Thumbs up Polk Speakers

Crutchfield has a deal on Polk db650 speakers, priced from $99 on sale now for $59 with free shipping on orders above $129. I just installed two pair last night...sounds great.

Cheers...

Excellent choice in speakers! A friend of mine replaced the stock Mach system in their Mustang with Polk db550. They sound amazing. Did you add an amp?

Thumbs up Speakers

I have a Pioneer head unit (50W x4) with a Pioneer CD changer. I run it through the original amp. I don't need a lot of power...it is a soft top and I don't want to dump $$$ into audio exquipment. I would rather spend it on proper maintenance. Anyways, the music that blasts in my alloy chariot (D90) would include: Tool, Rage Against the Machine, Bob Marely, Oz (NOT Ozzie Osborne, the Hawiian musician...very cool music I picked up his CD while in Maui), old Metallica (with Cliff Burton before they sold out), Buffet, Dave Matthews...


Cheers...

The Polk db650 drop right in with no cutting. The stock speakers have three mounting screws and the Polk's have four. If you want to use the Polk speaker grill, you will have to drill the four holes in the panels. Hope that helps...


Cheers...

Eric, chances are Mike *Grover* ordered 2 pair, since he couldnt get the discount unless he spent a minimum of $129.

I'd have to say you have great taste in music, but no hip hop or rap???

Going to 'sample' some Oz...

Not a bad set of speakers, an improvement over the blown out sonys they replaced. THe highs are alot more crisp I imagine they will take some time to "break in". Lows arent bad either.

Nice one - thanks for the tip. Have ordered a pair. Shipping was only $6. One of my speakers in the back of the 110 has blown I think, and I have just put in a new Sony head unit. Perfect timing. Thanks!

Did you guys use the Polk speaker grills? The LR grills will not fit. I am thinking about modifying the LR grills to fill for a more "factory" look...
