Polk Audio Atrium 6 Speakers (Pair, Black)
- 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.)
- Anodized Aluminum Tweeter Domes with Rubber Surrounds are absolutely immune to the elements, provide the smooth, broad high-end range you need for larger outdoor spaces
- Newly designed tweeter phase cap smoothes the frequency response from 12KHz up to 20kHz, the last audible octave.
- Broad Coverage Baffle Design adapted and applied from our current Atrium design but a more steeply-angled baffle design that maximizes critical mid- and high-frequency dispersion over a large area.
- Speed-Lock Mounting System for easy, safe one-handed installations even in difficult locations. The greatly simplified mounting procedure means fewer parts to “juggle.”

First introduced in 2002, the outdoor Atrium Series set a new standard not only for build quality, but sonic performance, too. But we couldn’t leave well enough alone. Not only does our new, refined Atrium Series offer better sonic performance and easier install/mounting options, the series also exceeds the standard military specification weather tests, setting a new standard for rugged outdoor durability under our own more rigorous weatherproofing certification program. The results are a pure joy to listen to. So that wherever you put your Atrium speakers—by a pool, on a deck or in a sunroom, you can be confident they’ll deliver great sound year round.

I purchased a Yamaha 202 receiver with bluetooth for the garage. I got a pair of Yamaha 190s speakers for inside the garage, and a larger pair of Yamaha 390s for the exterior of the garage (facing the backyard). While the sound was great on both pairs, for highs and mids, neither really had a low end. They also both struggled to fill the space. The 190s were fighting to fill the garage, and the 390s were fighting to fill the backyard.
I figured I'd try to fill the void on the low end with a sub. Quickly I learned that subs just don't produce sound the same way outside. You need walls and ceilings and corners for bass to do it's thing. ...besides, I really didn't want to have a sub outside. It's just cleaner sticking with the mounted speakers.
I returned the sub and started what amounted to a ton of research, and just about everything I found was pointing to the Polk Atrium 6s. I must admit I was hesitant going from a 6.5" driver on the Yama 390s, down to a 5.25" driver on the Polks, when my intention was go get more powerful sound, with more support on the low end of the spectrum.
All I have to say is that I'm so glad I took a chance on these. Polk apparently knows what they're doing. Don't let the driver size deter you; these things really provide warm, well-rounded sound. As an added bonus I wasn't expecting, the Polk A6s fill the yard with much more consistent sound, whether you're directly in front of the speakers, or on the opposite side of the yard. I ended up returning the Yama 150s that I mounted inside the garage, moved the Yama 390s inside the garage (where they do sound much better), and I have my new Polks supporting the backyard.
I should add that you should not expect these to sound like you have a subwoofer in your space. Don't expect in-your-face bass. But do expect a very well rounded sound across all music genres. I'd buy these again in a heartbeat.
Sound quality: Much better highs and lows than the 251s. You'll need to break in the speakers for 4-6 hours (to loosen up the voice coils) and once you do that, you'll find much better range than the 251s. Clearer sound, much less muddy than the Bose units
Area coverage: The Bose units do disburse sound well, as they are essentially cross firing, so for small spaces you'll have good coverage. However, at say 100'+ straight out, the Atriums extend the sound much better and are a lot clearer.
Installation: The Atrium gets the nod here, as the brackets very well designed for single hand installation. These are fairly heavy speakers, so this is really a nice factor when working off a ladder. The only thing I'd fault is it's not possible to use straight banana plugs as the housing does not have enough room to insert these in.
Warrantee: Bose does provide 5 years against 2 years for the Atriums. But if worried, get the extended warrantee package and you'll still be money ahead of the 251s
Power required: I have a big back yard (no neighbors) and like my jazz pretty loud, but even so a 50W/channel amp provides plenty of power. Pretty similar output compared with the 251s, but again a lot cleaner. Note-these are 6 ohm speakers, so be careful if you plan to run 2 sets of these in parallel.
It the money was equal, the Atriums would be a better choice than the 251s. In reality, the 251s are a lot more expensive so this is really a no brainer choice. Wish I would have seen these 5 years ago before I got the 251s!
I have these powered on my covered patio by an ancient Sonos ZP100, and they are wonderful. Because of where I had to put the speakers, I am glad I had EQ and Balance settings. With a few tweaks they sound so rich and full, and they have only been playing for 2 hrs so far.
I opted for the Atrium 6’s to get the lower bass and I had a bit more budget. I’m so glad I got these!!!
