    Default Polk DB651 or DB651s?

    I know there are quite a few folks in here that have Polk speakers in their vessel. Do the standard DB651 speakers fit or did you have to use the shallow version of that speaker, the DB651s?

    Rugburn,

    I just installed the DB651 version in my 07 outback with no clearance problems.

    Say any pics of your wrap job yet?

    Thanks for the input guys. Im still working on the art for my wrap, Im just about done with it. I just need to put it down and make it, I keep tweaking it and messing with it.

    Next week Im getting the factory ballast put in my LSV by the Moomba dealer near Lake Geneva. I just couldnt bring myself to drill that huge hole in the hull for the intake and I didnt want to "T" off the engine intake.

    Looks great. Where did you pick up the chrome grab rails? Were they easy to install?

    Thanks.......I got them from the dealer, I get almost all of my interior stuff from them. They were easy to install, I did have to use a flat bladed screwdriver to rise the pyle of the carpet up. The other ones were thicker at the base and it would have shown had I not have.

    The DB675 are a 6 .75 size speaker vs. the magnadyne(poop) speaker.
    They are very bright sounding speakers, in a car they would not be my first choice. However in an open air environment they shine, shine, shine.

    I have six Polk DB651 standard speakers installed in the factory holes on my 2005 Outback. They sound awesome!!
