I'd much prefer a separate speaker altogether for clarity and use one for my Icom 7000 Ham radio. You really don't need HI-Fidelity when your on a net, but something that has peak response in just the vocal range. A speaker that peaks from 200hz to 1khz is all you need as well as good enclosure.

Just want a nice clean desk. I have a remote head radio and keep the radio and power supply up and away from me to keep fan noise down a bit but also rules out the internal speaker. Right now I'm using a old TEAC desktop stereo speaker tucked behind the monitor. I needed to blow $20 at DX Engineering to get free shipping on a order and picked up one of their $20 external radio speakers. What a joke - my HT speaker sounds better. Guess you get what you pay for.

Better off just making your own external. A nice 2' to 4" full range speaker, like a take out from a car audio upgrade would be perfect. You could have someone 3d print a cabinet out or fab your own out of scrap plywood. Just be sure to stuff it with insulation. I'm toying with making one out these I pulled out the wife's Jeep.
