Our take on the RetroSound R-C652N

RetroSound makes it easy to replace the factory speakers in almost any car — classic, vintage, or even brand new. 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.

Retrosound R-C652N

The right speakers for your vintage vehicle

RetroSound makes it easy to replace the factory speakers in almost any car — classic, vintage, or even brand new. 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.

Sturdy materials, detailed sound

Each R-C652N 6-3/4" woofer features a powerful neodymium magnet and a low-carbon steel frame that form a strong foundation. The rigid polypropylene cone with its Santoprene surround delivers powerful performance while standing up to moisture and humidity. The separate silk dome tweeter broadcasts detailed highs without sounding shrill, and it comes with flush or surface mounting options. The water-resistant external crossover keeps any moisture in your doors away from its sensitive electronics. 

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 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.

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.

Installation note: In many cases, you'll need a pair of our universal backstraps to install the tweeters.

Features

Water Resistant: The woofers, tweeters, and crossovers are water resistant, so they can be installed in doors, kick panels, and any other area that might be susceptible to leaks.

Woofer Mounting: Although these speakers are marketed as 6-1/2", they will not fit in standard 6-1/2" speaker openings (approximately 5" diameter). Crutchfield has traditionally referred to this size speaker as a 6-3/4" (approximately 5-5/8" diameter cutout required).

Tweeter Mounting: The tweeters can be surface or flush mounted using the included housings. In either housing the tweeter's mounting angle is adjustable to improve imaging.

Mounting Dimensions:

  Surface Mount Flush Mount
Mounting Height 1.657" 0.326"
Depth 0.5" (screw depth) 0.77"
Frame Diameter N/A 2.116"
Cutout Diameter N/A 1.825"
Frame Width 1.812" N/A
Frame Length 1.823" N/A

Crossovers: The crossovers' input and output wires are attached. The 18" woofer output wires are terminated with female quick slides that plug directly onto the woofer terminals. The 18" tweeter output wires are terminated with bullet connectors that mate with the wire attached to the tweeters. The 16" input wires are terminated with 0.25" male quick slides. The crossovers have three tweeter output level options, -6 dB, -3 dB, and 0 dB (flat). The crossovers also have an electronic tweeter protection circuit to minimize the possibility of failure.

Crossover Dimensions:

  • Width: 3-5/8"
  • Height: 1-1/2"
  • Depth: 3-1/4"

The actual physical tweeter size isn't provided, but when using the included surface-mount housings, the tweeters have a 1.812" diameter; and when using the flush-mount housings the diameter is 2.116". I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159 [ Larry  Mar 07, 2016 ]  Staff
