How to choose speaker for DIY iPhone speaker system Answered
I'm a bit of a tinkerer, but new to audio. I'm designing an ipod speaker dock from a Gigaware 40-303. Got the thing apart, but the left speaker is making a bad buzzing sound. I want to replace the speaker, but I'm unsure of what to look for. The specs for the system I got the circuit from are as follows:
output: 15 W x 2
Driver size: 3.0" x 2
signal to noise: greater than or equal to 65 dB
freq response: 80Hz-20KHz
rated load impedence: 4 ohms
power rating: 100-240V -50/6-hz, 1 amp
So I need to look for a 3" 15 watt 4 ohm speaker? I don't want to underload the circuit and draw too much power.
What about range? Mid, tweeter etc? Does that matter?
The original speaker is pictured below. The sticker on the back is the only identifying info. Thanks for any help you can provide.
