You're a high-end audio equipment manufacturer, and you want to finally make a splash in the iPod touch/iPhone world. So what do you do to get the attention of customers who are bored with traditional iPhone docks? You create a huge 4-foot tall by 8-foot wide, 10,000-Watt iPhone/iPad dock called the iNuke Boom. Then you sell it for US$29,999.99.

Behringer has been making pro audio equipment for 20 years, ever since founder Uli Behringer started the company on his kitchen table. The company has decided to enter the consumer audio market with 50 new products under the Eurosound brand, and to celebrate they're going to show off the huge iPhone/iPad dock at CES 2012.

In case you're thinking about putting one of these in your house, note that you'll probably need special electrical wiring and a floor that will support a 700 pound speaker. You may also want to clear this with your neighbors before you decide to turn the volume to 11 and hit the shuffle button on the Music app.
