The Atari Speaker

I would like to know if it is possible to easily turn the Atari internal speaker off and on, without opening the computer case.

Paul Stach

On the XL series, you can toggle the speaker off and on by holding down the Control key and pressing the F3 key. There is no easy way to turn off the internal speaker on the 400 or 800.
