SEMA 2017: Retrosound Puts Modern Music In Your Classic

Let’s face it, adding a DIN-style radio to a classic requires hacking the dash. Many people don’t want to do that, and we all love the look of a classic two-knob style radio in a classic car. Now, thanks to Retrosound, we can have all the modern qualities of 21st century sound system that appears to be a stock, AM radio. The vintage radios that came in most of our classic cars were great for their day, but compared to even the cheapest of today’s radios, they aren’t even close. Not only that, but there is almost nothing left still broadcasting on the AM band, so even if you think the radio sounds fine, there is seldom anything to listen to.

Retrosound has put an end to this unfortunate ailment among classic cars, as they manufacture radios that look factory correct, but are able to bring modern sound quality and functionality into your classic car! You can get a radio from them that is iPod and Android enabled, SiriusXM compatible, and even have hands-free calling. They also come with decals for the face plate that help them mimic the stock look.

They make direct-fit radios for almost any application, and their universal sets will go anywhere. Above you can see them installed in the dash of different year Chevelles. The knob position in relation to the face is totally adjustable, so whether you have a standard or a funky dash, these things will work for you. We know from experience that they sound great, so you won’t regret getting one.
