Overview

Our take on the Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch 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.

Protection

Mike from Sandy, UT on 9/30/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Baffles doing what they do best. Protecting and insolating the speaker.

Pros: Great product. But I did end up cutting the back and bottom edge off of mine. Needed more mid-base. Leaving the top and some sides to get the protection I was after. Seals off the back of the speaker to the door just as expected.

Cons: None.

Improve your Boom & Clean Up Your Room

Shawn from Murfreesboro, TN on 7/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Quality/thickness seemed sufficient. Old door speakers showed excessive wear and WATER damage. This baffle helps prevent that. I cut a "hole" in the back, at the bottom for the wires and air flow (based on CF recommendation). Increased hole size until the speakers seemed to have sufficient air flow. Without the hole, the speakers didn't move much and the hole improved bass response. Used a Propane Torch to heat up / melt / shape the back part that was hitting my window. Installed behind Kicker DS 5/1/4" speakers in custom mounts. 2002 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab - rear doors.

Pros: Get the job done, flexible, improve sound, protect speakers

Cons: Thickness may seem good, but I had to use a Propane Torch to heat up / melt and re-shape the back of the baffle that was hitting my window. Likely different from one install to the next (and if like me, you put in over-sized speakers.)

Great product!

Surpassed my Expectations

Mark from Ironwood, MI on 4/21/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Way more durable than I expected. Puts factory baffles to shame! I installed these in the dash and roll bar of my '97 Jeep Wrangler. At first they seemed too big for my speakers, but once I test-fit everything and marked the holes, they fit perfectly. The baffles seem like they will protect the speaker from dust and moisture and provide a secure padded installation. I was skeptical purchasing these, but am very glad that I did.

Pros: High quality Easy to install/trim Protects speakers from the elements and excess vibrations

Cons: None!

Great product and quick shipment.

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles

rodforshort from Little Rock, AR on 5/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I put these behind the midrange driver in a pair of Pioneer Home Speakers model SP-FS52. The midrange open to the two lower woofer witch caused all kind havoc with the sound. Cleaned them right up. The mat material is not that quality and very fragile. There is not a big selection to chose from for this part.

Pros: deep, trim able,

Cons: fragile, easy to tear

The boom mats worked great. the sound is clear& not tingy.No metal vibrations .I would like to buy a radio but the prices are a little more than I can do at this time.

Pros: Good sound.

Cons: None.

They are thick foam

Nice upgrade

Rock from Brighton, MI on 2/12/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice upgrade to the OEM setup. My original speakers were damaged by moisture in the door, the sure will keep the new speakers dry.

Pros: Universal fit.

Cons: None

Unsure

John from Mooresville, NC on 1/11/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Seem like nice material but a little thick for the job and forced me to run to the hardware store to get some longer screws as the Boom Mat's thickness set the mounting adapter plate back. I did use them in both the front door and the rear deck speaker replacements on my 2003 BMW 325i but more because I already bought them. In hindsight, would have probably only used in rear deck.

Pros: Easy to shape and cut to fit how you need them too

Cons: Really thick, lack of clarity in how to prep them (one review said to drill a hole to allow speaker to move freely while playing, one guys said the hole should be big, next guy said round and not rough cut). No instructions on prepping the mat came with the mat. Personally, I cut a 1.5" round hole in the back of the mat. Unsure of the benefit of using the mats.

AndyQ from Issaquah, WA on 7/27/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product was as described and worked well in my installation location. Sound improved as well as being protected from the elements. I accidentally ordered two pairs thinking they were sold individually as the description isn't clear. So, there you go, they come in pairs.

Pros: Cheap As Described Come in Pairs

Cons: Description isn't clear they come in pairs

They serve the purpose

mpls matt from Minneapolis, MN on 6/15/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have a Jeep TJ with a sound bar. I bought the boom mats to stop my dome light cover from rattling. They worked great, and super easy to install. The speakers are new also, so I can't compare the current sound to how it was without the boom mats. It sounds 10x better than the old speakers.

Pros: Super easy to install Stopped rattle of other vehicle parts

Cons: None

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles

Brian M from Virginia on 11/20/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect fit in the doors of a '93 Corolla. Keeps the crap off and doesn't affect the sound at all, maybe better. I also used the poor man's sound deadner... spray-on bed liner. 3 coats does the trick!

Pros: Works like it's suppose to.

Cons: NONE

Arnold S. from Streamwood Il on 8/12/2014

The baffles were an extremely tight fit in a Grand Cherokee door. We did test the speaker sound without a permanent installation. Frankly the speaker sounded better without the baffle. Would not recommend the product.

1997 Honda Accord - not needed

Cheesehead from Pago Pago, American Samoa on 4/28/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

With Crutchfield's extensive fit database, I am surprised they sold them to me for my application. 1997 Honda Accord has factory baffles that are required to mount speakers. (Factory baffles provide spacing for magnet to window clearance inside door.)

Pros:

Cons: Unusable on 1997 Honda Accord front door application.

Boom Mat 5-1/4-inch Speaker Baffles

Will from Baltimore, MD on 3/3/2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product. I used these for installation of some speakers for the dash of my Jeep Wrangler. A little ingenuity got them installed and they help the speaker to sound great as well as keeping debris from entering into the back of the speaker.

Pros: good idea for keeping out debris and assisting the speaker in realizing its full potential

Cons:

Boom Mat

Anonymous from Columbia, SC on 9/17/2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Installed these in the rear speakers on roof of a 2001 jeep cherokee. They were a little too deep so I cut out the back of the baffles and used them for framing the installation and eliminating rattles.

Pros: Thick material - maybe too thick

Cons: muffled sound, check your depth

Easy install

Use is pretty self explanatory. Seemed to fit pretty decent with mounting brackets.

Reduce "boomy sound"

Dave_in_Rio_Rancho from Rio Rancho, New Mexico on 11/29/2008

The baffles do what they are supposed to do - isolate the speakers. Contrary to what is said in the description, the purpose of these baffles is to tighten up the lower midrange by "reducing the size of the enclosure". That is why you use enclosures for trunked mounted speakers so they won't sound "boomy."

Pros:

Cons:

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.

  • Minimum Cutout: 6.0625" x 5.8125"
  • Maximum Depth: 2.6875"
