Hi, I am looking for some outdoor speakers to setup with my Sonos. My sonos has a built in amplifier that handles 55 Watts RMS per channel. I have been looking at some speakers for outdoors but I can't decide either going with Polk or Definitive Tech. I know DT makes the legendary Mythos so they have good feedback and I have always heard Polk makes good speakers too. The thing I can't decide on is if its worth paying extra for bigger speakers. For example, The DF AW5500 are rated from 10-175 watts while the Polk Atrium 6 are rated at 10-100 watts. Will I get more sound using the DF AW5500? For this example they both are the same price. But I want good quality speakers. Likewise the AW6500 are rated 10-200 watts and the Polk Atrium 7 are rated 10-125 watts so I really can't decide which is best. Keep in mind that the Polk Atrium 6 pair is 400 dollars so is the DT AW5500 and the Polk 7 is 500 dollars the pair so is the DT AW6500.
