Soup up a classic

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-693N 6"x9" 3-way speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an impressive 1.78" inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 100 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 treated paper woofer cone, a Santoprene™ rubber surround, and a Mylar tweeter and supertweeter. 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:

  • 6"x9" 3-way speakers (pair)
  • treated paper woofer cone with Santoprene surround
  • Mylar dome tweeter and supertweeter
  • power range: 2-100 watts RMS (200 watts peak power)
  • frequency response: 40-21,000 Hz
  • sensitivity: 90 dB
  • top-mount depth: 1-13/16"
  • grilles included
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Why replace your car's original speakers?

The speakers that originally came in your car were made from inexpensive materials, designed to create acceptable sound at the lowest possible cost to the manufacturer. If you love music, you deserve better. Name-brand aftermarket speakers deliver fuller, richer sound with considerably more detail and nuance, and they're capable of playing louder and cleaner than factory speakers. Connect new speakers to your factory radio and you'll get the best possible sound from your dealer-equipped system. Pair them up with a new car stereo for a level of enjoyment that can rival a high-fidelity home audio experience.

Product Research

Features

Woofer: The speakers feature rigid pulp composite cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds.

Midrange/Tweeters: The tweeter and midrange 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.

Compact

Written By Dale, Oregon on Sunday, May 04, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This low profile speaker has very good high and mid range performance and good bass. I got this for my girlfriend's 09 sentry front doors and she can hear clearer vocals and better all around sound compared to the 20w factory speakers. The sentra's mounting setup didn't require low profile speaker as the application chart said, but otherwise happy with the speakers.

Pros: Good sound and easy installation.

Cons: Had to trim a couple tabs off the speakers to fit the door adapter.

Perfect fit/sound

Written By Just me, Waterbury on Saturday, May 11, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect fit and great sound for my 2010 Nissan Sentra. Were the only speakers shallow enough to fit my car's 2.5 in front door panel depth without compromising sound quality. They sound great with my pioneer avh 3500. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Pros: Depth size, outstanding sound quality, good price

Cons: Now I have to buy better speakers for the rear to match the sound quality of these!

RetroSound R-693N speakers hard to install

Written By Jim M, Sacramento CA on Monday, June 04, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I do like the sounds from them after they are installed inside an enclosure. Before installing under a dashboard they sound very tinny, metal-like. The installation under the d ash was very difficult because the mounting-holes in the speaker did NOT align correctly with the mounting bolts on the car. the speaker 'holes' were about 1/8 inch off from the bolts. I needed to redrill and expand the existing screw-holes in the speaker to match-up with the car bolts. The holes are the 4-corrner-holes that needed re-alignment.

Pros: sound is so far, so good

Cons: the 4-corner mounting-holes on the speaker do not align with all 4 bolts under the dash. I needed to re-drill (expand) 3 of the 4 speaker-holes to align and mount the speaker.

Low Profile Retrosound Speakers

Written By Anonymous, St. Louis, Mo on Sunday, May 15, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers are very low profile and fit into the rear factory speaker
locations in my 1981 Corvette. The sound is good, but not exceptional. Perfect
solution if you don't want to modify to fit deeper speakers, which is the case
with most aftermarked speakers. I tried Polk Audo's and they wouldn't fit. These
are a great compromise. Highly recommend if you have space problems and
want an upgrade over factory speakers.

Get everything you’ll need to enjoy your new RetroSound R-693N

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.
