Polk Audio db461p

Dedicated to precision

Good music becomes great when you hear it through Polk's db Series car speakers. Polk engineers use laser imaging to determine the ideal combination of speaker materials and design to eliminate distortion. The resulting technology produces speakers with smooth frequency response, sharp detail, and the ability to play music at high volumes without strain.

Polk's db461p plate speakers feature 4" woofers made from a polymer/mica composite and durable rubber surrounds that won't fall apart under stress from heat, moisture, or time. Polk mounts the liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeter apart from the woofer so you get the improved performance of separate components from a single speaker. The built-in 2-way crossovers keep the high and low frequencies flowing to the proper drivers for improved imaging.

Whether you've got a factory radio or an aftermarket stereo, these efficient speakers will spice up your daily drive. And Polk certifies their db Series speakers for marine applications, so they're a great choice for your boat, motorcycle, or ATV.

Product Highlights:

  • 4"x6" plate 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • 4" polymer/mica composite woofer with butyl rubber surround and Kapton voice coil
  • 3/4" liquid-cooled silk/polymer composite dome tweeter with Neodymium magnet
  • built-in 2-way crossover network
  • marine-certified for use in boats, convertibles, motorcycles, and ATVs
  • stainless steel mounting hardware (certified for marine use)
  • power range: 4-50 watts RMS (150 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 71-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-13/16"

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace the factory speakers in my 89 GMC Sierra regular cab. They didn't come close to fitting. Rather than send them back I decided to try to install them in the dash. After a little modification and a few choice words they fit and sound great. I'm pretty sure none of the 4x6 plate speakers will fit in that speaker location behind the seats. Needless to say, I'm a little disappointed with Crutchfield.

Pros: Clear sound, cool looking, surprisingly good bass.

Cons: Require plenty of install space.

Replaced the factory dash speakers in an 03 Wrangler. Perfect fit with the adapters, easy install. Sound great. Very little bass, but I was expecting that. Paired with Polk speakers in the sound bar and for the bass duties, a 15 yr old 200w Optimus amp and 10" MTX sub that I dug out of the closet. All combine to wake up the Sony head unit.

Pros: Clear sound, good mids and highs, perfect fit.

How do they geat such great sound out of a tiny, little speaker? These things work great, a tremendous improvement over the 20 yo OEM speakers. They were not, however easy to install in my daughters Jeep. I had to remove the hardtop, windshield, and dashboard to get them in properly. (Just not enough room to work due to the massive magnets on these speakers.)

Pros: Great sound

Cons: Hard to install in a 1994 Jeep Wrangler


Written By Michael L, Anniston, Al on Thursday, April 24, 2014

I had these for 3 months and waited till after the break in period to write this. they are great speakers. from looks you would expect more bass but they cover mids and highs great. they are paired with polk DXi651s in the fronts and they are a really great match. the headunit is a kenwood excelon kdc-397. i couldnt be happier. huge improvement over stock where i only had 2 speakers working with stock headunit.

Pros: great speakers. they really scream when the volume is about 28 on the headunit. no amp needed

Excellent plate speaker

Written By David, Kansas City, MO on Sunday, March 23, 2014

I installed these in my 02 Wrangler, and they did not disappoint. Very clear and crisp highs and mids. It sounds amazing as all Polk speakers should off of my alpine cda-105 with no other amplification. I had to modify the speaker pod that was in my wrangler, but it was so worth it from an SQ standpoint. Being in a sealed enclosure does help them handle a little more power. While you're not going to get thumping bass from this speaker, I was happy with the overall tonal quality of this speaker. After all it is only a 4x6 plate. Overall I will be buy this series again.

Pros: Clean and crisp sound, Good packaging, Good looking unit.

Cons: none.

Great Jeep dash speaker no wire adapters needed

Written By Angelo, Va Beach on Tuesday, January 21, 2014

These great marine grade speakers fit perfectly in the TJ's dash with the supplied adapters, don't try to fabricate adapters yourself, it takes so much time and effort, its worth the bucks (they come free if you order them with speakers here). The wiring adapters are not needed (but again they come free), just snip the old harness off and crimp in two clip adapters from your local autozone that fit the back of the new speaker. simple, save bucks. All around a great speaker, expect notable improvements in full spectrum sound quality. If you choose to wire them to an external amp, you will get even more adaptability and quality, but plug and play with stock or aftermarket radio they work just fine.

Pros: Easy to install, solid quality, marine grade

Cons: N/A

Great replacement speakers for Jeep

Written By JohnD, Virginia Beach, VA on Friday, November 22, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sounded great powered by an aftermarket head unit. Handle plenty of power and are a huge improvement over the factory speakers. Crutchfield sent the adapters with the speakers so it was a bolt-in affair to install in the dashboard of my 2003 Jeep Wrangler.

Pros: Great sound Plenty powerful Easy install in the Jeep Marine certified (so hopefully durable in the Jeep)

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Setup with 600 MHz bass blockers and foam surrounds on an Alpine deck. Perform well at low volume level but when listening at higher volume levels these speakers loose their clarity rather quickly and become distorted. Build quality looks good and should hold up to outdoor use. Overall these are acceptable replacement speakers.

Pros: Marine Certified Good clarity at low volume

Cons: Poor clarity at high volume

Great Sound, Crisp Highs and Clear Mids, Durability Questionable

Written By KevinP, Orange,CA on Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I got these speakers in December 2012 and they have been installed for 4 months now. I installed them myself with the Crutchfield included factory wire harness adapter. For a 4x6 speaker, they have a fair amount of Bass but nothing spectacular. The woofer excels at producing clear Mids and the tweeters produce very crisp but not harsh Highs. Cymbals sound spectacular and the snare in the drum kit is more pronounced now. I love them. Unfortunately, the driver side speaker has developed a crackling just 3 months after install. It was intermittent at first and now it is constant. I have taken the door apart 4 times, checked to make sure the wiring is good, there is no loose internal door components, and that the dust cover is securely fastened to the door. Nothing has helped. I have contacted Polk and they will be replacing the speaker under warranty once I have the time to remove it and send it to them. I will write another review once I receive the replacement speaker and install it. These speakers are driven by a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X395 so I know they have not been overpowered. I also do not turn the volume above 30 (Max 35) and have not heard any distortion or peaking in any of the other speakers. Makes me wonder what would happen if I drove these with an amp to their rated 50 watts. Overall a GREAT speaker, just with questionable reliability but FANTASTIC customer service from Polk.

Pros: Clear Mids, Crisp and clean Highs, Well Built, Premium Materials

Cons: Plastic Frame, Lacks much bass for Lows, Questionable Reliability

Great Jeep Wrangler in dash replacement

Written By Chris, Louisville, KY on Sunday, April 28, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great looking replacement for your in dash speakers for the Wrangler that sound decent. I wish they would have a little better quality sound but that may be due to my older head unit or by contact with the dash frame. I need to investigate this further... Would give 5 stars if it fit a little better.

Pros: Looks great and sounds decent

Cons: Not a exact fit; lots of mounting options, you just have to choose which works best for you and make it fit.

Good fit, average sound

Written By ss195, New York on Monday, April 01, 2013

Replaced factory set of rear speakers in Silverado using stock amp. Good improvement in mid/high response but degraded bass respose. Factory speakers actually reproduced lower frequencies than these. Fit well in stock locations without modification. Plan on replacing them again so I can get some bass.

Pros: Decent basket construction, ok mid/high sound, do not distort easily.

Cons: No bass at all, none, even at low volumes. Other speakers available for less cost that perform as well.

The Plastic Frame is Junk

Written By Pete, Wisconsin on Saturday, October 20, 2012

I would give this product a 0 if I could. I just insatllaed these 3 weeks ago in the back door of my 2011 GMC Sierra. In all fairness I did not buy these from Crutchfield. Installation was easy, they fir well and sounded good. Today I had a short in the spreakers, thought a wire may have dropped offf, couldn't be more wrong. Whe I took the inside door panel off the drivers side door I could not believe what I saw. The entire frame had broken around each screw. There was nothing holding the speaker in place at all and the rest of the frame had also been destroyed. Then I took the passenger panel off and that speaker was even worse. The frame around the woofer had actually broken along with the rest of the frame. I have a stock head unit and no amplifier. I do like to play the music loud but come on, this is absolutely unacceptable.

Pros: Fit was good, sounded good when lasted.

Cons: Frames are plastic and just junk.

Written By RLH, Omaha, Nebraska on Sunday, September 09, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Clear precise sound is my opinion of this product. A driver of this size is not capable of delivering a lot of bass, but neither is any other driver of this size. If you want bass you need to add an appropriate subwoofer. As to the value, I cite the law of diminishing returns. You would have to spend a lot more for an incremental increase in quality.

Pros: Accurate sound, good value, easy installation

Cons: None so far

01 Silverado Ext. Cab

Written By KevinC, Mesa, AZ. on Friday, April 20, 2012

OK speakers at best. They sound good but are not durable. I have them hooked up on my JL amp with 75 watts RMS and never turn it up past 30% max volume (about 25 watts I figure). Under these conditions I have now blown out 3 sets of these in about 1 and 1/2 years. I spoke to Polk about this and they directed me to get a specific capacitor which I did and I installed this. It helped some but I still blew out another set (the 4" driver voice coil seizes up and then its one big tweeter). Added an electronic crossover to eliminate lows that Polk engineers stated blew the speakers and that helped my last set last for about 6 months but they blew out this week. At least Polk has been very good about replacing them for free every time, until now. I need to find something else for the rear doors in my Silverado ext. cab. Oh and the first sets plastic mounting frame fell apart (disintegrated), likely due to Arizona's hot dry summers, which caused the speakers to fall out of the doors.

Pros: Easy to install. Nice sound if you run them at about 10 - 15 Watts RMS and no more. Good looks.

Cons: Not durable. Dont handle the power they state they can (blow out very easy at about 25 watts RMS). Make sure to get an electronic crossover or capacitor to block bass in order to help extend their life if hooking them to an Amp.

I installed Polk Audio db461p in the dash of my 96 S10 the are hands down the best 4x6 speaker I've ever heard. I'm running them off my deck . Cristal clear highs, good mids, not really meant for lows though but that's what subs are for. I did need to modify the passengers side speaker cover because it wouldn't fit back on (just had to cut the very corner of the speaker bracket off doesn't effect the speaker at all). I planed on installing tweeters as well but after installing these I realized I don't need them. The highs or more then enough to go with my 12" Kicker CompVT subwoofer.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these speakers to replace rear 4"x6" factory ones. The speakers can
handle some power and have a good response, you can tell the separate
tweeter/woofer design makes a difference. That being said, the high's are a
slightly muted and the lows are a bit suppressed, but with 4"x6"'s, one should
not expect a big bass. All-in-all, a quality set of speakers for the price.

I was really impressed in the improvement they made over my factory front speakers. When I ordered the db461p's, Crutchfield recommended that I also order the foam baffles that enclose the rear of the speakers. When I got them installed I immediately noticed a nasty low frequency buzz in these rear speakers. It turned out that the baffles were creating a vibration where they came in contact with the outside skin of the rear door. Crutchfield says that these baffles compress to fit behind the speakers. They didn't mention that they cause this nasty buzz. After removing the baffles the problem was solved and the speakers sound great. So I would recommend the speakers but would pass on the baffles if going in the rear doors of a Silverado ext. cab.

sound great, still have to mess with the eq quite a bit, but so far way better the the pioneer speakers i have up front.

IMPORTANT: you will have to cut a little bit to make these fit in to the pillar of these trucks, for 03-06 they all are the same, not sure about earlier models, or newer

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers for my 2001 s10. It says on Crutchfield that none
of the 4x6 they sell will fit in the dash. These fit if you modify it just a little.
When you take off the speaker cover on the dash and take out the
speakers there is a little plastic peice on the dash (facing the outside on
both sides). Just knock it off with a hammer and screw driver. On the
speaker cover you take a hacksaw and cut the two plastic things (where
the screws go in) even with the plastic oval ring. Then all you do is line it
up! You can use all the old bolts and screws. I have Infinity Kappa in the
door and two 12" Infinity Kappa subs in the back. I decided to try Polk
because they were about $30 cheaper then the Kappa 4x6. They sound
amazing! They are really bass sensative too, but still sound awesome.

Speakers are okay.

I own a 2005 Jeep Wrangler I used these speakers to replace the stock speakers I had. The speakers are okay, I think I was expecting a bit more from them. For the Wrangler the front speakers are just accessory speakers. Invest your money into a great set of speakers for the roll bar. That is where most of your sound will be generated. The sound bar it supose to hold 5"1/4 speakers. With a drill bit I was able to install JBL 6"1/2 speakers, HUGE difference! I think that 4 x 6 speakers are not powerful enough to give good quality sound. Also the location of the dash speakers in Wranglers is HORRIBLE. Some one in another post stated about trying to fit a large speaker in the front rather than the 4 x 6. I think is the way to go.

[Editor's Note: The adapter needed to install 4x6" speakers in the wrangler dash is no longer available. We now recommend 4" speakers for this location.]

99 Silverado rear pillars

Written By smoke.z71, North Georgia on Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced factory speakers in a 99 Silverado regular cab with these. Great
sound even with the Delco cd player. I'd recommend them for any

Just want to second what another reviewer said about installing in a reg.
cab GM full size pickup. Thankfully, I read his review before installing.
Saved my old pillar brackets and reused them. The spacers kept the
magnets from sticking to the inside of the pillar post. That's a slim, narrow
spot once you get in there and the cutout in the sheetmetal is designed to
accomodate a standard 4x6.

Overall, a great set of speakers. All that hard work was worth it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased the combo of db 4 x 6 for the dash and 5 1/4 for the roll cage and couldn't be happier with the crystal clear rich sound they provide; at this time I have the factory head unit with XM radio. I will eventually get a new cd player and would like to add a small sub for a little added bass but until Crutchfield came through again. I will definitely buy the other components from them! Thanks to customer service for answering all my questions; stellar job.

Oh and the install couldn't have been easier with the wiring harness included. All I needed was a Phillips screwdriver and 15 minutes...done!

Sounds alot better then stock

Written By Gene, Front Dash on Thursday, February 12, 2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They are in Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with the factory head unit. They sound great, much better then stock. I had to cut the base on the head ubit or they get a little boomy. I can turn the radio up all the way with no distortion. Im sure they will sound much better when I replace my head
unit with the Alpine XD100.

Great Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers was recommended by Crutchfield for my sons Chevrolet Pickup, and they work excellent. The installation was ok, but if you install them in a regular cab Chevy pickup 99 and up you will need to remove the old plastic spacer piece from the old speaker mounts and use them on the new speakers or they will not fit with out the large magnet on the new speakers sticking to the truck body, and that will ruin your new speakers. When I put the spacers on it was perfect.

If your stuck with a 4by6 speaker size and don't want box speakers laying around, (leaving room for good stuff like Subs) the Polk db 461p is a excellent choice. extreme crystal clear highs with a small punch. Very sensitive to bass, but tunable to achieve what you really would expect from these sizes in reality of capability.Please note; using Kenwood Excelon 591 receiver w/4 volt pre-outs through zn9 Streetwires RCAs into excelon x-40 amp witch is 70rms into that Polk 461p. They absolutely love it. They take about 85% of the amp max (sensitivity). For little guys...they are sweet. Started with Excelon 4by6. wasn't happy. same price for the Polk also. kenwood rated 20 rms 100max, best they had. The Polk advertises 50rms and 150 peak. You will hear every bit of that rated power, crystal Screamin clear. Peace

Incredible Highs

Written By Cord, Harper, KS on Monday, August 20, 2007

I'm not going to sit here and tell you that I was dissapointed or astounded by the bass output on these speakers. Because thats not what they were made for. What I will tell you is that the highs these things deal out are nothing less than incredible. They are just so clean and clear, with no distortion. I currently have them powered off my head unit, and I can turn it up all the way and they just will not distort. The only way they could be better is if they were MOMO's or the SR series, but they are just so much more expensive. Anyway, they are the best for the money in the world.

Product Research


Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.

Woofer Cones: Each speaker features a Dynamic Balance polymer/mica composite mineral-filled cone. The cones are stiff and lightweight for big sound and low distortion.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds.

Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The speakers feature 3/4" liquid-cooled silk/polymer composite tweeters for clearer, more accurate highs.

2-way Crossover Network: The built-in 2-way crossover network sends the appropriate frequencies to each driver for cleaner sound and better imaging.
