Our take on the Polk Audio db651s

Good music becomes great when you hear it through Polk's db Series car speakers.

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 db651s shallow-mount speakers feature 6-1/2" woofers made from a polymer/mica composite and durable rubber surrounds that stand up to heat and moisture. Liquid-cooled 3/4" silk/polymer dome tweeters use powerful Neodymium magnets to deliver precise high-frequency reproduction. With a 2" mounting depth, these speakers can fit into some tight places. The built-in two-way crossovers keep the high and low frequencies flowing to the proper drivers for seamless, efficient audio.

These speakers feature stainless steel mounting hardware and muscular ABS grilles that will add a stylish touch to your car's interior. And Polk certifies their db Series speakers for marine applications, so they're a great choice for your boat, motorcycle, or ATV.

Great Sound after Burn-in

Niko from Flagstaff, AZ on 7/6/2017

2017 Honda HR-V

I've had these speakers in my 2007 Honda CRV EX-L AWD for a few years. and after letting them Burn in for awhile, they are amazing. The Highs are crisp. The Mids are detailed, and the Bass is pretty decent for door speakers. Overall, they are worth the value. My Friends enjoy the clarity and have commented on them. If you let aftermarket speakers burn in for awhile, they sound great. but I enjoy my Polk Audios.

Pros: Great Overall Sound for door speakers, Easy to install,

Cons: long burn in process

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for a 16 Subaru WRX. The speakers fit great on front and rear doors. I powered four of these speakers with an Alpine KTU Power Pack with my stock head unit. The stock speakers sounded ok with the power pack and it had pretty decent bass for stock speakers. These db651's sound better than stock, but have less bass. So be prepared to either add more power or install a sub if you want more low end frequencies.

Pros: -Great sounding speaker for the price. -Straight forward installation.

Cons: -Not that good in low end frequencies.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got these to upgrade the speakers in the roll bar in my Wrangler, and they have done just that. These things sound fantastic, lots of clear highs and mids with a touch of low end so there isn't too much of a gap between the speakers and sub. They also look nice and the fact that they're somewhat water resistant is great for when I have the top off of the Jeep!

Pros: Clarity, Highs and Mids, Looks Good, Performs Well

Cons: None!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced factory GMC Canyon front door speakers. These Polk audio speakers produce crisp clean sound that will blow away any factory speaker. I use an aftermarket head unit and no amp so I can't speak to the bass performance. That being said ,the bass was an noticeable improvement over the factory speaker.

Pros: Sound quality

Cons: None

Great quality. Good sound.

Brad J from Wagoner, OK on 9/29/2016

2016 Nissan Versa SV
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to replace the stock speakers in my 2016 Nissan Versa, and decided on the Polk speakers, due to the impressive tech specs and the good service I've had with some Polk home speakers I've had for many years. I've always been impressed with the Polk sound and the quality of the materials and craftsmanship Polk puts into its products. When these speakers arrived, I was not disappointed. They lived up to my expectations. They were easy to install and they sound great, paired with my Rockford Fosgate P300X2 Punch amp and Audio Control LC2i line output converter. (I wanted to save money, so I only replaced the front speakers, which only required a 2-channel amp). The only downside I can report, is that the extreme high frequencies seem to be a little harsh, and the bass could be more prominent. These shortcomings may have more to do with me using the factory head unit and less with the speakers themselves. I plan on installing a sub, soon, so I'm not that worried about the missing bass.

Pros: Quality materials and craftsmanship. Overall good sound. All-in-all a good value for the money.

Cons: Extreme high frequencies seem to be a bit harsh. Could have better bass response.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The highs and mids were definitely more clear than the factory, but the lows are non-existent. The factory radio just doesn't have enough power to push these. I will add a head unit and amp to see if I get better results, and update.

Pros: Price. Fit.

Cons: Lows lacking with factory head unit.

BillM from Philadelphia, PA on 9/1/2016

2015 Subaru Impreza
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install speakers. This was my first time upgrading a car system. Prior car had an upgraded audio setup. These do exactly what I want them to do. I'm 35, I'm not looking for bass thumping that can be heard a block away. Instead, just want a good, crisp sound for driving around town. These do exactly that, combined with fatmat and some mdf, life is good!

Pros: Very nice, crisp sounding speakers. Instant difference over factory. Not overpowering, not deep in any particular focus area. Has a pleasant sharp bass.

Cons: They don't really favor a particular sound per se. They definitely have a sharp thump to the bass, but not anything that's too extreme or able to discern the intricacies of heavier sounds.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They are a perfect fit in the stock locations in my 2001 Jeep Cherokee XJ. I am powering them with an Alpine KTP-445U amp with the lower cut off at 60. My bass comes from a powered subwoofer, RF Punch P300-10. I love the sound. No complaints at all.

Pros: Perfect fit in my vehicle. They match up nicely with the RF sub.

Cons: I got nothing

Nice upgrade from factory speakers

Finally got these installed in a Honda Ridgeline and fit like a glove with the included adapter. The sound is so dynamic compared to factory, should have done it a long time ago. Works great with a factory radio.

Pros: Works well off a factory radio power. The tweeter brings the highs to life.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

One of my front factory speakers blew out so I needed a replacement. After reading through a number of reviews, this speaker set seemed to fit the bill regarding customer satisfaction and value. After installing the speakers, I am very happy with their performance, but I believe the installation instructions could be better. I had to go online to some 4runner specific sites to get better instructions on removing the door panels, and it would have been helpful to know that I would need connector spades to attach to the speaker wire. Overall, I am very satisfied.

Pros: Good sound Good value

Cons: Incomplete installation instructions

The clarity is undeniable!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted to upgrade my stock system in my 2004 Chevy Silverado but being a car audio novice I was soon awash in confusing tech data and specification charts. Tim, my outstanding Crutchfield sales rep, suggested the pairing of the Polk Audio db651 with the Kenwood Excelon DPX592BT. Everything came in one box with great instructions. I must admit, these Polk Audio speakers looked so sharp, I contemplated how I might surface mount these speakers just to show them off! As soon as I completed the straightforward install, I cranked up my favorite jams and was instantly satisfied that I had been well advised! The clarity is unbelievable! My truck is an extended cab model, so I had also placed a pair of Polk Audio db461p's in the rear panels. I elected not to install an amp or subwoofer, so I will not be shaking any lugnuts off the wheels, but the music has a very high quality reproduction for my modest investment and it is plenty loud! Thank you, Tim, for the guidance and great suggestions and thank you Crutchfield for outstanding customer support!

Pros: Sharp design, quality materials, amazing reproduction of sound.

Cons: Haven't found any yet. Still tweaking.

W. Todd from Ontario, CA on 7/15/2016

2007 Toyota Yaris
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It has been a week now since I installed these speaker. They need a good week or so to break in as all speakers do as these in particular sounded way too treble strong and no mids but after some brake in time I have noticed the mids are finally getting stronger and sound better. The highs tamed down a bit but are the dominating sound of the speaker. The bass is fine with me, it sounds very good, deep, controlled and blends nicely with the mids. I don't like a lot of bass as I am an audiophile and like my sound as natural sounding as possible but again I really don't need a sub unless you like a lot of bass then you will need one. I will say that I find that these speakers bring out the detail of your recordings especially high end recordings. They are very good with classical, Jazz and acoustic Music/New Age. I find myself looking forward to driving for this reason as my Windham Hill CD sounds amazingly detailed and nice. I like hearing the remastered down loads from my iPod and phone as it sounds very good. some radio stations sound good to me others sound bad the crank up the highs and lows leaving a very un-natural sound. so it depends on your musical preference. I am giving it four stars as the highs can be a little dominating at times. All in all I really do enjoy these speakers.

Pros: Built in cross over, bring out the detail in good music recordings. Cooled tweeter.

Cons: The highs can be a little strong at times.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just installed my new Polk db651s last week. I love the crisp refreshing they produce especially compared the the original factory speakers. The factory speakers sounded ok but the new Polks are awesome. I've always enjoyed buying my electronics through Crutchfield. Their support is second to none, plus they provide the " extras" to make installation easy. My answer to installing new speakers is patience. Taking apart the rear deck area of my Nissan Sentra was a pain but with the step by step instructions Crutchfield provides it wasn't bad at all, again, patience! Overall I throughly enjoy the quality sound my new Polk speakers produce.

Pros: Great quality sound. Well built product.

Cons: None.

Stephen from Pittsburgh, PA on 7/7/2016

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I went through all stages with these speakers starting with them alone on the factory head unit. Then came the rockford fosgate p300-10 followed by a pioneer nav unit pushing 14w rms over 4 channels. That setup sounded really good but they seemed drowned by the sub so in goes the Polk pa660 at something like 70w rms over the 4 channels at 4ohms and WOW. Now thesr tiny things are drowning my sub. Upgrade the sub to the JL audio 12" powerwedge and POW! Balanced system! (Still gonna add the rockford back in for kicks!) Anyone who says they're junk has no idea how to make them thump and scream...cuz they WILL

Pros: Incredible sound for the size and price and the marine grade is a major plus.

Cons: I'm getting a little 'bright' ness out of them but don't know if its the amp or head unit or a bad cable yet(still working on that one)

I was a little skeptical on how a slim speaker could handle any sort of bass or mids, but this speaker does not disappoint! Within seconds of swapping one out and doing a test from left to right, the clarity was amazing and it handles volume well too! I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to upgrade their stock speakers!

Daniel from Phoenixville, PA on 6/24/2016

2001 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been a long-time Polk Audio customer, beginning with a pair of their RT10 towers for stereo listening and home theater (still have them). I've since used their speakers in two vehicles (so far), all with satisfactory results. These are the nicest units I've purchased yet (haven't gone to components yet). They have great mid bass and midrange performance, albeit I'm sure they will really shine once I Dynamat my interior. They handle power well (only using the power provided by my Pioneer AVH-X3800BHS at this time) and put out plenty of volume with clean sound and no distortion. As others have mentioned, bass extension isn't exciting, but consider that bass reproduction is largely dependent upon the efficiency of your door acting as an enclosure and most vehicle doors are so full of holes that it's not possible for a speaker to perform at its peak without adding some form of sealing/insulation, in which case I'd expect the low-end performance to increase significantly. Drivers need back-pressure to move the volume of air necessary to produce significant bass output. Take a subwoofer out of its enclosure and see how weak it sounds; these are no different and a door is a lousy enclosure from the factory. Nonetheless, I have a Bazooka BTA8100 in the rear cargo area filling in for deep bass reproduction and these blend nicely with the sub. Build quality is great and installation straightforward. I also like their marine rating for long-term durability.

Pros: Power-handling capabilities Marine-ready rating and design Good value with good sound

Cons: Wish the tweeters could be positioned/adjusted

Bass is not as factory speakers

I went with the Polk due to my home theater system being Polk. I did not want to search for another brand so I had no problem choosing Polk.

Pros: Highs are good and clear, mid on my truck is not good. Maybe I don't have good insulation.

Cons: The bass is not there at all, you must push the speaker to getgood bass out of it.

2004 Ford Mustang
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I added the 651s's from Polk Audio through Crutchfield to go with the 521's, and the 1000 watt amp! This was a labor of the love of music. Ford did great with the Mach system, the sound was great, but the big screw up was not letting you change the head unit without a total rewire!!! After the rewire and installation of the new amp and both sets of speakers......OH how I love driving my Stang around!! The only thing lacking is the bass. I have ordered the Bazooka 10" sub. I don't need the overpowering bass, just something to enhance the listening experience! Can't wait to get that and install it too!!

Pros: Marine rated speakers are best for your convertible! The sound is fantastic! Crisp Highs, and Mids!

Cons: Lacks the oomph of the bass, but you can get that covered with a good subwoofer!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I picked these speakers because of relatively good reviews, previous satisfaction with Polk speakers purchased from Crutchfield, and they were on sale. I was initially disappointed with these speakers. They were very quiet and lacked bass when compared to the stock speakers they had replaced. I thought seriously about returning them. I know from what I have read some speakers benefit greatly from an amp. I have no plans to install an amp. I had heard that some speakers require time to "break-in" so I decided to wait awhile (and remain optimistic) before making a decision to send them back. I shifted the fader to the front to create a more even sound throughout my car. I am noticing the speakers are louder and now demonstrate a fullness when bass is present. These qualities were lacking initially.

Pros: Speakers sound great now.

Cons: Adapter wires provided by Crutchfield were not long enough. This was made known to me at the time of purchase.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I thought the Bose speakers were very nice, and actually they were until one finally blew. These installed extremely quickly once I figured out how to mount them. I was surprised by just how clear they were next to my old speakers. The mids and highs are great, and they have a nice punchy kick to them that compliments a small sub that came with the car. You won't get extremely low bass but you'll get amazing clarity and attack. Everything I have played through them sounds twice as clear as it did to my ears. At 69.99, $35 a speaker I feel like I got an amazing deal. As always Crutchfield is a great company when you need a little support.

Pros: Clarity, attack

Cons: None

Nice sound for mids and highs, not so much with bass, but the speakers are not designed for bass, the inline capacitors signify that. I wouldn't buy them for stock replacement without added bass, but wound not shy away from them for mids and highs.

monsdomain from Salt Lake City, UT on 5/2/2016

2007 Hyundai Sonata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced all 4 stock aging door speakers with these bad boys and they work great with my old Kenwood receiver. Sound quality is typical of Polk Audio speakers, well balanced mid/hi. Also installed the Sound Ordinance powered sub under the driver seat to take care of the lows and the result? Speakers work in beautiful harmony and they don't drown each other out. Sound is amazing for what I spent on this upgrade. Clear and crisp sound with just enough punch without annoying other cars at a traffic stop. If you're in the market for speakers, consider the Polk Audio db651s but manage your expectations appropriately as they will NOT satisfy your bass craving. That's what a powered sub woofer is for.

Pros: Solid build and design like any other Polk Audio products. Clear, crisp sound

Cons: Spacers Crutchfield sent did not fit in either of the door speaker holes. Had to trim each spacer to make them fit which made my install time a lot longer

Outstanding OEM replacement. And, if you just want to improve over stock GM door panel speakers (the worst in the auto industry) these are a dramatically noticeable improvement. The price is right too.

Pros: Super easy install. Solid bass stock GM speakers don't have. Makes the GM head-unit sound 100 times better.

Cons: Holes didn't match precisely on back doors. Not really an issue with the speakers - more an issue with the replacement mounts provided.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Polk's db651 s are amazing. I bought my 2015 Jeep Wrangler and man does it ever have a terrible factory oem sound system. It does have a soft top and there was no way I would have been able to hear anything this summer. I was looking at the kicker's being from Ok, and Rockford Fosgate's since I'm a child of the 90's and thats what was cool then. Can't speak for the quality of either Kicker or Rockford Fosgate, but I can tell you I am glad I went with the Polks. I live chatted with Crutchfield and they suggested these. Super easy installation with the plug & play Metra 71-050 Speaker Wiring Adapters and Scosche SAC-656 Multipurpose Speaker Mounting Brackets. Both of which were free with my order. Added some Dynamat to the speaker pods and some polyfill. Hooked everything up and sounded better but still not great. Ended up installing an alpine KTP-445u to push the polks and now I'm happy.

Pros: Clean design and great quality. Crisp treble and good mids. Easy installation if I can do it anyone can. I suggest hooking an amp up to them to help get the watts up for a better sound.

Cons: None so far.

PrestonTX from Denton, TX on 3/31/2016

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were replacement speakers from the factory set of 4. Since it is a economy car, I also purchased baffles to get the best sound possible. I would say I am moderately satisfied. Better then the factory, not as great as expected given the other reviews. Crutchfield was amazing. Shipping, instructions and such were spot on. Perhaps I'll top grade again in the future, but for now - cie la vie. Caveat Emptor.

Pros: Highs & Mid are crisp and sound great.

Cons: The bass is sub par. At any increased setting you will get distortion at least for any type of dance, techno, or BPM music.

Polk db651s in a 2006 Chevy Trailblazer w/ a Sony MX-XB100BT Head Unit

SD from South Carolina on 3/30/2016

2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bang for the buck, these are a great set of speakers. I would highly recommend them to anyone who likes clean and clear audio at a relatively inexpensive price. I installed four of these Polk db651s speakers with the Sony MEX-XB100BT head unit in my 2006 Chevy Trailblazer. This Sony head unit has a bass boost feature which essentially pushes 100 watts to each speaker (when bass boost is OFF the speakers get about 40 watts per speaker and it is a noticeable difference). I also have a pair of 12 inch subs with an amp, so between these four polk speakers and the subs I get a loud and full range of sound from the music I listen to (which is a wide variety of music - pop, rap, country, jazz, classical, etc. If you are considering 3 way or the component speakers like I did, my decision to go with these came down to the fact that these 2 way speakers had reviews that claimed great sound quality and were going to be a better value in the long run. So far those reviews have been spot on. My guess on any of the negative reviews that have been posted for this product is that those people did not provide enough wattage to these speakers. Because of the Sony head unit I have, I've heard them at both 40 and 100 watts. I can easily say you will want at least 100 watts going to each speaker. Lastly, Clarence from Crutchfield was great when I called in to make sure I wasn't missing anything and he had the same opinion on this product as many of the positive reviewers on this product

Pros: Extremely clear/crisp highs due to the hi/low filters attached to the speakers. Mid range is decent for 6.5 inch speakers when given enough watts (recommend minimum 100 watts per speaker). As many reviewers stated this is not a sub woofer so don't expect thumping. Speakers fit as Crutchfield stated they would (a car audio business did the install, said it went without a hitch). Overall the speakers are excellent value for the price but definitely recommend 100 watts per speaker at a minimum.

Cons: Two things I will comment on. 1) For good quality and relative loudness these speaker definitely require more watts than 15 to 55 watts per speaker that your typical head unit provides. 2) Some reviewers have stated that the high end frequencies are too high for them. Depending on your hearing, I could see how some people claimed this but I personally don't fall under this category and am very pleased with these speakers so far (full disclosure I have only had them for a week and a half now).

I installed our old sub woofer (from our 2007 Elantra) into our 2014 Accent to see if the added bass would breathe new life into the system. I still wasn't satisfied, so tried these Polk speakers - what a difference! The sound is much clearer and dynamic - a very noticeable improvement. Installing the speakers took longer than anticipated, as I wanted to make sure the job was done correctly. The Crutchfield team makes it easy with their instruction sheet that is very detailed and model specific. You won't be disappointed with these speakers - much improved over factory - makes driving the car fun!

Pros: Very clear and detailed sound, well built and fits perfectly.

Cons: None that I can think of.

I bought these to replace my stock Bose speakers and am glad I did. The highs are much more defined and clear and the bass response is superior. I've used Polk Audio in almost every application you can think of and am never disappointed. I'm not so much of an audiophile that I need to spend the big money on Focal, but not so naive to think I would be happy with the cheapest option out there. Polk Audio always seems to be exactly where I need to be for price and superior quality.

Pros: Price, sound quality.

Theses speakers are slim and fit as expected. I am driving th she speakers with a Pioneer DEH-8700h and I was some what disappointed. The power out from the head unit did not have enough power out to drive these speakers unless the volume was turned up past 3/4. Since the initial install I have updated my system and added a Blaupunkt 55 RMS amp and a Sound Ordinance powered sub. Now we're talking the db651s have the power to them to drive the speakers so the bass is there and sounds great

Pros: Price Fit Quality Sound presence

Cons: Need some power to drive them

I replaced the factory speakers with these. It was a huge improvement! Music is so much cleaner. I actually hear things that previously were not produced with the factory speakers. These produce great highs and mid range. I am using the factory radio so they may produce more bass if I replaced the head unit and add an amp. I also replaced the factory 8" sub at the same time but didn't add an amp for it either.

Pros: The speakers are great! With the adapters provided by Crutchfield the front speakers went right in. Using the rear speaker adapters I had to do a little customization to make this work.

Cons: None I can think of.

These are great speakers for my rear door speakers in my 2002 Silverado HD2500 Crew Cab. I've been a fan of Polk Audio for almost 30 years. These didn't disappoint. Crutchfield also went above and beyond. While installing the first set of speakers I ran my screw gun through the cone of the speaker. When I went to purchase a 2nd set I noticed that it said it fit my truck but I needed a bracket. The first set didn't come with a bracket. I asked the CS rep on chat about it and he arranged for the replacement of my damaged speakers and sent the right bracket - NO CHARGE. They even cross shipped. I was ready to buy a new pair, told them it was my fault, but they replaced them anyway - WOW!

Pros: Sound WAY better than the stock speakers and CS was over the top

I bought these speakers to replace the speakers in my 2002 GMC Yukon and they worked perfectly. The front door install was incredibly easy and took about a half hour after I had already gathered the tools required. The back door speakers fit, however, they were much more difficult to install because the bracket included did not fit the door very well. I ended up having to screw the bracket into the door and then screwing the speakers to those with separate screws that were not intended for it.

Pros: Sounds good. Very easy install.

Cons: The back doors required more thought and effort than anticipated.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a 2006 Honda Civic. I bought the car a couple years ago with the front speakers already blown. Recently, the back right speaker blew out, and left me with no choice but to look into speakers. I don't know anything about cars, but I went online, talked to Ringo, and he attached a list of speakers that would fit my car and everything I needed to install. He recommended these speakers, and the results are fantastic. Super easy to install. Again, I don't know much about cars or stereos, but it was very easy. And the sound quality is excellent. I have no complaints at all. Now, my opinion might not be worth much to you, since I'd be driving around with one back speaker for some time, and had heard music in the front speakers for the first time when I installed these. But I do find the quality to be excellent. Love the product, love the easy to install

Pros: Easy install, great sound

Cons: N/A

Absolutely outstanding sound quality! I can now pick out every nuance of sound! Outstanding highs and mids with a decent midrange punch. Don't buy these if you want to rock a lot of bass out of them though ( which you should never do with 6 1/2s), that is not what their forte is. Just make sure you've got or are planning to get a sub and I promise these will not disappoint! Excellent quality for the money!

Pros: Excellent highs and mids, build quality and sound clarity

Cons: None really, except if you were wanting to crank the bass up on these. But don't do that. Not what these are built for.

2006 Honda Civic LX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I delivery of the product was very fast. The master sheet is Ok for the instructions. Back to review: PoldDB651s: Sound quality is quite better as compared to the stock speakers. But, for this to understand you don have to be an audiophile instead just by the look of the dbs you can make that out. The speakers are good for high and better for Mids but worst for Low(Bass). If you are planning to change these just for the sake of getting the stock ones out then it is OK but if the purpose is for enhanced listening experience then have some bucks extra for upcoming changes. I connected these to the HU already available so I am not sure how would they sound with the amplifier but from what I assume they wont better in the low section ever. Definitely they would go up more on Mid's and High's on high volume but who wants that on high vol? Generally speaking the Low are the ones that are expected to thumping with balanced sound. To do these do as I did: Order a subwoofer immediately before you get more frustrated with the low bass sound. I would suggest ordering a Powered subwoofer which can stay in the cabin allowing you to balance the sound properly. Specially for Civic 2006 Coupe: Firstly the rear speakers are pain in the butt. The space is extremely less. To pry the top cover in rear dont forget push the panel above reason being the clips that hold it. To get them out dont pull towards you instead apply force vertically. Finally I guess the overall quality & sound is go

Pros: Crisp High, Good Mid, balanced sound. Better built quality as compared to stock ones.

Cons: Poor performance on bass. Distortion on high vol which I assume can be removed by connecting an amp and external sub ofcourse.

Love the speakers!

Thought They Lacked Power and Punch Until...

KatGo from san francisco, CA on 1/31/2016

After replacing stock radio with Pioneer receiver, thought adding 4 new speakers to my 1999 Jeep Cherokee would give me all the power and sound I needed. But when I turned up the volume to about 30, the radio powered off like it was over-loading. Checked all the wiring then called Crutchfield and was told that I probably needed a subwoofer--that my system was under-powered. They recommended a Sound Ordinance powered subwoofer (they liked it and was popular), stating that it would meet my requirement of fitting under my passenger seat, but they were wrong. I did my own measurements and bought the Kenwood KSC-SW11 at eBay for much lower price. Fits perfectly, and there are good metal grounding locations there and holes for vents. Installation was easy, and sound was good, but receiver still powered off when I turned the volume up. Noticed it was worse on hot days, and fan/AC controls got hot to the touch. Googled this and found that my blower fan was failing and causing some high heat on the dash temp controls. Bought a new fan, and BOOM, no more radio cutting out at very high volume! Love Crutchfield, but you guys were wrong about everything, including stating that 6 1/2 speakers wouldn't fit the rear ceiling. I will say that bass was definitely lacking before adding the subwoofer. I don't listen to anything boomy, like Rap so don't need to rattle the windows, but the Kenwood will definitely vibrate all the seats and doors! Don't even want a newer SUV anymore!

Pros: Clear, clean highs and mids for voice and acoustic instruments. Very easy install that "even a girl can do". Ha.

Cons: Thin bass and mids.

Good speakers!

Petey from greensboro, NC on 1/30/2016

Installed these in my 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the factory Alpine system. This upgraded system stinks! I knew I needed some aftermarket speakers. Crutchfield made the install super easy after it came within 36 hours of the order (we are pretty close to their location). Anyway, I added some polly fill to the empty sound bar and WOW, these make a heck of a improvement even still with the factory head unit and none of the other speakers touched, I am pretty satisfied with these, and will probably order another set for the dash. Props to Crutchfield for including everything I needed.

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, easy to install, marine rated, clear highs and full lows.

Cons: Mid range is just okay

Wonderful speakers!

Great improvement in sound in my 2012 Subaru Outback! Well worth doing. Crutchfield instructions were clear and accurate. Holding the new and old speakers in my hands, what a difference. No wonder the new ones sound so much better.

Pros: Installation went fine, sound is terrific!

Cons: Nothing really.Maybe it could have been mentioned that the speaker adapter rings go with the front speakers, no need for them on the rear. But that does become self evident once you get into it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Opted to go the 6.5" route after finding out that the Kicker 6x9's I ordered for my 2008 Ram didn't quite fit (the ever elusive fourth hole!). The supplied adapter plate made it a an exact and airtight fit with foam gasket material. Wasn't expecting this much improvement in every catagory! Super tight midbass punch with frightening clarity. Even when using with the factory head unit the difference is amazing. I was worried about a loss of bass but after break-in that all diminished. My bass, midrange and treble settings are all set to flat now. Worth every penny.

Pros: Build construction and clarity

Cons: Supplied hardware although stainless steel was a little cheesy. Wound up using the hardware supplied with the adapter plate to mount the speakers.

Barry from corvallis, OR on 1/25/2016

2009 Acura MDX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They are a good price and sound really good. The installation was difficult. The door panel came off as the instructions showed but the speaker was too large for the adapter plate. The original screw holes were covered by the speaker and needed a lot of grinding to make the access and a relief for the screw heads. A 5.25 inch speaker would have been installed with no modification. I called customer support and they explained that "they" should have explained that when I bought them. The screws supplied could not reach the adapter plate. I was surprised by the number of issues from a large supplier.

Pros: great sound and price.

Cons: Installation could have been a lot easier. Supplied adapter plate screws were too short to reach the sheet metal nuts.

2003 Subaru Baja
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these speakers as direct replacements for my wife's car, Subaru Baja sport. They are shockingly good. The sensitivity allows the stock head to preform very well. One could lose hearing in this car now, with stock speakers you had to run level 8 to hear them level 4 starts to become uncomfortable now. They are very clean sounding good mid-range and highs. The lows are much better than expected. The separation of sound is very good for this type of speaker. I really cannot say enough about them. Just a few years ago you would have to spend $500 to $800 for this kind of sound. Add the marine rating and you have real winners!

Pros: Ease of fit. Great highs and mid good lows for this type of speaker.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Replaced front door speakers with these Polk db651s. I've been a Polk customer and owner since 1983. There's a reason for that. Polk makes a good product. When I buy something for a fair price and it does what I expect it to do, I'm happy. These Polks were fairly priced and produce a good sound. I'm happy with them.

Pros: Quality speakers which produce a good sound for a fair price

Cons: Had to cut the plastic pins in the door mount to get speakers to fit. This does not affect the security of the speakers' mounting. The Metra 72-9300 wiring harness is not an exact match to the car's harness plug. It mates, but the plastic tab on the car's plug has nothing on the Metra plug into which it can lock. Friction keeps the plugs mated, but I taped around them with electrical tape just to be sure. Also, harness is too short if car plug kept connected to door. Not a problem, though.

These are probably some of the best improvements in sound for the least price. Relatively simple to install please remember that one of the mounting brackets inside the sound bar of the jeep wranglers is longer than the others make note of this as installation is easier when you remember which one of these to orient to.

Pros: Great price good improvement in sound certainly much better than the bass speakers

Cons: installation instructions were somewhat generic please pay attention to the one mounting bracket that is longer than the others within the sound bar the adapter cables were easy to use and a huge asset

Air Pedro from Minnesota on 1/6/2016

2003 Honda Accord EX
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These Polk Audio speakers sound very good, a serious upgrade over stock speakers. Some say the bass is not very good and others say it's great; which is correct. They both are. A 6.5" speaker physically can't produce bone rattling base, I don't care who makes it. These speakers produce a tight well defined mid-base, which is what they are designed to do. I plan to add a sub-woofer later. However, these Polk Audios do a good job of producing clean, well defined audio. The highs are crisp without being harsh, the mid and mid-bass are very good.

Pros: Good accurate sound.

Cons: None

These speakers were given to me as a Christmas gift by my daughter. I am a frequent visitor and buyer of Crutchfield products and would like to give you guys and gals kudos. This was an excellent fit and the brackets and wire harness made the install smooth. The only problem I had was I didn't receive the MasterSheet. Since I had never done this before,there was a slight learning curve. My buddy and I figured it and in the end all is well. Speakers sound great and I am happy. Well done Crutchfield. One favor, can u send me the MasterSheet just so I can have a copy. Thank You again.

Pros: Excellent fit, right hardware, great sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had my driver side door speaker go out and bought these to replace both front door speakers. My Liberty has the OEM Infinity stereo, I have always liked the way it sounded, good deep base. With the install of these, no more base. I bought them for the 50hz low rating vs. others at 70hz and above. If you have a sub, there is probably not a problem, they sound good and clean, the base they have is tight and you can turn them up without any signs of sloppy sound, they stay clean. Just not the deep base I was hoping to keep. Buy the MB-Quart ZK1-116 (20-20,000hz) rating.

Pros: Good clean sound even at elevated volumes.

Cons: No base below ~80hz

Attention to Detail from Tennessee on 11/16/2015

2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed into a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: The speakers are good, just be sure to make sure the little capacitors that are on the back side of the speakers are not loose, they come loose pretty easy. So what I did was used a little silicone caulk to hold them in place, I would suggest doing this even if they are not loose. Also the mounting brackets Crutchfield sends for free are terrible. They work ok for the front but not for the rear sound bar. The best thing to use for the rear sound bar is the metal bracket that the factory speaker is actually made of. What you do is cut the biggest part of the metal ring of the speaker away from the speaker (this destroys the factory speaker but you end up with a solid metal ring you can screw the new speaker to. This makes for a solid mount.

Pros: Speaker sounds good!

Cons: Mounting brackets from Crutchfield are flimsy and crack easily.

Bought these to install in a 2000 Tacoma access cab after listening to the DB651 speakers at best buy. I had to buy slim speakers due to the limited space so options were very limited. I knew i would lose some bass compared to the not-slim version of the speaker, but didnt realize it would be such a difference. Overall though i am satisfied with the purchase. The clarity is great on these, just lacking some bump in the low range.

Pros: great clarity for mids and highs slim fit

Cons: lack of bass

Sound clear! After some modification to factory "fill plate" in place of tweeters these fit perfectly in my Nitro. Plenty of excess wire and installation options. I think if I had to do it over again I would chose a different tweeter given my vehicle, by no means is it the tweeter itself. I just believe these are better suited for a vehicle with tweeters being placed in a deeper dash location compared to the lack of depth I have in given the Jeep windshield so close to the driver, or shallow dashboard. I was able to adjust to sound decent with Polk db641s.

Pros: Sound clear and easy install

I replaced 4 factory speakers in my 2013 Honda Accord, which were OK, just not very good. I was looking for a little clearer highs, and some added depth. I had no illusions that I would be creating a "thumping" system - for that I will need a powered Subwoofer. These coaxial Polks gave me exactly what I expected in terms of a quality speaker system - a nicely rounded out sound experience. Since my son was helping me install these speakers, it wasn't hard at all :-)

Pros: Nice, crisp sound. Great price.

Cons: The included installation instructions fall a bit short. I reccomend using You Tube to research your install.

Not Bad.

The speakers sound clean and clear. The efficiency is much better than the factory speakers that were replaced. My install was an 07 Trailblazer. The website said fits with adapter. That was an understatement. When I did a test fit of the adapter and speaker into the housing on the car door, I knew there would be cutting. I called Crutchfield to confirm my thoughts and the tech service said, yes, it looks like a tight fit. I proceeded with lots of cutting and some drilling until I got the speakers installed. I did not expect to spend several hours doing the install, as the website stated fits with adapter. I have had much easier installs on other cars I have owned.

Pros: Speakers sound great and are very efficient.

Cons: Fit with my vehicle was difficult.

Purchased these speakers for my Toyota Tundra 2002. Matched them to a Clarion Cx 501. I was frankly disappointed about the difference or lack thereof from my 20 watt original speakers by Toyota. I'm not sure why that is since I was advised to purchase exactly these speakers with the particular Clarion head unit I already had installed. The improvement with the head unit from the previous head unit was significant with the factory speakers. I was simply hoping for an even better improvement using the Polk speakers. I actually replaced all four. I wish I could give these speakers a better rating.

I installed 4 of these in a Corolla 4 years ago and they are still going strong. Those are a ken wood head unit and a 4x40 ken wood amp. They are paired with a Bazooka tube and two 3 1/2" Polk tweeters. The speakers are so good I just purchased 4 more for my Tacoma.

Pros: They are great when paired with some tweeters and a Bazooka tube. They sound very crisp,and clear. You hear so much more than the factory speakers.

Speakers sound great. The front door mounting adapters were a perfect fit on my 2004 Tahoe. The rear brackets took a little time staring at them and figuring out what tabs to use and what to remove. The instructions weren't very good for those. But still didn't take long to hook up. The wire adapters were perfect.

Pros: Sound great with stock stereo and even better with aftermarket.

Cons: Rear door mounting adapter instructions not very helpful

Bought a pair of these for my Mercury Tracer. I installed them in the front doors without a hitch thanks to Crutchfield's handy "how to" video. They sound a lot better than the factory speakers and my car had the "premium sound package" from the factory.

Polk Audio db651s speakers

DaveR from Farmington, Connecticut on 6/5/2015

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Polk Audio db651s speakers sound great, look like they are built to last, and were easy to install in my 2003 Chevy Silverado. The door-ajar chime also now works! The enclosed door panel removal instructions were helpful, and there are also several "You Tube" videos available that provide similar information in a more visual format. The GM compatible wiring harnesses proved to be very helpful, since no cutting, splicing or soldering was required. The Metra 82-3002 mounting brackets were also very helpful, since no drilling of the door panels was required. However, the Metra instructions only referenced 1995-1999 Chevrolet and GMC pick-up trucks, which caused me to confirm with Crutchfield that I received the correct speaker mounting brackets. Also, the instructions for the speaker mounting brackets have a diagram on the front page which shows two speaker mounting brackets which mirror each other (i.e. a left and a right). However, my sealed package from Metra included two speaker brackets which were exactly the same (i.e. two lefts, or two rights). If the two speaker mounting brackets had been mirror-image, no alterations would have been required. For this installation, to flush mount the speaker mounting bracket on the driver-side door, the removal of one large plastic tab from the right side of one bracket was required. The safest way, to avoid breaking the bracket, was to carefully cut off the plastic tab with a coping saw.

Pros: The Polk Audio db651s speakers sound great, look like they are built to last, and were easy to install in my 2003 Chevy Silverado.

Cons: The Metra 82-3002 speaker mounting brackets should include two brackets that mirror each other (i.e. one designed for the driver-side door, and one designed for the passenger-side door).

I replaced the stock speakers in my 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with these speakers. The speakers are crisp, loud with no distortion, and sound really good. My sub doesn't overpower them like it has in other vehicles. I can actually listen to music and hear everything instead of just the thumping of the bass. The speakers by themselves have no bass pushing them with the 50 watts from my receiver, but I have an amp and sub for that.

Pros:

Cons:

Great mid-high range speakers

Aaron from Austin, Texas on 4/26/2015

I have them in the doors of my 2005 corolla, JVC head unit, and powered by a sound ordnance 75x4 amp. I can push these almost to max on the amp, and that's plenty loud for anything I can imagine. I listen to everything from rock to folk to hip hop and everything in between. I'm pretty used to live concert level audio from the front row. While these don't quite get that loud, they get darn near close enough for me. I work as a courier, so I'm driving all day, and I have not found fault with these yet. But beware! These do not go low enough to use without a sub. As long as you have or are planning on a sub, these will be perfect. If you don't want a sub, I've heard that the db651 NOT db651S has a much better bass response (35Hz vs 50Hz) for the same price. All in all, great door speakers.

I had a set of Polk dB 6x9 in my front doors, but wasn't really getting a lot from my rear doors (which were still factory speakers). Finally upgraded the rear ones and it really evened out my system. Loved the 6x9s I already had, and the 651 slims didn't disappoint.

Pros: Great speakers Compact package for those tight installations where the full size 6 ½s just won't fit Good price

Cons: People say these have low bass response compared to the regular 651. Havent heard the regular ones, but I would say these definitely aren't lacking in any area

2007 Honda S2000
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great price for a great speaker. I've read reviews with people unhappy with the bass quality. One thing I believe they have in common is that they were not running an amplifier to them (your factory head unit does not have enough power to run these speakers well). I installed these speakers (55W RMS) with an alpine head unit and alpine amplifier equaling 45W RMS and they sound phenomenal! Mids and highs are sharp and crisp and the bass is Amazing! I drive a S2000 and only have two 6.5" speakers with some tweeters and it's impressive how much bass there is. I can't wait till the surround and spider are broken in on the speakers. I heard that these speakers sound noticeably better after they are broken in with even more bass!

Pros: Well built, large tweeter

Cons:

Great Sound

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are for the rear doors of a 2006 Silverado CC HD. I am using these as mid/tweet since I have a powered subwoofer. I powered them from a SO 50W amp and they sound great! I have the amp set to HP and are feeding these 80Hz and above. I intentionally left out the low frequencies so the speakers could work in their designed range. I have the 6501 separates in the front doors powered from the same amp and I think these sound better, more balanced. Though crutchfield said I could not fit the non-S version I am pretty sure my door would have taken them no problem. I still don't regret getting the shallow version because as I said, these sound great. Not sure how happy I would be with these without a subwoofer.

Pros: Look and sound nice

Cons: None

Sound great. Put them in the soundbar of my '14 JK. Also used a Dynamat type product and polyfil in the soundbar at the same time so can't tell which item made the most improvements but all sound great.

Pros: Sound

Cons: They fit fine into the mounting bracket but the mounting bracket holes don't line up with the soundbar wholes. Had to take out the clip from the soundbar to make them fit which causes the screw to not be able to screw in tight and create a minor rattle with heavy bass songs.

Ken from Virginia on 4/7/2015

I just installed these Saturday and am in the process of breaking them in. Already I can tell you they sound a whole lot crisper and clearer than the stock speakers were. While there is not a whole lot of bass, there is some present. Don't expect big thumps because that's not what these speakers are for. You can definitely hear the richness of the sound quality with these. In the past I have had Pioneer speakers when I've upgraded. Right now I'm really glad I went with Polk. I put them in the front and back of a 2011 Impreza hatchback.

Pros: Great fit Excellent sound quality Easy install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Definitely a sound upgrade to the stock speakers. Powered by an Alpine HU. But the bracket used to install is a bit difficult to anchor. The long machine screw head can't be fully seated because the edge of the mounting bracket gets in the way. Fortunately I was able to snap the door panel over it even though it protruded some. Also need to include screws to mount speaker to the bracket. I had to run to an auto parts store to get some.

Pros: Better sound

Cons: Challenging installation and missing screws.

HansonT from Florida on 3/17/2015

2009 Chevrolet HHR
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I own a 2009 HHR with cheap Mexican made speakers and all 4 failed after 5 years....BUT, in my case, I disagree with the Crutchfield statement: "The speakers that originally came in your car were......designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience." Well, I love music and these Polks aren't that good. I installed one Polk in the front passenger door, and compared this to the original speaker in the driver door. No comparison. We listened to jazz, rock, jams, reggae and more. The basic original speakers in the HHR kick butt...but they don't last. They corrode and fail...but absolutely sound the best - at loud volumes, soft, across any style of music. PLUS - when you simply replace the original Delco speakers guess what? They FIT the door with no customization, drilling, holes to fill, adapters...none of that monkey business. They fit perfect. Get the original AC Delco speakers people. You wont regret it. Besides, the adapter rings they send you for Polk speakers DO NOT FIT!

Pros: May be fine for a boat - they're water resistant marine speakers.

Cons: They simply do not sound as good as my HHR's original AC Delco car speakers. Less range, less volume, harsher sounding...everything squashed in the middle....AND they do not fit the hole in the HHR door - SO only option for owners? Rip out the bad speakers and reuse the original speaker chassis (lots of work) or just by original replacement speakers.

Crutchfield response on 3/23/2015 It's normal to sometimes hear a drop in volume or intensity when replacing your factory speakers because aftermarket speakers tend to require more power than factory speakers do. That's a side effect of being a better quality speaker. When you placed your order, you might've seen that we also recommend installing foam baffles when you replace the speakers in the HHR. Mind you, we recommend doing this in general to help your new speakers sound their best, but in the HHR, baffles are almost a necessity to help seal the space around the speakers. Those would make a big difference in the quality of the sound you're hearing. Without them, a lot of your music is being dispersed inside the door panel. If you aren't satisfied with the Polk speakers, give us a call. You can return them, exchange them, or try adding a pair of baffles. Whatever you choose, we'll be glad to help - just give us a call.

Pretty Good...

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to replace the stock door speakers in my 2008 FJ Cruiser. I still had the stock head unit. After install I was disappointed to hear how much bass response I actually lost. The stock speakers weren't anything to write home about. From the reviews it looks like the slim version (the ones this review is on) don't have as great bass response and the non-slim versions are better. However, after I replaced my head unit with a better aftermarket one that has 22RMS - the sound improvement was much better. I love the crisp high's and strong mids. These sound better than the pioneer 6x8's I have in my mustang but not as great as the boston acoustic's I had in my Celica.

Pros: Great highs and good mids Slim design - easy to install in FJ

Cons: Does lose bass response like reviews say

OlegB from Texas on 3/15/2015

2012 Subaru Forester
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used them as a replacement for my Forester 2012 factory system. The result was very disappointing: the stock speakers had much better bass, however the mid-range frequencies and the highs are somewhat better. I guess it was a bad idea and total waste of money.

Pros: More clear mid- and high frequencies response

Cons: Bass lower than in stock speakers (even for Forester 2012)

Crutchfield response on 3/16/2015 That's a common reaction when replacing car speakers. What you can expect to hear from a new speaker is better clarity and definition in the mids and highs. So your music will sound better and more lifelike, but you might not hear more bass. The only way to get more bass is to add more power, and if you want to keep the factory radio, that means adding an amplifier. A small (40-50 watts), 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo and three or four times the power of the typical factory radio. That'll improve all the sound, but you'll especially hear it in the fullness of the bass.

Great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The sound couldn't be better. I own a 2008 Acura TL Type-S. I replaced my rear deck speakers and my door speakers with these Polk Audio 6 1/2" speakers. The bracket that comes with them is useless for both locations. For the rear deck get an angle drill (I used a Milwaukee angle for a cordless drill) and drill through the sheet metal (easiest way to get the hole pattern is by using the felt ring that comes with the speaker). Plug in the supplied harness and screw in the speakers (I had to get 1 1/2" screws from the hardware store because the supplied screws are too short). For the door speakers, Crutchfield says that these speakers will not fit. They are wrong! They fit so perfectly I wonder if anyone at Crutchfield actually tried. Once again, the supplied bracket is useless. All you have to do is cut off the tabs that stick up on the factory speaker mount then mount the Polk Audio speakers using the factory screws. Don't forget to plug the wire harness in before you mount the speaker. DONE!

Pros: They fit my car. They sound amazing. They are priced right.

Cons: none.

Easy to install, installed all four speakers in less than three hours. When reading the tricks about using a rag to take off window crank be careful to do this with the door shut will help you contain the clip to put handle back in place if you do it with door open it will shoot off like a rocket. Sound quality is outstanding for acoustics not for bass heads ad a sub and amp. Love these speakers.

Pros: sound great, easy installation, your ears will be happy

Cons: not for bass heads you need a sub for that

Polk Audio 2 Ways

Skip from Stuart's Draft, Va on 1/2/2015

I've had the Polk Audio Components before, so when my daughter got her car it was a no brainer to get her the Polk Audio for her car.

Pros: Sounds great, and are at a great price

Cons: Just need to be able to handle a little bit more power on the RMS's

Perfect Clarity with no distortion.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace some factory speakers that were just so tiny that just did not do sound any justice. I bought a powered sub to go along with these. By the time I had almost everything installed on this car, which this was a major overhaul on the sound system with upgrades, I ran out of daylight and just cleaned everything up to finish in the morning. My wife took her car to the store and the difference between the factory speakers and these was night and day. I have yet to find any distortion on these to see if the claim from Polk is accurate and thus fare their design has surpassed all my expectations. These speakers have extreme clarity. I highly recommend these to replace any factory speakers or to build a system with 6.5's.

Pros: Perfect clarity and with no distortion that I could hear at high volumes.

Cons: None yet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have installed these speakers in a number of vehicles, two Acura TL's 2002 &2003, Jeep Cherokee 1993 and a jaguar XJ6 1995. They are real quality, They really handle the highs and midrange well. The end result in the Acuras was the best due to having the bass handled by a separate sub woofer. I think I should have gone with a different speaker for the jag since it didn't have a sub. The quality of construction is excellent and I like the finish of the tweeter and the speaker materials. In each application I bought the wiring kit to make connecting the to the factory plugs super easy.

Pros: Fit and finish is awesome. The slim design makes it an easy install in a number of different vehicles.

Cons: needs to be paired with a separate sub for optimal application. Plays normal music perfectly but the bass struggles with Rock and Rap. I can't say enough how accurate the sound seems in my Acura's.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed in a 97 Honda Civic with no modification. Factory grilles fit right back over them nicely. I am driving these with a 50RMS x 4 old MTX amplifier I've had for years and they are very loud and clear. The highs do get a bit harsh at ridiculous volume but there's really no reason to push them that hard and they perform adequately at the volume level most will be listening at. Acceptable bass response at lower volumes but you will need to pull some bass out from your EQ if you want them up loud.

Pros: Price & Performance

Cons: A tad harsh at very high volume

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I placed these speakers in my wife's 2008 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4-door, in the dash. Had to practically take the dash apart to get to the boxes that the speakers rest in. But, I got it done, and I'm not what I would call "mechanically inclined". I needed the adapters and the bracket Crutchfield provided, which worked perfectly. Install was otherwise simple. The speakers are providing clear crisp highs with powerful midrange sound. I keep the bass low since all of my bass goes through my subwoofers. The speakers are powered by only the radio's power, no amp, and still the sound is strong and clear.

Pros: Marine certified. Easily installed. Crisp highs and mids.

Cons:

not worth the $$

Frankonwheels from Orlando, FL on 10/7/2014

2013 Kia Rio
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got these for my daughter's Kia Rio, and we couldn't be happier. Solid, genuine acoustic engineering goes into the design of Polk speakers, and it's reflected in their sound...great dynamics and tonal integrity. As far as low frequency performance, I've often read reviews here complaining about bass response of the car speakers they've purchased, manufacturer not withstanding. These folks need to realize that they install these relatively small speakers into doors and side panels, these are typically free-air environments. Without a sealed or vented enclosure behind the speaker, there is nothing to reinforce the low-frequency response...you simply can't expect anything much below around 60 hertz or so in these situations. It's got nothing to do with the brand of speaker, so give 'em a break for crying out loud. I'd also like to mention that I'm paraplegic, and a while back I'd bought a set of Polk db 6x9's to put in the modified van that I drive from my wheelchair. I had a friend of mine install them for me and when he was tightening a screw, the screwdriver slipped and punched a hole in the cone. I called Polk and explained what had happened and asked how much a new speaker would be, since you generally can't buy them individually. He just asked me to give him my address so that he could ship out a replacement speaker for me! That is the kind of customer service that inspires lifelong brand-loyalty. Needless to say, we've got Polk speakers throughout our home and cars.

Pros: Build quality (I don't know why some mfg's still use foam surrounds on their speakers..bound to rot and fall apart), tonal accuracy, great tweeters that never get fatiguing, they just plain sound great

Cons: Nope

PBXTech from Fork, MD. on 10/5/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

2012 2500 Ram Crew rear door replacements. These speakers are a definite improvement over the light 6"x9" factory units. Everything included to make this a 45 minute job start to finish. The speakers sound solid and clear, but an amp would take full advantage of their quality construction. The Polk db651s are Marine rated, so a bit of moisture inside the door shouldn't affect them.

Pros: Good improvement over stock, quality components, Crutchfield supplies ALL needed hardware to install.

Cons: At $65 per pair there is really no downside to these speakers.

Polk Speakers

Don from Tonopah, NV on 9/8/2014

1999 Toyota Tacoma
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers sound great. Contrary to other reviews, there is more than enough bass to satisfy most people. I suspect the people who are criticizing these speakers for lack of bass probably walk around with subwoofers wired to their ears. My only criticism of these speakers is the poor mounting design. Polk's engineers missed the boat on this one! They use four small machined screws to mount the speakers to your brackets. The tiny screw head fit into a C-shaped cut out rather than a hole or oval. Once you tighten them, you better hope they don't slip off the C slot or you have to remount them. Since these are mounted in a truck that will see bumpy desert roads, I'm not impressed with their ability to stand up over time. I had to go to the hardware store and spend $5 on longer screws and tiny washers just to make sure they stay mounted to the brackets. Then I trimmed off the excess screw shank with a Dremel cutoff wheel. If you can live with this, they're great speakers with decent sound.

Pros: Speakers sound great.

Cons: Factory mounting setup is pure garbage. You'll need longer screws of the same type and thin washers to keep the screw heads from slipping out of the cheesy C-shaped mounting "holes".

Fit with no alteration

2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

So far I am pleased with my purchase. They were on sale so I feel that I got a good deal. I bought two pair to install in the doors of a ram quad cab. The magnet on these was bigger than the magnet on the stock 6x9's that came out of the front door, but smaller than the 6.5's that were in the rear doors. I am pleased with the sound. It is brighter an clearer than the stock speakers. They seem louder than the stock speakers. But I seem to get some harsh mids when really cranking the Alpine head unit. Another reviewer complained that these had no bass. They don't and you should not expect them to. I have some 10" polk subs that take care of the bass. One thing I did not like was the way the screw holes were built into the speaker. When tightening the screws it caused to surround to deform. I was not clamping down as tight as I would like. Install was a snap -- my 9-year old was able to get the stock speakers out and screwed the front door speaker in. You can see the gunmetal bronze cones behind the stock speaker grill, they look great. Thanks for the adaptor plates and plugs! That is why I tell my friends to buy from Crutchfield. I was able to get most of the speaker holes to line up with stock mounting holes. I only had to drill one out.

Pros: Fits well, cool look. Bright clean highs. Free installation accessories from Crutchfield.

Cons: Harsh when cranked up. When secured tightly with the screws provided the surround deformed.

Bought these for my daily driver, (80 mile commute to work every day) a 1992 Honda Civic Hatch. Didn't want to put a whole lot of money in it but I wanted decent sound quality. The previous owner had installed Polk's in the rear, so I read reviews on these and I'm extremely pleased! They don't break the bank but I could hear things more clearly, and also some different notes that the old stock speakers couldn't produce. Currently just running off head unit power, but I am curious to see how they do with a decent Amp!

Pros: Crisp sound. Best bang for your buck. Easy to read and follow Instructions (proper english and grammar) Not cheaply made, quality materials.

Cons: None.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installing these speakers in the front doors of my 1997 Honda CR-V was a breeze - took about 10 minutes total with the free wiring adapters. The two main improvements over my 17-year-old(!) factory speakers are: 1) the efficiency - the music is much louder on a given volume setting than before, and 2) no more distortion at any volume level. I can't speak to the bass level as I have previously installed a Kenwood powered subwoofer, but overall the highs and mids sound really good out of these speakers. I am very pleased with the improvements over my stock speakers and recommend these as a great low-profile speaker that will give you rich, full sound.

Pros: Great, balanced sound, easy to install (in a Honda CR-V).

Cons: None

Have an alpine head unit and my next purchase will be the plug and play amp. That should really bring my sound system alive. I will only ever purchase from Crutchfield.

Love these speakers! Fit guide said these were a no go. I was not crazy about the speakers that it came up with so I called customer support. Spoke to Dallas and told him what I wanted and my dilemma. He pulled up all the specs for my car and recommended these. Very minor modification and used the included speaker adapter. All I did was cut the plastic "wagon wheel" from the inside of the factory speaker grille and perfect! Also you can now see the nice gold Polk speaker thru the grille. Nice! Always the BEST customer service at Crutchfield! I really love this car and Crutchfield helped me get it to the next level! Thanks!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to replace the stock ones in my 2012 Hyundai Sonata. I wanted to keep the stock head unit because of all the features it has. Installing the speakers was a breeze. The sound clarity is far superior to the stock 6 1/2's. However the stock system doesn't have enough power to really drive these hard enough to produce any bass. I lost nearly all the bass from the car. That isn't the speakers fault. I would recommend these speakers to anyone who has a system with some power. I just added an Infinity Basslink sub on Crutchfield's opinion to bring back the bass, and now my rock music sounds nearly perfect.

Pros: Great Clarity and easy to install

Cons: Needs a powerful head unit to produce any bass.

Wanted to upgrade speakers because it still had the stock ones, with those I had to turn the bass all the way down and just not good overall sound quality anymore... After installing these I turned up the bass and was really impressed with the sound!! Haven't hit the expressway yet but I can tell I will be able to hear the radio much better now! And they are marine rated so I don't have to worry about rain or washing my bike... Thinking about adding a set to my saddle bags.

Pros: Sound great, priced well, easy to install!

Cons: No complaints...

Polk Audio Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are Great speakers. They have excellent sound quality and are built extremely well. I bought them as I have had Polk home speakers and I was very satisfied with those. Currently they are hooked to the factory radio which sounds good but I plan on upgrading the head. For the price, these speakers are hard to beat. I would highly recommend them and I am planning on buying another set to replace the rears. Thank You Crutchfield

Pros: Great Sound, Great Price, and easy install.

Cons: None

Good upgrade.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Better than factory but much on the mid range side. Tweeters are perfect for my Fit. Need to fill with a sub to round out the range. Overall good upgrade. Installation not as easy as it appeared.

Pros: Good upper range and matched for power out of the factory stereo.

Cons: Mids are a little overpowering and not much bass to speak of. adapters from factory a little tricky.

Got these for my 2006 Tundra DC. They sound awesome compared to stock. They are powered by a Pioneer 25w RMS head unit. The rear install was a breeze, the front was a different story. I would up ripping out the stock front speakers from the plastic mold they were in and installing these in their place. All in all it was pretty easy to do. I cant complain about these speakers one bit. And I definitely cant complain about all the free wire harnesses and adapters Crutchfield sent me.

Pros: Great sound Easy install Quality for the price Decent bass

Cons:

Great sound

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

was going to upgrade the factory sound system in my 06 GTO, decided to do the speakers first. Factory radio kicks now! The entire audio range is significantly better than the stock speakers. Install was straight forward, only had to rewire the polarity on the rears. Great speakers for the price!

Pros: great sound, easy install.

Cons: none

Huge improvement!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used these in the rear of my 99 extended Tacoma and I think I would be just as pleased with them in the front if I hadn't used Polk 6501 components there. For the money they sound great, accurate and alive. If you like more bass get a sub, you would with any speaker. For me they sound really good!

Pros: Huge improvement over stock. You will hear more in your music than before. Buy and Enjoy!

Cons: Uh...they didn't install themselves:)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in the front doors of my '09 Subaru Forester (paired with DB651 in the rear and powered by 22 watt JVC head unit) and they sound so much better than the stock factory speakers. I put them through their paces with a variety of music from driving drums and bass to intricate instrumentals to subtle vocals. Everything sounded tremendous.

Pros: Sound great. Fit well. well made. Much more efficient than factory speakers (produce more sound at the same volume level on the head unit).

Cons: Nothing yet.

2012 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put four of these in my 2012 Jeep Wrangler. The ones in the roll bar enclosure sound decent but the ones in the dash are over driven by bass and sound like they are distorting if much bass or volume is applied. I have the stock head unit with SIRIUS and like my music with more punch than these are able to deliver. I plan to return the dash speakers and get some 6.5" woofers.

Pros: Good mids and highs. Good instructions provided.

Cons: No bass. In fact if you increase the bass too much the dash speakers distort badly.

Sounds great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

While I can't compare these to other speakers, I can say they sound great in my '12 Ram 4-door. I replaced all 4 door speakers with these, and I'm impressed with the ease of installation (thanks Crutchfield) and the sound quality. These seem to be very stout speakers for my intended purpose, and the improvement over factory speakers was immediately noticeable.

Pros: fit the spot perfectly great sound

Cons:

Awesome Sound

Picked up these 6.5's for the front speakers to replace the Bose in my '93 300zx. Wow! They produce awesome sound. Highly recommend.

Pros: Great sound - hi's AND low's sound incredible.

Cons: None.

Good speakers but overpriced.
