Summary: The Polk Audio Atrium speakers sound great and are very easy to mount. This is my second set for my deck and backyard. While I could crank up the first set loud enough for my listening pleasure, my neighbors were enjoying the music as well. The second set allows me to keep the volume lower.
Pros: Sound great at all volumes. With Sonos control, I have full access from my phone while enjoying the outdoors.
Summary: I had accumulated some gift cards so I went looking to replace my budget backyard speakers which I was never very happy with. I decided on the Atrium 6`s over the Klipsch,Bose & Def Tech`s in the same price range due to the positive reviews and the smaller physical size made them the least intrusive...
Pros: Excellent Polk voiced speakers, Ported bass, Simple, very efficient mounting design.
Summary: bought a pair of atrium 6 outdoor speakers to use at my mountain cabin. spent part of an afternoon mounting them underneath the front porch. the mounting brackets were very easy to install. the speakers fit snuggly into the brackets and the speaker lock nuts were "easy on" securing devices.
Pros: easy installation. very large and easy to use speaker (to bracket) "lock nuts". top notch audio sound quality.
Summary: I purchased the speakers for my deck under the advise of a friend who had Atrium3 speakers in his garage. I already had Sonos throughout the house and have been more the impressed with the sound and versatility of the system.
Pros: Both Sonos and Poke provide ease of operation and versatility with amazing sound.
Cons: None. The Sonos Amp is a little more money then I would of liked to of spent. However, the versatility of Sonos is unmatched by a key pad and a dual receiver combination; which would be much more expensive (with unmatched capabilities) then the Sonos Amp and Poke combination.
Summary: Great sound but for us, a little too much bass. It just wasn't balanced in my opinion. We live in a neighborhood and with the sound adjusted to hear the mids and highs at the appropriate level there was just too much bass and that's the part that really carried a distance and might be annoying to...
