    Icon32 speaker baffles

    any have any experience with the baffles from crutchfield or any other place brand, putting 2 pairs of 6.5 in all 4 doors of a sedan. I ordered slims for the front doors and deep for the rear doors also they are 6.75 baffles(bigger is better). I've heard both good and bad things about them.

    1. Should I use them or Not ???????

    any info would be great

    Re: speaker baffles

    if the baffles are inside the doors, then why would you spend more money on them???


    we are talking about the same kind of baffles... as in speaker grills right????

    no, a baffle is basicaly a small foam,plastic,fiberglass enclosure that the speaker is put into.

    speaker grill is a speaker grill.

    Re: speaker baffles

    I have them and they made my midbass slightly better. I had no material behind my speakers so I added baffles with the bottoms cut out. This was recommended to me by a car audio shop I trust and they didn't even have the baffles to sell me. I would do it. Pep Boys has them for like $5.

    Are you talking about those XTC foam baffles?

    Re: speaker baffles

    Id like to know as well. Specifically which applications would improve from this (just midbass, or are there other improvements)? And what are the benefits of making an MDF baffle instead of buying a foam one?

    Re: speaker baffles

    I used them once a few years ago on two pairs of 6.5"s, I didn't notice any audible difference.

    Re: speaker baffles

    I think that baffles are cheap insurance for your speakers. IF you spend a couple of hundred on a components speaker set, why not protect them? The inside of doors sometimes get moisture and dirt in them. I have baffles on all 4 of my speakers. I really don't know about the sound, but definetly get em.
