More science than magic

Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic CX 160 component speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. The woofer's rigid injected polypropylene (IPP) cone 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 160'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 and still keep the installation neat.

Installation note: You'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters in the factory locations.

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 speakers for the price

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good sound for the price and size. The bass is pretty good for the size. I have purchased products from Crutchfield before and the price, accessories, and the tech support can't be beat. Let's face it, those who want deep bass will have to get a 10-12 inch woofer and subwoofer. I had to tear apart the stock tweeter and modify it to mount the Blaupunkt tweeter in it so that it would sit cleanly like the stock one. Worked out great!

Pros: The accessories that Crutchfield supplies made the install quick and easy.

Cons: The speaker bracket for the 6 1/2 needed a little customizing, but works great!

Much better than stock JBL speakers!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These replaced the stock JBL premium speakers in my Sequoia. I am still using the stiock head unit and JBL amp and these 3 ohm speakers sound great! The rear speakers are still stock and there is not a significant volume difference them and the Blue Magic.

Pros: Better sound sound than factory installed speakers.

Cons:

OK speakers for an OK speaker price

2001 Mazda Miata
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had a lot budget for stereo equipment in my Miata (since it's a 'vert and who spends a lot of money on an open-top car's stereo?) so I went with these Blaupunkt to match the similarly branded head unit. My car had spots for tweeters at the top of the doors, so I wanted a component system for under $100 and this was it. Installation was pretty easy, no thanks to my car's previous owner and they hack job they did on the car's speaker mounting points. Now that they're in...well, they're there. I'm not even sure the sound quality is all that much improved over stock. Bass is so-so and some of the highs sound piercing to my ears at higher volumes.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Sound really isn't particularly good when powered directly from a head unit

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The components sound great in my 99 Tahoe, But I think Blaupunkt could have added a few small brackets for the tweeters I was able to install them in the same mounting locations were the old one's were WITHOUT any Modification's they fit between the 2 tabs just right I used duct tape to hold them from moving and duct tape to hold crossovers to the door panel ..I hate modifying things when I don't have too.

Pros: great sound ,easy to install

Cons:

Features

Size Note: Although the woofer is classified as a 6-1/2, the cutout required to mount it is larger than most other 6-1/2s; please check the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm fit in your vehicle.

Woofer Magnet Cover: Each woofer has a rubber cover over the magnet. This cover is removable, useful when installing the speaker in tight mounting applications.

Note: The speaker measurements in "Features and Specs" were taken with the rubber cover removed; including the cover, the woofer's dimensions are:

  • Mounting Depth: 2.293"
  • Magnet Diameter: 3.38"

Tweeter Mounting Options: The tweeter can be flush mounted, surface mounted, or surface mounted at an angle using the included adapters. The tweeter comes mounted in the flush mount housing, the angled surface mount housing is included, and combining the top of the angled housing and the bottom of the flush housing creates the standard surface mount housing. The angled housing surface mounts the tweeter at approximately 45°. Once the tweeter is mounted in any of the housings, it can be angled to optimize imaging.

Tweeter Dimensions:

  Flush Mount Surface Mount Angled Surface Mount
Mounting Height 0.35" 1.1" 1.65"
Depth 0.75" 0.625" (screw depth) 0.625" (screw depth)
Frame Diameter 2.125" 1.825" N/A
Cutout Diameter 1.827" N/A N/A
Frame Width N/A N/A 1.81"
Frame Length N/A N/A 1.84"

Crossovers: Input and output wires are attached to the crossovers. The inputs are 8' long with tinned bare wire on the end. The outputs for both the woofer and tweeter are 28" long and are terminated with quick slides for easy connection to the drivers. No crossover point frequency or slope specifications are provided.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 1-7/8"
  • Height: 1"
  • Depth: 1-1/4"
