    I currently own a Iphone 3GS. I went to best buy and tried out some dock units ( about 90% of them worked with the 3GS )

    Some sounded ok and others sounded good, but did not get really all that loud. I mainly use it for when friends come by and what not, so i like to have my music pretty loud while also sounding good.

    Could anyone recomment any good speaker docks that work with the 3GS, Are loud AND sound good?

    Your best off just getting a pair of computer speakers or powered bookshelves and plugging your iPhone in via the headphone jack. It will probably be cheaper. What's the price range, because there are def. some very nice docks, but you are overpaying drastically.

    Yea I'm looking for something like this too. I need something loud enough to play outside and tick my neighbors off if at all possible, in about the $150-200 range if anyone knows of any. Basically something that can get LOUD and not distorted. :)

    Hmm... I'm not sure if these would be loud enough for outdoor use but, the LiveSpeakr's are pretty good.
    (They use the headphone jack)
    Looks like they are still on sale for $15 off. :]

    Bose sound dock portable plays very loud and is very durable. However it is pricey. I use a dock extender though as I have the otterbox case. It is not a problem.

    Sorry guys, had to bump this up. I'm looking for a boombox style docking station (for the beach) for ipod and iphones. What's recommended? Best Quality sound and LOUDEST :) Also, can't be too big and bulky, cant fill my entire suitcase up lol

    P.S, I found this: Logitech S315i and Logitech S715i. Not sure how good it is, can't find the speaker specs anywhere..
