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.
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.
Installed these in my son's 2000 jeep Cherokee to replace factory speakers. Awesomely easy drop in replacement that just blows away the factory speakers! I had the job done in less than an hour and he's rockin' right along!
Pros: Crutchfield Web-Site for ease of product selection for a specific vehicle. Automatic suggestion for wiring adapters and protective baffles required for front door installation. The step by step instructions that didn't miss a beat and were obviously written by someone that knew the vehicle!! Big Plus!!
Cons: none so far! :-)
I bought four of these for a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee to replace the stock speakers my daughters have been complaining about for years. Also replaced the radio that some scum who stole the car in October ripped out of the dash.
The installation was easy with the mounting adapter and they sound good. Would probably sound better with the baffles behind them but they were out of stock.
Pros: Sound, ease of installation.
Great product for a great price. Sound is very clear
Pros: Easy install, good price
Cons: Not much low end
The speakers were a perfect fit for my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. Definite upgrade to the OEM speakers.
Good, inexpensive basic replacement for blown oem speakers. The installation accessories work perfectly and the vehicle specific instructions are excellent.
Pros: Easy to install, inexpensive
Simply put... for the price, they are Outstanding, I installed these in my sons 2004 Durango (replaced the infinity factory speakers) using the new Sonly 40x4 RMS watt head unit.. Far Superior sound!! If you budget your 'Stuff' like me Get These for the price.. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Price, Price, Price and Sound is Excellent..
Nice sound for a great price.
Pros: Nice sound Nice price
Low price but unfortunately not that quality of sound in my opinion. Of course there's the old adage, you get what you pay for. On something like this I'd have to say it applies. Not bad but not that good. Beats the blown speakers in my doors though.
Pros: Nothing really.
Cons: Nothing really either. Again, don't expect quality sound out of a low dollar speaker.
First off, these speakers were fairly cheap. Usually people assume cheap speakers mean poor sound quality- But I had faith in Blaupunkt. 2 days after I clicked the 'Place Order' button, I had speakers show up on my doorstep. I opened the box to reveal the goodies inside.. the adapter cables for my car and the box with the pair of speakers. They looked and felt high quality. I wanted to test them before putting them in my car. So, I hooked them up to my stereo and played a few songs to see what kind of sound I could get out of them. (Don't hook up car speakers to your home stereo unless you know the stereo supports the speaker's resistance value.) They sounded great, and every sound was very clear. Below are the pros and cons:
Pros: Great quality, extremely clear highs and mids, looks great, and it was cheap!
Cons: They're small speakers, but I thought they would put out just a little more bass than what they did. (Still great overall)
Easy to install, even if you are not "mechanically inclined". Was able to install them and be on the road in less than an hour. They sound really good.
Pros: Easy to install. Arrived quickly.
got these fo rmy 93 jeep cherokee, couldnt have been more of a perfect fit, easy to install and sounds great thanks Crutchfield!
Pros: fit perfectly, sounds great, 30 min installation front and back
It was a great upgrade from factory speakers
Pros: ease of install
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
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.
Good quality, reasonable price upgrade to stock speakers. Perfect fit as advertised.
Pros: Clear sound, good materials, good price
These little two ways live up to my expectations and then some, really just needed to replace the front speakers in my wife's ride do to a blown mid, they sound great not sure if they would hold up to an and but pleased with three purchase.
Pros: Easy install, well built and met many expectations in sound quality.
Cons: None so far.
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.
