Pros:Bang for the buck clarity, and efficiency

Cons:A ported enclosure may have helped low end, but could have ruined clarity.

I looked at Klipsch, Paradigm, JBL, Yamaha, and BOSE. After being frustrated with the price and/or mediocre sound I decided to listen to some Polks @ Circuit City. They were $159 for the pair. The Klipsch, Paradigm, and BOSE were all $300+. The Polks have clear mids and highs. The lows are as good as a 4 1/2" speaker is going to get. The Paradigm and Klipsch's sounded fantastic, but were also more than double the price of the Atriums.
In a nutshell it will be hard to top their clarity and price. It's a well built, efficient speaker. Give them a listen if you get an opportunity. Keep in mind all these speakers will have more bass response when you listen to them indoors. Mounting under eves outdoors will help to preserve the low end
