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.
Summary: Excellent speakers for my use: indoor back surround speakers providing great bass and sound in general. I demoed he atrium 4 and decided to go for the "6" to have greater bass presence and I am definitely satisfied.
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.
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.
Summary: This speaker system sounds excellent but the binding post springs tension are inadequate to hold the wire. i will have to come fix or modify the binder to ressolve this problem. inspite of this would keep it because of its phenominal performance & low price...
