About the Boom Mat 6-1/2" Speaker Baffles

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.

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.

Features

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: 6.5"
  • Minimum Cutout: 6" x 5.9375"
  • Maximum Depth: 2.8125"
  • Thickness: 0.25"
  • Flange Size: 6.875" x 6.875"

A
Have used these several times and a portion of the rear lower rim MUST BE CUT OUT to allow for mid bass breathing while still providing the rear sound wave absorption along with water/dirt protection for the top rear of the speaker basket (2" x 6" is what I've used on average for a cutout - works well). They do work if installed as I've described - I've installed 14 sets now in multiple ways and every time, it killed the mid bass and vocal clarity if I didn't use a cutout (size varies).

I know very little about car audio. I hope the purchase is worthwhile. I picked these baffles for three reasons. First, I wanted some type of gasket between the speaker and door panel to reduce vibration. Second, I wanted to protect the speakers. I just purchased a used car and all four of the main speakers were damaged. Third, I have heard of this brand and seen it in stores (not really a well informed decision, but...) [ Mike  Jan 12, 2016 ]
A
These things just make sense: most people wouldn't think of installing a sub woofer without an enclosure - they just don't work right without them. So why not "enclose" your smaller speakers as well? So maybe they are not as 'tight' as a sub box, they will still improve your base response, dampen any rattles you may get from a dash or door mount, and help protect your vulnerable backside - of your speaker, of course.

Bought them before. Need them to protect the front door speakers from moisture in a 2012 Accord. If they affect your mid range response you can always cut the bottoms of them out to allow air flow while protecting them from water that falls from above. Not sure if this is a review or not.

While I have clearance for a deeper baffle I prefer to have them fit closely. I have used other Boom Mat products for sound deadening in my Jeep and am impressed with their quality and effectiveness. [ Edward  Nov 26, 2017 ]

I chose this because I'm spending good money on door speakers and i want to protect them from the weather, dust and bugs that may affect the speaker. Also good for bass insulation. [ Anthony  Oct 17, 2017 ]
A
perfect fit for my speakers, and will protect them from dust, dirt, water, etc. [ Kyle  Sep 28, 2017 ]

Ziggy recommended due to slim depth for the doors and said the speakers will still fit in them. [ Jed  Sep 07, 2017 ]
A
These are sized to the speakers I am using and should protect the speakers from any moisture that gets in the vehicle doors. [ David  Sep 05, 2017 ]

To provide a rain barrier to keep speakers dry. Note that I do cutout a hold at the back bottom corner to retain the infinite baffle effect of the inside door frame. [ Bill  Jul 22, 2017 ]

I find the Boom Mat speaker baffles really help with bass reproduction when speakers are mounted in doors. The door cavity is entirely too much free air space for a 6.5" speaker. [ Thomas  Jul 11, 2017 ]
A
Recommended by Crutchfield. Used similar brand before and it makes sense to reduce vibration and protect the speaker from potential moisture. Needed slim for shallow door install. [ Alex  Jun 26, 2017 ]

Because my speakers sound like crap [ Richard  Feb 28, 2017 ]

Reviews say they protect speakers from weather, that might leak into doors. Cost was reasonable so I went with the added protection. [ Auther  Jan 18, 2017 ]

2007 Honda Civic Factory Front Speakers are inoperative. A little research online led me to a common issue with these vehicles. Water from rain and carwashes runs down the window, inside the door and drips on the speakers. The speakers fail over time. Zero sound coming from the front. I chose these baffles to protect the replacement speakers I ordered. I expect them to attenuate some of the bass response, but want a lasting fix. May cut out the bottom to help with sound. [ TIMOTHY  Jan 10, 2017 ]

Wanted to protect my speakers from the elements. The car is older and I wanted to make sure moisture in the door wouldn't be a problem in the future. [ Kevin  Nov 28, 2016 ]
A
bought these as extra security for possible water intrusion in my Sierra doors [ John  Nov 25, 2016 ]
A
Because the doors are exposed to moisture and dirt. The 2-1/2 depth baffles were chosen because they will not hit the window regulator. [ Tony  Nov 20, 2016 ]

The 6.5" Alpine speakers I originally installed in my vehicle in 1995 have deteriorated and the woofer cones are disintegrating. I think this is partly due to the 1967 automobile door design, which basically allows water to flow down inside the door, directly onto my speakers. My hope is that these baffles will prevent this water damage. [ Wayne  Nov 16, 2016 ]
A
Protect speaker, hopefully reduce vibrations on door panel. [ Michael  Nov 04, 2016 ]
A
these help make a good seal around the speaker. keeping moisture and dirt out along with providing a little bit of sound deadening. [ MIKE  Oct 09, 2016 ]
A
The entire system is based on the recommendation of Jane. I felt I could trust her judgement and did so. Because I may replace the truck soon she did not try to sell me up and gave me what I needed. I even offered her a job in CA!! [ David  Oct 06, 2016 ]

I chose this product due to the age of my vehicle and the proximity of the speaker to the window glass. I feel that protecting the speaker from additional moisture is important even when the speakers are rated for marine applications. To me that does not include the wiring segments and are thus prone to corrosion. [ Joshua  May 31, 2016 ]

Because I want to obviously protect my speakers from weather that may happen from cracks in the frame or whatever. The number 1 reason though theses baffles will help the speakers produce way more sound and clarity without working to hard. [ SHANE  Apr 01, 2016 ]

I read good things about the mats and I wanted to increase bass response in the doors without installing dynomat. [ Elvis  Mar 26, 2016 ]

These are to protect new door mounted speakers in a 1975 Chevy Truck. The interior of the doors are exposed to outside moisture and although the speaker cones are made of polypropylene, these baffles will add another layer of protection from the elements. [ MICHAEL  Mar 13, 2016 ]

It's important to create an airtight space for your speakers to sound the way they were engineered to. By placing these baffles behind your speakers you are enabling them to perform to their highest specifications. [ James  Dec 28, 2015 ]

Wanted to get better sound quality and after reading the reviews I knew it would be a good choice. Was going to install Dynamat behind the speakers but found these instead. Were recommended so anything is better than nothing! [ Joshua  Dec 17, 2015 ]

considering using these for 6.5" ceiling speakers for low level background music. Thoughts?

A
These baffles will help a LITTLE with sound but more importantly they will keep debris out of the spider and motor mechanism of the speaker for longer use.
[ RUDY  Aug 20, 2017 ]
A
I used this product when I installed new speakers in my old truck and it seemed to make a noticeable difference. Can't really address how they might affect ceiling speakers, but I was satisfied with them in my application.

Q
I've read differing opinions on if you should cut a hole in the bottom of these baffles or not. Are there applications where I truly should or should not cut a hole?
[ Todd  Mar 26, 2015 ]
4 answers
A
I would think you need to cut a hole in it either way, cause you have to get the wires through. I just cut about an 1" slit in the bottom of mines.
[ Victor  Mar 28, 2015 ]
A
Its probably up to your tastes. I initially cut the bottoms out and installed them. I found the sound muffled and the volume reduced too much. I then cut out part of the sides and the sound improved so I left them in.
[ MIKE  Mar 28, 2015 ]
A
As I recall (been a few years), I poked a hole through just to feed wires. What I can tell you is that these definitely improve sound and amazingly keep sound focused within the cabin as opposed to making the door pocket resonate and buzz. I always think people next to me are annoyed by the loud music, but when I get out and close the door, it's not loud outside at all. (I do have insulation panels)
[ GEORGE  Mar 27, 2015 ]
A
Do you want to use the door cavity as the "cabinet" for your speaker or a little tiny cover? The cover without a hole will turn a very small volume into a sealed speaker cabinet, which will limit bass response.probably not the best choice.
