    Foam Baffles? Do I Need Them?

    I recently ordered some rockford fosgate fantasticQ components from sounddomain.com, I want my speakers to last, do I need foam baffles?

    Re: Foam Baffles? Do I Need Them?

    How many people out there have foam baffles installed in their ride?
    Are there any alternatives to foam baffles?

    I use the XTC foam baffles from Crutchfield. My components are worth the 10 bucks to keep rain off them.

    The FanaticQ's are worth the price, I'd get them. They might even help reinforce bass! A lot of the newer cars, and older to newer luxury cars have moisture bariers (that actually work) so it might not be a concern unless you have a 94 Lumina or something.
