Product Research

Features

Marine Certification: Polk DB+ series speakers are marine certified (IP56 rated), making them a good choice for boats in fresh water, convertibles, motorcycles, ATVs, and other applications where the speaker might get wet. Because they have coated steel baskets and the terminals are not covered, we do not recommend using them in salt water environments.

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.

Sealed Box Volume: Polk recommends a sealed enclosure between 1.0 ft³ and 2.4 ft³.

Ported Box Volume: Polk recommends a ported enclosure between 1.25 ft³ and 1.75 ft³.

Q
Can someone confirm what the overall outer diameter is? The manual lists the cutout size and the driver compliment size, but doesn't mention the overall diameter.

Q
I had purchased one of these a while back and recently have experienced problems. I had discovered that intermittently there was no sound from the sub. When the cone is pushed in the speaker starts to work and occasionally would continue to operate. I removed the driver from the cabinet and found the braided wire from the terminal to the voice coil had broken off. Is there a warranty for this?
