Audio Shelf System Lives Again as Computer Speakers

Audio Shelf System Lives Again as Computer Speakers

Remember the home that used computer speakers to pump up the volume on their flat screen TV? Well, speaker swapping doesn't stop with PC blasters. For any of you who have an old audio shelf system, like those made popular in the late 90s and early 00s, you can repurpose those as well to help boost your audio quality either at your desk or in the living room.

The above is a shot of Nicholas Erwin's home office. In it, he uses a Philips audio shelf system (what type? we're trying to find out) which features speakers that can be detached from the main stereo component and placed on either side of his LCD. We're guessing that the guts of the system, which features the amp to power the speakers, rest underneath Nicholas' desk and that his computer is plugged in using a standard stereo/headphone jack cable.

This option, rather than using standard computer speakers, gives you an incredible amount of wattage in comparison. You can basically have a dance party at your desk or with the Club MTV dancers kicking it on your flat screen TV. Have any of you used this kind of solution to get more bass into your couch potato bootay?
