I had an old Atari 2600 that had stopped working and I couldn't just get rid of it, so I converted it to a portable media audio dock. The Atari console had holes in the top where speakers could have gone, but Atari never built it with speakers. I took an old set of computer speakers that had a subwoofer and mounted the raw speakers and amplifier inside the console. It took some "customization" to get the speakers to mount inside, heating and reshaping the plastic. I took a game I had and cut the top so there would be a space for the media device to rest in. The game cartridge was "Basic Programming" On the back there is a power button, volume control, audio input jack, sub out jack and a power cable. The original Atari controls and joystick are for aesthetic purposes only, they don't actually control anything. I shielded the amp to prevent rf interference. I also upgraded the speaker in the subwoofer to an Aura Sound 3" woofer.
Will work with any device that has a 3.5 mm analog audio output.
Sounds good, looks awesome!
The date stamp inside was Nov. 1980.
