Behringer is on hand at CES 2012, displaying its enormous iNuke Boom iPhone speaker dock that was announced last month. The over-the-top accessory is 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall and weighs over 700 pounds. Billed as the loudest iPhone speaker dock, the 10,000-watt speaker can indeed put out overwhelming sound.

A dock with a 30-pin connector on the top allows direct connection of an iPhone or iPod touch. The speaker also has Bluetooth to play audio wirelessly from an iPhone, iPod touch or other device.

The iNuke requires so much electricity to run that its power switch is designed to power it on in stages to avoid blowing the fuse of the outlet that it's connected to. This short video recorded by Behringer shows the power switch on the back of the speaker along with the volume control and the iNuke Mode switch that boosts output.


Priced at $29,999, the iNuke is out of reach for the average consumer. However, the high price tag at least includes a white glove delivery service for placement and set-up in your home.

The iNuke is in production now and will be available for purchase in the 3rd quarter of 2012.

Cool. I was looking for a nice speaker capable of filling a medium-sized room.

To who, where and in what environment? I don't see any situation in which it makes any sense to install this instead of a higher quality PA system for the same price, even if it looks totally rad.

I do not have the answers to those questions. All I know is that if I was the son of a billionaire and I was throwing a pool party for my closest 300 friends, I would not make my personal foot stamper stop stamping his feet until the iNuke was mine.

The problem with this lies in the brand being Behringer. :(

This is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. The company probably has no intention of actually selling any of these. They'll take this around to trade shows as a way of getting people's attention and checking out their booth. By putting an outrageous price tag on it, it’s guaranteed to get press attention. It’s pretty brilliant, actually.
