Get your soundstage back. Blaupunkt's GTx 542 DE 5-1/4” speakers offer the sonic clarity you want for your music at a budget-friendly price. They're a great option when you want to replace factory speakers that have lost their "stage presence."

The GTx 542 DE 5-1/4” speakers use injected polypropylene (IPP) woofers for lively midrange and low-frequency response. Their 2-way speaker design also includes 1" Mylar dome tweeters which deliver all the details and ambience in your music. The speakers' low profile enables you to install them behind the factory grilles in many vehicles, but they also include stylish protective grilles for custom installations. 

Product Highlights:

  • 5-1/4" 2-way car speakers (pair)
  • injected polypropylene woofer with foam surround
  • 1" Mylar dome tweeter
  • black steel basket
  • power range: 2-40 watts RMS (180 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 70-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-15/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

My music sounds awesome! What a step up from the factory speakers that I had previously blown. Crisp sound! I listen to metal and I can hear and make out the words.now. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Pros: Loud clear sound

Cons: None at this time

A Very Good Choice

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed to replace original equipment for a 93 Honda Civic DX I inherited and now use as a commute car. The car is in great shape but the stereo system was shot with one blown speaker and the other on the way out. These Blaupunkt speakers live up to previous reviews. I'm entirely satisfied.

Pros: Great fit, Crutchfield nailed it. Decent base response.

Cons: Can't think of much. The treble reverb could be the fault of the deck, not the speaker.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They are good little speakers with a good sound. They are probably best used as tweeters or mid ranges given their size.

Pros: Good clean higher note sound.

Cons: They don't fit the space well on Dodge trucks, the old speakers were way bigger than these despite them being on the reccomended list for this particular vehicle. Not a good speaker to put bass out.
