Stellar performers

If you're building your new system on a budget, Polk Audio's DB+ Series speakers are a dynamite value as well as being stellar performers. Their journey to excellence begins with a laser-imaged design that ensures minimal distortion, a smooth response, and incredible sonic detail. 

Honed Polk perfection

These DB652 2-way speakers feature a 6-1/2" 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.

Handles up to 100 watts RMS

With power handling up to 100 watts RMS, you'll do fine driving this system with an aftermarket receiver, but these speakers will reach peak performance if you power them with a nice amp.

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.

Note: Polk includes brackets to fit a 6-3/4" opening.

Product Research


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.

Mounting: The speaker baskets have multiple mounting holes and are designed to fit standard 3-hole 6-1/2, Ford's 4-hole 6-1/2, and 6-3/4 applications. (A speaker baffle should be used to seal the inner ring of screw holes in 6-3/4 installations.) The included adapter brackets can be used to fit many specialized factory speaker applications. The brackets are also useful as a spacer in shallow locations; the brackets add 0.232" to the speakers' mounting height and subtract 0.232" from the mounting depth. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.

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.

26 questions already asked

I'm looking to upgrade the speakers in my 2006 Toyota Tundra Double cab with the JBL Premium system. I have already replaced the head unit with a Kenwood DMX905S and wired it to continue using the original amp from my system. I see that I need 2 Ohm speakers to maintain the volume level. I am looking at the Powerbass 2 ohm 6 1/2 woofers to replace the front speakers, Will I lose volume in the rears if I use the Polk Audio DB 652's?
[ Tim  Nov 17, 2020 ]

The Polk Audio 652s are 4-ohm speakers, if you replace the 2-ohm OEM speakers with 4-ohm speakers you will notice a volume drop.
[ Calvin  Dec 03, 2020 ]  Staff
That depends on a number of factors. Does what impedance were your OEM speakers. Some OEM JBL speakers are of an odd impedance. The Polks sound great. They don't put out a lot of bass but they don't distort the bass with a good clean signal and enough power. Far, far better than those OEM JBLs. They are only 4-ohm so that has to be factored in with your choice of the 2-ohm Powerbass. I take it that you will have these upfront in the doors and Polks in the back. If the amp is sequentially powered in the front/back channels, then the 2-ohm load will provide roughly twice the power of the backs at 4-ohm. Location distance will also factor. Perhaps your head unit has time alignment and level sets. Honestly, all you really need is a wide front sound stage with good presence and the rear just providing ambiance. I had a competition level 92' Mercury Sable Wagon that I used to showcase our product when I was Branch salesman for Metra Electronics back in the mid 90s. I used the OEM Ford 6 inch rear paper cone speakers getting clean 50watt RMS from a sweet Blaupunkt for rear ambiance, with a switch to a rear soundstage when I open the rear hatch for demonstrations at out booths to directly showcase the product.

[ MelD0409  Jun 09, 2020 ]
1 answer
These speaker will not fit that space as they need 1.8125" for mounting depth. We do carry some 6.5" speakers that can fit within a maximum of 1.5" mounting depth and we have advisors that you can reach by calling 1-800-324-9695 to get a personal recommendation on speakers that can fit

There is plenty of volume with these speakers and they sound better then my Silverado OEM speakers. fat bass, clear mid range and shimmering high end

I don't know about the "kickers". However I purchased two sets of these speakers for my VW new Beetle. They were easy to install, actually had more parts than I needed, and sound great.
[ Dave  May 06, 2020 ]
Yes they are.
[ Percy  May 05, 2020 ]
I have a 2008 Chevy silverado with the Bose sound system will these sound better than that? And do these come with tweeters? or can I use the factory bose tweeters?

Hi Christian. We will be happy to help you out with your upgrades. It would be best that you chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We would love to go over your factory setup, answer your questions, and provide you with personalized information and recommendations.
[ Jess  May 05, 2020 ]  Staff
Should the tweeters be installed in the back as well. How will it be put in if no spot or area for the tweeter?
[ TaldoGoatBueno  Mar 31, 2020 ]
2 answers
The DB652 is a coaxial pair of speakers and the tweeter is part of the speaker's structure. I think you might be thinking of a component set which has separate woofers and tweeters. In a case like that, you can pretty much mount the tweeters however you'd like, utilizing the included hardware most manufacturers supply with their speaker sets.
[ Jeremy  Apr 14, 2020 ]
The dB 652 in my Escape are installed In the lower door where the factory speakers were. The tweeter is part of the speaker. Not separate.

is this product (Polk Audio DB 652) can I fix to my Corolla 2006 wagon's rear door to factory default frame? how is the BASS quality while comparing with factory default ones
[ fah777  Jan 08, 2019 ]

OK, first off I don't know if these speakers are a direct replacement. I had to use an adapter. It worked fine. I'm going to say they are better than factory. Polk makes great stuff. I have them in the back seat package tray of my 2007 Honda Civic, and they run off a pioneer amp (it's a speaker wire driven amp not a pre-amp driven unit, but it works well). I have the factory head unit, and it's the premier top line from Honda. I also have the factory sub woofer in the package tray (that probably leaves a bit to be desired). I have a new set of front door speakers (nothing fancy but way better than stock). The whole system volume runs from 0 to 35 and sounds rather well (concidering the cost is about $500). I'm 60 and I still love to rock out with the windows down and the sunroof open - and those Polk rear speakers have served me well for their cost. I don't know what you listen to for music, but if I'm driving down the road and I slap on some Led Zeppelin Houses of the Holy Kashmire then all is good. My factory speakers deteriorated, came apart due to weather. Those polks are 4-5 years old and still sound awesome. They were well worth the investment. Will they rattle your trunk lid and shake your quarter panels? Probably not - but they should hold 100w and I drive 60w through them all day long and the sound great. Plus, they are made with marine quality stuff so here in humid Florida I know I'll not have to change them out in a few years. Hope that answers your question.
[ Bruce  Jan 13, 2019 ]
Well everyone has their own take on what sounds good. So along with the speakers I have a kenwood receiver so double the effect yes they are way better than factory speakers
[ CHAD  Jan 12, 2019 ]
I have a 2005 Mitsu. Outlander. I've recently my 2 front door speakers due to rain coming down from the windshield. How water resistant are these speakers and are these the right ones to solve my problem or is there something else I can do to solve it?
[ The Dude  Nov 20, 2018 ]
2 answers
On my Scion xB the window trim that blocks water has begun to deteriorate and looks like it allows water into the door. I've haven't ran into any issues yet, but feel more confident knowing these are water resistant in case they get wet.
[ Zach  Nov 20, 2018 ]
I assume that by "windshield" you mean the door windows. They can withstand moisture. If the doors are stock they should have a clear plastic sheet affixed on the door frame. This is a water barrier protecting the door panels and speakers. Any door speaker is an open construction and must be protected from water. If the clear plastic water sheets are missing or are torn, I suggest you replace them at the same time you install your new Polks. They are "honest" speakers and you will enjoy years of performance if you take care of them.

How is the bass?
[ Randy  Apr 18, 2018 ]
2 answers
I just put these in our boat with a relatively low power and they're doing fine bass is wonderful good balance with the mids and highs
[ High av  Aug 04, 2019 ]
The bass is about that of an Infinity. Your mid and high frequencies come out extremely clear, while still maintaining a good deep bass sound. The clarity is more of what I am impressed with with these speakers while maintaining a decent bass sound that is not overly overwhelming to the point where I have to sound proof my vehicle due the door panel vibrations.
[ TIMOTHY W  Apr 19, 2018 ]
Judging by the pictures, these appear to have a crossover built in... do we know what frequency these are crossed at?
[ David  Dec 22, 2017 ]
1 answer
These speakers definitely do have a crossover built in to distribute the audio to the 2 drivers. However, we do not know the frequency being used. I recommend contacting Polk support to see if they have that information. I have 800-377-7655 for their phone number. My Bio:
[ Paul  Dec 31, 2017 ]  Staff
I have a 2008 Honda Accord with separate, factory tweeters on the upper part and woofers on the lower part of each front door. Is it possible to use these Polk Audio speakers and still retain the use of the tweeter, or will I have a problem with the crossover? Currently, it is actually just the rear speakers that sounds muddy and needs replacing. The front speakers sounds ok, but I would also change out all the speakers at the same time. Would I actually need to go with component speakers for the front?

I put polks in my silverado with separate tweeters. Just turn down the treble a little bit.
[ Dean  Oct 26, 2018 ]
You do not have to use component speakers. The factory speakers in the lower door and rear deck still get a full-range signal so, you can install the Polk DB652 in both locations if need be.

I need shallow mount speakers. Are these the same size as the db651s. That's the depth of the speaker I am looking for?
[ Greg  Apr 09, 2017 ]
1 answer
These speakers actually use less depth than the db651s model. Also, these speakers need almost exactly the same mounting height so they should fit in place of the db651s speakers. HTH! My Bio:

How will these speakers perform with a 2014 Jeep Wrangler stock stereo and a Kicker 600W amp?
[ TheDawg  Apr 01, 2017 ]
1 answer
Depends on the quality of sound that you already have replacing speakers will upgrade your sound a little, the head unit is where the difference is really heard, also you should get a good sub for true bass, these speakers will not bring out the true deep bass tones
[ Andre  Apr 04, 2017 ]
On a 2ohm head unit with 40W output will these units get as loud as stock?
[ matteitrem  Feb 17, 2017 ]
2 answers
Check with Crutchfield about the 2ohm unit.
[ Bryan  Jun 28, 2018 ]
Should be close to stock volume I would think. When I looked into everything for my car it seemed like most stock head units were around 40-50W. If you're just changing head units you should end up with similar volume output.
[ Nathan  Feb 17, 2017 ]
Where the wires attach to the speaker, are those passive filters soldered inline?
[ mauirixxx  Sep 30, 2016 ]
2 answers
It means they filter either Low, mids, highs frequencies just by connecting them between the speakers and the sound source (stereo). The ones on this speakers are welded or soldered in the speaker. Right past the connection you just have to plug in the wires the speaker comes with. Also maybe you should give out more details when asking a question. Are you buying extra passive filters? . Does the speaker have passive filters?. DETAILS BABY, DETAILS!!
[ Saul  Oct 01, 2016 ]
They are soldered past the connection.

Do Polk speaker covers snap on or screw on ?
[ Terry  Aug 04, 2016 ]

screw on. The speakers come with a plastic type of padapting plate that is 9 by 6 if your OEM speakers are 9 by 6. So that you can adapt the 6 inch speakers to it. These speakers have good mid bass by the way.
[ Saul  Aug 05, 2016 ]
They will screw on
[ JEREMY  Aug 05, 2016 ]
The covers are held on with the same screws that hold the speakers in place.
