    Is it possible to mount car audio speakers in a pc case and to have them work like regular speakers? On a second note... would mounting Subwoofers (with rubber mounts of course) send too much vibration through the system and cause problems?

    I would be more worried about the magnetism from those speakers than the vibration.

    Is it just the Sub that I cannot have, or all car audio speakers?

    they all have big magnets in them.

    To be honest, you *should* be fine as long as it's all shielded properly, but I wouldn't want to risk it.

    You'd need an amp to power the speakers to make them work as well.

    yah penski is right. You would have to many openings in you case.if you had one it would be ok. Here are some sites if you want to build your own.

    Thanks for all the helpfull hints.

    I have seen computer audio speakers embedded inside a case. What are the maximum sizes/stats for all of these?

    "xgamer" has the right idea, but i would say just go and buy a decent pair of copmputer speakers (i know that you have some car speakers lying around thats why you asked) you may not want to spend the money but it is best for teh computer and it's parts,



    *side not* also the heat from the componets would hinder cooling of the system, so again i would recomend just getting real computer speakers
