Waterproof foam baffles from XTC fit behind speakers to keep them clean and dry. They compress easily to fit the installation, and form a mounting seal that can reduce panel vibration.

Use these speaker baffles along with a Dynamat kit when you install your new speakers, and you'll enjoy improved sound and performance.

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.

XTC 6-3/4" Speaker Baffles

Crutchfield customer from Norcross, GA on 4/4/2019

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

The baffles work as designed. I purchased them because my newly installed speakers were distorting when it rained. Water was getting in the connection. The wires are staying dry and the distortion is gone. If your after market speakers have a deeper mounting depth than the factory speakers, I highly recommend these baffles to keep everything dry. Keep in mind, that your bass is reduced with these baffles however your highs are not affected. I'm convinced now that I need to add a subwoofer.

Pros: Keeps speakers dry

Cons: Bass is compromised

Not worth the side effects.

JW from Bountiful, UT on 6/15/2018

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

These will probably do what they are intended to do, protect the speaker. But the side effect of sucking all the bass out of the speaker is not worth it.

Pros: seals the speaker and protects it.

Cons: limits the airflow and sucks the bass out of the speaker.

Great investment! Great sound reinforcement

Andy from Sturgis, SD on 12/15/2016

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

Worked great in creating more mid bass from my Fosgate P1675's. Also happy with the way they fit. I did order the deeper ones for my 2003 Suburban and found out that the windows in the rear doors would hit the baffles so I had to modify them a bit, which was real easy to do. I would have been better off buying the shallower ones for the back door, but that was my fault. The product worked great, it still seals up my speakers from dust, moisture etc. and also gives me much better sound. I am very pleased with these baffles.

Pros: Keep speakers from getting dust and moisture on them Reinforce the speaker for better sound quality Isolate the speakers and keeps them from resonating against the metal of the door (where my speakers are)

Cons: I would really have liked to see some application data. Not knowing what the best depth of baffle was best for my vehicle I chose the deepest ones only to find out they were too deep for my back doors and interfered with the operation of my rear windows. They were easily modified though and in reality I could have taken a measurement prior to ordering, but I'm lazy and I didn't. Not the company's fault but it still would be nice to have this information available when ordering.

Idk, it fit over my speakers. Easy to with scissors so hopefully it'll keep them raindrops off of my speakers. They're kind of deep, so I wouldnt have been able to keep the backside of it on if I wanted to, since the window on my '16 corolla woulda hit it near the bottom.

Next from San Antonio, TX on 5/4/2016

Protects speakers from water damage. You will need to cut a slit for speaker wire to run through, and a quarter size hole so that your speakers don't get muffled by the tight air space.

Pros: Water protection

Cons: Have to modify

Angel from Pasadena, CA on 4/17/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So didn't realize that I was supposed to cut whole for ventilation and they sounded muffled. Once I realized this I opened it up again and cut the back out of them and the sound was way improved. I was surprised how much more bass and sound it had before I cut the baffles. Would recommend.

Pros: Better sound and protection

Cons: Instructions not clear

I bought these because the last set were ruined buy water. Now I'm sure they do the job of protecting the speakers but may as well not have speakers at all. The sure baffle the performance. In my case I could have just thrown a handful of rocks in the bottom of the door. That's how is sounded when the back of the baffle was smacking the door.

Pros: Good idea

Cons: Useless for good sound

Good product

Chad from Topeka, KS on 4/9/2016

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

Bought both standard and shallow depth since I didn't know what would fit best. Used the shallow depth for clearance reasons. Seem to work very well, haven't noticed any vibration or rattling noise since installing. And the extra protection is always a good thing, especially since there was a good amount of dust inside my doors (darn dirt roads). Install was pretty easy. Cut off some excess material and made a cut out section that looks like a smiley face below the company logo for wires and air flow. Then clamped them in place using my speaker mounting brackets.

Pros: Eliminates vibration and rattling noise Extra protection from elements Easy install

Cons: None I can think of

Alex from Athens, GA on 1/22/2016

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

While installing new speakers in 2012 GMC Terrain, I noticed back side of the speakers were wet and I had some slight door vibration after the initial installation. I installed the baffles to cut down on the vibration and keep moisture out of the speakers. I did have to cut a small slit in the baffle at the bottom to allow the wires to pass through. All in all these worked like a charm!

Pros: -Keep speaker rear dry. -Reduced door vibration

Cons: -No wire pass through

Speaker baffles are always a good idea. They keep water and debris from the backside of your speakers and I think makes them sound better.

DWigs from Bowie, Md on 9/14/2015

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

Ok, so there's no doubt you're getting some extra moisture/elements protection -- but what about their effect on the sound? The ONLY true way you're gonna tell what they do to YOUR speaker's sound & interior acoustics is to 1) Not install them, then listen carefully -- then 2) Install them, then listen carefully [A LOT OF @#%#! WORK - YEEAS!!] So be that as it may - I installed 2 only in my rear door speakers - and consequently - they sound better/tighter/punchier than my front speakers - GO FIGURE! - So I'm going to buy 2 more now, lol

Pros: Easy to install & modify if necessary, added moisture protection, low cost, but most importantly --- enhanced sonic clarity in your interior.

Cons: Hard to measure or know exactly what they do to the overall speaker sound unless you try with and without...

Good product, just be careful...

Thomas from Missouri on 7/6/2015

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The baffles definitely help the overall sound and protect the door speakers from the elements.

Pros: They keep the sound projecting forward into the vehicle, thereby keeping the cavernous doors from affecting the music.

Cons: They will tear if there are any sharp edges in the speaker mounting area. I had to use tape on the sharp metal surfaces to protect the baffles from getting cut. If they do tear, tape the tear well with electrical tape otherwise you'll hear distortion as the woofer causes the tear to vibrate.

Only for speaker protection

_level_ from OKC on 4/2/2015

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

Purchased these for aftermarket install for 2002 Sierra. Running on x998 HU power only. Cut small 1"x3" below speaker assuming it would vent well enough as I read from other reviews. Now have cut more than 50% of basket away just to get reasonable bass response. Nice idea to protect the speaker, foam is easy to work. Probably wouldn't buy again. Also used in 4"x6" rear doors, need to "modify" them in a similar manner.

Pros: Good for some added protection from the elements.

Cons: Can negatively affect woofer response.

Great Product!

Jl Audio and Alpine Speakers from Illinois on 3/5/2015

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

I had the smaller ones in my car for 10 years. They got ripped when my system was stolen, so i eventually had to replace them. I put them in the rear deck on my Alpine co-axial 6.5 speakers. Using spray glue, i attached poly-fil to the inner walls of the baffle. I was able to turn my HPF all the way down to 50hz, and the speakers don't distort, even at full volume. There was an improvement in mid-bass clarity, too. They are kind of flimsy, and they are certainly no substitute for a proper enclosure, but given how easily they installed, and the difference they made, i am happy. They sound better in these than they did in the smaller ones i installed 10 years ago. Overall, i am very happy with these. USE POLY FILL! I have installed these with, and without, and it sounds better WITH the poly-fil.

Pros: Improved mid-bass. Improved clarity. Easy to install. Got rid of all the distortion. Separates the rear deck speakers from the subwoofer's airspace.

Cons: A little small of an enclosure for perfect sound. A little flimsy; an idea for a future model would be to include a thick piece of rubber at the bottom end.

worth the money

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

As for any gains in sound quality, I cannot attest to any. I was told they act as an enclosure and will make the bass "hit harder." I dont know about that, But I didnt realize how much water and moisture our speakers see. I had to take the door panel back off and it had rained a day or so earlier. There was water all over the outside of the baffles. I never realized speakers get wet. And one of the other reasons I went ahead and got these is that I was concerned that the aftermarket speakers would have more bass and may introduce vibrations. No vibrations so far! So if you get them , make sure the hole you cut for the speakerwire is oriented on the lowest point so if any moisture collects, it can drain, and pay attention to where your window will roll down because my window kept pulling the speaker wires off when i would roll it down.

Pros: keeps vibrations away, prevents moisture from reaching the speaker

Cons: none that i know of

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

These looked like they would work. But I was disappointed when I tried to fit them in place. They are way too big around and too tall. I tried to modify them to work. That didn't work very well either. So I threw them away and decided the speakers will be fine without them.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Didn't fit.

These look like a nice product but are very deep. To deep for the doors I wanted to use them in. But I do not hold that against the product. It was my fault for not getting a proper measurement before I purchased them. If you have the space for them I'm sure they'll work great. But measure first!

XTC 6-3/4" Speaker Baffles

Duane from Raleigh, NC on 1/4/2009

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

A must for most door speaker installs! These work great for 4" and smaller speakers as-is. For 5.25" and larger the internal volume of the baffle is too small for lower notes, and since it is not rigid it will wreak havoc on the speaker. To remedy this, cut a 2" or larger hole on the downward-facing side of the baffle (when installed). For door speakers, do not cut out the back. By only cutting on the downward-facing side (door speakers, usually) you will maintain protection from water and still benefit from the gasket seal it creates at the mounting rim of the speaker. Assuming the mounting surface does not have other holes close to the speaker (within a foot or so) this will greatly improve speaker performance.

Pros:

Cons:

Get the bigger size!

Ben from Great Falls, MT on 7/7/2006

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

I agree with the previous review for the most part, and let me explain why: This smaller size (with less space between the back of the speaker and back of the baflle) can have some unwanted effects depending on the speaker enclosed. In my case, the cone movement of the speaker would cause the baffle to suck in and rattle against the back of the speaker. I ended up having to cut out the back of the baffle to fix this problem. On a positive note, the general theory behind these seems sound enough. They are made decently enough and would provide adequate protection for speakers (especially those mounted in doors). The seal around the speaker is also pretty good considering the vacuum that was created in my case (resulting in the unfortunate rattle). I've seen first hand what can happen to an unprotected speaker in a car door. For my sound setup in a previous car, one of my speakers eventually sounded distorted so I pulled off the door panel to take a look. Sure enough corrosion had built up where the wire connected to the speaker. After a thorough cleaning, the speaker sounded fine again. In conclusion, I would definitely recommend the regular size baffle and not the slim version to avoid the issues I've had.

The Morel Tempo Ultra 602 in the front doors of my Honda Odyssey have terrific dynamics, but at certain bass frequencies the door mechanism vibrates and buzzes so I am hoping these items deaden some of the vibrations.

good question ideally you want the speaker to have enough breathing air. you probably would want to experiment. cut enough so that air can move freely, plug it in listen if it sounds muffled cut a little more til your happy with the sound. for me I first cut the back in 1/2, then the under portion of the baffle. my main concern was weather protection of my speakers. hope that helps you a bit
