Great sound and very well built. Much better than the competition in this price range.

Summary: Best bang for the buck in high quality, high fidelity, outdoor speakers. I prefer these to offerings from Bose and Definitive Technology. Sounds as good or better than both of these other brands but is more reasonably priced. Very well built. Polk may not have the same name caché as Def Tech, but they more than deliver in sound quality and engineering.
Good sound...a little larger in size than I would have liked.

Summary: I purchased these speakers to replace the Bose speakers that were old and blown and that hung off the posts on our deck. I ordered two sets. One speaker out of the four was already blown for some reason. So we had to dismantle the set and send it back, which was a little bit of a hassle, but not the fault of the Polk product, but either of UPS or Amazon...not sure which.
Summary: I liked these speakers so much we bought them a second time. Had to leavey first pair at the house that I had just sold as the buyer had made this request. Bought the new pair within a month of moving into new house. Love the sound from these speakers - great value and much more durable than the set of Boston Acoustics (comparable model) that I had previously.
Summary: Sound quality is as good as I had hoped. Price was reasonable. Didn't realize how delicate the screen was and bent it when placing on the speaker. I think it should be made stronger, especially for an outdoor product. Still, I am the only one that notices the crease in the screen... but it still bothers me everytime I use the speakers.
Summary: These were hung on the wall in our house. They are nice looking and sound good. I do wish the logo was able to be flipped as someone mentioned below. I hung mine from the celieing and the logo is upside down.
Summary: I purchased the Polk Atrium 5's for my 3-car garage (fairly good size with 10' ceilings) so I'd have music while working there and in the driveway. While the speakers did not need to be waterproof I figured it was best to keep the spiders and bugs out and to handle the temperature swings of a Wisconsin year.
Summary: I installed these out in our garden area about four months ago, and have been enjoying them. People will complain that there's not much bass -- but in reality, it takes more than a little speaker like this to make bass outside, in open air... That said, I think they sound wonderful given the price and size. The ease in which you can rotate them on the brackets is another bonus, so I can direct them towards the yard, or towards the patio where the fire pit is...
Summary: I love crisp, clear, high end--love hearing the high hat, brushes on the cymbals (think Miles's "So What?") Have a Carver amp and Infinite Slope speakers, Polks, Boston Acoustic etc. None of that "natural" KEF sound for me--I really need to hear the high end, not just bass and midrange. Well, I bought the Atrium 5s and hooked them up to my 200 W Adcom amp with a preamp, and they deliver beautiful mids and lows.
Great little speakers, but definitely need a good sub!

Summary: I purchased the RM95 set knowing ahead of time that they required a good subwoofer and a lot of tweaking in order to obtain optimal performance for both HT and 2.1 uses. For starters, the speakers themselves are really sleek looking and sound terrific when the crossover frequency of my Yamaha RXV-765 receiver is set to approx. 100hz.
Summary: I'm a little disappointed with the Polk Atrium 6 indoor/outdoor speakers bass performance. I mounted these speakers close under my patio eaves (with one speaker in a corner as well) to "improve" bass performance according to the instructions, but I must say the bass performance on these speakers is mediocre at best--although what can one realistically expect from a 6" woofer in a small cabinet. Other than that, I like the speakers and the mounting hardware design.
