8-inch single voice coil 4 Ohm subwoofer
Incredible Sound, Affordable Price
It’s all here. All the Polk goodness and technology that makes our subwoofers a kickin’ addition to any vehicle’s audio system, as only Polk can deliver.
“Dished” polypropylene cone supported by a vented cone/coil coupler stiffens the cone for greater mechanical stability and lower distortion.
Marine Certified Polk db Series speakers are built tough to withstand the toughest environments so they are perfect for use in boats of all types. That’s why Correct Craft offers Polk speakers in their award-winning Nautiques ski and wakeboarding boats.
Santoprene surround is impervious to extremes in temperature, humidity and exposure to sunlight for excellent long term reliability.
Fire-retardant flat NOMEX® spider allows extended linear motion while providing highly reliable mechanical and thermal stability.
Triple venting of the 4-layer Kapton voice coil former, cone/coil coupler and pole piece contribute to the high power handling and reliability of the db Series subs.
As with all Polk subwoofers, the voice coil alignment, motor and suspension were optimized using a state-of-the-art Klippel laser analyzer. The result is superior cone travel linearity for flatter response and lower distortion.
Dual voice coil version also available - db840DVC
Optional db8G grille is available.
All Polk products are made using the best materials and the most advanced manufacturing techniques. They pass the industry’s most exhaustive quality tests, including drop testing, extreme signal response and UV & salt exposure testing. Polk loudspeakers are built to perform for a lifetime.

Very tight, big sound
No terminal connectors
For how small this thing is it puts out some very strong, clean sound. Don't spend $200 on a subwoofer unless you have money falling out of your pockets. I paid $70 for this one after that you're just buying prestige. One little bit of advice. If your putting this in a sealed enclosure, you'll need at least 185 RMS this thing is rated at. I'm using 200 RMS and that seems just about right.
