To some it may appear to be a pricey system for an outdoor porch but it sounds great.

FRANK MATONIS, Amazon

  • Summary: Hooked this subwoofer up in parallel with a pair if Polk Atrium 4 speakers. The natural roll off of the subwoofer and the satellites blend perfectly. To some it may appear to be a pricey system for an outdoor porch but it sounds great.

Waste of money

Douglas V., Amazon
16 June 2014
  • Summary: I had a hard time rating between 1-2 stars. I love the idea of this unit. However, Polk should really consider how to place/market it. It costs the same as a powered unit. IT is not (and I knew that going in). The materials act like you can give this its own channel - which was my preference. Good luck. The ohms load is so low - it trips my amp. That means it does not work (or at least play music) IF you are considering - know this...

Atrium 10

RBx, Crutchfield
20 May 2013
  • Summary: These can be an excellent solution if you're looking to round out an exterior system on the lows and mid-lows. If you're looking for a bone rattling ultra-low frequency sub, find a powered one that can handle the outdoors. Made to be coupled as a single with satellite speakers, the passive Atrium 10's can really shine if a little thought it is put into their use.
  • Pros: An excellent solution for me to round out the lows and mid-lows and add an overall "richness" to my outdoor sound.
  • Cons: Be prepared to tweak things to get the sound you want in your specific application - adding volume control and/or using a pair - especially when using with other brand speakers.

It took 2, but they sound great

Tim, Crutchfield
18 May 2013
  • Summary: I have a double deck consisting of (2) 16x20 decks with a step down between. I have the larger Def Tech speakers on the house and they sound great, but you lose the base as you are on the lower deck so I thought I'd try this. It arrived 18hrs after I ordered it (amazing). At first I wasn't happy and thought perhaps it was defective. They quickly sent me another, but it sounded the same. Something made me hook them both up parallel and WOW. What a difference.
  • Pros: Superior outdoor sound quality, paintable
  • Cons: Took 2 of them to get the sound I was looking for, crossover setting a little high for my taste in Sub bass.

Pold Atrium sub10

philip c, Crutchfield
23 January 2013
  • Summary: Good sounding base, but was unaware it required an amp to function and also requires both left and right inputs. I was planning to use the sons sub output single lead.
  • Pros: Good base response,
  • Cons: Should come with a grill to protect speaker from elements and varmints. It appears to be available as an option. Requires âmp to drive. they should offer a powered unit for outdoors.

Polk Atrium Sub Met My Needs--Perfectly

Noodlebluesman "Tony", Amazon
24 October 2012
  • Summary: Connected and adjusted amplifier output with dedicated L&R channels through a Russound SDB 6.1 to match with 4 Bic America Adatto Dv52Si Adatto Indoor/Outdoor Speakers (Black) satellites of higher efficiency. Easy to hook-up and looks great underneath one of many terracotta patio planters. Sounds great at even low listening levels--not too "punchy.
