Our take on the Polk Audio DXi461

by John Pollard
Polk Audio

Enjoy your music even more

Go ahead, circle the parking lot till your favorite song is over. Polk Audio's DXi Series speakers will make you want to hit "repeat" so you can hear it all over again. Polk uses a high-tech approach and ideal materials to give your tunes an exciting new edge.

Precision woofers showcase your music

The DXi461 speakers feature 4"x6" polymer composite cones that are lightweight and stiff, so they can create a big sound with minimal distortion.

Polk also uses laser imaging to craft woofer cones that are perfectly balanced to resist distortion-causing resonances.

Features

High Efficiency Design: The Polk Audio DXi Series speakers feature a high efficiency design; meaning better sound and more volume using less power.

Dynamic Balance Driver Technology: 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.

Klippel Optimized Components: For a driver to reproduce complex sounds accurately, the cone must move exactly the same distance and manner in both directions. The Klippel distortion analyzer, a device that uses a laser and sophisticated software to do large-scale analysis of drivers in motion, lets Polk optimize the speaker's motor structure, voice coil alignment, and suspension to yield the best possible performance.

Composite Cones: Each speaker features a Dynamic Balance, Bi-Laminate composite, polypropylene cone woofer. These composite cones feature tremendous stiffness-to mass ratio, resulting in faster transients and finer detail.

Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the speaker uses rubber surrounds.

Aluminum Dome Tweeters: Each speaker features a 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter for clear, accurate highs.

Polk DXi461

Written By Scott, Columbia City, IN on Monday, June 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I mounted these speakers in the rear pillar of a 2000 Silverado. The speakers have a very flat sound. I have them connected to a Clarion CZ302 and no amp, which could be the issue. They might sound better with more power. I put Sony XSGT1638F speakers in the doors and they sound much better than the Polk's.
Pros:
- Easy install...needed to drill 4 holes to mount. - Crutchfield Support
Cons:
- Flat sounding

Good speakers

Written By Paul, Western PA on Wednesday, June 04, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed in my 1996 Chevy Cavalier convertible doors. It fit the factory molded plastic housing but I had to cut out some of the webbing in the housing due to the location of the terminals and the capacitors. No big deal, still plenty of material left in the housing. Speakers sound good.
Pros:
Nice speakers
Cons:
Have to modify existing housing.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these in the front dash of a 95 Blazer, and couldn't be happier with the sound. Very smooth vocals, with none of the harshness or sibilance that I remember from my last set of speakers with metal tweeters from many years ago. They were too quiet running with factory wiring from my aftermarket head unit, but a small 50 watt per channel amp brought them to life. Very impressed with the mid bass from such small speakers.
Pros:
Clear vocals, surprisingly good mid bass.
Cons:
Needed an amplifier to really shine.

Pros:
good speaker, metal frame no complaints
Cons:
no cons so far and lets keep it like this, Polk Audio is a very nice brand

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replacement was easy, didn't quite fit flush with original speaker covers (too thick on flange). Had to grind down mounting bracket for speakers to fit as best as they could.
Pros:
Much better than stock!
Cons:
Not plug and play but not too hard to modify

2004 GMC Sieara

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had first ordered 4" round speakers for the rear doors, my mistake. They were quality but not very luod. The people at Crutchfield walked me though the return witch cost $10.00 (that's fair) and I ordered the Polk DX 461. Super happy. They rock. My 2004 pick up has the stock Bose deck and up graded Polk speakers, real happy!
Pros:
Good clean sound that fills the cab nicely.
Cons:
None

Not bad, needs an amp.

Written By MattZ, Manteno, IL on Thursday, September 26, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They sound moderately better than what was in there, I'm sure they really need an amp to bring the full sound out. Every Polk speaker I've had has been great, and always needed an amp...

Impressive

Written By GeddyL, New Lexington, Oh on Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I`ve been out of the Car Sound System building process since the early 90`s, and although I knew Polk Audio put out some quality products, I wasn`t expecting much from the 4x6`s I ordered to replace my factory dash speakers in my `97 Blazer. Boy was I wrong. The bass response from these little monsters are enough that I`m holding off replacement of the other 4 speakers until I get brakes replaced(which is just a LITTLE more important than the sound system). Definitely would recommend these for your 4x6 replacements.
Pros:
Terrific bass response for a small speaker, not to mention mid-high level clarity.
Cons:
My dash won`t accommodate 10`s!
