Polk Audio Atrium 4 Speakers

View PricingWhen it comes to your music, sound is a top priority. This is why finding the right speakers are of the utmost importance. Also, if you are a music lover or just frequently have music playing in the background as you go about your day you want to be able to hear it well; and not just hear it, enjoy the sound it puts off!

During the search for the right speakers, the ones that made the top of the list were the Polk Outdoor Speaker.The Polk Audio Atrium 4 Outdoor Speakers  can be used indoors or outdoors. Outside they provide a board amount of coverage with full sound.

What You Need in Good Speakers

  • Quality
  • Range of sound
  • Durability
  • Price

All of these things are important in your search and what will likely lead you to a  Polk Outdoor Speaker. They have all the project features that you could want in a speaker system including:

  • An industrial base line
  • Rubber surrounds on aluminum tweeters
  • Tweeter caps that give smooth frequency
  • A baffle designed steep angle
  • Easy mounting with a speed lock system
  • Easy to set up even in the hardest locations

All of the above equal up to what you should be looking for in a speaker and what you really need to get the quality, range, durability and sound. And the price is just right at only $117 on Amazon.com.They work especially well in large areas where the acoustics help with the amplification. They can be set up anywhere indoors as well and this is one thing that makes them so perfect; they are speakers that will work well anywhere.

As the site calls them, they are “The Speaker of all seasons”. In the summer and spring you can set them out on your patio or deck for easy listening while you are lying by the pool or working outdoors. In the fall and winter you can cozy up in front of the fire place while listening to your favorite holiday tunes, or one of my personal favorites – Jazz. Each speaker is safely nestled in a cabinet design made of polypropylene so it will survive though each season with all of its features perfectly intact.

Since the Polk Audio Atrium 4 Outdoor Speakers so small (with a big sound!), they can be installed in the most out of the way places inside or outside your home. And of course since they are good outdoor speakers, they are totally weather proofed to prevent any damage from occurring. These speakers have a long life so you will not have to look for a replacement anytime soon if you get the Atrium 4.

What The Polk Outdoor Speakers Come With

When you order your Atrium 4 Speakers you will get the following in the delivery box:

  • Atrium 4 Loud Speaker
  • Mounting Bracket (this particular bracket has a speed lock system. This makes installing the speakers so easy that you can do it with just one hand if you had to! All it takes is mounting the bracket and putting the speaker in place. You know it is in right when you hear he “click” sound. Aim it the way you want it, tighten it up and you are ready to listen!)
  • Registration card so you can register your new product online
  • A detailed owner’s manual so you will know exactly how to operate it and what to expect.

Everything you need to start listening is included except your music!

After trying these speakers out for yourself you will be ready to recommend them to anyone who is in the market for a good set of speakers. These speakers provide excellent sound quality. You can use them with many different amps (Sony’s and a Panasonic for example) and all will give fantastic sound.

The type of amp used will give different sounds so you should choose the amp that best fits your needs. For instance, when it comes to outdoor listening it is best to use a higher end amp and receiver. For indoors any other type will work just as well.

What Other People Have Said about Polk Outdoor Speakers

One review is great but it is also good to hear what other people have said as well. Below you will find some of the comments other customers have made about these speakers to help you figure out if they are right for you or not. My guess is that they will be!

“Excellent for the price” – Jim, Amazon Customer

“Got to love these speakers!” – Kim, Amazon Customer

“Outstanding durability and great sound” –Tewksbury, Amazon Customer

“Love these speakers!” – DM3147, Amazon Customer

Of course with any product there are some complaints and lower reviews. It is only fair to mention them in this review as well. Of all the 113 reviews on Amazon, 7 were below a four star rating.

The only real complaints about the Polk Audio Atrium 4 Outdoor Speakers were that a few defective products were received (they were replaced and this was no fault of the Amazon). Aside from that everything that was said was overwhelmingly positive. The grade for these speakers is a big A+!

  • These are magnificent speakers. I did quite bit of research before finally settling on the Polk Atrium 4 series and I’ve never regretted that decision. While they’re not the cheapest you can find, they certainly deliver sound quality way beyond what you’d reasonably expect for a $100 pair of speakers. I have a large patio and backyard and have 2 pairs installed which easily covers it off with clear sound and a great base range.
