Speaker Specifications

Series
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.
Pair
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.
5" x 7" (also mounts in most 6" x 8" locations)
Design
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
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.
Dome
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.
180 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.
60 watts
Sensitivity
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".
93 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).
52 - 22000 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.

Yes
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.
2-3/16"
Bottom-Mount Depth
The depth when installed from the bottom of the mounting surface. Measured from the bottom of the speaker's magnet to the top of the mounting holes on the rim of the speaker.
2-1/3"
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.
No
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.

Installed in girlfriend's 2009 Ford Focus. HUGE improvement over stock speakers! I was very impressed by the sound quality and range for a coax at this price point. Can't go wrong with Polk. Do yourself a favor and by the Metra speaker wire adapters...very convenient and saves a lot of time.

Installed these in replace of stock mids on a 2012 Ford Mustang. Good speakers but because they handle more watts than the stock speakers the factory cross over made the mids too high and offered less bass. Not the fault of the speakers though.

Great Speaker Replacements

June 10, 2009

I recommend these speakers...especially if you are having difficulty in affording the top of the line anything...I needed moderate speakers for my 06 F350 crew cab, replacing the stock 6x8s...I have an older amp waiting for a clean install later at 65rmx4 at 4ohms...but for now, the stock head unit (with steering wheel controls and short arms) is pumping 16watts rms x4 and they sound cleaner, warmer, higher, and lower than stock 4ohms at 25 watt rating...I couldn't believe the difference in mid bass and bass...I really think they are reaching their rated 52Hz in my sealed doors...I enjoy techno/electronica/ and some classic rock (zepp/ozzy/halen/etc..) they do great here too because the midbass is warm and has some pressure...I may not need to add the 6.5 midbass drivers I have from previous install...the highs sound nice, but too bright at times...can't wait to add some clean power and cross them over on the amp high pass at 50 and then on up as needed...I've had em'in my truck (4 new ones) for 1 business day and gave em' country/rock/trance/heavy metal/and even an audio book today...can't wait for tomorrow...these will do for a long time until I wait for some separates but need to fab some fiberglass door panels (infinity kappa)..hope this helped....features was 4 for non swivel tweets in center...overall was 4 because of bright highs at times...

Excellent Polk Car Speakers

March 29, 2011

I installed 2 sets of db571 speakers in my 2004 Mercury Mountaineer 6 mos ago. My concern was that I would not have sufficient bass response w/o a sub, however, these speakers produce ample bass and great sound (after I set the sound dynamics on the new Eclipse H/U which I also purchased from Sonic). Overall, very satisfied.

August 23, 2009

I installed these in the front doors of my 2008 Ford F-150. Even using the factory CD player, these speakers jam. Clear, but not tinny highs, and really solid lows from a 6 X 8" speaker. I use these in conjunction with a 10" Dub Sub, and my SLAYER will wake the dead. They are equally impressive for Segovia or Yo Yo Ma.

I replaced the four factory speakers in my 2011 Ford F-150 with these db571 speakers a few weeks ago. I also installed an amp and sub which are only powered when the engine is on. I noticed that even without the sub and amp, the sound quality is much much nicer than what I had with the factory speakers. Would recommend these to anyone.

Excellent 5x7 by Polk

November 14, 2011

I have driven Ford vehicles for many years and I always replace their crappy stock speakers within a week or so of buying a vehicle. At first I tried to install my older Punch 6x8s (P1683) that I had pulled out of my Expedition prior to trading, in the doors of the F-150, but they were just a bit too large and I didn't want to carve up the doors of my beautiful new truck. I have always used Rockford Fosgate or Kicker for car audio but have been using Polk Audio for my home theater, so I decided that since my home theater Polk speakers sounded so great that I would try some in my F-150. I just put these in over the weekend and right out of the box they sounded BETTER than any Fosgate or Kicker 5X7 I have ever heard, excellent sound. I am running them off of a Fosgate Punch 400.4 which is rated at 50 watts rms x 4 (actually puts out about 70x4) and the 5x7 sound amazing. Nice tight midbass and very clear highs. I can now say that I have converted from Fosgate to Polk on door speakers, still stickin with Fosgate for my subs and amps, though I am curious to hear some Polk car audio subs.

Awesome Speakers!!!

June 5, 2012

I have a 2006 Ford F350 with a factory head unit and no amp. I am by no means an audio expert but here's my opinion: Immediate difference from stock speakers. I can run these speakers at full volume with no distortion. Plenty of bass, but also controlled and tight. The sound quality doesn't change at any volume. I recommend these speakers for anyone with a 5x7 speaker. The only reason i rated durability a 3 is because I just got these and don't have any reference on durability, but they feel and look well built.

April 20, 2011

I was surprised at the sound of these speakers. I run them straight from my 25 watt Pioneer stereo unit wich might only be 12.5 watts at 4 ohms, anyway in the back and 2 custom 12 in. subs I created from Sonic Electronix sales that are run with an amp that puts out 200 watts at 4 ohms. x 2 channels and they balance out perfectly. I also have 2 5x7 Rockford Fosgates in the front door I got at Sonic Electronix

I bought 4 pairs of these speakers for two Ford Taurus cars with factory Stereo radios/Cd Player.... The sound is the best I have heard in years.... I got them on sale from Sonic Electronix.... The Factory speakers were muddy sounding... Changed them out with these Polks and the factory head sounds like a more powerful system which is clean and clear sounding... Bass is there and good... Love Em and will upgrade my Ford Pickup with them too...Very Happy

great budget replacement speaker

November 9, 2010

I've owned 3 pairs of these speakers and for the money, there is no better pair of 5x7's as a direct factory replacement. These sound better than any factory speaker, period. They sound way better amped rather than just being powered by the head unit. Not heavy bass, but properly set up, they sound very tight. If your on a budget and dont want to spend more than $150 for 2 pairs (Like my 2002 Focus, 2 pair db571's and an eclipse 40x4 amp, kenwood head unit) of speakers, these are for you. The entire Polk line is high quality and sound just as good as speakers that are 3x as much $$

May 30, 2009

I own a F150 and purchased these for all four doors. I had the benefit of using them with the stock HU and then using them with an aftermarket HU.
differences:
stock HU -
PROs: tad bit more crisp, added deep bass notes, that i never knew doors speakers could produce. MAX'd volume and these guys didn't crack, distort, or fade.
CONs: there is not enough power(expected, using OEM HU) although sound SQ was improved lack of volume sucked!
Aftermarket HU -
PROs: louder, brings out the full sound of the speaker.
CONs: slight brassy sound, had to adjust the HU's tone and filters, and a slight tweak on the iPOD's EQ and it was remedied, but again they need more power. eventually I will add an amp to these. Turnign these up past 3/4 they start to distort(HU defect not speaker).

final note,
aside from the very slightest brassy sound, these speakers are great for the price!!!
all in all very pleased, price and value!

also these are "MARINE" speakers?? so I opted not to use baffles? pro or con i don't know? So far so good. I did add dynamat to the inner skin of the door. moutning i had to bend a few tabs to have correct fitment in the rear doors.

Very good entry level speakers

January 20, 2011

I would recommend these speakers who are trying to inexpensively replace their stock speakers. The speakers can play very loudly and definitely produce bass with a decent head unit. The speakers come with great mounting accessories and protection. Installing them yourself to save cost is as easy as buying a connection adapter and taking off your door panels.

If you are looking for high quality speakers or to really pump up a car, you will want to spend more money. But for anybody looking for good sound while spending little: buy these.

Needs to be amped

March 1, 2012

I put these in my wife's Mazda 5 being powered by a Pioneer GM-D9500F. They sounded very good and provided enough bass I decided not to sacrifice the little cargo space I had for subs.

Currently they are installed in my Ford Freestyle with no amp. They sound better than the factory speakers but are nothing compared to how they were amped. Bass is non-existent at best but the highs and mids are good. Because they are marine certified they are a little thicker and heavier. This slows down response so some songs sound a little muddled. As long as they are amped it's not noticeable.

Bottom line is I loved these speakers they provided all the sound I wanted and were a great price. Unfortunately for my tastes I have to factor in an amp to go with them.

do I need a speaker wire adapter to install in a 2001 Ford E150 van?
A shopper on Mar 6, 2015
Best Answer: You shouldn't need an adapter if you're just replacing the factory speakers with aftermarket ones,but you may need to cut the harness off of the factory speakers and butt connect terminals on to those wires to hookup your aftermarket speakers and depending on the length of factory harness you may need to add some wire. Hope this helps.

What is the size of the speaker cover ?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2015
Best Answer: No covers included. Used existing speaker covers for vehicle (2011 F150 Super Crew) which keeps the factory look intact.
