Honed Polk perfection

These DB 522 2-way speakers feature a 5-1/4" polypropylene woofer cone with a strong rubber surround for solid playback and resilience under the environmental stress that comes with living in your car doors. A 3/4" silk dome tweeter delivers smooth highs with precision to give you a vibrant soundstage, while a built-in crossover keeps the highs and lows flowing to the proper drivers.

For custom installation

Polk includes mounting hardware, along with boldly designed grilles that add flare to your vehicle's interior if you're doing a custom installation.

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
I have a 2007 street Glide , Do these speakers need a special attachment to install in the Fairing ?
[ Christopher  Mar 05, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
No; they will not need a special attachment. If you plan to connect to the original factory stereo, the 4 Ohm impedance may be an issue though.

Q
The receiver on my boat only puts out 40w per channel. Is this enough to power these speakers?
[ Nick  Mar 06, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
not sure, but I think it would be ok
[ John  Mar 06, 2018 ]
A
Yes. 40w will power this speaker. You may hear some distortion at higher volumes though without an amp.
[ David  Mar 06, 2018 ]
Q
what amp is best for the Polk DB22? I have a Jeep Wrangler 2006 and looking to get more sound in there. hard to hear radio when driving with top down.

I'm tempted to tell you to get a marine grade amp and speakers if you spend a significant amount of time with the top off. I made the mistake of not putting my top on and it poured. Probably dropped 3" of rain in under an hour. When I started my Jeep I fried the amp. Get 4 speakers with synthetic cones and surrounds and don't forget to replace the tweeters with something similar.

The DB522 is awesome in my Convertible Mustang. It keeps the highs and the lows in perfect synchronicity

Hi Anthony, I can try to help you. I got the Polk speakers for my 1979 Jeep. I have no top, so the speakers are exposed to the weather. They have been through many storms and I have had NO problems! They have excellent sound quality. With no top, I have to crank the stereo way up and they put out great sound at high volume!! Hope this helps
[ Michael  Jun 22, 2017 ]
