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.
Each DXi461p speaker features a 4" polymer composite cone that's lightweight and stiff, so it can create a big sound with minimal distortion. Polk analyzes their drivers in motion to ensure that cone movement is even and precise. Polk also uses laser imaging to craft woofer cones that are perfectly balanced to resist distortion-causing resonances.
Each 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter brings out the high-frequency highlights in your music, so you'll hear every detail of your most enthralling musical moments. The tweeter and woofer are mounted separately on the plate, so you'll enjoy the superior performance of separate components without having to modify your car. From an intensely quiet acoustic pluck to the most exhilarating electric solo, it'll be a very entertaining ride.

Pros: Easy to install
I was not expecting how great the sound comes out. It really makes a difference. The plus is my kids love them.
They were easy to install and they sound great. I would recommend this product
Pros: Easy to install have a great sound
I purchased these to put into my 2001 chevy s10 and put them in the dash. The were easy to put in and they sound great. Everything came with them as well to make it an easy install.
Pros: Great sound, Easy to put in
Installed these in a 2000 Jeep Wrangler to replace the factory speakers. I am not terribly impressed. They don't sound much different than the factory speakers. I even bought foam baffles hoping they would help. Not noticeably different either way.
Pros: Easy install with provided harness and bracket.
Cons: Not enough of a diffrence over factory speakers to warrant the purchase.
These speakers are OK but short on bass. I would probably go with a 4x6 speaker over the plate speaker with the small "woofer" if I had to replace these again.
Pros: Easy install and decent midrange/highs
Cons: little to no bass output
Overall great sound and quality for the price. Easy and easy install less than 15 min. Installed in 2000 Jeep Wrangler.
Pros: Easy install perfect fit. Waterproof construction, great sound
Cons: You have to push them pretty hard to get decent sound.
Put a set of these in a 2001 Malibu to replace the OEMs. They are paired with Polk's DXi951s in the rear deck and an Infinity powered sub. These are a HUGE improvement over the OEM speakers and sound extremely crisp in mid-highs. When setting up the head unit, played around with the x-overs and fed full spectrum to the speakers just to see how they sound. Not much bass at all, as expected from these little speakers. You will want to pair them with some other speakers to fill in the lows. As usual, Crutchfield came through with the adapter cables so the installation was really easy. Be aware that no speaker grilles are included. I did not need any as the OEM grilles were part of the door panel and work just fine.
Pros: Sound great. Easy installation
Cons: No grilles
These are a great complement to the Polk Audio DXi651s speakers that I have in the front of my old Silverado. Classical and jazz music sounds very crisp.
Pros: Nice mid and high end.
Cons: Probably not suitable as main speakers.
Awesome sound easy installation
These fit in the stock dash mount area, using the provided adapter plates, on my 03 TJ without modification. I went with the higher priced aluminum tweeter version (the ones I am reviewing) thinking they would produce crisper highs when riding with top off my Jeep. I wasn't real impressed with that aspect. They do however sound good. I would buy the less expensive version of these if I had it to do over again. That being said, I don't have that set to listen to so they may not be any better and may in fact be worse. These speakers replaced some really cheap 4x6's I had installed because one of my oem's died. They are a TREMENDOUS improvement over stock and the cheapies I had. These really have a warm/full midrange. Overall these speakers produce a warm clear sound and handle my 20W RMS x 4 head unit very well. I am using these with a JVC KDX250BT Head Unit, Kenwood KSC-SW11 Powered Sub-Woofer (that fits nicely under my back seat), and Polk DXi461p for front.
Pros: Easy Install with adapter (included by Crutchfield). Great Sound!
Excellent replacement for the front speakers in my '06 Jeep Wrangler. Took all of 10 minutes to install after screwing the speaker to the free grill adapter supplied by Crutchfield. Sound excellent. Would recommend them.
Pros: Excellent sounding, easy installation, all needed adapters and wiring plugs were sent with the speakers for free.
decent sound for size, easy install
Speakers fit great in the stock location without modification In my 1976 corvette. I am no expert but they sound great to me for mids-highs. Obviously didn't expect a lot of bass from these smaller speakers. I have a sub in my sound system for that. I also want to point out the great customer service from Crutchfield. Extremely pleased. Thanks!
Pros: Good sounding speaker
Amazing sound from such a small package.
Pros: Price was good and sound was even better
No noticable difference between these and the oem speakers. They look cool but sound is just ok.
Pros: Install was easy with included hardware.
Cons: Wishing I would have tried something else.
These speakers have a very good sound and the vocals are very clear
Upgraded from factory speakers with a pair of these. They sound 100x better than what I had. Well worth every penny.
Purchased these for my Jeep Wrangler (YJ), Installation is not easy on the Wrangler but is straight forward if you take your time. the Speaker Wire harness made that part a snap. These were purchased to complement the sound bar speakers installed above and behind the front seats. Overall I am very satisfied with these speakers.

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 Polk DXi461p speaker features a 4" 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 separate 3/4" aluminum dome tweeter for clear, accurate highs.
