Stellar components

Polk Audio's DB+ Series component speakers are a dynamite value as well as being stellar performers. Their journey to excellence begins with a laser-imaged design that ensures minimal distortion, a smooth response, and incredible sonic detail. 

Honed Polk perfection

This DB6502 component speaker system features a 6-1/2" polypropylene woofer cone with a strong rubber surround for solid playback and resilience under the environmental stress that comes with living in your car doors. The separate 3/4" silk dome tweeter delivers smooth highs with precision to give you a vibrant soundstage, and the included external crossover network keeps the highs and lows flowing to the proper drivers for seamless performance. 

Handles up to 100 watts RMS

With power handling up to 100 watts RMS, you'll do fine driving this system with an aftermarket receiver, but these speakers will be loving life if you power them with a nice amp.

For custom installation

Polk includes mounting hardware for the tweeters, along with boldly designed grilles for the woofers that'll add a little flare to your vehicle's interior.

Note: Polk includes brackets to fit a 6-3/4" opening.

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.

Woofer Mounting: The woofer baskets have multiple mounting holes and are designed to fit standard 3-hole 6-1/2, Ford's 4-hole 6-1/2, and 6-3/4 applications. (A speaker baffle should be used to seal the inner ring of screw holes in 6-3/4 installations.) The included adapter brackets can be used to fit many specialized factory speaker applications. The brackets are also useful as a spacer in shallow locations; the brackets add 0.232" to the woofers' mounting height and subtract 0.232" from the mounting depth. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

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

Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.314" 0.884"
Mounting Depth 0.731" screw depth
Cutout Diameter 1.780" N/A
Frame Diameter 2.135" 1.75"

Crossover: The outboard crossovers have screw terminal inputs and outputs (0.3" wide). A jumper inside each crossover allows you to adjust the tweeter output level; choose 0 dB, +3 dB, or +6 dB. There are two screw holes in the base of each crossover for mounting.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 2.6"
  • Height: 1.2"
  • Depth: 4.73"

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, the terminals are not covered, and the crossovers are not sealed, we do not recommend using them in salt water environments.

Birthday purchase for my husband and his S2000. Speakers were recommended on a S2000 forum and then Crutchfield verified that they would fit.

Has the best Sensitivity in its price category. [ Martin  Dec 18, 2017 ]
A
I chose the polk audio db6502 because they are rated to perform well with a factory head unit or with higher wattage as well. also, because they are rated well in regards to frequency response (down to 35 hertz) and I expect this will improve their output in the low end (I want a subwoofer, but these mids and highs are going into a work vehicle and I don't think there will ever be room for it). [ D  Dec 04, 2017 ]

It had great ratings and was a perfect fit for my husband's Jeep. [ Marlena  Dec 01, 2017 ]

I have Polk, Infinity, Klipsch, Martin Logan Electrostats and Emotiva out door speakers incorporated into a whole house audio system I built. the Polks are not the best speakers in my system but are the best bang for the buck. I have a set of inexpensive in ceilings in the kitchen and a set of M70s (i think that is the model)in my shop. excellent speakers for the price. [ george  Nov 19, 2017 ]

I have a 1996 Chrysler Sebring LXI Coupe. In my younger years I had (18 speakers, 5 amps, elec crossover, sound processor, truck alternator, isolator, 2 batteries and a 51 disc CD Player (voice controlled) in this car. I was ALL IN!!! But now that I'm much older I'm trying desperately to hold on to what little hearing I have left. I now have 1 amp, 3-ways in the deck and components in the front. The components went out several years ago, but somehow it just wasn't important to me anymore. [ Willie  Aug 13, 2017 ]

A
My choice of the these speakers was a combination of price, a name brand that I could trust, Crutchfield's help in determining that these speakers will fit in my car, and the speaker specs that Crutchfield made available. [ Ronald  Jun 24, 2017 ]

I run a Pioneer amp that throws out 100 watts rms at 4ohm. These speakers match that perfectly and they are more equalizer friendly since they sound more flat than most other speaker which tend to push on you Highs, mids or lows too much, therefore allowing you to tailor the sound more efficiently on any genre. Plus, you get legendary Polk Audio quality here which you can spot on has soon has you open de box! You can't go wrong with proven aftermarket audio! [ Alex  Apr 26, 2017 ]

Used to have Polk Momo 6.5" components in Nissan Altima in 2001-2002. Fabulous sound, would be similar to Polk MM6501 today. Current system has less power. These components are efficient enough they should sound very good with stock head unit in my 2007 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab (New Body Style). Then they will sound GREAT with the Kenwood DDX6902S head unit as the next upgrade, and then they will sound FABULOUS with a 5-channel amp feeding them 70 - 100W per channel!!!

When the JBLs disappointed, Polk came right to mind. These have outstanding low freq response, and with the new design (zero tweeter protrusion), they should work in my doors. [ Karl  Jun 03, 2016 ]

How long are the wires attached to the tweeters?

A
I did that car with those a year ago I have forgotten how long for sure but I can tell you if the Tweeter is going to be over 24 in away from the mid-range. You might have to extend them
[ Steve  Oct 17, 2018 ]
Q
Will the supplied crossover filter out the signal below 85 hz or should I set the high pass filter on my amp to 85 hz?
[ RockOn  Jul 03, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
In this case you would set your amplifier's high-pass filter at 85 Hz. The included 2-way crossover designed to take the signal from your amp/head unit and separate the highs out to the tweeters, and lows to the woofers. Polk doesn't specify the crossover point for the DB 6502 speakers; but it's typically in the 3.5kHz-5kHz range for 6-1/2" component speakers. For more details or to discuss further please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Hope that helps! :)

Are these crossovers Active or Passive? Did not see anything specific in the details. Thank you.
[ Mikey  Apr 16, 2018 ]

The crossovers are passive as they do not require their own power supply, getting what power they require from the speaker wires.

Q
Which wire on the tweeter is positive?The tweeter has two black wires, one with white strip on large spade. I know the large spade on the woofer is positve, but it connects to gray wire with no strip. In other words the tweeter wiring is not consistant: gray with stripe = lagre spade, tweeter black with strip = small spade??

Man, call Crutchfield! Its been over a year since i installed all that stuff, cant remember which wire went where. There is a polarity test you can do with a battery though- im sure there must be a video on youtube. Good luck, and CALL CRUTCHFIELD- that's what they are there for!!!

Can you run these without the supplied crossover?
[ Randy  Mar 08, 2018 ]

I'm sure you could but the sound/quality you just paid for will be gone. The crossover tells each speaker what sounds to play with out it your tweets will try and play bass which will ruin them.

When available, the ETA is provided on the product's main webpage. As of this posting, the estimated time of arrival for our next shipment is 1/22/18. If you place a backorder for them now, you can be sure to get them from our next delivery and you will also lock-in the current sale pricing. We will not charge you for the speakers until they ship so, placing the backorder for them now won't cost you anything. I hope that helps. My bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/bio/Ryan

Q
I don't know if this applies to full range and component speakers, but reading one of Crutchfield's educational articles about subwoofers (top rms) powered by 75% to 150% amps rms for matching performance. I'm wondering if I can power the Polk Audio DB6502 with a JL Audio Slash 300/2, witch puts out 150 rms x 2 of power?
[ G  Nov 11, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
It's always a good idea to match the RMS power handling of the speaker to the RMS output of the amp. If you "baby" the speakers with an amp rated at more RMS power you'll probably be ok but these speakers are very efficient and will not need more power than called for. My advice....get a 100 watt amp and you can't go wrong.
[ James  Nov 13, 2017 ]
Q
Would these be overpowered by a bridged 5 channel pioneer gd9605 2x150 rms 4 ohms?
[ Marcos  Sep 25, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Yes if the amp you list is rated at 150 watts rms per channel. The db6502's are rated to handle 100 watts rms so any bridging will only increase the power to the speakers. It's always best to match a speakers rated rms power handling to the amps rms power output with the impedance (ohms) the same.

Q
with this package do i need to buy extra speaker wire or will the wire included be enough to run throughout the car?
[ noah  Mar 28, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. This will depend on your vehicle. If you are connecting to the factory wiring at the speaker location then there should be plenty of wire included. If you are running completely new wire all the way to the head unit then additional wire may be required. If you have additional questions I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They should be able to help answer your question.

This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation.
[ Kenny  Mar 20, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
If the tweeter is 4 ohms and the woofer is also 4 ohms, when you hook them up to the crossover and then power them with an amplifier will the load that the amplifier sees then be 2 ohms?
[ Tim  Feb 12, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
The Polk Audio DB6502 component speakers will still present a 4-ohm load to your amplifier. The tweeters and woofers are connected individually to the crossovers, (which filters high frequencies to the tweeters and mids/lows to the woofers) so the impedance shown to your amp remains 4-ohm. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
[ Larry  Feb 23, 2017 ]  Staff

It's my understanding of audio systems that the speakers in the system are the load, and therefore will be the 4 ohms listed by polk. An amp set up to handle a 2 ohm load (speaker) will do fine with a 4 ohm speaker as the current draw will be lower.

Q
The included tweeter mounts, both flush or surface versions, are extremely hard to get the tweeter into. It is basically a one-time press fit (and do not press on the tweeter grill!). It appears to me that once pressed in either mount, you'd then have to damage either the tweeter or the mounting surface in order to remove them. Am I missing something, or is this what others have used these mounts experienced as well?

I've had to take my tweeters out since installing them and although it required finesse, I did it without any damage to driver or mount. I used a long thin screwdriver and pushed it out from the back side VERY CAREFULLY.

Yes, that is what we found. That is, the tweeters will be damaged if they have to be removed.

I have the DB6502s in my rear doors (with the tweeters in the front), and a pair of DB 692s in the front. The receiver is a Sony MEX-XB100BT, Class-D, 40wRMS (100wPEAK) x 4. I'm using the receiver's feature that uses the rear speakers kinda like subs to supplement bass from the fronts. It gets loud enough for me, but at 56 I'm not trying to pulsate the doors. At full volume, there is not a trace of distortion unless the bass is turned up to absurd levels. I have little doubt that they would handle 100wRMS as specified, and they would be loud enough for anybody, but some might want more bass and need a separate subwoofer (I once had an Infinity Basslink that was AWESOME, for my musical taste). It all depends on whether your goal is good clean music now and being able to hear when you're 50, or if you want to thump today and say "huh?" all the way through your golden years. You might go to 150wRMS for some additional headroom for bass in the amp, but you'd have to be careful to never turn it up all the way. Remember: When you get distortion, it is most often because the amp is not powerful enough and it is clipping -- NOT because the speakers are distorting. But sure, you can pump the coil straight out of the magnet if you try hard enough. I had first tried some Infinity speakers and was *shockingly* disappointed. These speakers sound VERY good. Highly Recommended.

I'm currently using an Arc Audio KS 300.4, non bridged 90 watts for each channel.

I would go with an amp that delivers at least 75% of the maximum RMS rating or better.

Thanks for your question. You'll find this information on the product page under "Product Highlights". The system handles up to 100 watts RMS (300 watts peak power). Hope that helps.
