Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio db5250

Dreaming about better sound in your car audio system? Do you want lows that are full and definitive? Highs that resonate with clarity? Stop dreaming! Polk's db Series db5250 component system uses 5-1/4" Dynamic Balance polymer/mica woofers to produce full, rich lows that are free of detail-robbing distortion. Rubber surrounds, Kapton voice coil formers, and pole plate heat sinks protect the woofers against the stresses of heat and time.

Rubber surrounds, Kapton voice coil formers, and pole plate heat sinks protect the woofers against the stresses of heat and time.

The liquid-cooled silk/polymer composite tweeters can be mounted in either flush- or surface-mount cups to project detailed highs where you want to hear them. The 2-way crossover networks (4,000 Hz, 12 dB/octave) ensure smooth, well-balanced output, with built-in protection circuitry to guard your tweeters against accidental damage from high power.

Don't limit yourself to only using these speakers in your car — they've passed tough environmental testing that certifies them for marine use as well.

I bought these to replace the stock front door speakers in a 2008 F-150 Crew Cab. A definite improvement over the stock speakers, but I would recommend adding a sub woofer or two if you like bass like I do. They are being powered by an external Alpine amp and sound great.

2001 Mustang w/Mach 460

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am writing this review to help all the other Mustang owners out there with the Mach 460. I know how much of a pain it is to try and get speakers to go along with the system. <BR><BR>Awesome speakers. My front passenger door panel woofer went out in my car (as does for alot of Mustang owners). So finding a speaker wasnt easy because of the component speakers that come stock. I wasnt sure that these would work in my system but i decided to try them out. The woofers went in without any problems. I didnt use the crossovers because you dont really need them because the Mach 460 already sends out the highs and lows out sepretely. The tweeters were a lil of a pain to get in, one problem i had was that there was no bracket to install the tweeters in, so i had to make something up myself. Non the less it all works and sounds AWESOME. So much clearer then it was.<BR><BR>Another downfall is this. The system works great when the car is just has the radio on, but when the car is started it doesnt have enough power so they cut out over half volume. The tech said i need an amp, i was really hoping to just get the speakers and thats it, but not gonna happen. Im not too upset about it, but hey it happens. But im still not gonna dis these speakers, they are really great and have a great price.

1989 BMW 325I
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought a set of these for my 89 BMW 325i, and have them running off of a Kenwood CD Deck with 22 wrms, and no external amp. Man do these things kick! I have the db650s in the rear, and for everything but rap there is no need for a subwoofer. The lows are pure and punchy, the mids clear and full, and the highs are crystal. A 10x improvement over the stock radio. Every song sounds new as I can now pick out previously unheard sounds.<BR><BR>Installation was fairly straight forward, just time consuming as I had to cut 2 2" holes in my door skins. Wiring was simple and easily described in the install instructions.<BR><BR>The power handling of the components is evident over that of the 2-ways, as I have to have a bit of front fade to prevent the rears from distorting prematurely.<BR><BR>Overall, I am extremely pleased with these speakers. At this price they pack an enormous value... One more thing, everyone knows that Crutchfield service is top notch, and this experience was no exception. My speakers actually arrived early with the free ground shipping.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Why am I bothering to install speakers in such an old car? But the stock speakers were literally falling apart. Ive kept this car in really good condition for all these years. might as well get some new speakers. The price seemed reasonable for replacement speakers.<BR><BR>Some Tips<BR>1. 5.25" woofers will fit factory door opening, but the magnet is much larger so you need to cut out the rear of the plastic speaker housing.<BR>2. Dremel out the factory AR tweeter housing just large enough to fit the tweeter mounts (non-flusing mounting ones). This is the best way to retain the factory appearance.<BR>3. use wire taps instead of cutting off the factory speaker harnesses (just in case you want to use them again)<BR>4. Crossover can be mounted with double-sided tape on the door panel under the arm rest<BR>5. Grind down the plastic reinforcements to the arm rest of the door panel to make things are flush for the crossover<BR>6. Keep the factory metal tweeter mounts as this will be needed to keep the db5250 tweeters in place inside the AR housing<BR>7. Place the crossover as inward as possible on the door panel so it doesnt interfere with placing the panel back onto the door.<BR>8. Factory AR tweeters use a capacitor glued to itself as a passive crossover. So if replacing the tweets, make sure to install the crossover included with db5250 and bypass the factory tweeter wiring.<BR><BR>Hard to give a real assessment of sound quality as anything would have sounded better than my factory speakers. Powering the speakers directly from Sony F7715X head unit. Id have to say that the clarity in the highs is pretty good. I think the low-range s

1999 Acura 3.2TL
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced the factory Bose front door speakers with these and they sound great. I had to turn down the treble because the tweeters are very bright. My system was lacking that clarity, and I now have it. <BR><BR>You can run this with a factory head unit (99 TL), but you definitely need a subwoofer, as the mids are OK but the lows are non-existent. <BR><BR>Crutchfield shipped it to my APO address in 7 days, and priority mail to boot, at no extra charge. And the speaker holders / wire harness helped quite a bit. One thing that could be improved is the wiring harness should have MALE clips on the end, not female. If it had male, then I could have run the cable right to it from the crossover. But splicing was not too bad, as the tweeters had male connectors and cutting them off worked well. <BR><BR>One last note: In my application, the tabs that extend from the factory speaker holder have to be clipped off or it won't fit.

Not for use without a sub

Written by: JasonB from Nashville, TN on June 5, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers along with a Profile AP1200 amp for my '05 Prius. On first listen I was shocked at how bright these speakers were in comparison to factory. I thought I had made a mistake. But after a couple days with them and a few EQ tweeks, I'm pleased as punch. The detail these speakers produce are amazing. I'm hearing subtleties in vocal reverbs, layers of guitars, and percussion that I usually can only pick out when using my headphones at home. <BR><BR>I would not recommend these speakers to anyone looking to replace factory speakers without a sub. I'm not running a sub, but plan on purchasing a powered sub from Crutchfield as soon as I can afford to (which was always my plan). Although I have the bass boost up on the profile amp and do get adequate bass, it certainly isn't convincing. And when you consider the incredible job they do from mid on up, it would be a shame to not pair these with a sub. <BR><BR>Lastly, kudos to the Crutchfield tech support group! They are phenomenal in their expertise and courtesy, and the reason why I return to Crutchfield. <BR>

Install in 05 Jeep Wrangler

Written by: Bruce P. from Memphis, TN on May 3, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great Speakers. Was looking for something that i could put out a lot of sound with when the top is down on the jeep. Not a lot of low thump, but a subwoofer covered that. Installation was straightforward. Had to drill 2 holes in speaker housing to externally mount the tweeters. Crossover will fit in speaker enclosure (with some double stick tape :-). Wiring harness provided made the whole installation take less than 1 hour. Again a great experience from Crutchfield.

2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Fit great in my '06 F250. The screws that come with the speakers for attaching to the door didn't match exactly to the truck and a couple rattled loose within a couple days so I just swapped them out. These speakers are for the $$ the best buy in my opinion. The highs can be ear piercing. They hit pretty good on mid level bass, but don't expect to be droppin it like it's hot. I'm adding a couple subs since I listen to such a wide variety of music. These speakers can't handle the bass in some of the music I listen to, but they are not designed to do that. They give you crystal clear sound and I couldn't ask for more. I powered them with a Profile 1040 4-channel amp. I also have the 5x7 Polk DB's in the rear side panels.

Polks Been Good To Me So Far

Written by: Scott from Dallas, Tx on January 10, 2007

I did my first stereo install with these speakers in my 1997 BMW 328i and man did I have a time routing the wires and everything (a good 10 hour install time) but this was due to my inexperiance and the fact that well it was a BMW. Finally I got the speakers in and my car back together and pieced it together with a Pioneer DEH-P580MP head unit and they sound great! True they do sound a bit brassy but I have yet to install new rear speakers or subwoofer so I think if I do that and route the lows to the sub they will sound FANTASTIC. I have a 5 channel surround system made by Polk and I have come to the conclusion Polk is excellent.<BR><BR>For anyone looking for a great component without spended over $200 this is the set!<BR><BR>

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They really sound great, but you need to have an amp. I'm using the Infinity Reference 7541a and they really sound good. They are great speakers to set your front sound stage with, I'll probably need a small sub woofer, around 8&quot; [I listen to rock] to really complete the setup.<BR><BR>I installed these in a 1992 Nissan Maxima, Crutchfield said they didn't fit, and well they didn't. I wasn't expecting them too. I had a Bose sound system [factory] in the car and the speakers were mounted in 1/4 inch plastic box type thing. With a lot of cutting [wish I had a Dremel] they fit, and I don't regret it. I have yet to mount the tweeters somewhere, I don't know if I like how they sound higher on the door or lower. <BR><BR>In closing, these speakers sound a lot bigger than they are. I highly recommend them.

2003 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this product based on the reviews and I am very happy with my purchase. I installed these in the dash on my 2003 wrangler (need adapter plates) and they sound great. This was the last piece in my car stereo upgrade. The problem I was having that with the little 4x6 Rockford speakers in the dash was that the speakers could not balance out the sound. It sounded like a live concert was happening just right behind my drivers seat. I purchased these and I am now in the perfect position to hear everything. Some have said that the treble is a little high. For a convertable it is not bad to be a little over the top with sound. I know have Polk in the front, RFosgate in the speaker bar and 2 subs behind the rear seat.

The best component system for the money

Written by: Eric from Joliet, IL on August 19, 2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First off, let me say that I had to pick up my set of these as a scratch & dent because they simply sell out too fast as new items. I have a set of the Polks in my 2005 Cavalier in kick panels along side Polk DB400 in the doors and DB960 in the deck lid. The components are driven off of a Pioneer DEH-P3700MP head unit with a Profile HA1040 amp boasting 80W RMS X 4. The sound that all these speakers produce together is simply amazing. My vehicle with these Polks have been compared to sounding better then luxury vehicles having 10 speaker Bose systems that cost more than my whole car. The crossovers, although simple in design, do a great job of blending the highs and lows together seemlessly. The tweeters are a hair bright but simply turning down the treble took care of that. The woofers are nicely designed and perform just as well as they look. If your looking for a nice set of components that won't drain your wallet, get the Db5250's. You won't be dissappointed.

Crank Em UP

Written by: Pimpmyody from Snoqualmie, WA on July 22, 2006

These speakers rock. I have them connected to a Pioneer DEH-P3800MP CD/MP3/WMA Player and they simply sound great. But I have to say that the sound was high on the brassy end as the bass is only moderate. I added an Audiobahn ATB8AT8" subwoofer enclosure with 100-watt amplifier and set the crossover to drive the bass there. WOW! Now these Polks sound incredible up front - great on vocals and instrumentals, rock and jazz. The only challenge installing these on my Honda Odyssey - suburban dads have a jones for good tunes, too - was that the crossover has to stay in door unless you are ready to do a lot of work. With the help of the Crutchfield team, I decided to attach mine with heavy-duty Velcro inside the panel. Works great. <BR>

I must say that these speakers are hands down some of the best I've ever heard. My roommate has some infinity components and I used to have some alpine 6x9's but those simply dont compare to the DB5250's. Especially if you manage to get the second pair half off! These babies get so loud in the relatively big cab of my 4door f-150 off of my pioneer HU. I must say I was a little skeptical at the size of them when I first opened the box, but that was blown out the window the second I turned on my truck. I use a drive+play to supply these babies with tunes- really impressive. Dont doubt yourself about buying these speakers, for the price, you cant beat em!

2001 Honda Civic DX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just purchased the Polk Audio db5250 for my 2001 Honda Civic dx coupe. I had little problems installing the mid's into the factory door location due to sides of speaker rubbing onto door hole location. I just cut out template using 3/4" MDF for speakers to mount to. I had to drill holes into the door to secure the templates to. Then I was able to mount speakers to the 3/4" MDF with no problems. The factory door panels went on with no problem as well. I also installed the crossovers inside of the door as well and secured using wire ties so they don't move around inside the door. The window will still roll down with no interference. I drilled 2" holes just next to the door latch close to the pane. Perfect fit there. I hooked them up to a Kenwood KAC-PS150 amplifier. The 2" dome tweeters produce some ear-piercing highs and I am very pleased with them. The mid-bass is great at producing some lows. All in all I am very pleased with these component speakers. I would highly recommend especially for those who love to have their highs. I have always been a big fan of Polk Audio and will continue to purchase their products. I hope this helps you determine on whether or not to use these for your system and you should be very happy with them.

First time buying Polk

2004 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the db 5250 and I got the db525 at half price and let me say that they were a great deal. After installing them in my Ford, (factory H/U + no amp + large truck = low sound) I didn't like the way they sounded so i took them out and put them in my 95 Nissan 200SX/SE. They replaced some worn out Infinity 6 1/2's. I only have about 30 watts going to each w/a Kenwood H/U, Clarion 9 band EQ and a Kenwood 60x2 amp. and man they sound unbelievable. I put the 525's in the doors and the 5250's in the rear deck. Those separate tweeters in the 5250 bouncing off the rear glass are really loud and they are only powered about 1/3 of their rated RMS wattage. I cant wait to get my new amp. This will triple the power and hopefully triple my fun. I have always been an Infinity fan (that is what i finally ended up putting in the Ford, Infinity 5x7's) and still am but for my first purchase of a Polk product I am very impressed. A couple of things i would suggest is to put some baffles behind these to help bring out that great Polk sound. Also you really need to feed these the power if you have a good sub. My one ten really overrides them if the song has a lot of bass.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My purchase was for an install in a 2005 Ford F150 Club Cab. I purchased two sets, a pair for all 4 doors. The insstall for the front was ok. I had to make the factory tweeter hole location larger. 10 minutes worth of work and this was accomplished. In the rear I had to cut holes in the door panel to accomidate the tweeter. With the supplied mounting hardware the installation looks very cleen and flush mounted. <BR><BR>I had the original head unit for a few days and the speakers sounded ok. I could turn the head until up all the way and no distortion. When I installed my Alpine the speakers came alive. The highes are nice and the mids are present. The mids are a little hollow, but I think that has to do with the door design and the fact I had to use the adapter for the smaller speaker size from a factory speaker.<BR><BR>I would recommend these speakers to me friends. The seperation is good with the supplied crossover. The woofer can handle some bass and not sound like they are about to explode. The quality is top notch and the mounting options for the tweeter and supplied hardware is nice.<BR><BR>

I installed these speakers in an 04 Alero. This car came factory with 4x6 in the doors. After about 4 hours of mods, I got the door panels back on. I put the tweeters in the sail panel(barly fit). I mounted the x-overs in the glove box. Total install time, well all weekend, plus it was 35 degrees outside. In the end it all paid off. I am running a 75w x2 PPI. These speakers rock. The highs are not overly bright, but at high volumes you ears will ring. Nice mid-woffer responce and loud. They didn't break up once. I had it x-overed at 125Hz but I wasn't using the full potential of the speaker. I just use the x-over that came with the speakers. <BR>I AM AMAZED Polk came through AGAIN!

Ear piercing tweeters and crisp clear mids

Written by: sgtjojo from Augusta, GA on January 22, 2006

I installed 2 sets (front and rear) into my 1998 Chevy Cavalier. I installed the front tweets into the door panel, the rear tweets intalled into the paneling at just below ear level. I have them running off of a kenwood deck (22wRMS). Even without an amp, these speakers can make your ear drums hurt with their crisp clean highs. The installation was a bit advanced, not recomended for the weak at heart (drilling holes in paneling).

Very nice speakers for mid range. Dont produce alot of bass (they werent intended to). Others I talked to mentioned that these are very 'bright'. I didnt understand what they meant untill after i installed them. The tweets really rock, they are ear piercing. I have to turn down the treble below the 50% mark just so my ears dont right. I guess it depends on the type of music you listen to, but very nice overall.

Crossovers

Woofers

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.

Marine Certified Woofer: Polk db Series speakers are built to withstand exposure to moisture and UV rays, so they work well in boats and cars.

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.

Kapton Voice Coil Formers: The low-mass 2-Layer 1" Kapton Voice Coil formers are lightweight for high sound output. Kapton's high melting temperature ensures high power handling and excellent reliability.

Pole Plate Heat Sinks: The pole plate heat sinks promote better heat dissipation for superior power handling and reliability.

Tweeters

Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The 1" liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs.

Marine Certified Tweeters: Polk db Series speakers are built to withstand exposure to moisture and UV rays, so they work well in boats and cars.

Mounting: The supplied mounting cups allow you to surface- or flush-mount the tweeters. The tweeters swivel in the flush-mount housings, allowing you to adjust them for optimum imaging.
