Protect your new car speakers from bass distortion and enjoy cleaner sound with Crutchfield's Bass Blockers. Each Bass Blocker handles up to 50 watts RMS with a 6 dB per octave roll-off. Here are some general guidelines for matching Bass Blockers to speaker size.

Speaker Size Cut-off Frequency

Get these Bass Blockers to help eliminate buzzing noise on speakers

Crutchfield customer from Los Angeles, CA on 7/28/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased a 14 Chevy Spark EV with the original front and rear speakers replaced with 4" Kicker CS speakers. At first the sound quality was terrible on lows and highs so I started to look for a solution. After some researching I found that the Spark EV originally had 8 ohm speakers while the Kicker CS are 4 ohms. So I believe that the stock amplifier for the front speakers are not equipped for the frequency range of 4 ohms. I went on YouTube and found a video on testing hertz noise levels on speakers and found that 0-150hz on the front speakers was making a irritable buzzing noise. I called Crutchfield and let them know my situation and they recommended me the Bass Blockers. I tried the 150hz and 300hz and the 300hz blocked most of all the buzzing sound from the speaker. I used some foam tape and placed it around the foam cone and the rim of the speaker which eliminated all the buzzing noise entirely. It did remove some bass, but I have the rear speakers and plan to add a small subwoofer. I am very happy with my purchase and the recommendation of the Crutchfield team, the sound quality is far beyond what I imagined possible in for these speaker on the stock amplifier with the help of the Bass Blockers.

Pros: They help reduce the bass or buzzing noise on the frequency advertised. Easy install

Cons:

work great. my woofers were getting frequencies they were not prepared to handle. The crossovers in my set only did tweeter to woofer, not woofer to sub. the effect of these was not just to keep out the bass the speakers could not handle, but also that the woofers sound so much better now that they can focus on processing only the frequencies they are meant to.

Crutchfield customer from Nicholasville, KY on 4/8/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Hard to quantify, but limiting the lower bass frequencies to these tiny 3.5" dash speakers made sense to me. Ordered the 600 hz per Crutchfield's selection chart.

Pros: Inexpensive. Thanks for offering them.

Cons: Had to adjust the connections to fit on the speaker terminals. Minor deal.

Perfect plug and play! These work great. Swapping out factory tweeters for a solid pair of after market tweeters is a GREAT way to improve your music. Factory systems are basically flat and the company yeast and volume added by a good set of tweeters can do wonders. These capacitors will keep them clear, loud and protected!

Pros: Price, ease of install, functionality

Cons: NA

Protect those precious little speakers

Tad from Seattle, WA on 9/6/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I built a little satellite / sub-woofer system into a kitchen cabinet. Every so often a track would come along with a bass signal strong enough to bottom out the 4" cones on the small speakers. (ouch!) Bass blockers to the rescue. Now I can crank the volume and not have to worry if my speakers are being damaged. Cool! Just one thing I'd like to mention to the folks at Crutchfield, I'd gladly pay a few more bucks if you'd throw a set of mating connectors in the box.

Pros: They work great, low cost, quick install

Cons: No mating connectors

My advisor Artie recommended this product and he was spot on. We'll use this product in concert with C2 Series 3-1/2 » 2-way car speakers. I'm using AC to component system in the front of a Dodge ram mega cab and adding these base blockers along with the 3 1/2 in. Absolutely amazing combination I would highly recommend any of these base blockers to complement the function ability of a component or multi speaker R/L F/B channel for Full range audio

Pros: Extremely well built hi function ability ample wiring harness length

Cons: None so far

Miguel from Sanger, CA on 6/29/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I've used other brands, and didn't see much improvement on cutting out specific frequencies, but these worked. I have these wired on a new set of 4" co-axials that are being used to fill in some rear imaging. Did the job, no bass or mid bass coming through, which can sometimes damage smaller speakers at higher volume. I opted for 600 Hz cut-offs for my setup. Even with the crossover option in the Alpine head unit set steep, I could hear distortion in the previous speakers I had before the new set. Not anymore. Would recommend to anyone who wants to make sure to prevent certain frequencies from damaging speakers.

Pros: Worked as advertised. Terminals on both ends of blocker made it easy to connect inline, and not have to splice into speaker wires.

Cons:

Bass Blockers: Cheap Fix For Too Much Bass

Jason from Port Wentworth, GA on 6/25/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Did the trick! Due to speaker degradation (common problem in 2007 Toyota Tundras), I replaced the factory mid-bass speakers in the front and rear doors. After that I began hearing dull thumping during heavy bass notes, which lead me to think that too much bass was being sent to the new speakers (could be I diagnosed the problem poorly, admittedly). Bought these 150hz bass blockers and the problem went away immediately. I did have to turn the bass up on my system to get the subwoofer to compensate, but it's doing so quite well now. Great products, great price.

Pros: Cheap, Easy to Install, Well Made

Cons: None

when I replaced the stock 3.5 dash speakers in my dodge the new ones "jl c2's" where attempting to play full range and while I love jl products no 3.5 speaker made is capable of playing loud bass. so I knew i needed bass blockers. I am not a stereo expert so I wasn't sure what size would be most appropriate to get the most range possible out of my speakers. thankfully crutchfield lists which blockers are correct for the size of the speakers and I now have great music coming from the dash.

i used them with a high power head unit ( Sony mex-GS820BT) I feel these are a must for the 4X6 infinity kappa speakers I installed in a 1998 jeep TJ, the speakers are rated for the source, BUT by cutting the low end Hz, there is no distortion at higher volumes/power, just use the balance and fade on your unit to your liking, these will bring in the highs and save your speakers (distortion is a speaker killer)

Pros: worked well east to install price

Cons: none

Product Research

Features

Bass Blockers: Bass Blockers stop speaker distortion caused by excessive bass relative to a speaker's bass output capability. They are especially useful with small diameter speakers and tweeters.

Crossover Point: The crossover point changes based on the speaker impedance.

Model 2 ohms 4 ohms 8 ohms
007BB150 300 Hz 150 Hz 75 Hz
007BB300 600 Hz 300 Hz 150 Hz
007BB600 1,200 Hz 600 Hz 300 Hz
007BB5000 10,000 Hz 5,000 Hz 2,500 Hz

Easy Installation: To install the Bass Blockers, slip the female connectors of the bass blocker onto the positive and negative speaker terminals of the new speaker, and plug the male connectors into the speaker wiring adapter harness' positive and negative leads. If you don't want to use the terminals, cut them off, cut the speaker lead at a convenient location close to the speaker, then splice the Bass Blocker into the positive and negative speaker leads and insulate the connections. Bass blockers are not directional, so the orientation of the Bass Blockers on the positive and negative speaker leads is not important. Polarity is important; the white wire is positive and the black wire is negative.

I bought bass blockers because I do not want to ruin my new speakers with too much bass. [ MIKE  Dec 26, 2018 ]
A
I bought two sets of these to be used in parallel on the separate mids/highs in the doors. This will set the cut-off at 75Hz (one = 150Hz, two in parallel = 75Hz @ 4-ohms (per channel)) and above so as to limit the low-bass distortion of the mids. The subwoofer will do all the work below 75Hz anyway. The reduced bass extension of the mids will lower excursion distortion and improve midrange clarity at higher levels. [ Paul  Dec 04, 2018 ]

3-1/2" Infinity Reference dash speakers sound incredible but distort low midrange at higher volume (windows down, music up!).

Well crutchfield only has down to 150hz on blockers. If your set on 80 hz. Google 80hz bass blockers. Theirs 1 that is 80 hz. Parts express.

A
Maybe go higher than the 150's. I bought 2 pair however, after I put them in my front 6.5's I noticed that they didn't have any real effect so I never installed them in the rear.

Q
Can I install these on 3 way kicker 6x9's?
[ Aaron  Apr 03, 2018 ]
4 answers
A
You can, but the 6x9s should be able to handle bass down to 60hz or so. I wouldn't use bass blockers on those unless you have something else to handle the lower frequencies. I use these on my dash speakers (3.5 inch) and let my 6x9s in the rear handle the bass.
[ Jeffery D.  Apr 04, 2018 ]
A
yes you can install them inline with a 3 way 6x9. However, if you do this, you will be limiting the performance of the mid and low range portion of the speaker. In most speaker set ups the bass blocker is used only in line with the tweeter, to limit the low range frequency from blowing the tweeter. Most Speakers designed for multiple ranges have individual limits in place for each of the ranges they cover. My suggestion would be to look at the specifications of the speakers you are looking at purchasing. Find out if they have built in limiters. If not, consider running a two way mid and low with a satellite tweeter.
[ mark  Apr 03, 2018 ]
A
Yes. But you wouldn't want to. It'll block all your bass and a lot of the midrange. I installed these on some little 3 inch full range dash speakers to get rid of the bass and such. They act like a kinda upper mid to high tweeter. With that being said. No, don't install them on 3 way speakers. Unless you wanna take 70% of your speakers capability away.

I didnt word my first question right. If i had bass blockers hooked up to a car speaker would i be able to tap into the same speaker and still get the line output converter to play bass for my aftermarket sub?
[ Jonte  Jan 26, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
It would be recommended to use a different speaker-level signal to your aftermarket sub/amp than the speakers you have connected to bass blockers. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

[ jared  Jan 26, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Yes, if your dash and door speakers don't have a crossover. I used factory wiring so my dash speakers were getting the same signal as my door speakers. Installing the 150hz blockers made a positive difference in qualit of sound. I'm very glad I took this step.

I don't think they are designed for use with a "line level" signal, They will cut the low end "< 150Hz" to an amplified signal. I use them to protect my smaller dash speakers from frequencies below their ability.

you could but they block the bass frequency, so if you are hooked up to subwoofer then you will only get the high frequencies. not what you want for a sub.

I can't see why not but why would you want to block low frequencies to a speaker designed for low frequencies? Btw, crutchfield has excellent support, give them a call and they'll get you set up right.

You can use these with any signal. However, be cautious to the speaker you are directing them to as they will affect the output. For example a 150hz bass blocker on a subwoofer would be pointless. But, if you use it for a 6.5" coaxial it would make sense. The point is to minimize low frequency extremes on smaller speakers to maximize output.

Q
I have 2 speakers that are 4" but run at 8ohms. The other 2 are 4x6s and run at 4ohms. I see that these are rated at 600hz at 4ohms. What do you suggest I use for the speakers running at 8ohms?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss the compatible options. They will be able to determine if everything will integrate and help you make the best decision for your system and your budget.
