Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic CL 100 4" speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. Each speaker features a rigid injected polypropylene (IPP) woofer that works with its rubber surround to produce accurate mids and lows. Combine that with a sensitive PEI tweeter for your highs, and you'll get faithful reproduction of all your music.

Ample power handling, tough design, and a low profile make these Blaupunkts a great choice for replacing your stock speakers. Their included grilles also enable you to use them in a custom installation. You can power these efficient speakers with a factory radio, an aftermarket car stereo, or an amplifier.

Great speaker with great sound. My son chose these speakers for his 1995 Jeep Wrangler sound bar.

Solid little speakers for a near-factory replacement.

Evan from Silver Spring, MD on 10/7/2016

1992 Volvo 240 Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers sound far better than the early 1990s factory models in my Volvo. The quirk of them is that you should really endeavor to use the factory speaker mounts if you can, if they're not broken, on a Volvo 240. The included new covers won't easily fit the door contours without spacers and further adapters, and the original plastic mounts will allow use of the factory speaker covers as well as providing some reinforcement to the older door panel. If you drill out the rivets holding the plastic factory mounts to your front door panels (this takes longest of any part), you can screw these new speakers right into the same rivet holes using the included reinforcement clips. The Volvo door mounts need to have the plastic trimmed a little around the screw holes to fit the metal of the speaker frame, but it's easy with a utility knife or dremel. Make sure you trim equally to center the speaker and screw holes--it's only a few millimeters worth of plastic in the way. Took me about an hour to remove both front door panels, remove my original speakers, and install these new ones. Easy peasy, just be careful with the brittle plastics and MDF of the door panel. Works great! Just a very minor set of adjustments to make them fit. Sound spectacular by comparison, and they're actually smaller than the 5.25" factory speakers while still fitting in the predrilled factory holes.

Pros: Sound great. Near-factory fit. Only very minor adjustment. Look nice.

Cons: Requires minor adjustment to fit in factory mounts

1995 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speaker with great sound. My son chose these speakers for his 1995 Jeep Wrangler sound bar.

Pros: definitely a better look and sound that replaced his kenwood speakers that were installed. got rid of the rattle and distortion.

Cons: A little difficult to install into the sound bar. Took a lot longer than expected, but well worth the time

Nice 4"

Drsmooth from Washington on 9/29/2016

1992 Toyota Pickup
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid, compact and well made. The bass is a little disappointing, but yeah it's a 4" speaker so it's not surprising. Like another reviewer, the wiring harness didn't match my 91 Toyota pickup but I was able to reuse the old harness pretty easily.

Pros: Pretty good! Also, recyclable packaging is always a bonus

Cons: Wrong wiring harness

Glad I took the chance on these

1991 Toyota MR2
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Crutchfield didn't have any speakers listed for behind the B-pillar on my MR2, so I measured the space and took a chance. Only three of the four possible mounting holes were used, but in combination with the other speakers I already had installed, these are NICE!

Pros: Good full-range sound. Solid mount surfaces.

Cons:

Great speakers!!!

Jim from Los Angeles, CA on 8/23/2016

1992 Toyota Pickup
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Marvelous speakers! Wish I'd replaced my old set years ago! I honestly had not expected a lot, but sound quality is 200% better.

Pros: Excellent sound in a 4" speaker! Easy Installation!

Cons: Wrong wiring harness sent for 92 Toyota PU (understandable!). Was able to use harness off old speakers so no problem!

Better then expected.

Phil from Woodward, OK on 4/18/2016

1980 MG MGB
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers were shot with the recent purchase of my "new" MGB. Did not want to do any real modifications to the car just yet. So I was stuck with a 4" hole to work with. Are they as loud as I would like...no. But, they have a very nice rich sound to the with a surprisingly decent range of treble of bass for a little guy. The sound they give me at this point is a huge improvement, but will most likely add something bigger in the near future.

Pros: Good sound for the price.

Cons: Well...it is after all, a 4" speaker.

small but good

very efficient and good sound for size

Pros: cheap and good

Cons:

Clear Speakers, great highs

mdaubstep from New York on 1/12/2016

1990 Volvo 240 Series
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers sound really good. They worked well in the older Volvo once we got creative. I will say the base response is a bit weak but it's to be expected with the size of the speaker. I'm okay as I'm also installing a sub but you should know if you buy these.

Pros:

Cons:

It makes sound when I connect it to my stereo

seane from Massachusetts on 11/9/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I needed inexpensive speakers with a better lower range performance than stock speakers my car shipped with. These did the job.

Pros: They fit in a shallow depth mounting space, the low price was pretty good.

Cons: The blue color of the cones and the funky covers could be a little weird for some customers - but I personally don't mind them.

4 inch speakers

Tech from North Carolina on 8/30/2015

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

4 inch full rang speakers

Pros: for 4 inch speakers they did better then i thought they would

Cons: none for the speakers . but the plates that were sent with them were little weak for my liking and did not fit space correctly

Great Speakers

Rod from Wyoming on 5/12/2015

1997 Jeep Wrangler
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought these to replace the factory units in my 1997 Jeep Wrangler. These fit perfectly in the dash with the adapter plate that Crutchfield recommended. It was really a simple plug and play solution.

Pros: Good sound from such a small unit.

Cons:

Nice upgrade for MB Sprinter Van

jjrai from Kingsport, TN on 10/20/2014

2006 Dodge Sprinter
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used these to replace speakers in my 2006 Sprinter van. They are not "exact" replacements, but if you trim the mounting tabs they drop in. I held them down with some two-sided all-weather tape. They sound better than the originals, particularly the highs. Not much bottom end, but work well with a sub-woofer.

Pros: Reasonable price, almost drop-in ready. These appear to be well-made and quality you expect from Blaupunkt. Fast, free shipping.

Cons: None as far as four inch car speakers go.

Great Value and sound

Dave V from Berkeley, Ca on 9/14/2014

2005 Dodge Sprinter
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I replaced my dash speakers in my sprinter van (2005) with these and new head unit. Head unit is 22w rms and these seemed to be only OK. Later in the week I added the DEI baffles with 600hz bass blockers and they came alive. It takes some modding to install in the Sprinter (removing the speaker housing tabs) and I actually put rubber weather stripping around the metal housing so the grill holds them in place once reinstalled by pressing down on the weather stripping (does not interfere with woofer). I am adding this because it pushed the experience from "meh" to "yeah" in the van. I added some Rockford tweeters and rear speakers and a sub the next week, and as part of a system I really appreciate the sound from these. I feel like they would be even better with a stand alone amp and 35w.

Pros: -Look fantastic -Large Magnet -great sound staging -excellent mids -work best with bass blockers -hard workers -baffles seemed to make these come alive in my dash.

Cons: -no bass response (600hz is a great cross over point) -tweeters are only OK -prob a bit under rated to get the best performance (meaning, you prob want more power to them)

That should work fine. Lower impedance means higher current. You don't want overcurrent for the receiver or the speaker, but 3 ohms instead of 4 should be fine. I have a pair connected to an Alpine receiver. [ Lloyd  May 15, 2015 ]
