RetroMod™ 6"x9" 3-way car speakers
Our take on the Retrosound R-693 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 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-693 6"x9" speaker features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel chrome frame that form a strong foundation. The stiff polypropylene woofer cone with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to heat and humidity. The Mylar dome tweeter and midrange driver broadcast detailed highs and mids without sounding shrill. The tweeter assembly's low profile allows this speaker to fit behind more factory grilles.
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. Car makers put paper cone 6"x9" speakers on the rear decks of many older vehicles. Replace them with these up-to-date Retrosounds, and your tunes will sound new again, just like your classic ride.
Priced per pair
These speakers were the exact match to the power output of my new Alpine Head Unit. The reviews were a deciding factor in purchasing this set of speakers. I was not disappointed.

These speakers from Retrosound make it a lot easier to enjoy modern stereo sound in a pre-1960s vintage car or truck.
