[NTLK] Replacement Speaker

Hi Folks.

Well after Paul's email with a revision to NewtonIM, I decided to dig my
newton out of the drawer and rip it completely apart.

I had scratched the screen a bit (due to dirt under a NuSheild screen
guard). I am neurotic about scratches (and dead pixels on LCDs) enough
that one will ruin my day and completly detract from my using the device.

So I had a better LCD I bought used on ebay. 9/10 quality, some minor
scratches. I installed it and all is well. It has a brighter backlight,
too! :) I also put a PocketPCTech's guard on it before installation so it
should be protected perminantly. They're great screenguards and I use
them on just about everything.

However, now I am having sound issues. (ones that I thought I had solved.)
 Sound is muffled and each time a sound is played, it is ended with a
little click or pop.

I suspect that the speaker is bad. Easy enough to test-- get at new
speaker and test it out before disassembling the whole thing to replace.

Does anyone know where I can buy a replacement speaker? Or at least the
specs on this speaker? I'm sure a modern mini speaker of the same
impedence would work just as well, if not better. Any suggestions? J&K
doesn't have them and nothing currently on eBay.

If its not the speaker, I may be buying a J&K mainboard next.

Thanks in advance.
