Overview

Our take on the RetroSound VW Dash Speaker

Old Volkswagens are cool vehicles, but they weren't designed for great sound — and it's particularly hard to find a good spot for aftermarket speakers. But now RetroSound offers a neat solution — a 6-3/4" dual voice coil speaker that installs in the existing 5" opening on the driver's side of your dash.

RetroSound VW Dash Speaker

Your vintage VW solution

Old Volkswagens are cool vehicles, but they weren't designed for great sound — and it's particularly hard to find a good spot for aftermarket speakers. But now RetroSound offers a neat solution — a 6-3/4" dual voice coil speaker that installs in the existing 5" opening on the driver's side of your dash.

Dual voice coil and a bracket

The package includes a single RetroSound R-65N 6-3/4" speaker and a mounting bracket. The woofer's dual voice coils and dual tweeters allow you to hook up both channels of your car radio, so you'll hear the left and right stereo information. This speaker will work well with a factory or aftermarket radio, but it'll handle up to 50 watts RMS so you can drive it with an outboard amplifier. The speaker will fit in 1958-77 Volkswagens.

I cannot believe the sound of the speaker you can turn the radio up loud without any distortion this is got to be the best single speaker to replace your stock speaker VW Bug unbelievable sound

Features

VW Bracket: The VWMSB6 package includes RetroSound's R-65N 6-3/4" dual voice coil stereo input speaker and VWMSB mono speaker bracket. The VWMSB is designed to mount the R-65N in the single speaker dash location in 1958 to 1977 Volkswagen Beetles.

Note: Please enter your vehicle information to confirm compatibility. A note on the VWMSB bag warns against using the included screws to mount the bracket to the Volkswagen dash; they are too long and will damage the speaker.

Woofer: The speaker features a rigid pulp composite cone woofer with a Santoprene surround. The woofer uses a Neodymium magnet to achieve its shallow depth, so it fits in tight factory locations.

Tweeters: Two Mylar tweeters are wired separately so this single speaker will accept a stereo input.

Dual Voice Coils: The woofer has dual voice coils, each wired with one of the tweeters. The stereo input is useful in older vehicles with a single speaker location in the dash or rear deck.
