Polk Audio db650
6-1/2" 2-way car speakers
Certified for marine use
Our take on the Polk Audio db650 by Crutchfield's Todd Cabell
Polk is a speaker company, first and foremost experts in designing and building speakers that give you top end performance, even at middle-of-the-road prices! And check out the cutting-edge looks, too textured woofer cones and MOMO-inspired, wheel-style grilles add the right touch if you're customizing your ride.
The db650 6-1/2" speaker combines a polymer/mica composite woofer with a rubber surround to keep the midbass crisp and clean. You'll enjoy the smooth high-frequency reproduction of the liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite 3/4" dome tweeter. And, instead of the high-pass filter found in most car speakers, a built-in 2-way crossover network sends the appropriate frequencies to each driver for cleaner sound and better imaging. Don't limit these speakers to your car they've passed tough environmental testing that certifies them for marine use as well.

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 Certified: Polk db Series speakers are built to withstand exposure to moisture and UV rays, so they work well in boats and cars.
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.
Silk/Polymer Composite Tweeters: The 3/4" liquid-cooled, silk/polymer composite tweeters provide clear, detailed highs.
2-way Crossover Network: The built-in 2-way crossover network sends the appropriate frequencies to each driver for cleaner sound and better imaging.
