searching for mounts

Yes, they're a little brighter than you might like for a set of front speakers, but not that bad considering price and size. I just used them as my back 4 surround speakers for a 7.1 system. As all the other reviews say...yeah they're a little bright...

Polk support is outstanding. I had also purchased a set of Atrium 55 speakers, and left in the box for a future install. When I openned the box, I found that one of the speakers had a broken baffle. I called Polk, and a new speaker and baffle assembly...

For the price, these speakers cannot be beat. They install easily, look good, and perform well for their size

Bass is somewhat weak, but that should be expected, based upon the size of the product

Pretty Good

 

They sound good, especially for their small size and the outdoor protections

They don't sound as good as the similarly-priced Monitor30. That isn't to say they sound bad. These are quality Polk speakers. They just aren't as good as the Monitor 30

pretty good

 

pair these up with a decent sub and they sound complete

with the discount on black friday they were great buy, not sure if I would pay the regular price, they are quite bright sounding, nice high and crisp ; the other good side is they are not that large, but that is there drawback at the same time

the bass is lacking, having 2 zone option, I had the regular sound system on with 400-600 sub, and then they sounded nice, so they are great if you can pare them with a decent outdoor sub and you will have more quality then you care for outdoors

Sneaky EGG!!!

 

Either way Polk is a great speaker, customer support is %100 great, I have about $4000 in my Polk surround speakers and had 1 warranted without a problem. I will mount the speakers around my pool this summer and will revise my review of their performance.

Been wanting this item for a while now, at $199.00 was going to hold off. THEN I get a mass e-mail saying the speakers are on sale 1 day only for $69.00, Wow that's what I said better get them while I can..I feel suckered, lol the same speakers are on...

none at this time

Polk Audio Atrium 45 All-Weather Speaker, Black Finish (Pair)

 

I purchased these speakers to mount outdoors, under my permanently camped 31' travel trailer. I am very pleased with the sound quality and am surprised at how good the bass response is. Don't get me wrong, you won't mistake these speakers for a 15"...

These speakers sound great for the price. I've only had them for a little over a month so i have no idea how long they will hold up or if they will make it through the winter.

Folks, let's not get overheated here. The reviews salivating over this product are a bit long on hyperbole and bit short on perspective. For some perspective, let me say that I ran my white Polk 45s on the B channel of an NAD receiver, with a pair of...

Installed on the outside of our barn to project sound to our riding ring. Crystal clear across 150 Feet! We'll see how well they weather the winter... because once you get them, the manual tells you to not have them outside despite the fact that they...
