Important Note: This is a single 4"x8" speaker, so you'll need to purchase a pair for vehicles with two 4"x8" openings.
The right speakers for your vintage vehicle
RetroSound makes it easy to replace the factory speakers in almost any car — classic, vintage, or even brand new. 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.
Designed for a single dash or deck location
The single R-48N 4"x8" speaker is designed for a classic car with only one speaker opening on its dash or rear deck. The woofer features dual voice coils, each one connected to its own tweeter. Your stereo receiver connects to both voice coils, so you get a stereo mix from a single speaker. In effect, you get two 2-way speakers in one frame, for modern sound in your vintage application.
The speaker fits in these vehicles:
- 190C 1962-65
- 190DC 1962-65
- 200 1966-68
- 200D 1966-67

- Chevrolet Chevelle 1966-67 (W/ Air)
Sturdy materials, detailed sound
The R-48N speaker features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel frame that form a strong foundation. The sturdy pulp composite woofer with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The two Mylar dome tweeters broadcast detailed highs without sounding shrill, and their low profile helps increase installation options.
Although efficient enough to play well with any receiver alone, this RetroMod speaker can handle the high power from aftermarket amplifiers. Replace that wornout old 4"x8" with this updated RetroSound, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.
Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.
