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.

Watch a video on YouTube to see the iNuke in action.

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.

Lakomentas said there are "a couple" of preorders 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 $99.

CES runs until January 13.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
