Designed and tooled from the ground up, the Retrosound® RetroMod® series of speakers meet the demand of today's high performance amplifiers while maintaining factory dimensions for original location mounting and are compatible with all digital music sources. The "N" Series features ultra thin 1.77" mounting profiles to fit in virtually any installation application. This speaker features neodymium magnet structures which are 5 times more powerful than standard speaker magnets, allowing for a substantial reduction in mounting depth and feature enhanced power handling and heat dissipation characteristics.

The Dual Voice Coil design allows you to connect 2 stereo channels from your radio to one speaker, providing you with maximum sound for a single speaker application! These types of speakers are generally used in "Classic" cars that only have one speaker location in the dash or the rear deck area, being able to connect 2 stereo channels to one speaker provides for a fuller, richer sound that a mono or single voice coil speaker cannot provide.

This 4x8" speaker does not have a grill and is designed and sized to fit in an OEM location, due to its ultra thin mounting profile, you can mount it places other speakers cannot fit. Please note that you are purchasing ONE 4 x 8" Dual Voice Coil speaker, which is a full range speaker with a flush mount 2 way dual Mylar tweeter assembly, Dual Voice coil system, rigid pulp composite cone, Santoprene surround, 1.37" ultra thin mounting depth and custom tooled low carbon steel black basket. (NOTE: these and other modern speakers are generally not for use with original radios unless they can handle 4 or 8 ohm impedance loads)

Power Handling Specs: (60 Watts RMS, 120 Watts Max Power)
The new RetroSound® RetroMod® R-48N dual voice coil speaker is the perfect stereo solution to the single dash speaker in many vintage vehicles. These speakers are a direct-fit drop-in solution for Mercedes, International and some GM vehicles (see list below).
