Our take on the Polk Audio Atrium6

by Tara W.
Polk Audio

Outdoor speakers let you move the party outside

Outdoor speakers are built tough -- they laugh at wind, rain and weather. Tuck a pair under your eaves and they'll pump out the tunes to keep everybody smiling and swaying at your next cookout or pool party. We also have some "rock" speakers that blend seamlessly into your landscaped lawn or garden.

Take your outdoor music to the next level with Polk's Atrium6 speakers. These speakers offer premium sound, thanks to 1" tweeters, 5-1/4" woofers, and PowerPort® bass venting. 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, whether your install them on your deck, near your pool, or in your bathroom.

Polk's new Speed-Lock™ system makes mounting the Atrium6s quick and easy. Install the bracket and simply click the speaker into place. Then just aim the sound towards your listening area and tighten down the included thumbscrew.

    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.

    Woofer: Each speaker features a 5 1/4" (13.34cm) long-throw aerated polypropylene cone driver for clean midrange and deep, accurate bass. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.

    Tweeter: Each speaker features a 1" (25.4mm) 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 6 has a pair of gold-plated 5-way binding posts that will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).

    Mounting Options

    Speed-Locking Mounting System: The included rustproof aluminum brackets allow multiple mounting options and are quick-and-easy to install. The Atrium 6 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.

    Poke Atrium6 Sonos Amp

    Written By Scott, Grand forks, ND on Sunday, August 24, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I purchased the speakers for my deck under the advise of a friend who had Atrium3 speakers in his garage. I already had Sonos throughout the house and have been more the impressed with the sound and versatility of the system. So, needless to say, I was already familiar with the ease of operation and setup of Sonos. To my delight, Poke Atrium6 speakers were just as easy to mount and the sound is beep, full and capable of clear crisp sound far beyond my expectations and my neighbors tolerance. Together, Sonos and Poke have made my deck a relaxing audio experience.
    Pros:
    Both Sonos and Poke provide ease of operation and versatility with amazing sound.
    Cons:
    None. The Sonos Amp is a little more money then I would of liked to of spent. However, the versatility of Sonos is unmatched by a key pad and a dual receiver combination; which would be much more expensive (with unmatched capabilities) then the Sonos Amp and Poke combination.

    Impressed with the quality.

    Written By Mike, Magnolia TX on Friday, July 26, 2013
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I like the sound quality from the Atrium 6. I'll preface this short review by saying I'm not an audio expert, but i think these sound great. The speakers are mounted in each corner of my covered back patio. I have 10' ceilings and a large deck area and in ground pool, but these speakers do a great job of filling the entire area with rich, distortion free sound. These are powered as the second zone of my Marantz sr5007. Bottom line is I will probably purchase a pair to go on my front porch.
    Pros:
    Paintable Easy to mount
    Cons:
    Expensive? I paid $400/pair

    Good Choice!

    Written By Tom, Rochester NY on Saturday, May 26, 2012
     
    I've had Atrium 45s on my 18'x26' patio for 8 years, mounted on mailbox posts -- sound was very acceptable for outside, though of course not much bass -- brought them inside for a few winters, but left them out year-round for most of that time. Each of the last 3-4 springs when I played them for the first time, I was expecting them to have died, but they just "kept on ticking". I was very impressed with the Polk build quality, in spite of the abuse I've put them thru in western NY weather.

    I've been doing an upgrade of all my audio systems for the past year, have basically gone all in with Airplay, and now with warm weather the patio was next, decided it was finally time to upgrade the speakers. Looked at multiple options, mostly Polk, PSB, and DefTech. The DefTechs sound good, but the angle of the radiators didn't work in my setup, need direct radiating. PSBs have really impressive sound quality, but they're too big for my posts, as are Polk Atrium 8s. So my choice came down to the Atrium 6s or 7s, tossed a coin and got the 6s. Was a good choice, as they sound SO much better than the old Atriums, especially upper bass thru mids, and the size is perfect. If these have the same build quality as the 45s had, I'm set for a long time. Using a patio-dedicated Marantz 1602 AVR to power the 6s, as opposed to using a Zone on my NAD T787, and ran Audioquest FLX14 speaker wire. Airplay with Apple Lossless files on the patio now really sounds great!
    Pros:
    Exceptional build quality, good clean sound from upper bass on up, extremely easy to install
    Cons:
    None

    excellent product

    Written By Bob M, San Antonio, TX on Saturday, February 04, 2012
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Gave speakers as a gift for Christmas and installed on patio for outdoor entertainment. Sound quality is excellent and speakers can handle the power to fill a sizeable backyard with music and audio. Own numerous Polk products purchased from Crutchfields and have been very happy with all of their products.
    Pros:
    Easy to install and adjust for directional coverage, quality parts and construction.
