Incredible Sound, Affordable Price
The pros know that really good
stuff at a really good price is
where it’s at. So we took really
good stuff, grabbed it by the
neck, held it down and force-fed
it Creatine and Ginko Biloba. We
mixed it up with patented Polk
technologies and a reckless
desire for big volume output.
We created speakers with better
performance, bigger volume and
better value. Plus we made sure
they were super efficient. So the
db Series sounds fantastic with
OEM factory radios or installed
systems, not to mention highpowered after-market head units.
The db Series is classic
Polk Audio: performance
and durability at a price
that will rock the house,
never your wallet.

marine audio
Marine Certified
After we made our db Series
products perform superbly in
a car, we took them where few
speaker components dare go:
on the water. Our engineers
and designers wanted to put
our product to the test, so they
subjected everything to the
scrutiny of ASTM (American
Society for Testing and Materials) to ensure the db speakers
performed as well on the
water as on the boulevard.
The db Series products were
put under a series of grueling
accelerated weathering tests
to see if they could stand up to
the harsh marine environment.
We subjected them to hundreds
of hours of salt fog, intense Ultra
Violet light and temperatures
ranging from minus 40° C (-40° F)
to +85° C (+185° F). And guess
what? They passed with flying
colors. That’s what superior
materials and engineering get
you—supreme reliability on
land and sea.

Correct Craft, two
leaders in high quality
watercraft, specify and offer
Polk products for their boats,
testament to the quality and
reliability of the db Series.
