Hideaway antenna with great AM/FM reception

RetroSound's amplified hideaway antenna uses active magnetic field circuitry to give you outstanding AM/FM reception. Whether you're looking for a sleek, custom look, tired of weak window antennas, or simply tired of worrying about what could happen to your fender-mount or roof-mount antenna, the HPA1 is a great solution for your classic car.

It installs easily, using a standard Motorola antenna plug and your radio's power antenna wire. You can put it almost anywhere in almost any vehicle, even behind your dash, thanks to the included 105" antenna cable and power lead.

Note: This antenna is designed for mounting inside a vehicle, and is not weather- or heat-resistant.

Note: Most vehicles will require additional installation parts — please identify your vehicle if you haven’t done so, then check here for a list of parts. You can also call an Advisor for more information.

Great alternative

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and mount. It is under the dash and I did notice a lot of static but we don't have the best reception in the area anyway. The hidden antenna is better than using an external antenna or not having FM reception at all. Can't beat the price either.

Pros: Size, easy to mount and price

Cons: For the price, it is great,but definitely not the highest quality materials used to make it.

Works great, pulls in all local stations and hides nicely under the dash.

Does the job. The connector is a bit fragile, be careful if you have to unplug it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Helped bring in FM stations very clear. However, I am still having difficulty acquiring AM stations with my new JVC KW-R800BT stereo.

Pros: Compact with a built in power booster.

Cons: Should come with some adhesive to mount unit. Possibly double stick tape.

i got nothin'

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I hooked this thing up to my kenwood radio for better reception but got nothing but static. I mounted it behind the radio because I have plenty of room back there & the instructions said it was ok. I got literally nothing: just static. It may have worked in a more open location but I wanted it hidden and thats why I bought it. Sorry folks. This one was a let-down

Pros: Easy install. Came with everything you need. Plenty of length for installing far from source.

Cons: it didn't work when mounted behind the dash

RS HPA-1 did not improve reception much.

Written By Spudlips, WI on Thursday, July 11, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The description and goal of this antenna was to place it anywhere, even under the dash, in order to get great reception. I connected it properly and placed it under the dash. It did not improve reception, and the radio fades in and out. Not worth the money.

Pros: None

Cons: Does not work as advertised on a brand new JVC radio deck.

Good product.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It works. Just wish it had a better way of connecting the power cable. As it is, it's sitting rather precariously in the old adapter that came in my car.

Pros: Makes for a much cleaner look. Easy to hide.

Cons: Needs better power cable.
