Tweeter Specifications

Tweeter Size
Refers to the size of the tweeter. Typically, smaller tweeters produces less output with higher frequency response.
1"
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
Flush Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is flush mountable, then it can be installed flush to the mounting surface.

When installing a flush mount tweeter, make sure that there is enough room behind the mounting surface for the tweeter and magnet. Check the mounting depth with your specific vehicle.

Yes
Surface Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is surface mountable, then it can be installed to be raised above the mounting area.

When installing a surface mountable tweeters, make sure that there are no obstructions that will prevent the tweeter from being installed correctly.

Yes
Angled Mount
If the speaker or tweeter is able to be angle mounted, then the installed tweeter can be positioned at an angle. An angle mounted tweeter can improve the audible sound quality of your system.

When installing a angle mountable tweeters, make sure that there are no obstructions that will prevent the tweeter from being installed correctly.

Yes
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".
92 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).
4000 - 23000 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
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.
1-3/16"
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.
1-1/32"

These sound BEAUTIFUL!

May 30, 2011

At first I installed some Power Acoustik NB-1's I got as a freebie with an order I placed with Sonic into the dash of my wife's Nissan XTERRA. I felt awful for doing that afterwards because those were THEE WORST sounding P.O.S's EVER!! Feeling bad about what I'd done to her setup I wanted to make it right. I was impressed with the db401's I put inot my MoTo so I decided to buy these to fix her problem. Fix them it DID!! Wow... now I'm seriously considering going thru the hassle of buying a set of these for my car and mounting them to the A-pillars. And I'm not a "tweeter guy" at all. But in the system I put into her car... it just... it just Wow'd me how these turned the system from being something ya just couldn't turn up at all because it harshed your ears out... into this super-wow ultra-crisp "I'm-sitting-right-in-the-middle-of-the-music" experience! Oh SO Happy with these!

They are NOT garbage - only if you do a GARBAGE INSTALL!

February 17, 2013

These tweeters are not garbage as someone claimed they were! They are one of the best sounding 1" tweeters I have heard for under $100 IF you DON'T do a GARBAGE INSTALLATION. I have these running off a MB Quart 4.60 so they are getting full power. I set my gains with a scope and therefore they sound fantastic at any volume. Ask any pro installer, clipping destroys tweeters FAST! So does garbage installations. Its funny how people blame products for their poor installations all the time lol.

awesome sound

April 2, 2014

i ride a bagger and already have an amp and speakers in addition to the factory system. i have tried several different tweeters to add to what i thought was a good system. i have always had a problem at 70 mph, the exhaust would drown it out. after i added the db1001 tweeters not only was the sound clear, at 70 i have to turn them down. nice quality piece. the price from sonic was far less then everyone else

Good Quality For Price

September 27, 2013

Have these mounted in the columns of a 2010 Ford Taurus. 4 DB571's in the doors powered by an Alpine amp and an Infinity BassLink round out the sound system. The 1001's are a great choice and bring out the guitars and cymbals nicely. When you're looking at tweeters in this price range, the polk's do a nice job. Minimal wash out in the highs. Not much brassy or tinny over-tones either. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Not all of us can afford a component system and polk makes quality products for the mainstream who want better sound without breaking the bank. As with all replacement speakers, power it with a decent amp. It makes all the difference in the world in sound quality. Pros: Quality to Price Ratio Very Good Cons: Highs wash out slightly at higher volumes but what do you expect at this price? A great value for improved sound however.

Takes the Heat

October 26, 2011

These tweeters are great, taking a full RMS wattage load for extended periods of time with no loss of quality or damage. These are, by far, the best tweeters in the price range, hands down. These replaced a set of Image Dynamics tweeters that couldnt take the recommended wattage (and whose warranty was worthless after the company imploded), and the quality is even better. The only complaint was that they seem to be slightly bigger than a standard tweeter, so I had to do some minor Dremel work on my mounts, but it wasnt that big of a deal. I didnt use the included crossovers either, so I cant comment on them. By the design, I wouldnt recommend putting them somewhere with moisture buildup, like in the door. But, thats common for tweeter crossovers.

Best tweeter i had so far!

October 9, 2011

Amazing sound quallity. I had DLS, Alpine and Harman Kardon tweeters but none can match the sound quality that Polk Audio brings. My buddy who is a professional car audio technician was surprised when he heard the music that came out from these baby's. I highly recommend them. It is loud considering it is 60watts RMS but it is not harsh on the ears. Replace your old tweeter with this and you wont regret it.

Super Upgrade

May 19, 2011

These will make your factory stereo sound like an expensive aftermarket. I just spliced these into the front speaker leads and used double-sided tape to stick them to the upper corners of the windshield where the sound disperses nicely and they're out of the way. My Jeep Cherokee sounds like a concert hall now. It's the best $60 I've spent on my vehicle. Thanks Sonic Electronix.
