Overview

Our take on the XTC 12" Speaker Baffles

Waterproof foam baffles from XTC fit behind speakers to keep them clean and dry. They compress easily to fit the installation, and form a mounting seal that can reduce panel vibration. Use these speaker baffles along with a Dynamat kit when you install your new speakers, and you'll enjoy improved sound and performance.

These baffles will protect your speakers. In many applications we recommend that you cut a hole in the bottom of the baffle, or remove the entire bottom of the baffle, to maintain good bass response while still protecting your speaker from dirt and water damage.

Works exceptional with used with Polk 8" preconstruction brackets

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am building a new house and going to install the Polk RC80i speakers. I ordered the Preconstruction Ceiling Brackets so I could get the speakers positioned where I wanted them and speed the speaker installation. Per the building inspector (and he is a good guy), in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin you need to have something behind the speakers to prevent air infiltration and moisture issues. That is why I ordered the XTC 12" Speaker Baffles. I slit the base of the XTC enclosures and slid the speaker brackets through the slit. The XTC enclosures fit perfectly. The ID of the speaker baffle is just slightly larger than the ID of the speaker bracket. They work together well. I hate to admit it, but the (overpriced) speaker bracket and XTC baffle together are worth the money.

Pros: Works well with the Polk 8" preconstruction bracket.

Cons:

XTC 12" Speaker Baffles

Anonymous from Tulsa, OK on 9/10/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I actually used these behind my recessed ceiling speakers for my home theater system. It works great for keeping the loose insulation from falling in the living room if you have to remove them after they've been installed. I also installed the smaller size baffles in my truck doors and love them. They keep the speakers so clean and sheltered from moisture.

Pros: weight, price

Cons: none

Used for in-ceiling speaker baffles

camnick from Pittsboro,IN on 5/14/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am having a house built, so I wired it for in-ceiling speakers. I cut the speaker holes and glued the baffles on the top of the ceiling drywall around the speaker hole. My builder insulated with spray foam on top of the ceiling and incapsulated the baffles. The baffles worked great for this application.

Why did you buy this?

These come as a two pack. Work great for installing Polk 8" speakers in ceiling with only bottom access. [ wayne  Feb 18, 2016 ]
