Speaker Specifications

This is the manufacturer product line of speakers.
db (Polk)
Priced Per
Car Speakers are typically sold in pairs so you will receive 2 speakers for each speaker purchase on speakers marked "Priced Per Pair". If a speaker is marked "Priced Per Each" then the speaker is sold individually and each purchase you make will result in 1 speaker. High-powered tweeters, midrange and full-range pro audio for car speakers are typically sold per each speaker.
Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
4" x 6"
The number of individual drivers in a car speaker. Speakers with 2 drivers are known as a 2-way, and 3 drivers are known as a 3-way. Component systems are often referred to as "separates" because the tweeter is not attached to the midwoofer (main speaker driver) and mounts separately in a location such as a door post. Component systems typically come with an external crossover so you can easily adjust the high and low frequencies sent to both the midwoofer and the tweeter. Center channel speakers are great for those looking to have surround sound in their vehicle.
2-way Plate
Tweeter Design
Designs such as cone, dome, semi-dome, balanced dome, and whizzer are most popular. Cone tweeters are simple, efficient and typically are the most reasonably priced. Dome tweeters are used in most home speakers, and provide a smoother and more accurate sound. Semi-dome design is one with a dome placed inside a cone. A Balanced dome driver is a semi-dome with equal reproduction area given the cone and dome portions of the driver. A whizzer tweeter is a separate tweeter cone driven by the voice coil of the woofer.
Tweeter Composition
Materials such as polypropylene, silk, cloth, and paper are the most common, where as many more recent tweeters are now manufactured with composites such as Aluminum, Titanium, Mylar, and other materials.

PEI is an acronym for "Polyetherimide" which is an amorphous, amber transparent, high-performance thermoplastic.

Silk-Polymer Composite
Woofer Composition
Lightweight woofer cone materials are essential for efficient operation. Poly cones produce exceptional sound and are sturdy against various changes in temperature. Paper cones are very efficient, and when treated for moisture resistance, will perform at a high level. Poly refers to polypropylene, which is thermoplastic or fibers that are polymers of propylene. IMPP refers to injection molded polypropylene, a commonly used process and material in speakers.
Polymer/Mica Composite
Woofer Surround
A speakers surround is part of the suspension system. The surround protects the cone and prevents it from being displaced as it flexes out from the basket. It is usually made of a durable material like treated foam or rubber in order to withstand the strenuous job of producing bass frequencies.
Butyl Rubber
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
120 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
40 watts
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
91 dB
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
75 - 22,000 Hz
Impedance (Per Voice Coil)
The load value (in ohms) that the speakers present to the amplifier per voice coil - the amount of resistance to the current flow. This is a key specification as subs wired in parallel or low impedances can create problems with your amplifier and potentially void all warranties. We encourage you to ask our support department prior to purchase if you do not understand which impedance level will suit your application best.
4 ohms
Shallow Mount Installation
This means that the subwoofer/speaker is designed to be installed in areas that do not have a lot of space. Shallow mount subwoofers are typically found under a seat or behind the seat in some trucks.

Shallow mount speakers will typically have a mounting depth of 2" or less, while shallow mount subwoofers will typically have a mounting depth of 3" or less.

Top-Mount Depth
The depth when installed on top of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the bottom of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.
Speaker Grilles
A grating or screen of metal or plastic bars or wires, mounted in front of a speaker as protection. If yes, the speakers will include matching speaker grilles. If no, there are no grilles included.
Number of Speakers
This is the number of speaker that is included in the package. Each purchase will result in receiving the number of speakers indicated here. Please note that some items will have multiple woofers in the same enclosure. For sets of component speakers, this number will refer to the number of sets of speakers (For example, 2 would indicate the purchase includes 2 woofers and 2 tweeters).

Please refer to the product image and description for further details about the speaker.

Good little speakers

June 18, 2011

Very solid little speaker. I am running an MB Quartz amp (60 rms x 4) on these and they are taking it just fine. Bass is decent and so are the highs. Typical db sounding speakers. A 4x6 has limitations, so if you can custom install a 6.5 do it. However, if not, then these are not a bad way to go. Good choice for GM cars that fit only 4x6.

Sounds gooood

May 1, 2011

This sub was installed in my son's GMC pickup while he was in Afghanistan with his US Marine unit. He said "it's sounds better than the Taliban shooting at me". I don't doubt it.

very good speakers

March 29, 2009

these speakers put out very clear sound throughout. i use them with two polk audio momo 6x9 speakers and they sound great. if you are concerned with the quality of the sound as well as the price, polk has it locked down. dont be fooled by the online price, these speakers sell much higher in any audio store. polk keeps a clean record for quality and this is a fine example.

I was in need of some quality front door speakers for my 2 door Cavalier so i asked a few friends that are knowledgeable with speakers and also work installing them. for my price range i was told that these are excellent speakers and that Polk Audio is known for quality and performance with everything they do! Polk Audio also makes Polk Momo speakers and having a brand like Momo be confident in your speakers to brand them with their name, you know they are good!
they sound great!
clear and crisp!

Great Value, Polk Set

May 6, 2014

2013 Chevy Spark 2LT. I dropped in the db401 and the db461 sets. With the stock MyLink dash, they sound great! No bass as they are 4" speakers, however, the mids/highs are very crisp. Build this set up with a db1240dvc sub, a pa660.4 amp, and you've got a rocking Polk Audio collection that makes your music sound amazing! I mostly listen to rock, but all genres sound great. The materials are super-durable!

Perfect for Porsche 964

January 29, 2013

By now the rear speakers in your Porsche 964 are probably knackered! These speakers fit straight into the existing factory mounts, just use a little adhesive velco to fix the factory speaker covers in each corner. Great sound as you would expect from Polk and I'm running a modern Alpine head unit as opposed to the old factory Blaupunkt.

Great sound

January 31, 2011

I purchased these speakers as replacements to my current rear deck speakers and I'm very happy with them. Superb range in sound and clarity at all levels of volume. I would highly recommend these speakers if you're looking to upgrade. Great price point.
