Boom Mat 6"x8" Speaker Baffles
Protect your speakers
Regular and slim-line sizes (Slim-line: 3-1/2" depth)
Our take on the Boom Mat 6"x8" 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.

Boom Mat 6"x8" 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.

Why did you buy this?
Rattle reduction and better inside sound quality [ Devin Mar 13, 2017 ]
Great product and quality. Norm was excellent to deal with, a wealth of information and friendly at the same time. Highly recommend him and the company to all who seek car audio help. Thanks Norm. [ frank Jan 24, 2017 ]
first choice out of stock, but this one fit - for an extra dollar per unit, I wasn't interested in waiting... [ Z Mar 16, 2016 ]
Problems in previous installation. These fixed previous issues. [ Jeffrey Jan 27, 2016 ]
To protect my new speakers and improve the sound [ JUSTIN Jun 05, 2017 ]
They fit the speakers and the space constraints. [ SCOTT May 10, 2017 ]
To get better quality sound out of my car speakers [ willie Apr 15, 2017 ]
To aid in getting a better sound [ tony Apr 15, 2017 ]
The speaker I bought will be mounted in the front doors. If any water seeps inside the door it can ruin expensive speakers. By mounting the speakers in the baffles, they can protect the speakers from damage. Crutchfield suggests cutting the bottom half out, so as to allow the door to act as a speaker box, thereby giving better sound. [ WILLIAM Apr 11, 2017 ]
To keep moisture away from the speakers in the car doors [ Jason Mar 01, 2017 ]
shallow depth [ B Feb 10, 2017 ]

To protect speakers [ Chad Oct 14, 2016 ]
Recommended [ TJ Sep 30, 2016 ]
I purchased these Speaker Baffles to help prolong the life of my speakers by keeping dust and moisture away from the back side of them, Mainly because I take my truck in some messy places. [ wade Sep 12, 2016 ]
I bought these as a test with full-range speakers. Actually muffled the sound. Would have worked better with tweeters, and let the full-range speakers resonate like factory speakers without these baffles. [ DARRELL Aug 17, 2016 ]
To protect bottom of speakers in the trunk area... [ stang-guy616 Mar 25, 2016 ]
Had good experience with installations in my other vehicle. Like slim fit option. [ Eugene Mar 18, 2016 ]
