Not sure if it was worth it.

Crutchfield customer from Orange, CA on 9/14/2020

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

These were used to replace the stock speakers on a Kawasaki Voyager 1700 because the DB521 is no longer available. I did not replace the head unit or add an amp. They do sound better than the stock speakers, I thought there would be a lot better. They are slightly less efficient than the DB521 so there is more volume loss, and bass response is just average; I thought it would be better. Would I do it again? Not sure.

Pros: A clearer sound than stock speakers

Cons: not sure if it was worth it

Amazing Bass For The Speaker Size

Crutchfield customer from Marshall, TX on 8/15/2020

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

These sound amazing. At first I thought the 5 1/4" wouldn't give much bass given that they are replacing stock 6x9 speakers. However, my sub was unhooked by accident and I honestly thought that the bass on the speakers was really good. It was clean and defined bass rather than muddy and the mids and highs are very crisp. I'm hearing things in my music I didn't realize was there. I've replaced all four of my door speakers with these and I am very pleased!

Pros: Crisp mids and highs. Great bass for their size.

Cons:

Replacing some older speakers in the overhead speaker bar that were beginning to sound tinny. The speakers didn't mate to the stock grill very well, I broke one screw out while trying to install. But it was an easy install with the Polk grills, which required no modification. The speakers have a full mid range sound that I like. In fact I was thinking of replacing the 10 year old Pioneer head unit but after rebalanceing for the new speakers I'll just leave it in place.

2008 Toyota 4Runner

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

Replacement rear door speakers for 08 4Runner keeping factory head unit (non-JBL). They sound awesome and pair nicely to the component Rockfords installed on front doors. Love the peel and stick "Polk" labels so you can keep stock grills and still let it be known you appreciate good audio products! Wish other manufacturers did that as it's a classy touch. If they thought of the little things then it's no surprise they have earned the reputation that they have.

Pros: Great sounding, excellent value, POLK audio peel and stick labels for factory grills

Cons: None.

These were a direct fit replacement in my 1989 BMW 325. They were easy to install. They are only 5 1/4 so expectations should be set and realistic. To get the best sound I'm going to keep going and get a separate sub. Depending on sound, perhaps go full circle and get an amp for these speakers - based on the sound and brand, I'm sure they would do well with more power.

These speakers sound great in the my 2005 Jeep Wrangler. I had a bit of a install issue. The speakers did not fit flat into the sound bar. I could not use the factory grills or the mounting screws that came with them. Had to fabricate a spacer and purchase longer screws. Used the aftermarket speaker covers. Not too big of a problem. The speakers sound great and look great and work well with the kenwood I purchased with them.

Pros: Sound great

Cons: Bit of a install issue

Pros:

Crutchfield response on 5/27/2020
We're sorry you're disappointed with your speakers. Many aftermarket speakers, like these Polks, often require more power to be effective, even at low volumes. Aftermarket car stereos often don't have the power output to do aftermarket speakers justice. You can add an amplifier (a small, 40-50 watts, 4-channel amp can supply twice the power of an aftermarket stereo) or return these and get speakers with a higher sensitivity. Either way, we'll be glad to help - just give us a call.

A great improvement over my OEM speakers that should have been retired a few years back. Everything I needed was in the box, spent a short time in the afternoon to replace. Great sound, crisp highs. I can again enjoy music in the car.

2010 Ford F-150 XL

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

I installed 4 of these in our family's pontoon and the sound is outstanding! I have it paired up with a kenwood 328bt marine head unit. They are so crisp and have plenty of low end where you can feel the floor on the boat vibrating some. These had the most frequency range in the available size and it shows. I ordered them 5/12 in the evening and received them 5/14 in the afternoon and had everything installed before supper so S/O to Crutchfield on shipping and customer service during COVID season!!!! These were on sale and I had a hard time finding exact replacements for the pontoon and these were perfect. They are marine rated so that's what I'm using them as so I'm hoping they hold up to the weather in upstate SC with the boat in the water most of the summer. I'll get some pictures this weekend and add them to this. THANKS CRUTCHFIELD!!!

speakers sound great and fit well in the factory door locations, with some mild stretching of the plastic (like thick plastic drop cloth) behind the speaker location in the door for the slightly larger magnet. door cards easily fit back in place after install

Pros: sounds great, an upgrade over factory speakers

Solid budget option speaker set

Crutchfield customer from Roswell, GA on 4/29/2020

2015 Volkswagen Jetta

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

I installed these in the rear doors of my 2015 VW Jetta and they sound pretty good. I originally had them hooked up to my Pioneer head unit using the factory wire adapters, but recently hooked them up to my MTX amp pushing 80 watts per channel at 4 ohms each. They sound much better when pushed with the amplified power. The highs are crisp, but the lows lack ever so slightly, probably due to the smaller 5.25 inch woofers. Overall I think these speakers are a solid purchase when building a system on a budget, like myself. I think these Polks will last quite a while in my car. Definitely recommend if you don't want to go crazy and get some high-end Focals or Infinitys.

Pros: Solid speaker set option for the price. Budget Friendly. Fantasitc high frequency response. Easy installation.

Cons: Low frequency response could be better.

4 stars they sound real good. I thought that they would be a huge upgrade from the factory speakers in my 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, But they are just a little bit better. Not really that much difference.

Pros: They sound good, Not Great

Cons: Speaker grills do not fit the sound pods on the roll bar on my 2006 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I'll have to cut them down a bit in order for them to fit.

Replaced stock 4x6 speakers in dash with these 5.25 in my 98 Jeep Wrangler. These sound great but do lack bass. I put my Sony receiver on Megabass and still not enough bass. I was a bit disappointed.

Pros: Upper range is good

Cons: No bass at all

Used these marine rated speakers to replace factory ones on the rear two of my 2018 Yamaha Star Venture Transcontinental. They sound great and have added the presence of bass, although not a ton. The 5.25 in fir perfectly after slightly reaming of the speaker brackets for larger diameter bolts.

They sound excellent. It was actually an easy swap out from the original factory speakers. I have followed the growth of Polk speakers since their beginning. I have always been impressed with their sound. This fact made it an easy choice for my speaker replacement. Their SDA RTA tower speakers were a great step up in sound reproduction and opened the "door" to REALISTIC sound. Keep up the good work. In case there was any doubt....I DO recommend these speakers.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: None apparent.

Love these speakers I've consistently got my rig in damp locations and have found on other vehicles that marine grade speakers sound better longer than anything else. Ended up replacing these with the 6.5" version in my rear doors and tailgate for a more well rounded sound but all in all a really great durable speaker, especially when you consider the price.

I had a set of Polk audio DB 5 and 1/4 inches back in the 90s in my Miata and I love them. I just installed these in a 1990 Porsche 944 S2 cabriolet and it changed my driving experience. The soundstage it's hard to get correct in a convertible these do a very good job of giving me some bass, the highs are good. I would recommend he's to anyone that wants a really good speaker at a very good price. For those of you who have a car like mine these will fit in the space underneath the armrest with little to no modification to the door card.

Pros: All pros. Easy to install and they fit perfectly

Cons: None that I can see as far as my application

These Polk speakers were installed in the lower door of a 2011 Mini Cooper-S, they have a nice sound, but they are a little light on the bass.

Pros: Polk quality, alway good.

Cons: The supplied speaker brackets did not fit, Crutchfield does not have any wire harnesses and no vehicle specific instruction. On-line search provided the necessary details along with instructions on how to use the factory speaker as a bracket (see attached picture) for the aftermarket speaker and the identification of factory speaker wires. If I can find this on-line why can't Crutchfield document it?

Too bright, no low end, harsh. What a bummer to spend the time installing and not be able to stand them. The highs are offensively too bright; have to turn treble settings all the way down. Don't know where they get 55Hz, sounds like 550Hz. Missing frequencies become very apparent and distracting. Bought from Crutchfield for their support and now have to pay return shipping.

Everything was included to facilitate the installation on my Harley and even sent me a video on how to get to the spot to install them. All in all, it was a most satisfying experience.

Clear crisp sound. Zero bass. I think these have less bass than the factory speakers I removed. I understand they are only 5.25" speakers, but to have little to no bass was a surprise to me. It could be that they are being driving by a Kenwood head unit and I need to upgrade to an Alpine - but I'm not sure. Obviously a subwoofer system will fix it.

Pros: Clean, crisp audio. Easy install. Brackets made them fit without modifications.

Cons: Zero bass.

I replaced the front dash speakers in my 2001 Jeep TJ with these and, although it improved the sound, it is nowhere near what I hoped for. Good sound but still weak compared to the sound bar. Even though these fit the stock sound bar, I chose not to use them in that location and I am really glad I made that choice as they don't have the oomph I was looking for.

Pros: Good clear sound but still small. Easy installation. Definite improvement over stock Jeep speakers

Crutchfield customer from Chattanooga, TN on 4/14/2019

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These are ok. They were brighter and fuller than stock speakers but still lack depth. I tried them on head unit but later upgraded to an external amp. They fumble with bass and blurr with too much volume. So if you are looking to just replace blown factory and don't have a lot of expectations they will do fine. They are a perfect upgrade for the price but for a bit more money you can achieve a much better sound.

Pros: Water resistant Low power needed Better then stock

Cons: Lack brilliance and depth. Can't handle too much power or volume.

Followed advice of the Wrangler forum guys and put Polk DB522's in front and sound bar, It has aftermarket receiver, but speakers do sound very clear , I used poly fill behind all, speaker cover or grill looks great..

Pros: Minimal skill required, had to do some mod in front dash but take your time. They fit just like I had expected, delivery was quick with all I needed..

Cons: Now I'd like to get a new receiver..ha

speakers went in with very little work for the front. needed to re-drill the holes for the back speakers but they did fine. Still needing to run new wire to the rear speakers, but the front sound great.

Pros: easy to install

Cons: have to run new wiring for the rear in order to use with the power amp

Crutchfield customer from Tuscaloosa, AL on 12/5/2018

2003 Jeep Wrangler

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

Purchased for 2003 Jeep wrangler front dash. These speakers replaced my original factory speakers. They have a clearer sound than the factory speakers but are not any louder and have less bass. My factory speakers were two ways and in a built in enclosures. To be fair I am only pushing 17 watts to the speakers and they really require more to get the full potential out of them. I have a Sony head unit but will be upgrading to something with blue tooth and more power soon. I have a pair of Kickers in the soundbar and they perform better with low power than the Polks. I may try putting some speaker mats around these also.

Pros: Cost, easy install thanks to wiring harness and mounting plate supplied by Crutchfield

Cons: Not really a con but as with any quality aftermarket speaker you will need an amp to see the real potential of the speakers.

I wish I could say it sounded good. Unfortunately it didn't, if not a little worse than my 14 year old factory speakers. Just to be fair, I upgraded my head unit as well (DEH-S5120BT) and compared my old and new 2 pairs (front and rear) of Polk speakers. Kudos to Crutchfield for fast service and supplying necessary accessories made the installation a breeze. I will be keeping the speakers just because not worth the trouble returning, but IMO, don't consider this model as an upgrade, I do not recommend.

Pros: None

Cons: Speakers didn't come with gasket and factory nor Polk supplied grill doesn't fit.

If you own a 2002 dodge dakota reg cab, these speakers will not fit they are too small. When I uninstalled the factory speaker from the driver side door I noticed that they they were larger and measured 6 1/2". In my defense this was my first time installing aftermarket speakers my planning could have been better I should have measured the stock speakers before placing my order.

Pros: They look great

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

I put in a daily driver ( 04 Subaru Forester XT ) to minimize the miles/gas/extended warranty on my truck. Doors get a significant amount of water in them, so I chose these. For the price I couldn't be happier. Well worth it, & with only after market head unit pushing them, the bass is better than with the rear stock " sub ". AS WITH MOST SPEAKERS, FINDING THE RIGHT TUNING IN YOUR SETTINGS allows for adequate bass. Definitely would buy again (3rd time).

Pros: Marine certified.

Cons: None

So far a vast improvement over stock! The adapters crutchfield includes (thank you Crutchfield!) fit perfect in my Jeep TJ dash no trimming or modifications required. Currently only pushing them with the head unit, will be amping up the power here soon, pun intended, and we'll see how it goes. These are already way clearer than the factory paper jobs that I had, very crisp clean sound under low power, can't wait to see how they wake up once driven With some real power.

Pros: Clear crisp Sound, cost

Great sounding speakers with impressive clarity. There isn't much low end (it could be largely due to my vehicle's setup), so you may want/need a small sub to balance out the sound. For my application, they required "speaker pods" (or baffles), but that's a consequence of the location in my vehicle, not the speakers.

Pros: Marine Certified Fairly Well Priced Clear

Cons: May require a subwoofer

Installed these in place of my old Mopar 13 year old paper speakers. No noticeable difference. Basically a waste of money.

Pros: None.

Cons: Not better than cheap originals.

Crutchfield response on 9/4/2018
Aftermarket speakers, like these Polks, often require more power to be effective. Factory radios often don't have the power output to do aftermarket speakers justice. When distortion occurs, many times it can be mistaken as a problem with the speakers, but it can actually be a weak amplifier, like the one in a factory radio, having trouble delivering the power that the speakers require. This is when upgrading the radio or adding an amp really allow speakers to sound their best, especially in open-air vehicles, like Jeeps. Our Tech Support specialist, Jason, reached out to Jim to help him further, or set up a return for these speakers.

Verified customer (What's this?)

Good replacement for the stock 2018 Jeep Compass. Adapter and connector good fit just need to enlarge holes so stock screws can be used. Also when securing speaker to the adapter spend the money on small bolt/washer/lock washer/nut, the screws that come with speakers are useless. Also don't waste your money on the tools because I did and they were useless on the Jeep Compass door.

Pros: Very clear sound, crisp. easy to install.

Cons: skip the tool purchase. slight modification may be need in securing to door (that's by choice)

Not much change with stock radio, but really nice with Sony MegaBass

Bill from Hamtramck, MI on 5/20/2018

2004 Honda Civic

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

I put these in my 2004 Civic (rear speakers) first, and then replaced the stock head unit with a Sony WX-GS920BH a couple weeks later. With the stock radio, the treble improved in the back, but that was about it. When I turned it up, it gave an unhealthy, almost-clipping sound just as easily as the stock front speakers. The better head unit went in last night, and at first, these still weren't a big change from the stock speakers in the front. As I was playing with the settings, though, I tried the MegaBass. I was a bit hesitant, with the little 5.25" (seemed smaller when I held them) speaker and no sub, yet, but it was a night and day difference. Not a hint of clipping up to louder than I want to play them and, while the volume increase was about the same in front and back, these were suddenly dramatically crisper than the stock speakers up front.

Pros: Sony MegaBass loves them. Nice treble.

Cons: Not a big change from the stock speakers, *if* you keep the stock head. A lot smaller than the stock rear speakers on a 2004 Civic.

Bought these for my 2015 Kawasaki Vaquero. I first replaced the stock OEM's with the METRIX KVR52's. They definitely sounded better but these POLK DB522's sound even better than those. The fit is direct. The terminals are just a bit off size but a quick light crimp and they are fine. As always, CRUTCHFIELD is perfect to deal with. Chad in the chat recommended these. The open box price was even better because you don't use the POLK grills. The OEM fit right back on

I love my new speakers! They fit my 04 PT Cruiser in the front doors. Factories were a piece of "s" and barely even worked. These are a 1000% better. Deep bass and crystal clear sound......oh and I still have my stock radio. It feels like I am running a small amp to them. Can't wait to replace my rear pillar speakers with these.

Pros: Powerful. Solid bass and crystal clear highs

Cons: The info sheet didnt come with the bracket install but I figured it out.

Great price point, great sound quality and low profile, which was what I was looking for. I also really love the fact that they are "weather resistant." I am confident that they can go the distance in my 4WD vehicle, that sees some extreme conditions. I did not use the grill, as the speaker had to sit behind my truck's door panel.

Very nice speakers. Highs are clear, midrange is not at all boomy. Lows are as expected from this size speaker. Notable is they are very tight fitting on an existing 5.25" opening making them difficult to install.

Pros: Sound.

Cons: Slightly oversized.

Great sound! Easy installation. Work horse speaker that puts out quality-- even with a factory stereo unit. Will be upgrading to an amp and new head unit. Can't wait to put the DB522's through their paces with that new set up. Buy with confidence. Best deal out there on a quality speaker.

Pros: Performance, price. Best improvement you could make on a sound system--especially for the price.

Cons: Didn't buy them sooner

Muddy midrange, good bass

Marshall from West Jordan, UT on 11/15/2017

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

These speakers definitely crank at 100W, but the midrange needs a lot of work. I did a measurement sweep on these drivers and you can see the crossover needs a lot of work. The midrange sounds muddy and not clear at all listening levels. The highs are a little harsh, but can be tuned down a little bit. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get the midrange to sound balanced. The bass is good though.

Pros: Loud, good bass

Cons: muddy midrange, phase issues

Great Replacement Speakers for RV

Chris from Jarrettsville, MD on 7/14/2017

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

First a blurb on Crutchfield - it's really nice to be able to talk with a knowledgeable human being when trying to identify the best option for a given application. Paul couldn't have been more helpful, and as a result, there were no surprises with this purchase or subsequent installation....except that the speakers were delivered only 20 hours from completion of the order! As for the speakers, they are everything one might expect from Polk Audio speakers of this size and they put the original speakers that came with the RV to shame in every way. They handle more power than the stock Jensen receiver can put out, have a much wider response range than the old speakers, and sound fantastic regardless of volume (i.e. no distortion). It rained less than 8 hours after installation, and these marine speakers installed outside of the RV sounded just as good wet as they sounded when dry. There were some minor challenges in the actual installation, but none a result of any issues with the speakers. While the 4 speaker mounting holes allow for some leeway to line-up with existing mounting holes, the mounting screws on the separate grille just fit those holes so there is no flexibility there. I was able to hit at least 2 existing holes, and everything fit nicely into place. I caulked the outer plastic ring on the back of the speakers to keep water out of the mounting ring. Properly installed, the speakers are now securely mounted on the RV and should provide years of enjoyment.

Pros: Speakers are well made, attractive, competitively priced, easy to install, and sound great. Paul at Crutchfield was extremely helpful in identifying options that would work for my application. Speakers were delivered 20 hours from completion of the purchase!

Cons: Required some customization to fit existing mounting rings, but not a problem.

These speakers are perfect fit for any late model FLH Harley Davidson touring motorcycle! My bike is a 2004 FLHTCUI, they fit in the front fairing speaker location perfect without any modifications period. And the very best part, they fit into the shallow rear speaker boxes on the tour pack. That allows you to use the original speaker cover and mounting screws. I did have to modify the speaker mounting tabs with a metal file. The mounting tab on the speakers are square, they will need to be rounded off with the metal file so it will fit inside the round speaker box lip. After that your jamming! I also shouldn't leave out, that these speakers are a bargain for the price. All other speakers that proclaim to fit in a Harley Davidson are $200.00 bucks a pair and you will have to alter the bike in some way to make them fit. I did a little home work, and saved money and time! Thanks Crutchfield!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: They fit in my 2004 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI with very minimal modifications.

Cons: There are none in my opinion!

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. It would of been perfect it came with the sticky rope caulk to help the installation and sealing like the OEM speaker did.

Sounds good in 07 tacoma

Thomas from Barstow, CA on 3/26/2017

2015 Honda Accord

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

Great mids and highs for a 5 1/4 speaker. However I wish the speaker would of fit the speaker brackets a bit better in my rear doors on my 07 tacoma access cab. It would of been nice to be able to stuff a bigger speaker in that location such as a 6 1/2 or even a little bigger. Since back space was not an issue just the hight of the top of the speaker an touching the door panels.

Pros: Straight forward install with included wire harnesses and speaker brackets. So easy that my 21 yr old son could do when I told him to put his phone down and try. But then again I been installing system since I was 15 now I'm 44 so I seen a lot of progress over the yrs.

Cons: Very very slight gap along the outside edge of speaker and brackets. Once you align it the best you can an use some weather strip underneath speaker it will help to isolate the front and rear sound waves for better sound. Would of been nice if the form was included in the install gear. But a quick trip to home
