Boom Mat baffles protect your car's new speakers from moisture and dirt. Mounted behind the speaker, the baffle forms a mounting seal that also improves sound clarity by reducing panel vibration that could transfer to the speaker.

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.

5 1/4 Baffles

Written By AndyQ, Issaquah, WA on Monday, July 27, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product was as described and worked well in my installation location. Sound improved as well as being protected from the elements. I accidentally ordered two pairs thinking they were sold individually as the description isn't clear. So, there you go, they come in pairs.

Pros: Cheap As Described Come in Pairs

Cons: Description isn't clear they come in pairs

They serve the purpose

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Jeep TJ with a sound bar. I bought the boom mats to stop my dome light cover from rattling. They worked great, and super easy to install. The speakers are new also, so I can't compare the current sound to how it was without the boom mats. It sounds 10x better than the old speakers.

Pros: Super easy to install Stopped rattle of other vehicle parts

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect fit in the doors of a '93 Corolla. Keeps the crap off and doesn't affect the sound at all, maybe better. I also used the poor man's sound deadner... spray-on bed liner. 3 coats does the trick!

Pros: Works like it's suppose to.

Cons: NONE

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The baffles were an extremely tight fit in a Grand Cherokee door. We did test the speaker sound without a permanent installation. Frankly the speaker sounded better without the baffle. Would not recommend the product.

1997 Honda Accord - not needed

Written By Cheesehead, Pago Pago, American Samoa on Monday, April 28, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With Crutchfield's extensive fit database, I am surprised they sold them to me for my application. 1997 Honda Accord has factory baffles that are required to mount speakers. (Factory baffles provide spacing for magnet to window clearance inside door.)

Cons: Unusable on 1997 Honda Accord front door application.

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles

Written By Will, Baltimore, MD on Monday, March 03, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. I used these for installation of some speakers for the dash of my Jeep Wrangler. A little ingenuity got them installed and they help the speaker to sound great as well as keeping debris from entering into the back of the speaker.

Pros: good idea for keeping out debris and assisting the speaker in realizing its full potential

Boom Mat

Written By Anonymous, Columbia, SC on Tuesday, September 17, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in the rear speakers on roof of a 2001 jeep cherokee. They were a little too deep so I cut out the back of the baffles and used them for framing the installation and eliminating rattles.

Pros: Thick material - maybe too thick

Cons: muffled sound, check your depth

Easy install

Use is pretty self explanatory. Seemed to fit pretty decent with mounting brackets.

Reduce "boomy sound"

Written By Dave_in_Rio_Rancho, Rio Rancho, New Mexico on Saturday, November 29, 2008

The baffles do what they are supposed to do - isolate the speakers. Contrary to what is said in the description, the purpose of these baffles is to tighten up the lower midrange by "reducing the size of the enclosure". That is why you use enclosures for trunked mounted speakers so they won't sound "boomy."

Hands-on research

What's in the box?

  • Two acoustic foam baffles for 5.25" speakers

Product Research


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.


  • Speaker Size: 5.25"
  • Minimum Cutout: 6.3125" x 5.75"
  • Maximum Depth: 4.1875"
  • Thickness: 0.25"
  • Flange Size: 6.5" x 6.6875"
