How would you say the sound quality is? I don't expect big booming bass, but is it at least what could be considered "well rounded".

Difference between these and the atrium 5's?

Price on this is cheaper than amazon - good find.

These are great sounding speakers. I have 4 of them running off of a tiny Lepai amp outside on my porch. They get plenty loud and sound very clear.

I've owned several Polk outdoor speakers in several homes; I think they are really good bang for the buck. Resistant to rust and still sounded pretty good for years (under eaves, to avoid direct rain contact).

One of the easiest setups is to buy an integrated receiver that has a Speaker A, Speaker B and *A + B* setting. Many, but not all, manufacturers offer this. I have had some from Sony, Kenwood, JVC and Yamaha that do over the years. This allows you to more easily direct the audio to where you want (and note that the A + B setting will allow for both indoor and outdoor speaker pairs to play simultaneously for example; this is handy for entertaining).

I also had that one receiver from JVC that had a dual infrared and radio frequency remote. I could be out back on the deck, pretty far away, and control the audio. This was a good feature.

I know a lot of folks in tech here in the Bay Area that spend tons of cash for fancy audio solutions that operate on smartphones or iPad, etc. But the simple hardwired speaker pair over the deck is a really simple, cheap, and straightforward solution, IMHO.

You can also just pick up a cheap speaker selector if your amp doesn't have A/B setup.

These speakers sound great. Side by side they out class the slightly less expensive Yamaha models all day. For a bit more I'd probably go with the Dayton outdoor speakers but these would keep most people plenty happy.

Good points. I was just saying that as he seemed to indicate he didn't have any amplifier or setup at all.

Good to hear about the outdoor Dayton speakers. I just started testing the little bookshelf Daytons that go on sale here every so often... for the price, and paired with a decent sub... I wish I had done it sooner.

I'm curious about the one outdoor Dayton model that seems to be designed to fit both inside corners outdoors or it also can be used (a few sets, presumably wired in parallel) wrapped around an exterior corner. Pretty creative design; very interested in hearing them in person.

Hey, this is a dumb query, but can I run these Daytons https://www.amazon.com/Dayton-Aud...B00CTWEDQ4 (both) off a single chromecast audio unit with some kind of splitter? (I don't need much volume at all.) Or does that only work with "powered" speakers. Is this a ludicrous question?

You'll need an amplifier.
