Use Hollowed-Out Books To Hide Ugly Speakers

Speaker systems are necessities for audiophiles, but it takes some clever design skills to make them look presentable.

Grathio Labs has an idea that hides speakers while making you appear to be a studious intellectual rather than someone who spends too much time watching movies. The post suggests hollowing out books and inserting speakers in real estate once occupied by the silly word-pages.

Check out the link for a step-by-step guide. Hint: In order to avoid the tedium of cutting each page, just remove all of them and replace the paper with foam of the same thickness.

Which thick, unreadable books do you think most deserve the speaker-insertion treatment?
