Overview

Our take on the RetroSound R-573N

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-573N 5"x7" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an amazing 1.56 inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 60 watts RMS. They'll deliver strong performance powered by a car stereo or an outboard amplifier.

A vintage fit

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-573N 5"x7" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle.

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 treated paper woofer cone, a Santoprene™ rubber surround, and two Mylar tweeters. 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.

I have yet to install them because they came from the manufactures location and took a few more days to get to me but as soon as the weather breaks I will get right to it.

Risky modification to make this fit

SB from high point, NC on 3/30/2016

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First - the speakers sound good and may have been the only hope to fit into this spot.....BUT 1) The plastic spacer interfered with the holes in the metal framework.....They plastic actually covered about half of the spacing for the mounting, so I had to drill this out (and almost ruined the speakers) 2) The speakers are not quite as thin as the Blaupunkt speakers I removed --- unfortunately this seems to be true for most 5x7 speakers these days --- but my rear now has fit gaps due to having to squeeze between the rear window curve and the deck behind the rear seats...not a great look, but beats having no sound in the back. (not quite a factory fit for a 35 year old car)

Pros: They "squeezed" in and seem to be the thinnest 5x7 on the market....good sound

Cons: Had to cut away plastic to be able to use the metal tabs to mount the speakers....very risky (safety and to the product) Not quite as thin as the speakers I removed -- but tried as my last chance speaker based on Crutchfield's recommendation.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have yet to install them because they came from the manufactures location and took a few more days to get to me but as soon as the weather breaks I will get right to it.

Pros:

Cons: The only thing that I was upset with was the package I received from Crutchfeild a few days earlier. It contained the two packages of wire harness(s) and the install guide. It came in a box larger then the box that the 4 speakers came in. I know a large bubble type mail envelope would have been much cheaper. I now have about a gallons worth of those styrofoam shipping peanuts and another box to break down and toss in my garbage can. What a waste of shipping material...

Features

Woofer: The speakers feature efficient paper cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds.

Tweeters: Each speaker has dual low profile Mylar dome tweeters.

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.
