  • Get A 700 Pound Speaker With iPhone Dock

    The iNuke Boom is a 700-pound speaker for the iPhone.

    Is that dinky little speaker in the bottom right of your iPhone just not bringing you enough sound at work? I think we've found the solution for you. The item is called the iNuke Boom, and it's a 700 pound speaker with an iPhone dock on the top that will increase your volume by hundreds of times. The speaker is made by BEHRINGER and as Cult of Mac reports, measures in at 8 feet wide and 4 feet tall, outputs 10,000 watts of sound, and costs $29,999.99. That's about the size of two average twin beds stacked on top of each other; all for your iPhone.

    The speaker will work with the iPhone and likely the iPod touch as well as the speaker is connected via 30-pin connector. The iPad would be too large to fit into the dock. The company promises that the BEHRINGER iNuke Boom will be introduced at CES 2012.

    It's typical thinking that the average person would find purchasing something like this to be both outrageous and unheard of. In the eyes of some random connoisseur out there you know that someone, somewhere will buy this thing. It won't fit in any car that I know of, but it might make a cool edition to your living room in replacement of your large reclining sofa. The iNuke Boom with that size would pack much clearer sound quality than the mobile speaker in the iPhone. A speaker this large will obviously require a lot of arbitrary wiring and if you're planning on using it in your house, it might not be a great upstairs object due to its weight. Additionally, this kind of noise will probably attract the police if your fellow neighbors hate to be irritated by loud sounds.

    What is your opinion on the iNuke Boom? Share in the comments below!

      This seems like a gag item, but at THAT price tag it can't be.

      Seriously... where does one put this? What sort of room do you use it in? Why would you not spend $30k on a stellar surround sound system? I just cannot imagine who this is marketed for. Maybe rich rock stars that have way too much cash to burn even though the music industry is somehow hurting as a result of piracy...

      $30000 can get me a top notch turntable, cartridge, pre-amp, a better set of speakers than the crap in this thing, AND a decent record collection.
      hmmm seeing as how you've never seen, heard, or even know what exactly is inside that enclosure, you really can't just go off and call it crap. How about you wait until it's actually released and people have seen and heard it before you pass judgement.

      You know what, you're right, you do have a point. I shouldn't say anything regarding it's performance until I can actually experience. However, being extremely familiar with the state of modern electronics and high-end audio, I am willing to bet large amounts of money that the components in this thing will perform closer to an oversized $100 sound system rather than a $30000 one, or even a $3000 system. I can already tell just based on the photo that the soundstage imaging will be subpar, but that isn't really what they're trying to achieve if they're marketing this as a component in a PA system.

      The high price is a direct result of the fact that they are not mass producing these, in case anyone was wondering.

      This looked cool till I saw BEHRINGER on the side of it. I think its cute that a company that makes cheap crap audio gear has the nerve to create a speaker as big as this and charge that much. I'd pay about $250 for that thing and it better come w/ a warranty.

      I couldn't agree with you more on that one. It has to be for something other than just music. Also if it put out quite a beat don't you think it would vibrate the iPhone out of the dock? Perhaps even damage the iPhone due to extreme vibrations? (That's why I'm thinking it's not for music.)
