RetroMod™ 6-3/4" 2-way car speakers
Item # 068R652N | MFR # R-652N
Our take on the RetroSound R-652N by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
A vintage fit
RetroSound makes it easy to replace the factory speakers in almost any classic, vintage, or even new car. Their RetroMod Series speakers feature extremely shallow chrome baskets designed to fit into a wide variety of standard speaker locations. They may look old school, but RetroSound builds their speakers from the ground up, using the latest techniques and materials.
Each R-652N 6-3/4" speaker features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel chrome frame that form a strong foundation. The sturdy pulp composite woofer with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The Mylar dome tweeter broadcasts detailed highs without sounding shrill, and its low profile helps increase installation options.
Although efficient enough to play well with any receiver alone, these RetroMod speakers can handle the high power from aftermarket amplifiers to deliver your music with plenty of impact. 6-3/4" speakers first appeared in the doors or rear deck of many 80's vehicles. Replace them with these up-to-date RetroSounds, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.
Free speaker grilles
You'll get a free pair of matching speaker grilles (a $20 value) when you purchase these R-652N RetroMod™ 6-3/4" 2-way car speakers.
Note: RetroSound describes this model as a 6-1/2" speaker. Most manufacturers designate this same frame size as a 6-3/4" speaker. For simplicity's sake, we list it as a 6-3/4" speaker.

by Charlie Pastorfield
These speakers from Retrosound make it a lot easier to enjoy modern stereo sound in a pre-1960s vintage car or truck.
1 question already asked
These are not component speakers; they are full-range (2-way) models and do not have external crossovers. I hope that helps. My Bio: https://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=5 [ Ryan Mar 03, 2017 ] Staff
