More science than magic

Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic CX 130 component speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. A rigid injected polypropylene (IPP) woofer works with its rubber surround to deliver extended excursion for stronger mids and lows. You can install each adjustable 1" PEI tweeter up closer to your listening position, so you get the full effect of the vibrant highs in your music. With a little work, these components will give you a big jump in sound quality over your tired factory speakers.

The CX 130's design includes more ventilation to draw heat away from the voice coil on the woofer, so it'll handle handle higher power from an amp while still being efficient enough to work with a car stereo. The in-line crossovers ensure smooth imaging, so you enjoy the full depth of your music. You can flush- or surface-mount the tweeters, so you can create the best possible soundstage while keeping the installation neat.

Product Highlights:

  • component speaker system includes 2 woofers, 2 tweeters, and 2 woofer grilles
  • 5-1/4" injected polypropylene woofer with rubber surround
  • 1" PEI dome tweeter
  • black steel basket
  • ventilated voice coil for heat dissipation
  • power range: 2-53 watts RMS (240 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 50-22,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 91 dB
  • 3-ohm impedance works with a factory radio, an aftermarket car stereo, or an amplifier
  • woofer top-mount depth: 2-1/4"
  • metal grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why install component speakers?

A component speaker system gives you the best possible performance from your car audio system. A system consists of separate woofers, tweeters, and crossovers, each designed to cover one specific range of frequencies. As separate components, the woofer can move freely to deliver more powerful performance, while the tweeter can be custom-mounted in a better spot up closer to your ears, revealing a whole new world of detail. Separate crossovers are far superior to the simple filters wired into full-range speakers, so the components work together for smoother, more focused sound.

Good value replacement in a 1999 Mazda Miata

Written By Marius, California on Sunday, June 07, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

INSTALLATION After upgrading my Miata's head unit, I wanted to replace the factory speakers which were now in danger of getting blown out. My Miata came with the base level 5x7 speakers and nothing mounted in the spot in the door where the tweeters go. It was pretty straightforward installing these along with the 5x7 adapter. The crossovers come with very long wires, I ended up cutting them fairly short and using zip ties to stop the rest from rattling around in the door. If you take the tweeters out of the supplied housing, you can put them in the recess in the door and then hold them in with a metal strip (I used plumber's tape) which you can screw on if you find some tiny screws. I used some double-sided sticky foam to mount the crossover box so that it would stay in place.

SOUND QUALITY The factory speakers had marginally better bass response than these. The CX130's treble is way too high (probably in part because the tweeters are nearer to me than the woofers); I wish I could adjust the crossover and turn them down, but instead I compensated on the head unit. After doing this they still have a very nice clear high end. The mid range is a little poor, but I've yet to hear any speakers in this price range that have a decent mid range. On the bass response issue, turning it up on the head unit does nothing, because the speakers are simply too small.

Overall I'm happy with these, but kind of wish I'd bought the CX160 to possibly improve the bass situation.

Pros: Installation was very easy Good sound quality overall

Cons: Tweeters too loud, have to compensate in head unit Bass response no better than the factory speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speakers fit into the doors and the door panels very nicely. Sound really good too.

Pros: Inexpensive as compared to other brands.

Cons: The mounting brackets that came with it had to be severely trimmed in order to fit in the door panels of my 1994 Firebird Trans-Am.

Very nice!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed this component system in the front doors of my 2003 Ford Sport Trac. Used adapter bracket to fit in 5x7 opening. I haven't been able to install my Kenwood head unit yet. But even the OEM unit makes these speakers shine. Can't wait to see what the Excelon does!

Pros: Solid construction; Uncomplicated installation; Great sound quality...

Cons: Tweeters a bit sharp. But as another review stated, adjusting the position works wonders!

Blaupunkt Blue Magic CX 130 5 1/4

Written By TC, Long Island, NY on Saturday, October 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these on my 18 year old Volvo 850 Turbo, Platinum Edition Wagon. The car came with an excellent stereo from the factory, as car stereos go. It has a 40 watt per channel head unit that is relatively clean even now. But the speakers were getting tired and the tweeters on the coaxial rear doors were broken, so it was time for some new speakers. These went into my front doors near perfect fit with a set of Infinity Primus PR6500cs in my rear doors. I mounted the tweeters on the mirror cap located on the A pillar. They sound nice in the midrange and have some bass more than my original speakers, I get my bass from the larger 6 ½ Infinities in the rear. The laws of physics apply here there is only so much air a 5 ¼ cone can move but what they move they move well , they are detailed , and are a sensitive speaker so my 18 year old head unit still sounds great. Their sensitivity is appreciated in a car of that volume, it is a lot of space to fill and they do it well. The highs from the tweeters are sharp I had to play with their aiming to soften the highs. Overall a nice speaker, it can play loud and clean.

Pros: Good mids, good sensitivity, nice vocals, well made, good hardware.

Cons: As much bass as a 5 1/4 cn deliver, tweeters can be a bit sharp, their direction can be adjusted so some of this can be cleaned up.

These speakers are a good replacement for the factory pair, which tore apart.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used these as a replacement on my 2009 MINI cooper. I could not get the mounting kit to line up with the holes. In the end I just used self tapping screws to go directly int the interior door plastic.

Sound quality is much better than the OEM units they replaced.

Pros: Good sound They fit in the hole

Cons: Mounting kit.

Quality sound... Great price considering they came with separate high quality tweeters. If you don't need tweeters, though, don't order these.
