Our take on the Blaupunkt GTX542SC

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.

Why listen to your old factory speakers when an affordable upgrade is within reach? Blaupunkt merges reliability with value in their GT Silver Cone Series speaker line.
These GT Silver Cone Series GTX542SC 5-1/4" speakers feature polypropylene woofer cones that deliver accurate, full-bodied sound. Mylar semi-dome tweeters reproduce the vocal and instrumental details smoothly and cleanly. Give your car's stereo system a new lease on life – these Blaupunkt speakers bring back all the sounds that your old factory speakers miss. Grilles are included.

Highlights:

  • 2-way 5-1/4" speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer with treated foam surround
  • 1" Mylar semi-dome tweeter
  • power range: 2-40 watts RMS (180 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 70-20,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-3/4"

Perfect fit

Written By Anonymous, Slinger, wi on Sunday, December 09, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These dropped right into my 88 325i convertible. Crisped up the highs and mid perfectly. Wasn't looking for bass as I have a sub system in the trunk. No disappointment for me.
Pros:
Sold as advertised.
Cons:
None. Do your homework and you won't be let down.

Great upgrade for stock head unit

Written By Pete, NY on Monday, November 26, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced stock 2005 Jeep Wrangler speakers with these, used adapter plates for front to increase size from stock 4x6. Sounds better than when Jeep was new. Clear highs and great midrange in roll bar pods.
Pros:
Direct fit, great sound for lower powered head unit. Crutchfield provided free harness adapters so no cutting was required. True plug & play.
Cons:
None

"fits" doesn't mean it fits

Written By EricL, Theresa, NY on Sunday, November 18, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Although Crutchfield lists this as fitting the rear doors of my 2005 Trailblazer they are too small. I modified with stuff I had in the garage. No too happy with the sound either. The factory 8 ohm speakers are much better sounding. I ended up adding a second set to the 3rd row of seats. They do deliver more highs than the stock one too but the EQ balanced that out.
Pros:
Price
Cons:
Website listed it wrong for application. Strong highs.
