If you like it loud, protect your speakers from bass distortion and enjoy cleaner sound with Bass Blockers. Each Bass Blocker handles up to 50 watts RMS with a 6 dB per octave roll-off. You'll find some general guidelines below for matching Bass Blockers to speaker size. For smaller speakers (3-1/2"s, 4"x6"s, 4"s), the 600 Hz Bass Blockers work well with low-powered systems, while the 800 Hz Blockers are a better choice for high-power applications.

Speaker Size Cut-off Frequency

6-1/2", 5"x7"/6"x8" — 150 Hz
5", 5-1/4" — 300 Hz
3-1/2", 4", 4"x6" — 600 Hz (low power)
3-1/2", 4", 4"x6" — 800 Hz (high power)

These models come fitted with easy-to-use quick-slide connectors that make installation a cinch. There's no splicing or crimping — just slide one of the Bass Blocker's connectors onto your Crutchfield speaker harness and the other Bass Blocker connector onto your speaker's positive terminal.

Cut-off points are at 4 ohms. If you use 8-ohm speakers, the cut-off point is half the listed frequency.

Note: The .250" spade terminals on these Bass Blockers won't connect to the terminals on some car speakers and many speaker harness adapters (such as Metra speaker adapters). If your speakers or harness adapter use a different terminal, we recommend that you buy a 10-pack of female quick slides to splice on the Bass Blockers.

Added much clarity to my Kicker 41KSC354

Written By Anonymous, Georgia on Sunday, September 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After installing a pair of Kicker 41KSC354 in the front dash of my 15' Camry (powered by an Alpine MRV-F300 giving 45W RMS per channel) I noticed they sounded muddy due to the low & mid bass in most of my songs.

Once I wired a pair of these 800Hz bass blockers to their "+" terminals, the sound crystal clear w/ no muddy tunes. It's surprising to see just how much of a drastic improvement the sound stage gets but allowing the 3.5" dash speakers to focus solely on the higher frequencies.

Pros: - Easy to wire - Already comes w/ terminal connectors at the wire ends

Cons: - Not getting it sooner

Worked perfectly

Written By Eric G, New York on Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These worked perfectly on my kicker 3 1/2" speakers. I used to have distortion on the lows and now they are working perfectly and punching hard.

Cons: Connectors were too large for my speakers but just cut off the old one and swapped them out no problem, took 2 extra mins total in installation.

Protect tweeter /high range speakers

Written By Must have for your tweeter speakers, Florida on Thursday, August 06, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Eliminated low range frequencies through my tweeters and in-dash speakers. Installed bass blockers to prevent tweeter flutter and minimize distortion. Easy upgrade to any tweeter!

Pros: Push on connectors ease the job. No worries with overdrivng speaker with bass/low frequencies

Cons: None

600 HZ Bass blockers

Written By JohnT, New York on Monday, June 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Absolutely the solution I needed. I installed 4" Kicker 2 way speakers in my motorcycle fairing and wanted to block the lower frequencies these speakers were never meant to reproduce. They work as advertised. Installation was a breeze, the quality of the product is good, and I felt the price was reasonable when compared to replacing speakers.

Pros: Easily installed and work as promised.

Cons: None

Just installed these on a set of Kicker 3 1/2" in the dash corner speakers. Definitely can hear the difference with and without them. The speakers would distort because to much bass was getting through. Added the bass blockers, problem solved.

Written By ChuckL, Alexandria, KY on Monday, November 17, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The spade lugs on these do not match those on my speakers and wiring harness - they are larger. Because of this, the installation was not as simple as other items I've gotten through Crutchfield. And I have not yet been able to install them because of the need to splice and solder.

Pros: Unable to review because I haven't been able to install them yet.

Cons: Not so easy to install.

These bass blockers work perfect! I've got em on my pioneer 4X6's in the dash of my s10 blazer and the small size fits perfect! My speakers now don't have bass at all so it doesn't distort from bass at all.

Written By Vince, San Jose on Sunday, August 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed these in my front speakers of my 2007 F150.They work great for blocking that low end boom that causes the 6x8 Pioneer the distort.If you are getting a garble sound to your speaker at higher volume then this is what you need.I turns you door speakers into just mid to high range speakers.Leaving your sub to do all the low's. My only gripe is the cost.

Pros: Works as describe.

Cons: Cost to much for what you get. 5 buck would be more reasonable. Electrolytic capacitor are cheap.

Work Great

Written By Albert, Mystic, CT on Tuesday, July 29, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Put these in my Jeep TJ when installing a 12" Subwoofer. I upgraded the factory speakers but they are still small 3" and 5" speakers unable to carry any real bass. The Bass Blockers made it easy to cut the low end out of the jeep speakers and run it all through the Sub. I just wanted an inexpensive and easy way to set up the system and this worked great.

Pros: Easy to install and does exactly as advertised.

Cons: I bought the female connectors as recommended but ended up needing male connectors also. Ended up having to run to the store anyway to get the right connections.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Worked exactly as advertised and inexpensive. Did a very good job cleaning up the bass distortion in my 3.5" Kicker CS series dash speakers.

Cons: The spade terminals provided are larger than those found on most spealers so you'll either have to modify them by cutting them a little narrower (as I did) or just replace them with proper sized spades.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After installing Kicker 6x9 speakers front and rear I put 3.5 inch Kickers in the dash. The dash speakers over powered the front door speakers. Installing the 600hz bass blockers did the trick. Now the bass is back where it belongs with mids and highs in the dash for a nice sound field.

Pros: Easy install.

Cons: None.

150 hz Bass Blockers

Written By Mdlbldrnt, Sioux Falls SD on Sunday, April 06, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had never heard of bass blockers. I went to Crutchfield with questions about trim plates. They could not help me with that issue however, after a brief description of what I had and what I was trying to do I purchased bass blockers in the 150hz frequency range. I installed these along with a sound ordinance bass amplifier and the combination is perfect. I have to assume these little units are keeping my new 2 way speakers from damage. The speakers sound great and were easy to install in the positive speaker wire.

Pros: Small, easy to install, complete with spade lug style ends.

Cons: none

I had speaker distortion when I played bass heavy music. I spoke with a Crutchfield employee and he told me about bass blockers. He told me to go for the 300 hz because of my speaker size. For the money this is a fantastic option to help eliminate speaker distortion. Thanks Crutchfield!

Bass blockers

Written By Pappy, Point Pleasant WV on Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Didn't use as the terminals were not compatible with the wiring harness adapters supplied with the speaker purchase so I don't know if the perform as advertised or not.

Pros: - Don't have any

Cons: - Terminal ends don't work with the wiring harness supplied with the speakers.

Crutchfield response on Monday, March 24, 2014 Sometimes the spade terminals on these Bass Blockers won't fit your speakers. In these cases, you'll need to clip off the spade and attach the proper-sized quick slides. Our tech support team reached out to the customer to help with this issue.

Not Sufficient Blockage for Tweeters

Written By Alex, Clifton, VA on Sunday, February 16, 2014

I'm disappointed with these blockers only because they were recommended for my tweeters but I don't think they cut out enough low frequency.

Pros: Bi directional blockers which is nice.

Cons: Not cutting out enough mids from my tweeters. I guess Crutchfield doesn't carry a blocker that blocks at higher frequencies. Will have to return them.

first off, these are awesome products. i have it on my 3.5" jl coaxials. testing these with sine wave tones, they do not cut off all the frequencies, however, listening to music is another story. they do the job great. highly recommended for anyone with small diameter speakers

Pros: clean mids/highs prevents small speakers from clipping from bass they cannot handle

Cons: sine waves still come through, and cranking near max on music they start to not work as great.

Written By Adam, Nashville, TN on Sunday, December 08, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently installed a stereo in my classic car, but was disappointed to find that if I set the bass level to a good level for the rear 6x9s, the front 6.5s would distort periodically. After the installation of the Bass Blockers (which was very quick and easy), I can set the bass for the rear 6x9s without any of the distorting of the front speakers. Now I can cruise and listen to all of the Motown, blues, and classic rock that I want!

Pros: Work as described. Extremely easy to install. Great price.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Written By Whitt VT, Statesboro, GA on Sunday, November 17, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The blockers look sturdy and super easy to install, I just wish I could've used them. The tweeter connection in a Prius II is apparently hardwired from the connection clip, with no way to use an adaptor or such to attach the blockers. All in all, you can't use them with stock tweeters in a Prius II.

Pros: Sturdy, easy connection

Cons: Doesn't fit every car

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Get's the job done, I have these installed on two 4x6 speakers and it really cleaned up the sound, no bass distortion equals a happy customer, if amplifying your speakers isn't in your plans these should be!

Pros: Cleans up the sound for a huge reduction in distortion

Cons: Terminal connectors aren't compatible with certain speakers therefore a pack of multiple sized terminals are suggested, only adds a few dollars though

Works great

Written By MC, Tetonia, ID on Friday, July 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had never used anything like these before. Figured it was worth a try before deciding whether to spend a bunch of money on an amp or upgraded head unit. Still might do that, but for now my front (new, Polk DB651S) speakers aren't trying to put out bass, making them much clearer. Bass in the 2000 Tundra is a little muddy coming from the rear (same Polk speakers) but I can tell there's bass, which I couldn't before.

Cons: The disconnect terminals that came on the Bass Blockers were 1/4" and on my S10 the GM harness and speakers used 3/16" but it was an east fix just annoying.

Cons: Original connector didn't fit on speakers.

Great except for one thing

Written By SandroD, Upstate, NY on Saturday, December 15, 2012

I used this with a set of Focal Polyglass speakers in a Scion IQ. It was pain to install because the male connector would not fit into the wire harness provided by Crutchfield. It is just a little too big. I remember doing a similar install years ago and i ran into the same problem. I ended up having to splice the wires together. The end result is amazing. It definitely allowed my speakers to shine with its mids and highs. I would have given it 5 stars if i didn't have to alter the wires.

Pros: It works as expected

Cons: Does not fit on the provided wire harness. Alteration is necessary.

Must have for aftermarket systems including subs.

Written By Sergio W, Colorado Springs, CO on Friday, December 14, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Just got these in today and I must say they are amazing! For being a cheap passive crossover solution, these really help those who want more out of their aftermarket speakers complimented with a subwoofer system. I was able to turn up the bass setting higher to send more bass to the sub whilst keeping harmful bass frequencies from my speakers. The 150 hz cut-off is perfect because a good amount of bass the speaker can handle at loud volumes are still being played through the full range speakers. Now I can really turn the volume up without distortion from unproper bass being fed to the full range speakers. The difference is almost unreal. Hard to explain in words, but "Music Heaven" has been reached in my car. :P Highly recommend these for anyone with a subwoofer system in their car, or anyone with aftermarket speakers, or a combination of both.

Pros: Cheap, Makes a world of a better audio difference, Lets full-range speakers handle frequencies they can handle at louder volumes for cleaner, crisper, distortion free(in some cases), rich sound. Easy to install.

Cons: Male slide terminal didnt fit my current female terminal, but not a problem since splicing a wire is very easy.

Pros: Easy Install and they work very well.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Ford Explorer with NAV and Video from the factory so I want to keep my head unit and I'm not in the frame of mind to install an amp. at the moment, so the base blockers worked magic on my front Boston Acoustic 5-1/4 components.

The head unit has limited bass control and it was not filtering out low bass and even the Boston's can only handle so much before sounding like total s*#@. I tried the 300HZ as indicated but it took to much bass out so i landed with the 150HZ. They sound great, clear upper and midrange with to proper amount of lows. Two complaints:

1. The quick connectors are too wide (they don't fit) and you need to modify

2. The base blockers don't have any marking on them so if you get two types don't mix them up as it's hard to tell the difference. Yeah the wire color different but if you forget what was what you need to perform a sound check to figure it out.

Once installed they work fine, but getting them in was a process even though it should be simple. 1st, as others mentioned the terminals don't fit a lot of speakers. In our vehicle we have 3 sets of speakers all different brands and the terminals didn't fit any so all had to be modified.

2nd, the solder joint between the wire and the component can be weak. On 1 of them i was installing both sides popped of as i flexed the wires to install the speaker so I had to take it out and re-solder.

Speaker terminal too large for Boston Acoustics postive speaker terminal. You
have to splice in the terminal that comes with the speakers.

This product is awesome for someone looking to get better highs from your
smaller speakers without having to spend the money for an amp. I have these
installed in my dash and sound bar speakers in my Jeep Wrangler. I didn't
know how they would work at first, but I must say that this has been the BEST
$10 I have spent on sound equipment. They take out the bass to give you
crystal clear results and let the subwoofer do all the heavy hitting with the bass.
I highly recommend these Bass Blockers to anyone that wants to let your radio
push your smaller speakers!!!

Too difficult to setup with the harnes for Honda Acura aftermarket speakers (don't fit)

Simply as advertised!

These are a very effective and affordable passive crossover method. They basically convert your full range speaker to Mid - High range sound output. This prevents smaller speakers from distorting or squashing out when trying to re-create big bass at higher volume.

The only draw back is they are not flexable as far as what cut -off feequency they pass so choose your cut off frequency carefully. If your not certain which is best for your aplication, the general selection guide on the web site is probably your best bet.

great item, suprised that they cut only enough bass to keep the speakers from fuzzing (is that a word). Glad the salesperson advised these.

These bass blockers are probably the best investment Ive made for my audio system. I was very, very suprised when I heard the quality of sound that came from installing this product. It took me a total of 10 minutes to install these Bass Blockers, too! Now all my lows go to my subwoofers and my 6x9's do the rest. These worked so well that im thinking about purchasing another pair for my door speakers.

Solid Product, Noticeable Difference

Written By Pat, Dingmans Ferry, PA on Sunday, June 28, 2009

These bass blockers worked just as all the previous reviews about them said they would. For the extra money with my Kenwood Speakers, it was definitely worth the investment. Installation is easy with these. I was able to turn the volume up a good amount louder without the bass starting to sound bad. These are supposed to help the speakers to last longer also which is another bonus feature about them. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking into buying a set of good speakers.

This is a great product. A small price to pay for great sound. I can now turn the music up much louder than before without any distortion. I recommend this product to anyone looking to improve the overall sound of their system.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed 600Hz blockers on my 3.5" Boston Acoustic dashboard speakers. At low volumes, the 3.5" speakers didn't make any bass anyway so they aren't that noticeable. But at higher volumes, you can notice that all your bass is coming from behind you. The speakers get VERY loud and don't distort when they aren't trying to produce low frequencies. I highly recommend blockers for smaller speaker sizes. You won't have to worry about blowing your speakers when you're driving with your windows down on a highway anymore!

Prolong speaker life

if you're buying tweeters and/or midrange speakers BUY BASS BLOCKERS!
this will ensure speaker performance without minimizing lifespan.
for an extra few bucks, it's worth protecting a $150 investment

Noticable difference

Written By Robert, Manteca, CA on Tuesday, August 19, 2008

I purchased these for my 05 mustang. I had replaced the factory speakers
in the doors and back deck with pioneers. The base was pretty heavy. I
bought two of the 150 mhz base blockers and added them to my door
speakers and wow what a difference. The door speakers are much clearer
now and i can hear the distinct sound difference. I left the rear deck
speakers alone. So with the two 10" subs in the doors plus the back deck
speakers i still get all the clear base i want but now will clearer crisper mids
and high tones from the base blocked door speakers. The difference was
night and day.

Excellent Bass Blockers

Written By David, San Marcos, Tx on Monday, July 28, 2008

I have a reg. cab Silverado with an Alpine 9886, 2 infinity 6.5's in the doors & 2 infinity 4x6's in the panels behind your head. Too much bass was getting to my 4x6's and I was scared to blow my new speakers. Saw these 600Hz, and had to pick them up. They worked perfectly & were easy to install in line with the speakers. Sound is crisp & clear w/out any distortion! Now I can bump my music loud without worying. Definately installing them on the 6.5's ASAP when I install my 12"!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the 600 Hz version when I replaced the oem speakers in my car. I
run a low power system with a basic Kenwood receiver.

When I installed these, I noticed a substantial decrease in the volume of
the front speakers, which I fixed just by balancing the sound more to the
front of the car. The quality of sound did not improve at all, but I left the
set up just for the sake of protecting my new speakers from too much bass.

A short time later I noticed that my front speakers were not making any
sound at all. I found that the bass blocker had fried itself. The connection
basically melted away. Now my speakers work fine and sound much better
just by removing the bass blocker.

Well Worth The Money

Written By Layne, Kansas on Friday, May 30, 2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These bass blockers are well worth the money. After I installed these, my
speakers were a lot louder, and the crisp notes were more noticeable. I
would recommend these to everyone even if they don't have a subwoofer.
Since most 6 1/2 speakers do not produce bass anyways, why not block it
out? If you purchase these bass blockers you will not be disappointed.

After installing the Bass Blockers on my front side door speakers, the bass coming from my rear 6x9s was much more noticeable. In addition the front speakers sound much more clear and crisp without the lows being pushed through them. The Bass Blockers made a big improvement in the quality of the sound coming from my car. This was money well spent!

These will help you reach crystal clear mids and highs with 6.5's

Written By t_quirk, Detroit, MI on Saturday, May 12, 2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Even if you are just powering with a head unit these will make a difference. They filter out low bass, therefore drastically cutting distortion to speakers not meant to carry heavy bass. The bass in my car comes from my rear 6x9's. Mids and highs should come from the front since it's easier for the ear to locate mids and highs. I am now able to fade my system to the front, ensuring mids and highs come through *without* the bass that would normally distort them. A great buy, I highly recommend them!
