Polk Audio Atrium Sat30
Outdoor speaker with in-ground mounting hardware
Crutchfield: Polk outdoor speaker test
Our take on the Polk Audio Atrium Sat30 by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
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.
Love the speakers. Good quality for the price and sound awesome. Blend in nicely to our landscaping.

Overview: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker is designed to look and sound great outside on your patio, deck, or porch. Designed to mimic stylish lighting fixtures while delivering high-performance audio, the innovative Atrium SAT30 satellite speaker can be planted in your landscaping, hung from your ceiling or the eaves, or installed anywhere you want to mix great sound with the great outdoors. The Atrium SAT30 can be used by itself, with multiple SAT30 satellite speakers, and/or with Polk's Atrium SUB10 outdoor subwoofer.
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.
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).
Weather Resistant Enclosure: The Polk Audio Atrium SAT30 Outdoor Satellite Speaker features a mineral-filled polypropylene cabinet with an aluminum grille and stainless steel hardware to protect the speaker from the outdoor elements year round. 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.
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?
They have a tweeter, the cost is significant less than the Sonance Sonorray SR1 system which does not have tweeters in the speakers. They have great reviews from everyone. [ Jorge Jun 10, 2017 ]

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 ]
2 questions already asked
Hello, For further detail page 13 explains the wiring really well. 1. If you wiring just the sats it is normal wiring, Left channel red to positive and black to negative. 2. If you are incorporating the sub into the system you will have the same 4 wires from the sats and 4 wires from the sub. Hook the sub up in the following manner. Left channel - in addition to the sat, white to positive and green to negative from the sub. Right channel - again, in addition to the sats, red to positive on the sub and black to negative on the sub. In total that is 4 pairs of wires with a positive and negative. I have been very happy with the sound of the satellites and the bass from the sub is very good. [ Brett Mar 24, 2017 ]
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 ]
