Default 2" driver selection help

I just built a Bluetooth speaker for my wife with a 20w amp and a alpair 7p. The box is approximately a 7 inch cube sealed. My wife has been complaining that it is not portable enough and at low volumes there is a bit of feedback.

She loves it when it is turned up though and we got a bunch of compliments at our Christmas party.

I am looking to build a smaller speaker. I already have a 10w amp and I am looking for the best lightest 2" speaker I can find in the 10-20 w range.

Size wise I am thinking a 3-4" cube sealed. price wise I am thinking $20-30

Does any one here have any thoughts or feedback on drivers in this range?

The 65mm square BMRs are worth a look.
I use 4 of them in ~2L ported, tuned ~150Hz. Big peak before rolloff gives the impression of having some bass.

A little distortion sets in early, but is tolerable until you're getting really loud.

Agree with chris the small BMRs are a good choice. They work well in a small cab and will provide adequate enough bass for a portable speaker.
These are the ones I used
RS Components

How about these? Think also of perhaps two drivers stacked like some of the Bose satellite modules.

Celestion has some absolutely fantastic little 2" line array drivers and Dayton has a little ND that has monstrous bass for it's size.
