Product Description

Amazon.com

Polk's new 2007 db Series is better than ever with superior looks and even better sound--at prices that make high performance affordable to everyone. The db6501 is a 6.5-inch two-way component system that works well in OEM factory systems, as well as with high-powered aftermarket head units and component power amps.

High performance that's affordable to everyone. Click to enlarge.

The butyl rubber surround won't fall apart under the stress of extreme temperatures, sunlight or time.

A vented crossover housing gives you a choice of hidden wire channels for easier, more professional-looking installs.

Marine Certified
Polk db Series speakers are built tough to withstand the toughest environments so they are perfect for use in boats of all types. That's why Correct Craft offers Polk Audio speakers in their award-winning Nautiques ski and wakeboarding boats.

Tweeters
The 25mm liquid-cooled silk/polymer composite dome tweeter with neodymium magnet provide clear, detailed highs.

Flush and surface mount swivel cups allow placement flexibility for soundstage optimization in your vehicle.

Mid/Woofers
The 6.5-inch woofers feature a dynamic balance polymer/mica composite mineral-filled cone, which is stiff yet lightweight, for big sound with little distortion. The butyl rubber surround won't fall apart under the stress of extreme temperatures, sunlight or time, for years of the great Polk sound.

The woofer's low-mass, two-layer 25mm Kapton voice coil former ensures high power handling and great reliability. Although Katpon handles plenty of heat, a pole plate heat sink promotes better heat dissipation.

A flat spider provides faster, longer excursion linear motion, and the flexible woven leads are sewn directly into Spider for greater reliability.

Finally, the backbone--a rock solid, acoustically inert stamped steel basket finished in rustproof Gun Metal Gray.

Installation
The supplied adaptor rings enable the db6501 to fit both 6-1/2-inch and 6-3/4-inch applications, ensuring an easy fit in everything from domestics to imports including VWs and Audis, BMWs and other European imports.

The tough-looking ABS Grilles are computer optimized and based on exclusive MOMO designs, and stainless steel mounting hardware is included.

Crossover
The 2nd-order Butterworth outboard crossover helps get you component system sound at a coaxial price. Electronic tweeter protection keeps your tweeters from accidental abuse for reliable, high-output sound, and the vented crossover housing gives you a choice of hidden wire channels for easier, more professional-looking installs.

These speakers really sound great.
D. Robbins
I did have to make my own mounting brackets from mdf to fit in the huge holes that Toyota has in it's doors.
M. Moyer
When you do have power, they're loud, crisp, clean, have great bass response, and have a very sharp sound.

I did a ton of research before I bought these. I even went to a local shop to compare them to others using my own sound check playlist. The salesman looked at me funny but he let me do my thing. These were by far the best ones I heard, so I ordered them.

I hooked them up to my alpine cde hd138bt hu. The first thing I noticed was the tweeters seemed to be a little brighter in my truck and there was a sharp peak in the high-mids, around 6 to 8k. Nothing a little eq work couldn't fix. That was fine....for most of the time. Sometimes I like to really crank it though, and the 18w rms from the alpine wasn't enough. So, I wired them to an amp that's feeding them 75w rms each. MAN! What a difference! They're supposed to handle 100 rms. You don't need that much. They sound great with the extra power. Fuller lows(you will still need a sub for any real beef... I recommend a new alpine type-r. You'll be hard-pressed to find components that hit super low because they are specifically designed to be augmented by a sub in most cases. I have a single swr823d and plan on a 2nd one). I even flattened my eq because the highs are way flatter and tamed. I can't really put into words how amazing they sound when setup right. I hear snares and runs on toms with amazing definition. Vocals sit just right. Acoustic and electric guitars, cymbals, horns, acoustic and electric bass, cellos and violins....everything. And this is in my poorly insulated Chevy truck with flowmaster super 40's(I like to hear that v8 too ;-) )

So here it is. If you don't plan on putting these on an amp, don't get them, or at the very least install a 22uF cap across the tweeter posts at the xover to tame the high end.

I installed these as a part of the first car audio upgrade I have done since I was in the 10th grade (10 years ago). I wasn't even going to bother with a car audio upgrade unless it could play on the same field as my home stereo. The home stereo is a pair of Polk Monitor 70s, a Denon receiver, and a Martin Logan Dynamo sub. Obviously a tall order.

Powered by an Alpine MRP-F600 amp, these speakers produce excellent, clear sound at any volume. From the inhale of a vocalist to a loud trumpet, at social listening volume to beyond ear-damaging levels, these speakers reproduce the source faithfully.

Installation note: The speaker adapter brackets have a lot of tabs on them to fit a variety of factory mounting points. In some installations you will need to remove the extra tabs so they don't interfere with the door panel. THESE TABS EASILY SNAP OFF BY HAND! I was a dope and didn't realize this at first, so instead of snapping the tabs off I spent 20 minutes making a mess cutting them off with a Dremel. =D

About 3 months ago, I decided that I'd had enough of my factory car speakers in my 2008 Toyota Prius. I haven't replaced speakers in my cars for years so I didn't want to do the whole rewiring/amp/equalizer/etc deal. I simply wanted to replace the stock speakers with better ones. After a couple of weeks of research, I chose these over Boston Acoustics, Pioneer and Infinity because of the sensitivity rating and price.

Before I get on with how great these are, let me explain how bad the old ones were. The stock speakers suffered bad "motorboating"...you know, when a bass heavy piece of music causes the speakers to make a fluttering sound like a motorboat engine. This was a daily occurence, even with the base kicked down two pips. I also had to kick the treble up two pips. Still, the treble was severe. Songs like Alanis Morisette's "Citizen of the Planet" were almost impossible to listen to because the lows were too quiet and the parts where the bass kicked in overpowered the speakers immediately. Once I pulled the stock speakers out, it was evident why they sounded so terrible. The magnets on them were slightly less than an inch in diameter and I couldn't find anything that would actually stick to them.

okay, back to the polk audio's. Installation went pretty easy. I did have to make my own mounting brackets from mdf to fit in the huge holes that Toyota has in it's doors. The tweeters fit nicely in the same place as the stock tweeters were. After the install, I was able to put the treble and bass back to flat. Initially, the bass seemed to be a little week and I was concerned that I would have to put an amp in to correct it. After about a month though, it seemed like the speakers started to loosen up. Now, the sound is great.

I initially loved the speakers. However, one failed just shy of 6 months and Polk refused to honor their warranty. Their reasoning was that Amazon.com, nor the third party vendors selling through Amazon.com, are approved resellers. As a result, everyone should be aware that Polk will not warranty these.

This information came to me from Polk Customer Service Representative Matthew Heinecke.

Amazon.com has since then issued me a full refund of my purchase. I just thought it important that future customers are informed of the lack of manufacturer warranty because the product page states that they have a 1 year warranty. This is not the case. Polk will not honor any warranty for these speakers.
