    How would outdoor speakers such as the:

    Polk Audio Atrium4 sound when compared to something like the Klipsch Promedia 2?

    I am wondering as these speakers look good and look to have good build quality.

    75Hz-25kHz
    8 ohms

    Surely it should be the sound emitted and not the appearance of the device.

    First we have Nike running shoes used for walking and now outdoor speakers used indoors. You're one badass dude. :D

    the universe would probably implode if you were wearing your Nike running shoes to walk around indoors, whilst listing to tunes on your outdoor speakers.

    it's even to tricky to type. fast. 10 times.

    Actually, I hear there is a dB limit where if you use outdoor speakers indoors, you could blow an eardrum.

    Wait, wait, wait. Fist you have to explain how in heck you're going to put outdoor speakers indoors. This is surely non-trivial.

    His electric can opener would produce a higher SPL than these woefully inadequate 4.5" woofers could ever produce...

    think outside the box that is your house.

    if it's against code in his location, he could stick it to the man by mounting them outside close to the windows and pointing them inside the now open windows. semantics for the win.

    don't know that i've ever seen outside rated electric can openers, so that might be a problem.
