About WikiBoombox

Mission Statement:

The WikiBoombox mission is to serve as a data repository archive of boombox and portable audio equipment related information. It is published by a boombox collector hobbyist.

Site goals include:

  • Promote boombox collecting as hobby
  • Promote preservation and restoration of boomboxes
  • Increase knowledge and awareness of boomboxes
  • Document any known history of boomboxes
  • Document specifications of boomboxes and personal audio devices (walkmans, etc)

How to use this site:

The heart of this webiste is the wiki. We will list the known manufacturers. Each manufacturer that has more than 1 known model will have it's own wiki page, and those models are listed on that page. Each model shown that has a page will have a link. The path to get to a specific model page is generally as follows:

  • Home -> Manufacturers -> Brand -> Model page.
  • Home -> Search -> Search Result.

Features of this website are:

  • Wiki pages for each Brand or manufacturers that sold models.
  • Image gallery
  • Articles for more artistic pages that have content beyond what is featured on a wiki page.
  • A search feature to search within WikiBoombox.
  • An internal PM (private message) system for registered users.
  • Favorites and watch features for registered users.
  • User customizable theme to change the look and feel of WikiBoombox.

Current Status:

  • After a growth spurt, our developement has slowed down a lot. Nevertheless, new entries are still being added all the time. We are still growing, just not at the pace we initially did. This is to be expected since contributions to this site is largely volunteer based and time is contributed as available. Web traffic to WikiBoombox has exceeded expectations and we are proud that we are able to provide information to as many visitors as we do. If you visit daily, you might not see new additions from one day to the next. However, if you haven't been here in awhile, there's a good chance that there have been new additions since your last visit. If you are a registered user, you may see a box on the left sidebar titled "What's New." That's where you'll see what has changed since your last visit. If you'd like to contribute to the WikiBoombox in some way, whether time, or content, or financial, please contact the administrator.
