POLK AUDIO ATRIUM 4 & ATRIUM 5 ON-WALL SPEAKERS

The Polk Audio Atrium Outdoor speakers are some of the best available as they hit a very attractive price to performance ratio. They come in two sizes – a 4” and 5.25”.

A pair will cost £167.50 for the Atrium 4s and £205 for the Atrium 5s.

Visually, they look modern and stylish and will easily blend in to any outdoor décor in either the black or white options. They also offer a premium sound with no compromise – audio is clear with a punchy depth, which sounds especially nice when driven by a decent amplifier such as the Sony STR-DH190 or Sonos Amp.

The Polk Audio Atrium speakers are rated for all-weather, meaning they can be installed permanently without the worry of frost, rain, snow or sun. For peace of mind, Polk Audio carries a 5-year warranty.

Price: £167.50 / £205 per pair

BOWERS AND WILKINS AM-1 OUTDOOR SPEAKER

The Bowers and Wilkins AM-1 outdoor speakers are a premium option suited for people looking for the best-possible sound quality in their garden, patio or hot tub area.

The AM-1 has been designed internally and externally to maximise the bass output from the speaker, resulting in a very punchy low-end, while still retaining the clarity in the mids & highs. This makes for a very well-rounded and pleasing listening experience.

Build-wise, the AM-1 is constructed from a hard-wearing outer casing which makes it suitable for all weather and can be left outside all year round.

It includes a modern and stylish mounting bracket, allowing the speaker to be mounted vertically or horizontally.

Price: £569 per pair

LITHE AUDIO ROCK SPEAKER

The Lithe Audio Rock Speakers are a fantastic way to add audio to your garden or outdoor area in a subtle and discrete manner, with little-no installation.

Sound-wise, at 60W they offer a nice level of sound which isn’t overbearing, but enough to handle an outdoor party. They can cover a fairly large area too, and offer a very comfortable level of treble and bass.

You can connect to the rock speaker via Bluetooth from a phone or tablet, and all volume, playback and EQ control will be from here.

By design, the speakers are shaped and coloured like a rock, which can almost be used as a feature in your garden. This means they seamlessly blend into any shrubbery or flowerbed. They are IP68 rated making them suitable for all weather, meaning you can leave them outside all year long. For added peace of mind, as a Lithe Audio Pro Partner, Audio Volt offers a 3-year warranty.

The Lithe Audio Rock speaker can be purchased as a single or pair. Installation for both is incredibly easy. As they are floor mounted, they just need to be placed in their respective locations. The master speaker requires mains power, whereas the passive speaker will connect to the master with speaker cable, and is powered from this. With compatible outdoor speaker cable that can be buried, it will make for a clean and unobtrusive audio option.

Price: £199

SONOS ROAM PORTABLE WIRELESS SPEAKER WITH BLUETOOTH & WIFI

The Sonos Roam is a compact portable wireless speaker which offers a BIG sound. As to be expected from Sonos, the audio quality is top-notch and can easily be connected to for music on the fly.

Because it’s battery operated, no installation is required, simply take it outside and play music! You can connect to Roam via Bluetooth, or if available, connect to WiFi. If you already have other Sonos speakers, Roam will directly integrate into the system providing full control via their app.

Roam has an IP67 rating, which will withstand any weather. It can even survive submersion in water (for 30 minutes).

Price: £179

POLK AUDIO SAT300 & SUB100 GARDEN LANDSCAPE BUNDLE

The Polk Audio Atrium SAT Bundle comprises of Polk Audio SAT300 speakers and the SUB100 subwoofer. These have been made to complement each other and provide a premium sound quality.

The SAT300 speakers are capable of providing crisp and clear highs, with a decent mid-low end by themselves. Paired with the SUB100, depth is greatly improved, offering a full frequency range which will handle any outdoor party, BBQ or lively event.

The SUB100 by design is quite compact as to not take up too much space, making it perfect for smaller areas. The rugged housing can also be used as a table or stand, allowing it to blend into garden. 200W of power also ensures the bass can be set to a suitable level.

The SAT300 outdoor speakers are compact satellite speakers, which can installed and securely fixed into the ground, in a flower bed or edge of the lawn for example. The dark green casing will ensure they blend into the garden without looking out of place, and the casing itself is made from a rugged material which can withstand bumps and knocks from a lawn mower.

The SAT300 speakers are directional, meaning sound will travel in the direction they are facing. This is great for reducing bleed to areas you might not want sound, and will reduce noise spilling over into neighbouring gardens.

Both the SUB100 and SAT300 are IP66 rated for all weathers, and come with a 5-year warranty.

Price: Starts at £569
