Our take on the XTC 6"x8" 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.

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.

Where a lot draper than the speaker I was using but I made it work. Came very fast from Crutchfield.... Was a great experience and would recommend to anyone else. Thanks for the fast shipment.... And even though my order was baffles the still shipped in a larger box full of packing material.

Pros: Easy to work with....

Cons: Where about a inch to an inch and a half to deep. But I bade it work.

Do not work

Felix from San Antonio, TX on 5/3/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well I replaced all four speakers in my 2013 F150 with some Infinity Reference 6x8s and ordered me 2 pairs of these to protect them. After getting distorted audio from front door speakers, I did some reading and read some reports of the door speakers getting wet. Well I pulled the driver side speaker and after undoing a few screws , quite a bit of water poured out.

Pros: Keeps speakers from rattling.

Cons: Does not keep speakers dry.

Cons:

Should come with back cut off

SageWexford from Stephens City, VA on 1/8/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very easy to install protector, but one has to wonder if there are any installations where the installer would not cut out the back of the baffle to enhance bass response of the installed speaker. Easy to do, but manufacturer could sell them already cut for about a dollar more.

Pros: Flexible, thick foam piece, easy to pierce for screw holes.

Cons: Some installer modification required for most installs.

Works as advertised, but I need to read better

Jason M from San Joaquin valley, California on 10/19/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These work exactly as advertised. Unfortunately, I didn't read the description well enough to notice the depth listed. At that deep, they interfered with my windows as I rolled them down- in all 4 doors. I bought them for water drip protection, not perfect acoustic isolation. I adapted them to my fit ['08 F150 SCrew] by setting the speaker in them, cutting the 'end' off, behind the magnet, and THEN inserting that end inside the cut off part to create a 2-piece baffle, and using gasket maker to hold the parts together. Yes, there is air leakage, but, again, I didn't do this for acoustic reasons. I did this for splash/drip prevention. And now, except for the hole cut for the speaker leads, water leaking from the window will hit it and run off. Plus, it does provide some of the original acoustic benefits-just not as much as if I hadn't had to trim them.

Pros: Work as advertised. relatively cheap. actual dimensions equal those listed Able to trim to fit.

Cons: Too deep for '08 F150 SCrew, and interferes with window motion.

Speaker baffles

Randy M from Columbus,Georgia on 3/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered 4 of the baffles for my 2004 F150. The 2 in the front fit and I really like them. On the other hand I could not use the 2 in the back because my power window would not go up and down with them installed. So I have 2 baffles I can't use. Would like to have a refund on the 1 set.

Pros: Gives the speakers more bass and a fuller sound.

Cons: Don't order them for a 2004 Super Cab F150 for the rear. Ur power windows won't go up and down.

Seemed to work well

Alex E. from Stuttgart, Germany on 2/22/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I cut the back portion out and left some meat on the top of the speaker for water protection. It seemed like the main function of the baffle was to provide insulation between the part of the speaker that meets the door. I feel like it prevents rattling. I tested this by installing one rear spekaer without and one with a baffle. It didnt sound hollow as some people stated. If yoyu dont like the way oit sounds on your install, worst case is you lose a few bucks.

Pros: Cheap and relatively effective.

Cons: None really.

Good product

speaker baffles

mike from michigan on 2/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

these baffles are great to keep your speakers clean in doors and trunks, but they can baffle the sound as well in some speaker setups. i ended up cutting half the back out of them. that allowed them to keep water off the speakers in the front doors yet still not muffle the sound. worked nice.

Pros: cheap protection for speakers.

Cons: can baffle the sound of the speakers in some installations.

Great improvement

Jesse from Portland, OR on 10/12/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

If you want to take the life out of your sound they're perfect. They would protect from moisture though. If you must try them, install on one speaker and one speaker without. Give it a listen there's a difference.

Pros: water proof

Cons: kills sound

These baffles work excellent for my f-150!! They help bring out bass and stop vibration.

Pros: Stop vibration and bring out bass

Cons: Fit tightly

Baffles are worth it!!!

Scarpace from Austin, Texas on 9/12/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Why use a baffle? These help protect your speakers from the back side moisture and dust. They also can help muffle out unwanted vibrations or sound from behind the speaker as well. These are super simple to use, just don't squeeze them in such a way that touch the actual back of the speaker cone. I am using 6 of these on my door and mid panel speakers in my Ford Excursion. It's worth the price to help make your speakers last longer. I also believe it helps improve sound quality.

Pros: Low price for extra speaker protection! Easy to install! Helps muffle out other sounds!

Cons: None

Useful baffles

C Weaver from Harker Heights, TX on 7/2/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The baffles themselves are fairly malliable which allowed me to pull them closer to the speaker in my doors so they wouldn't rub my windows. It may only be my perception but the sound seems fuller, with a less "hollow" sound to it.

Pros: -Bendable, Formable

Cons: -Slightly oversized for the uses I had for the product.

Not For Me

momule from Rural Eastern Missouri on 6/23/2014

This item did not come close to fitting in the space available in my 2002 Ranger regular cab...neither in the doors or behind seats. They are too deep. And while one review discusses cutting them and glueing them to be less deep I'm going to go the dynamat route and not try to make this "iffy" product work.

Pros: none

Cons: Ya get what ya pay for.

They work!

Geo Eak from St. Louis, Mo on 6/18/2014

They help keep the lows inside my ride instead of having it going to anyone outside. Easy to install just remember which end works the best to put your holes for the speakers. Good for the price.

Pros: easy to add and work good for my ride.

Cons: none

Cons: None.

XTC 6"x8" Speaker Baffles

Lu from Moreno Valley, CA on 4/18/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The baffles are quality built and provide a punch to the bass. The old speakers had a lot of dust on them which won't happen with these baffles and the speakers are protected from moisture too. The only thing is they are about 6" deep. I had to cut them and glue them to shorten them so the windows don't rub against them. Alpine said the baffles could touch the back of the SR speakers with no problems.

Pros: Quality accurate bass and dust and water protection.

Cons: Too long (6") deep.

Waste of money.

They work well for me. On the rear, kept my rear deck speakers from popping due to the 5000 watts of power in my trunk. I had to make a small hole in the bottom to keep my speakers from heating up though. I will be ordering more for my doors as well.

Pros: Protects your speakers.

I have used these 6x8 baffles in several of my ford vehicles over the years. They serve their intended purpose well. They are cheap insurance for moisture, and help isolate the speaker from the door sheet metal. A good buy for sure.

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: A bit too deep, in my opinion.

JAB from OK on 8/13/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased a new Pioneer stereo system for my hubbies (new) 1993 Ford E150 XL econoline van. I knew I wanted to purchase these and install them with his new speakers. Somewhere I had read that someone thought they were a bit flimsy. I did not think that for a moment! They have a nice weight to them and if you treat them a little bit nicely when you install them you won't have any problems with ripping them or atleast we didn't! The only thing we had to do was to trim a little bit of the material off the flange after the speakers were installed. You might not have to do this but we wanted to make sure the door panels easily reinstalled. I really like these! If/when I ever replace factory speakers again in a vehicle I will definitely buy them again and I would recommend them to others!

Pros: Good weight to the material. Easy to use!

Cons: NONE!

ScottABQ from Albuquerque, NM on 10/16/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed a pair of the XTC 6x8 oval speaker baffles with new Pioneer TS-G6844R spekers in my 2002 Ford Ranger and they work well. Of course I also installed FatMat in the doors as well, but I think the speaker baffles were worth the minor cost. I was unable to install speaker baffles for the rear speakers and I can hear the difference. I also believe that the XTC speaker baffles will protect the Pioneer speakers in the doors. The factory speakers were coated in dust when I removed them. Regarding the subwoofer, which I don't have in my Ranger, I cut a generous hole in the bottom of the baffle and use the whole door as an enclosure. They work well without a sub, but I think the FatMat (similar to DynaMat) in the doors also aided the sound.

Pros: They DO improve sound quality.

Cons: None

Work like they should

Collin2000Watt from Madison, WI on 1/29/2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I selected the basic UPS ground shipping for these, and Ive tracked them since I made the order 2 days ago, and I have to say, these puppies deliver fast! I should be getting them either tomorrow or the next, at a total of 4 days, and I was expecting them to take at least a week to ship from North Carolina To Madison, Wisconsin. I have read other reviews, and an equal mix of good and bad reviews made me think a few times before I ordered. I have a few ideas of my own to make these work, and Ill explain it once I receive my package. If all goes well, I will without a doubt order the small depth version of the 6.5 inch baffles once I get my matching pair of pioneer 6.5 three ways. I have a good feeling about these so far, lets hope my judgement isnt wrong...

Do not buy these for your front speakers on an F-150 they will not fit. If you have a sub they work great for the rear. If you do not have a sub then don't buy them.

enrique from fayetteville, NC on 6/18/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put these in my 2005 F150 supercab with kicker (KS68- 6x8's) and I'm pushing them with a pioneer DEH-4800 head unit. These really tightened up the bass. They got rid of the muttered sounding lows at high volumes. I was really hectic buying these after all the bad reviews but i thought to myself "they're only 8 bucks a pair even if they suck". I bought two pairs for the front and the back but could only use the rears because the window rails in the door hit them when you roll it down which really disappointed me. The rear worked great but i think only because those windows don't roll down. These are great if you have a sub for the low bass. If you are trying to get low,long bass out of your mids these are not for you. I haven't bought a sub yet but am enjoying a major improvement in responsiveness and tightness. I listen to mostly alternative and rock and these are perfect for that genre of music (short tight bass). Definately not rap/hip hop. I only give a 4 star because of the front door fitments issue but all in all totally worth 8 dollars a pair.

Pros:

Cons:

Works well now

D-Man from Grand Rapids, Mich on 2/22/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used in a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport. After reading all the reviews of what worked and what didn't. I made my own plan. I first installed the baffles as they came, and the sound had less bass then without them. As shown to work, I cut a quarter size hole in the bottom of each baffle for air and to also run the wires through. I then glued to the inside bottom of each baffle a 1 inch thick layer of fiber fill, still leaving the hole open. Now the bass is as deep as before, but a lot tighter without the muddy sound to it. Thanks for all the feedback.

Nikhil from Dallas, TX on 9/10/2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My car has 6x8 speakers from Factory, but I upgraded to 5-1/4 component speakers. At the same time I wanted something that would give better sound quality from the woofers and make the door vibrate less.<BR><BR>I looked at the XTC baffles, read the negative reviews and was concerned. But then I thought about it logically and looked around me and all the speakers that I have in the house. My mini component stereo in my house also has 5-1/4&quot; speakers and has excellent Bass. So I decided to buy a baffle that was about as big as the speaker enclosure at home for the 5-1/4&quot; woofer. The 6x8x4.5&quot; baffle was a good approximate to that and I ordered it. Fits perfect in the factory 6x8 opening and being that it is made out of foam, also fits easily around the objects in the door frame, and when the window rolls down too. The sound is definitely better too! Not tinny like so many others have complained. I guess they have complained because they have used a baffle that fits like a glove around their speaker allowing no &quot;air space&quot; for the speaker driver to move easily, and in control fashion.<BR>

XTC 6"x8" Speaker Baffles

ecclissiass from Houston, TX on 11/11/2006

At first I was extremely hesitant about making this small purchase due mainly from bad reviews. I gotta tell you, these baffles work really well at both confining your speakers (6x8 in my case)and improving sound quality. I am presently runing two Kappa Series 6x8 in my 1998 ford explorer sport. I have them pushed by a 4 channel amp at 100x4 to the front and rear. I am extremely impressed by the "tightness" of the sound in the midranges of my rear speakers. I bought them beacuse I wanted definition in my rear speakers and not for protection. After looking behind the speakers I found the area to be bone dry. However, I found that with those spaekers in that area there was alot of resonance emitting from the spaces inbetween the panal and the cars exterior. I am well aware that sound dampening is preferred but this was an inexpensive resolution to my problem(s).

Unnecessary

Patrick from Richmond, VA on 1/30/2006

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

XTC makes sure that they point out that these "improve sound quality" while they really don't. If you look around at reviews of other size baffles, you'll see a few people say that they took theirs out and realized that they were really hurting their speakers' performance. Trust these people, they're completely right. I did the same exact thing after reading their reviews, and had the same results for my Pioneer 6x8's. These not only don't improve the sound quality, they're completely unnecessary. I looked around the area where the speakers were, and it was completely clean; so protecting your speakers from dirt is no biggie.<BR><BR>These were also extremely difficult to install. I had to stab a hole in them to run the speaker wire, then cut the edges to fit inside the grilles. After all of that, the baffles pushed the mounting depth out 1/4", and the tweeter cover rattled like crazy on the inside of the grille.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Well i haven't installed a head unit or a speaker for 30 years and i was/still am/will forever be/ out of the loop but i know a good investment when i hear it. I installed 4 speakers with these baffles and could not believe how tight they sounded so i uninstalled the baffles & cranked my new modestly priced install back up & sure enough it WAS the baffles. What a dramatic difference they make in my wifes full-sized ford! The bass is so much more present and each speaker sounds alot tighter with this low-priced add-on. If you are installing new speakers ESPECIALLY without a sub/amp in your trunk you need this item. (btw, i installed over 100 systems in the early 70's & i ain't just blowin smoke:))

Features

Product 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.

Referral [ Troy  Feb 02, 2017 ]
During install I found that without some type of backing my new speakers would be rigid mounted, with no backing. These will also keep out unwanted stuff like dirt and water from your speakers. I was not going to use anything but had second thoughts so I ordered one set to check them out and found how much better of an install you will have with these. [ Paul  Jan 16, 2017 ]
These are to protect the speakers in the rear deck. I've never used them so I thought I'd give them a try. [ Jon  Jan 02, 2017 ]

To protect my speakers and after reading some reviews, many people were very satisfied with the sound produced with these versus without. [ JOSHUA  Apr 14, 2016 ]
Recommended. I know it will sound better with this product. [ Mark  Apr 10, 2016 ]
I have an older vehicle and all my speakers are in the doors , I want to protect my new speakers from any water or dirt that may get passed the weather seals on the windows plus it will increase the mid bass and redirect the sound coming out of the back of the speakers to the inside of the vehicle instead of losing it in the doors. It's an easy upgrade to do while your swapping out your old speakers and it's not too expensive. [ STEVEN  Apr 07, 2016 ]
Helps the life of the speakers by keeping dirt and water off the speakers when using them in door applications. [ denis  Mar 04, 2016 ]
I used these on my 2011 Mustang. They were easy to install, and the speakers sounded great. This is my second set, for my other vehicle - 2013 Ford F150. After my first experience with them, I add them to all my speaker orders.Can't beat the price either! [ Troy  Jan 27, 2016 ]
Dexter explained to me. Its best to get them. Because if water gets in. Your speakers will be protected from the water. And also they will help with the bass. You can choose not to get them. But it doesn't hurt to spend a couple bucks for them. Trust me and the Crutchfield team. Dexter's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=175 [ Kevin  Jan 25, 2016 ]

1 question already asked

fiber fill is probably that polyester stuff that is probably in stuffed animals. It's safer than fiberglass (no issue w/ inhaling or itchiness) and available at most craft/ fabric stores. I would assume he means he dropped it on top - not mount the baffle underneath - so it just sits on top of the sheetmetal and your speaker drops on top of that. [ ERIC T  Dec 28, 2013 ]
I didn't put any glue, I placed them inside and held them there with the new speakers. Then I just cut the excess around them. It works great and sounds good. [ CRISTIAN  Dec 27, 2013 ]
