Honed Polk perfection

These DB522 3-way speakers feature a 6"x9" 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. Two silk dome tweeters deliver 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 150 watts RMS

With power handling up to 150 watts RMS, you'll do fine driving this system with an aftermarket receiver, but these speakers will love life 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.

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.

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.

Customer Q&A

13 questions already asked

Are the tweeters flush with the top of the speaker? I will install without the grilles under the under the rear deck, must be flush or below flush. Please reply
[ Chris  Mar 30, 2021 ]
1 answer
The tweeters do protrude past the rest of the speaker (not counting the Polk grilles). Depending on the vehicle, this may not prevent the install. I recommend contacting an advisor by calling 1-800-324-9695 to check your vehicle

What amplifier would I need to match the rms of these speakers as well as front speakers with 100rms?
[ Chris  May 11, 2020 ]
1 answer
Well it all depends on the ohms of your front speakers..if your front speakers is 4ohms like your rear speakers than i would go with the pioneer GM-DX874....its 100watts RMS×4 at 4ohms...if you dont like pioneer than you can go with the Ifinity Kappa Four, its 100watts rms×4 at 4 Ohms..the pioneer is the cheapest choice..If you not worried about pricing than Infinity kappa four would be a good choice to..your speakers will last a long time with these amps because they dont over power your speakers causing them to blow out..happy shopping
[ DONALD  May 12, 2020 ]
What 5-channel amplifier would work best for these speakers as well as two front door speakers? And at what RMS?
[ Chris  May 10, 2020 ]
1 answer
Crhis, I have to refer you to the excellent staff at Crutchfield. I do not use and external amplifier. I find the internal Mosfet amp with the Kenwood Exceleron KDC-X501 receiver adequate for my listening needs. Good Luck.
[ Geremy  May 11, 2020 ]
For those who have this or have had this , what's the bass like?
[ Mike  Oct 31, 2019 ]
5 answers
I am not that technical. But I like the speakers in Corolla and feel way better than speakers that came with.
[ Ganapathy  Nov 09, 2019 ]
Not a deep bass, but for classic rock they sound good.
[ Victor  Oct 31, 2019 ]
Installed these Polk DB692 in my Camry in late 2017, paired with the DB652 in the front. At first with the bass set at mid-point, I was a bit concerned they wouldn't provide enough bass. But, just raising the bass control to about two-thirds solved my concern. Can hear and "feel" enough bass to satisfy without cranking it all the way up. If you want your windows and doors to shake and rattle, these won't do it. ;-) But who in the world would want to do that??? Clarity is very good. Still loving these speakers.
[ DOUGLAS  Oct 31, 2019 ]
Polk db692 has a full beautiful sound at all volumes. It's not a subwoofer.
[ SIDNEY  Oct 31, 2019 ]
I put them in the front fairing of s bike along with a small amp. Not a hard hitter, but not what I was looking for on use
[ Rodney  Oct 31, 2019 ]
If I use spacers, will these fit in the front doors of a 2013 Ram 1500 quad cab?
[ Jeff  Mar 17, 2019 ]

You can check to see if this will fit your vehicle by using our Outfit My Car tool: For additional details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
[ Krissy  Mar 22, 2019 ]  Staff
I put these in a 2014 crew cab and they fit great. I'm not sure how close the design is, but I would think that they should.
[ Casey90  Mar 18, 2019 ]
are these light weight?
[ Gwen  Feb 16, 2018 ]
1 answer
They weigh as much as a standard speaker. I would not call them "light weight".
[ Ian  Feb 17, 2018 ]
I am looking to install these on my Harley for the top of the saddle bags. I need to know if these are sealed for water so as long as I seal the speaker properly to the saddle bag, it shouldn't let any water throuhg? By the pics it looks as though the woofer is sealed to the tweeter but i need to be sure. looking at the marine grade Polk DB 692

I have these on my Victory XC bag lids. Been caught in the rain a couple times, as well as a serious washing with the hose. I get some water inside, just a trickle or so, but enough to get my spare rags wet, and ruined any papers in the bag. Not sure if it's the speaker itself, or the hole for the speaker (in the bag lid), going to be putting some RTV on the flange/frame of the speaker to seal the edges onto the bag lid for next year. I would highly recommend these speakers though, have them pushed by an Alpine hd149bt thru a JL Audio hx280/4. Also 2 Polk 5.25s in fairing (forget the model # exactly). You can hear everything clear as can be (after tuning everything) and you can hear me from about 2 blocks away if I want!
[ Ian  Nov 21, 2017 ]
can I run these speakers on a 2 ohm load to get more out of my Sound Ordnance M-4050 amp?
[ Scooby Snacks  Jul 25, 2017 ]
1 answer
I think it's more a function of whether the amp can operate properly with a 2 ohm load. That's a difficult task for many amplifiers, especially inexpensive ones.
[ David  Jul 28, 2017 ]
I'm installing these in my boat. Will a 400 watt 2 channel Pyle amp be enough to push them?
[ Chad  Apr 20, 2017 ]
3 answers
Yes, easily.
[ David  Jul 28, 2017 ]
They should sound amazing with that amp
[ Umberto  Apr 21, 2017 ]
Should be plenty, and will likely allow you to keep the gain on the amp low enough to totally avoid clipping. FULL volume could be too much, be careful. FWIW, don't expect outrageous bass from 6x9s (any of them). These are good, but a sub is a sub. I had an Infinity BassLink a while back and think it would be a good match. Not "thumpy", but solid and rich.
