Our take on the XTC 4"x6" Speaker Baffles

by Charlie Pastorfield

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.

Features

Product Overview: These acoustic baffles are designed to be placed behind car speakers to protect the speaker from moisture and dirt which can damage speaker components. Along with providing a sealed chamber, they also form a mounting seal between the speaker and the mounting surface to eliminate panel to frame resonance. Baffles will improve door acoustics by reducing road noise and vibrations transferred to the back of the speaker cone. The baffles are pliable and can be compressed to fit most applications.

Dimensions:

  • Speaker Size: 4x6"
  • Minimum Cutout: 4-1/8" x 6-1/4"
  • Maximum Depth: 2"
  • Thickness: 1/4"
  • Flange Size: 6" x 8"

4"x6" Speaker Baffles

Written By Frank, Colorado on Wednesday, May 21, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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, 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.

Improves quality

Written By Raj, Houston, TX on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
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.

Great Idea

Written By MCTech, Texas on Sunday, 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.

I liked the fact that when I was ordering, it was suggested to purchase these. During installation, it seemed to fit the speaker perfect, and isolates as well as cushions the mounting location.
Pros:
Simple design, can't mess them up.

Excellent Speaker Baffles

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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
Cons:
none

XTC 4"x6" Speaker Baffles

Written By bigKsoda, Russell Springs, KY on Monday, September 30, 2013
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.

4x6 Baffles

Written By RoyC, Pittsburgh Pa on Wednesday, July 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.
Cons:
None

Warmer sound in my 88 Trans Am

Written By CLL1, Douglasville GA on Sunday, September 09, 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, Bay City, MI on Saturday, 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.

XTC 4"x6" Speaker Baffles

Written By Anonymous, TX on Wednesday, 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.

Good Product, Will Protect Speakers

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I installed these baffles in my 05 silverado ext. cab front and rear when I installed new
speakers. They fit pretty good, I played the speakers with and without the baffles. They
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.

i bought speakers for my son, you dont need them, unless you are doing sound deadening, so they are useless for you if you install them inside a vehicle. if you were using them for a boat, or jeep, they would also be useful because they do keep the water out
