Helix Blue B4X
4" 2-way car speakers
Our take on the Helix Blue B4X by Crutchfield's John Pollard
German engineering meets car audio
Helix builds their low-profile Blue Series speakers to fit into more factory speaker locations while maintaining their high standards for sound quality. Helix earned its reputation by paying attention to the details, and these speakers really uphold the family name.
You'll hear excellent high-frequency detail from the 1/2" Mylar dome tweeter, while the polypropylene woofer supplies solid midrange. If you want to enjoy the little details in your music without breaking the bank, you'll want to check out these Helix speakers. Grilles are included.
Installed on a 1979 240d Mercedes, They sound great.

Woofer Materials: Each woofer cone is made of Injection-Molded Polypropylene. This process of cone molding assures a uniform cone thickness for superior linearity and clarity. It is also lighter weight and more rigid for decreased distortion and improved bass response.
Mylar Tweeters: Each speaker has a 1/2" Mylar dome tweeter for clean, accurate highs.
Magnet cover: The B 4X are shipped with a rubber magnet cover to protect the speaker. If the cover is removed the depth changes slightly:
- Top Mount Depth: 1.622"
- Bottom Mount Depth: 1.815"
Removable Mounting Tabs: Most 4" factory speakers use four mounting screws, however, in some vehicles, only two are used. In these cases, you can bend the unnecessary mounting tabs until they break off. The B 4X also includes the mounting clips used in some older European cars (in this case, all four mounting tabs are removed). Care should be taken handling the speaker after any tabs are removed because the broken edges may be sharp.

There is likely a limiting factor that prevents the other speakers from fitting. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what you will need for an installation in your vehicle, and let you know the reasons why the other speakers will not fit.

I just bought a 2014 2LT spark. I would like to replace the speakers only. so should I buy 6 of these? and will they all fit? Thank you for answering my question Linda T [ lindataylor813 Feb 04, 2014 ]
I do show these speakers as being a good fit for both locations while retaining the factory speaker grilles. [ Jeff Dec 11, 2013 ] Staff
