About the RetroSound VW-B62 Dash Speaker
Important Note: This is a single 6-1/2" speaker, so you'll need to purchase a pair for vehicles with two 6-1/2" openings.
Designed with your classic VW Beetle in mind
RetroSound is always looking for seamless ways to retrofit new audio technology into a vintage setting. This single VW-B62 6-1/2" speaker is designed to fit in the dash or rear deck of select 1958-77 VW Beetle models. The woofer features dual voice coils, each one connected to its own tweeter, so, when properly connected to your receiver, you'll hear a full stereo mix from this one speaker.
Modern materials for better sound
The VW-B62 speaker features a sturdy pulp composite woofer and a foam surround that delivers accurate performance while standing up to extreme temperature swings in your car. The speaker's dipcut backplate allows extended excursion for satisfying punch in the lower midrange. And the two Mylar dome tweeters broadcast crisp, detailed highs. Finally, you'll be able to enjoy rich sound in your old gem without altering the classic look you love so much.

RetroSound VW-B62 Dash Speaker reviews
For me, this speaker is 0 stars because I cannot get it to fit into my 1972 VW Standard Beetle. In the 1972 Standard Beetle, all of the wiring, including the fuse box/relay is right behind where the dash speaker is supposed to go. It took me all day, moving and removing the wiring and fuse box, to get the speaker installed into the dash. But, I couldn't get the wiring and fuse box/relay back into place after I got this speaker installed. It looks like I need at least another inch or inch-and-a-half more space behind the speaker in order to put all of the wiring back in place (i.e., a shorter speaker and bracket). I think Crutchfield and Retro Manufacturing should stipulate that this speaker will not fit a 1972 Standard Beetle because of wiring issues.
Pros: Appears to be a very nice speaker.
Cons: Speaker does not fit into my 1972 Standard Beetle

This speaker fit the space and mounting bracket in the VW exactly. Easy to install, made well and worked better than original. At the price this is very good value.
