Boombox is a common term for a portable cassette or CD player with two or more loudspeakers and a carrying handle. Other terms known are ghetto blaster, jambox, boomblaster, Brixton briefcase, radio-cassette. It is a device capable of receiving radio stations and playing recorded music, usually at relatively high volume.

Many models are also capable of recording from radio and other sources. Designed for portability, boomboxes can be powered by batteries, as well as by line current.

The boombox was introduced to the American market during the mid-1970s. The desire for louder and heavier bass led to bigger and heavier boxes; by the 1980s some boomboxes had reached the size of a suitcase. Most boomboxes were battery-operated, leading to extremely heavy, bulky boxes.
