Boomboxes and Ghettoblasters of the 1980's and 1970's


Blaupunkt GmbH is a German manufacturer of electronics equipment, noted for its home and car audio equipment.

It was a 100% subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH until December 18th, 2008 when it was sold to Aurelius AG of Germany for an undisclosed amount.

Founded in 1923 in Berlin as "Ideal", the company changed its name to "Blaupunkt" in 1938, German for "blue point" or "blue dot" after the blue dot painted onto its headphones that had passed quality control. After the Second World War, Blaupunkt moved its headquarters and production to the city of Hildesheim. Today the majority of Blaupunkt products are manufactured overseas, with large manufacturing centers in Tunisia (speakers) and Malaysia (speakers and electronics).

During the 1960 and 1970s, Blaupunkt had become the leading German manufacturer for car radios and car audio equipment
