Overview

Our take on the Bass Blockers

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.

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.

A must have for 3.5" front 2-way speakers

A must have for 3.5" front 2-way speakers

Pros: Easy to install... Makes a huge difference at high volume.

Cons:

a MUST HAVE.

Written by: Kyle from corona, CA on March 14, 2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are a must have to protect your smaller, dash speakers. I used these on the Polk DB351s in my dash. After first installing the speakers without them, I could easily hear the speakers overworking to produce bass, and had to turn them down to prevent damage. After installation of these blockers, I could safely turn up the volume and get excellent midrange and highs out of the speakers. Incredibly easy to install. One for each speaker. Just connect them on your POSTIVE speaker wire, and onto the POSITIVE terminal on your speaker. Done.

Pros: Works well. Noticed an immediate difference in the speaker's performance. Lost the low bass, and allowed the speakers to produce louder, clearer mids and highs.

Cons: None. Worked exactly as needed.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased these so the deepest bass would not blow out my new Polk DXi691 6x9 speakers. I love that they have wires attached. The only problem is that the connectors do not fit the speakers. This is why I gave them only 4 stars. They should come with the right size for new speakers. Crutchfield was out of the right sized connectors so I had to purchase them locally. it was easy to cut them and crimp the new connectors on.

Pros: flexible wires so easy to crimp on connectors. they hold out the deep bass to protect the speakers

Cons: Do not come with the right sized connectors already attached.

A must-have accessory

Written by: Johnny G. from New Jersey on December 6, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Protect your investment! These bass blockers stop just enough lows that you can crank your speakers up higher without all the garble and distortion and risk of cone damage from too much bass.

Pros: Easy to install and small enough to hide in between the factory reverse wire harness and speaker terminal at the speaker locations. Comes with blade ends already installed!

Cons: Had to narrow male blade end with cutters slightly to fit existing wiring. No big deal

Added much clarity to my Kicker 41KSC354

Written by: Anonymous from Georgia on 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 from New York on September 15, 2015

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.

Pros:

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

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

Cons: None

600 HZ Bass blockers

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.

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.

Do They? I Don't Know Yet.

Written by: ChuckL from Alexandria, KY on 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.

Pros: Small size Comes with ends that direct fit certain connectors Work perfectly

Cons: None at all

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 from Mystic, CT on 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.

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.

Pros:

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.

600hz bass blockers

Written by: F-Eight from Lancaster, CA on May 3, 2014

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 from Sioux Falls SD on April 6, 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!

Written by: Pappy from Point Pleasant WV on 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 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 from Clifton, VA on 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 from Nashville, TN on December 8, 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 from Statesboro, GA on 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

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

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: Original connector didn't fit on speakers.

Great except for one thing

Written by: SandroD from Upstate, NY on 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 from Colorado Springs, CO on 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.

My Pioneer Deck didn't have the High Pass Filter feature, so I bought 2 pairs of these bad boys. They eliminated the low frequency on the front and rear speakers which is exactly what I wanted. I let my Sub take care of the Low Frequencies while the main speakers bring out the Mids and Highs with no distortion. Sounds really clean now.

Pros: Easy Install and they work very well.

Cons: None.

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.

These definitely do their job and work as described, however, I didnt care for them. I used them on Infinity Kappa series 682.9cf 6x8's and ended up taking them off after 2 days. So even though they work, I cant give them 5 stars because I didnt like the result. I felt the 300hz cutoff was too high for those particular 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!!!

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.

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.

Written by: Pat from Dingmans Ferry, PA on 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.

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!

Noticable difference

Written by: Robert from Manteca, CA on 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.

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.

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.

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!

Incredible Difference!

Written by: jrhythm03 from Stow, OH on December 13, 2006

I'm currently using two pairs of these: 150's and 600's. At first I was skeptical on actually needing these. Putting them in made all the difference. I've been installing systems for several years now as a hobbyist, and these blockers push the cleanest, most efficient sound I've ever heard through my after-market speakers. If you have a small car and subs in the trunk... GET THESE. You'll finally have something to rival the rattle. It's completely worth it to tack these on when you're buying replacements. I put these in after already having installed my speakers, so it was a bit of a pain to get to everything again, but it was definitely worth it. No question. Just be sure your head unit isn't trying to push more than 50w/ch.

I have a truck (86 F150) with a high power (50x4) head unit, 2 6.5 door speaker and a custom 2x10 enclosure with it's own amp that just didn't sound right. The door speakers kept breaking up. I added these 150hz bass blockers and it totally transformed the sound. If you're using your head unit to drive speakers and you have a sub I would get these in an instant. It will really clean up your sound. Only complaint is that I would want them at about 100hz not 150hz. My Subs aren't good for much over 130hz so there's a tiny hole, but not real bad.

Product Research

Features

Overview: Bass Blockers stop speaker distortion caused by excessive bass relative to a speaker's bass output capability. They are especially useful with small diameter speakers and tweeters. Bass Blockers are typically installed right before the positive speaker input terminal, in-line with the positive speaker lead.

Easy Installation: To install a Bass Blocker, slip the female connector of the bass blocker onto the positive speaker terminal, and plug the male connector into the speaker lead. If you don't want to use the terminals, cut them off, cut the speaker lead at a convenient location close to the speaker, then splice the Bass Blocker into the positive speaker lead and insulate the connections. Bass blockers are not directional, so the orientation of the Bass Blockers on the positive speaker leads is not important.

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.

Slope: The roll off rate is 6dB/octave, and the frequency each bass blocker is rated for (i.e. 150, 300, 600, 800Hz, etc.) is the point where response has been lowered by 3dB.

Model 2 ohms 4 ohms 8 ohms Wire Color
127BB150A2 300Hz 150Hz 75Hz Brown

Thought it made good sense to block lower frequencies from 3.5" speakers I was replacing in the dash. [ Lee  Apr 22, 2016 ]
These are to be installed inline with 3-1/2" two-way speakers. The 300Hz threshold on these blockers will keep the frequencies at the speakers well above their 90Hz floor and out of their low-end roll-off curve. This all means the speakers should be free of any mechanical distortion at any sane power setting. [ KEITH  Apr 20, 2016 ]
It is an excellent way to keep your smaller speakers from trying to reproduce bass that they are not designed for. [ authur  Apr 11, 2016 ]

To install satellite speakers onto a vintage receiver's full range speaker output. The speaker manufacturer recommended 150hz @ 8 ohms. [ Franklin  Jan 19, 2016 ]
I used Chat to get a few technical answers and discuss options with a Crutchfield expert. He helped me narrow down the speakers I chose and then suggested I consider Base Blockers for the front speakers to help prevent distortion. As they were only $10 it was a no brainer. The tech had recommended 300Hz for my particular speaker even though the site said 600 hz for that size speaker in general. He said my speaker could handle the lower rating so 300 would serve me well. Thanks Crutchfield! [ David  Jan 06, 2016 ]

These coils will "cut-off" the lower frequencies, because 4 X 6 speakers do not put out a lot of bass. I think that these Bass Blockers, at this frequency will prolong the life of the speakers too. [ James  Feb 28, 2016 ]

Best range of options and clear descriptions of how these Bass Blockers work in different setups. Using these to dampen the bass on 3.5" Kickers going in the upper dash paired with 6x9 Kickers in the front doors (Kicker 5,25" in the rear). [ Christopher  Jan 15, 2016 ]

Yes, however, they've been reviewed to have great low frequency response. Even though they should be large enough to perform well with a 150 Hz cap, I'd go with the 300 Hz instead. Let the subs take care of the bass. [ Nicholas  Apr 07, 2016 ]

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: The components should be using a crossover which will eliminate the highs from the tweeters. We don't carry any bass blockers for the 6x9's. Usually the frequency range on that size speaker can accomodate plenty of bass and does not need a blocker. So you do not need bass blockers for either location. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

the 800s will do fine but if you have a hi pass crossover built in your amp or radio use it to as well [ THEODORE  Jun 28, 2014 ]
The 800hz blockers will work fine. I don't know about the Kickers, but check before you buy the blockers because some smaller diameter speakers come with blockers already installed at the factory so buying another set isn't required. [ JOHN  Jun 23, 2014 ]
I used the 800hz and they sound good but honestly, if you're using an aftermarket head unit then you can probably get away with the 600. Just a thought. [ OCTAVIO  Jun 23, 2014 ]
They will work fine, just be sure that they don't already come with bass blockers (some speakers do). Also, if you're using a crossover network, bass blockers aren't necessary, because the crossover handles that chore. [ JOHN  Apr 19, 2014 ]

I used them on my tweeters and they work well. I have no amps or anything simply the head unit and I get a great sound. [ JOEL  Dec 30, 2013 ]
Bass blockers are used to prevent the lowest frequencies from going thru tweeters. Because tweeters reproduce the high-end sounds in the frequency spectrum, trying to get them to reproduce bass level sounds could damage them and the sound will be distorted. I think you are confusing the equalization curves in your deck with a cross over network which must be installed in the speaker line from a separate amp. (You don;t say whether you're using a separate amp or not). Frequencies above 800hz are still considered "mids" so the bass blockers won;t stop the tweeters from receiving those frequencies but they will prevent distortion and damage to the tweeters. If you are using component speakers (woofers, mid range and tweeters and again, you didn't say), they should have a cross over network installed which should correctly separate the frequencies to match the capabilities of that particular brand of speaker so the bass blockers wouldn't be necessary. [ JOHN  Dec 22, 2013 ]
Get the highest number... [ RANDY  Dec 22, 2013 ]
I'm running them on the 3.5 inch polk audio speakes but I have 6x9 in my doors so I also wanted to block out any lows. I was also trying to limit the distortion . [ MARK L  Dec 22, 2013 ]
It was the best ting I did for my tweeds. They are ear piercing highs now. The cross over on my punch amps was still letting some mids through. For the price it is worth it. [ RANDY  Dec 22, 2013 ]
I picked up a set of polk audio silk dome tweeters to put in my dash, and i used these bass blockers in the wiring. They've been in for around 4 mnths, and seem to be doing tye job pretty well. Hope that helps. [ JOSHUA  Dec 21, 2013 ]
