About the Polk Audio MM 6502
Next-level Polk speakers
Next-level Polk speakers
We're big fans of Polk speakers for their reliability and precise sound, and their premium Mobile Monitor Series MM 6502 6-1/2" component speaker system only improves on that well-earned reputation. You can count on low distortion and maximum performance from this flagship Polk line, the result of years of research and development. These rugged car speakers are ultra-marine certified, able to shrug off harsh environmental abuse to deliver exceptional sound for nearly any application, from cars to boats.
Don't be shy with the power
The highly efficient speakers will work well with an aftermarket radio, but keep in mind that they will really show off their stuff with a lot of power from an aftermarket amp. The titanium-coated 6-1/2" polymer component woofer cone, backed by a space-efficient magnet, delivers the full sound you've been hungry for. A low-profile, lightweight carbon basket features excellent venting to keep these speakers cool when you're really pouring on the power. And your music's high frequencies will soar, thanks to delicate handling by the newly designed separate 1" Terylene fabric dome tweeter. Polk's well-built external crossover network ensures accurate highs from the tweeter and lows from the woofer.

Ultra-Marine Certified: Polk MM1 Series speakers are tested to withstand exposure to salt-fog, UV rays, and humidity, so they'll work well in boats and cars. They also include stainless mounting hardware for corrosion resistance.
Size Classification Note: These speakers are marketed as 6-1/2"; the woofers will fit in standard 6-1/2" speaker openings, but do not use the standard 6-1/2" speaker bolt pattern. In order to install them in standard 6-1/2" speaker openings you must drill new screw holes. If new holes are drilled in the mounting surface of the car, no bracket is needed. If drilling in the car is not an option, the included brackets can be used, which have standard 6-1/2" mounting holes, the Ford non-symmetric four hole pattern, and non-standard 6-3/4" three and four hole patterns. Enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
Note: The opening for a standard 6-1/2" speaker is not a 6-1/2" diameter hole. (It's approximately 5" in diameter.)
Dynamic Balance: Dynamic Balance is a proprietary Polk Audio technology using laser imaging to determine what combination of speaker materials create the least resonance. Eliminating resonance in speakers results in a wide, smooth response and low distortion.
Neodymium Magnets: The woofers' neodymium magnets offer an exceptional strength to weight ratio, and are much smaller than typical magnets of equal strength.
Woofer Basket: The woofer baskets are fiberglass reinforced ABS, lightweight and corrosion resistant.
Drainage: The woofer should be mounted so the slots along the perimeter of one side of the basket are at the bottom, so any trapped water can drain.
Material: The tweeter material is Terylene, a brand name of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).
Mounting: The supplied mounting cups allow you to surface-mount or flush-mount the tweeters. The tweeters swivel in both housings, allowing you to adjust them for optimum imaging.
Tweeter Mounting Dimensions:
|Surface Mount||Flush Mount|
|Depth||0.915" (screw depth)||1.052"|
2-Way Crossovers: Each outboard crossover features a 12dB/octave high-pass network for the tweeter and a 12dB/octave low-pass network for the woofer. The crossover point is 3.0 kHz.
Tweeter Attenuation Switch: You can adjust the output of the tweeter to match a level appropriate to your vehicle or your system. The tweeter attenuation switch can be set to -3dB, 0dB, or +3dB.
Connections: Each crossover has screw terminal inputs and outputs that will accommodate bare wire or spade connectors up to 0.375" wide.
Mounting: There are two screw holes in the base of each crossover for mounting.
- Width: 3.571"
- Depth: 4.258"
- Height: 1.187"
