Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'm really starting to love Crutchfield. I purchased two sets of these speakers Wednesday and received them Friday. I had them delivered to my work so I could have improved sound for the ride home. I was not disappointed. I've had a JVC head unit already and replaced the factory subwoofer and amp with a Kicker 6" sub+passive sub box and a twelve year old JBL two channel amp. The factory door speakers were decent (Pioneer components), but these are a huge upgrade. Crystal clear highs and rich mids. These are my first Polk speakers and I'm impressed.

Pros: Clear, full sound. Perfect fit. Not overpriced.

Cons:

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Had these in for about a week now. Still unsure if I like them. Not sure if I'm going deaf in my left ear or maybe the drivers side front speaker is being blocked by the dash, but I can hear the front passenger speaker loud & clear. I drive a 01 expedition. I have 2 pioneer 10" Ts swx2502 in the trunk for bass, but I'm not convinced that these are just not right for my application OR if I need to power them with an amp. Right now they're powered by an old Kenwood kdc-158u deck that I bought years ago. I'll give it time to break in and decide if I want an amp or to replace them. Overall, easy install. Plug n play thanks to the Metra harness supplied. Just had to tie the extra wiring cuz it got caught in the window. Haha. Rookie mistake. Also, nicely packaged and they look awesome.

Pros: Look great! Easy install.

Cons: Still undecided if the sound is great. Clear, but no bass. I might need an amp to power them.

2013 Ford F-150 Lariat
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very good clarity, great sensitivity for a stock head unit, and pretty good lows. Could use a little more bass, but for a 5x7 it's pretty beefy.

Pros: Clarity, great compatibility with stock head unit if you don't have an amp.

Cons: Bass could be a little stronger, but it's still good for it's size.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sounds great in my 04 F150

Pros: Easy to install. I could of swore I heard music where the tweeters go years ago. Didn't hear it when I replaced the factory stereo. Called Crutchfield and Julia was like Joe your truck doesn't have factory tweeters. And she was right. So I upgraded to these 2-way Polks. Now I'm jamming!!

Cons:

They are just OK

Great speakers. Put in my F350 and they are just awesome. Fit right into the factory spots without alteration

Pros: Great sounding speakers

Cons: The harness adapters are really tight to get onto the pins on the speakers. Be careful so you don't break the pin board on the speakers.

Daniel from Fort Worth, TX on 12/19/2018

2008 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put 2 pairs of these into a 2008 F150 SCREW. Had zero issues with getting them in. About 30 min to install all four and that was while drinking my favorite beverage. Replaced the stock speakers and the difference was stark. Amazing tone and quality through lows, mids, and highs. I had planned on getting a sub but honestly with these speakers I don't think I need them. Like always Crutchfield was awesome! Had a question on the front speakers for my truck. Needed to cut off a couple mounting tabs from the speakers with tin snips. Just had to make certain I was right in needing to cut them off.

Pros: Amazing tone through the whole spectrum of sound! Easy installation! Amazing quality for the cost!

Cons: Don't need to buy a sub now really

Crutchfield customer from Pinellas Park, FL on 12/13/2018

2010 Ford F-150 XLT
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced 4 stock speakers with the Polk DB 572 in a F150. Still using stock HU but the sound is so much improved. I have just purchased (from Crutchfield) a 4ch amp to make the sound even better since they only get about 15w now and going up to 60w RMS. Which is what they are rated for. The Mids and Highs are good the low end will be limited of course due to size. I will install a slim 10in sub to fill out the bass more and the DB's will be sounding better as well after re-tuning. My amp is arriving today, i will try to follow up.

Pros:

Cons:

2015 Nissan Pathfinder

Barr from Miami, FL on 6/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I know these are not listed as compatible for the front doors for the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder but, I modified the opening in the Scosche SA69 adapter to accommodate the DB572 speakers. Once mounted on the modified adapters they fit right into the front door openings with no clearance issues. I am glad that I made the effort to make the installation work because the great sound is my reward. I would go through this process and order these speakers again. I know have the Polk DB572 speakers in the front doors and the Polk DB652 speakers in the rear doors. The sound is great.

Pros: Great sound quality in the mids and highs Good bass response that gets better as the speakers break in Excellent Quality construction and materials

Cons: I haven't found any.

I drive a 2000 Expedition and replaced the stock 5x7 s with an entry level set of Pioneers and was less than happy. After a little research, I opted for these Polks and couldn't be happier. They sound fantastic.

Carlos from Escondido, CA on 5/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You can't go wrong with these speakers. It truly makes the music come to life. With its crystal clear highs you hear all the instruments you were meant to hear. A bonus with these speakers is the fact that you can expand your sound with an amplifier to it. If your looking for clarity these are the ones for you. Add an amplifier to bring out the bass. These speakers are connected to a Sony MEX-GS820. Which really complements the system

Pros: Crystal Clear HIghs. Great mid sound Great Bass for there size. Highly recommend

Cons: No CONS

Crutchfield customer from Cambridge, VT on 5/4/2018

2011 Ford Crown Victoria
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy installation with the instruction sheets tailored to your specific vehicle! Crutchfield made it easy to find the right size speakers too. Great fit with no modifications. The sound is great and was surprised by the bass produced by these speakers. I had a 2009 Alpine Head Unit that had never been used or previously installed. Being that my car is a 2011 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor, I never heard the front speakers as they were disconnected from the wiring harness for use with the police radio. Once I figured out the wiring, reconnected the front speakers, installed the head unit, and turned it on, I almost cried. It worked the first time and sounded better than I expected. I spend a lot of time in my car traveling to and from work and extensive trips. Crutchfield help me create my very own oasis! Overall I am happy with my purchase and would highly recommend Polk Audio speakers as an upgrade to your factory speakers.

Scott from Superior, WI on 4/29/2018

2001 Lincoln Continental
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Remarkable clarity , resounding bass. A night and day difference in my 2001 Lincoln Continental. I replaced 4 factory speakers in the doors. I went with a Boss lower cost head unit with Nav and am quite surprised how good it sounds! Added a powered subwoofer in the trunk. You need these speakers.

Pros: Clarity is the most notable thing. I can only judge from the previous junk factory ones ( non0Alpine setup) . Can really handle lowish power at 40watts/channel well. Its also nice the are marine rated so I am not concerned with indoor install.

Cons: Can't speak for installation as I paid to have it done, they said perfect fit.

Crutchfield customer from Mechanicsville, MD on 4/26/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product for the money. Nice high levels but really lacks in mid and lows. I expected a little lack but not that much. I am pushing them with a stock head unit so I understand a little lack in power. But I saw very little difference between stock and Polk replacements.

Speakers used as replacement for 4 oem Ford 6X8 duo-cone speakers in a motorhome. The dynamics of the Polks far exceed the Fords, with additionally extended bass response and smooth midrange and highs. Highly recommend these as replacements for stock, at a very reasonable price.

Pros: great fidelity, power handling, low price

Forest from Wichita, KS on 3/15/2018

2002 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these as a gift for my brother in law. I installed them. He drives an 02 mustang GT. It does not have the mach stereo system in it. They sound great. They do good on both highs and midrange. The bass was good. One factor the bass was good is the design of the door. Before I put them in the door I tested them and the bass wasn't there but in the Mustang there are some spacers that the speakers fit into. once I set them in there the bass came began to fill nicely. My brother in-law loves them. Texts me about how good they sound. Eventually I am going to buy another pair for the rear. Very pleased with these speakers.

Pros: Ease of install. They fit in the factory speaker slot. No other holes needed to be drilled. No brackets need to be added. Sound great. Brother in-law is ecstatic.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are a significant upgrade from the factory speakers in my 2012 F150. Bass is deep and clear with no noticeable distortion. Midrange and treble are crisp. Even with the factory head unit they excel and are ear-splitting loud. Easy to install with the provided instructions.

Pros: Way better than the factory speakers

Cons: None

Honest Review

Justin from Oklahoma City, OK on 12/12/2017

2006 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these to replace the tired OEM drivers in my 2006 F-150. These are better than stock. This especially evident when you compare them side by side simply from a build/materials stand point. Sound wise, they do offer much better highs and less distortion, but they do lack in bass presence for my personal taste. I do not currently run these alongside a subwoofer, and the bass falls a little short. All this said, I did get a discount at my time of purchase, making these extremely affordable, and a great value for the price. I would be disappointed if I had paid full price. These are driven by an Alpine CDA-9813 Head unit which outputs 27x4 RMS and 60x4 Peak.

Pros: Clear Highs Less distortion than OEM Great Price (discounted for Xmas)

Cons: Terminal connection plate could be stiffer. Bass response is less than expected.

these speakers replaced the stock speakers that blew out a few years ago from the massive power from the stock head unit... HA HA what a difference, I hear things I never heard with the old blown stockers, plus, they ROCK!!!

Pros: built tough good price easy install with adapter pigtails

Cons: sounds so good I can tell limitations of stock deck... hummm, might need to upgrade stock head unit too.!

Chris from Steele, AL on 12/5/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers for the rear position in my extended cab F250SD. Having owned a similar set of Polk speakers in the past, I expected a balanced speaker with significant bass response (for its size). These did not disappoint, despite being powered off the head unit alone (18w/channel RMS). I paired these with a set of Infinity Reference speakers in the front position, also powered only off of the Kenwood head unit. This combination balances well, as the Polk speaker have a deeper response (35Hz) while the Infinity speaker produces crisper, brighter high frequency reproduction. And to everyone at Crutchfield, thanks for all of your support before, during, and after my purchase!

Pros: Value Efficiency Clarity Bass response

Cons:

2008 Ford F-150
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed two pairs in the factory locations of my 2008 F150. I am running a Pioneer head unit which seems to do an excellent job powering the speakers. The sound upgrade in my truck beat all of my expectations. Good clean tight bass and excellent highs. I listen to mostly classic rock and a lot of Blues Rock. Crutchfield made it easy with the instruction PDF and the wiring harness connectors - it took me longer to gather my tools for the job than the actual install. In total it was less than one hour for all four speakers. The only modification I had to make was to bend two metal tabs on the end of the speakers to fit in the front doors. I did that with my hands, no big deal.

Pros: Easy install Sound great Perfect fit

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Swapped a set of these into the front doors of my 02 F250 Supercab. Immediately sounded better than the 15 year old speakers that were in there. Installing these with the crutchfield harness and instructions was super easy. From opening the speaker box to having the job done for 2 doors was about a half hour for me. These would be great with an amp but are fine with the stock head unit.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great set of speakers. I can definitely tell the difference from stock. Needs an amp to let them shine. Solder on speaker connector makes for a very tight fit when connecting the speaker wire female connector.

Pros: Nice highs. Adequate bass for my taste.

Cons: Speaker wire solder on the connector gets in the way when connecting the female speaker connector. Needs an amp to really experience their quality. Otherwise they'll only seem like a slight upgrade.

Big AL from Dover, NH on 10/20/2017

2007 Ford Fusion

Kudos to Crutchfield for the recommendation on these. I have these in my 2007 Ford Fusion, front and rear doors. Replaced the factory Ford audiophile system speakers. I just by-passed the front tweeters. All I can say is "WOW". They are amazing. Even powered with just a Kenwood DBX23BT pushing 22x4 RMS, they sound great. Clarity is amazing and bass is much more than stock. I am still running factory 6x9's powered subs in the rear deck, so they help round out the sound. Now, waiting for the Alpine amp to really give them some power !! Should be mind blowing. Did end up purchasing at another site for much cheaper - but it was a great recommend from the Crutchfield Team.

Pros: Clarity and precision Decent bass

Cons: None

Brian from Efland, NC on 9/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers. Installed in a Ford E series van, front and rear doors. Speakers are powered by the Pioneer double DIN head unit rated around 10-15 watts RMS per channel and sound great. The highs are much more detailed now and have a crisp sound. The low and mids are also more accurate. The only thing that could make things sounds even better would be to have a 50 to 75 watt RMS amp between the head unit and the speakers. Cant go wrong with Polk DB speakers.

Pros: Excellent sensitivity(Db), great sounding highs as well as low to mid range performance. Marine certified. even at fairly low watts being supplied and high volumes the sound isn't distorted.

Cons: Magic wand has gone missing. Had to buy them.

For what they are, they exceeded expectations. If you are expecting booming bass from 5x7 speakers, just get real. Go buy a sub. If however a group of religious fanatics ripped the speakers out of a brand new car because evidently the radio is the devil, and then your son buys the car used knowing speakers are missing, these speakers will do quite well and sound nice :) However, if you are ever in a situation to buy such a car watch out for EPOXY IN THE RADIO CONNECTORS AND THE WIRING HARNESS CUT OFF!!! After parts of 4 days working on it during my vacation, we found all the problems and repaired/replaced what was needed. Speakers work great. My advice...just say no if the speakers are missing lol.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed with factory Sony system in F150. Replaced front and rear door speakers and so far very pleased. I didn't disconnect the a-pillar tweeters or the center dash speaker but it doesn't seem to have a negative effect. Good overall sound and louder than the stock Sony's (I tested with an SPL meter before and after). Would like a little more bass but that's really the fault of the lousy factory sub and the "tuning" that Sony does with the EQ settings. Speakers definitely sounds better with higher quality source material (iPhone or CD vs low res satellite radio). I imagine these speakers would sound awesome with an amp and real sub. I strongly recommend the speakers and Crutchfield support and installation assistance is always top notch.

Pros: Overall sound, efficiency, build quality

Cons: None yet

Did a bunch of shopping around online for replacements to go in my son's 2009 Escape. I had a great result when I used Polk Audio in my 1998 F-150.(they are still working great to this day) These fit perfect in both the front and rear doors, and sound great. Super happy with the amount of resources and detailed information Crutchfield offers the DIY'er for installation. The included "plug and play" wiring harness for each speaker made the installation a breeze!

These are solid speakers and a clear upgrade over the faculty speakers in my Miata.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

In all fairness, I am not using these speakers for full range sound. I am using them for high and mid range only. While I was waiting for my sub to arrive I had the opportunity to depend on them for a short time as the primary speakers for my truck. After some tweeking of the settings on my deck, I was able to get them sounding pretty good. I give them the full 75 watts RMS power that they need and in their role with the sub installed, all I can say is they perform stellar. High's are crisp and mid's give the depth to round out my system. Excellent choice if you are looking for a factory replacement for a 6"x8" or 5"x7" speaker, mine installed easily in my '07 Ford F150 (took less than 45 minutes for all 4). Definitely would recommend these to someone building a 3 way system or even just looking to improve their stock speakers.

These speakers went in easy, and have a great mid and high range. They sound fantastic, and didn't break the bank. These 5x7(s) sound so much better than the factory 6x8(s). As always, Crutchfield provided everything needed to make the installation go smooth and right the first time. I spend at least 12 hours a week in my car, and the great sound makes the rides a lot shorter.

Pros: Superior sound and great band for your bucks. They play louder than I ever want them to, and sound crisp and clear.

shaun from St. George, Utah on 2/11/2017

2014 Ford Mustang

So I've been reading these reviews and you are all missing something, an AMP! the POLK audio speakers are power hungry, they need wattage to MAKE bass..Without proper power they don't perform like intended..I have experienced this very same situation..Then I put in an AMP and it was a completely different sound..Crisp highs..Perfect midrange..And yes, BASS..LOTS OF IT, CLEAN AND CRISP..So before you go bagging on POLK audio, do your homework, cause when you research and study you will get an "A" in sound quality, ask the Cruthfield guys to hook you up with the proper AMP, satisfaction guaranteed !

Pros: Top quality speakers

Cons: They aren't adding an AMP so you aren't realizing the speakers potential!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced all four OEM door speakers in my Ford F-150 with these Polk Audio DB572's. I am very pleased with the clarity and punch of the Polk's over the stock speakers, especially if you push the volume. They stay clear and true without getting "fizzy" or distorted. The only drawback I have found is that they are not strong on the bottom end, and do not provide much of a bass presence. I do not use a sub-woofer or any power amp other than the stock radio unit. In that configuration, I wish the speakers had a little more defined bass response. Don't get me wrong, they are very nice speakers and a good upgrade. But, robust bass is not their strong suit.

Pros: Clarity Handles volume well Good punch

Cons: Could have better bass response

Sound very good.

Love these speakers! Bought 4 of them to go in my son's F250 super duty super cab...they sound great, especially when paired with the new Sony high powered head unit (40 watts per channel). He was thinking of adding a sub before installing the rest of the system, but now says it sounds great without the sub. Plenty of range for heavy metal listening for a better than factory sound. Definitely worth a few extra bucks for these over a factory grade replacement.

2006 Ford Expedition
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My advisor suggested the DB571 but reviews said the bass was weak so I went with the DB572. The sound is really dependent on the receiver driving them. With the factory receiver the sound was more clear than factory speakers but not a big improvement. I added a Jensen VX4025 headunit and that brought them to life but bass was still kinda weak. Turning loudness button on really kicked up the bass and with more adjustment of the 10-band equalizer I have studio quality sound. In my Expedition a couple of the tabs interfered with the installation so I bent those down. Test-fit before you attach wires.

Pros: Great sound if you have a receiver that can get the most out of them.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

One would think that sound in a sports car wouldn't be that hard since it is such a small space, but these speakers are a great improvement over the 6 factory speakers they replaced. Everything sounds different. Originally I was going for more tweet and less woof although what I got was more tweet and more woof and less midrange over what was in the car. I was missing the top and the bottom and got both or them back with these speakers. Hearing things in the car I hadn't heard before. One level adjustment in either bass or treble is noticeable whereas previously it took several adjustments to make an impact. Installation was very easy and the holes all matched up. The supplied wiring adapters made the installation that much easier.

Pros: Great sound and easy installation. Very responsive with full range of sound.

Cons: With any speaker change it affects the preset modes. In this case the "top down" mode causes sound push from the right side probably due to bigger speakers in the back now. Its not a problem, I just use the "driver's seat" and "all seat" modes. Plenty of sound with top down.

Get your midrange vocals back!

Just upgraded from the Bose factory speakers to the Polk DB572 in the front doors of my 2007 Mazda3 Hatchback, and the difference is night and day. So much more midrange. I'm running two Pioneer Champion series 12" subs off of a 2600 watt Planet Audio amp in the back, and the massive bass was wiping out all vocals at any volume up to level 14. Just swapping these out made all the difference.

Pros: Clear midrange, even when running tons of bass Marine grade - great for doors Sound is crystal clear

Cons:

Excellent choice!!!

Very easy installation, very good sound. Would it be louder with an amplifier. Good sound overall.

Pros:

Cons:

Easy install once you are able to disconnect door panel wire harness.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So much better than those factory speakers. Never thought of replacing my speakers until I came across the idea just browsing the web one day. Just the difference in weight and construction versus factory is clue enough of the improvement I was expecting. The Polk speakers are great. Not only is the music so much better, I can hear the vocals clearly and find myself listening to fm now more than talk radio. I never realized the difference it would make. I wish I had made the change sooner. Difficult part of installation was disconnecting door panel wire harness until I finally found an online video showing one guy using a screwdriver to work the tab. Once I figured that out, all of the harness connectors came off with ease. Crutchfield instructions were most helpful.

Pros: Much better sound than factory, especially the clearer vocals. Adapters provided matched perfectly with system wiring.

Cons: None.

2002 Mazda Miata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers greatly improved the stereo in my Miata. I can hear detail I could not hear with the stock speakers even at highway speed, top down. I am using a JVC head unit I installed a few years ago, but just now decided to improve the speakers. I was also going to install an amplifier, but I'm not sure it is needed now. I hesitated to purchase these because I really wanted a component system. I was worried that not replacing the tweeter in the stock position would hurt the quality of the sound. I wasn't excited about mounting crossovers in the doors; the inside of the doors tend to be wet in the Miata. These speakers are perfect with the original tweeter disconnected.

Pros: Plug and play install for the Miata. Everything fits perfectly.

Cons: The improvement in the sound just encourages me to order more stuff. This can get dangerous!

Fits perfect, luscious Polk sound!

2000 Ford Explorer
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put all 4 of these 572s (new upgrade to the 571s) in my 2000 Explorer. Easy fit to factory mounts without any modification! Instructions and youtube video from Crutchifeld were perfect. Once all 4 were in, the sound was beautiful (as Id expect from Polk). The range on these 572s gets into the lows more than the 571s and they can take more power too. Highs mids and lows are very dynamic even with the factory stereo, although I can tell they arent even close to hitting their potential, so im getting a Kenwood deck and probably an amp. Will not disappoint!

Pros: Sound quality Build quality is superb Easy install Perfect fit

Cons: None so far!

Product Research

Features

Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least amount of resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.

5x7/6x8 Speaker: This speaker can be used in both 5x7 and 6x8 applications. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

Marine Certification: Polk speakers are marine certified, making them a good choice for boats in fresh water, convertibles, motorcycles, ATVs, and other applications where the speaker might get wet. Because they have coated steel baskets and the terminals and crossover components are not covered, we do not recommend using them in salt water environments.

Why did you buy this?

New version of the DB571s, has wider frequency response. [ Christine  Jun 02, 2016 ]

6 questions already asked

Its been a while, but I don't recall installing a cover, I just used the car panels, so I don't remember getting grill covers. [ Franklin  Jan 28, 2018 ]
Yes, they come with a grill/cover. [ Richard  Jan 25, 2018 ]
To the best of my recollection, they did not come with a grill. [ David  Jan 25, 2018 ]
Forty-five watts(head unit + head unit power pack) is what have powering four of these in an SUV and it does the job well. It goes louder than I should play it while still sounding good. Even more power will most likely make the system sound even better but I was installing it myself and liked the plug and play of the power pack vs big amp and running wires. [ Stephen  Dec 18, 2017 ]
Yes ! [ Randy  Dec 18, 2017 ]
I doubt it. These do not seem especially bass-y to me, but then again I don't have an amp, and without some power it is difficult to say what the speakers could do. [ Richard  Dec 21, 2017 ]
PS -If you do option 1) you need passive sub and enclosure, unless you buy a packaged deal. If you do option 2) or 3), you don't need a dual voice coil sub as amplifiers typically have summing networks built in. Option 2 is best for your buck in my mind. Good luck! [ MICHAEL  May 21, 2017 ]
Well yes and no. The mounting bracket supplied by Ford in my particular situation was/is poorly designed as it lets air 'around' the rear of the speaker interfere with front and vice versa. Also the factory speakers have no highs, and the absence of highs could be mistaken for bass. I wasn't happy with the bass from any speaker so I added an 8" powered Bazooka, and hi passed the 5x7's with the Pioneer deck active crossover at 100 hertz. I really could not tell any difference in the bass response below 80-90. In other words the didn't have usable bass below that freq. hope that helps and not too confusing! [ MICHAEL  May 18, 2017 ]
I enjoy my Polk Audio speakers. I'm never disappointed. [ Surami  May 18, 2017 ]
I replaced the factory Bose speakers with Infinitys - which went bad after 2 years - i then switched to the Polks and have been very pleased good highs and nice bass - I even disconnected the factory Bose "subwoofer " if you can call it that [ HERBERT  May 18, 2017 ]
