Default Mixing component speakers

Currently I have 5 1/4 Polk DB5252's in the doors.In the future if I wanted to go with a 6 1/2 woofer instead could I just swap it with another and leave the tweeter and crossover in place? Could I do a different brand as well? If the answer is no,what are the reasons?Thanks for any input!

If there is a Polk set of 6.5s using the same crossover, yes you can. If not, unless you are very lucky or experienced the answer is "maybe".

No problem mixing and matching if you run active, but crossovers should be matched to your drivers (roughly at least)

So you mean if I find some Polk DB series in 6.5's then its a go.Everything else is a crapshoot? How could you tell if the crossover would match the driver/tweeter?

No, he's saying if the Polk DB Series 6.5s use the same crossover as the one you have, you're good to go. The crossover shouldn't be the same since a 6.5 and a 5.25 should be crossed differently.

Actually,I looked and there is an exact set in a 6.5.Same crossover it appears as well.But the site(Crutchfield)is saying it won't fit my car because of height issues.With the adapter bracket I already have,couldn't I mount the woofer on the underside to eliminate the height issue?Attached is a picture of my door.The woofer is on a Scosche bracket and that is attached to a 6x9 opening.
