Not a lot of people know this, but:

Although the classic Turbo systems were in the standard Turbo Blue, which was part of the marketing concept, the factory actually made some in black.

They were for export only and to special order, and it was done at the request of some major customers in the USA who insisted on an industry-standard black finish. Production managers, of course, liked everything in black for low visibility.

This was kept very quiet - Turbosound didn't want to lose their trademark blue colour as it provided instant recognition when their systems were seen in use, an excellent way of promoting the brand. Normally any request for an alternative colour was met with  "sorry, but we can't do that".

So black is a legitimate colour for Turbo boxes although if you want the classic look, blue is the way to go!
