Honed Polk perfection

These DB522 3-way speakers feature a 6"x9" 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. Two silk dome tweeters deliver smooth highs with precision to give you a vibrant soundstage, while a built-in crossover keeps the highs and lows flowing to the proper drivers.

Handles up to 150 watts RMS

With power handling up to 150 watts RMS, you'll do fine driving this system with an aftermarket receiver, but these speakers will love life if you power them with a nice amp.

For custom installation

Polk includes mounting hardware, along with boldly designed grilles that add flare to your vehicle's interior if you're doing a custom installation.

Huge upgrade to already "premium sound system in newer truck"

Crutchfield customer from Lynchburg, OH on 8/7/2019

2018 Ford F-150 King Ranch

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Replaced my premium sound system in 2018 f150, let's just say what a car company considers premium sound, and just replacing the front door speakers with these show a huge difference giving more of a premium sound. They are amped but not nearly as much wattage going to them that they can handle, and already night and day. Glad I bought these, can't wait to get better amp to push them more. Replaced the front with these and back with the 6.5" polk audio DBs. Next is sub and tweeters and fully re amp everything and will be set. Even with low wattage amp pushing them still very satisfied.

Pros: Ease of install, plus night and day difference in sound compared to my factory "premium sound"

Cons: None so far besides not having more watts going to them. Not speaker or company's fault. Just waiting to get all other speakers and maps before doing complete overhaul and amp everything accordingly

Chosen for under eaves on outside porch, they sound good for the price. The real test is whether they will last as the weather challenges them. They are listed as marine grade, so I expect them to last. Should they fail. I'll revise this review. The date of this posting is May of 2019.

Use These With an Amp for Some Thump!

Bret from Hinesville, GA on 5/9/2019

2018 Ford F-150 XLT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers are great. I have them installed in a 2018 F150 crew cab, at first with the factory stereo, and now with a new head unit and amp. I will say I didn't notice a huge difference in sound from the factory speakers with the factory head unit, just slightly better. Where these speakers really shine is with an amplifier. Using a Alpine 50watt x4 amp, these babies really thump! The bass is excellent but I didn't hardly notice it until the amp and new Pioneer head unit was installed that has a 13 band equalizer. Using these speakers without an amplifier does not do these speakers justice. Huge improvement! They even with a "Polk Audio" badge to put on your speaker grill or door panel. Great stuff.

Pros: Great sound quality, excellent bass, mids, and highs! Polk Audio badge for your door panel. The bracket that came with the speakers fit the factory perfectly and was able to re-use the factory screws and holes without any driling!

Cons: These speakers will make your factory stereo sound a bit better but you really need an amplifier to get the most out of these speakers, at least a 50 watts per channel amp.

Upgraded the speakers in my 2016 Outback. What a huge difference. The highs and mids are fantastic, and the bass can kick! Still using the stock HU, so I'm sure the bass gets even better with the addition of an amp, but it is a night and day difference from the stock speakers!

Why didn't I upgrade to these years ago?

Brian from Concord, MA on 2/9/2019

2016 Subaru Outback

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Huge improvement over the weak stock front door speakers in a 2016 Outback - like night and day. Crisp highs and good solid bass, all for a great price. Crutchfield instructions were clear but a bit sparse for my vehicle. Luckily, there was a YouTube video showing how to remove the front door panel of an Outback that fleshed out the Crutchfield instructions by pointing out a number of things to watch out for during installation. Whole process took me about 45 minutes, and I couldn't be happier with the improvement.

Pros: Crisp highs, clear midrange, excellent bass for my tastes, and easy to install, too. Great price.

Cons: None

Matched Polk Audio DB 692 & 652's rock!

Henry from Greenfield, IN on 9/26/2018

2015 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed pair of Polk Audio DB 692 & pair of DB 652's in 2015 Dodge Ram crew cab, they sound great with the base factory receiver (5" lcd, no Alpine). The built-in factory receiver's equalizer and balance/fade work great with the Polk's, I hear notes and lyrics now, not noticed before with factory speakers! I would buy this matched set again for the 692 bass/mid and the 652 mid/hi's! The install was easier with the Crutchfield instructions, took about 2 hours. Definitely would buy Polk via Crutchfield next opportunity!

Pros: Balanced pair, laser design proved true! Easy install w/ Crutchfield instructions & accessory parts including harness & mount faceplate.

Cons: Buy the DB 692 & 652's as matched set, not one or the other to get the bass, mid & highs!

Poor Sound

Paul from Beckley, WV on 8/17/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Not as expected. Distorts very easily. Hooked to a brand Pioneer Bluetooth radio. Very little volume distortion so bad not worth listening to.

Pros: They are built nice

Cons: To much distortion at low volume with bass turned up.

Crutchfield response on 9/5/2018
One of our tech support gurus, Clint, reached out to this reviewer to help out. He stated that many aftermarket speakers, like these Polks, often require more power to be effective, even at low volumes. Aftermarket car stereos often don't have the power output to do aftermarket speakers justice. Distortion can often be mistaken for a speaker problem, but sometimes it's an amplifier problem. Hopefully we'll be able to help step up this customer's power with an amp or set up a return for the speakers.

I purchased these speakers for my 2017 Ram 1500 and what difference in the sound quality from the crappy stock speakers. These speakers deliver the bass I was looking for from my stock radio on my Ram 1500. The spacers that come in the kit give the clearance needed to make installation a breeze. I might add an amp to get more out of the speakers, but it is not necessary, just my personal preference. Great speaker for the price.

Pros: Great sound, ease of installation, and price

After reading many reviews I felt that this would be a decent upgrade in my 2016 impala limited but wow! These things are great all around. They handle all ranges really well. The bass is clean and can be adjusted to be loud enough to shake my mirror. I'm not crazy about keeping it there but full range is important to me. Marine grade audio never disappoints me. It's built solid and sounds great with an added bonus of if hail ever breaks out my back glass and floods my rear deck, I'm confident these guys will be just fine with the factory guards. My aftermarket headunit handles these no problem without the need for an amp. They come with cool little adhesive emblems too!

Pros: Killer sound quality Great build quality Marine grade Nice lows Good sensitivity for a non-amp setup Really happy with my purchase

Cons: None yet. I guess I always would have been happy to pay less but the price was solid for the quality of these things

I replaced the factory front door speakers in my 2018 F-150 XLT with these. What a HUGE improvement. The truck still needs a subwoofer, but the overall improvement in clarity and tone make this a "must" upgrade from any factory base speaker. These speakers handle the low wattage of the factory Sync 3 unitquite well and play clearly and loudly with no additional amplification.

Pros: Midrange clarity, great treble, clean bass

Cons: none

Polk audio knows how to please with the DB 692. Warm, clean sounding vocals. The tweeters are not overly bright like on some, solid mids, and generous lows; make these a great speaker for any music genre I've thrown at them.

Pros: Virtually everything.

Very well built and can take power.

2016 Dodge Charger

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Looking for something that has a good price point and can handle tons of power look no further. Had plenty of other brands out there in the past but after doing a couple of weeks worth of research and looking at reviews this is the speaker I decided I wanted to pick up. There not as bright as say the hertz but when running tons of power to hertz or any other bright mid range speakers makes tweets easy to blow in my past experience. You looking for something loud and and able to handle power look no more this is the speaker to get for such a good price.

Pros: High power handling RMS wise. Built for all types of weather. Good deal compared to other brands out there with same power rating. Very loud with right amp. Price for what you get.

Cons: Highs aren't as bright compared to a aluminum dome tweeters. (If you like that.) Would have liked to have a rubber seal on the back of the basket.

These speakers replaced the stock Ford speakers in my 2017 Ford Super Duty F-250. The Polks really woke up the sound. I finally have some mid-range, and vocals are now clear instead of muddy and muffled. This is on what Ford considers it's "Sony Premium" system. The equalizer settings had to be changed from almost maximizing mid-range and highs, to almost no additional enhancement. Wow, the music is crystal clear now, and I highly recommend these speakers. For the price on the stock amplifier, I don't think these, with the DB652s for the rear, is a combination that can't be beat.

I called Crutchfield to discuss an upgrade to my audio system for my modified Jeep. I spoke to Stone and after our discussion he recommended the 6x9 Polk Audio DB692 marine grade speakers. I purchased the speakers and a compact Kenwood marine grade amplifier, which arrived in short order. I installed the speakers' into a pair of VDP speaker boxes behind the front seats. After the easy install, I found the Polk speakers' and Kenwood amp to be great additions to my Sony MEX-N5200BT dash stereo. Again, Crutchfield came through with a variety of quality products, but more importantly great customer service.

Wow! What a dramatic improvement over the stock speakers!! Crutchfield always does a fine job with helping their customers which included an easy hook up pig tail for the wiring and Polk had a spacer necessary for mounting clearance. Clear and easy to follow instructions were also provided. Start to finish, I completed one door in 11 minutes. The low end on these speakers is INCREDIBLE! Just using the stock unit, but may, at Lane's recommendation, add an amp later to REALLY rock!!

Pros: Excellent sound quality, very clear, great low end, easy to install

Cons: None

Not a fan - don't recommend for Ram 1500 w/stock radio

Kevin from Jeffersonville, IN on 11/22/2017

2017 Ram 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Purchased these speakers to replace the rear factory stock speakers in my 2017 Ram 1500 Big Horn pickup. There were the recommendation of a Crutchfield agent. For my application, I'm not impressed. My guess is if you had a high powered stereo system, these would be fine, but the stock stereo in my Ram 1500 just can't power these to the point that they sound good. Granted, they sound better than the stock speakers, but not to the point that I feel it was worth the price and hassle of replacing them. And since it's a bit of a drag to remove the door panels and exchange them, I'll probably keep these in place. Wondering if I should have gone with the Kicker 6X9 speakers, which were highly rated as replacements in a Ram 1500. Guess that's what I get for not doing my own research first. Buyer use caution - Before you go using these speakers with a stock stereo (like I did), I would advise you to do some research and look at the power rating of your stereo along with the RMS rating of the speakers you are looking to use. Unless I can find a way to easy and inexpensive way to increase the power in my factory speaker, I'll continue to not be excited about these speakers.

Pros: Weatherproof - Good for door installation.

Cons: Guess they need higher-than-stock power to sound really good.

I'm not as impressed with these speakers as I am with the Polk component set I have in the front. Still, they sound good and are worth it if you don't want to run the separate tweeters. might be underpowered too. I'm pushing with 75 watts per channel rms & was just hoping for a little more out of theses. They're rated at 150 rms.

Michael from IA on 6/16/2017

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these as a replacement for my Polk DB691s that I already loved.. LOUD first came to mind. I have them hooked up to a BOSS 1200 watt 4 channel amp along with a pair of 12 inch subs behind the seat of a regular cab pickup and the combo is incredible. One thing I noticed is compared to the DB691s is that they don't sound quite as crisp and healthy but still very good and much louder. Maybe with some tuning and testing I can work that issue out.

Pros: Much louder than previous Polk speakers which were already great, would definitely recommend.

Cons: Not quite as crisp and clean... Still good sound.

Great upgrade from OEM, no amp necessary

Michael from NC on 4/30/2017

2005 Honda Accord LX

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These rock! They're about twice as large and three times as heavy as the OEM speakers they replaced in my 2005 Accord's rear deck. Installation was simple, took 20 minutes. Seriously just a drop in like advertised by Crutchfield. Only issue is that the bass is so strong compared to the OEM speakers that the speaker cover and other parts back in the rear deck can rattle a bit. Not a problem with the speakers themselves, just problems of an old car, so 5 stars! Bought the DB 652 6.5" speakers for the front but haven't installed them yet. These are powered by a Pioneer aftermarket radio, so a bit more power compared to factory, but I bet they'd sound even more incredible with an amp.

Pros: Clear highs and meds, great bass for someone not wanting obnoxious sounding subs.

Cons: Feel like I'm missing out on even higher quality without investing in an amp, but they still sound great!

These are natural sounding speakers with tight bass and a normal (non-screechy sounding) high end. Replaced factory speakers, and these are of course much better, and don't have the boxy sound of the OEM model. These Polks really seem to come alive at higher volumes. I wish the bass were a little deeper, but I suppose that's a function of physics, a 6x9 can only move so much air regardless of brand.

Pros: Tight bass, natural sounding high end.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This review is about the fit of the speakers in my vehicle. I chose 5 stars to maintain the average rating for the speakers since the fit isn't a defect in the speaker. These speakers barely fit in the front door speakers of my 2007 Dodge Ram 3500. The shape of the speaker's frame is almost too wide for the opening in the door. There is a plastic spacer/bracket on the factory speakers that can be reused to take up the space, but it doesn't produce a really tight fit.

Pros: -Sounds great

Cons: -Not a perfect fit for my vehicle

These speakers have excellent range and and can handle per and play distortion free at high volume.If you buy these you really should buy an amp if you want to do them justice !! First Polk speakers I ever owned but I will be looking at the Polk brand slot more now

Installed the polk speakers into two enclosed speaker boxes. Overall they sound great. Pretty loud and clear. I was hoping to turn it up slightly, one more notch but really how much can one depend on getting out of only a pair of 6x9s? With a crossover and tuned I bet it would be perfect, but this install was for a boat and is just a simple head unit and amplifier.

Pros: Crisp sound and pretty loud for a 6x9. Good frequency range.

Cons: If you turn it up too much it there seems to be a threshold and the sound is then distorted, but as long as it's not that turned up too loud there great.

Pros: They FIT (zero protrusion tweeters) They sound sweet ... nice rich bass, not thump-n-bump.

Cons: none whatsoever.

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.

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.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
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 ]

If I use spacers, will these fit in the front doors of a 2013 Ram 1500 quad cab?

I put these in a 2014 crew cab and they fit great. I'm not sure how close the design is, but I would think that they should.

Q
are these light weight?

They weigh as much as a standard speaker. I would not call them "light weight".

Q
I am looking to install these on my Harley for the top of the saddle bags. I need to know if these are sealed for water so as long as I seal the speaker properly to the saddle bag, it shouldn't let any water throuhg? By the pics it looks as though the woofer is sealed to the tweeter but i need to be sure. looking at the marine grade Polk DB 692

I have these on my Victory XC bag lids. Been caught in the rain a couple times, as well as a serious washing with the hose. I get some water inside, just a trickle or so, but enough to get my spare rags wet, and ruined any papers in the bag. Not sure if it's the speaker itself, or the hole for the speaker (in the bag lid), going to be putting some RTV on the flange/frame of the speaker to seal the edges onto the bag lid for next year. I would highly recommend these speakers though, have them pushed by an Alpine hd149bt thru a JL Audio hx280/4. Also 2 Polk 5.25s in fairing (forget the model # exactly). You can hear everything clear as can be (after tuning everything) and you can hear me from about 2 blocks away if I want!

Q
can I run these speakers on a 2 ohm load to get more out of my Sound Ordnance M-4050 amp?
[ Scooby Snacks  Jul 25, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
I think it's more a function of whether the amp can operate properly with a 2 ohm load. That's a difficult task for many amplifiers, especially inexpensive ones.

Q
I'm installing these in my boat. Will a 400 watt 2 channel Pyle amp be enough to push them?
[ Chad  Apr 20, 2017 ]

A
Yes, easily.
[ David  Jul 28, 2017 ]
A
They should sound amazing with that amp
[ Umberto  Apr 21, 2017 ]
A
Should be plenty, and will likely allow you to keep the gain on the amp low enough to totally avoid clipping. FULL volume could be too much, be careful. FWIW, don't expect outrageous bass from 6x9s (any of them). These are good, but a sub is a sub. I had an Infinity BassLink a while back and think it would be a good match. Not "thumpy", but solid and rich.
