Retrosound R-352N

A vintage fit

RetroSound makes it easy to replace the factory speakers in almost any classic, vintage, or even new car. Their RetroMod Series speakers feature extremely shallow baskets designed to fit into a wide variety of standard speaker locations. They may look old school, but RetroSound builds their speakers from the ground up, using the latest techniques and materials.

Each R-352N 3-1/2" speaker features a sturdy polypropylene woofer with a Santoprene surround that delivers strong performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The Mylar dome tweeter broadcasts detailed highs without sounding shrill, and its low profile helps increase installation options.

Although efficient enough to play well with a factory radio, you can also power these RetroMod speakers with an amplifier to deliver your music with plenty of impact. Replace your wornout old 3-1/2"s with these updated RetroSounds, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.

  • 3-1/2" 2-way speakers (pair)

Retro sound R52N for 1981 Rabbit Pickup

Written By Obet, California on Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have bought this speaker 2 times as oem replacement. Quality is way below my expectation. The 2nd pair is less than 8 months old and is experiencing heavy distortion after less than 1/2 hour my new jvc is on even with low volume. I had to the metal bracket to make it fit and close the cover. The speakers stick out enough where I can't fully tighten the screw on the dash covers. I'm looking again for higher end quality speakers but has not found a replacement. For sure not buying this speaker again. It's a shame Crutchfield are not testing this speaker for fitment and finish on a VW rabbit like my pickup. They would have known there's a problem with quality with either fit and durability and sound quality. For the price of this pair of speakers, not worth it.

Pros: Better than nothing.

Cons: All the things I stated in my review pertain to what's wrong with this speaker. Made cannot expect much from a Made in China speakers like this pair Retrosound R352N speakers I purchased twice not realizing the 2nd purchase were for the same low quality speakers.

Not worth the money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these speakers due to size constraints and was expecting better quality but I was mistaken. The speakers look good when you open the box but after they were installed you can hear distortion and cracking all the time while they are playing. I will never recommend or buy another of their products.

Pros: None

Cons: Horrible sound quality

Please read complete review!!! Sounds great, fits terrible.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these 3.5" Two-Ways as a replacement for my in-dash speakers on my 1987 Chrysler Fifth Avenue. I would to first say the speakers sound incredible! They really sound so much better than the factory speakers. You don't expect much from 3.5s but these really perform great.

However, the fit is terrible. Yes, I understand fitting every vehicle is a challenge but I would never recommend these speakers unless you know they will fit properly. The problem is with the width of the frame not allowing the speaker to fit down into the speaker area of the dash. I had to make a modification to the dash in order for them to fit even remotely decent.

Would I recommend them? No, I would not have spent the money to purchase them and kept the factory 3.5s in there. Alas, I made the best out of a bad situation. They do sound great even though I worry they do not fit properly and could "rattle" if my modification doesn't hold.

Pros: Incredible sound for a 3.5

Cons: Horrible fit, even for a low-profile 3.5

2009 Jetta install

Written By Luke R, Baltimore, MD on Wednesday, July 06, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered these in an effort to solve a problem with other aftermarket speakers being to deep and hitting the window when it was rolled down. For the most part it was a perfect fit, the low profile along with the provided bracket the install was clean. However the wiring directions are not detailed enough to explain what to do with the three wires on the factory harness, when, of course the new one only has two (+,-) If your not careful you will disable the tweeter also in the door if you wire it wrong. Overall very happy. Sound quality is good but remember there only 50 bucks, but a nice upgrade from the factory.
