New iPod dock sports 10,000 watts of power

It sounds – and looks – like a joke, but audio equipment maker Behringer is serious about its iNuke Boom, a 10,000 watt speaker system for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Yes, that tiny little dot on the top of the speaker dock in the image above is an iPhone or iPod touch, just to give you a sense of scale.

The speaker system measures eight feet wide and four feet tall and weighs over 700 pounds, pumping out 10,000 watts. Behringer plans to unveil the new iPod dock at CES 2012, and it’ll carry a $30,000 price tag. We shudder to think at what shipping will cost on top of that.

Just the thing to really feel the wobble bass in that dubstep playlist on your iPod touch.

  • Marty, I need some table scraps for the ‘Mr. Fusion’ powering this bad boy.

    • 1.21 gigawatts!

      • I doubt it’s so inefficient to require as much current as Dr. Brown’s flux capacitor, but I might believe it, if I were told this idea came from a similar head trauma.

  • ROFL!!

    Boogie wit mah box! Ooh it be really tops! 20,000 D Batterie, Man it really rocks!

    Where was this thing in the 1980s?

  • Ridonculous. Who in their right mind would buy such a thing? I would have wanted to be present during the target group research.

    Hype. Pointless. Specs mean little; what’s it sound like? Oh, yeah, it’s Behringer… and $30,000.00 you’d be throwing down the toilet. Not that I was going to run out and get one, but the hype is only that. Now that they have your attention, look at the other useless crappy sounding products they have now.

    Note to Behringer – It’s a little early for an April Fool’s joke – or late, depending upon how you look at it.
