Classic old school ghetto blaster

#1
Any one know the name/spec of those big bass, ruggedized old school ghetto blasters. The ones that were big and looked like a mini law 94 tube :?:

My google chi has failed me

Sonny - if you think that is old school, you'll hav no idea what this is:

Sorry fella, was directing my enquiries at the yoof, rather than proper old school

If electric boogaloo and break dancing on cardboard is your thing I think we are the same age :D

Half these fcukers have never seen a stereo you can't fit in your pocket

the one you want is the JVC rv b-90 (like mine) they dont seem to make them in 'rocket tube' green anymore i'm afraid. 'space ship' silver only.

Now that up front big speakered mother is a boom box from the Old Skool. Look into Pioneer and JVC , Sanyo, Sony were going for small in those days.

The above is not a ghetto blaster...It's a chav vessel

This is a ghetto blaster




Thanks to Mr_C_Hinecap

Check out the Spike Lee film "Do the right thing"

The Bloke in the film cuts about with a massive ghetto blaster listening to one song only.

Public Enemy's Fight the power.

See here

Dated, but a good film, and good show of original Ghetto blasters.

I'm feeling really old now. This was the ultimate in portable music when I was a kid:



I actually had to settle for a Linguaphone record player which ran on 8 U2 batteries (they're called D-cell batteries now). It used to manage about 3/4 of an LP before the batteries started going flat.


..... Still got it somewhere....
