Enormous iPod dock weighs in at 900 pounds

The iNuke from Behringer has dual 18-inch subwooofers at 3,000 watts each

For audiophiles with an extra US$30,000 a new iPod dock pumps out so much bass it’ll make your insides shake.

Launched at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show, the iNuke from Behringer measures a massive 8 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet and weighs 900 pounds, or about 408 kilograms.

The iNuke has dual 18-inch subwoofers at 3,000 watts each. “You can run this thing off two 15-amp residential circuits,” said Costa Lakoumentas with Behringer.

To avoid blowing a fuse, when the iNuke is turned on it powers up the components in a sequence. There’s also a switch on the back of the unit to add 12 decibels of extra power.

Lakoumentas said there are “a couple” of pre-orders for the massive unit, despite its high price.

“It’s not for everybody,” he said. “But for someone who has the space and is willing to invest, they get a sound system that is equivalent to anything at the finest club or concert.”

For those not looking to spend the cash, Behringer has made a much smaller dock that retails for US$99.
