Bothell, WA – December 7, 2011 – BEHRINGER, award-winning innovator of affordable professional audio and music equipment, is excited to announce the launch of the EUROSOUND consumer electronics brand — concert quality sound at an amazing value. To celebrate the launch of 50 new consumer audio products, BEHRINGER will unveil the iNuke Boom, the loudest iPad®, iPod® and iPhone® dock you’ve ever heard at CES 2012. The $29,999.99 (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) monster speaker system measures a whopping 8 feet wide by 4 feet tall, weighs over 700 pounds and pumps out over 10,000 Watts of power.

The EUROSOUND line fully embraces a modern, European design while remaining true to BEHRINGER’s roots in professional audio engineering. Four distinct product lines will be marketed under the EUROSOUND name. The Home line brings a professional, live concert sound from the stage into the comfort of your home. EUROSOUND Live products amplify your sound. EUROSOUND Portable products deliver a mobile audio experience anytime, anywhere, while the Creation line proves you don’t have to be a professional musician to make great music.

The underlying quality in all EUROSOUND products is a commitment to delivering high performance audio at an incredible value, something BEHRINGER has been providing to musicians and audio professionals since the company’s inception more than twenty years ago. The BEHRINGER mantra “Double the Features at Half the Price” will also translate to the EUROSOUND products.

“When I started BEHRINGER 22 years ago my goal was to provide musicians with high quality equipment at an affordable price,” said Uli Behringer, founder and CEO of Music Group LLC. “With the launch of EUROSOUND we are challenging ourselves to share the incredible sound and quality we have worked to so hard to craft over the last two decades with all music and audio enthusiasts.”

    I’d put that in the back of my Honda CRX.

    Hope its got Bluetooth cus that suckers gonna rattle hard enough to break your dock connector for sure…

    @readers:disqus my best friend’s aunt makes $87 an hour on the computer. and last month her pay was $7299 , she is one of many  learned Kelly Richard’s methods in “Online income solutions”… —-MakeCash1.COM—–

    That must be some shoehorn you have… or a huge CRX!  :)

    23 seconds after max power. Hydro bill = $2100 :P

    C’mon, folks!  Really?  Assuming these speakers have 8 ohm input impedance, that implies 35 ampere current.  

    You could heat a small house with that power.  Somehow, we have lost sight of the fact that power does not equal fidelity in any meaningful sense.  We’re also playing the specsmanship game here – if we are talking the power that a speaker can sink from an amplifier, we have a meaningless specification here, which in no way represents the power that can be sourced continually from the amplifier.

    With medium efficiency speakers, very low wattage can produce ear-damaging acoustic levels.  While it is argued that the more power one has in reserve of chosen listening levels, the better the amplifier can reproduce sharp acoustic attacks and decays.  However, at less than a 10X ratio of reserve power to ambient power level, distortion of attack/decay is virtually unmeasurable, much less detectable by the human ear.

    Huh. And it’s not even April.

  • Romano Pfefferkorn

    its a joke, ofc… some viral advertising from the manufacturer i guess

    First of all, it’s Behringer. They tend to “amplify” their power ratings about about 4x, so what it probably produces is equivalent to 2,500W.

    To wilburg — Yes, some amps really can produce 10,000 W power from a 20-amp circuit. The trick is that they can’t do it continuously. I have several Crown ITech 8000 amps in my concert rig that put out 8,000 watts (4,000/channel). However, they’ll only do that for about 20 ms. Sufficient for a kick drum hit, but not much beyond that. This isn’t a big deal, most music at a loud concert is measure in 100s, not 1000s of watts (my current system is 72,000 watts and I probably use less than 10% of this at any given moment). Only the transient peaks (such as the kick drum hit) need the extra power and the capacitance in the power supply can provide that peak power.

    That said, the Behringer unit will *not* deliver 10,000 watts (or anything close to it). It’s all marketing hype.

    Also, having the typical Behringer quality control, you can expect the device to fail long before the warranty period expires (if it’s not DOA); I’d be surprised if their unit makes it through the show without some sort of failure. Behringer’s reliability (or lack thereof) is renown.

    [BEHRINGER, a division of MUSIC Group, was founded in 1989 by Uli Behringer under the mantra “Double the Features at Half the Price”.] They left out “At 1/4 the reliability.”

    Behringer’s speakers also leave quite a bit to be desired with respect to fidelity.

    Of course, this also begs the question of “who would want to listen to the typical compressed music you’d find on an iPod through a powerful sound system. Unless it’s lossless encoding, it’s going to sound like crap.

    OTOH, this product is a smashing success and has already achieved everything Behringer wanted for it — it’s a marketing device to raise consumer’s awareness. No one would actually buy this piece of junk, but it’s got all the boards talking about it. Bravo Behringer!
