Our take on the Blaupunkt BGX542

by John Pollard
Blaupunkt

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Are you looking to improve the audio in your vehicle? Then check out Blaupunkt's BGX542 5-1/4" speakers. These BG Series speakers come equipped with Mylar semi-dome tweeters and polypropylene woofers to give you details in music that your factory speakers just can't recreate. Grilles are included.

  • 1" Mylar semi-dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-40 watts RMS (170 watts peak power)

Value For The Price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice speakers. Were installed in the rear upper headliner of a Jeep Cherokee. A definite upgrade over the stock speakers. I did install a set of Infinity 5.25 in the front doors, and these do not match the performance or sound quality of those. Affordable and good enough for my son's vehicle.
