Overview

Our take on the RetroSound VWKPBC Kick Panel Enclosures

Old VW Beetle convertibles are cool vehicles but they weren't designed for great sound. It's particularly hard to find a good spot for aftermarket speakers, but now RetroSound offers a neat solution — install their VWKPBC enclosures in your Beetle's kick panels and start rocking out.

Old VW Beetle convertibles are cool vehicles but they weren't designed for great sound. It's particularly hard to find a good spot for aftermarket speakers, but now RetroSound offers a neat solution — install their VWKPBC enclosures in your Beetle's kick panels and start rocking out.

Great sound in a bug

The package includes two ABS plastic enclosures and a set of RetroSound's R-652N 6-3/4" speakers. Each enclosure holds a RetroSound speaker, angled up toward your ears to create a more powerful stereo image. These speakers will work well with a factory or aftermarket radio, but they handle up to 50 watts RMS so they'll be very happy with an outboard amplifier.

Compact, paintable enclosures

The R652N speakers have a mounting depth of less than 1-3/4", so these enclosures don't take up a lot of space. You can paint the enclosures to match your VW's interior, and each enclosure already has a cutout for the RetroSound speaker, so they'll just pop right in. These enclosures fit in 1956-70 Beetle convertibles; they will not work in hardtop Beetles or Super Beetles.

Fit Well and Looks Great but we covered the kick panel with carpet that matched the rest of the car.

The diameter of the pre-cut openings in the brackets matches the included 6-3/4" speakers and they can be painted to match your interior.

Note: These kick panels will only work with select VW Beetle Convertibles; please enter your vehicle information to confirm compatibility.

Woofer: The speakers feature rigid pulp composite cone woofers with Santoprene surrounds. The woofers use Neodymium magnets to achieve their shallow depth.
