      Answer

      I sent an email asking Polk Audio this same question. The answer..."The patio 200 and Atrium 5 are the same, the grills are a little different but that is it. The patio 200s are limited release" which is why they cost less.

        What is the difference between 2 way and 3 way speakers besides the price   (3 Answers)

          Answer

          Two way speakers have two speakers, three way have three. The third speaker in a three way system handles the middle range of sounds, typically voices. Well constructed two way systems can handle most sound, but typically don't handle the lowest tones. That's the reason for having the midrange speaker because the woofer in most three ways can't handle mid frequencies effectively and still produce the bass it is intended to. Trade off is typically having less low frequency capabilities.

          Can anyone recommend a brand/set of banana plugs that actually fit these speakers? The angle/depth on the terminals is so tight that I haven't been able to find a pair that fit. Thanks!   (2 Answers)

            You can just cut the end off and strip the wire ends. Then unscrew the connectors on the speakers, insert the wires underneath the connector then tighten the connectors again.

              No an aux line will not work. These are not self powered speakers so you will have to run soeaker wire from the receiver.

              If you use a home theater receiver for amplification then you can use these. However, very few people do. Computers generally use plugs with connections that look like the headphone jack of a cellphone or mp3 player. (3.5 MM). These speakers need amplification and a pc does not provide it. A good pc speaker is the Klipsch Promedia 2.1. Link below. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/klipsch-promedia-2-1-bluetooth-speaker-system-3-piece-black/4924200.p?skuId=4924200

                I don't know if they will install them up high on 2 story but I know they installed ours in our patio. It will prob have to be covered. Ours were about 7-8 feet up, they ran the cable from our house to patio. The cable is showing but that is the only thing the weather can get to but it is weather resistant.
