A vintage fit

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-463N 4"x6" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an amazing 1.35 inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 80 watts RMS. They'll deliver strong performance powered by a car stereo or an outboard amplifier.

RetroSound builds each speaker around a low-carbon, black steel basket, using a polypropylene woofer cone, a Santoprene™ rubber surround, and a Mylar tweeter. Translation? These speakers will stand the test of time in your vehicle, shrugging off damage from moisture or temperature extremes. Whether you're customizing an older vehicle or just looking for some nice replacements, these RetroSound speakers will fit the bill.

Product Highlights:

  • 4"x6" 2-way speakers (pair)
  • polypropylene woofer cone with Santoprene surround

Product Research


Woofer: The speakers feature poly cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds.

Tweeters: The tweeters are low profile Mylar domes.

Neodymium Magnets: The N series speakers feature neodymium magnets. Because neodymium produces a much stronger magnetic field than ferrite (of the same size), the magnet size and mounting depth are substantially reduced.

The magnet fell off...

Written By David, Alaska on Monday, October 07, 2013

First things first. Crutchfield is a fantastic company, I've made many, many purchases through them over the years. Thank you Crutchfield.

Now on to the review of these speakers.

The magnet fell off the back of the speaker!

Yes, that is right, I installed one speaker, turned on my head unit, turned up the volume a bit, faded over to the left and it all of a sudden started making a terrible, low volume noise.

I pulled the speaker out, and sure enough, the magnet fell off the back of the speaker!

I would NEVER buy another product from retrosound - not until they figure out how to make products that is.

I will continue to buy from Crutchfield.

Pros: Not one single pro about these speakers... nothing... same price as real speakers, worst possible quality.

Cons: None - they were absolutely the worst product I have ever purchased. I have received more durable and reliable items as toys in fast food kids meals!

They fit!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It was very hard to find speakers that would fit my 1986 Porsche 944 and clear the electric windows. While these speakers don't have the best sound, they are certainly more than adequate.

Pros: Very small compact speakers.

Cons: Average sound quality. Very small magnets and plastic cones.

PERFECT for Corrados

Written By Victor, Riverside on Monday, December 10, 2012

For you Corrado owners looking to replace the rear 4" x 6" speakers, well this is the speaker to have. I have a 93 Corrado and they replaced the factory speaker perfectly. No modifications needed; just remove, replace and install. The plus is that it came with free wire harnesses that allows you to connect directly to OEM vehicle connector. It was just unusual that the harnesses were sent separately. Believe it or not I received the speakers within two days while the harnesses took five days. So don't plan on any installations unless you don't care to use the harnesses.

The quality is good and it's amazing how compact they are; it looks like your not getting enough for your money :D

Pros: Compact

Cons: Not much to say other than there could be a little more base coming out of them. But other than that they sound very good. I would recommend them.

Perfect Fit

Written By TG, Washington, MO on Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were bought to replace the original speakers from a 1986 Porsche 911. They are a perfect drop-in fit. I was even able to use the original mounting hardware from the Alpine speakers. Because of the very shallow mounting depth these were the only ones that could fit and they do fit perfectly. The sound is great considering they are only a shallow 4x6 speaker. The rep at Crutchfield suggested these speakers and he was absolutely correct. Highly recommended for this situation.

Pros: Fit. Sound.

Cons: none

Good speakers

Written By Wild Bill, Spring Lake, NC on Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice speakers, way better than stock. These fit into my Porsche 911 (993) with no modification needed.

Pros: Sounds good.

Cons: Not enough base, although that's not a fault of the speaker.

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new RetroSound R-463N

Reduce ambient road noise and your vehicle's "rattles," for better sound inside your car.
You'll need speaker wire to connect your speakers to your amp.
Keep your speakers clean and dry. They compress to fit behind your speakers.
These speaker connectors are handy if you're running new speaker wire or if your speakers have oversized terminals.
The right tools will help keep your installation simple and clean.
If your stereo doesn't cut the deep bass from your full-range speakers, a set of bass blockers can help prevent distortion and give you cleaner bass too.
