    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.

    3 questions already asked

    I would say the answer to your question is yes, although I'm not exactly clear on how you want to mount it. This speaker can mount multiple ways and has many adjustments for the angle you want the speaker facing. [ JOSH L  May 29, 2017 ]
    If I understand your question correctly, the speaker grill will be face up and subjected to the weather. Although they're weather tight, I wouldn't do it. The rain, snow, ice will significantly shorten the life. You may want to touch base with a Polk rep and get their opinion. I leave mine out year but they're mounted on the fascia under an overhang and somewhat protected. [ Charlie  May 29, 2017 ]
    We use the SONOS Amp for ours. We love it! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_616ZP120/Sonos-CONNECT-AMP.html?tp=63339 I'm sure there are other options out there. [ matt376  May 18, 2017 ]
    If you haven't tried Sonos, I highly recommend it. I am using the Atrium 6 with a Sonos Connect Amp. You can play music directly from your phone with the Sonos app. You can plug in any audio device; depending on the audio adapter cable you use. You can play off of any music library on your network. You can play off the multitude of streaming services on the Internet. I have four Polk Audio Atriums and plan to add four more. I love having music all over my back yard. By having multiple speakers, I don't have to play it too loud for me to enjoy without annoying my neighbors. The best part of the Sonos, is multiple devices can be playing anywhere you want! Sonos doesn't yet have outdoor speakers so this combination works well. [ CHRISTOPHER M  May 17, 2017 ]
    I built a home last year and installed a variety of Polk speakers, with a variety of power supplies. I have three different exterior Atrium speaker pairs being powered by a single Russound P75 amp, and that works well. I use impedance matching volume controls to protect the amp. The P75 senses inputs and will turn on as needed. [ Lawrence  May 17, 2017 ]
    Yes. The manual provides clear instructions how to paint and even how to remove the grills in order to do it. [ Michael  Sep 03, 2016 ]
    Mike, the manufacturer says yes; we did not based on advice of our painter. Leo [ LEO F  Sep 02, 2016 ]
    according to the manual, Yes, they can be painted, remove the grills first and paint while not installed on the speaker, as for body, obviously, do not paint the input posts, [ Ken  Sep 02, 2016 ]
