Overview

Our take on the Polk Audio db571

Good music becomes great when you hear it through Polk's db Series car speakers. Polk engineers use laser imaging to determine the ideal combination of speaker materials and design to eliminate distortion. The resulting technology produces speakers with smooth frequency response, sharp detail, and the ability to play music at high volumes without strain.

Give new life to your music

Good music becomes great when you hear it through Polk's db Series car speakers. Polk engineers use laser imaging to determine the ideal combination of speaker materials and design to eliminate distortion. The resulting technology produces speakers with smooth frequency response, sharp detail, and the ability to play music at high volumes without strain.

Polk's db571 speakers feature 5"x7"/6"x8" woofers made from a polymer/mica composite and durable rubber surrounds that won't fall apart under stress from heat, moisture, or time. Liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeters use powerful Neodymium magnets to deliver precise high-frequency reproduction, enveloping you in bright musical detail. The built-in two-way crossovers keep the high and low frequencies flowing to the proper drivers for seamless, efficient audio.

Whether you've got a factory radio or an aftermarket stereo, these efficient speakers will spice up your daily drive. And Polk certifies their db Series speakers for marine applications, so they're a great choice for your boat, motorcycle, or ATV

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.

5x7/6x8 Speaker: This speaker can be used in both 5x7 and 6x8 applications. The supplied mounting adapter ring allows the speaker to adapt to a 5x7 cutout when top mounted, and should be used to achieve a good seal when bottom mounted in both 5x7 and 6x8 applications.

Woofer Cones: Each speaker features a Dynamic Balance polymer/mica composite mineral-filled cone. The cones are stiff and lightweight for big sound and low distortion.

Butyl Rubber Surrounds: For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofers use butyl rubber surrounds.

Kapton Voice Coil Former: The low-mass, 2-layer Kapton Voice Coil former is lightweight for high sound output. Kapton's high melting temperature (725°F) ensures high power handling and longer reliability.

Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The 3/4" liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs. The tweeters use neodymium magnets.

2-way Crossover Network: The built-in 2-way crossover network sends the appropriate frequencies to each driver for cleaner sound and better imaging.

I did not use the spacers, they started rattling. Bass response is the same on my F150. I have a Sony stereo and the Polk speakers are fantastic! [ Brian  Feb 05, 2016 ]

They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle. [ Krissy  Feb 05, 2016 ]  Staff
I DID NOT HOOK THEM UP TO A FACTORY SYSTEM [ MIKE  Dec 07, 2015 ]
They will sound better but remember a factory head unit naturally reduces base when you turn up the volume. So yes they will ... but if you are looking for even better sound, you can get aa sound processor and your factory head unit will act like an aftermarket. All that said ...... they will still sound better just by upgrading you speakers. [ Michael  Dec 05, 2015 ]
Used these Polk speakers with both the factory radio and a mid price Sony unit. The speakers sound a bit better than the factory but the factory radio is horrible. If you get even a basic aftermarket radio you will be very happy with the Polk speakers. They are excellent for the price with surprisingly strong base. Very good choice. [ Tomi  Dec 05, 2015 ]
yes, they will make your head unit sound better. [ MICHAEL E  Dec 04, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: These Polk speakers can handle all the watts the Power Pack outputs which means you can set the gain to whatever sounds the best to you. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy  Sep 04, 2014 ]  Staff
We show the diagonals being 7.886 and 8.237 - with the listing for minor axis being: 4.597 4.914 4.25 4.467 [ Jeff  Aug 25, 2014 ]  Staff
