Are these an improvement over the "Premium" Infinity speakers?

Wondering the same thing.

Not to derail and I know the topic is Polk Audio replacement but I just have to share that I finalized my Addictive Audio instal with the components up front, coaxials in the sports bar and an enclosed 12" sub powered thru a dedicated sub amp and BOOM-This jeep sounds awesome.

Finally got them installed. Way better than stock. Muddled midrange from stock is much clearer. Had my 11yo kid choose when I had one in and stock she definitely noticed the Polk without prompt.

While base is better than stock its still not blow you away. Was hoping for more as I'm taking the useless sub-woofer out when I put Tuffy enclosure in soon. Its livable & a jeep & will be topless most of summer.

Install mistakes:
Saw dash was pain and was busy with work. Against my better judgment had local Audio shop install fronts for $65. They said it was first jeep and next jeep they do they will charge more cause it was a pain. So I pick it up and notice vibration in passenger side front. Instead of taking it back, take it out myself today. One screw stripped and 1/4" out, no speaker gasket, crappy crimps and exposed wire from stripping 1". Hopefully driver side holds ups considering crappy job they did. Also can see where they pried trim (Audio Sensation, Exton PA) Did rears myself.

Lesson learned do it yourself next time.

Sooo these are 4 ohm speakers, correct? I swear someone on here said they were 2, but that does not look like the case.

def. 4 Ohm, RMS @ 55w, peak @ 165.overall the db651/bd651sis a good upgrade at a reasonable price

Anyone have pics of a DB651 installed? And will it fit the front as well?

I'm talking the DB651, NOT the DB651s.

Here is a great link (which also links to a ton of pics) on the difference between the two.

I would prefer the non slim version as they get down to 35hz.

I would love to do DB6501's all the way around....but that would require a bit more drilling than I'm willing to do on a brand new vehicle.

I may mall crawl...but I look good doing it.....

Just as an FYI for anyone installing the db651 into a 2012 JKU soundbar

1. Regarding the soundbar baffles that come with the speakers, or the baffles that are included with crutchfield -the holes did not line up correctly with the stock location. Easy fix, on the baffle, I just drilled another hole 1mm from the original hole on one of the tabs

Also, the screws that came with the speaker to attach the grill were either too short (did not hold grill to speaker to baffle) or too long (would drill into the actual soundbar). Fixed by finding shorter screws

Regarding sound - I installed one side speaker and was able to compared stock with db651. The polks sound richer and do not give off a flat echo-ish sound.

Good buy
