LAS VEGAS -- Massive Audio, maker of car audio gear, unleashed a full-size Dalek studded with the company's equipment here at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show. The Dalek was built by hand and integrates 40 DX-series speakers and a Bluetooth monitor on the front. The lights flash when it speaks.

Amps behind the Dalek

The back side of Massive Audio's Dalek sports a DBX4 amplifier. It provides a lot of oomph to the 40 speakers on the Dalek's body. The creature was nearly kicked off the CES show floor for being too loud.
