Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles
Protect your speakers
Regular and slim-line sizes (Regular: 4" depth)
Our take on the Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
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.
Priced per pair
I used these in my truck doors. I like the way they make the speakers sound. I feel like the baffle will also protect the speakers from the weather.

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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.
