Polk Audio db571

Give new life to your music

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 db571 speakers feature 5"x7"/6"x8" woofers made from a polymer/mica composite and durable rubber surrounds that won't fall apart under stress from heat, moisture, or time. Liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeters use powerful Neodymium magnets to deliver precise high-frequency reproduction, enveloping you in bright musical detail. The built-in two-way crossovers keep the high and low frequencies flowing to the proper drivers for seamless, efficient audio.

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

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

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.

5x7/6x8 Speaker: This speaker can be used in both 5x7 and 6x8 applications. The supplied mounting adapter ring allows the speaker to adapt to a 5x7 cutout when top mounted, and should be used to achieve a good seal when bottom mounted in both 5x7 and 6x8 applications.

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 Former: The low-mass, 2-layer Kapton Voice Coil former is lightweight for high sound output. Kapton's high melting temperature (725°F) ensures high power handling and longer reliability.

Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The 3/4" liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs. The tweeters use neodymium magnets.

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

Cons: Not very impressive bass response.

Nice Mids, So-so Lows

Written By Tino, Gulf Shores, AL on Monday, February 09, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered these speakers expecting a great sound. Polk did not disappoint. Though they say they fit my 98 ford ranger, and they did, the did so a little awkwardly. The highs sound crisp and clear, the mids come through great, but the lows.....ehhhh. I was hoping for some deep tones. They do produce some rich lows, however, if you are going for bass, you need a woofer. These speakers don't thump, they sound a little distorted when I try to push them, but when I tone it down a little the sound is amazing! A great choice if you want to replace a blown speaker or some factory insets. I really couldn't be happier with this product. The install was a breeze! Total install time took me about 10 minutes. Worth the money.

Pros: Crisp Sound, good highs and mid range

Cons: Bass response isn't all that great, awkward fit

Great Speakers!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed 4 speakers in my 2005 Ford F-150 FX4 Supercrew two weeks ago and were an instant step up from the stock speakers. The front two fit perfectly, and the rear two took a little more effort making a few adjustments to the frame to make them fit. Just installed a pioneer head unit with these speakers, and I have no regrets. The midranges are excellent; the low bass lets its presence be known and shakes the mirrors a bit. Overall great quality for a great price!

Fit perfect using the supplied wiring connectors. Sound much better than the 10 year old stock speakers. I also liked the fact these are marine grade. Work trucks do tend to get wet on the inside occasionally.

Cons: None I can see.

Written By David, Yuma, AZ on Sunday, October 05, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Polk Audio was on sale at the time I bought these and in addition to the numerous good reviews, I went ahead and purchased two sets (required for my 2003 Expedition). They definitely sound more clear than the stock speakers. The speakers unfortunately didn't fit perfectly, but by using some gardening shear scissors I was able to cut off the two loops at the tips of the speakers. I also had to drill two holes as only two of the side mounts matched up with the stock holes.

Pros: SQ way better than stock.

Cons: Doesn't fit perfectly.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are a very nice upgrade over stock paper speakers. There is SIGNIFIGANTLY more bass and the sound is much clearer overall, even with the stock head unit. These were put in a 1999 F250 work truck that has a very lame am/fm receiver, very basic. The sound quality has dramatically improved.

Pros: Vastly improved sound quality over stock speakers, Good price

Cons: none

Great sound for affordable price.

Written By ajw15, Byram, MS on Thursday, July 31, 2014

These speakers were a fast improvement from the stock speakers in my Mazda Tribute. Very easy to install and really helped up the high and mid range sound so my two subs would not over power the rest of the musical quality.

Installed these speakers in a 2007 Ford F150. The instructions and the wiring harness made everything easy. Only took half an hour. The sound is a vast improvment on the stock speakers.. Bass is very clear and loud . The gold color of the speakers looks great through the grille on the doors. I would reccomend these to anyone looking for better sound even with my stock receiver( which I plan to upgrade next.

Pros: great speaker, looks good, marine certified

Cons: none

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Have had other Polk Audio home products and thought these would meet higher expectations in my truck. While they are a good sounding speaker, they are not of the same quality as their home products. Really not much difference in sound between the factory ones I replaced.

Pros: Polk name.

Cons: Overall sound quality is not there.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are the first oval speakers I have purchased in over 10 years. Happy to say I am very impressed with the sound. My highs currently seem a bit full of crackle but that is more than likely due to my not finetuning my system yet. I love the look and construction of these speakers.

Pros: -Solid construction -Great value for price

Cons: -Can't rotate/direct tweeter

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Yes this is the ticket for real quilty some when you really want to hear everything that's going on in listening to your music. I've also noticed the fact that these speakers are built pretty durable as well as performance in their output of sound Quility. You can't go wrong using these speakers to get the job done with sound Quility.

Pros: The pros here is simply sound Quility and the durability of the overall construction of these speakers. Now did I mention the Quility!!!

Cons: The pros here is that I didn't take the opportunity of researching these speakers sooner. That to me is the con here.

Polk Delivers Again: Replacing FLM 5x7 Econoline Speakers

Written By ChazMan, Falls Church, VA on Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Polk db571 is an amazing upgrade to factory Ford 5x7. In my case, the foam surrounds had all but disappeared from age. Installation was virtualy painless.

Pros: The marine certification and rubber surrounds are an ideal choice for a work truck. But the improvement in fidelity, clarity and efficiency is the real payoff.

Cons: The plastic spacers provided to keep door trim off the surrounds are simply taped to the speaker frame, and have the potential to vibrate. I used a vinyl & rubber adhesive to glue the spacers firmly to each frame before installing.

Great Sound - 2012 Ford F150 Super Cab

Written By Dave, Williamstown MA on Monday, May 19, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Crutchfield adviser Cooper suggested these speakers, Polk Audio db571, to match up with my Pioneer AVIC 900BT. I took a long time to decide, having thought the Infinity Reference speakers would be better. I trusted Cooper and went with the Polk Audio speakers. I did however completely cover my doors with dynamat sound deadening material. This was suggested in another forum and was well worth the investment. The sound is crisp, full range and has a surprising level of punch. The equalizer of the Pioneer received allowed me to fine tune the speakers for my personal preferences. I initially installed one speakers and tested to see if it sounded better than the factory speaker and was disappointed. I did the same after installing the second speaker and was not impressed. After installing the third speaker I was thinking maybe I won't send them back. When finished with the complete install of all four speakers I was amazed at how good they sounded. After adjusting the equalizer I was completely sold on the fact that these were the best speakers in that size for the money I spent. The speakers were on sale buy one pair, get the second half price.

Pros: Crisp highs, full range sound and surprising level of punch to the base. The speakers were a breeze to install and the adapters worked perfectly. I would highly recommend the Dynamat material

Cons: May need hearing aids eventually! The speaker sound so good I'm playing them more often and louder than usual because they sound so good.

These speaker sound better than factory, but I would have liked a fuller sound. Also I think Crutchfield should have suggested the deadening pads for the doors, that would have made a difference. I learned about them afterward.

Pros: Ease of installation, decent sound, the wiring adaptation was perfect.

Cons: would have liked fuller sound.

I replaced my factory speakers in my 2003 F-150 supercrew (2 pair 5x7). I also have replaced the factory deck with a Pioneer DEH-X6600BT. I am running a Zapco 4x75 rms amp. These speakers sound exceptionally clean and crisp. Considering they are 5x7 coaxial speaker they are well worth the money. For what I am using them for they work great. Not sure how they handle lows since I am running a crossover. Didn't buy them for lows though. I would recommend them for a factory replacement any day.

the polk speakers I purchased work very well. I had upgraded the factory stereo with a pioneer from Crutchfield. they recommended the polk and other speakers as a upgrade from factory. what a difference. the factory would distort but not the polks. they where on sale which is even better. install was eazy. had to remove two tabs on each speaker to make them fit. a 5 min. job with a pair of end nippers not a problem at all. I am happy with everything I have purchased from Crutchfield. they sell good product and there install sheets are eazy to understand. I will keep buying.

Written By David, Ringgold, GA on Monday, December 02, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely a better sound than what I had in my 2001 F-250. When I pulled the panels, the speakers I pulled out were Eclipse, not stock, and these sounded WAY better than them. Powered through an aftermarket Pioneer head unit with no issues. Install was simple. After I had everything hooked up, it did leave me wanting more bass, but overall very pleased with the speakers. I had to cut and crimp the provided speaker wiring harness, but I assume that was because the previous owner of the truck had installed aftermarket speakers.

They are an upgrade over stock definitely but I have a head unit that puts out 14RMS and it blew out the midwoofers on 2 of the speakers.

These 5X7 speakers were extremely easy to install thanks to Crutchfield's excellent instruction sheet with photo illustrations coupled with the freed wiring harness adapter. I disconnected the factory tweeters in my Ford Fusion when I did the install and I'm so glad I did because the Polk's more than picked up the high end they were putting out. They sound is so smooth and detailed coupled with my Pioneer deck and Alpine power pack amp I know they will provide me with many years of listening enjoyment.

Pros: easy pug and play install, smooth detailed sound, excellent build quality

Cons: lacking in deep bass

Written By Pat, White Plains, NY on Sunday, February 10, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent clarity to these speakers. They have great punch and performance while playing everything from Classical to Heavy Metal. High frequencies are awesome, and very crisp. The mid levels are very specific, and the speakers don't muddy a track in any of the songs I threw at them - you can hear the music as if each bandmember had his own speaker within the speaker. The low frequency tones are clear and do not hum, but rather thump, bump and kick effectively. I have a $150 price range Kenwood Receiver powering these Speakers, and play off a USB.

Pros: Crisp well executed sound - resolution is EXCELLENT. Remnd me of themon Kardons in my 2013 ML.

Cons: Mounting Brackets required modification to fit application. No big deal...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Needed to buy speakers because 1 of the factory spaekers in my '06 F-150 was dying. Was only going to buy 1 pair of Alpines but it happened that Crutchfield had a buy one get one half off sale on the Polks so I got 2 pairs of them.. Was told by the customer service guy that there would be a big difference in sound even though I'm using the factory head unit. There wasn't. There was a very slight improvement in bottom end but the highs are harsh and strident and there is a large hole in the mid range. Either these are not very good or the factory speakers aren't that bad. I'm disappointed in their sound especially considering that I have a full set of large Polks for my home theater system and couldn't be happier with those. Maybe everything would improve with a new head unit or an amp.

Pros: Decent low end for this type of speaker

Cons: No mid range, harsh highs

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A must for an upgrade to factory speakers. Works best for me w/ a sub.Running this off a 5 channel amp w/Polk Audio separates & JL stealth box

Pros: Good upgrade from factory speakers, good power handling.

Cons: Not enough bass, need a separate sub. But sounds really good w/ the addition of a decent sub & fine tuning.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers immediately gave a noticible improvement over my factory speakers, which is what I was trying to accomplish since buying my 2010 truck.

Pros: Very easy installation, exact instructions for my truck, sound is what I was looking for.

Cons: After installation, needed to remove door panel again to turn one speaker around because a speaker wire was pulled out when the power window was rolled down.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just purchased a new ( to me ) truck. A 1999 F 150 super-cab. It had already installed an aftermarket receiver. It's a Alpine CDE-102, sounded really good. My Dad thought it was the best system he has herd in a auto before. I thought it was lacking just a bit, it was good I just thought it could be a little better. I thought the speakers were factory and thought aftermarkets would make it sound like I wanted. Didn't know exactly what I wanted but I knew a good place to look. (Crutchfield ) after surfing the site looking at all the what fits in my truck I still wasn't sure I was looking at punch from a e-mail ad , so I called the adviser hot line. the Adviser ask several questions my music and how I liked to listen and recommended these speakers. I received them in 2 days. I removed the door cards and found kenwood tri-axles. "Oh crap" not factory speakers!. Well I bought these might as well try them. Thanks Curtchfield adviser I could not be happier. these are clear and crisp. the highs and the mid-range is right there. can't wait to get my sub in now thanks again.

Pros: good crisp highs and mids. very clear

Best bang for your buck!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought a 06 F150 and couldn't stand the factory 6x8 speakers. These things sound great! It has perfect highs and decent mids. They rival anything I have heard for clarity. Perfect for what I wanted.

Pros: Highs! Clarity!

Cons: None

Good for what I have.

Great speakers for price and brand. Got buy one second 50% off. Boston makes clean sound without distortion. Not going to blow out windows but clean and crisp. Running off factory deck till satalite radio contract done. Going to power with aftermarket deck soon. These speakers need power to show full potential(like most aftermarket) but make a difference with crappy factory unclean power. Not as dynamic as infinity but alot less expensive.

Pros: Cleans up factory "buzz" great bargin.

Cons: Need clean power to show full potential

A clear upgrade from the Factory speakers in my 2001 F-250 Crew Cab. Perfect fit to the stock locations, and with the included wire harness adapter from crutchfield, I had 4 speakers installed in 45 min. Not a lot louder with the factory deck, but much clearer.

Pros: Great mids and highs with no distortion

Cons: I dont have enough wattage yet to reallyget all these speakers have to offer.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Vast improvement over stock. Not what I would consider audiophile quality, but considering I am using the stock factory head unit, and no amps, subs, ect. I am satisfied with the sound - for now. Install was fairly simple, thanks to the instructions Cruthfield supplied with the speakers. If Crutchfield can stand a little constructive criticism, one of the first steps in the install instructions is to remove the cover behind the inside door handle, to access the bolt, but all the sheet shows is the cover already removed. It does not give a clue HOW to remove it! I found you need to get behind this cover on the lower left corner, while holding the handle away from the door, as if you were opening it, with some sort of hook type device, and pull sharply. I have an old window moulding clip removal tool that worked perfect for this. once I figured this out, the rest was fairly simple. I would recommend connecting the power window switch, and make sure everything is out of the way from anything that moves BEFORE you reinstall the door panel. I used cable ties to secure the adapter cables to a factory harness inside the door. Interesting observation, I think I may have figured out why the stock speakers sound so bad. On the speaker magnet of the FORD speaker, it reads, plain as day "MADE IN CHINA". Sure am glad I bought American! These must have cost Ford all of 80 cents each!

Pros: Price, if you get the buy one - get one half price deal. Seem to be made from quality materials. Installation instructions included - for your vehicle.

Cons: Not a "perfect" fit. Had to use some creative screw angles to use the factory holes, or you can redrill two of them.

Great Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these speakers in my 2011 F-150 SCrew and couldn't be happier. Big improvement over sub standard stock speakers and very easy to install with directions and speaker harnesses. Very impressed with overall sound and bass from these little speakers, they should hold me over for a month or so before I pull the trigger on a powered sub.

Pros: Great sound Very affordable price Easy installation

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers were replacements for the ones in my 2002 Mercury Villager Van (pause for laughter). This is the second set of Polk Audio speakers that I have purchased from Crutchfield for two different vehicles (the Jeep were outstanding!!) . They were initially paired with a set of 4" Polk Audios but after pulling old rear speakers found that 2 sets of 5" by 7" in the vehicle were needed. Swap was a phone cal away and couldn't have been smoother! This was no fault of Crutchfield but with a vehicle built by Mercury and Nissan (more laughter) they changed size without notice. Interestingly, the front speakers used a front adopter from Ford and the rear from Nissan. Wire cutters please.. Also when installing two of the holes have to be drilled to make them speakers fit. Directions provided were helpful but not perfect (see above Ford Nissan comments). I added a Sound Ordinance amp sub combo. This sounds great with Kenwood system. Very happy with stereo but the Ford and Nissan combo made it somewhat difficult to install. See review for steering wheel controls for further details on that. The fact that the factory stereo, with cassette was not even listed by Crutchfield as existing-customer service again unbeatable...Sweet ride!

Pros: Great sound and weatherproof. Also on sale!

Cons: Buy some posi-taps and keep them around. Very handy when splicing. Also get some panel tools. Makes everything sooo much easier! Worth the cash because once you start buying from Crutchfield your stock systems will be on e-bay and you'll want their stuff in all your cars!!!

Money well spent

Put these in all four doors of my 2010 F 150 Super Crew, very easy installation and sound so much better than the OEM speakers. It was money well spent especially since it was buy one get one half price.

Pros: Good sound and easy to install.

Great OEM Replacement

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace some under performing stock speakers for my 2009 F-150. The sound is much better now.....crisper highs and even some thumping lows. Really should be ran through an amp, but improved the sound in my truck cab just fine. Once again, Crutchfield comes through with some great speakers at a great price......Thanks!

Pros: Better sound than stock, easy install with MasterSheet from Crutchfield

Cons: Did not send info to remove rear trim panel on regular cab. Found needed info online

Work well in my 02 F150
