About the Polk Audio Atrium8 SDI

Use Polk's Atrium8 SDI speaker when you need maximum flexibility along with premium outdoor sound. It can stand alone as a single stereo speaker, or you can put two together for a high-performance stereo pair. One speaker is convenient when you want to pump tunes to a smaller area, like a deck or patio, or when mounting options are limited. If you have room for two speakers, these speakers will give you fuller sound and better stereo separation in larger listening areas. A simple switch allows you to choose between single-speaker or traditional two-speaker stereo playback.

This speaker boasts the build quality you'd expect from Polk. It gives you superb audio performance, thanks to dual 1" tweeters, one 6-1/2" woofer, 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 enjoy years of great tunes, whether you install them in your bathroom or in your backyard.

Polk's new Speed-Lock™ system makes mounting the Atrium8 SDIs 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.

Atrium 8 review

Crutchfield customer from Verona, WI on 7/30/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great Sound. Great bass for their size. The dual mode, left/right channel in the same speaker is real handy for locations where you would normally need two side by side speakers. Saving $ and aesthetics. Connect the cables and you're good to go in minutes. Received them only two days after the order. Highly recommended.

Pros: Two Speakers in one. Great sound.

Cons: None

Clear Sounding

Linda from Lawton, OK on 12/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers will be used outdoors, however, since it's the winter season, we only hooked them up indoors to ensure everything worked. We also purchased a Denon AVR-X2400H amp to power them which has plenty of options for expansion later. The Polk's sound pretty clear and have good power, they could have a little more bass. I can't wait to be listening poolside this Spring.

Pros: Clear Sounding

Cons: Could use a little more bass.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The Polk speakers were a pleasant surprise. My entire adult life has been Bose for about 30 + years. After reviewing the online specs on all outdoor speakers, I broke out of the box and purchased my fist pair of Polk Atrium8 SDI outdoor speakers. The beautiful sound even got the attention of secondary sound critic... my wife. I agreed with her that the Polk speakers beat out my most prized speakers the Bose 251. Now for the Pros and Cons.

Pros: Nice sound range and especially on the low end.Something I could not get with Bose.

Cons: They sound great !

Big speaker, big sound.

Blair from Midlothian, VA on 12/3/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers are a bit bigger in size than most outdoor speakers but are also a bit bigger in sound. I have them mounted close to the corners under the ceiling of a 18x30 ft. outdoor porch, 30 ft. apart. Plenty of sound and booming base. These replaced another set of Polk speakers that lasted 30 years and were still kicking. Couldn't be happier with my Crutchfield purchase.

Pros: Efficient. Nice looking. Plenty of bass. Sound fills a large are. Easy to install.

Cons: None

Great outoodoor speaker PAIR

Matt from Hillsborough, NC on 7/24/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I ordered a single speaker for the back porch and it sounded okay in SDI mode but really just okay. This is probably true of any speaker, but a pair just sounds a lot better. Grabbed a second speaker while still on sale and they are great. The second speaker made all of the difference. Sounds good on the porch at low volume or I can crank it up for clear sound well out into the yard. I am satisfied with the bass response for the music that I listen to (mostly rock) and I do not intend to add a sub. I am driving a single stereo pair of these speakers on a Sonos Connect:Amp and it will push them un-godly loud. I could certainly add another pair elsewhere if desired on that amp.

Pros: Loud, clear and powerful enough to fill a large open space with sound. Well worth the $$ for this reason in particular. A smaller pair would be fine on the porch but would not push sound as far out in the yard.

Cons: Not very impressive in SDI mode. Could possibly get me in trouble with the neighbors.

I bought these on sale, which is rare, and they rock! These are used for an outdoor pool deck. I paired these with a Crown XLS1000 Power amp @ 215W per channel and a Polk Omni P1 wireless adapter. It's a completely invisible and wireless stand alone system that kicks butt! The sound quality is superb. If your up in the air on buying these don't wait. Get them now while they are on sale! Put some good clean power to them and you will be pleased. I can't wait till mine break in, they will only get better!

Pros: Sound quality, ease of mounting, mounting bracket super sturdy, solid construction

Cons: None for me, some say they are bulky but I wouldn't concern yourself with that. They are very well built!

Polk Atrium 8 - Sound Great

Eric W from Livermore, CA on 10/28/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I previously bought another brand of outdoor speakers and I just was never 100% satisfied. I should have bought these Atrium8 speakers in the first place, but I went against my better judgment. Even though these are designed to be outdoor, I take them down every time I get done using them. You just can't beat the construction of the Polks. They are solid and when you slide them in place, you almost don't even need to screw down the end caps (and I have these horizontally mounted. The sound also is awesome. I use them for my backyard home theatre and I love them. The only thing that I wish was better is if they made a dedicated outdoor center channel with two drivers instead of one. Other then that, I am completely satisfied.

Pros: Great Construction and Mounting. Great sound.

Cons: Nothing really, I love them.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The speaker was hefty, well built, easy to install and we are very pleased with the sound. It cranks up to all the decibels I would want for our deck area, but has enough reserve to disturb wildlife.

Pros: Good quality, good value, even though cheaper options exist.

Cons: A bit heavy, easier to have someone helping install overhead.

Sounds great, easy to install and construction feels solid.

Pros: Sound quality is very good and they were very easy to mount. The binding posts seem to be very sturdy, excellent quality. Using two on our deck connected to zone 2 of a Yamaha RX-V679.

Cons: They are surprisingly large but I suppose had I paid more attention to the products description I would have realized this.

Used two of these speakers in an outdoor bar setting for a buisness. The speakers are very easy to install. I thought about using four but actually two work very well. Great coverage! The sound is very clear and the bass when adjusted correctly gives great sound also. I used a Crown amp to power them. If need be I can get the model of the amp. But overall getting nice compliments from the patrons compared to the older MTX speakers that were taken out.

Pros: Very well designed! Great sound! Easy to install and sturdy! Not a gripe but they can handle some power so get a good amp to run them.

Cons: None

Love the Atrium 8 speakers. We bought these to use for our daughters wedding. We had the wedding on our lake lot and we were worried that the sound would be lost due to the size of the outdoor area. The speakers were awesome. Such great surround that you couldn't tell where to music was coming from. I would highly recommend.

Pros: Great sound for large out door area's.

Product Research

Features

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.

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.

6.5" DVC Woofer: The Polk Audio Atrium8SDI uses a dual-voice coil long-throw aerated polypropylene 6.5" woofer for clean midrange and deep, accurate bass. The dual voice coil design adds greater efficiency and power handling. For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses a butyl rubber surround.

Dual Tweeters: The Polk Audio Atrium8SDI has two 1" anodized aluminum dome tweeters with rubber surrounds and neodymium magnets for better power handling, smoother response and greater accuracy. This Dual Tweeter Array features Stereo Tweeter Aiming for excellent imaging, allowing you to use the Atrium8SDI as a single stereo speaker, or as half of a stereo pair.

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.

Dual Input/Single Input Feature: A rear mounted switch allows the Atrium8SDI to operate as a single, dual-input speaker for stereo applications, or a traditional single-input speaker for left or right use. When using the Atrium8SDI as a single stereo speaker, the dual tweeters and dual voice coils handle the left and right signals independently. For a stereo configuration, 4-conductor wiring is required, and one Atrium8SDI is equivalent to a pair of 8-ohm speakers. For traditional single-input use, only 2-conductor wiring is needed and the speaker impedance is 4-ohms.

5-Way Binding Posts: The Atrium8SDI has two sets of gold-plated 5-way binding posts that will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).

Speed-Locking Mounting System: The included rustproof aluminum bracket allows multiple mounting options and is quick-and-easy to install. The Atrium8SDI can be mounted either horizontally or vertically and aimed to deliver the best possible sound in a variety of situations The integrated bracket provides full 180-degree rotation (when mounted vertically or horizontally. The mounting bracket even allows 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.

This is just a speaker, they have no 'smart home' type components built into them. You connect them to an amplifier and music source. If you have an Amp or something that's powering them that's capable of integrating into an ecosystem like Google Home, then yes. But natively by themselves no.

I would like to put these on the doors of my 16x12 ft work shop so I can listen to music inside and outside just by opening or closing the doors. My question is how would they sound in a smaller space like my shed seeing how they are made for large open areas?

A
This is my second set of Polk Atrium SDI speakers. I've been able to mount both sets over the years in optimum spots on patios and each time, the sound has been very good. I would think they would be very good in an enclosed area such as yours, similar to most interior only speakers. Remind you that the woofer is not the size of typical indoor speakers, i.e. 8-10" so the bass may not be as good as you could get, but I don't know why you won't be pleased with these inside and out providing they are being driven by a capable source.

Drew, I do not know for sure, the Atrium 8 SDI has the two 1in tweeters & center channels do not have any !! So........ I' am thinking the 61/2 woofer in he Atrium 8 SDI would act as a center channel just fine, however i have no idea about the tweeters for center sound quality !! Just a trial & error hook up !! I guess its not alot of help, sorry !! Charles B

HI Drew -- I have used it in solo and also with two other speakers, though never in a home theater. I use it outdoors for music entertainment only. I can't think of a reason why theater sound would be different than music, but .... I'm not 100% expert. Bottom line -- yes to outdoors and yes with other speakers. -- Paul

I have not tried to do that with my speakers but I don't see why not these speakers are loud and clear with a fair amount of bass even if they don't work right for a center speaker you'll have some really awesome speakers

I can't see what not. It has great midrange and up frequency response. Enjoy it
