    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Used this to replace a pair of Atrium 50s that were outside on a deck on the beach that had lasted 10 years until falling victim to corrosion. Looking forward to another 10 years of service!

    Pros: easy to mount and reliable

    Cons: changed the way the mount works, much more difficult to swivel the speakers with new cap screw design.

    Polk Audio has never disappointed me!

    Steverino from Saint Charles, IL on 7/3/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Once again, Polk Audio lives up to their great reputation. These speakers were easy to install and sound great! Crutch field service was fantastic as usual!

    Pros: Durable, easy to install, great sound!

    Atrium 5 - rocks

    George Az from Northern, Az on 6/8/2016

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    For an outdoor speaker, I just had to hook them up inside once before being stuck outside. Very good speaker and accurate with reasonable bass for the size. The construction is excellent and the hangers/brackets are very well made. These will rock on your deck, Kenny Chesney sounded great on FM or CD. Female vocals like Sarah McLaughlin are clear and smooth. These are an outdoor speaker which brings a good sound outside, and it sure beats dragging the indoors speakers in and out ever night. The point is, they keep up with the Missions which we were using and now I have a permanent fix!

    Pros: 5 year warranty, very well made externally, sound good and have decent bass for the size.

    Cons: None that I can find.

    Great Sound

    Mounted 4 of these on the roof of an 84' house boat. Amazing clarity and surprisingly good bass for an open air application. They seem very durable and weather proof. With a nominal 35 watts per channel, they really sound great!

    kevin from Pennsylvania on 5/31/2015

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    just moved into a new townhome and have a new deck off the side of the house. i wanted something that would be able to fill the deck for entertaining or just sitting back... i looked at and have installed many outdoor speakers over the years. what sold me on these was the video on Crutchfield showing what great lengths polk puts these speakers through with testing for outdoor conditions [second video on the product page]. we put them up yesterday under some eaves so they wont nearly be exposed to the conditions from those test. have them running from a sonos connect amp in the garage and they sound great. i'm very please with my choice and thanks to the Crutchfield advisor Conrad that helped me make the right choice.

    Pros: Super easy to install. Great sound!

    Cons: None

    Anon from St.Louis, MO on 7/29/2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Fantastic sound. I was concerned about the base after reading some of the reviews but I actually have a great base response and the well blended sound. I am very particular about the the right amount of base and tend to lean a little heavy towards a deep base and I was pleasantly surprised by the amount these put out.

    Pros: Overall sound and quality for the price

    Cons: None

    Great Sound for a Great Price

    David from Sonora, CA on 11/5/2013

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    My wife and I have wanted outside Speakers for our rear deck for some time now, but had not chosen which ones to purchase. My son did some research and highly recommended these Polk Audio Atrium5 Speakers. We purchased them along with a new TV and Soundbase from Crutchfield as well, and are very satisfied with our choices. The outside Speakers have a wonderful Sound and Clarity that we just love! We placed one each at each end of our 1,000 square foot deck, and the sound is just perfect! One speaker is mounted on a corner to our side yard as well where we gather with friends to enjoy our Pond/Waterfall and Fire Pit with Seating, and the sound covers that area perfectly as well! Now if I can just keep my neighbors on three sides OK with my turning these up from time to time....

    Pros: Excellent Sound Quality including Great Clarity - Warranty shows the faith of the Company, which we were glad to see. Strong Sound, Excellent Clarity, along with Great "Coverage"!!!

    Cons: None what -so-ever! - These Speakers perform wonderfully!!!

    Fantastic

    Tanner G from Kansas City Area on 5/18/2013

    These speakers are nothing short of fantastic. Even at low volumes you get a well rounded sound. These speakers powered with this Sony unit STR-DH100.. They are a team that are perfect for each other for people wanting a simple setup for a relatively low cost. Along with 50 foot of wire setting these babies up was a breeze! The way these speakers are on a swivel is awesome.. There are no restrictions due to the way this thing is built! Just make sure you measure out your distance so you have plenty of wire or its gonna be a pain getting halfway through and realizing you don't have enough. We used a 14 gauge wire and it worked excellent, we ran it to the speakers and painted over it and it blends in well with nothing standing out. Again you can't go wrong with these speakers, if you are a lover of country you are going to get vibrant vocals and a nice low end bass guitar and kick drum to round it out. And if you are a lover of hip hop these babies are going to give you vibrant vocals, a nice clean treble, and a very clean tight bass. These things powered with the right receiver like the one I put above, which is an awesome yet very simple to the people not very familiar with electronics (my 75 y.o. Grandparents work this thing) will give you plenty of power to annoy your neighbors if you truly wish to. But Seriously, buy these speakers.

    Pros: Sound awesome, blend well into their environment, and are very well built to last a long time

    Cons: They are too awesome I don't want to leave my back porch.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I used these as patio speakers attached to my inside juke box. Installation was simple. Volume seems a bit low but waiting for break-in as I have been told they take some time. Sound quality is great.

    Pros: Great sound quality.

    Cons:

    Great for the money

    Jeff B from Albany, NY on 7/24/2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    As always the Crutchfield team helped me make a great purchase. I put these speakers on my back patio and deck so we could enjoy music while we were out there. I located them up close the eaves of the house as was recommend by the manufacturers directions. Mounting them took less then a ten minutes with the simple brackets included. They sounded great right off. Response was good and they gave plenty of volume that carried across the yard. The base was weak, as stated by most people, but for most songs you can't tell. I know these have a break in period that will hopefully help that out as time goes on. For the average user this is a great product for the money. If you like music with a lot of base I would look at something else or think of adding the Polk subwoofer for outside.

    Pros: Good sound, easy install.

    Cons: Could use more base

    Polk Atrium5 Great Product

    Mark from Decatur, Texas on 6/26/2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I recently purchased a pair of these speakers to replace our old pair of Patio speakers we pruchased around 10 years ago. After installing the Atrium5's, the sound is great. I'm powering them with the Zone 2 of a Yamaha V2065. They are also running through an EQ, (for my personal tweeks). The speakers sound great. The highs are clear and the bass is rich sounding. I'm very pleased with my purchace and the quaility of theses speakers.

    Pros: Easy to install

    Cons: None so far

    Good Investment

    SteveA from Trophy Club, TX on 6/12/2012

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is my first experience with outdoor speakers and I am completely satisfied. If you look at the speaker line, there are a number of options from Polk. I decided to spend a bit more to go one level above the base model and I am very happy. While still a couple models removed from the top of the line, this model puts out very clean and bright sound. My outdoor area isn't large, but the sound is full and carries well across the entire area. Additionally, the speakers are fairly wide apart but overlap well in terms of coverage. Finally, the form factor is very good and while not being small, they don't seem large or obtrusive and are visually appealing without feeling that there is a large box mounted to the wall. I highly recommend these speakers.

    Pros: - Balanced tones across all ranges - Smaller form factor - Easier to mount

    Cons: None, so far

    Great Outdoor Speakers

    Mark from Kansas City, MO on 8/11/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Two years ago I purchased a complete Polk Audio setup from Crutchfield for my home theater. Setup is RTi A3's for fronts, CSi A4 for center, RC80i's for surround, and DSW PRO 550wi for subwoofer. This is powered by a Onkyo TX- SR805 with 7.1. After looking at several home theater options, kept coming back to Polk for sound quality and value. Couldn't find a better speaker for the money, and even if I spent more, these were still better than most that cost twice as much (IMHO). We recently finished off some outdoor living space and needed speakers. Initially, I decided to take a cheaper path and bought some Polk Audio Patio speakers I saw at Sams Club for around $129. They sounded terrible, and went right back to the store. I then came back to Crutchfield and decided to spend a little more on the Atrium 5's. Sound difference is amazing and they are still breaking in. Early review is these are great speakers for the money and definitely a good choice. Great for background listening or if you want to crank it up some for a backyard event, they can definitely handle the volume. Polk continues to impress me, their Patio Speakers aside (not sure what that was all about, but was reminded that you do get what you pay for).

    Chad from Auburn, CA on 6/6/2011

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I have been a audio file for 20+ years. I've owned many high end speaker brands. When it comes to these little polks I can't complain. Infact I was very impressed. After running them through the break-in period they started seriously coming alive. They are very clear and crisp sounding. The bass is also impressive for its size. They sound great at any volume. I must say Polk Audio is a great value and so are the Atrium 5s.

    Pros:

    Product Research

    Outdoor Speaker
    Driver Technology
    Enclosure Design
    Connections
    Mounting Options

    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 5" (12.7cm) 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 5 has a pair of gold-plated 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 5 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.
