Summary: These speakers are my first purchase and i was not disappointed at all. I bought these speakers for a project that i am making. The speakers have excellent crisp sound and are very loud. I will very much be buying polk audio speakers from now on.
Summary: Had to make mods to my Corolla wagon to install these larger speakers into the front doors, but well worth it! The DB521's would have fit right in, BTW. They sound FANTASTIC!!!solid bass right up to distortion level due to not enough wattage from the head unit...Clear, balanced mids and highs...The Marine rating will pay off in the long haul, as I live in a rain forest! Mounted a set of DB401's in the back..
Polk Audio 6.5" speakers **** Excellent speakers with AMAZING clarity
11 July 2013
Summary: Love my Polk Audio 6.5"!!! I was looking around and went into a old family owned speaker shop locally. After exchanging many stories he informed me of the Polk audio speakers and how they have spread from just home audio. After a demo I was hooked! The clarity of these speakers are amazing and incomparable to any other I have heard, and I've heard many!
Summary: I purchased these speakers because of their fantastic reputation for imperviousness to water since I was planning on useing them in a Harley Davidson stereo system upgrade. I spoke to other friends who have used them and read reviews before making a final decision on which speakers to use. I am extremely happy with my choice and if my long range satisfaction is half as good as my experience so far, I'll be using these in all of my Harley installs.
Summary: after reading many reviews i decided to buy these(never used polk before this) to replace the factory speakers in my 2012 malibu(db 651s in the front and db651 in the rear deck),even on the factory head unit they are much clearer and cleaner then the factory speakers, plus its nice to be able to direct the tweeters to hear the highs better,but they do need more power to get the full sound, so i replaced the head unit with a jvc kw-r800bt and now there 100% better, im not...
Summary: These are great speakers given you have a proper amp to push them properly. Without the amp they are going to be usless. Better than alot of higher end speakers for much lower costs. I would buy again... and yes they are quite shallow mounting.
Summary: Speakers are great! I'm happy with the purchase. Sound great easy install. I went for the marine speakers as I have a habit of driving in the rain with my top down. I don't have to worry about these speakers! Everything you would expect from a great company like Polk audio.
