Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio Atrium4

Turn your backyard into an outdoor concert hall with Polk's Atrium4 speakers. These small speakers offer great sound, thanks to 3/4" tweeters and 4-1/2" woofers. And the rugged, weatherproof design meets or exceeds stringent military specifications for full exposure to the elements. That means you'll get years of superb performance, wherever you place them.

And the rugged, weatherproof design meets or exceeds stringent military specifications for full exposure to the elements. That means you'll get years of superb performance, wherever you place them.

Polk's new Speed-Lock™ system makes mounting the Atrium4s quick and easy. Install the bracket and simply click the speaker into place. Just aim the sound towards your listening area and then tighten down the included thumbscrew.

Really happy with these, despite their small size they sound great! Perfect for the location I put them in which is a small, enclosed on three sides, outside space. I am also a fan of how these look.

    Using indoors for garage system. Sound quality is good with Yamaha 80W amp.

    Pros: Mounting brackets worked well.

    Cons: Seemed light in terms of speaker magnet weight, but bass seems ok, once mounted to solid surface

    Nice Speakers

    Brian from Rochester, MN on 7/3/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Fast shipping and nice speakers. Easy installation on my patio under the overhang. Need to up the volume on the receiver a bit from the indoor speakers but sound quality is good. Bass is adequate and sounds fine. For the price a good set of outdoor speakers.

    Pros: Installation ease and brackets

    Cons:

    Great speakers

    Wanted something that would be clear for my deck bar, these are perfect. They sound great and are very clear, even when up loud can have a conversation. I can hear them clear at the end of my yard, about 200ft away. Happy I went with these.

    Pros: Simple install. Great sound

    Cons: Nothing yet.

    Fantastic little speakers, was pleasantly surprised by their sound, haven't gotten to be able to test the no bass claims that I've read, but beyond satisfied so far. The size is perfect, glad I didn't purchase anything larger! Thanks again Crutchfield!

    Pros: Size, sound, construction

    Cons: None so far

    I replaced a pair of Insignia outdoor speakers with these, because after 2 years they sounded very bad on low range. So far these sound great. Very clear on Highs and Lows are well balanced.

    Pros: Price, size, performance

    Cons: none

    A little Polk with Big Polk sound

    Jeff M. from Martinez,Ca. on 5/26/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I was surprised by the sound that the Atrium 4 produces. I have owned a surround theatre system by Polk since 2003 and have always been impressed by it but when I hooked up the Atrium 4 speakers outside I had to ask myself if the music was coming from my surround theatre set up or the new Atriums. Great job Polk !

    Pros: Nice compact design and easy mounting system.

    Cons: None.

    J from Kentucky on 4/24/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sounds great in a 4-speaker Marine set-up driven with a Rockgate Amp. Compact enough to place in side rails beside seats, Bass is adequate and what physics dictates for a speaker 9 in tall and 7 in deep - it won't sound like a full size but way good for a compact.

    Pros: Compact size, weather resistant, above average sound for compact speaker

    Cons: None

    Good Value for the money

    Phil H. from Palm Coast, Florida on 4/14/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Replacing a pair of no name brand from another retailer (mistake!) for the out side pool area that lasted two years. The brackets and speaker case are affected mostly due to the weather here in Central Florida, beating sun rays, rain, and pool chemicals. Had them for three months and the brackets have held up, no rust. The speaker case is like new and the speaker delivers clear crisp sounds. Could use more bass, but for the $, it does the job.

    Pros: Price, brand name, eye appeal, sound and construction

    Cons: Lack of bass

    Own several pairs of these, four sets to be exact. They are quality speakers and sound good in our Crossfit gym as well as around our outdoor pool. Not the best but do the job.

    Pros: Nice look, holding up well after couple years outside already. Sound ok for our needs.

    Cons: Could drive more bass.

    Lee from Tallahassee on 10/7/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Some people call me "old school" because I have preferences developed in the 80's.I was actually trying to find some David 5000s and the Polks were a second choice. I'm using then as aux rears in a van. I expect they will do great when they get set up with their own amp.

    Pros: Full crisp sound.

    Cons: Lack of bass which isn't a problem when used with a 12" sub.

    Picked these up while on sale and then applied my Crutchfield rewards points for an "out the door" price of $35! They sound great. Nice and balanced. Im using them on the patio. They are powered by my Onkyo receiver's second zone, so I can't adjust bass/treble, but they still sound good.

    Polk Atrium 4's

    Jeff from Harbor Springs, MI on 7/11/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sound great and easy to install. I have them installed outside on the patio, installation was easy, however the 5 way binding posts do not support a standard banana plug. The angle of the posts blocks access for a standard banana plug from the back of the posts. I had to insert the banana plugs into the binding post screw opening and then snugged them down. The connection seems to work fine and they continue to sound great.

    Pros: Value/Price. Easy to install. Sound and look great.

    Cons: Standard banana plugs do not fit due to the angle of the posts.

    These speakers rock! Not very bass heavy but nice and crisp. I'm not out to rock the neighborhood with these but I could easily fill my 650 Sq ft patio with nice sound. They sound nice at low volume as well. I'm going to use these as an outdoor theater setup too. Stop thinking about them and just get them.

    Pros: Good range for being outdoors. Loud and acurate.

    Cons: None

    Tim from Highlands Ranch, CO on 4/18/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed these speakers on my side patio and my back patio 2 years ago. I've been very pleased with the quality of sound on these speakers. Sound is crisp and bass is good. While I rarely write reviews, I felt inspired to do so as I'm writing this on my side patio with Kings of Leon playing through Pandora on my iPad streaming through Airport Express to my older Onkyo receiver. I'm really pleased with these speakers and planning to install another pair in my basement for working out. What I like is the quality at low and high volume. Thank you Crutchfield for helping me figure out the install.

    Pros: Quality of sound - Small enough (some speakers are really large) - Still working after 2 full seasons of Colorado's winter and summer extremes.

    Cons: None - I'm really pleased with these speakers.

    disappointing

    joe from Golden, CO on 3/21/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Based on the majority of reviews, I though these would have much better sound quality. They have virtually no bass. Turning up the bass on the receiver only caused distortion. I really debated about spending more money on other speakers, and now I will pay the $$ to return these. I don't understand all the five stars.

    Pros:

    Cons: no bass

This was the Granddaughters can ice skate on the beaver pond to wonderful sounds of Christmas over these speakers. They were easy to install and perform great even at -30 degrees.

    Pros: High quality sound and easy to install.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The speakers are working very well on my patio. Not sure if they sound any better than the speakers that I bought from a different retailer for half the money. Had the old speakers on the patio, they were good. Bought the Polk speakers. Moved the old speakers into the garage and hung the Polk on the patio. Not much difference in sound.

    Pros: Solid case. Easy bracket set up. Good sound.

    Cons: Are they twice the money better??

    S from East Stroudsburg, PA on 7/8/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For the size and price these Atrium 4's sound fantastic. We ran some 16 gauge wire out to the back deck and mounted these in both corners so we could have them face the house or swivel out to the the patio. The sound is great with no distortion up to rather high volumes. Wire hook up is easy with the 5-way posts and installation is also easy with only two wood screws needed for each speaker bracket. Easy to pop into the brackets once mounted but more difficult to pop out. Solution, just slide the bracket and speaker up and out of the screw mounts and take the whole thing inside when needed. Very convenient. These also appear to be very versatile with multiple mounting options/angles. Great value, great sound.

    Pros: Great sound with no distortion up to rather high volumes, handsome, easy to pop in.

    Cons: Not so easy to pop out.

    Great for the outdoors

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I use them for a patio, and delivers the right sound for a patio. I use the Atrium 7 for a larger & open pool area and main outdoor speakers.. These speakers will do great for a smaller area. Otherwise, step-up to the Atrium 7. Different sound category, different price category as well.... Different size as well. Atrium 7 are really bigger. If you hesitate, go for the Atrium 7, you won't be disappointed.

    Pros: Quality built Great sound for a small/medium size area Smaller size make them easy to use in smaller outdoor spaces

    Cons: Not as deep as Atrium 7, but should not be a surprise....

    Great sound

    DougK from Maryland on 6/20/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Excellent overall sound. This Atrium set was included as part of a promotion with Polk and Crutchfield and were not an intentional purchase other than I did have a use for them. I decided to hook them up in a spare room (inside not outside) to an older Sony receiver. Even if they weren't included in the deal with my other purchase, I would have absolutely purchased these. The sound is full and rich and plenty of volume. Great product for a great price. Highly suggest for the price for indoor or outdoor use!

    Pros: great sound

    Cons: none found

    X from Arlington, VA. on 5/30/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Crutchfield and Polk always seem to have some sort great speaker deal going. Since I bought over a certain dollar amount of Polk speakers, they threw in the Atrium 4's for free. Fantastic. I was putting speakers on the deck anyway, so why not mount them by the grill to supplement the sound? It works great. I was not expecting much from these little speakers but I am super impressed. I get plenty of volume and crisp, clear audio. I was expecting the bass to be really anemic but it's pretty good for speakers of this size. The build quality is top notch and mounting them couldn't have been easier. Polk's Atrium series is a winner. Taking advantage of the Crutchfield/Polk offers is a no brainer.

    Pros: Great sound for such a small speaker. Very easy mounting.Good price point.

    Cons: None so far.

    Great sounding speakers

    Kylek from Chicago on 5/15/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The speakers sound great even in a larger open space. The brackets allow you to mount them at the best angle for your setup, and can be mounted either vertically or horizontally with ease. The wire terminals make it so they make good contact for clear sound. Overall a great set of speakers for everyday use.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I mounted the Polk Atrium 4 speakers on our lanai. They look and sound great. They were easy to mount and are more than adequate for that space. I may purchase two more for the garage.

    Pros: Ease of mounting and sound quality

    Cons: I don;t have any at this time.

    So far, disappointed

    JohnB from St. Louis, MO on 4/28/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Not enough bass to sound good in a small backyard. I cranked up the bass on the receiver, but got lots of nasty distortion when I gave them only a modest amount of volume. Should have spent the money to get something decent. Will see if the sound improves after they've acclimated to outside conditions but I'm not optimistic. Probably stuck with them as installation marred the white finish. Ugh.

    Pros: Compact design. Easy to install and great flexibility in how to direct sound. Look nice. Inexpensive.

    Cons: Not worth even the modest price if they can't handle bass.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Speakers are crystal clear, stereo has never sounded better. Just the right size to fit under the eves with room to adjust if necessary. Best birthday present ever.

    Pros: Ease with installation, crystal clear sign.

    Cons: Had to block with screen netting, Robins trying to nest on them.

    I trusted Axel with my choice and was not let down. Don't let the size of these speakers fool you. They fill my back yard with great sound. Bass is impressive for the size and vocals are clear. Great sounding speaker. Thanks again for a great product.

    GeorgeE from Dublin, GA on 9/27/2011

    My recent purchase of Polk outdoor speakers was a replacement for older Polk speakers I have had for over 10 years. I have to say the the quality that Polk builds into their products translates into great sound and longevity. My new speakers provide excellent sound reproduction in my outdoor pool/patio area. I would recommend Polk products to everyone!!

    Very Good Outdoor Speaker

    TC from Shorewood, IL on 8/23/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I installed these speakers on an outside wall, just beneath the eaves. Due to their size, I was able to install them exactly where I wanted. The supplied bracket with swivel allowed me to rotate them where I needed the sound to go. Very good sound for their size and price. I would give 5 stars if they had a little more bass, but they did quite well for a 4" woofer.

    Small but great sound

    Chris from Albany NY on 8/22/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Speakers are small but provide a nice sound. Surprised at the base that's output...I wasn't expecting a lot and they came out sounding nice. Fairly light weight so hanging them wasn't an issue with just some regular exterior screws.

    I put these speakers in the garage so when I did my wood working I had something to listen to. The set up was easy and after I dialed in the sound the speakers were very nice. They have good highs and lows. For the price they are an excellent buy!

    I always use Bose speakers, but bose has many issues at low frecuencies. When I finish the Atrium 4 Installation I'm listen a new sound, more rich, more bass, a really excellent sound from those little speakers. We hightly recomend the natural sound of this model.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought these to replace some old JBLs in my 15' x 15' enclosed patio. Excellent mounting hardware to find the perfect angles that I needed. Decent bass (which I can adjust easily on my receiver) and excellent mids and highs. I would recommend them. I was also very pleased with Crutchfield's product info and really fast delivery.

    Kevin from Ruston, LA on 5/2/2011

    I really like these speakers! They look good, and are not too big. I use them outdoors, and am really impressed with the sound! They have great bass for their size! The closer you put them to your eves, the more bass you will hear. I was also impressed with how well they "spread" the sound. I also like the fact that they are so weather proof. For the money, you can not beat them! Highly recommended!

    Great Outdoor Speakers

    Russ from Plymouth, MI on 5/2/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    These speakers do not handle as low of frequencies as I would want for indoor speakers, but the mids to highs are wonderful. The light amount of bass is perfect for my small backyard so that I do not disturb my neighbors. Also, the mounting brackets allowed for me to easily mount these speakers under my eaves and point them down towards the center of the patio. As always, Crutchfield delivered the speakers quickly and provided an extensive amount of additional support.

    Outdoor Speaker

    Weatherproof Design: Polk Audio All-Weather Certified, Atrium Series speakers exceed baseline industrial and military specifications for environmental endurance (ASTM D5894-UV Salt Fog, Mil Standard 810 Immersion, Mil-Std 883 Method 1009.8 for salt and corrosion.) Certification means Atrium speakers can effortlessly withstand the outdoors, and hold up in extreme temperatures and precipitation.

    Driver Technology

    Polk Patented Technologies: Patented Dynamic Balance and Klippel Optimization technologies ensure the perfect material performance, eliminating driver and tweeter "artifacts" for more realistic sound reproduction at high and low volume levels.

    • Dynamic Balance: A Polk perfected method of analyzing a speaker's microscopic behavior with laser Interferometry. Polk engineers can tune out unwanted resonance and distortion with the right combination of materials, geometry and construction techniques. This brings you pure, distortion-free sound.
    • Klippel Optimization: By using a state-of-the-art Klippel Distortion Analyzer, Polk engineers were able to optimize the woofer's motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension bringing you the best possible performance even at extreme listening levels.

    Woofers: Each speaker features a 4 1/2" (11.43cm) long-throw mineral-filled polypropylene cone driver for clean midrange and deep, accurate bass. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.

    Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" (19mm) anodized aluminum dome tweeter with rubber surround and neodymium magnet for better power handling and smoother response.

    Enclosure Design

    Rugged Enclosure Design: The durable, mineral-filled polypropylene cabinet design, with molded-in bracing, sounds like a real speaker (not "an outdoor speaker"), and survives years of seasonal changes, for great sound, no matter what the weather. The rugged, mineral-filled polypropylene enclosure features a rustproof aluminum grille, rustproof aluminum bracket, and stainless steel/brass hardware.

    Note: The speakers are available in a black or white finish. The enclosure is also paintable.

    Broad Coverage Baffle Design: The sculpted front, steeply-angled baffle design and rounded enclosure minimize diffraction (sound reflecting off of hard edges) for more open and lifelike imaging.

    Connections

    5-way Binding Posts: The Atrium 4 has a pair of gold-plated 5-way binding posts that will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, single- and dual-banana plugs.

    Mounting Options

    Speed-Locking Mounting System: The included rustproof aluminum brackets allow multiple mounting options and are quick-and-easy to install. The Atrium 4 can be mounted either horizontally or vertically and aimed to deliver the best possible sound in a variety of situations The integrated brackets provide full 180-degree rotation (when mounted vertically or horizontally. The mounting brackets even allow the speaker to be mounted snugly in a corner or under an eve (at a downward 45-degree angle). You can remove the bracket and use the speaker's built-in stability feet, if you simply want to place the speaker on a table or shelf.

    7 questions already asked

    There is paint on the market for to use just on plastic materials. But, I suggest you don't paint them. [ Scott  Jul 24, 2015 ]
    Yes. Remove grill and cover cone and tweeter. I painted to match an outdoor space at a country club. [ PAUL J  Jul 24, 2015 ]
    I don't see why not, but I would go with the white ones and paint those. It might be hard to cover up the black completely. [ Edward  Jul 24, 2015 ]
    I would say yes, use a spray paint so the grill doesn't get clogged. [ THOMAS  Jul 23, 2015 ]
    Have them installed on an outside wall about a foot under the eve. No problems. [ JESSE  Apr 08, 2015 ]
    They are able to withstand the elements but I have mine up under my overhang so they don't stick out so much. They sound great. James [ JAMES A  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    We have 2 sets of these speakers which have done really well outside. However, ours are mounted on outside porches with overhead cover so I'm not sure about total exposure. I do know that ours have gotten wet and icy in spite of the cover because we are on a mountaintop with extreme wind. [ mary  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    I've had them up under the eaves of my back porch by the pool for a few years and the're doing just fine. While they aren't in direct weather, the eaves are fairly short, so I'm sure they're getting partially wet. They sound great and at a reasonable price, so those were the two biggest factors for me. Hope that helps! [ MARK  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    Mine are under the eaves of the roof line. I'm sure they get some wind driven rain from time to time. They work fine. [ KELL C  Apr 07, 2015 ]
    We have not received any answers from other customers on your question. I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question. [ Krissy  Jun 06, 2014 ]  Staff
    5 years parts and labor [ TRAVIS  Mar 14, 2014 ]
    Sorry, don't know. I have them as my front presence speaker for a 9.1 system. I got them free with Polk purchase, very nice speakers, seem very durable and very well made. [ Laurence  Mar 14, 2014 ]
    They would work fine , a little bulky for inside a house and unless you have a flood, the weather resistance is wasted inside :). Have you looked into the owm3 by Polk? They have an awesome look to them and can be mounted all sorts of ways [ Aaron Doran  Apr 06, 2016 ]
    We don't have any info about replacing the woofers in the Atrium4 speakers, but if yours are still under the manufacturer's warranty (5-years), it's possible Polk will replace them for you. You can contact Polk directly for more information at 800-377-7655. I hope that helps! My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159 [ Larry  Feb 10, 2016 ]  Staff
    I have a patio that is about 20x40 and these work perfectly in that space. [ MICHAEL  Jan 31, 2014 ]
    we have them mounted about 7 feet up on our terrace, the area is 10x25 feet, and they provide excellent coverage for the requirement, which is largely background music for parties [ ADAM C  Jan 29, 2014 ]
    It has rained so much since i got the speakers i was unable to put them up. Sorry i couldn't be more help. [ GREGORY  Jan 29, 2014 ]
    I use them on my patio outside but I am not happy with the sound when you turn up the volume. They rumble and sound like a blown speaker. [ RICHARD  Jan 29, 2014 ]
    I use these around my pool/patio area and it is approximately 50' x 100'. The speakers are clear and plenty loud enough for my type of listening (background music). My speakers are about 125 feet from my receiver, so there is probably some more power there, but ohm draw is high at that distance. The only thing I wish I had more of, is some bass, but I really can't expect too much boom boom from ceiling mounted speakers. Overall, I am happy with these. They look good, sound good, and mount easily. [ JOHN  Jan 28, 2014 ]
