View Full Version : Polk Atrium 65 outdoor speakers..
04-27-2012, 10:51 PM
Last year I purchased these speakers and I just hooked them up, I went to best buy and purchased a cheap pioneer receiver for $260, I just wanted background music when we are enjoying the new deck ( the work on my house has been a work in progress for the last couple of years)
I just wanted to post that with this receiver these speakers sound great in my back yard, I am very happy with the results and I haven't even played with the settings on the receiver and the big plus for me is it's iPad iPhone ready..
Bring on the BBQ weekends..:cheesygrin:

Glad to hear this as I'm looking at getting a pair of outdoor speakers. I'm assuming these are weather proof? and yes bring on more BBQ weekends, weekdays work to, as I now have 2 Weber kettle grills so I'll be grilling in stereo.

Yes, they're weather proof. There's pictures here of people with icicles dripping from them. I think other people buried them in snow and water for a few days and they still played fine afterward.
I have Atrium 4's and 5's. The 4's are a little week on bass so I swapped them for 5's for my kitchen. Both sound great and are built really well. I'm moving the 4's outdoors when I get my pergola built.

They're not quite as nice as the 65's, but I installed some Atrium 5's a few days ago and they definitely exceeded my expectations. Glad to hear you like em!

I set up some atrium 30's and the terra cotta sub for a friend and it's extremely nice. I liked the sub so much I got one too. For some reason it's not putting out much of anything, and my friends puts out sweet bass. Im sure I've mis wired something but I haven't figured it out yet. I was planning on opening it up to see if something is loose or internally mis wired. It was a refurbished from the Polk store.
