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 db651s shallow-mount speakers feature 6-1/2" woofers made from a polymer/mica composite and durable rubber surrounds that stand up to heat and moisture. Liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeters use powerful Neodymium magnets to deliver precise high-frequency reproduction. With a 2" mounting depth, these speakers can fit into some tight places. The built-in two-way crossovers keep the high and low frequencies flowing to the proper drivers for seamless, efficient audio.
These speakers feature stainless steel mounting hardware and muscular ABS grilles that will add a stylish touch to your car's interior. And Polk certifies their db Series speakers for marine applications, so they're a great choice for your boat, motorcycle, or ATV.

I'am very pleased with the polk audio door speakers i recently purchased
polk audio door speakers, portland ,Or
I'am very pleased with the polk audio door speakers i recently purchased
cool speakers, great sound, easy install. One thing... the site did not say they are marine rated but in the box it says they are. Even better! Amazing clear sound and bulit proof!
Pros: Easy install, great sound and well made!
I picked these speakers because of relatively good reviews, previous satisfaction with Polk speakers purchased from Crutchfield, and they were on sale. I was initially disappointed with these speakers. They were very quiet and lacked bass when compared to the stock speakers they had replaced. I thought seriously about returning them. I know from what I have read some speakers benefit greatly from an amp. I have no plans to install an amp. I had heard that some speakers require time to "break-in" so I decided to wait awhile (and remain optimistic) before making a decision to send them back. I shifted the fader to the front to create a more even sound throughout my car. I am noticing the speakers are louder and now demonstrate a fullness when bass is present. These qualities were lacking initially.
Pros: Speakers sound great now.
Cons: Adapter wires provided by Crutchfield were not long enough. This was made known to me at the time of purchase.
I thought the Bose speakers were very nice, and actually they were until one finally blew. These installed extremely quickly once I figured out how to mount them. I was surprised by just how clear they were next to my old speakers. The mids and highs are great, and they have a nice punchy kick to them that compliments a small sub that came with the car. You won't get extremely low bass but you'll get amazing clarity and attack. Everything I have played through them sounds twice as clear as it did to my ears. At 69.99, $35 a speaker I feel like I got an amazing deal. As always Crutchfield is a great company when you need a little support.
Pros: Clarity, attack
These sound great. Happy with them
Pros: Small size for limited space
Cons: The small Connectors where a little flimsy and I had to be carful when hooking up the terminal.
They sound great, much better than stock door speakers that were beginning to fail, would highly recommend for 350Z owners.
Fast Shipping. Easy install with included brackets and harness. Sound is amazing. Polk Audio doesn't disappoint!
Nice sound for mids and highs, not so much with bass, but the speakers are not designed for bass, the inline capacitors signify that. I wouldn't buy them for stock replacement without added bass, but wound not shy away from them for mids and highs.
Pros: Mids and Highs
Sounds so much better then the stock ones, they fit right in the 5" hole plug and play.
Pros: Great quality and sounds good!
Great for front speakers, especially being driven by the amp
Very easy install with the free install kit. The sound is awesome compared to the speakers that were installed prior to my ownership. I am planning to replace the rear speakers with the Polks soon!
Pros: Easy install and very good price.
Replaced all 4 stock aging door speakers with these bad boys and they work great with my old Kenwood receiver. Sound quality is typical of Polk Audio speakers, well balanced mid/hi. Also installed the Sound Ordinance powered sub under the driver seat to take care of the lows and the result? Speakers work in beautiful harmony and they don't drown each other out. Sound is amazing for what I spent on this upgrade. Clear and crisp sound with just enough punch without annoying other cars at a traffic stop. If you're in the market for speakers, consider the Polk Audio db651s but manage your expectations appropriately as they will NOT satisfy your bass craving. That's what a powered sub woofer is for.
Pros: Solid build and design like any other Polk Audio products. Clear, crisp sound
Cons: Spacers Crutchfield sent did not fit in either of the door speaker holes. Had to trim each spacer to make them fit which made my install time a lot longer
Outstanding OEM replacement. And, if you just want to improve over stock GM door panel speakers (the worst in the auto industry) these are a dramatically noticeable improvement. The price is right too.
Pros: Super easy install. Solid bass stock GM speakers don't have. Makes the GM head-unit sound 100 times better.
Cons: Holes didn't match precisely on back doors. Not really an issue with the speakers - more an issue with the replacement mounts provided.
Recommended by a professional installer for my truck. Great speaker for the price.
Pros: Good sound for a slim speaker.
Great sound ...Great Value!!
Polk's db651 s are amazing. I bought my 2015 Jeep Wrangler and man does it ever have a terrible factory oem sound system. It does have a soft top and there was no way I would have been able to hear anything this summer. I was looking at the kicker's being from Ok, and Rockford Fosgate's since I'm a child of the 90's and thats what was cool then. Can't speak for the quality of either Kicker or Rockford Fosgate, but I can tell you I am glad I went with the Polks. I live chatted with Crutchfield and they suggested these. Super easy installation with the plug & play Metra 71-050 Speaker Wiring Adapters and Scosche SAC-656 Multipurpose Speaker Mounting Brackets. Both of which were free with my order. Added some Dynamat to the speaker pods and some polyfill. Hooked everything up and sounded better but still not great. Ended up installing an alpine KTP-445u to push the polks and now I'm happy.
Pros: Clean design and great quality. Crisp treble and good mids. Easy installation if I can do it anyone can. I suggest hooking an amp up to them to help get the watts up for a better sound.
Cons: None so far.
I just added them to my factory radio so I'm not really using them to there full potential. Never the less they sound great with my factory equipment.
Pros: easy to install
Cons: installation instructions are a little vague in some areas.
A good replacement speaker for the stock Honda Civic rear deck. Not too hard to install but does take some skill to remove the seat and trim panels in order to access the speaker location.
Pros: Good price. Quality sound.
Goos ahallow mount speakers but need an amp to power them
Pros: Shallow fit and great highs
Cons: Need an amp to get solid lows
This is a amazing front speakers that barely fits nicely into my truck. Installiation was super easy and took less than half an hour for both sides. Worked with the pioneer radio I got and no issues so far.
Pros: Fits, clear, good design, got antoher set that was smaller that works just as well for my rear seats, and easy installiation
Cons: Could be better but they are great for 60$ (little bass)
great sounding replacement speakers used with the stock radio. adequate bass with a balanced full spectrum sound. No need for tweaters with 4 of these installed.
Pros: balanced full spectrum sound
Cons: some users may want to add a sub. but its still a good thump for bass.
Awesome sound ! should have done this years ago ! Going to order some for my other vehicles !
They sound much better than the stock speakers in my 06 civic. There really is no bass so unless you have subs then these are not for bass but they sound great with my 12's. Highly recommend for highs and mids.
Pros: Vocals, mids
Cons: No bass
Thru recommended by your support staff, it provided a much clear enhanced sound. Very satisfied.
Easy to install with the directions provided
Great product made better by Crutchfield. Very easy to install and sound great!
Very easy install. They blow the factory speakers out of the water!
These were replacement speakers from the factory set of 4. Since it is a economy car, I also purchased baffles to get the best sound possible. I would say I am moderately satisfied. Better then the factory, not as great as expected given the other reviews. Crutchfield was amazing. Shipping, instructions and such were spot on. Perhaps I'll top grade again in the future, but for now - cie la vie. Caveat Emptor.
Pros: Highs & Mid are crisp and sound great.
Cons: The bass is sub par. At any increased setting you will get distortion at least for any type of dance, techno, or BPM music.
Bang for the buck, these are a great set of speakers. I would highly recommend them to anyone who likes clean and clear audio at a relatively inexpensive price. I installed four of these Polk db651s speakers with the Sony MEX-XB100BT head unit in my 2006 Chevy Trailblazer. This Sony head unit has a bass boost feature which essentially pushes 100 watts to each speaker (when bass boost is OFF the speakers get about 40 watts per speaker and it is a noticeable difference). I also have a pair of 12 inch subs with an amp, so between these four polk speakers and the subs I get a loud and full range of sound from the music I listen to (which is a wide variety of music - pop, rap, country, jazz, classical, etc. If you are considering 3 way or the component speakers like I did, my decision to go with these came down to the fact that these 2 way speakers had reviews that claimed great sound quality and were going to be a better value in the long run. So far those reviews have been spot on. My guess on any of the negative reviews that have been posted for this product is that those people did not provide enough wattage to these speakers. Because of the Sony head unit I have, I've heard them at both 40 and 100 watts. I can easily say you will want at least 100 watts going to each speaker. Lastly, Clarence from Crutchfield was great when I called in to make sure I wasn't missing anything and he had the same opinion on this product as many of the positive reviewers on this product
Pros: Extremely clear/crisp highs due to the hi/low filters attached to the speakers. Mid range is decent for 6.5 inch speakers when given enough watts (recommend minimum 100 watts per speaker). As many reviewers stated this is not a sub woofer so don't expect thumping. Speakers fit as Crutchfield stated they would (a car audio business did the install, said it went without a hitch). Overall the speakers are excellent value for the price but definitely recommend 100 watts per speaker at a minimum.
Cons: Two things I will comment on. 1) For good quality and relative loudness these speaker definitely require more watts than 15 to 55 watts per speaker that your typical head unit provides. 2) Some reviewers have stated that the high end frequencies are too high for them. Depending on your hearing, I could see how some people claimed this but I personally don't fall under this category and am very pleased with these speakers so far (full disclosure I have only had them for a week and a half now).
Much better than the OEM speakers.
Pros: Easy installation.
Great for stock radio.just use 4 wire ties instead of mounting bracket took about 30 seconds
I installed our old sub woofer (from our 2007 Elantra) into our 2014 Accent to see if the added bass would breathe new life into the system. I still wasn't satisfied, so tried these Polk speakers - what a difference! The sound is much clearer and dynamic - a very noticeable improvement. Installing the speakers took longer than anticipated, as I wanted to make sure the job was done correctly. The Crutchfield team makes it easy with their instruction sheet that is very detailed and model specific. You won't be disappointed with these speakers - much improved over factory - makes driving the car fun!
Pros: Very clear and detailed sound, well built and fits perfectly.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Shipped and arrived really quick, packaged well, install took no more than 30 mins for both sides. Easy peasy plug n play. Much better sound over stock, but waiting on an amp to really bring out the speakers. Great for the price!
Pros: Inexpensive Great sound Perfect fit
Cons: Not so much bass, but waiting on an amp so that could change easily.
I bought these to replace my stock Bose speakers and am glad I did. The highs are much more defined and clear and the bass response is superior. I've used Polk Audio in almost every application you can think of and am never disappointed. I'm not so much of an audiophile that I need to spend the big money on Focal, but not so naive to think I would be happy with the cheapest option out there. Polk Audio always seems to be exactly where I need to be for price and superior quality.
Pros: Price, sound quality.
Theses speakers are slim and fit as expected. I am driving th she speakers with a Pioneer DEH-8700h and I was some what disappointed. The power out from the head unit did not have enough power out to drive these speakers unless the volume was turned up past 3/4. Since the initial install I have updated my system and added a Blaupunkt 55 RMS amp and a Sound Ordinance powered sub. Now we're talking the db651s have the power to them to drive the speakers so the bass is there and sounds great
Pros: Price Fit Quality Sound presence
Cons: Need some power to drive them
Great quality, definitely need a subwoofer with Polk speakers though. They have amazing highs however the lows are not the greatest.
Pros: Excellent highs
Cons: Need a subwoofer for the lows these are not good speakers if your looking to get any type of bass
The speakers sound great and for a great price
Pros: Easy fit and connection. Took 15 minutes per door!
full sound, that carries up from doors
Pros: easy installation nice sound
Great sounding speakers at a decent price. Had to do some minor modifications to mount them, but wasn't bad at all
Pros: Great sound Fairly easy install Comes with all the parts you need
I replaced the factory speakers with these. It was a huge improvement! Music is so much cleaner. I actually hear things that previously were not produced with the factory speakers. These produce great highs and mid range. I am using the factory radio so they may produce more bass if I replaced the head unit and add an amp. I also replaced the factory 8" sub at the same time but didn't add an amp for it either.
Pros: The speakers are great! With the adapters provided by Crutchfield the front speakers went right in. Using the rear speaker adapters I had to do a little customization to make this work.
Cons: None I can think of.
Good upgrade to factory speakers. Good mids and highs compared to the basic factory system in the front doors of my 2015 ram with 8.4N radio. Speaker adapters and wiring plugs made install simple.
Pros: Easy install and good upgrade to factory sound
Cons: None really
These are amazing speakers that fit in my 07 Charger with brackets Crutchfield included. They sound great! Even with a factory radio, highs, mids, and bass drastically improved. I can't wait to amp them!
Pros: Highs are the best part of this speaker. The mids and mid bass are above average and sound great!
Cons: Bass is a tad lacking, but that should be expected in a shallow speaker.
For the price the sound is amazing. My Crv is sounding sweet.....can't wait until I upgrade factory head unit.
Pros: Priced great, sound is wonderful....
Cons: Cons?? Very simple...... NONE!!.
These are great speakers for my rear door speakers in my 2002 Silverado HD2500 Crew Cab. I've been a fan of Polk Audio for almost 30 years. These didn't disappoint. Crutchfield also went above and beyond. While installing the first set of speakers I ran my screw gun through the cone of the speaker. When I went to purchase a 2nd set I noticed that it said it fit my truck but I needed a bracket. The first set didn't come with a bracket. I asked the CS rep on chat about it and he arranged for the replacement of my damaged speakers and sent the right bracket - NO CHARGE. They even cross shipped. I was ready to buy a new pair, told them it was my fault, but they replaced them anyway - WOW!
Pros: Sound WAY better than the stock speakers and CS was over the top
Excellent upgrade on my factory speakers. Easy install.
Pros: Good sound
Put these in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler and it was a perfect fit!
Very easy to install
Pros: Great sound
Cons: Needed to drill one hole
I bought these speakers to replace the speakers in my 2002 GMC Yukon and they worked perfectly. The front door install was incredibly easy and took about a half hour after I had already gathered the tools required. The back door speakers fit, however, they were much more difficult to install because the bracket included did not fit the door very well. I ended up having to screw the bracket into the door and then screwing the speakers to those with separate screws that were not intended for it.
Pros: Sounds good. Very easy install.
Cons: The back doors required more thought and effort than anticipated.
Excellent factory replacement. Clear highs and punchy lows. Glad they have built in crossover caps to filter unwanted frequency.
Pros: Excellent factory replacement sound.
Cons: None so far.
I installed one in rear door of a 2008 Titan. I compared the sound from one side with the Polk to the stock speaker. The volume and bass of stock speaker was was much louder with good bass. I removed Polk speaker and sent them back.
Pros: Good quality speaker tweeter was great. Power amp is needed.
Cons: Very low audio compared to stock. Not enough bass.
Great product! The sound is crystal clear
I have a 2006 Honda Civic. I bought the car a couple years ago with the front speakers already blown. Recently, the back right speaker blew out, and left me with no choice but to look into speakers. I don't know anything about cars, but I went online, talked to Ringo, and he attached a list of speakers that would fit my car and everything I needed to install. He recommended these speakers, and the results are fantastic. Super easy to install. Again, I don't know much about cars or stereos, but it was very easy. And the sound quality is excellent. I have no complaints at all. Now, my opinion might not be worth much to you, since I'd be driving around with one back speaker for some time, and had heard music in the front speakers for the first time when I installed these. But I do find the quality to be excellent. Love the product, love the easy to install
Pros: Easy install, great sound
Absolutely outstanding sound quality! I can now pick out every nuance of sound! Outstanding highs and mids with a decent midrange punch. Don't buy these if you want to rock a lot of bass out of them though ( which you should never do with 6 1/2s), that is not what their forte is. Just make sure you've got or are planning to get a sub and I promise these will not disappoint! Excellent quality for the money!
Pros: Excellent highs and mids, build quality and sound clarity
Cons: None really, except if you were wanting to crank the bass up on these. But don't do that. Not what these are built for.
I really liked these speakers. The old speakers that I had in the pickup were pretty shot when I purchased the pickup years ago and never went around to purchase new ones. They were easy to install once I figured out a few things and they sound so much better. Not as much bass as I would like but a fantastic addition at a great price!
Went in with minimum effort. Blow`s factory speakers away with clarity.
Pros: Went in easier than stated. Fit with very minor alterations of door mount in my 02 Honda Accord.
Great speakers, great product. I needed more screws and tabs to move the speakers tighter and they shipped them out immediately at no charge. Great company to do business with!
Pros: Great speakers, great company
I delivery of the product was very fast. The master sheet is Ok for the instructions. Back to review: PoldDB651s: Sound quality is quite better as compared to the stock speakers. But, for this to understand you don have to be an audiophile instead just by the look of the dbs you can make that out. The speakers are good for high and better for Mids but worst for Low(Bass). If you are planning to change these just for the sake of getting the stock ones out then it is OK but if the purpose is for enhanced listening experience then have some bucks extra for upcoming changes. I connected these to the HU already available so I am not sure how would they sound with the amplifier but from what I assume they wont better in the low section ever. Definitely they would go up more on Mid's and High's on high volume but who wants that on high vol? Generally speaking the Low are the ones that are expected to thumping with balanced sound. To do these do as I did: Order a subwoofer immediately before you get more frustrated with the low bass sound. I would suggest ordering a Powered subwoofer which can stay in the cabin allowing you to balance the sound properly. Specially for Civic 2006 Coupe: Firstly the rear speakers are pain in the butt. The space is extremely less. To pry the top cover in rear dont forget push the panel above reason being the clips that hold it. To get them out dont pull towards you instead apply force vertically. Finally I guess the overall quality & sound is go
Pros: Crisp High, Good Mid, balanced sound. Better built quality as compared to stock ones.
Cons: Poor performance on bass. Distortion on high vol which I assume can be removed by connecting an amp and external sub ofcourse.
Great product and performance. My installer loves the brand!
Pros: Performance Price
So far these speakers sound great.
After replacing stock radio with Pioneer receiver, thought adding 4 new speakers to my 1999 Jeep Cherokee would give me all the power and sound I needed. But when I turned up the volume to about 30, the radio powered off like it was over-loading. Checked all the wiring then called Crutchfield and was told that I probably needed a subwoofer--that my system was under-powered. They recommended a Sound Ordinance powered subwoofer (they liked it and was popular), stating that it would meet my requirement of fitting under my passenger seat, but they were wrong. I did my own measurements and bought the Kenwood KSC-SW11 at eBay for much lower price. Fits perfectly, and there are good metal grounding locations there and holes for vents. Installation was easy, and sound was good, but receiver still powered off when I turned the volume up. Noticed it was worse on hot days, and fan/AC controls got hot to the touch. Googled this and found that my blower fan was failing and causing some high heat on the dash temp controls. Bought a new fan, and BOOM, no more radio cutting out at very high volume! Love Crutchfield, but you guys were wrong about everything, including stating that 6 1/2 speakers wouldn't fit the rear ceiling. I will say that bass was definitely lacking before adding the subwoofer. I don't listen to anything boomy, like Rap so don't need to rattle the windows, but the Kenwood will definitely vibrate all the seats and doors! Don't even want a newer SUV anymore!
Pros: Clear, clean highs and mids for voice and acoustic instruments. Very easy install that "even a girl can do". Ha.
Cons: Thin bass and mids.
Excellent speakers bought four!
Pros: Superb sound!
Cons: Mounting kits for my car took extra mods to fit, after installed though I was very happy.
Installed these in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the factory Alpine system. This upgraded system stinks! I knew I needed some aftermarket speakers. Crutchfield made the install super easy after it came within 36 hours of the order (we are pretty close to their location). Anyway, I added some polly fill to the empty sound bar and WOW, these make a heck of a improvement even still with the factory head unit and none of the other speakers touched, I am pretty satisfied with these, and will probably order another set for the dash. Props to Crutchfield for including everything I needed.
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, easy to install, marine rated, clear highs and full lows.
Cons: Mid range is just okay
Great improvement in sound in my 2012 Subaru Outback! Well worth doing. Crutchfield instructions were clear and accurate. Holding the new and old speakers in my hands, what a difference. No wonder the new ones sound so much better.
Pros: Installation went fine, sound is terrific!
Cons: Nothing really.Maybe it could have been mentioned that the speaker adapter rings go with the front speakers, no need for them on the rear. But that does become self evident once you get into it.
Opted to go the 6.5" route after finding out that the Kicker 6x9's I ordered for my 2008 Ram didn't quite fit (the ever elusive fourth hole!). The supplied adapter plate made it a an exact and airtight fit with foam gasket material. Wasn't expecting this much improvement in every catagory! Super tight midbass punch with frightening clarity. Even when using with the factory head unit the difference is amazing. I was worried about a loss of bass but after break-in that all diminished. My bass, midrange and treble settings are all set to flat now. Worth every penny.
Pros: Build construction and clarity
Cons: Supplied hardware although stainless steel was a little cheesy. Wound up using the hardware supplied with the adapter plate to mount the speakers.
They are a good price and sound really good. The installation was difficult. The door panel came off as the instructions showed but the speaker was too large for the adapter plate. The original screw holes were covered by the speaker and needed a lot of grinding to make the access and a relief for the screw heads. A 5.25 inch speaker would have been installed with no modification. I called customer support and they explained that "they" should have explained that when I bought them. The screws supplied could not reach the adapter plate. I was surprised by the number of issues from a large supplier.
Pros: great sound and price.
Cons: Installation could have been a lot easier. Supplied adapter plate screws were too short to reach the sheet metal nuts.
Nice price for excellent speakers, I'm using them in the back seats of my toyota tundra
Pros: great sound for the price
Cons: None at this time
Pros: they fit and easy to install
Cons: they have to warm up I live in Minnesota and if temp is below zero they dont vibrate till truck warms up
I purchased these speakers as direct replacements for my wife's car, Subaru Baja sport. They are shockingly good. The sensitivity allows the stock head to preform very well. One could lose hearing in this car now, with stock speakers you had to run level 8 to hear them level 4 starts to become uncomfortable now. They are very clean sounding good mid-range and highs. The lows are much better than expected. The separation of sound is very good for this type of speaker. I really cannot say enough about them. Just a few years ago you would have to spend $500 to $800 for this kind of sound. Add the marine rating and you have real winners!
Pros: Ease of fit. Great highs and mid good lows for this type of speaker.
These are the perfect upgrades to any factory speakers. Polk audio makes some of the best and quality speakers systems period. Goes well with my redone sound system and I highly recommend.
Pros: Great sound quality durable design Comes with a foam sound deadner for aftermarket adapter to eliminate rattle
Excellent speakers !
Pros: Great price
Replaced front door speakers with these Polk db651s. I've been a Polk customer and owner since 1983. There's a reason for that. Polk makes a good product. When I buy something for a fair price and it does what I expect it to do, I'm happy. These Polks were fairly priced and produce a good sound. I'm happy with them.
Pros: Quality speakers which produce a good sound for a fair price
Cons: Had to cut the plastic pins in the door mount to get speakers to fit. This does not affect the security of the speakers' mounting. The Metra 72-9300 wiring harness is not an exact match to the car's harness plug. It mates, but the plastic tab on the car's plug has nothing on the Metra plug into which it can lock. Friction keeps the plugs mated, but I taped around them with electrical tape just to be sure. Also, harness is too short if car plug kept connected to door. Not a problem, though.
3rd set I've purchased wouldn't even think of another brand. Awesome sound and price you won't be disappointed!
Good sounding speaker replaced factory in 2000 Silverado.
Pros: Glad it came with brackets and wiring so it just plugged right in.
Got 2 pairs. For front and rear doors of my 06 Baja. Install wasn't too bad. I recycled some of the bezel from the factory speakers to assist in the install; generally worked out well.
Pros: Sound Great! Price pretty good too.
Cons: can't think of any.
These are probably some of the best improvements in sound for the least price. Relatively simple to install please remember that one of the mounting brackets inside the sound bar of the jeep wranglers is longer than the others make note of this as installation is easier when you remember which one of these to orient to.
Pros: Great price good improvement in sound certainly much better than the bass speakers
Cons: installation instructions were somewhat generic please pay attention to the one mounting bracket that is longer than the others within the sound bar the adapter cables were easy to use and a huge asset
These Polk Audio speakers sound very good, a serious upgrade over stock speakers. Some say the bass is not very good and others say it's great; which is correct. They both are. A 6.5" speaker physically can't produce bone rattling base, I don't care who makes it. These speakers produce a tight well defined mid-base, which is what they are designed to do. I plan to add a sub-woofer later. However, these Polk Audios do a good job of producing clean, well defined audio. The highs are crisp without being harsh, the mid and mid-bass are very good.
Pros: Good accurate sound.
Excellent preforming speaker. Sounds great in my 04 Silverado.
Pros: DB651 Polks sound beautifully rich and clean. Just what I wanted.
These speakers were given to me as a Christmas gift by my daughter. I am a frequent visitor and buyer of Crutchfield products and would like to give you guys and gals kudos. This was an excellent fit and the brackets and wire harness made the install smooth. The only problem I had was I didn't receive the MasterSheet. Since I had never done this before,there was a slight learning curve. My buddy and I figured it and in the end all is well. Speakers sound great and I am happy. Well done Crutchfield. One favor, can u send me the MasterSheet just so I can have a copy. Thank You again.
Pros: Excellent fit, right hardware, great sound
Cons: noneCrutchfield response on December 30, 2015 We're sorry to hear that you had some difficulty with the installation. We send out the vehicle-specific installation instructions ahead of the order (as an attachment to your shipping confirmation email) so that you can familiarize yourself with the installation requirements before receiving your order. We emailed another copy of the Mastersheet to you, and if you ever run into any problems during the installation, don't hesitate to call our Tech Support team. They're standing by, seven days a week, and their help is free, as a benefit to our customers.
Great sound for the price. Crutchfield was awesome with selection advice.
Instructions and using installation kit were perfect. Ironically the speakers that came out were cheap 6x9 with a special frame. The kit provided with the spears matched to the car. Very simple install. Speakers sound great to partcularly driven by factory unit.
Pros: Clear sounding speakers, wiring harness adapter worked well, and kit fit great. Install time for both doors about 60-90 minutes
Factory speakers were blown and these are a nice upgrade for the price
Pros: Clear highs
Cons: Bass was not as expected. Having rear speakers with good bass response is a must to balance the sound throughout the car.
Excellent choice to upgrade the speakers in my daughters Ford Fiesa.
Pros: Sound Quality & Sale Price - Awesome help from Crutchfield to select and provide easy install instructions
I love these speakers. Great sound improvement over the factory speakers that came with my car. I want to drive more so I can listen to music in my car.
Pros: Clear highs and mids
Cons: Weak on the bass side, but then again that's what a woofer is for...
Got them for a 92 Honda Accord. Great sound without breaking the bank
Pros: Great Sound
Sounds great. Big Difference compared to stock speakers. 1 speaker came "broke" but called Crutchfield and they took care of me.
nice speakers, much better than stock
I installed these in the back doors of my truck with some reservation because they were "shallow mount". I was pleasantly surprised at the richness and clarity. Polk Audio comes thru again for me.
I had my driver side door speaker go out and bought these to replace both front door speakers. My Liberty has the OEM Infinity stereo, I have always liked the way it sounded, good deep base. With the install of these, no more base. I bought them for the 50hz low rating vs. others at 70hz and above. If you have a sub, there is probably not a problem, they sound good and clean, the base they have is tight and you can turn them up without any signs of sloppy sound, they stay clean. Just not the deep base I was hoping to keep. Buy the MB-Quart ZK1-116 (20-20,000hz) rating.
Pros: Good clean sound even at elevated volumes.
Cons: No base below ~80hz
Great replacement for my 2006 Monte Carlo factory speakers.
Pros: Crisp clear sound
Good quality sound decent base good mid and treble
Pros: Good sound good price
These speakers fit great and sound terrific!
Sound Great! Much better than stock speakers
Pros: Sound and fit great
Installed into a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: The speakers are good, just be sure to make sure the little capacitors that are on the back side of the speakers are not loose, they come loose pretty easy. So what I did was used a little silicone caulk to hold them in place, I would suggest doing this even if they are not loose. Also the mounting brackets Crutchfield sends for free are terrible. They work ok for the front but not for the rear sound bar. The best thing to use for the rear sound bar is the metal bracket that the factory speaker is actually made of. What you do is cut the biggest part of the metal ring of the speaker away from the speaker (this destroys the factory speaker but you end up with a solid metal ring you can screw the new speaker to. This makes for a solid mount.
Pros: Speaker sounds good!
Cons: Mounting brackets from Crutchfield are flimsy and crack easily.
Fit and sound great, thank you to the sales advisor at CrutchField.
Pros: Fit perfectly in my 2015 Jeep Wrangler
Cons: None so far...
Bought these to install in a 2000 Tacoma access cab after listening to the DB651 speakers at best buy. I had to buy slim speakers due to the limited space so options were very limited. I knew i would lose some bass compared to the not-slim version of the speaker, but didnt realize it would be such a difference. Overall though i am satisfied with the purchase. The clarity is great on these, just lacking some bump in the low range.
Pros: great clarity for mids and highs slim fit
Cons: lack of bass
Sound clear! After some modification to factory "fill plate" in place of tweeters these fit perfectly in my Nitro. Plenty of excess wire and installation options. I think if I had to do it over again I would chose a different tweeter given my vehicle, by no means is it the tweeter itself. I just believe these are better suited for a vehicle with tweeters being placed in a deeper dash location compared to the lack of depth I have in given the Jeep windshield so close to the driver, or shallow dashboard. I was able to adjust to sound decent with Polk db641s.
Pros: Sound clear and easy install
Really happy with the sound from these speakers. They seem well built to endure the abuse a car speaker will have to encounter. It's amazing the sound quality you can get for your dollar these days. I feel these speakers were a very good value for the money I spent. I put these speaker in my doors before upgrading my rear deck speakers, and the sound improvement was remarkable.
You have everything you will need; well built speakers guaranteed to fit your vehicle, instructions (with pictures) that are easy to understand and connectors that fit so you don't have to cut or change your vehicle's wiring. The sound from such small speakers is incredible. The Polk Audio db651s front speakers separate instruments and vocals so everything is so crisp.
Pros: Quality speakers that put OEMs to shame; the sound is amazing. Easy to install and everything fits. You can also call and talk to an actual human being.
I replaced 4 factory speakers in my 2013 Honda Accord, which were OK, just not very good. I was looking for a little clearer highs, and some added depth. I had no illusions that I would be creating a "thumping" system - for that I will need a powered Subwoofer. These coaxial Polks gave me exactly what I expected in terms of a quality speaker system - a nicely rounded out sound experience. Since my son was helping me install these speakers, it wasn't hard at all :-)
Pros: Nice, crisp sound. Great price.
Cons: The included installation instructions fall a bit short. I reccomend using You Tube to research your install.
I don't know if I had bad luck with my speakers, but they were really lacking in depth. Didn't sound too great in my 2013 Silverado.
Pros: Easy to install. Relatively inexpensive factory speaker replacements.
Cons: Really lacking in presence.
Easy to install, all accessories fit like a glove. Speakers produce great sound quality.
They fit my Grand Caravan.The sound range is good and they are loud.
Pros: Fits,good sound range and loud.
The speakers sound clean and clear. The efficiency is much better than the factory speakers that were replaced. My install was an 07 Trailblazer. The website said fits with adapter. That was an understatement. When I did a test fit of the adapter and speaker into the housing on the car door, I knew there would be cutting. I called Crutchfield to confirm my thoughts and the tech service said, yes, it looks like a tight fit. I proceeded with lots of cutting and some drilling until I got the speakers installed. I did not expect to spend several hours doing the install, as the website stated fits with adapter. I have had much easier installs on other cars I have owned.
Pros: Speakers sound great and are very efficient.
Cons: Fit with my vehicle was difficult.
These were perfect to replace the stock speakers in the doors. 2 sets of these, one for the front doors and one for the rear allowed a simple install with no modifications required. I coupled it with the Kenwood Excelon DPX791BH and even with the stock amps and the typical road noise issues with the Element, these are amazing and all I need. The installation has my son saying, "Wow, these speakers sound really good, Dad." - I think he is angling for the car in a year or two....
Pros: Perfect fit. Largest speakers I could find for my Honda Element without cutting into anything.
Purchased these speakers for my Toyota Tundra 2002. Matched them to a Clarion Cx 501. I was frankly disappointed about the difference or lack thereof from my 20 watt original speakers by Toyota. I'm not sure why that is since I was advised to purchase exactly these speakers with the particular Clarion head unit I already had installed. The improvement with the head unit from the previous head unit was significant with the factory speakers. I was simply hoping for an even better improvement using the Polk speakers. I actually replaced all four. I wish I could give these speakers a better rating.
Theses speakers made the system
Pros: Easy install
I installed 4 of these in a Corolla 4 years ago and they are still going strong. Those are a ken wood head unit and a 4x40 ken wood amp. They are paired with a Bazooka tube and two 3 1/2" Polk tweeters. The speakers are so good I just purchased 4 more for my Tacoma.
Pros: They are great when paired with some tweeters and a Bazooka tube. They sound very crisp,and clear. You hear so much more than the factory speakers. As usual Crutchfield answered all my questions and supplied all the instructions and hardware. I have been buying from them since the late 70's and see no reason to shop anywhere else.
I replaced the factory 6x9's in my Chrysler 200 and they sound great. Installation was a breeze with the adaptor plates that came with the Polk speakers. They add another level of sound you just can get with the factory speakers. Support was great in recommending the Polk DB651S to match an older Polk component set of speakers that I installed in the front door panels.
Pros: Crisp highs and solid mid-bass.
I have put this speaker or an earlier version in 4 cars and they have never failed me. In fact, I had put some other name brand 5.25's in the doors of my last install (my daughter's care - to save her a little money) and they were really lacking. Two months later I replaced them with these Polk's because I knew they were great - the difference was amazing and the system sounds fantastic now - like originally intended.
Pros: Nice full range and can take good amount of power/volume. Great Value - excellent performance for a relatively inexpensive speaker..
Great speaker that not only sounds nice but looks nice. Fit in 12 Kia Forte modified factory grills.
These speakers are far superior to the stock speakers in my truck. They sound great and for the price, cant be beat.
Pros: easy install, great sound quality for the money. DEFINITELY a significant step up from stock speakers
Cons: When one of those songs with a lot of bass comes on the sound becomes distorted and "tinny" at high volumes. Not a big deal since most songs don't fall into this category. ***I am not running an amp so your experience might be different if you are/will
Great sound makes my music come alive
Pros: Sound quality
Great speaker for the right price .
Pros: easy installation with free hardware kit .
Phenomenal upgrade from "factory"
Pros: Sound great, no buzz.
My 2001 Chevy Tahoe had speakers which were rusty and rotting so I replaced them with the Polk Audio DXi-651s, and upgraded the stock stereo to the Kenwood KDX-X799. Great combination, sounds great and even the stock sub woofer sounds much better. I will be upgrading that soon. As usual Crutchfield service is the best. I've been a Crutchfield customer since 1990.
Pros: Great sound, quality and price.
With factory radio in 2002 subaru outback these sound very good. Although, too much volume and they distort so I will get a new headunit in the next few months. It is paired with a factory subaru subwoofer which does not work with after market headunit. So Crutchfield will be getting more of my money :)
Cons: Really need a new or better headunit to enjoy.
Speakers sound great. The front door mounting adapters were a perfect fit on my 2004 Tahoe. The rear brackets took a little time staring at them and figuring out what tabs to use and what to remove. The instructions weren't very good for those. But still didn't take long to hook up. The wire adapters were perfect.
Pros: Sound great with stock stereo and even better with aftermarket.
Cons: Rear door mounting adapter instructions not very helpful
What a difference! Highly recommend.
Totally revamped the sound of the system. Highly recommend
Bought a pair of these for my Mercury Tracer. I installed them in the front doors without a hitch thanks to Crutchfield's handy "how to" video. They sound a lot better than the factory speakers and my car had the "premium sound package" from the factory.
Pros: Easy to install, sound great, came with all of the wiring and hardware to do it.
Cons: None so far.
Great value. Sounds really nice in my Yukon XL. Will not blow your ears out, but perfect for me.
Great upgrade from stock speakers. very clear bass and highs.
Pros: Great power from a slim fit speaker
Cons: in a car with only two speakers it can still be a bit overpowered by a modern head unit and end up distorting.
The Polk Audio db651s speakers sound great, look like they are built to last, and were easy to install in my 2003 Chevy Silverado. The door-ajar chime also now works! The enclosed door panel removal instructions were helpful, and there are also several "You Tube" videos available that provide similar information in a more visual format. The GM compatible wiring harnesses proved to be very helpful, since no cutting, splicing or soldering was required. The Metra 82-3002 mounting brackets were also very helpful, since no drilling of the door panels was required. However, the Metra instructions only referenced 1995-1999 Chevrolet and GMC pick-up trucks, which caused me to confirm with Crutchfield that I received the correct speaker mounting brackets. Also, the instructions for the speaker mounting brackets have a diagram on the front page which shows two speaker mounting brackets which mirror each other (i.e. a left and a right). However, my sealed package from Metra included two speaker brackets which were exactly the same (i.e. two lefts, or two rights). If the two speaker mounting brackets had been mirror-image, no alterations would have been required. For this installation, to flush mount the speaker mounting bracket on the driver-side door, the removal of one large plastic tab from the right side of one bracket was required. The safest way, to avoid breaking the bracket, was to carefully cut off the plastic tab with a coping saw.
Pros: The Polk Audio db651s speakers sound great, look like they are built to last, and were easy to install in my 2003 Chevy Silverado.
Cons: The Metra 82-3002 speaker mounting brackets should include two brackets that mirror each other (i.e. one designed for the driver-side door, and one designed for the passenger-side door).
I am finally hearing all of the instruments in the music. Very good speakers
Pros: Easy install with the speaker mounting bracket.
Cons: Had to solder the connections on to the speakers but wasn't a big deal.
These two way speakers provide great sound that fits in tight locations (under Honda factory rear deck grilles in my case) for a reasonable price. The sound is very transparent and remains flattering to your music across the spectrum.
Pros: Value, quality, performance
Cons: None for me
These are one of the best speaker in this price range. These are an excellent upgrade from your factory speakers. A good bang for your buck
Pros: Good construction. Will take a lot of abuse. Great high end and mid range sounds.
Cons: No bass.
Great price and speaker. Installed in my Honda CRZ with the supplied adapters. Sounds much more bright, exactly what is needed up front.
Pros: Price & slim design
Fair price for a quality product. Have a fair thump to them to onoy be 6.5". Water resistance is a plus in the jeep. And they still sound good over the wind noise.
Pros: Good sound in mids and bass.
Cons: Muddy bass when its really cranked up
very good sound,mounted up well with brackets
Pros: good sound,well made much better than factory speakers
Cons: rear mounting brakets little harder to figure out.
Worth every penny. Nice warm sound. Replaced the stock speakers in my Wrangler
Pros: Warm sound. EASY install with the wire that were provided. Great quality at a great price
Cons: None that I can think of
Easy installation and they sound great.
Amazing speakers; installed in my 2014 jeep soundbar; removed the alpine "premium" speakers noticed an immediate improvement in sound and clarity. will install the alpine ktp-445a amp as soon as it becomes available via crutchfield.
Pros: clear sound, crisp but not too 'bright' sound. replaced the 'premium' alpine speakers in my 2014 jeep.
Bought 2 pair for a Sportage. These are very smooth speakers. I am using the baffle, and the bass is tight. It isn't real deep, down to 60Hz or so, but tight. My head unit has a 10 band PEQ, and with pink noise and an RTA, I had to make very little adjustment to these.
After purchasing a new Kenwood KDC - X599, I decided I needed new speakers, so after speaking to a Crutchfield representative, I chose the Polk db651s. They sound great. Perfect choice.
Pros: Very fast delivery. Great Product, Very easy to install.
I haven't installed them yet. They are going in my camper, but I did hook them up to another stereo and they sound great.
I paired four of these speakers with a Kenwood KDC-BT362U in a 1990 Dodge Dakota. I was looking for good sound on a budget. These speakers ound great. Clear, crisp highs. Great bass response. These provide enough bass without rattling the windows.
Polk speakers sound so good in my Toyota truck. Good balance of highs and lows.
Pros: Easy to install.
I replaced the stock speakers in my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with these speakers. The speakers are crisp, loud with no distortion, and sound really good. My sub doesn't overpower them like it has in other vehicles. I can actually listen to music and hear everything instead of just the thumping of the bass. The speakers by themselves have no bass pushing them with the 50 watts from my receiver, but I have an amp and sub for that.
I have them in the doors of my 2005 corolla, JVC head unit, and powered by a sound ordnance 75x4 amp. I can push these almost to max on the amp, and that's plenty loud for anything I can imagine. I listen to everything from rock to folk to hip hop and everything in between. I'm pretty used to live concert level audio from the front row. While these don't quite get that loud, they get darn near close enough for me. I work as a courier, so I'm driving all day, and I have not found fault with these yet. But beware! These do not go low enough to use without a sub. As long as you have or are planning on a sub, these will be perfect. If you don't want a sub, I've heard that the db651 NOT db651S has a much better bass response (35Hz vs 50Hz) for the same price. All in all, great door speakers.
For the price these speakers worked better than expected.
Pros: Fit well and easy to install.
Cons: They make the remaining OEM speaker poor performance more noticeable because they sound so good.
Polk Audio does it again! Sound quality and clarity makes these a must have for the Polk fan. With the info given by the Crutchfield team, these make for an easy install and sound amazing. Not to mention the amazing price for such a great speaker :)
Pros: Quality, Clarity, Easy install
Replaced 23 year old Camry door speakers with the Polks. What a difference! 1st step to also replace head unit and rears. Ok bass but agree with other reviewer that they need amp to be at their best.
Pros: Crutchfield service. Master sheet info. (I have shop manual and info was dead on.) Easy install.
These speakers are screamers. Sound Great!!
Pros: Easy installation.
Great sound, easy install
I had a set of Polk dB 6x9 in my front doors, but wasn't really getting a lot from my rear doors (which were still factory speakers). Finally upgraded the rear ones and it really evened out my system. Loved the 6x9s I already had, and the 651 slims didn't disappoint.
Pros: Great speakers Compact package for those tight installations where the full size 6 ½s just won't fit Good price
Cons: People say these have low bass response compared to the regular 651. Havent heard the regular ones, but I would say these definitely aren't lacking in any area
Great price for a great speaker. I've read reviews with people unhappy with the bass quality. One thing I believe they have in common is that they were not running an amplifier to them (your factory head unit does not have enough power to run these speakers well). I installed these speakers (55W RMS) with an alpine head unit and alpine amplifier equaling 45W RMS and they sound phenomenal! Mids and highs are sharp and crisp and the bass is Amazing! I drive a S2000 and only have two 6.5" speakers with some tweeters and it's impressive how much bass there is. I can't wait till the surround and spider are broken in on the speakers. I heard that these speakers sound noticeably better after they are broken in with even more bass!
Pros: Well built, large tweeter
These are for the rear doors of a 2006 Silverado CC HD. I am using these as mid/tweet since I have a powered subwoofer. I powered them from a SO 50W amp and they sound great! I have the amp set to HP and are feeding these 80Hz and above. I intentionally left out the low frequencies so the speakers could work in their designed range. I have the 6501 separates in the front doors powered from the same amp and I think these sound better, more balanced. Though crutchfield said I could not fit the non-S version I am pretty sure my door would have taken them no problem. I still don't regret getting the shallow version because as I said, these sound great. Not sure how happy I would be with these without a subwoofer.
Pros: Look and sound nice
Sounds very distorted at loud volume.not a lot bass either.hoping after they break in they put out more bass.
Pros: Look nice
Cons: Not enough bass
Sound great. Put them in the soundbar of my '14 JK. Also used a Dynamat type product and polyfil in the soundbar at the same time so can't tell which item made the most improvements but all sound great.
Cons: They fit fine into the mounting bracket but the mounting bracket holes don't line up with the soundbar wholes. Had to take out the clip from the soundbar to make them fit which causes the screw to not be able to screw in tight and create a minor rattle with heavy bass songs.
I just installed these Saturday and am in the process of breaking them in. Already I can tell you they sound a whole lot crisper and clearer than the stock speakers were. While there is not a whole lot of bass, there is some present. Don't expect big thumps because that's not what these speakers are for. You can definitely hear the richness of the sound quality with these. In the past I have had Pioneer speakers when I've upgraded. Right now I'm really glad I went with Polk. I put them in the front and back of a 2011 Impreza hatchback.
Pros: Great fit Excellent sound quality Easy install
Cons: Not big on bass (but it wasn't expected)
Sound is great.
Install was very easy, though my soldering iron was super hot (pen non adjustable) I was able to flash the tinned wires to the male terminals without compromising the speakers tinsel leads. They sound very clean, and am only running the aftermarket head unit's amp to them. I have these installed in factory front and rear door locations and they sound great!
Pros: They are Polk Fit in my factory locations with easy to use brackets
Cons: They went on sale a few weeks after I ordered/installed them.
Crisp clear sound at high volumes.
Pros: Easy to install. Great sound.
Simple installation with beautiful sounds coming from the rear door Polk audio speakers. I cannot believe I ever paid someone a lot of my hard earned money to install these!
Pros: Excellent sound performance inexpensive bang for the buck!
Cons: Need to sell them in sets of four!
Definitely a sound upgrade to the stock speakers. Powered by an Alpine HU. But the bracket used to install is a bit difficult to anchor. The long machine screw head can't be fully seated because the edge of the mounting bracket gets in the way. Fortunately I was able to snap the door panel over it even though it protruded some. Also need to include screws to mount speaker to the bracket. I had to run to an auto parts store to get some.
Pros: Better sound
Cons: Challenging installation and missing screws.
Crystal highs and very good midrange
