If you're building your new system on a budget, Polk Audio's DB+ Series 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

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.

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 ]

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

Q
are these light weight?
[ Gwen  Feb 16, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
They weigh as much as a standard speaker. I would not call them "light weight".
[ Ian  Feb 17, 2018 ]
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.
[ David  Jul 28, 2017 ]
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 ]
3 answers
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.
