Enjoy your music even more
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 DXi6501 component speaker system features 6-1/2" polymer 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.
Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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 creates 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: Each woofer features a Dynamic Balance, Bi-Laminate composite, polypropylene cone woofer. These composite cones feature tremendous stiffness-to mass ratio, resulting in faster transients and finer detail.
Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the speaker uses rubber surrounds.
Mounting: Out of the box the DXi 6501 woofers are a direct replacement for many standard 6-3/4" applications. 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 the four hole pattern is not a direct replacement (new screw holes would need to be drilled; in this instance mounting depth would be 1.947" and mounting height 0.427"; 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).
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|
|Depth||0.21" (screw depth)||1.082"|
Design: The outboard 2-way Butterworth crossovers have a 12 dB/octave slope (high-pass and low-pass).
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.
Connections: The crossover inputs and outputs are screw terminals. The terminals will accommodate the included wire or spade connectors up to 0.3" wide.
Mounting: There are two mounting holes in the base of each crossover; the cover must be removed to install the mounting screws.
