Our take on the Retrosound R-410N

by Buck Pomerantz
Retrosound

Important Note: This is a single 4"x10" speaker, so you'll need to purchase a pair for vehicles with two 4"x10" openings.

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 chrome 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.

The single R-410N 4"x10" speaker is designed for a classic car with only one speaker opening on its dash or rear deck. The woofer features dual voice coils, each one connected to its own tweeter. Your stereo receiver connects to both voice coils, so you get a stereo mix from a single speaker. In effect, you get two 2-way speakers in one frame, for modern sound in your vintage application.

The R-410N speaker features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel chrome frame that form a strong foundation. The sturdy pulp composite woofer with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The two Mylar dome tweeters broadcast detailed highs without sounding shrill, and their low profile helps increase installation options.

Although efficient enough to play well with any receiver alone, this RetroMod speaker can handle the high power from aftermarket amplifiers. Replace that wornout old 4"x10" with this updated Retrosound, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.

Highlights:

  • single 4"x10"" 2-way speaker
  • pulp composite woofer cone with Santoprene surround
  • dual voice coils for 2-channel operation
  • dual Mylar dome tweeters
  • power range: 2-90 watts RMS (160 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 43-21,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 87 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-3/4"
  • grille not included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Priced per single speaker

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Woofer: The speaker features a rigid pulp composite cone woofer with a Santoprene surround. The woofer uses a Neodymium magnet to achieve its shallow depth, so it fits in tight factory locations.

Tweeters: Two Mylar tweeters are wired separately so this single speaker will accept a stereo input.

Dual Voice Coils: The woofer has dual voice coils, each wired with one of the tweeters. The stereo input is useful in many older cars with a single speaker location in the dash or rear deck. If used in a standard two speaker application the inputs should be wired in parallel (to present a 2Ω load) or series (to present an 8Ω load).

Gets the job done.

Written By Walter, Cleveland, OH on Monday, June 17, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Replaced front single center of dash speaker in 1967 Camaro. This speaker has dual voice coils so both left and right channels can come through one speaker. Install was smooth enough and speaker looked to be of reasonable construction. Sound is middle of the road and not as good as a modern factory speaker let alone what you would like to see from an aftermarket speaker. Considering you are getting two speakers in one it may be fair to only expect OK sound quality from this speaker. It is not a "high end" price either. Also it is a HUGE improvement over the original speakers. The car is a convertible and GM put one speaker in the front dash and one in the back. The back speaker was buried under the top when it is down and could not be heard. Lastly the support bracket supplied was way to flimsy. I had to use some thicker steel I had laying around or the radio would have fallen away from the dash and rattled.
Pros:
Left and Right channels from one speaker
Cons:
Only medium sound quality. Weak mounting bracket.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice construction. Easy install into 1969 Cutlass Dash using the supplied mounting kit. Perfect solution for getting dual channels through the single speaker location in the dash.
Pros:
Easy install ans=d comes with install hardware kit
Cons:
Wish it came with an integrated mesh cover to protect speaker. Installed my own.

retrosound 4x10

Written By nate, rosemount mn on Wednesday, April 04, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
overall i am pleased with this speaker although it wasnt a total bolt in installation. I purchased the speaker to replace my original in my 69 superbee. I liked the dual voice coil idea due to the fact the car only has one front speaker. I did need to use the exising frame off of my old speaker to make this one work with the ca because the speaker mounting holes provided were a inch too short.. I am powering it with a pioneer 4400, no amp and a pair of 6x9 rockfords in the rear. Sound quality is good
Pros:
good fit, dual voice coil
Cons:
cost is kind of high for what you get.

Great Vintage replacement

Written By Zipper, Rochester, NY on Monday, March 05, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased this to fit the 1965 Rambler American 440 convertible I am working on. The inclusion of the mounting kit was just what I needed to complete the installation. I went a bit farther than most. I have a hidden stereo amplifier in the glove box for my i-tunes but I mounted and wired a 4 pole, double throw switch so that I can switch it to the series mode and hook it back to the original AM Radio. Plays great and sounds better than the original speaker when hooked to the radio and the clarity for the stereo is wonderful. Makes great sound and fits perfectly with the included mounting kit.
Pros:
Easy fit, great for going to a stereo without cutting or modifying the car. Will also work as an 8 ohm speaker when the left and right channels are wired in series. Great versitility!
Cons:
None. Sounds great.

Finally stereo sound in front of my '70 GTO without cutting holes! Bought this speaker as an open box item without regret. Took me 10 minutes to make a mounting bracket and it was in.
Pros:
Easy install, good sound
Cons:
Wish I found this sooner.

Retrosound R-410N

Written By Cooper, Falls Church, VA on Sunday, January 01, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
A geat find! Perfect fit, sound is great, hooks up as stereo with only one speaker, takes both the front left and right wires.
Pros:
It is an exact fit for my 1982 Dodge Ram D350, which should also cover the other D series as well as the Ramcharger.
Cons:
A little bit too high which causes the dash's speeker cover to bow slightly. I am going to use the Dremel tool to trim some of the height of the oval ridge on the bottom side of the cover so it will fit without bowing.

Not for original 70's era radios

Written By Big B, Louisiana on Wednesday, October 19, 2011
 
This may be a great speaker but ....This speaker will not work with an original 70's era GM radio. It requires a 10ohm impedence speaker ...this one is 4ohm. You can harm your radio if you hook up the wrong impedence speakers.

Retrosound 4x10

Written By Pontiac Ed, Downers Grove, IL on Wednesday, June 08, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this speaker for a factory center dash speaker application in a full size '62 Pontiac. This speaker is very shallow and it solved an interference problem between the previous replacement dash speaker and the body of the original AM radio. Its unique design allows you to wire both channels to one speaker to give a fuller sound from a single speaker, but you can wire it to a single channel. I wired it to both front channels of a moderately priced Alpine head unit and it sounds pretty good although it would probably sound better if I ran the signal through an amp. I did run in to a slight fitment problem with the factory speaker studs in the dash. I had to file the fastener holes in the speaker frame slightly to get the speaker to fit, but that's no big deal.

I would definitely recommend this speaker to people trying to get better sound in an older car while maintaining the factory appearance of the interior without modifying the car. Its short profile is a major asset for dash applications

The mounting system made it a great way to install it in my 1969 Olds 442 with air
conditioning. I don't know how I would have mounted any speaker without the bracket
and screw. The sound is descent, a whole lot better then what ever came from the
factory.

RetroSound 4x10 speaker

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
What a perfect solution to the blown out flush mount dash speaker in my 59 Coupe
DeVille. Installation took less than 10 minutes. The speaker had the exact spacing for
the mounting bolts/nuts and it sounds great with my XMp3 and an amplifier hidden
inside the glove box. I'm glad I checked Chrutchfield for the solution. Delivery was great
too. Awesome product, service, web site, delivery etc...resulting in total customer delight!

2 speakers in one

Written By David, Mercer, PA on Saturday, March 27, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This was a great purchase for replacing my single center mounted speaker in the front dash. I had to modify the bracket, but the speaker had some bolt holes to attach the new mount. The fact that it serves as both the left and right speaker in a single package works out great and the sound is fantastic compared to the old original speaker.
