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.
These DB522 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.
Polk includes mounting hardware, along with boldly designed grilles that add flare to your vehicle's interior if you're doing a custom installation.
Great product and awesome information provided by Crutchfield. Thanks

Great product and awesome information provided by Crutchfield. Thanks
Great flush mount 2 way speaker, sounds great with my low watt amp.
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.
Pros: Super easy upgrade, sounds much better at hi-way speeds at higher volume
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 depot fixed that.
Sound great, great upgrade from the worn out pioneers that where in before
Very good upgrade for my stick 97 Jeep speakers.
Pros: Easy replacement.
Installed with a new head unit and amp in our pontoon boat - outstanding sound. Hole pattern is slightly smaller than the old 5.25" speakers I removed.
Crisp and clear sound but speakers perform poor for bass quality. These speakers provide no bass.
Pros: Crisp and clear
Cons: Speakers provide no bass
I purchased these after trying a set of kenwood 1365. These are going into a 2005 Civic EX sedan with the stock head unit which puts out 30 watts x 4 channels (Honda doesn't say if that is RMS or peak). I tried them in both the rear deck and the front door locations listening to R&B, progressive rock, and fusion drumming. The PolkDB522 produced good clarity in vocals and most instruments. Listening to the bass line however was a little troublesome. Bass drum notes could be heard well, though. While listening to these I just have a sense that something is missing. It's not quite a full bodied sound. Also the volume was less than the stock speakers. Trying the Polk DB's that are 6 1/2" next. If you are paring these with a quality musical sealed subwoofer, these might do well for you.
Pros: Easy fit, clear vocals and higher instruments, low distortion.
Cons: Bass response is barely OK. Does not pressurize the cabin.
Great sound for small speakers.
Pros: Great price and sound.
Base sound great. Could not say about the mid and hi range as the car audio filters it almost completely.
I have had to really tweak my settings and they still seem to have a bit too much treble.
Nice upgrade for my 03 Jeep Wrangler sound bar.
Pros: Price, look, sound
Very nice speakers.
I bought these speakers to replace the OEM speakers in the rear of my 2006 Acura RSX. They sound great with my new Kenwood DPX302U. They don't require a ton of power. The quality seems a bit better than the Kicker KS speakers I put in my truck.
Purchased these to replace a pair of older Polk speakers in my 1988 Jeep Comanche. They are mounted in the front doors and old speakers were damaged from water entering the doors. These new speakers are marine grade so hopefully no more water damage. They were very easy to install and sound much better then the old speakers. I would highly recommend.
Pros: Water resistant, marine grade cones. Awesome sound for a small speaker. Great looking speaker.
husband was pleased with gift. Has yet to install.
Pros: Real nice speaker.
Cons: Nothing negative.
Great upgrade from stock speakers.
These speakers are the so crisp and sound so great, I was surprised and was really thinking that I might need so spend more money to get the sound I was looking for. They're really great!
Pros: Love everything about them
Particularly liked the accompanied instructions and hardware on installing the speakers. Only a 30-minute job to install the woofer speaker in the bottom of my Sequoia door. The old one had been rattling for over a year, but this new Polk Audio DB522 was a great choice at a reasonable price.
Easy to install with free kit
This review is specific to the fit in my vehicle. The 5 stars were just to maintain the rating average since the fit isn't a defect in the speaker. I have 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 regular cab. These speakers are slightly smaller than the factory speakers and require new holes in the vehicle. The oem speaker uses 3 screws, and these use 4. Just FYI for posterity's sake.
Pros: -Sound fine
Cons: -requires new holes to be drilled in 2007 Dodge Ram
the Crutchfield "fit to your vehicle" system works. took all the factory JBL sound system concerns on my tundra i had out of the equation. the free inclusion of the adapter and connectors adding in selling me to using this from now on. i plan to order matching rear speakers as soon as my budget allows.
Pros: included adapters made for an easy swap for my special factory restricted replacement. i couldn't purchase locally because the retailer didn't know if/how the front door speakers would work or fit. it's the JBL amp system in toyotas i had concern if compatible.
Cons: none of note
I've got to say, I am very pleasantly surprised! I don't usually write reviews, but I like these little speakers so much that I decided to take the time. I hooked these up to my '05 Jeep Wrangler in the roll bar and dash locations, and running off of my Alpine deck (18W) they sound REALLY good. I replaced Polk 4x6s and Rockford 5 1/4s which I thought sounded pretty decent, and these were a nice upgrade. I can't wait to get the Alpine 45W power pack connected up to see how they sound with some more power pushed to them. But right out of the gate, great highs and mids, and surprisingly nice "low end" for small speakers. I do have a sub in the armrest and would recommend a sub if you can, and/or require some heavy bass in your tunes. But if not, these speakers will jam just fine and get you by. I was on the fence between spending 2-3 times more on some Focals, but decided to go with the Polks because of all the great reviews...glad I did.
Pros: Warm, clear, and surprisingly nice low-ish end for a 5.25 speaker running off of an Alpine deck.
Cons: None that I can think of so far, especially for 5.25s and at this price point.
Perfect replacement for stock Wrangler speakers. The rig gets MUDDY, so having marine speakers that I can just hose off at the end of the weekend is a huge help. Sound exactly how you would expect Polk speakers to sound.
Pros: Great Sound, Water Resistant
installed in motorcycle fairing. Too much treble! Set to -5 and is ok.....decent speaks for the money.
Pros: easy to install
Cons: high range is excessive IMO
Awesome sound and the Crutchfield adapter rings made this a 15 minute swap in my 1990 Miata!
Great quality speakers Tweeter sounds amazing for highs Adds plenty of oomph to your system without needing an amp (I'm sure adding an amp will make these speakers even better though)
Pros: Great quality speakers
Great speakers honestly. Sound is phenomenal and they look incredible. Absolutely zero negative comments.
Installed perfectly. Sound great
Good mid. Good high. Don't even think it will fill your base needs, at least not in a convertible. These fit (barely) in the rear location of a BMW E30 convertible.
Pros: Good mid, good high
Cons: No real base, although what can you expect from a 5.25" speaker.
Great sound !!
Perfect upgrade for my roll cage speaker box. Nice fit and sound great. Crutchfield tech advice was spot on for this pair of speakers.
Pros: Nice fit . Great sound.
Sound great. Fit great. Could not be happier with purchase.
Pros: Sound awesome. Came with wiring and mounting adapters. Install in under 10 minutes.
Decent speakers but I would like to see a little bit more bass response out of them.
Pros: Easy installation nice crisp highs very clear speakers.
Cons: Would like to see some more bass response.
I am using these for temporary front fill in my BMW 740iL. They fit perfectly, and the install was dead easy. Highs are crisp, but not shrill, and the midrange is good. Being smaller 5.25" speakers, the bottom end isn't all that great, but the system has a good sub in the trunk for that. Even driven full range & wide open by a Kenwood 45w RMS x 4 amp, they get loud and stay clean. For the money, hard to beat. They will eventually move to the rear doors and be replaced by compnents, but if you need a good pair of reasonably priced 5.25" coaxials, these are it...period.
Pros: Great fit Smooth sound Good pricing
Cons: Included grilles...not pretty
Speakers were used to replace my rear Kicker speakers. Kickers were good speakers for four years but finally had one blow the woofer. These speakers were a great fit, easy to install and sound fantastic. My stereo sounds really good with these speakers. Worth the money!
Pros: easy to install. sound great
Cons: small rear magnets? Not sure if they will handle my stereo's power. Time will tell.
Great fit, great sound, great value.
These were recommended by a friend and they sound great! Was not let down one bit.
Pros: Great sound.
Cons: None to speak of.
Very clear sound. Huge upgrade from th factory speakers. Will be adding an amp to help them reach their full potential.
Pros: Clear sound Easy installation
I put these speakers in my 2016 Indian chieftain because my stock speakers weren't cutting it. They are much louder and clearer than stock. I also went with these because they are marine grade speakers great for motorcycle.
Pros: Great sound. A lot louder than my stock speakers
Cons: Wish they had a little more bass.
Great highs and mids, even some lows are there but definitely need a sub!
Pros: Great sound, as usual, from a Polk speaker in this price range
Cons: Weak on the lower midrange, but I expected that.
Installed in front corners and on sound bar. The Jeep has a JVC head unit that was installed before I bought it. Replaced DB521s on sound bar, and kicker DS460s(4x6) in the front. When I ordered the speakers they came with everything I needed for install for free. The sound is incredible for a 5.25, I think that the 100w RMS really helps out. It was a huge improvement over the speakers I replaced.
Pros: Good sound Quality at high volume, Reasonable price.
Cons: The plastic grills that come with the speakers don't fit on the sound bar.
These speakers are awesome. did quite bit of research on them before purchasing. Currently running a Kenwood DPX302BT. After the relatively easy installation, and tweaking the head unit these speakers came to life. I am now able to hear background sources and vocals I didn't even know were present. I highly recommend these speakers for the front or rear or both. This was a factory upgrade. I don't have the speakers on an amp because its not needed. If you are looking for that (Boom) these speakers alone will not do it however that is not their intent. These speaker are made to reproduce highs and mids and they do it flawlessly. With no amp I can turn the head unit up to about 33 before they start to distort. I also recommend the wiring and door adapters to make sure everything fits. Would definitely purchase these again in a heart beat.
I installed these speakers in the rear deck of a 2002 Honda Civic. The installation of both of these took about 2 hours but it was totally worth it! This was an upgrade from the factory speakers and the sound quality is now great. Good bass, and even better mids and highs. I Would definately recommend these to a friend!
Pros: Huge upgrade from factory speakers Pretty easy to install Fit in easily Crutchfield instructions helped a ton
Very clear sound and hard hitting
Arrived on time - installation was very easy; simple change out with the factory speakers on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler roll bar. Sound (voice and music) is much better, even with the road noise of a Jeep soft top. Great with my new Alpine receiver. Well worth the price.
Pros: Really like them.
Cons: Plastic covers could be a little more substantial, ruggedized.
Installed with select increment dash pods, love the results!
Love them. Perfect for my 2006 Jeep Wrangler
Pros: Waterproof and sound fantastic
These are very good upgrade speakers that fit in the factory locations on the Victory Cross Country Tour. They are shallow so no cutting in the trunk location. I did use a self adhesive 1/4 " weather strip on the back of the speaker just to add a little space. The sound is better than stock but needs an amp to really make a difference. I will be ordering an amp soon.
Really good sound. I wanted a true waterproof speaker upgrade for my goldwing. These sound awesome.
Cons: Required a little intstallation modification.
replace factory speakers on a jeep, perfect fit.
Pros: Defiantly can hear the music now without the top on on at 60 mph!!
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: Easy install. An extra hand would be useful, due to the over head location. Awesome sound. Shipped really quick.
Cons: Replacement covers look cool but do not offer much protection to the cones. I have kids, so I opted to reuse the OEM covers to keep little fingers off of my new speakers. Holes lined up perfectly.
They sound great, easy to install, well built, all plus no minus.
Great speakers I could not believe the difference and the great sound. Will be buying the same brand for the front shortly. Shipping was fast , I received speakers in 3 days and was a 15 minute job to install
Pros: Easy to install
Speakers were the exact dimensions I needed and are great outside!
Pros: Good sound quality for my application.
Very impressed with these speakers.
Pros: Sound great
I bought these speakers to replace the 37 year old factory speakers of my 1979 Jeep CJ7. They are absolutely fantastic. I only drive my Jeep without a top. Even with no top, these speakers can handle the loudness I need to overcome the road noise and open air situation. They are clear, crisp and they were very easy to put in. I would recommend these speakers to any one!
Pros: price, sound quality.
Sound is awesome. Easy to replace original sound bar speakers withe the Polk speakers.
Pros: Great mid range sound. Weather resistant.
Great 100 watt RMS speakers, great deal also!!!
Sounds way better than the stock speakers I have in my car.
Good factory upgrade.
I ordered the Polk Audio DB522's for my 2004 Ford Mustang, after changing the head unit. It sounded awful! The Mach system was replaced by a 1000 watt amp, the JVC head unit and the DB522's and my other Polk Audio speakers! Total rewire of "the system " I am so impressed with these speakers!!!! The sound is so much better! Crisp highs, the mids are great as well! I can't believe that there would be that much of a change, Crutchfield, you have blown me away! My Bazooka 10" sub will be here tomorrow! Can't wait to add that extra bass!
Almost twice at loud as my 4 inch speakers with the same amp
Pros: Great full range sound
Cons: None yet

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.
