While the 2020 SEMA Show wasn’t able to fill the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center as it normally does, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the show is indeed going on virtually in the new SEMA360 format. That means we’re currently being treated to a slew of cool builds and interesting new parts and accessories, which includes the new Detroit Motor 4HD Radio from RetroSound.
Like its many other offerings, the Detroit Motor 4HD radio is designed to match the 1964-1966 Ford Mustang, Ford Falcon, and Ford Ranchero’s interior styling. This new offering comes with an updated HD tuner, Bluetooth 5.0, an LCD with adjustable display color, non-volatile memory, and two 2.1 amp inputs for fast phone charging. The retail price of the new/old radio is $379.99.
The Detroit Motor 4HD radio is the latest in a long line of original-look stereos from RetroSound that feature all of the latest technology present in modern day vehicle head units. Bluetooth capability allows users to make hands-free phone calls and stream audio wirelessly, while the display itself can be customized using its 32,000 color display to match a vehicle’s interior perfectly.
Meanwhile, a rear-mounted USB port can hold a flash drive or be used to plug in phones, as well as two standard auxiliary inputs for fast charging. The Detroit has a built-in 25 watts x 4 channel power RMS MOSFET amplifier as well as front and rear RCA pre-outs, to add external amplifiers. It mounts seamlessly into the dash as well, with no additional faceplates or bezels needed.
All of this cool tech is packaged in a radio that many might think is original to a classic car at first glance. Aside from being designed to fit perfectly in the dash, the 4HD radio has push button styling for an authentic look, yet can even receive Sirius XM satellite radio when paired with an optional tuner.
