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.

Either I couldn't figure out how to install them or the wrong size shipped?

Cons: When inserted into the door, the baffles are too deep and crushed back inward. Couldn't get speaker and baffle to fit so just threw out the baffles. Still sounds good.

Work ok.... could be a little thicker or include additional sound insulating material to be more effective.

Pros: Fit great

Cons: to thin to really block any measurable sound

Do not use baffles

Written By Matt, Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, January 11, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The quality is great, but using baffles really hindered the performance of the woofer. I cut the baffle to protect the bottom of the speaker in case of water splash.

Pros: High quality

Cons: they made the speaker sound bad.

The baffles are easy to install and they work.

worth the money

Written By Rory, NC on Monday, October 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As for any gains in sound quality, I cannot attest to any. I was told they act as an enclosure and will make the bass "hit harder." I dont know about that, But I didnt realize how much water and moisture our speakers see. I had to take the door panel back off and it had rained a day or so earlier. There was water all over the outside of the baffles. I never realized speakers get wet. And one of the other reasons I went ahead and got these is that I was concerned that the aftermarket speakers would have more bass and may introduce vibrations. No vibrations so far! So if you get them , make sure the hole you cut for the speakerwire is oriented on the lowest point so if any moisture collects, it can drain, and pay attention to where your window will roll down because my window kept pulling the speaker wires off when i would roll it down.

Pros: keeps vibrations away, prevents moisture from reaching the speaker

Cons: none that i know of

does what there designed to. enhancement to sound (slight). helps to create a better seal with door, which is great.

Pros: helps enhance sound and shielding from weather also a better seal with door

Cons: could be a little more firm, also pre cut ports so you don't have to cut the baffle's your self leaving the chance that you cut improperly and have to purchase an other set of baffles

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These looked like they would work. But I was disappointed when I tried to fit them in place. They are way too big around and too tall. I tried to modify them to work. That didn't work very well either. So I threw them away and decided the speakers will be fine without them.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Didn't fit.

These look like a nice product but are very deep. To deep for the doors I wanted to use them in. But I do not hold that against the product. It was my fault for not getting a proper measurement before I purchased them. If you have the space for them I'm sure they'll work great. But measure first!

XTC 6-3/4" Speaker Baffles

Written By Duane, Raleigh, NC on Sunday, January 04, 2009

A must for most door speaker installs! These work great for 4" and smaller speakers as-is. For 5.25" and larger the internal volume of the baffle is too small for lower notes, and since it is not rigid it will wreak havoc on the speaker. To remedy this, cut a 2" or larger hole on the downward-facing side of the baffle (when installed). For door speakers, do not cut out the back. By only cutting on the downward-facing side (door speakers, usually) you will maintain protection from water and still benefit from the gasket seal it creates at the mounting rim of the speaker. Assuming the mounting surface does not have other holes close to the speaker (within a foot or so) this will greatly improve speaker performance.

Get the bigger size!

Written By Ben, Great Falls, MT on Friday, July 07, 2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I agree with the previous review for the most part, and let me explain why: This smaller size (with less space between the back of the speaker and back of the baflle) can have some unwanted effects depending on the speaker enclosed. In my case, the cone movement of the speaker would cause the baffle to suck in and rattle against the back of the speaker. I ended up having to cut out the back of the baffle to fix this problem. On a positive note, the general theory behind these seems sound enough. They are made decently enough and would provide adequate protection for speakers (especially those mounted in doors). The seal around the speaker is also pretty good considering the vacuum that was created in my case (resulting in the unfortunate rattle). I've seen first hand what can happen to an unprotected speaker in a car door. For my sound setup in a previous car, one of my speakers eventually sounded distorted so I pulled off the door panel to take a look. Sure enough corrosion had built up where the wire connected to the speaker. After a thorough cleaning, the speaker sounded fine again. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend the regular size baffle and not the slim version to avoid the issues I've had.

good question ideally you want the speaker to have enough breathing air. you probably would want to experiment. cut enough so that air can move freely, plug it in listen if it sounds muffled cut a little more til your happy with the sound. for me I first cut the back in 1/2, then the under portion of the baffle. my main concern was weather protection of my speakers. hope that helps you a bit [ STEVE  Jan 21, 2015 ]
I cut them I just big enough to fit the connector thru. I hope this helps [ CHRIS  Jan 21, 2015 ]
