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. Call one of our Advisors if you have questions — they'll be happy to share their expertise with you.

Average Customer Review(s):
Really enhanced the sound in the front speakers.
Pros: Easy to trim excess for installation. No problem making holes for mounting.
Cons: None for me.
These work as advertised. They were quite a bit thicker than I expected, but that just means that they are better quality than I expected as well.
Good protection for speakers
Purchased these for a custom stereo install. Have nit installed this pair yet but have used these in the past. Easy to install and offer protection for your speakers. Best for doors as for water protection. using these in dash as there is no room for anything else to baffle 3.5" speakers.
Pros: Cost ease of use speaker protection
Cons: None so far
I bought these inexpensive baffles with the intention of using them for a rear panel mount install of an older set of Infinity 32cf speakers into a VW Cabriolet. When I ordered, I waffled back and forth between regular and slimline depth, knowing the larger magnet assembly may be a tough fit. Bottom line is- the slimline does not clear the magnet. I would return them, but for $7, I would rather not hassle Crutchfield. (I know they would make it right, but since the margin on these is so slim- I'll pass.) Rating based on product quality.
Pros: Non resonant, water-resistant baffle. High density foam appears durable enough for long term
Cons: Slim line baffle does not fit 3.5" Infinity Kappa.
Simple molded foam, flexible baffle.
Pros: Seals the rear of the speaker, flexible and waterproof.
Cons: Wish it had an adhesive mounting surface. Also the circumferance should be a little larger as there is no room for the speaker terminals.
So far, there is an improvement in sound quality. It does what it's suppose to do. That is to damping reverberation in the sheet metal. It also prevents sound from moving to unwanted areas and reduces road noise and vibrations that are transferred to the back of the speaker cone.
Pros: An improvement in speaker performance.
Cons: Little or no information on what it actually does and how best to use them.
Easy to fit and install. Perfect for my custom mounted center speakers in my dash
Pros: protects the speaker while fitting nice and snug
Cons: could be a tad too deep for shallow mounting spots
My dashboard speakers were vibrating or were causing vibration in my dash. When I installed new dash speakers I added these baffles. I don't know if it was the new speakers or the baffles, but the problem is gone.
