About the RetroSound S-42

New school speakers for an old school ride

For most classic car owners, authenticity matters. Good thing RetroSound knows 20th century rides so well — their S-42 4" speakers are an ideal fit for select vintage cars. Each speaker uses a polypropylene woofer with a treated foam surround for accurate playback and durability in the face of the extreme temperature swings in your car, along with a Mylar tweeter that adds clean, crisp highs. Grilles are not included, but Retrosound offers optional grilles for custom installations.

New school speakers for an old school ride

For most classic car owners, authenticity matters. Good thing RetroSound knows 20th century rides so well — their S-42 4" speakers are an ideal fit for select vintage cars. Each speaker uses a polypropylene woofer with a treated foam surround for accurate playback and durability in the face of the extreme temperature swings in your car, along with a Mylar tweeter that adds clean, crisp highs. Grilles are not included, but Retrosound offers optional grilles for custom installations.

With power handling up to 25 watts RMS, you'll get satisfying performance from these speakers whether you're powering them with a factory radio or an outboard amplifier. Use them to customize a classic vehicle or to upgrade the sound in a newer car — either way these RetroSound speakers fit the bill.

Grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

RetroSound S-42

Blew out almost instantly. Truth be told, I wasn't careful about checking wattage/power. The instructions were very valuable for replacing these speakers with the pioneer types that were originally in my truck.

Features

4/2 Hole Compatibility: Most 4" factory speakers use four mounting screws, however, in some vehicles, only two are used. The S-42's mounting tabs can be removed, allowing installation in 4-hole or 2-hole applications. Care should be taken handling the speaker after any tabs are removed because the broken edges may be sharp. Please enter your vehicle information to confirm fit.
