It's a Ruby amp (LM386) on veroboard built into the enclosure of a desktop PC power supply. The speaker was salvaged from an old intercom unit, and actually doesn't sound too bad. Though a slightly larger real guitar speaker would fit, and probably sound a little better.

Here's the inside. I need to get some knobs on it. The speaker is wired with quick disconnects. An external speaker jack could be useful.

Excellent use of a repurposed enclosure!
