The most shameful part of Behringer’s iNuke Boom press release is that it shows the huge iPhone dock out of context, with almost no sense of scale. To really understand just how big is is this speaker you need to see it alongside people.
But if you squint just so, you can make out the speck that sits on top of this 8 x 4-foot monster. That tiny dot is an iPhone.
Sold under its new Eurosound brand, the high-end speaker is huge in every way. The box weighs in at a mosh-pit-crushing 700 pounds, or 318 kilos, and pumps out a deafening 10,000 watts. That’s enough to annoy your neighbors’ neighbors.
Even the price is ridiculous, with an MSRP of $30,000.
It’s hard to see the point. This kind of speaker is more suited to a live gig than a house party. And if you’re planning on kitting out a nightclub, the last thing you want is to pop your iPhone in the top of the speaker. What if somebody calls?
The iNuke is theoretically available now, but doesn’t yet appear outside the news section on the Behringer site.
