About the RetroSound R-525N

A vintage fit

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-525N 5-1/4" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an amazing 1-1/2 inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 40 watts RMS. They'll deliver strong performance powered by a car stereo or an outboard amplifier.

A vintage fit

Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-525N 5-1/4" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an amazing 1-1/2 inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 40 watts RMS. They'll deliver strong performance powered by a car stereo or an outboard amplifier.

RetroSound builds each speaker around a low-carbon, black steel basket, using a treated paper woofer cone, a Santoprene™ rubber surround, and a Mylar tweeter. Translation? These speakers will stand the test of time in your vehicle, shrugging off damage from moisture or temperature extremes. Whether you're customizing an older vehicle or just looking for some nice replacements, these RetroSound speakers will fit the bill.

Product Research

Features

Woofer: The speakers feature rigid pulp composite cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds.

Tweeters: The tweeters are low profile Mylar domes.

Neodymium Magnets: The N series speakers feature neodymium magnets. Because neodymium produces a much stronger magnetic field than ferrite (of the same size), the magnet size and mounting depth are substantially reduced.
