Crutchfield had a chance to visit Polk headquarters and see the kind of tests every outdoor speaker they sell has to endure before it's deemed good enough. Polk immerses the speakers in water, exposes them to heat, cold, fog and salt, and even whacks them to make sure the speakers can take anything and still deliver great sound.
