Gets the job done

It does what it exactly says it does. A little expensive for a piece of foam though.

Not a lot to review here, but really love these baffles. They do the job and now don't have to worry about elements getting to my speakers and ruining them. Shall see how long they last.

Installed these XTC 6 1/2" speaker baffles in the doors behind my new Polk speakers to protect them from water damage. When I removed the old factory speakers, I noticed there was some moisture and water on the back side of the speaker magnet and basket. These are the shallow mount (or slim line) baffles but their 2-3/8" depth was a little too deep for my doors -- I only had a 1-3/4" of clearance between the door glass and speaker opening in the door frame. I had to trim the back to fit and also cut a small opening, about 1" x 2" in the bottom of the baffle (side away from dripping water) to allow the speaker wire to pass through. These baffles are flexible and fit easily through the speaker opening. It appears that these baffles should provide adequate protection to the speakers from moisture and water damage and the foam structure while not really strong should be good for this application. I also checked the sound of my speakers with and without these baffles and I couldn't detect any difference in the overall sound and they didn't kill the bass response. Perhaps this might be due to the opening I cut in the bottom of the baffle for the speaker wires.
