Question Small Portable Speakers and a T-Amp

I'm interested in putting together a portable audio system for giving presentations that involve audio/video (DVD clips, etc.). Yes, the audio needs to sound good.

Currently I use off-the-shelf powered PC speakers, but I need to improve the sound quality. I also want to keep the size as small as possible. I'd be traveling with this setup.

I haven't been able to find a good off-the-shelf system, so I'm considering buying a Gen2 Sonic Impact T-Amp and a set of small speakers. Any suggestions on the speakers?

I've heard the JBL Control 1x speakers with another amp (not a T-Amp) and I was impressed with how they sound. I would pull the trigger on those, but they're just a bit too big at 9"x6"x5". Is there anything else out there I should be looking at which is smaller?

Thank you,

I think I'd find a gym bag, that you'd be comfortable carrying around, and find speakers that would fit it. T-amps are small enough that they would fit in any leftover space, with the wallwart to power them. 9x6x5 is probably the smallest you'd want to use, in any case, to have reasonable sound.

Now, we can do this the hard way, or... well, actually there's just the hard way.

Thanks Tom, I appreciate the advice. If anybody has any suggestions for other speakers to look at than the JBLs that are similar in size I'd be interested to know. It's always good to have options!
