The iHome iP4 is perhaps the most contemporary re-imagining of the classic "ghetto blaster" stereo around. The iHome iP4 is designed to pump out tunes from either your iPhone or iPod and features a contemporary look that helps this retro speaker system fit in perfectly with the 21st century.

The iHome iP4 looks great, but it also has a lot going on underneath the proverbial hood. "The iP4 has a pair of 4″ carbon-composite woofers, and two 1″ ferro-fluid cooled tweeters, powered by a class D amp. It’s also got a 5-band graphic equalizer with an LCD screen, and an FM radio too." Perhaps the greatest feature of the iHome iP4 is that it is mobile and can be powered with six D batteries. The iHome iP4 costs $199 and is available from iHome's online store. Stats for Contemporary Ghetto Blasters Trending: Older & Warm
