What are your ghetto solutions for computer speakers?

I have headphones, but im getting tired of them.

I found this app on my iphone called: "Remote sound". Your computer streams the sound online, and your phone connects to it, and plays whatevers on there.

Its pretty ghetto, but its the best I can think of.

What other solutions do you guys have? lol

I'm using a $20 2.0 set. Don't need bass for what I'm doing.

I got these for $20 on Boxing Day. Obviously not crystal clear, but very serviceable.

I have a fairly nice set of speakers but I'm too lazy to actually plug them up, I just hooked them to the headphone jack of my monitor.

I had a friend who had a broken monitor with a mic built in that he used as a mic when he played wow, it was a big old CRT monitor next to his LCD. Not exactly a speaker story, but it was some pretty ghetto audio rigging.

I have a ~1W amp that I use at full volume on my headphones so that they get as loud as speakers.

Little CD/radio boombox. My laptop's left speaker has been half-dead for years, so I need extra volume from time to time.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.

Whats wrong with some cheap speakers? It's sad when people are too lazy to actually buy speakers.

My PC is hooked upto some small speakers for early/late in the day, a 400 stereo for during the day and 200 headphones for night time. Spare no expense for good sound!

I got a Logitech 2.1 setup for $35. It's surprisingly good for the price.
