The DB691 6×9 car speakers come set in a stainless steel basket. The set arrives with two bottom mount brackets, screws, and speed clips for installation. This elegant pair of 6x9 3-way component speakers weighs only 5-pounds and measures 8 x 14.5 x 4.8 inches.

The set is made from a mixture of materials including a silk-dome tweeter and mica cone woofer that maintains good sound quality at any volume. It also has rubber surround that adds to the bass response and improves the lifetime of the speaker. The Polk Audio is marine certified and can find many applications like a great car stereo system. The set does not offer much with regards to speaker mesh. The tweeters, however, have a nominal mesh around them.

Features

  • Equipped with a polymer/mica composite cone with rubber surround
  • Power handling of 125 Watts RMS per speaker with a peak of 600 Watts
  • 4-Ohm impedance with +93 dB sensitivity
  • Equipped with one 1-inch liquid-cooled silk-polymer composite dome tweeter and a neodymium magnet
  • Durable butyl rubber surround that does well under extreme temperatures, sunlight, etc.

Since these are component speakers, you’ll realize their full potential after connecting it to an amplifier since the head unit alone will not provide enough power. We hooked this baby to a Pioneer DEH-P7200HD CD Receiver head unit and a Rockford Fosgate 300 Watt amplifier and the results were mind-blowing.

The bass is great, going very low before showing any hints of distortion even before being connected to the amplifier. When given the proper power, in our case around 110 Watts per channel, this system fully rocks! The 3-way speakers also come with two tweeters per speaker, hence making the mids and highs a lot crisper—almost as if you are in the front row of a concert.

As long as you get the tuning right, you can listen to all kinds of music. Podcasts, lectures, and other recordings are also clearly audible even in loud environments.
