Hi Guys,

i'm sure this has been asked - does the external tweeter that comes with the Polk DB6501 component speakers fit in the factory clarion external tweeter cup that comes on 2003 era clarion systems?

Any pictures?


Thanks,
Austin

So I went out on a limb and purchased the db6501s hoping the tweeter would fit - and we have a winner!

For all of those out there looking to replace the factory clarion external tweeter with something, the db6501 seems to be a great choice with one exception - the front tweeter in the 2003 X2 is angled back towards the cabin and does not precisely fit the new tweeter cups. I used the flush mounts and the previous tweeter cups left a single screw hole exposed - will try to provide pictures if anyone is interested in doing something similar.
