5"x7" 3-way speakers
Item # 068R573N | MFR # R-573N
Our take on the RetroSound R-573N by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
A vintage fit
Some cars make it tough to replace your speakers, but RetroSound designed the RetroMod® Series R-573N 5"x7" speakers to fit in just about any vehicle. These speakers use a compact, powerful neodymium magnet structure to keep mounting depth to an amazing 1.56 inches, while still allowing these speakers to handle plenty of power — up to 60 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 two Mylar tweeters. 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.
I have yet to install them because they came from the manufactures location and took a few more days to get to me but as soon as the weather breaks I will get right to it.

Woofer: The speakers feature efficient paper cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds.
Tweeters: Each speaker has dual low profile Mylar dome tweeters.
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.
