    Great product... Salesperson, not so much.

    I go to Best Buy today to purchase new speakers for the patio after looking online and selecting some nice Polk outdoor speakers that were on sale. I get to section of the store where they are located and discover that none of the outdoor speakers are hooked up for listening. I ask the sales associate if he can take these over to a receiver and hook them up so I can listen to them before making my purchase. He tells me no, there is no systems available that he can hook these speakers up to. I say, "what? It would you all of less than one minute to plug speaker wires into these so that I could hear them..." He tells me they aren't allowed to do that. And you wonder why Best Buys business is struggling? I bought them anyway because of the great price and quality. Thankfully, they sound great! Hook up ALL of the speakers you sell, Best Buy. We consumers need to hear them before we buy them!

    Nice speakers

    I have used these speakers indoors and outdoors with no problem. I placed 4 of these speakers in a commercial kitchen, and the staff loves it. Also place 5 of these as surround sound speakers in a residence. Sounds great. The white speakers blended right into the ceiling. They are easy to install and aim. The other reviews that state they don't have enough power are confused. First of all these are not active speakers, they don't have an amp built in. Therefore the amount of "power" going through these speakers is related to the amount of power coming from your amplifier, not the speakers themselves. Now these are obviously not high end speakers, but they are much better then some of the packaged surround sound kits you can buy.

    Beautiful Outdoor Music

    After unsucessfully attempting to use wireless speakers outdoors, I purchased these Polk outdoor wired speakers to extend our satellite tv music to our pool/lanai area. They are powered by my Sony 100 watt receiver attached to "B" speaker connection which is sufficient power. The installation was simple after running the speaker cables through the attic. The metal mounts attach to the house with two screws each. The wires then connect to the speakers and they mount very easily to the metal mounts with two 3 inch thumb screws that hand tighten. This feature is very convenient living in Florida as the speakers can be removed easily if necessary prior to a hurricane. The sound quality is great even with the background noise of our pool/spa waterfall. You can also tilt the speakers in the mounting to optimize sound quality.

    I initially went into BB to look at some yamaha's, and I didn't really like the sound of them. I saw the display of these polks, they were not connected, so I disconnected the yamaha's and connected the polks. I have to say I like them. I made the purchase, came home, installed them for backyard pleasure. It's exactly what I needed. The bass might be a little on the low side, but that can be fixed via bass adjustment. I would definitely recommend this product to fiends and family.

    I'm not usually a big fan of Polk speakers. In fact, I was a bit underwhelmed with a set of Polk in-wall/ceiling speakers I purchased at my last house. However, my opinion of these Atrium 4 outdoor speakers is nothing but positive: great sound quality; very efficient; and reasonable lower bass levels considering the speaker size. For this price range, I am quite pleased with the dynamic and transparent sound imaging. I was fortunate to find these on sale for $100, but I wouldn't complain if I paid the typical $200 retail. They are worth it. Easy to install, too.

    My 2nd Pair of Really Nice Speakers

    I already own a pair of Atrium 6s which I use in my garage and since I just finished my deck I was in the market for another pair of Polks. Best Buy had these on sale for $99 and I used my $60 Reward Zone points, yeah I paid $42 out the door! Very nice well built speakers that should last for years with proper handling. I'm still burning them in and I expect the sound to really open once the burn-in is done, don't get me wrong they do sound very good out of the box. Use a good high-quality power source. Very nice!

    We mounted these on our patio which is covered. These speakers are a good value for the money. They're well built and have good sound. The bracket is easily adjusted and features large recessed knobs that allow the incremental adjustment of the bracket. Additionally there are grooves for each movement so once the bracket is set it's not moving. Speaker wire can be installed with or without banana clips. The speakers have a good range of highs and lows.

    Blown speaker after 6 months, rarely used

    Bought these speakers in May 2011 for my guest house. Mounted them outside under a covered screen porch. Rarely used the system. Used them over the weekend and one of the speakers is making a horrible, crackling sound. Tried disconnecting and re-connecting. The sound is worse on songs with heavy bass. Sounds like the speaker is blown. The sound is pretty good, but they aren't very powerful. Taking them back and most likely upgrading to something stronger.

    I was looking for Bose outdoor speakers and/but these where there for easy comparison.I was looking for reasonably good sound for music and outside sound for TV. Got lots more at reasonable dollars. Final proof will be how well they weather( heat humidity) mounted under roof ledge so no direct rain. Packaged literature didn't seem to offer much longevity data other than that they are designed for outdoor use.

    overall, these speakers are great for the price. they lack a little bass, but overall sound very good. I compared them to the boston acoustic speakers as well as the bose outdoor speakers. I thought they sounded the best and I would still agree with that statement. these are cheaper than the Bose and the same price as the boston acoustic speakers. Good sound, good quality, & good looking.

    Could use a little more base. Not as good as my Paradigm outdoor garage speakers but only a fraction of the price. I have thought about getting these for 2 summers now and finally did when they went on clearance. Couldn't be happier for the price point. Unless you are holding an outdoor concert these are plenty powerful and clear. Great backyard grilling/by the pool speakers.

    My home theater runs on all Polk speakers and I am very satisfied with their quality. My issue with these outdoor speakers is they lack bass. I didn't do a lot of research because I got a great deal on an open box. They have quality sound but if I was really serious about a "rockin" outdoor system, I would look at their mid price or high end offerings.

    Great Price for Polk

    Bought this pair on sale for $99.99. Great price for Polk outdoor speakers. Have these set up on the back on the house and they sound nice. Looking to add two more and maybe even eventually add a sub so that the entire backyard is covered. These speakers will not have thumping bass but they will produce a crisp sound and you will enjoy your music outside.

    Great sound, easy to install. Love them. I had a pair of Radio Shack speakers on the deck for almost 20 years and one speaker got hit by lighting, so I went to get another pair. They were discontinued so I saw these on sale at best buy for $99.00. I couldn't be happier. I think the sound is better, could be the technology, we'll see in 20 years.

    I replaced my ancient patio speakers with a pair of these, and was astounded at the new-found clarity and power. I don't have to crank up my amp to ridiculous levels any more. Mounting on my siding was very easy, and the connector posts work very simply. And best of all, they cost me almost nothing thanks to my Best Buy Rewards points!

    I truely love these speakers. I wasn't sure about the whether but once it rain and I try using them again it was as if they were brand new. The sound was just awesome. Clear and loud. Mounting was little a little hard since we put them under the side of the house. But once they were up the party was on.

    I got these for my son so that he could replace an older set of speakers in his backyard. After he installed them, he called to say he could not believe the difference in sound quality and volume when compared to his older / larger pair. Also.. got them on sale for $99/pair so it was a "win - win" all the way around.

    I was concerned that the Atrium 4's wouldn't have enough low end, but after installing them i was very happy. I have them mounted on my deck in a wide open space, but they still give a full sound.No "transistor radio" sound at all. I also have a gazeebo in the yard and the sound reaches to it with no problems.

    I've mounted these speakers on my newly built deck. They are excellent for the size deck I had built. The sound is rich and clear. I love them. I'm thinking about buying two more for an even bigger sound.

    I really love these speakers, since they are outdoor I wasn't worried about the bass that I had read they lack. It is great for the front deck and back porch. I thought you would be able to hear them from the yard a little better but they still rock!
