Summary: I needed to replace two old outdoor speakers around the pool, and I had a doubt about buying a different brand. So far I don't regret it, these speakers sound even much better than the ones I had before( a very well known Brand)the sound of highs and lows are crystal clear. Bass is not bad, but it helps to the sound coming out of them. Polk Audio Atrium 45, love them. I would recommend them to a friend.
Defective product, terrible service, what else matters?

Summary: Sorry to pan these 'cause they sound great and look good but they aren't waterproof and that is unacceptable. I bought a pair three years ago and two more pairs a year later. After the first summer, that's only 5 months outside, one was full of water. After the second summer another was flooded. Both were replaced by Polk but only after a real struggle. This in spite of registering my purchases with them as required.
Simply the best speakers for outdoor applications money can buy.

Summary: Excellent speakers, the last set of Polk Audio Atrium 45’s lasted for 11 years on my boat. You cannot find a better set of speakers that can withstand the marine environment and provide crystal clear sound.
Summary: My son purchased polk audio speakers for his deck. We were impressed with the quality. I boubht a set for my husband for x-mas. He was elated! The only problem was it arrived without a cover box...so, knew what it was. I will recommend these speakers to others.
Excellent sound reproduction for its size. Great value.

Summary: Polk Audio affords a great value product for what you receive in sound reproduction. I have multiple pair at locations in my home, garage, outdoor patio, as well as three outdoor pair at my summer home. I've also convinced other family members as to their quality and value. Our featured products are the Atrium 55's (1 pr.) and 45's (5 pr).
Summary: Got these speakers about a year ago and decided to finally review the "outdoor" speakers. In a nutshell they speakers are sic! I love them and they sound just as good as they did when I purchased them. I live in Florida, so the abuse of hot humid weather should have taken it's toll but they are performing great. Stop reading the reviews and just buy them you will not be sorry.
Summary: I love polk speakers. They were a breeze to install, highly durable and customizable. I wasnt too thrilled with the sound quality though, big surprise there for real. Either that or the amp is too strong. Not sure which. Ive got them outside on the patio hooked up to the HTR 6030 from yamaha.
My tone-impaired ears could not appreciate any better.

Summary: I replaced a set of Bose that had given in to the elements over time. This were much less expensive and I think just as good as the Bose were in their younger days. I would ask for any better sound than I am getting from these speakers. They live in a tough salt water environment and seem to be thriving, and giving us a lot of listening enjoyment. I will buy another set soon for another outdoor location.
