Our take on the Boom Mat 5"x7" 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.

Boom Mat 5"x7" Speaker Baffles

Archie from Lafayette, LA on 7/25/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Reviews are mixed on what these do for sound quality, but I buy them for other reasons. I cut the back off of them, since they would be too deep and drag on the window anyway. I appreciate having the water protection over the speaker and that the outer part of the baffle provides a gasket between the speaker and door metal. Sure, you could cut your own foam or use foam tape for a gasket, but these are just cheap enough to add to a speaker order and not worry about it.

Pros: Speaker protection and mounting isolation from the sheet metal.

Cons: No idea if they do what they claim.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just recently finished the installation of my ebay auction , $ 700.00 stereo I won for $ 96.00 ! Of course , with the help of Crutchfield techs , an amplifier install kit speaker wire , 2 sets of boom mats ( this is what you asked me to review ) The Boom Mats virtually eliminate vibration , protect the speakers , and direct the majority of the sound into the vehicle . I am extremely happy with all my purchases and the help I received from Crutchfield . Thanks !

Pros: See above review !

Cons: None .

Boom Mat

GlenG from California on 1/23/2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I read the reviews and I purchased the 5x7 Boom Mat. Most of the reviews stated they were a must when installing your speakers. My speakers sounded tinny loosing all the bass. Sorry but the Boom Mat did not live up to my expectations.

Pros: Durable product. Well designed.

Cons: Speakers had all tenor and no bass.

Shipped quick and received it just as quickly. Showed up wrapped well and not smashed as these often can be. Fit perfect for my application, but then again Crutchfield usually makes sure that you get what you need, great job guys!

Makes a Difference

Jamey R from Eldridge, IA on 7/10/2009

Installed these in a '92 T-Bird w/4ea Kicker 07DS680 5"x7" speakers running off a Kenwood KDC-BT742U pushing 22W RMS. They do deepen the base response and reduce distortion noticeably. Recommend cutting a 1" or so hole to "port" them and run the speaker wires through. Also, don't use these if you run more than 20-25W. I tried running similar ones in my '03 Ranger on amp'd 5X7's pulling 60W a channel but there was way too much motion in the woofer at high volume and they severely distort, even with a 2" port. Overall, I give them 4 out of 5 because of the added protection and cleaner sound out of a base head unit. If you could run some real power with them, I'd give them 5 out of 5.



Certainly Makes A Difference

Keith from Huntsville, AL on 5/8/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been using 4 of the Kenwood KFC-6880ie 6X8 speakers in my 2001 Ford Taurus Sedan for over a year now, and they have never sounded quite right from the beginning. I finally figured out that there was resonance being created by the metal to metal mounting of these speakers. I was too cheap to buy and install Dynomat so I desided to try these. After installing these, my annoying resonance went away and the bass response improved as well as the Mids and Heighs. More sound is directed toward me, rather than being lost in my doors and my rear deck. They handle more power at higher volumes without the distotion that I was previously experiencing. It also eliminates the metal to metal contact and perform more effeciently. These may not work for everyone, but they work great for me.




tloon from Auburn Mass on 1/27/2009

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed four of these on my new 5x7 door speakers in my truck. Was totally disappointed in the sound of the new speakers, not knowing these were the problem until a local sound guy said take them out. Sound was like night and day after removal. The only thing they are good for is protecting the speaker from rain. Buy two of these, and cut them in half, and put one half on the top only of the speakers for water protection. Crutchfield took care of me after I called to complain, to their credit.




Hands-on research

Product Research


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.

1 question already asked

no. they fit snug to the 5x7. [ everett  Oct 21, 2014 ]
I don't know I would think so. It depends on what you are using them for. Like myself I cut them in half so I could length wise just so the water coming from outside would not get the speakers wet. Some have said they don't like the way they sound totally sealed so they cut a hole in the bottom of the baffle to let some air move through it. Hope this helps [ Louis  Oct 21, 2014 ]
Probably not. It will vary with each speaker but these did not leave a lot of room at all around my Alpine 5x7s. I actually should have bought the deeper ones for my application anyway, as they buzzed against the back of my wire installation and i ended up taking them out. [ THOMAS  Oct 21, 2014 ]
