VWKPBC Kick Panel Enclosures with Speakers

Retrosound includes a pair of R-652N 6-3/4" speakers.

You have options

Old VW Beetle convertibles are cool vehicles but they weren't designed for great sound. It's particularly hard to find a good spot for aftermarket speakers, but now RetroSound offers a neat solution — install their VWKPBC enclosures in your Beetle's kick panels and start rocking out.

Great sound in a bug

The package includes two ABS plastic enclosures and a set of RetroSound's R-652N 6-3/4" speakers. Each enclosure holds a RetroSound speaker, angled up toward your ears to create a more powerful stereo image. These speakers will work well with a factory or aftermarket radio, but they handle up to 50 watts RMS so they'll be very happy with an outboard amplifier.

Compact, paintable enclosures

The R652N speakers have a mounting depth of less than 1-3/4", so these enclosures don't take up a lot of space. You can paint the enclosures to match your VW's interior, and each enclosure already has a cutout for the RetroSound speaker, so they'll just pop right in. These enclosures fit in 1956-70 Beetle convertibles; they will not work in hardtop Beetles or Super Beetles.

Product Highlights:

  • ABS plastic kick panel enclosures with precut speaker openings
  • includes a pair of R-652N 6-3/4" speakers
  • speakers are angled up for stronger image
  • enclosures can be painted
  • power handling up to 50 watts RMS
  • 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.

Fit Well and Looks Great!

Written by: Bug Lover from Texas on March 24, 2012

1970 Volkswagen Beetle
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Fit Well and Looks Great but we covered the kick panel with carpet that matched the rest of the car.

Pros: easy to install.. Looks great

Cons: A very very slight modification was required. Nothing that anyone could not do with a hammer.
