    Anyone know where I can get just the bare driver from the Apple pro speakers, soundsticks, or creature speakers? They are among the highest quality for such a small device.

    I want to add some low powered internal speakers to my PC. It's a shuttle SB61G that's kind of a G4 cube knockoff, but about the same size as the entire cube if you include the base. Hence, it has a little extra space inside. I just want to put those speakers in for low volume, low quality sound when I'm not using headphones or whatever. I feel like my keyboard, mouse, and monitor cables are already too much...


    Thanks in advance.

    e-bay for the speakers.

    Home Depot for the flat head screw drivers.

    Have a nice day.

    I think he was referring to a "speaker" driver, not a screwdriver. As for where to source one, I'd just buy one of the speakers you mentioned and strip the speaker driver out.

    Navy was telling acj to get the screwdrivers to disassemble the speaker to get at the driver.

    Thanks Dave, apparently some people still take apart Apple Pro Speakers with their teeth. Either that or legion was just trying to act smarter than everyone else... and failed.

    Well, I do prefer my teeth.

    However, I was hoping I could find just the part. Often times the drivers cost pennies compared to the final product. For example, you can buy the drivers found in the bose 901 speakers for $5. Bose charges a couple grand for the speaker.

    I might just have to resort to spending real money at ebay.

    Thanks for your help though.




    By the way, don't buy Bose.
