Crutchfield customer from Shelby, NC on 5/19/2019

1987 Cadillac Brougham

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These products have not yet been installed but they are packaged nicely and presumably will be a good companion to the Polk 6x9 installed on the rear deck. These were purchased as replacements for the Infinity Kappa 4x6 front deck speakers which unfortunately had their voice coils damaged by my failure to use a high-pass filter while playing them too loud. I will install these with a 24 dB/octave HPF rolling off below 125 or 250 Hz, depending on the recommendation of the manufacturer. Remove the dash on the 1987 Cadillac Brougham is a colossal pain in the derriere that I do not wish to repeat. These speakers get a five review based on the excellent performance of their big brothers which I've already auditioned, and I don't want to wait until I've heard these to get my inbox cleared of this review request.

I installed in the front dash of my 1997 Chevy Blazer. They sound really good. They are running just off of deck power along with 2 pairs of JVC 6 1/2 Compnonents in the 4 doors. THe sound is awesome! I cannot wait to add my sub and ammp to these speakers. I feel like a kid again.

I will have to give a 3 star the speakers sound good but nothing to exciting in the sound wish it had a more bass sound it tends to be on the midrange level and high. Overall a easy install but the master sheet I got was for more replacing the reciever.

Pros: Good sound, good quality, midrange to high level

Cons: Not alot of bass, need a subwoofer if you want any bass

Great sound for a 4 X 6 set of speakers.

Crutchfield customer from Independence, VA on 2/8/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers replaced the original ones in my 1988 Chevy pickup. As expected, the sound improvement was great. No thundering bass but, for 4 X 6 speakers, the sound is surprisingly crisp and enjoyable.

Pros: Accurate, crisp music reproduction.

Cons: A little weak on bass, but still quite good for this size speaker. I will be adding a subwoofer.

Crutchfield customer from Ashland, WI on 9/4/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Only surface mount "fasteners" included. Stainless steel screws? Not quite. Can't get "optional" fasteners such as spacers, etc. These speakers come with cheap fasteners and at this price? Typical American company today - a "box of chocolates." Who knows what you'll get. Crutchfield used to be good. Not anymore. A big disappointment. Not typical of what Polk Audio used to represent.

Pros: Speakers.

Cons: Everything else.

The right speakers, at the right price, at the right time.

Gregory from Orlando, FL on 5/12/2018

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Just now completed installing these in the rear pillars of a 2000 Silverado 1500 Regular Cab P/U - They sound great. Especially being paired with a set of Polk DB 652 speakers in the front. These four speakers, working in harmony, deliver a well-balanced sound throughout a rather small area. No need for a subwoofer as this set-up delivers all the bass necessary, unless you must go sonic, then by all means, go for it. Installation was a tad more difficult than anticipated given the confined workspace and all the trim panels that had to be removed to access the actual speaker install location. Expect to have to replace some of the trim fasteners on the trim strip panel located just below the rear window. Careful, these metal trim fasteners are very pointed and quite sharp. There will be blood. The install instructions provided were okay but they failed to mention the two screws that fasten the rear pillar trim panel to the area behind the trim strip panel located below the rear window. Easy enough to figure out by looking, but a heads-up would be beneficial. Also, it's important to take your time when putting the rear pillar trim panels back into place so as not to damage the newly installed and very much exposed speakers. As always, clean the removed trim pieces and test the speakers before buttoning up. In summary: these are the right speakers, at the right price, at the right time.

Pros: Well-rounded sound, especially when matched with Polk DB652 speakers.

Cons: The rear pillar install is a tad more difficult than you might expect.

Not enough bass.

Michael J. from Lansing, MI on 4/29/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers did not provide enough bass, and did not fit properly in the rear doors of my 2006 Chevy Silverado extended cab. 4x6 don't provide enough bass anyway. Decided to go with 6x9 speakers inside 6x9 speaker boxes on the floor of my truck, and it is a BIG improvement! Sent the 4x6 speakers back for a refund.

Fast shipping. Easy install. Great sound. Only complaint is they don't come with grilles. I put these in a 1994 Chevy Silverado. When I removed the factory grilles they were so old and brittle they broke apart. I wish Polk had something that would cover the speaker, it is only a matter of time until they get destroyed.

Pros: Great sound. Easy install.

Cons: No grilles.

As always, Crutchfield makes the sale easy and the installation as well. These speakers are way better than the Jeep originals, and I am only giving 4 stars as the sound is a little muddy, but it may be the new tuner that has a complicated equalizer.

These speakers sound great! Huge improvement over the old stock units in my truck. Didn't come with any mounting spacers.

Pros: Better frequency range Quality built

Cons: Speakers did not come with any mounting spacers and they were slightly oversized for the door cutouts without them. Fortunately I was able to use some stock 1/8 inch spacers to mount them securely.

Pros: Bang for the buck quality

I ordered the Polk DB462 speakers not long ago for a friend's Jeep. The job was very straight forward, and I appreciated how easy Crutchfield made it for the installation process. The sound produced was great, especially when the top was off and there was airflow. Still good quality sound. Well done, Polk.

2003 Silverado Extended cab, OEM with Bose system, used these in rear doors. very pleased. Had to drill 4 holes for each. Used 1/8 bit, screws were included with speakers, used the add-on foam baffles. Easy install, sounds great.

Pros: easy install, sounds great.

Cons: none really. Except no speaker grills come with these, had I needed speaker grills would have not been able to use these speakers.

Put these in the rear of my 96 Chevy truck and the low end sucks! Same as the ones i put in the front, good mids and highs but puke out on the low end. Again my fault for not doing my homework and listening to the salesmen. Again not really any better than the stock GM speakers. Giving some serious thought about returning all 4 for them, just thinking about the work i put into installing them. Driving me crazy!!! Not happy at all.

A definite improvement over the stock 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon speakers. Allows better sound at a much higher volume. My only complaint is that I wish it had a little better tweeters. I really like crisp & tinny highs; however, it is close to where I like it.

Pros: Super easy upgrade, better quality sound at hi-way speeds

Cons:

In dash speaker

CartersvilleGA from Cartersville, GA on 7/25/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speakers sound great. I recently installed a new alpine receiver and it made the the old factory speakers sound a lot better. Almost didn't buy new speakers, but I'm glad I did. These new Polk speaker are way louder, crisper, and brighter than the original. They have been rained on several times and no change in performance. I would recommend these to a friend.

Pros: Sound quality, ease of install and price.

Cons: The replacement mounting brackets are a little big. I used some insulation foam tape to eleminate any potential vibration.

I bought these speakers to replace the original factory speakers in my pickup.the fit was perfect and they gave me free wire harness adapters and instructions on how to take my door panels off. The speakers sound great. On front and rear speakers plus adapters and installation I saved $179. Im very pleased and will definitely shop here again.

Pros: Good sound, easy to install

Cons: none

Good speaker upgrade for a Jeep Wrangler

SoundmanNH from Wilton, NH on 7/3/2016

1997 Jeep Wrangler

These replaced the stock factory speakers in the front lower dash panels. The sound improvement is very noticeable. Higher frequency response, and more precise sound quality.

Pros: Excellent high and mid frequency response. Good imaging.

Cons: Very little bass response. These speakers seem a bit over priced for what they offer in sound improvement. But the speaker size imparts a physical limitation on lower frequency response. I'd give them a 5 if they were half the price I paid for them.

Product Research

Features

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 Certification: Polk speakers are marine certified, 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 and crossover components are not covered, we do not recommend using them in salt water environments.

Q
how is the bass in the db 462s?
[ Jackson  Feb 09, 2018 ]

I have had these for a while in the back of my 92 Vette and they sound great. The bass comes through nicely and I can kick it up quite well without distortion. This is only amplified by my Pioneer 4200 NEX head unit.

Sorry, can't really answer about bass from these speakers. I have 2 of the rockford fosgate sub boxes under my rear seat for most of my bass(coupled with their own amp). These are installed in my back doors. They do seem to play loud and clear.
[ Jim  Feb 09, 2018 ]

Good brand!! The bass in these polk speakers is really nothing special though and I have been a polk enthusiast with towers and surrounds in my home theater. Also, I generally have subs to most effectively round out the low-end, so maybe I've grown accustomed to that. The car with these polks had no sub which could be my bias.
