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.

Fits as expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit very well in factory door speaker holes.

Pros: Fit great, tighten the sound.

Cons: You have to cut your own slit to connect the wires. Not really an issue, but creates a chance that you may make the hole too big.

waste of money

Honestly these slightly changed the sound and made it better but with the speakers I ordered they make the doors rattle once they are attached to the door with the speakers.

Pros: Wasteful

Cons: Cheap

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect for stopping that metal echo off ur door panel. For the money, it makes the speakers you buy sound like u paid a lot more. They also added a better sounding bass to my 6.5" In the doors. wish there where speaker terminals on them so they could be perfectly sealed

Pros: Inexpensive huge gain for budget speakers

Cons: Have to poke small hole for speaker wire then seal it if you're in to that.

this stuff is a need for a work truck, my window does not hold off the water out right so sometimes i leaks a little and when i went to change my factory speakers i noticed the speakers had a damp feel to them, so it was a must to have to protect the new speakers. great buy

Pros: it was free with the purchase of the 4x6 speakers, and protects your speakers.

Cons: none

2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

They seem to improve the sound from the Polk Audio db461s in the c-pillars in my 2013 Silverado and they eliminate the vibration I was getting without them. I cut out the bottoms to clear the leads and improve the bass a bit (you don't get much of that from 4x6 speakers.) It was easy to trim them to fit with a utility knife.

Pros: They do what they're supposed to do.

Cons: None so far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers to replace the worn out ones in my '06 pickup. The sound is crisp and clear and volume is way more than I'll ever need. For 4x6 speakers the frequency range is excellent, even for my 60 year old ears

Pros: frequency response, volume range, solid build (not cheap cardboard like the OEM ones but excellent materials)

Cons: none

Written by: Frank from Colorado on May 21, 2014

Nice way to direct more sound out of a big door. Also very good for water-proofing the speakers on a truck that is off road occasionally.

Pros: Easy install - in rear door of GMC pickup. Great to weather / dust proof the speakers - especially in a 4x4 pickup. Projects sound out of the door better.

Cons: none

Easy install.

Easy install, not sure if they make any difference in the sound as I didn't test my speakers without them. I do enjoy the peace of mind of knowing my speakers are better protected though.

Pros: Easy install, inexpensive.

Cons: They weren't free.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Helped decrease the vibrations that could have been caused by the bass and the door. Is a good insulator for vibration and I think adds to the depth of bass heard from the relatively small speaker itself. It does not dissipate through the door frame.

Pros: Easy to install and was an exact fit to the speaker.

Cons:

Written by: MCTech from Texas on January 12, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are such a simple idea, but a really great one. The speaker locations inside my Chevy truck's doors leak dirt and dust and even water sometimes. Therefore, these baffles should help the speakers stay in good shape longer. I think they improve the sound quality as well.

Pros: Enhance sound, protect speakers. Cheap protection for the speakers.

Cons: None.

Nice finishing touch to my sound!

I wasn't sure about these when I purchased but now I am a believer. Installed one speaker with and one without and I can't really say there was much of a bass difference as much as there was a fullness in sound. Easy to work with and was well worth the cash to enhance the system

Pros: Easy to work with

Written by: bigKsoda from Russell Springs, KY on September 30, 2013

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were a recommended addition from Crutchfield when replacing the speakers in our 2003 Silverado extended cab. Do like the idea that moisture shouldn't be able to get to the back side of the speakers; not 100% sold that they help with bass response. Course 4x6 speakers, to me seem to be more like an oversized tweeter.

Pros: Keeps moisture from getting to the back side of speakers. Cheap price to pay to extend the life of replacement speakers.

Cons: None.

The 4x6 speakers I put in behind the seats in my Chevy Silverado needed speaker baffles to sound their best. I purchased them from Crutchfield at the same time with my new speakers. The speaker and baffle combo sounds fantastic. The best bang for my buck was purchasing them together.(speaker & baffle)

Pros: Improves sound quality and protects back of speaker.Also great price.

Warmer sound in my 88 Trans Am

Written by: CLL1 from Douglasville GA on September 9, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I am happy! I have used these baffles in varying sizes over the years with good results. I put a new set of Polk's in my 88 Trans Am I've had since new. The new speakers were much clearer than the stockers, but I found them a bit bright and tinny for my liking. I installed these baffles all the way around and I am pleased with the results. Its not a radical difference, but they produce a richer sound I like much better. These need to be trimmed for a good fit, and ported (a small hole will do) so the speaker can breath and move as it needs to. Great product for not a lot of money that gives a speaker that "little extra" it needs.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to trim for a good fit.

Cons: Can be a tight squeeze to fit in some applications

You Have To Cut A Vent Hole In These

Written by: snow4brains from Bay City, MI on June 11, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I should have read the reviews BEFORE installing these. Like a lot of other people I installed them with just a slit to feed the wires through. BIG mistake, the speakers sounded terrible. The cone couldn't move at all, but the back of the baffle was vibrating back and forth like mad. After cutting a large hole in the bottom of the baffle, my new speakers sound fantastic. I cut a square hole about 2"x3" Shame on XTC and Crutchfield for not mentioning this.

Written by: Anonymous from TX on April 20, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

2006 Chevy Silverado extended cab - used these based on recomendation of
crutchfield tech guy on the rear extended cab doors. They worked, just had to
trim the edges down a bit and smash them in the door (there just a tad to deep
to fit with out squishing them). They functioned just fine with the speakers
installed though and no strange noises or rattling, but could have installed the
speakers without them with no issues, just used them because I already
bought them.

I installed these baffles in my 05 silverado ext. cab front and rear when I installed new

made a slight difference in sound quality, but my factory speakers were really dirty when
i pulled them out so these should protect the new speakers.

2 questions already asked

might be a good idea, as mine are in an 04 silverado king cab, and at full volume they will vibrate a little on the doors!, just haven't had the time to pull mine back out and do it, but it does make the sound better than just being in the door! [ JEFF  Mar 26, 2015 ]
The foam they are made of doesn't cause any unnecessary noises on mine, and have decent bass for a truck Baffle. [ KEVIN  Mar 26, 2015 ]
I didn't try that but by themselves they sound awesome and made a big difference. [ CRAIG  Mar 26, 2015 ]
