You'll have to custom-mount tweeters or midrange speakers, which usually requires drilling holes and running new wires.

Polk's db1001 tweeters make music shimmer and shine with high-frequency detail. Mount these liquid-cooled 1" silk/polymer dome tweeters in a good spot in your vehicle, and listen as they brighten up vocals, instrumentals, and percussion, bringing out musical nuances you would otherwise miss.

The in-line crossover allows only the appropriate frequencies to pass to the tweeters, while built-in protection circuitry guards against tweeter overload. You can flush- or surface-mount the tweeters with the included mounting cups.

Polk db1001 Tweeters

Written By Mike56, Marion, MA on Friday, August 22, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nicely packaged tweeters with crossover. Installed in the sail panels of a 2014 Tundra and ran them from a Soundstream amp. The kit comes with both surface and flush mounting, the only reason I did not give them 5 stars was the mounts. The speakers are supposed to snap into the plastic mounting bases, they were not secure and popped out a couple of times. I ended up putting a couple of daps of 5 minute epoxy and that solved the problem. They sound GREAT and I am very pleased, I ended up cutting the -3db gain wire to reduce the brightness. Would buy them again despite the mounting issue!

Pros: Excellent sound, well made driver, and crossover!

Cons: Mounts were a little disappointing, liked the flush and surface options.

Polk db 1001 tweeter

Written By JW-bach, Burnsville. MN on Monday, July 14, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A+ speakers. Using stock Radio/CD player speakers sound great. You can hear the snare drum, hi-hat, ride cymbals crsip and clean. They can handle the power with out distorting. Installed a 1997 Chevy S10 Blazer. The Polk db 1001 tweeters are replacing the stock tweeters in the dash. Recently replaced the speakers in front doors and rear doors with Polk Audio db 651s. Unbelievable sound. Normally I would have tone control at full open now it is at about half open. Test song Rush: Test for Echo, Stealy Dan:Deacon Blues.

Pros: Handle the power, Crsip and clean. Well built.

Cons: None.

Polk tweeters expose'

Written By Ken, Saluda, NC on Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great after market high end, Really opens up the upper frequencies to info that usually gets mired in the mid and top end which rolls off at 12K on OEM hardware. You'd be surprised at how much detail is there for the listening experience. Subtle and very pleasing to the ears of a 60+ y/o previous audiophile.

Pros: Working in conjunction with two pairs of DB571's, the tweeters are seamless. Located in the door panel of a 2013 Ford F150, they are a definite benefit to critical listening.

Cons: As always, Polk's instructions could be improved. It would be advantageous to tell the customer that the Attenuation "chokes" only work in one direction, otherwise they don't work at all. I listened to both using them and removing them and from my standpoint, they are far more open and transparent without the - 3db.

Polk Rocks

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Awesome tweeters! Installed in the A-pillars in my 2013 F150 Lariat crew cab. Used the factory grill covers for a clean look but had to modify some back mounting brackets.

Pros: I can actually tell I have tweeters now. I can't believe the cheap factory Sony speakers that they call a premium sound system!

Cons: None so far. Crutch field service is top notch as well.

Disappointed

Written By BenjaminJ, Battle Creek, MI on Saturday, June 15, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These tweeters were recommended to me because I have a set of 4 full range Polk speakers in the doors of my 2009 Saturn Outlook. Those Polks made a major improvement in the mid-range and bass of my 2009 Outlook. Although these new Polk tweeters improve the factory sound significantly, they really aren't providing what I consider to be good sound quality. Voices are reproduced better, but the highs are attenuated significantly. Of course this problem could be caused by my brand new $1,400 Kenwood Head Unit, but that is unlikely, considering my equalizer, when adjusted, doesn't fix the problem. The tweeters do sound better with my new head unit, than with the factory head unit, which is what I used when the tweeters were first installed. I've always heard the saying that Polk makes great speakers because Polk only focuses on speakers. Unfortunately, I don't think it is clear that Polk knows much about tweeters. I am far happier with the JBL tweeters I installed in my other car.

Installation was a hassle for these, but that is true for all after-market tweeters. I only mark Polk down for sound quality.

These tweeters are really just average.

Pros: Mounting similar to other tweeters Improvement on the factory tweeters Improved voice reproduction

Cons: Very poor high frequency reproduction Sound quality compares poorly to competitive sound.

Cymbals sound like cymbals, voices sound like voices, guitar strings like guitar strings...i think you get the point. Get these!

Pros: Sound quality, efficiency, durability, price, what else is there?

Cons: Surface mount angles awkward

Great sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good sound. Added a very clear treble element to my truck that was missing from the factory tweeters. Little tricky to install, but that's because there's no mounting bracket. Had to make one myself. Overall excellent buy and very pleased.

Pros: Excellent sound

These sound great on my boat....

Written By Dan N, Annapolis, MD on Friday, December 28, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These tweeters were suggested by Crutchfield tech after I told him my Bose Marine speakers sounded good, but not great. I already had a 300 w power amp on the Bose, but after adding an Access tech woofer and these Polk tweeters, the sound improved 10-fold. I love them.

Pros: Small, easy to install, look good, GREAT sound. Really brings out the highs. It really helps that they are marine grade so they can get wet.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Speakers! I actually was only going to replace the door speakers in my truck, but decided to get these too....Glad I did! Install manual is vague... So, to save you trouble...The Grey wire/Red Trace is Positive from the stereo to the crossover AND, from the crossover to the speaker. Took me a couple hours to install...But only because I wanted to use the stock brackets.....And I am extremely picky! After an hour+ ....Gave up on using the Nissan stock mounts....They Will NOT work... or more precisely, they would look bad! And who wants a bad looking install? Save yourself the trouble, pop the holes, insert the "cup" & be done with it. I am only powering the 2-Db651's & these Db1001's with my receiver " a "Pioneer DEH-P310UB" & it sounds great. The 1001's come with the Wiring if you were wondering. Went from the dash to the receiver with about 8" to spare. Crutchfield was Great as always!

Lousy instructions

Written By Anonymous, Massillon, ohio on Saturday, June 11, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instruction manual ( polk ) is worthless for my db1001 tweeters. It doesn't explain how to mount or even more importantly, how to wire the speakers. They give you this strange little resistor packet or crossover, or whatever it is, with no explanation as to what it is, or what I'm supposed to do with it. The crutchfield manual tells me that I'm supposed to fashion a mounting bracket for these speakers. WHAT? And it doesn't even hint as to how I'm supposed to do that! I was able to mount the db651s speakers easily enough, but the supplied wiring harness is garbage, and I'll have to redo it. Can't give an actual review on the speakers until I can figure out how to mount and wire the stupid things.Not happy with POLK at all. Not sure about crutchfield yet.

[Editor's Note: Our Technical Department has emailed additional wiring and mounting information to you, and are available to further assist you.]

Polk db1001 1"

Written By Big AL, Sherman Oaks, CA on Sunday, May 22, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these awesome tweeters in my 2006 Ford Ranger ex-cab, and they compliment my system very well and open up the soundscape to a new level. I replaced the head unit with a Pioneer DEH-P8300UB, which is awesome, and paired together I am able to hear more of the music than ever before. I can hear intricate guitar parts and vocal harmonies that were muddled before, and the quality of the sound makes you feel like your listening to a live performance! These tweeters actually have that quality, to take the listener into the center of the music and make you "feel like your part of it", when your listening to music in your car, or in my case, my truck. Polk provides mounting hardware for multiple applications which is great, everything you need is in the box which is also nicely packaged. The install was super easy because they went into existing locations and I was done in less than one hour. I reccomend this product to anyone who is looking to enhance their stereo system and "be part of the music"! So get yourself a couple of pairs and "get INTO your music". :^)

Present for my boyfriend

Written By Alyssa, Johns Creek, GA on Monday, January 31, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these tweeters for my boyfriend's birthday a couple weeks ago. He has upgraded his stereo system in his '07 Dodge Ram with speakers, subs, an amp, and a pioneer flip-out stereo headunit. He said the only thing that was missing was a set of tweeters. He was so excited when he opened these up and had them installed right away. His truck sounds 10X better than before! The Polk tweeters balance the sound out perfectly and create that crisp smooth tone to any song. Amazing product for a great price and fast shipping! Highly recommend.

High end help

Written By Ken, Glastonbury, Conn. on Thursday, October 21, 2010

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these tweeters in the front door pillar of an F150 SuperCab, coupled with MM571's in the front door and db571's in the rear. Big difference in presence and staging. I listen to a lot of jazz and vocals and they really bring out the high end, even in an otherwise noisy truck. I was not dissappointed. Their actually a 4 1/2 rating. Now all I have to do is install a sub!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

At first I was a little concerned after installing these POLK AUDIO db1001's in my FJ Cruiser dash because these little tweeters were loud and overpowering my door woofers a bit.... But then I discovered that when I turned down my treble on my FJAMMER head unit (factory stereo that is very underated -- I actually love this Toyota FJammer and it has great power!! -- not a normal factory head as you might expect).... Once I turned my treble down on the FJammer, I now have the best blend ever of all my component speakers in my car (Co-Axial woofers in door 6x9), (Bazooka 3.5-inch rear pillars in back), and an (6.5-inch Bazooka Sub in back)...

Anyway, my car is really dialed in with fantastic, controlled, beautiful sound --- the frequencies are all covered nicely and blend well... These POLK AUDIO tweeters are a HUGE part of the overall clean sound and can handle it when I crank up the volume very loud... HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!..... very happy!!!!!

Sweet!!

Written By AB, Dayton, TX on Monday, February 22, 2010

I installed 2 sets in November of 07 on my 03 F-150 along with some 6X7 momos and they sound sweet! The highs are detailed and sound crisp. I have to recommend these to anyone looking to get a set or two, they are definitely worth it!

I just replaced the dash-mounted 3 1/2s in my Grand Cherokee with these tweeters. They sound great - very crisp and clear, and much better than any 3 1/2s I've heard. It was a very worthwhile upgrade. I'm giving them a 4 because the installation was pretty bad. The instructions in the book didn't really match what was in the box. I expected better than that from Polk.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

replaced factory tweeters in my 2008 jeep w/o infinity system...not an easy job in new jeeps. be prepared to take out most of your dash. polk has 1 owners manual for all their speakers, though these tweeters were listed on the cover of the manual they werent mentioned anywhere in the manual. crutchfield doesnt supply wiring harness from 2008 wrangler factory harness(youll have to splice). the positive, they sound very good , very crisp highs, and were reasonably priced. just a pain to install in the factory mounted tweeters in a jeep. that being said, you install them once you listen to them daily so definitely worth it.

Good Metallic Tweets

Written By tower, Houston, TX on Friday, November 21, 2008

The first thing you'll notice about these tweeters is sheer weight. They use a larger magnet than most, which is a good indication that they can take alot more abuse than those little plastic tweeters. The crossover is not "adjustable" per say, its actually more like a big in-line bass-blocker than a crossover, but it makes for an easier install without a big box to hide.

They get pretty loud and are reliable, my only complaint would be that metallic tweeters are a little harsh on the ears (but some people like it that way).

I brought the polk audio db1001 1inch tweeters for my 07 Tacoma and they work great. The tweeters comes with mounting brackets but i had to get on taco tunes to buy brackets to bolt the tweeters on. I uses the tweeter cups and the taco tune brackets. (Note if you use the cups put three pieces of electrical tape to make a tight fit.) Hope this helps. I never put speakers in a pt cruiser. Good luck man. [ DAWN  Jun 29, 2014 ]
This comes with 2 different styles of mounting brackets. You should be good to go. [ MICHAEL J  Jun 29, 2014 ]
I put these in the dash of my Mercedes G500. The speakers come with a plastic holding bracket. This did not work in my G , so I cut the factory bracket from the factory speakers and glued the factory bracket to the new Polk bracket to make it work. I love the speakers. Good luck with your install. Alex G [ KELLY G  Jun 29, 2014 ]
I installed my Polk tweeters in a 91 Toyota pickup. I'm not sure about your specific installation, but these tweeters do come with surface mount and flush mount hardware. I installed mine flush mount which did require modification to mounting area..ie: drilling holes. But everything I needed for the mounting was in the box, brackets, cups, etc. They do an excellent job, sound good! [ tony  Jun 28, 2014 ]
Jonathan, The db1001's allow two methods of mounting: you can either use the supplied external brackets, or, as I did on a 2013 F150, the door pillars allow a flush mounting also. Only problem is that you have to use a 2" hole saw for the opening. They are great add-on tweeters. You will not be disappointed. [ Ken  Jun 28, 2014 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The Polk tweeters have a built in crossover on them so they won't be compatible with the Sound Ordnance crossover or component set. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Mar 15, 2014 ]  Staff
