I'm looking for a powered external speaker with a few watts. The caviat is to find a speaker that has an extra otput that is also powered.
The smaller the better, as this is for a mobile install.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

In case it matters, it's for a 996.

Go on Ebay and buy and old metal Motorola base radio speaker.

A major radio dealer suggested this to me and it works great, these old ones are better than the new slim ones per that radio dealer.

Previous posters said you can use small computer speakers as well.

Radio shack used to market a 5" ext. comm. spkr. which was amplified from a
12vdc source. these had an audio amp giving 10watts out for less than 1watt in.
they would turn on as soon as hearing a source.
They sounded great!
Some other hole in the wall radio shacks might still have one of these in stock.
they were about $30 Some one may be able to give you the model # I can't rmember....sorry.
Good luck.
