About the Boom Mat 6"x9" 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.

Works for what it's supposed to and provides nice insulation for the speakers, but foam doesn't seem to be that great for quality, and required quite a bit of trimming to install.

Pros: Seems to work well after install

Cons: Lower quality foam Tricky to fit into door panels

Great product. These took the shrill out of my speakers and gave them a much warmer tone. No longer do I have to have my treble and mid levels turned way down. Super easy to install and should be bought with all new speakers imho

Pros: Warmer speaker tones. Top end no longer hurts my ears. Used with Kixker KS speakers a great buy in themselfs

Cons: None

Hard to say if these really do much for you. I have a Ram megacab; I thought there'd be plenty of room for these in my front doors. However the gears from my window assembly promptly tore one of mine and after a month it's causing a squeak while putting my window all the way down. Not necessarily the products issue, just something to consider before purchasing.

Not compatible with 2018 Crosstrek

Brian from Santa Fe, NM on 2/12/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

While these may or may not help with sound quality, they actually added too much bulk to the install on my '18 Crosstrek preventing 2 of the door clips from clicking into place. It was really a matter of millimeters that prevented these from working and I've notified Crutchfield so hopefully they won't sell them for '18 Crosstreks anymore.

Pros:

Cons: not for 2018 Crosstrek

WILL NOT work with Jeep Patriot or Compass

Dan from Culver City, Ca on 11/20/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Ok, so I said that I was going to leave a review of these Boom Mat speaker baffles once I got them and installed them. I did have very high hopes and really thought I was going to be leaving a great 5 star review. Not the case. To start, although Crutchfield and the rep were great, these were never suggested to me when I purchased my JBL speakers that I still love. After having my new speakers for a few weeks, I'm feeling that I needed something to "tighten up" the sound. In other words, I feel too much of my sound is being lost in the door cavity of my Jeep. After doing a lot of research on the baffles and reading many love/hate reviews, I decided to go ahead and order them. For me and what I was trying to do, it seemed like the right thing. Got them yesterday and went to install them last night. Not good! First, the baffles just seemed way too big and they have a lot of extra material around the edges. Before I could even begin to try and install them, I had to trim the edges and thus never able to actually "return" them. In fact, there is NO WAY to even try them without cutting in some way, thus a return policy is useless on baffles. However, my biggest disappointment came in the fact that my Jeep opening is designed where there is no way for these baffles to fit in. Why doesn't Crutchfield know this? So now more cutting is required, but still no way to fit them in. Bottom line? Although I still feel they would have helped my situation, I will never know. UPDATED 11/22/17: I did leave another review on here the other day, but didn't put something VERY important in the review. Although I think these baffles would be a great thing to do to clean up your sound, just be 100% they will work on your specific vehicle! WARNING: If you have a 2007 through 2017 Jeep Patriot or 2007 to 2016 Jeep Compass, DO NOT order any baffles for your 6x9 door speakers!! There is no way to install them unless you totally cut them up to the point where they will not help at all. I decided to do this second review because I really wish someone else (with a similar Jeep) would have posted this before I wasted my money. I'm not blaming Crutchfield. It's my fault/responsibility, but I wish they would have known the baffles would not work.

Pros: none

Cons: Bad design, no way for me to know they would not work in my Jeep, very expensive for what they are, and no way to know if they will work till you begin to "cut them to fit" and now they are non-returnable. UPDATED 11/22/17: Just plain will not work in my Jeep.

Crutchfield response on 11/22/2017
Once we saw this review, our Customer Support team reached out to Dan to issue a refund. We do not recommend speaker baffles for this vehicle.

Crutchfield customer from Buena Vista, CO on 10/9/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

easy to use. Probably better than infinite baffle of trunk or door. Had to cut a port to allow woofer to breathe. Bass much better with about a two inch port.

Pros: keeps speaker clean and dry. Not convinced of any sound improvement.

Cons: Had to cut port for woofer. No guidelines for port size or location.

Have to use adapters in newer F-150 which would rattle at higher volumes. These took care of that and added nice mid-low punch. Don't forget to cut out a port on the down facing surface.

Pros: No more rattle and enhanced sound.

Cons: None

Do not install without cutting out bottom

Sean from Hugo, MN on 5/17/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I tried these boom mats and they suck the life out of your music - mid-range becomes hollow and muddy and there is no bottom end. Cut the bottom out and your speakers come back to life. I ended up not installing them in my rears but I did leave them in the doors, except I cut out the back and bottom and left the top to protect the speaker from moisture. I honestly would not buy these again for car speakers because what's the point if you have to modify them anyway.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Ruins music quality, particularly mid-range and bass.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

There are some "extras" companies try to sell you that have no bearing. This is NOT one of those items. Sound deadening, vibration control, and directionality are critical components to a proper audio installation. The price is not a factor, nor is the difficulty of instillation.

Pros: Cost effective. Easy to install.

Cons: Not enough depth sizes available to fit every custom job.

These will only work if there is plenty of extra room in the speaker cutout. Unfortunately, that is not the case with the factory cutouts on a 1997 Honda Accord. I had already trimmed the flange to fit, so into the trash they went.

Boom Mats for 6x9 Speakers

All Things VeeDub from Paxton, IL on 4/25/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I picked up these boom mats since the 6x9 speakers I had installed in the rear parcel tray in my 69 Beetle didn't seem to have much bass. After the install, seemed to help a bit since the speakers now have their own contained airspace. I used contact cement to glue them on to the underside of the parcel tray, and used a few staples to secure while the contact cement was curing to full strength.

Pros: Cheap, light and easy to install

Cons: Can't think of any cons. I like them enough where I may get some for my front speakers as well.

Helps keep your speakers safe in your door

Kevan from Volcano, HI on 3/28/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I got these because water running down my window was the cause of my old speakers going bad. I first installed them as the manufacture recommends- fully sealed and used rtv to seal off the speaker wire. The bass response was greatly reduced. I ended up doing what Crutchfield and many of the other reviewers recommend and cutting out the bottom to allow ported air. Now it sounds great and still does the job of preventing water from above.

Pros: Does protect your speakers if installed in a door

Cons: The manufactures instructions caused a reduction in speaker performance, you need to cut out the bottom to allow air to the rear of the speaker.

A little big

Ryan from Lafayette, La on 10/9/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

My old lady drives a 2012 Jeep Patriot Sport. 6" x 9" in all 4 doors. There is a piece of plastic trim behind the speakers that needs to be cut out to get these baffles in. They are a little over sized as far as fitting around the speaker which creates the need for finesse while performing the install. But, they are usable and they do make a huge difference in overall sound quality in a positive manner.

Pros: Water resistant material. Makes the speakers sound WAY better.

Cons: Little big and loose around the speaker.

Great product, great price!

AndyL from South Florida on 9/3/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These speaker baffles will keep my speakers clear from dust and moisture from the trunk area, as well as keep my highs and mid-tones from reverberating throughout the trunk space. I also bought some circular baffles to keep the moisture and dirt out of my front door speakers. I'm highly pleased with them. If you want to keep your investments clean, get baffles and make sure you measure them correctly before buying and then buy the next deepest baffle. Your bass will be tighter, however, so if you like loud, loose bass you may not like the effect these baffles have.

Pros: Keep speakers clean, tight bass notes, prevents speakers using doors and/or trunk as reverberation chamber.

Cons: If you like loose bass you may not like the effect of speaker baffles.

Not really necessary

Larry M from Los Angeles, CA on 8/8/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I put these in the speakers I installed on the rear deck of my 2007 Honda accord without porting them and they were absolutely terrible. The speaker could not breath. Good thing I read up on it and many people said to cut a 3 inch diameter hole to let air in and out. I did and it sounded better. With that, I cut just about half of the bottom out. Sounds much much better now. If anything, it serves as a good gasket for the speaker as well as protection from accidentally hitting them when putting things in the trunk. Overall, it does absolutely nothing to enhance the sound. It just protects the speaker.

Pros: Protects the speaker.

Cons: Doesn't enhance the sound at all.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Although these are supposed to be for low profile speakers, I had nothing but interference due to their depth. There is nothing like hearing a squeaking window when you want to put the window open. The problem wasn't the window, but the baffle was rubbing on it.

Boom Mat 6x9

Ended up removing them. I thought it was worth a try. They may work in other situations, but the rear deck is open to the sub box and you could hear the baffles fluttering so I removed them. The speakers were also a little difficult to install with the baffles in place.

Pros: Nice idea

Cons: Just didn't work for my application.

Not a bad product so far

I got these 6x9 Boom Mat to protect my door speakers in my '95 Dodge Ram for the most part. After reading the poor reviews on it I gave it a try anyway. I needed to replace my 6x9 door speakers anyway so this time I went with a 6-1/2 round speaker with the 6x9 speaker adaptor plates. The opening for the speaker is near the bottom of the adaptor and some excess material at the top. What I did was take a hole saw and cut a 1-1/2" hole there and made a port,then got my 3-1/2" deep,6x9 Boom Mat behind the speaker and adaptor. It is like I have a ported speaker box. My review is early since I don't have my door panels on yet but decided to gave it a 4 star rating for now.

Boom Mat 6"x9" Speaker Baffles

James from Ansonia, CT on 6/18/2010

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased these for my dodge ram 1500 07' pickup for the doors. I Have dynamat on the doors, but cant access the interior skin to Soundproof so i tried to install these. They fit perfect until i had to Roll the window down, then the gears on the power window touched The baffle. I even purchased the slimeline ones and had to make a Small slice into them for the gear to pass by......game over!!!!! Fit was Perfect again until i reinstalled the door panel and then cranked The stereo up......a full on rattle trap!!!! I guess for a rear deck maybe, But if you have to alter them then return them before you cut them Or you have a high dollar foam speaker ring!!!!!

This will keep your speakers clean on the back side but they won't do much to improve the sound. I just bought a new set for the rear deck and thought I'd give these a try. They seal so good they prevent the driver from moving to produce sound. I cut the top ring off and just used for a gasket.

More details on the Boom Mat 6"x9" Speaker Baffles

Mark G.

Product Research

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: 6x9"
  • Minimum Cutout: 6.375" x 8.4375"
  • Maximum Depth: 4.8125"
  • Thickness:0.25"
  • Flange Size: 8.375" x 10.3125"

Seemed like they should fit my front doors in 2017 Dodge Charger with Beats Audio. Hoping they will reduce the bottoming out/distortion of the stock 6x9 woofers which seem to already have decent power and bass, but tend to bottom out on certain frequencies. [ Andrew  Dec 07, 2018 ]

Just purchased 4 JBL 6x9 speakers for my Jeep Patriot. Love them but I'm trying to clean up the sound a little more and am hoping to push more of that sound into the car instead of the door cavity.

the only place to mount speakers in my 89 Ford van is the doors unless using a box type enclosure. Speakers being 3 inches deep and doors being only 4 inches I need shallow baffles. [ Collin  Apr 27, 2017 ]
A
Basically using these for a speaker box where there is no space for a box. ??? Try anything once! [ Glenn  Apr 02, 2017 ]
A
I chose these to help produce a more full sound. The factory 6x9 speakers located in the back deck have a lot of air space and we need to fabricate brackets so to help with separation from front of speaker to rear of speaker is a must. These will help with that as well as create an enclosure and help with noise vibrations. [ Edward  Mar 30, 2017 ]

I purchased the boom mats to help protect the new speakers I purchased from dirt, debris and moisture and I wanted them to help with the sound quality of the new speakers and their ability to direct the sound and bass notes. [ Michael  Jun 24, 2016 ]

Used baffles on Crutchfield-bought speakers in my first car: a 1981 Honda Prelude (miss it, man). They were very effective in producing superior sound, and the baffles protect the speaker backs in the doors. I'm using them now in the trunk since that's too big an air space for the rear deck 6x9s. [ Russell  Apr 19, 2016 ]

The window seals in the front doors of my 2012 Ram Express allow water to pour into my doors. Very poor design by Ram!!! The water intrusion ruined a pair of 200.00 CDT Audio speakers in less than a year. I don't want that to happen again so I am installing these to keep new speakers high and dry.

Q
I have a 2014 Ram quad cab truck. The speakers rattle the doors terribly bad on all four doors. I brought it back to the dealership to see if there was something wrong. The techs at the dealership said thats the way it is and if I wanted to improve it, they recommended installing sound deadening material. I'm leasing the truck and I don't want to spend the time and money on that. Is there anything else you would recommend for me to do? Would speaker baffles be another choice to stop the rattling? Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
[ Jeff  Feb 28, 2015 ]

A
The baffles will isolate the sound waves from the back of the door panel and thus cut down on vibration, but they are primarily used to improve the sound quality by limiting the reflective / out-of-phase sound waves that sometimes emanate from the back of the speakers into the cabin. All cars are not build equal, so the benefit is on a case by case.
[ RANDELL  Mar 03, 2015 ]
A
I meant to say "I don't know if...".
[ Guest  Mar 02, 2015 ]
A
Hi Jeff. Sorry but I know if these baffles will help lessen your door rattle. I installed these thinking that it would help enhance the bass sound. Unfortunately it did just the opposite. In short, the speaker couldn't breathe, hence the bass output was very weak. The only benefit I realized was that it can protect your door speakers from getting wet if there's a leak in your door. To help make it sound better, I had to cut off the lower half of the baffle so that the speaker can breathe and perform as intended. Opening up the lower half will still protect the speaker from water dripping down on to the speaker. If you have the time, I'd give it a try.
[ Guest  Mar 02, 2015 ]
A
The baffles will help with the rattling but won't remove all of it, and may change your sound quality.
[ STEPHEN  Mar 02, 2015 ]
A
It mite,,,but sounds like u need that mat to go behind yur speakers,,I think baffles is for water proofing.
[ GEORGE  Mar 02, 2015 ]
A
I don't think these would help your problem. I bought these and wish to take them out. Just have to find the time to remove all the door panels. These ruined the bass response to the speakers I put in, the factory was actually better. I would ask other truck owners if they have the same problem. I worked for Dodge and don't ever remember the speakers rattling the doors..
[ Robert  Mar 02, 2015 ]
A
In my opinion the baffles are only good for protecting the backside of speakers from moisture. They might help a very tiny bit for the rattles, but it sounds like the entire door needs a sheet of dynamat, or each door may have a rod,cable ect. that needs insulated. I would take door panel off to see if that was the case
[ DAVID  Mar 02, 2015 ]
Q
Has anyone installed these baffles in the 6 by 9 openings in the front and rear doors of a 2015 Dodge Ram Crew Cab? How did they work? Any modifications needed?

A
they work great to protect speakers from water dripping down, but they do cut bass response. I suggest cutting the bottom half off and leave a shroud over the speakers.
[ Keith  Jun 02, 2018 ]
Q
Would Anyone know if these would fit in the door of a 2016 RAM 1500 Crew Cab? I know that the there are 4x 6x9's in total, one in each door, I hear 6x9's with a mounting depth of 3&1/4" bottom out in the front on the window mechanism, but in the back it's wide open, does anyone know?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your specific vehicle. They will be able to pull up research on your Ram model to help determine if the baffles will work properly.
