iNuke Boom world’s loudest iPod dock $29,999

Are you looking for an iPod dock, a very big iPod dock, a very big and loud iPod Dock? If you do you’ll have to wait for CES 2012 in January, when Behringer will unveil iNuke Boom, an iPod and iPhone dock, that scream out 10,000 watts of power. I’m sure; you’ll swear that it was on steroids.

Now it’s no small slouch, it’s 4 feet tall and 8 feet wide. It’s a monster, tipping the scale at 700 pounds. It’ll also come with a price tag a little heftier than your average iPod dock, but iNuke Boom is in no way average.  How could it be average with a name like that?

Manufacturer’s suggested retail price will be $29,999. Better make sure you up your limit on those platinum credit cards.

There were no “system requirements” provided at this time, except that it is a dock for iPhone/iPod. Nonetheless, I’ll bet you’ll need plan ahead if you want one of these in your home. Pumping out 10,000 watts will certainly require some serious power considerations and it may take more than just plugging it into the wall. Likely, you won’t be able to just drop it on your living room floor next to the TV. You’ll probably a cement floor or a structure that can support 700 pounds and not resonate like a tuning fork.

Nevertheless, despite all that, I’m sure the sound will be sweet!

Behringer has been a household name in the music business for over 20 years and they are moving into the consumer electronics field by introducing 50 new products under a new sub-brand called EUROSOUND. iNuke Boom is being introduced to celebrate the new venture.

    10, 000 watts is not that much, the average draw would be 10th of that or less.

    Also, you could get this for 20% of quoted cost using other PA gear. It should also be noted that Behringer is well know for releasing product info, and never making the product. The X32 still doesn’t exist, and it was “released” 2 years ago.

    This is all made up. Any one with a brain knows you could buy other equipment and get more output for a lot cheaper than this joke. Stupid people.

    Thanks for the heads up Kevin, good know!

    I agree on your take on the wattage – however, it’s pretty massive for a dock!

    Thanks for your comment Johnson! I don’t think it’s made up. I did get the company’s official press release and information directly from Behringer’s PR FIRM. Granted you can likely “power up” for less, but I guess the value is in the design, or in the eyes of the beholder.

    I still think it’s cool! :)

    I could bring it to our concerts in the park during our summer months. probably blow the roofs off nearby homes. May need wheels on it, though…
