Here’s a pretty rare boombox. It’s the Williamsons AIE-2000 Enviro Stereo and I would guess you probably haven’t seen one before. While it may be lacking a little in the style department it does have one feature that sets it apart from other boxes. It has seven speakers. Yes, 7. It has four speakers on the front including a couple supertweeters, a speaker on each side and a large 6 x 9 bass speaker in the back. It was made around 1985 in Hong Kong and was probably never sold in the U.S.
It does have a Line In if you want to run your MP3 player through it and it also features:
- 3 way operation – AC, DC 12v or batteries
- 7 speakers
- 13.5 Watt RMS
- Direct radio-to-tape recording
- 2 electret condenser microphones
- Auto shut-off
- Sleep timer
- 2 4-way VU meters
- ALC and variable sound monitor
- 6 wave bands
- Bass + Treble controls
- Mic mixing
- AC bias
- AC erase
Here you can see the large 6 x 9 inch bass woofer that is in the rear of the boombox.
It has nice looking toggle switches and an “Enviro” switch which probably attempts to produce a fuller surround type of sound or wide sound.
The Williamsons AIE-2000 measures 19.3 x 10.6 x 5.9 inches and weighs in at just over 16 pounds.
As you can also see it has two mic inputs, a remote input and a line in. You can see the large bass speaker silhouette on the back of the boombox grill.
This particular box was sold in October of 2013 for $350.00 and had quite a number of bids so it seems to be pretty desirable amongst collectors. The unit was sold on eBay by dimbulb00 who sells quite a few boomboxes. You can check to see if he has other boomboxes for sale HERE.
