yes but i dont see why you would want to, the sound quality would be poor compared to speakers on the desk.

There is already a speaker in the case, the PC speaker! You know, the one that makes that beep when you turn on the PC?

Hello,

If you do put powerful speaker inside the case, make sure they're adequately magentically shielded first.

If you want any kind of decent soundstage at all then forget about it.

Don't even bother with it. The sound will be crap and you run the chance of screwing your harddrive and floppy! You'd have to (as mentioned earlier) shield it magnetically, which would cost too much.
