If the impedence was the same and it was rated for the same or similar
wattage as the Newton's amp, then there's no reason you couldn't.

An even cooler idea might be to replace the speaker with a slightly smaler
unit, cut a little bit out of the case and install a headphone jack that
would cut out the speaker once plugged in... meaning you could use
headphones without using the dongle..
