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.
Average Customer Review(s):
Great for the price. Sound very nice for a little 4 inch speaker.
Pros: decent sound, cheap price
Cons: little to no bass (again, 4 inch speaker under 50 bucks)
Fit perfectly and the shipping was amazing. The baffles arrive two more mornings strrn NJ Jun
Pros: Easy use and make rhe sound so much better as well as protect the speaker. The foam acted as a spacer as well allowing me to to install the weaker either hitting anything.
Cons: If you didn't need the clearance the baffle would act as a spacer.
Installed, jeep wrangler dash corners. Read the reviews, and glad I made the purchase. For a couple dollars, they absolutely make a difference. This is my 2nd personal jeep installation, I didn't install any in my first. Hence, I can verify there is a difference in sound quality
Pros: Improved sound, minimal investment
Cons: Wish I installed in my previous jeep
Unless you have a REALLY old model car or truck you don't need these.
They are going into a 1990 VW Westfalia. There mounted in the front doors (slim version). Helped protect against moisture in the doors and enhanced the sound quality.
I've never installed baffles behind my speakers before but the shock to finally hear music so clearly was astounding. They were so easy to install in my 1993 Toyota Camry front doors. They block road noise at bay so you can hear only your music plus they keep dirt and dust away from the back side of the speakers. I highly recommend them
Pros: Fantastic product
These were WAY too big for the opening. Even with trimming they wouldn't work. It was like a little kid wearing dad's clothes. I finally just tossed them, as the return shipping would have been more than they cost.
I bought these to go with the Pioneer TS-G1042R 4" speakers that I ordered. Boom Mat must be using a different measurement standard than Pioneer. I cut them down to match the speakers per the instructions, but they're just a smidgen to large for the speaker. As a result the don't really seal up as well as the product descriptions indicate. If they were about 1/4" - 3/8" smaller in the speaker cone size they would be a perfect fit, but as is, they are 4" which is really too large for 4" speakers. It doesn't sound logical, but once you've tried to install them you'll know what I mean.
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.
