Liven up your next cookout or pool party with the Polk Atrium Sat30 outdoor speaker. It delivers smooth, clear sound and sports an enclosure modeled after outdoor lighting fixtures, to blend in seamlessly with your patio or garden décor.

You can mount the Sat30 virtually anywhere, thanks to its all-weather enclosure and inconspicuous design. The included mounting hardware lets you secure the speaker to your deck floor, outside wall, or even directly to the ground. Or, remove the pivoting mounting arm, and attach an optional pendant cable to hang it from a ceiling or overhead beam.

Use a pair of Sat30s by themselves, or team them with Polk's Atrium Sub10 subwoofer for a full-range outdoor stereo speaker system.

    Polk Sat 30

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Sounds great but a lot of work to install

    Pros: Great sound when combined with the outdoor sub! You really can't come close to this sound quality with the traditional 2 outdoor speakers mounted on the side of the house.

    Cons: A lot of work to install. You need to dig a trench and make sure to get cable rated for direct burial. Also the product includes regular indoor wire nuts, not outdoor waterproof wire nuts. So you either need to purchase the outdoor kind or seal them with silicone.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great speaker when used with a sub-woofer.. I was worried that the sound would not be good due to them only going down to 115hz, but combined with a sub. they are great! I used 3 of them out in the yard for front L/R and a center channel leaving a indoor sub. on the covered patio and 2 in-wall polk speakers mounted in the house overhang. This 5.1 configuration is used for my outdoor projector theater, or just to listen to music. The only thing I did not like was that they came with regular wire nuts that you must put your own silicone in to seal them. I do not see why they could not come with inline crimp connectors that you heat shrink.

    Pros: Great sound, small size, good looks and paintable.

    Cons: Two little cons is they must be used with a sub-woofer for great range of audio, and did not like the wire connectors.

    awesome!! these speakers have great sound. we purchased a yamaha reciever 105 watt per channel. we also bought the autdoor voyager subwoofer, but even without the sub the sound is amazing. We made an outdoor kitchen under roof 20x20 area the sound is as good as our indoor theater, maybe better! we used 5 speakers

    Outdoor Speaker

    Weatherproof Design: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker is engineered to survive the outdoor elements all year round. The Polk Audio outdoor speaker is designed to handle temperature extremes from -40-degrees to 185-degrees Fahrenheit and resist salt and fog corrosion.

    Driver Technology

    Dynamic Balance Driver Technology: The Polk Audio Atrium SAt30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker features a 3.5" long-throw midrange driver with 1" voice coil, vented pole-piece, rugged butyl rubber surround and composite cone; along with a 0.75" composite dome neodymium tweeter. Capable of handling up to 100 Watts of power to deliver superb clarity, detail and high efficiency with less distortion, at both moderate and higher volume levels, even in outdoor environments.

    Flying Bridge-Mounted Tweeter: The cleverly mounted 0.75" composite dome neodymium tweeter does not get in the way of the woofer, for smooth, realistic sound in a compact housing.

    Built-In High-Pass Crossover: With Built-In High-Performance Crossover Technology, the Atrium SAT30 can be connected directly to its own amplifier channels for independent volume control. The overall frequency response is 100Hz-22kHz and the -3dB frequency response is 115-20kHz.

    Capacitive Coupling Technology: Capacitive Coupling Technology enhances the bass performance of the Atrium SAT30. CCT is an advanced signal-blocking technology that determines exactly where a small speaker usually skimps on bass output. Special circuitry then compensates by boosting response in this critical frequency range. More bass response means a wider dynamic range with more musical realism.

    Acoustically-Matched Two-Way Design: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker can deliver dynamic sound on its own or can blend seamlessly with the Polk Audio Atrium SUB10 outdoor subwoofer 107ATSUB10, sold separately).

The Atrium SAT30's weather resistant enclosure features an impregnated finish that enables it to blend in wit most landscaping and outdoor furnishings. The cabinet can also be painted to match your outdoor decor.


    Direct Burial Connection: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 features an attached 3' CI3-Rated direct burial 2-conductor cable so no there is no exposed wiring when ground mounting the speaker. The outdoor satellite speaker comes with a pair of wire-nuts for connecting your speaker wire.

    Mounting Options

    Multiple Mounting Options: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker comes supplied mounting hardware to mount the speaker from the ceiling, mount the speaker in the ground, or mount the speaker to your deck or wall.

    • Deck and Wall Mounting: The Atrium SAT30 features an integrated mounting arm which allows you to attach the outdoor satellite speaker to your deck floor or outside wall. Once mounted the integrate arm allows you to adjust the angle of the Atrium SAT30.  The Atrium SAT30 also features a 1/4"-20 threaded insert to wall-mount the speaker using an optional wall-bracket (the integrated arm must be removed to access threaded insert).
    • Ground Mounting: The Atrium SAT30 comes supplied with an ABS ground stake and metal security plate to mount the outdoor satellite speaker in your garden or landscape. The enclosure even features a shock absorbing gasket to help it withstand blows from outdoor lawn equipment.
    • Pendant Mounting: The Atrium SAT30 can also be hung from the ceiling using the supplied eyebolt and optional pendant wire-cable (the integrated mounting arm must be removed).

    Note: Aiming the Atrium SAT30 to an angle greater than 45-degrees my result in water buildup inside the grille that could cause damage to the speaker, especially during cold weather when freezing may occur.

    Why did you buy this?

    size [ ANTHONY  Aug 30, 2016 ]
    Previous experience with Polk Audio over the years. I also liked the look of the speaker and I believe it will look great in my lanai by the pool! [ Christopher S.  Jul 19, 2016 ]
    Purchased a pair two years ago, has weathered well and no issues with clarity or case. [ JOHN F  Jul 12, 2016 ]
    The good reviews! [ Tim  Jul 11, 2016 ]
    Ease of Mounting in the ground [ Glen  May 09, 2016 ]
    They fit the difficult mounting location that I have and they pair with the Polk Atrium sub10 subwoofer that I already have. [ Richard  Apr 22, 2016 ]
    I've had Boston Acoustic marine speakers for years. When I had to replace, I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried the Polk sub/sat outdoor set. I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER. These satellite speakers sound great. 2 mounting options. The sub sounds great as well. It's nice having some low end while outside. The terra cotta colored sub is an ingenious idea. Very happy with this product. [ Brett  Jan 25, 2016 ]
    I had one of these speakers and really liked the quality, needed another and it was easy to choose this one. [ Daniel  Dec 12, 2015 ]

    1 question already asked

    I bought these along with the Atrium 8's, but have yet to install the sat 30 yet. I plan on setting them up when the weather breaks this spring. The larger atriums are however excellent, get many compiments from friends. Set them up on outside of our small pool house exending towards the pool. Very pleased with the accurate sounds that they send out. [ DANIEL W  Mar 23, 2014 ]
