Overview

Our take on the XTC 5-1/4" Speaker Baffles

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.

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.

Baffles contain sound that would be lost through the backside of the speaker and help push the sound forward projecting it it the direction the speaker is pointed.. It also act as a sort of dustcover keeping things off of the voice coil..dust, dirt soot..they all can affect the quality of sound .. [ David  Feb 21, 2016 ]

Have pair of 6x9's in the front doors and they sound good, will match with these rear door speakers [ LARRY  Jan 28, 2016 ]
These baffles assist in reflecting the sound forward from the speaker instead of loosing sound from the rear with the door that cannot be heard. Cannot beat the price for something that works so well. [ Mike  Jan 04, 2016 ]
My friends speakers rattle, and I don't want mine to rattle. [ Lori  Jan 02, 2016 ]
I trust the suggestion that these are 'required' or 'strongly recommended' because Crutchfield staff do an impeccable job preparing people like me for a quality self-installation. [ Mark  Jan 02, 2016 ]
Looked like it would help installation of really good speakers in a really old car a bit more weather resistant. I didn't use them because I was able to re-use the OEM speaker mounting adapter. Be wary the depth of these baffles could interfere with window operation. [ Robert  Dec 21, 2015 ]

1 question already asked

When I purchased mine about two years ago, it did. [ JAIRON  Sep 28, 2015 ]
It has been almost two years but I think It had two baffles in the package, if Crutchrield says there are two in the older then believe them since they are good at what they do. [ JOSE  Sep 28, 2015 ]
