Overview

Our take on the Blaupunkt Blue Magic CX 170

Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic CX 170 component speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. The 6-3/4" 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.

More science than magic

Nothing up the sleeve here! Blaupunkt's Blue Magic CX 170 component speakers offer high-end construction and materials at an affordable price. The 6-3/4" 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 170'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 keep the installation neat.

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

Great sounding speakers, vary clean and powerful. Due to the size, the low end deep sound your not going to get. Pares well with a sub.

powered by factory Toyota amplifier

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Front door speaker install: The door speaker install went well, but I did have to cut the factory speaker harness and crimp the wires together. For some reason the Crutchfield-supplied harness didn't snap into place, so it would easily disconnect when I went to screw everything back together. Mounting the speaker required that I shave down two plastic tabs on the factory speaker ring. It didn't take much effort to do so. I also had to open up the four mounting holes on the speaker itself because the speaker holes didn't reach far enough to the original mounting holes. Again, not a big deal. Once that was all done the speaker easily cleared the window, and the door panel went back on without an issue. Tweeter install: Since I was connecting these to the factory Toyota amp I didn't use the included Blaupunkt crossover. The factory tweeter wires come directly from the output side of the Toyota amp. The install went well. Crutchfield didn't supply a harness so I just clipped the original Toyota harness and crimped them to the Blaupunkt connections. The tweeter didn't fit exactly into the original tweeter spacer so I used RTV silicone ($5 at Home Depot) and glued the tweeter into the original tweeter pod. The original Toyota speakers were 2ohm, but installing 4ohm Blaupunkt compenents was a very good decision. They are affordable, and sound fantastic (plenty of bass to fill in my music selection of pop, rap, rock, and even helps with ESPN sports talk radio)!

Pros: Fills in the bass, and mids very well for those long daily drives to and from work. The speakers have even made listening to ESPN sports talk radio even more enjoyable as the voices now sound very natural. For the price I couldn't have made a better decision.

Cons: I had to modify the speaker basket a bit to fit into my 2001 Toyota Sienna. Maybe not all of the holes should be completely circled.

Awesome!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great sounding speakers, vary clean and powerful. Due to the size, the low end deep sound your not going to get. Pares well with a sub.

Pros: Powerful Clean Sound, good build quality.

Cons: Tend to be lean on the mids/highs, sub is needed to balance out system.

Not bad

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They sound a lot better than my original speakers, but the bass isn't too high. It's not bad for the price I paid for these.

Pros: Easy to install, tweeters look awesome

Cons: The bass isn't great

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

clear sound even though I'm still using the factory head unit it's a good start to up grade the HD later on

Pros: easy install clear sound with a factory radio

Cons: you have to make your own bracket for the tweeters no big deal

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good quality, easy install, I appreciated the multiple mounting options it made the job easier. Also the cutout available on the box was a nice surprise. Great sound stage, which was perfect for my installation in an RV. Would recommend

Pros: Easy mounting and multiple mounting option. Great sound

Cons:

All around performance

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Blaupunkt has been around a long time. I have purchsed head units and speakers from them before, and this component set did not disappoint either. Build quality is great, and the tweeter mounting options made install pretty easy. Once I got them installed and got to listen to them, I was pleased with the sound quality as well. This component set is a great value. My only complaint is minor. I don't care for the bright blue woofer cone. I'm glad it's behind a door panel. lol

Pros: build quality, mounting options, sound quality

Cons: bright blue woofer cone.

Features

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: 2.405"
  • 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)

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"

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

I've had Blaupunkt components in the past from Crutchfield, and they were surprisingly good. The price was also very similar, so I don't think it'll be an issue installing these into my 2001 Toyota Sienna XLE with the JBL audio system. I probably won't be using the crossover though as the factory JBL amplifier already splits the freqs from tweeter to door speaker. [ NamKhoa  Apr 29, 2016 ]
trying to increase my bass in system [ Ronnie  Apr 17, 2016 ]

2 questions already asked

Doesn't sound like tin. With original head unit it will actually expand the range of sound a bit. I put these in a 2008 Toyota Corolla and they noticeably helped. [ Keith  Apr 05, 2016 ]
Hey sounded good in my car, powered by my stereo. I would consider them good sound for the money. [ Chad  Apr 04, 2016 ]
They're OK. They don't have the full sound you would get with a dedicated 3-way with a big subwoofer, but the overall sound is balanced for what these are. I am not unhappy with having them in my car. [ Thomas  Apr 04, 2016 ]
The grills on the tweeters are not removable, and I have to say that they give exceptional sound [ DAVID  Feb 07, 2016 ]
Not that I know of. The tweeter comes with a removable swivel back. But the grill is part of the tweeter. Hope this helps [ Tom  Feb 06, 2016 ]
No they are glued or pressed into the housing. The trim ring around the tweeter is a separate piece though, if that helps. [ Chad  Feb 06, 2016 ]
Yes they are. With multiple mounting options. Sound awesome in my Equinox [ Pamela Jean  Feb 06, 2016 ]
