Hacker Sound Ltd. was formed after Hacker Radio Ltd. went into receivership and was bought over by Pullmaflex (a Brazilian car seat manufacturer), and then shortly afterwards by Motoradio (a car entertainment manufacturer). It operated for a short time from the old Hacker Radio premises in Maidenhead, but for most of the time it operated from new premises in Bournemouth. Production continued until late 1979 or early 1980 when a fire destroyed the factory. The exact date of this is not known.
