Make your vintage vehicle more modern

Let's set the scene. It's a gorgeous day, and you want to cruise around in your vintage ride. What would hold you back? Your vintage ride may still have a vintage radio that's showing its age. That's where the RetroSound Laguna comes in. This ingenious radio fits a wide variety of classic cars and trucks, thanks to RetroSound's patented "InfiniMount" adjustable shaft/bracket system. You can even install the Laguna chassis remotely with an optional RetroSound extension cable for customizing versatility. Now you can cruise in style and enjoy your music in a whole new way. 

Simplicity is key

The Laguna looks like an old-fashioned radio, but the vintage push-button styling conceals a thoroughly modern receiver that's made to entertain you. You can enjoy all your favorite AM/FM stations, plus you can plug your smartphone, Dock-and-Play satellite radio, portable music player, or just about any source with a headphone jack into the auxiliary input on the rear of the receiver. The solid built-in amplifier delivers 18 watts RMS per channel, plenty of power for most situations.

More power to you

Want to add some serious power to your RetroSound receiver? The Quad4 amplifier delivers 45 watts RMS by four channels to your speakers without taking up a lot of space. The super-compact amp plugs into your radio's harness and, in most cases, can be powered from your fusebox, so you'll save a lot of time and effort on the installation. RetroSound also makes low-profile car speakers that fit into a wide range of older cars and trucks, so you can be sure that your sound system will do justice to your vintage vehicle.

Adapt the Laguna to a DIN opening

If your classic car has already been altered to accept a DIN (2" tall) radio, we offer a repair kit to convert your dash opening back to its original splendor!

This radio does not play CDs.

    Crutchfield customer from P C Beach, FL on 2/3/2019

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Nice looking unit and can be set up for any older vehicle. Does require a little time to adjust the shafts but the time spent makes the difference in the finished look. RetroSound offers a nice variety of faceplates and knobs which was needed being the dash had previously been "modified" with a couple of extra holes. To all the old Mustang owners the 308-409 faceplate with black textured inserts works well in hiding damage and matches up nicely. FM reception is good but the sound quality is not as good as I expected. Of course speakers do make a difference and you're pretty limited on a '65 Mustang convertible. The Laguna unit is pushing two 6 1/2" Pioneers in the kick panels along with two 3" speakers in a retro panel that fits where the original 4x10 speaker mounted.

    Pros: Nice looking unit, very adjustable, good reception.

    Cons: Sound quality Is just OK.

    Nice looking radio in my 62 Volvo. Sound is very good on local stations, but when you get 35 or so miles away the reception goes bad. My vintage 1972 radio was much stronger at pulling in stations. Tried both antenna settings: local/distant.

    Pros: Good looks, good sound. A lot of presets.

    Cons: Weak reception in rural areas.

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Good sound quality, easy to use. A couple of things, though. I was sent an additional connector that was not needed from Crutchfield, it came with a tracking number, and is probably a $10.00 item. The radio itself came from the manufacturer with no tracking information, it just showed up on my porch. A tracking number would have been highly preferable on the radio itself. Also, the radio needed to be assembled before it could be installed. Not hard to do, but there should be some mention of having to assemble the radio before installation. The control knobs are smaller than the OEM radio & kind of cheesy. Actual installation was easy after figuring the wiring out.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Good sound for the money. Looks great in the car. Great tuner, and having an auxiliary input is a great feature. My only complaint is that a corded aux input is a bit old fashioned. Bluetooth would be much nicer.

    Knobs are plastic and smaller than pictured. Worse yet the stems of the rotary switches that the knobs mount on are very thin and easily bent. Plastic push buttons for station pre-sets feel wobbly and loose. Sound quality is okay, however it is hard to program.

    Pros: Good sound

    Cons: Flimsy knobs, stems and hard to program.

    First Laguna radio shipped from Retro Sound did not work, no display. Retro sounds promptly shipped replacement that works fine. I cpmpared wiring harness that plugs into the radio and found the spades in the wrong position in the plastic connector. The face of the radio was already mounted. I installed the replacement radio and it worked fine.

    Very slow shipping speed. I still have not been notified of shipment of the items I ordered! Unreasonable to me.

    Pros: Not sure, haven't gotten the stereo

    Cons: Don't know...

    Built-in Tuner & Aux Input

    Shaft-Style Radio

    Infinimount Shaft/Bracket System: The Infinimount Shaft/Bracket System allows you to mount the Laguna radio in a variety of classic cars. This is because the shaft-knobs are not mounted to the unit, but instead connect to the unit via a harness so you can space the radio's shaft knobs at various distances (0.3125"-2.1875") from the chassis of the radio, using the supplied side-mount brackets. You can move these brackets forward or backward and move them in any direction. You can even cut, trim, or bend the brackets if needed. This shaft-style radio is a true problem solver for tough to fit applications due to its unique bracket system combined with small mounting size.

    Faceplates & Knobs (sold separately): There are multiple vehicle specific faceplates & knobs available for the Laguna. In addition there are universal faceplates which allow you to use the integrated break away tabs to modify all aspects of height & width of the plate, and even drill in your own shaft holes to fit virtually any car.

    Note: The RetroSound Laguna does not come with a faceplate or knobs. A universal mounting plate or vehicle specific faceplate and knob set will be needed for installation.

    LCD Display: The RetroSound Laguna features an LCD with a digital read-out. The unit's LCD offers an ultra-wide, off-axis viewing angle and is daylight compatible. The LCD will display clock, tuner, and song/artist information. The color illumination of the LCD can be switched to either white or green.

    Built-in Tuner & Aux Input

    AM/FM Tuner: The Laguna features a built-in RDS AM/FM tuner. The unit's tuner features 3 FM bands and 2 AM bands. A total of 30 AM/FM presets can be stored manually or automatically. Select between Local and Distant settings can aid in listening to weak FM radio stations or compensate for stations that have too strong of a signal. This unit's tuner can be set to USA or European tuning.

    Aux Input: The universal shaft-style receiver features a 3.5mm auxiliary input connected to the rear chassis by 7" pigtails. The Aux input provides a connection for portable external audio sources such as a MP3 player or  CD player.

    Audio Section

    18W x 4Ch Amplifier: The Laguna is equipped with a 18 watts x 4-channel RMS/45 watts x 4-channel Peak amplifier.

    Preset EQ + Bass & Treble: The Laguna features the following preset EQ curves (Classic, Pop, Rock, or Off) to customize your music listening. The Off mode activates manual Bass & Treble adjustment.

    Balance & Fader Control: The Balance adjustment function allows you to adjust or pan the stereo sound from the left or right; this is helpful to compensate for the position of the driver in relation to the speaker locations. Adjustment range is 0 to 12. The Fader Control allows you to fade the sound from the front pair of speaker to your rear pair of speakers. Adjustment range is 0 to 12.

    Turn-On Volume: You can set the Laguna to power-on to the same volume level (0-46) every time, or let it default to the last volume when turned off.

    Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every knob turn or button press will output a beep tone.

    Q
    this radio does not show up as fitting an Alfa Romeo GTV-6, but it looks like it should do the job. is there any reason why there should be any fit issues?
    [ Richard  Jan 07, 2018 ]

    A
    You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss vehicle-specific compatibility in more detail. They can give you more insight about fitment and/or installation in your Alfa Romeo model. Thanks!

    Q
    my existing radio opening is 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 and my knobs are 5 inches apart. will this thing work for these dimensions?
    [ Everett  Nov 03, 2018 ]

    A
    the radio opening is pretty standard, and the knobs are adjustable, which make it a pretty simple install. I do suggest using a support bracket for the rear of the radio for vibration support.
    [ Aaron  Nov 21, 2018 ]
    A
    The Dimensions of the radio face is 3 1/2" X 1 /2". The knob shafts can adjust to almost any length. This radio should fit your installation with little or no trimming. I've got this radio in my 1966 Chevy pickup. It woks GREAT !!!!!

    Honestly haven't put it in yet, got side tracked. I do know the knobs seem to have a lot of flexibility as to where you can locate. Sorry I can't be more help

    No it doesn't. On Crutchfields website you can enter the features you would like and iit will display radios that have those features

    They have a model that does but mine, and if this is the exact same one, doesn't. It does have an auxillary Port for a cord however

    They were good quality plastic, not what I would consider a lightweight cheap design
    [ skip  Aug 18, 2018 ]

    The knobs I received (for a 1966 Chevy C10 truck) were metal. BUT, Retrosound offers different style knobs based on your application needs. My suggestion is to contact Retrosound for further information.
    [ Stephen  Sep 26, 2017 ]

    I haven't installed but went and looked. They are plastic but seen to be a more "solid" plastic. Hope that helps.
    [ SHAWN  Sep 25, 2017 ]
    A
    You can order whatever knobs you want at Retrosound. Buy the piece from Crutchfielf, ask them if they have a selection of knobs you can choose from, and if not, buy the knobs directly from the manufacturer. From my knowledge, the knobs I bought are metal, but some maybe plastic, but I do not know for certain.
    [ RAYMAND  Sep 24, 2017 ]

    The knobs I received are plastic, look good like original. I believe there is a choice of knobs to match your application when you order

    This will depend largely on your vehicle. For details on installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on what works best for your vehicle and what you will need for an installation.
