1996 Buick Century

Sad little speaker - meant to replace my 4x6 dash speakers - not much better than the stock speaker - with a really high price - will go with online recommendations for a much better speaker (Infinitiy/Fosgate /Polk, etc) - very disappointed in Crutchfield - since the Retro was the only speaker they had listed for my application - and there are many others that will fit this spot...

Pros:

1999 Porsche 911 Rear Speakers

Crutchfield customer from Niagara Falls, NY on 6/30/2019

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

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

With a little bit of modification these speakers fit into the rear side panel of my 1999 Porsche 911 C4 Cabriolet. They were one of two speakers available from Crutchfield as modified fits, the big difference was in prie $80 as opposed to $750.

Pros: Fit with minor modifications.

Cons: Can't handle booming bass but can live with it considering the price.

Good Porsche 911 Rear Speaker Replacement Choice

Crutchfield customer from Columbus, OH on 6/5/2019

1999 Porsche 911 Carrera

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

These speakers are OK, but expensive for the performance. In my case they were the only option that fits, so this was the best speaker that I could use within my budget. Quality is of the speakers themselves is good, but the sound quality is on the weak side as expected.

Pros: Fit in the rear of my Porsche 911 Cabrio. The thin design works in this application.

Cons: Expensive for the size and performance.

RetroSound for 2000 Nissan Frontier

Edward from Meridian, ID on 4/13/2019

2000 Nissan Frontier

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

Perfectly fine replacement for factory speakers. I needed speakers with a shallow depth for a 2000 Nissan Frontier (back door). These sound good, not great but at 4 inches what can you expect.

Pros: Shallow mount depth, sounds good

Cons: Doesn't sound great

Guest from Bristol, CT on 11/22/2018

1975 Mercedes-Benz 450SL

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

I had bought these about 2-3 years ago. They were not great and didn't notice a difference in sound at all but decided to keep them because the ones I was replacing were originals from my 76 450sl Mercedes. Shoudn't have. Now black Friday searching for black Friday deals , few years later, I looked to try to remember what I had installed (because I don't remember) and the metal was apart from the rubber woofer surround. poor quality for the money. buying pioneers black Friday deal for dirt cheap to replace.

Powerful sound for such a small speaker. Was a nice upgrade to my stock speakers. Put them in my Cheverlot Aveo. Used the Crutchfield guide to get the perfect fit speaker for my car. Thanks Crutchfield. Another amazing job... I also got rubber speaker molds fit perfectly.

Pros: Perfect fit Big sound from a small speaker Handles lots of power for its size

Cons: None

Only use if you have to

Shindog from Santa Fe, NM on 12/27/2011

2000 Nissan Frontier

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

I replaced my stock speakers (2000 Frontier) with these expecting a significant improvement in sound quality. There was no difference. In fact when I had only 1 speaker in I played with the balance and couldn't tell a difference. I thought about taking these out and returning them, but the stock speakers were about ten years old. I decided to keep them, thinking I would eventually have to replace the others. I would only buy these if I wanted a speaker to fit in a stock location, that required a very thin speaker. A better option would be to modify the speaker location and go with a different product.

Pros: It fit the stock location without modification.

Cons: Poor sound quality.

Decent sound quality for the price

venturescott from Cary, NC on 6/6/2011

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

I replaced the factory speakers on my '86 Yamaha Venture with these speakers. Overall I'm pleased with the sound from them. I had to turn the treble all the way up because of the amount of bass that these speakers can handle. They were making things vibrate on the fairing of the bike because of all the bass! They would probably sound very good in a car installation because the treble is very crisp too. Definitely a full range speaker.

Cons:
