Overview

Our take on the Retrosound R-693

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.

Retrosound R-693

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-693 6"x9" speaker features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel chrome frame that form a strong foundation. The stiff polypropylene woofer cone with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The Mylar dome tweeter and midrange driver broadcast detailed highs and mids without sounding shrill. The tweeter assembly's low profile allows this speaker to fit behind more factory grilles.

Although efficient enough to play well with any receiver alone, these RetroMod speakers can handle the high power from aftermarket amplifiers to deliver your music with plenty of impact. Car makers put paper cone 6"x9" speakers on the rear decks of many older vehicles. Replace them with these up-to-date Retrosounds, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.

These speakers were the exact match to the power output of my new Alpine Head Unit. The reviews were a deciding factor in purchasing this set of speakers. I was not disappointed.

Excellent Sound and Clarity

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speakers were the exact match to the power output of my new Alpine Head Unit. The reviews were a deciding factor in purchasing this set of speakers. I was not disappointed.

Pros: Sound and clarity are excellent. I mounted these speakers in the rear deck of my 1969 Chevrolet Caprice. With such a big trunk, I had to turn the bass setting down on the H/U to compensate for the bass produced by my cavernous trunk! I really appreciated the package tracking I received once the package left the RetroSound warehouse in Nevada.

Cons: The mounting holes just barely matched the stock mounting stud locations in the rear desk of my vehicle. This is not really a Con, but an annoyance. Otherwise, no issues with this set.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought these to replace the stock rear deck speakers in my 1997 Honda Accord LX. These fit right in, but only two of the mounting holes actually mated up perfectly. However, that didn't bother me at all, since those two screws hold the speakers firmly. They sound much better than the stock speakers. The bass is decent, as is the treble. For the price, these are fantastic speakers for someone who is looking to upgrade from some crappy stock speakers.

I was actually impressed with the quality of sound that came out of the speakers. I replaced all four of the factory speakers and really like these for the price. I didn't have a lot of room and these were a good comprimise. I do wish they had a little more bass tho.
