Our take on the Polk Audio DXi6500

by Jo Greene
Polk Audio

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

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
Polk's DXi6500 component speaker system features 6-1/2" woofers with polymer/mica composite cones that are lightweight and stiff, so they 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.

Silk/polymer dome tweeters broadcast sweet sound
Rest assured, you'll hear every detail of your most enthralling musical moments. Each 1" silk/polymer dome tweeter brings out the high-frequency highlights in your music, and a proprietary magnetic liquid cools the tweeters so you'll get clear sound and excellent long-term performance. You can set your own stage — surface- or flush-mount the tweeters with the included swivel-mount cups, and aim the tweeters towards your ears so you can really enjoy the show.

External crossovers for stand-out detail
Polk includes high-quality crossover networks that create a smooth transition between woofer and tweeter, so you'll hear accurate, balanced performance from this system. From an intensely quiet acoustic pluck to the most exhilarating electric solo, it'll be a very entertaining ride.

Woofers
Tweeters
Crossovers

Woofers

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 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: The Polk DXi 6500 system features a Dynamic Balance, polymer/mica composite cone woofers. These composite cones feature tremendous stiffness-to mass ratio. Lower mass means faster transients and finer detail.

Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.

Mounting: Out of the box the DXi 6500 woofers are a direct replacement for many standard 6-3/4" applications. Two mounting brackets are included with holes matching standard 6-1/2" (3-hole), Ford 6-1/2" (asymmetrical 4-hole), and various 6-3/4" applications. Without using the mounting brackets the speaker also fits into many standard 6-1/2" openings, but with a four hole pattern is not a direct replacement (new screw holes would need to be drilled; in this instance mounting depth would be 1.984" and mounting height 0.468"; this application does not sort in the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector because using the mounting bracket requires no modification, and is therefore the preferred 6-1/2" mounting method).

Tweeters

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

Neodymium Magnets: Each tweeter employs a light-weight neodymium magnet for better efficiency.

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

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Surface Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height 1.036" 0.404"
Depth 0.817" (screw depth) 0.951"
Frame Diameter 1.997" 2.291"
Cutout Diameter N/A 1.943"

Crossovers

Design: The outboard Butterworth crossovers are 2-way with a 4 kHz crossover point; both the high-pass and low-pass output slopes are 12 dB/octave.

Tweeter Level Switch: You can adjust the output of the tweeter to match a level appropriate to your vehicle or your system. On the end of crossover (opposite the terminals) the switch can be set to -3 dB, 0 dB, or +3 dB.

Protection Circuit: Each crossover has a built-in electronic circuit that protects the tweeter from accidental overdriving.

Crossover Connections: The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals. The terminals will accommodate the included wire or spade connectors up to 0.35" wide.

Mounting: There are two mounting holes in the base of each crossover; the cover must be removed to install the mounting screws.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 3.095"
  • Height: 1.072"
  • Depth: 5.029"

sounds good

Written By tony, wichita,kansas on Wednesday, January 01, 2014
 
Improvement over stock speakers my kid was amazed at the difference these speakers made in the overall sound of her head unit. These speakers were not listed to fit the front doors of her suzuki reno, but after a chat with advisor CJ I was told there shouldn't be a problem. No problem at all, tweets fit and woofers bolted right in. Thanx again Crutchfield for making it easy on a dad with a budget. Problem now is I have to purchase the rear doors hope I can find as good of deal on them, I'll be looking.
Pros:
Perfect fit sound great
Cons:
Made in China.

Great set of component speakers

Written By BrandonB, Bristol, TN on Tuesday, December 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Absolutely great set of components, especially with the sale price I managed to pick them up at. Sound is very well rounded from bass all the through typically harsh symbol crashes. The tweeters are a bit bright out of the box, but they settle in nicely and the adjustable crossover definitely helps with that. The crossovers and be a bit difficult to mount, that is a given with any component system.
Pros:
Smooth, excellent sound over the entire music spectrum.
Cons:
Mounting options for crossovers

Better sound in JK Unlimited

Written By MadMas, Fairfield, CT on Tuesday, December 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought these speakers and was told by people on the Jeep Wrangler JK forums that they were going to suck becuase the head unit in the Wrangler was this that or the other thing. Truth...be told is that these speakers kick some serious butt with the factory head unit. I fabricated a small bracket to put the tweeter in the location of the factory unit, and the woofer in the stock position. I matched it with the Polk 651s in the sound bar. What a difference.
Pros:
much better sound
Cons:
hard to find a good spot to mount the crossover...this is a car issue

Great speakers

Written By Fanarkin, Salt Lake City,UT on Friday, December 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Woke up the factory system completely.Installed in the rear doors of my 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I can't believe the improvement it has made. I used to have to fade all the way to the rear to hear the back speakers, now it is set in the center position because of the clarity of the Polks. Great choice.
Pros:
Sound great.Fits in factory recesses with the included adapters.Cleans up the muddiness of the factory system.
Cons:
Finding a place to hide the crossovers.

DXi6500 in 2013 Toyota Tacoma D-Cab

Written By LT, Honolulu, HI on Thursday, December 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I like these speakers, but they need more power than the factory stereo provides. I don't usually listen to the stereo too loud anyway so these work fine for me. If you need loud volume, you definitely want to run these off an amp. They are still 100 times better than the stock speakers. And you can't beat the price. The installation was relatively easy, but required some minor customization for the tweeter.
Pros:
Clean, smooth sound. Good build quality.
Cons:
Begging for more power for good volume.

The speakers sound great as rear door replacements in my '01 Tahoe. Only issue is that there are no vehicle specific instructions included or available from crutchfield. Tweeter/crossover placement took a while to set up (door panel clearance, etc..)

Written By 6Nola, Jonesboro Ga. on Saturday, November 30, 2013
 
I think for a first time buyer I did pretty good with the help of a Crutchfield associate. The speakers are great and ad much needed highs to my system.
Pros:
I should've gotten help from technician and installed myself.
Cons:
I had no advice before hand.

Awesome Speakers

Written By JC, Brunswick, GA on Saturday, November 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these for the front speakers and I bought the Polk Audio DXi650 for my rear speakers for my 2008 Chev Avalanche. I installed these to go along with my newly installed Kenwood DPX500BT. This system sounds AWESOME! The bass is very rich and powerful. The highs are super crisp. Very easy to install. Crutchfield sent me everything I needed for a easy install. Cudos to Jenny, my sales advisor, she was awesome walking me through my purchase....
Pros:
Great sounding speakers. The bass is powerful and the highs are super crisp.
Cons:
NONE!

Better than my old Boston Acoustics !!!!!

Written By Mando, Houston, Texas on Saturday, July 06, 2013
 
I used these to replace my Boston Acoustics SR60's in my 2011 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab PU. These sound so much better ! One of the BA woofers blew and BA wanted almost $100 for a replacement. I'm so glad I bought these instead. They sound so much better all the way around. As others have noted, the tweeter can be a little harsh if not set correctly. Because of the location of the tweeters in my Tacoma I had to set the tweeters to -3 db on the crossover and it rocks ! Unlike others, I found them to produce a nice tight mid bass. I'm pushing these with a JL Audio XD500/3 along with a JL Audio 8W3V3-4 subwoofer in a custom box designed to fit in place of the rear center console. This combination rocks my Tacoma with hard pounding bass, nice tight mid bass and clean smooth highs - absolutely NO DISTORTION, even at volumes that are typically too loud for most of my passengers. I'm more impressed with these than my old Boston Acoustics. I'm glad one of the SR60 woofers blew, I'm so much happier with these ! I'm only running one set of these in the front door panels and the sub in the rear - hence the 3 channel JL Audio Power Amp. This combination does an excellent job for any type of music - from Jazz, rock to bass thumping rap.
Pros:
Easy install, adjustable tweeter setting, nice tight bass response with smooth clean highs.
Cons:
None !

Excellent Sound; Good Bass;

Written By MarcT, Harrisburg, PA on Sunday, June 16, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I am quite pleased with these speakers, especially since I could not audition them anywhere. I hate you cannot find speakers you want to buy and listen to them first. So these should not disappoint most people. These speakers provider good, clear sound. The highs can be a little bright but they can be dampened with the crossover or your head unit. Yes, these do not have pounding bass. Anyone expecting bass for rap music or other heavy bass music need to go out and buy a sub-woofer. Anyone expecting great bass out of a coaxial speaker or component system like this just do not understand speakers or sound. Good solid bass for most people. If you want to vibrate the hell out of your car and you, buy a sub-woofer and provide it with some serious wattage. For 95% of the folks upgrading their OEM speakers, these will be a big improvement.

Installation went smoothly. Instructions from Crutchfield are far better than what comes with the Polk speakers. I would suggest taking off your door panel before ordering to be sure the crossover has a place to fit. I was lucky and found the one spot on the door where it will work on a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe. Plenty of wire was provided and the speaker covers are fairly normal; not very outrageous. Good for the older and conservative folks.

The bass is solid; just don't expect any thumpin'.

Polk Audio speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers replaced a pair of blown Boston Acoustic speakers in the rear deck of my car. Powered by a JL Audio 300/4 v2, they are bright and very clean. These were purchased at Crutchfield, and for the price they are probably the best bang for the buck.
Pros:
Bright, clean sound.

Poor sound quality

Written By Jerome, APO Okinawa, Japan on Sunday, May 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've installed and had several types of component speaker systems and the sound quality of these speakers were disappointing. I'm running them off a Kenwood Excellion 600 watt Amp, and Kenwood 719 DVD head unit. With both of these components and the numerous sound settings, these speakers should have been rocking. In my opinion, I could have gotten better sound from none comments speakers. Besides the sound quality, they were easy to install with everything that came in the box; I didn't need to use the speaker brackets or make any modifications. They fit perfectly in the 6 1/2" openings where my old speakers were.
Pros:
Install was very easy.
Cons:
I was not impress with the sound quality. Tweeters didn't come with an upright facing mount, therefore, the maximum adjustment angle is roughly 20%. I could have gotten better sound quality for less.

Excellent in all Categories

Written By stcopley, Minnesota on Friday, May 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I use these speakers in my competition car along with the composite 6x9s in the rear at 110 rms for all of them and they still work great even being pushed past their supposed limit. Crystal clear with an excellent note range dynamatted all the way around. This is in a 1996 Honda Civic Hatchback

However, I have them in my 2003 Dodge Durango as well for just daily driving at 60rms each, and they still amaze me even with no special prepping done. I've been through a lot of speakers, but none of this value yet.
Pros:
Excellent Value, clear and wide range of sound
Cons:
Aftermarket Grills are too large for most applications.

Awesome sound / so-so instructions

Written By Kevin, Grand Rapids, MI on Sunday, May 12, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
First let me say that these speakers sound incredible and are a world of improvement over the stock speakers in my Jeep. The highs are a little bright so I set the crossover switch to -3db to help even out the sound. The install was a definite pain. The instructions for the most part were correct, but I wonder if they were updated to include other years than the one shown on the first page. The passenger side installation went without any problems, but the drivers side was a nightmare. No matter how I tried I couldn't get the factory speaker enclosure out of the dash, so I had to remove/install the speaker while reaching up inside the dash. Splicing the wires went ok until you need to tie into the factory feed from the radio, there was nothing in the instructions about which wire was positive/negative (one was gray/yellow, one was gray/purple). Kudos to Crutchfield support who knew the answer (they might want to add the answer to the instructions). Even though I had some difficulty with the install, it was well worth it.
Pros:
Great sound, Crutchfield support
Cons:
Incomplete installation instructions

Great sound and crossover controls. Very clear but has a void in the mid bass range that detracts from this set. Better than my factory but definitely lacking. Will probably try a different set in the future.

Tacoma sounds great now!!

Written By Eric D, San Diego on Sunday, April 28, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great sound and easy to install. I had to modify the factory tweeter a little (gut it) to mount the new one. The brackets for the mid fit perfectly. I hide the crossover behind the mids in the door. I am pushing them with just a Clarion head unit. I could probably use an amp but they sound pretty danm good without. Much, much, much better than the stock paper crap they call speakers. The lows are good but if you want great sound everyone needs a sub.
Pros:
Great sound without amp
Cons:
None

too brilliant

Written By Mike, Kyle, TX on Thursday, April 25, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice speakers, sound good. But they have too much brilliance. Best to put the switch on the crossover to -6db or the highs just take over everything.
Pros:
Adapter rings a BIG plus, was able to fit it to the VW's front door 8" opening with help from a spacer I got from Amazon.
Cons:
Too much high, but hoping once I rip the door panels off and adjust the switch, they will sound better

excellent

Written By Steve, pa on Wednesday, April 03, 2013
 
I don't normally review products of any kind, but I am for these because I think they are exceptional speakers, especially for the money. I'm not sure what the reviewers who stated these have little or no bass response are powering them with (likely a weak factory or aftermarket deck), but I have no problem at all with the bass response of these speakers. I am powering them with an old school Hifonics Thor series viii (125 x 2 rms), and have them crossed over at 80 hz, with a 12 db/octave slope, and get plenty of bass and no distortion, even at high volume and with driving them with slightly more power than their rms power rating of 100 watts. I can cross them at 60 hz and get slightly more bass, but at high volumes I do get some slight distortion so I opt for 80 hz.

I hope this review is useful to someone. I almost didn't buy these speakers due to the reviews of no bass response, but used properly, this is just not true.

I suspect some people are either under powering these speakers or expecting them to perform like a subwoofer, or both.
Pros:
sound quality, power handling, price
Cons:
none

Awsome Sound From a Small Speaker

Written By Jackson, Sykesville, MD on Wednesday, April 03, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The speakers hit a lot harder than expected and I am overall satisfied with this purchase. Installation was a breeze into my 2001 Nissan Sentra Rear deck. Overall I have replaced all of the car speakers with DXI series speakers while spending under $300 these speakers sound better than my friends $1500 Kicker sound system. I would defiantly recommend this speaker for someone that likes basey music or just likes loud clear music.
Pros:
Bass, Quality, Ease of installation
Cons:
A little distorted at high volumes due to too much power from head unit

after tried this components speakers in the front and rear the Polk Audio DXi 650s i would say the sound really good, im not an expert but im really picky, high is so clear and perfect, but when u turn it up is a lit distortion, the receiver im using is Alpine CDE-135BT, the sound loud and good quality compared with the stock speakers, i just installed them in my accord 2010 sedan LX, u can see the difference, overall, amazing quality, but bass from 1-10 i would say 1 or 2, not kidding, i had to buy right away a KICKER TS10L3 SINGLE 10" , because u can see there is missing something, i decided to give a tried 2 this POLK based on the good reviews, and im happy i wasn't wrong, ill recommend this to someone looking for an upgrade in ur audio system, but if are looking for BASS, this is not for u, or if u are willing to add an AMP and SUB go for it, but i know not every body does that, Alright thats it thank u for reading guys

No Bass Whatsoever

Written By GrantG, west palm beach, FL on Wednesday, March 13, 2013
 
These speakers sound great and are extremely clear, but have no bass in them at all. I wasn't looking for them to sound like 2 12's but I was hoping for a little bit more punch to them. If you want a full range of sound, you'll need a subwoofer to fill them in. They really shine in the upper mids and highs, but don't make anything even in some of the lower mids.
Pros:
Very clear, little distortion at high volumes
Cons:
weak low end

I am amazed by the clarity and sound of these speakers. After upgrading my 2004 Silverado with Bose system with these speakers in the front, the first thing I noticed was the clear highs and amazing imaging. The soundstage is very wide over the factory speakers.

sound is great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed in a 2012 Tacoma in the front doors. I am powering these via a Alpine KTP445U. They are crystal clear and great all around speakers. I was looking at much more expensive speakers but am glad that I went with these. My volume level has increased and i can turn the volume up to a point where it is unbearable to listen to without any distortion at all. The install was very easy and the fit and finish is excellent. I set the tweeters at 0 on the crossovers and it is perfect for my truck. I highly recommend the Polk Audio speakers to anyone who wants crystal clear sound at a great price!
Pros:
Crystal clear sound at a great price!!
Cons:
none!!

Really Nice

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers are just amazing, The tweeters can be a little harsh at times but all you need to do is adjust the eq. The bass is very good for a component system at this price. Originally had a Kenwood component set the sucked, so I returned them and got these and Wow. What a difference. Im using them with no amp and the original stock radio and they are still really great. Cant wait to upgrade the head unit and add an amp cause it can only get better from here!
Pros:
Good Bass, Great packaging, Made in AMERICA,
Cons:

Great sounding Speakers

Written By mswhite1997, Sevierville, TN on Saturday, January 05, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these for my 2005 Tacoma to upgrade my speakers. The speakers have a great sound, and work good off of my Pioneer DVD unit. Installation takes a little while. The only thing Crutchfield missed in my installation items was metal brackets to mount the tweaters on. If these go into a factory tweeter spot behind a door panel, make sure to ask for the metal brackets. They look like metal pipe hangers. long thin sheet metal with holes in it. Also, make sure to buy extra wire like I did, so you don't have to mount the Crossovers in the door. Water could get to them, and then you are buying new speakers. My next step is to buy an amp to see how these sound with a little more power behind them.
Pros:
great sounding
Cons:
Crutchfield missed the bracket for mounting the tweeter, but improvised. Installation takes a while, but I knew that going in.

Major improvement

Written By HARLEQUIN, Long Island on Sunday, December 30, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I had Pioneer 2 way 6-1/2" speakers in both doors and the sound was very harsh to the point where I couldn't listen to my system. I have always loved POLK speakers and am happy that they are made in the USA as well. I have many POLK speakers at home so I thought it was worth trying their car speakers. The guy at POLK recommended going with a component set up this time which makes a lot of sense. I put the POLK's in and the difference was night and day. The harshness is gone and the sound is real! Thank you POLK.

Polk DXi6500

Written By JayGrif, Clementon, New Jersey on Tuesday, December 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great moderately priced set of components. I installed these in the rear doors of my 2003 KIA Sorento & I'm very happy with the sound. I custom installed the tweeters in the pillars between the front & rear doors & these Polks sound great. I'm feeding them 60w RMS from a Kenwood KAC-8405. These speakers are a big upgrade from any stock set up but you should definitely power them with an amp to bring out their full potential. I can turn my HU volume up to max without distortion. I have a Kenwood Excelon x994 HU that has some very good e.q. & time alignment adjustments so I can really fine tune my system. The highs & mids are excellent & the tweeters are not too harsh or bright. The bass response is moderate but that is to be expected, get a sub woofer to fill in the lows. I have Polk DB 6501's in the front doors & an MTX JH4510-2XD enclosed sub woofer powered by a Kenwood KAC 8105D amp to round out my system. I couldn't be more pleased with the overall balance of my system. I've now completed a 2 year gradual component by component replacement of my factory sound system. Buy these Polks and you won't be disappointed!!
Pros:
Good components that can handle lots of power. Tweeters not as bright or harsh as others in this range. CRUTCHFIELD technical support & customer service.
Cons:
None.

Polk Audio DXi6500

Written By Glen, Chicago on Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed my new speakers this past weekend. They replaced the stock ones. This is on a 2012 Toyota Tacoma AccessCab. They were a well needed improvment. They have great sound but I need to upgrade the stock stereo to feed them more power. With the stock stereo the speakers start to distort at higher volume. I had to call tech support on the wiring harness. The stock speakers had a seperate tweeter and mid range. When I asked tech support on what wires feed the cross over I was told to just use the wires that went to the stock mid range. I found on my own that the wire going to the tweeter has to have the jumper left connected to feed the new speakers.
Pros:
Very good sound. Fairly ez to hook up.
Cons:
none

Th installation for this product was super easy, felt like I needed the easy button.. The sound is outstanding I have gone through 5 different speakers and these blow everything I've heard out the water. They have good tight bass and incredible highs. I know at least for me the price is on the high side but treat yourself as an ole saying goes you get what you pay for and for me these were worth the money!!!
Pros:
Great sound, pevitable tweeters, east installation

Very Nice Improvement

Written By Rich, Fremont, OH on Thursday, September 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replacing the old stock speakers in my 2001 Siverado with these Polk Audio DXi6500's was a very nice improvement. The woofers needed some break in time to show their nice bass potential which is normal. The tweeters are just great. Had to do some modification with the old tweeter mount with the Dremel tool but the new tweeters flush fit in nicely. Did not need the adapter brackets for the woofers and mounted them directly to the steel door frame, however, this left a space between the door and the inside panel. Glued some foam strips on the inside panel around the opening to fill this in a bit. Sound improvement is great even with the stock radio
Pros:
Nice sound and the tweeter is very crisp. Good imaging as external crossover makes a huge difference in lieu of just a capacitor in line. Crossover small enough to be secured inside the door.
Cons:
The adapter bracket could not be easily secured to the steel door of the truck but really didn't need it.

Still on the fence

Written By Twin Cam Special, Seattle WA on Thursday, September 06, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Installed these speakers along with a new JVC head unit into my 2012 Subaru WRX. It seemed I was in for a treat when I got the speakers connected up on the first side and momentarily ran power to them before putting the door back together. However, after reassembling everything and listening to some of my favorite music I can only say that they are at least good enough, that they have grown on me as I've put a few hours of music through them, and overall I'm happy with the purchase. I also slapped Dynamat on both doors, and this certainly helped with enhancing the music. And double checked polarity settings on the crossovers, so no issues there. If you have any audiophile inclinations I would recommend a higher grade of speakers, such as the MM5251s. After all, if you can afford a few extra hundred, you're going to be living with your choice for a while, so you may as well pony up for something really remarkable if you can.
Pros:
Good to excellent sound quality, especially for the price. Great at playing "Unchained" album by Johnny Cash.
Cons:
Close to remarkable. Loud and clear yes, maybe not quite as stunningly and awesomely gratifying as a higher grade of speaker might be.

Just pure awesome

Written By FishFry, Casper, WY on Monday, September 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these speakers to go with a kenwood KDC X494 deck and a JL w6 sub. The deck and sub have been installed for about 2 years now and I was wanting more of the high end notes. I wanted something that was easy to install and could add a amp later if I wanted. I spent a few hours putting the speakers in. None of the brackets for the tweeters really fit my complex venting area (04 jeep liberty) so I just took my old tweeter, cut out the cone and magnet, and just put the new one in with the bracket.

Firing the system up I had my volume on 1/3 of the way and I could already tell a difference. Up to a decent volume the highs were absolutely incredible. They cymbals were ridiculously clear, sounding like I was the drummer. Female voices sound especially good. I can even hear the singer take a breath. It is just incredible. I am very happy. I will probably not put an amp to this guys because my deck provides enough power for me and they are plenty loud.

I ran into some wiring questions and instead of blindly finding my way around the internet I called the product support service number and within 15 sec I was talking to a very knowledgeable service rep who was more than happy to answer my questions. He also gave me some tips about mounting and some better ways to run wires.
Pros:
Incredibly clear, very loud, quality speaker, GREAT customer support.
Cons:
None

Clean and Clear

Written By Anonymous, Levittown, PA on Wednesday, July 11, 2012
 
I just installed these in my H3 to replace some coaxial Boston Acoustics. The Bostons were clean sounding, but I needed some tweets cause i blew the stock. These components were easy to install. I have them set up with a Pioneer 4200 and a Pioneer GM-D9500F amp. The woofers are punchy and the tweets are very clean. I have the crossover set at 0db. I still have the Bostons in the rear, I feel t hat the sound is a lot richer. I cant wait to hear them after they break in.
Pros:
Very Powerful and clean
Cons:
None so far.

Overall a pretty good speaker. Leaves you wanting a little more on the low end. The product is good, but the installation guidelines for a Jeep Rubicon Unlimited are worthless. These are component speakers and the guide offers no guidance on the tweeters and crossovers.

Bad installation guide.

Kevin (my adviser) steered me to these. I did a factory up grade to my '08 Tundra. New H.U. and Polk DXi's in the doors 6500's front and 5250's rear. As soon as we hooked up the first speaker to check for polarity I knew i was in for a treat. I matched these with a matching RMS/CH amp and I'm running it around 70%. I have so much headroom it's not even funny as they break in I'll up the wattage but as of 2 weeks in I'm in music heaven.
Pros:
Everything
Cons:
If I find one I'll come back and note it.

I used these speakers to replace my JBL C608GTi component speaker system that I had in my car when one of the component subs blew, they were rated for 150RMS and even though there really is nothing that I could find to match them, these speakers are rated for 100RMS which have turned out excellent. They hit produce great sound and quality and do not distort, you get what you pay for, and for a little extra cash, they are worth it. Nice and easy setup.

Fantastic

Written By Brian, Maine on Sunday, October 02, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These speakers have been in my 2011 Jeep Wrangler for about two months. They have been broken in and now sound amazing. I've got them fed from a 50 rms watt per channel amp with the crossover set to about 100hz, sending everything lower to my sub.

Installation was fairly straight forward. As noted, my Jeep's stock tweeter mounts needed to be filed to make the hole bigger, they look like they have always been there and much better than stock. There is no going back to stock which is fine in my situation but something to think about if you are leasing. I installed foam baffles behind the woofers.

About the sound. I had originally set the tweeters to +3 (or +6 I forget which) but brought them back down to 0db once I fine tuned the crossover points. At the +db setting they had a bit of a sizzle but sound silky smooth at 0db. The woofer has nice punch and is very accurate listening to everything from talk, classical and mellow rock (Jack Johnson, Mishka), all the way to hard metal (Hatebreed, Machine Head, etc).

I am very pleased with this component system and would recommend them to anyone.

Picked up a set of these dxi 6500s for my 95 civic project. hooked them up on the stock honda head unit and WOW, even on such a low watt source they still get really loud and clear. I had to cut the holes for the tweets in my pillars, and i put a little dynamat around the woofer. amazing sound, great price, sexy look. Deff will be putting an amp on these very soon to bring out the max potential.

Breathtaking mids and highs

Written By Carl, Pennsylvania on Friday, August 05, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This component set is breathtaking. The mids and highs are unreal. Sounds like you have a private concert in front of you. I installed this in my 04 Durango with the tweeters in the dash speaker location and the drivers in the front doors. Blows my factory Infinity system out of the water. The bass on these speakers is pretty good as well, but I have a subwoofer dedicated to serve that purpose.

Overall I would highly recommend these speakers. The tweeters are not harsh like Infinity references ones.

This is my first set of component speakers I've ever owned, and I have been very impressed. The woofers deliver nice bass without sounding too distorted and the tweeters are very clean sounding. I paried them with a Kenwood 60w amp and the system is very nice. The woofers installed perfectly with the mounting ring included in the box, the crossover fit exactly in in the door panel on the inside. The tweeters "nearly" fit perfectly in the sail trim panels on the upper door. I have been extremely pleased with these speakers.

Fantastic

Written By Steve, Baltimore Maryland on Tuesday, July 19, 2011
 
Okay, so first off, the other reviewer, should have returned the speakers for another set. Crutchfield takes these things very seriously.

Anyways, these speakers are fantastic. 50-150 bucks cheaper then JBL P660c's ((depending where you buy)) and yet louder, clearer, and smaller (depth wise). I cannot believe how amazing these speakers are. I have an amp that will run these at 75watts each RMS and about 150watts PEAK. Mixed with the JVC KD-R900, the music is so clear, I just can't believe it. Especially since these sound better then speakers that cost more. I don't use dynamat because its added weight, and yet still sounds fantastic. Sure it COULD probably increase mid bass response, but really, get a sub and stop setting the crossover for that sub at 80, rocket up to 150 or 200 where it belongs. :D

Happy Listening.

Impressive sound, not so impressive quality

Written By Stlyns, Ohio on Sunday, June 05, 2011
 
I purchased and installed these in my truck, an '05 Ranger. They replaced a pair of Pioneer 6x8 4-ways, and sound so much better.

Installation required making my own adaptors, as the included ones placed the speakers against the door panel.

The speaker surrounds were poorly attached to the basket, as they peeled loose with ease, with very light thumb pressure. It appeared as though the adhesive used was improperly applied, and missed the edge of the surround, thus having a narrow adhesive strip at the innermost edge of the basket at the outer edge of the roll, maybe 1/16" wide I was able to reattach them myself with super glue. Not something you should need to do to a pair of two hundred dollar speakers.

The tweeter mounting cups don't hold the tweeters well. After shutting the doors, they would fall out. I fixed that with some double sided tape.

I doubt I would buy another Polk Audio product. Most of the issues I encountered were solved easily enough, but the speaker surrounds coming off the baskets were just blatant signs of unbelievably poor quality manufacturing.

I will most likely replace these, as the Polk name is no longer synonomous with quality.
