About the RetroSound S-52

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-52 5-1/4" 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.

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, but you can purchase 5-1/4" grilles for custom installations.

These speakers, coupled with the RetroSound S-692s added a new dimension to my 1998 Dodge Ram SST. I simply love the great sounds that these speakers produce.

Pros: Incredible sound.

Cons: Mounting holes did not match exactly to the mounting holes in my truck.

Not as robust sounding as their 6X9 speakers. It did fit the space as advertised.

Pros: Good fit

Cons: A little weak on sound
