Polk Audio db6501
Released March, 2007
The Pros:Able to fit easily into spaces that stock tweeters go in. Treble and bass power high enough they can be set to flat on the stereo. Bass is strong and well represented.
The Cons:Requires a break-in period before it starts to sound the way it should.
The Polk Audio db6501 are pair of 6.5” 2-way component car-audio loudspeakers made out of dynamic balance polymer/mica composites and wrapped in durable butyl rubber surrounds. An upgrade from the db5251, the db6501 utilizes a larger speaker (6.5” versus 5.25”), higher peak power handling (300w versus 250w), and lower frequency response (35Hz-23kHz versus 53Hz-23kHz).

The db6501 also includes a 1” liquid-cooled silk/polymer composite dome tweeter, flush & surface mount swivel cups for placement flexibility, and muscular ABS Grilles. Unlike any other previous speakers in the Audio db series, the Audio db6501 comes supplied with adapter rings cited as enabling it to fit both 6.5” and 6.75” mounting openings in VWs, Audis, BMWs, and European imports. The Polk Audio db6501 also features an electronic tweeter protection circuit and vented crossover housing, making it a formidable counterpart to the db5251.
