Earlier this year, during CES 2012, Behringer built a 700-pound $30,000 iPhone dock that measured 8ft-by-4ft and pumped over 10,000 Watts of power. The dock, dubbed “iNuke Boom,” was only a one-off build, but the company is launching a smaller version of the world’s largest and loudest iPhone dock today with the launch of iNuke BOOM Junior.
The iNuke Boom Junior is a 1:23 scale replica of the 10,000-Watt version unveiled at CES and includes a similar 3-way active speaker design, built-in subwoofer, and wireless remote. The full specs and pricing for the device are below:
- -Indicators: Standby LED indicator, Line-In LED indicator, Aux LED indicator, iPod LED indicator
- -Connectivity: iPod dock, Line In, Aux In (stereo RCA connectors), Video Out (video)
- -iPhone / iPod / iPad compatibility: iPhone 4 / 4S / 3GS / 3G, iPod Touch / Nano / Classic (5th Generation), -iPad 1 / 2* / The New iPad*
- -Batteries (remote control): 1 x CR2025 (included)

The company will sell the dock through Costco for $180 or at various eBay sites currently, but it is also giving away one iNuke Boom Junior each week during October. You can enter to win one here. Unfortunately, this is of course not Lightning connector compatible. Hopefully we’ll see adapters hit the market by Christmas.
We’re excited to reveal the iNuke BOOM Junior: a 1:23 scale model of its powerful predecessor, packed with professional grade components and a 3-way active speaker design. Now, anyone can have the chance to sit back or rock out while enjoying concert quality sound at home with thumping lows, sizzling highs and crystal-clear sound at any level.
“We wanted to shake up the whole i-device docking world with a product that brings home some of the magic of the original 10,000-Watt iNuke BOOM,” says Costa Lakoumentas, BEHRINGER Senior Vice President of Marketing. “If you make a little room for the iNuke BOOM Junior in your home it will pay you back with stunning sound clarity and enough bass to throw a party; or get thrown out of your apartment.”
