Talking LOUD speakers to integrate into Leather jacket. Which drivers are suitable?

So I'm planning to integrate a stereo speakers into a solid leather jacket and I'm trying to find a good way of acheiving loud output whilst retaining low weight and power usage.

This, on steroids, in a leather jacket. Yeah.

So I think I've got the amplification side all set with a "Class T" TA2020 20W amp run by a 5A lithium-ion battery. Should be fine, but finding suitable drivers isn't as easy; I was thinking 3" full range drivers to simplify things, but I can't find any with high sensitivity and/or power handling specs. These looks nice though, have relatively high sens for small full-range drivers and are light at 150grams:

Any thoughts on how to achieve this? The perfect driver is light, low-profile and has high sensitivity and power handling. Any tweeter/woofer combinations that would do the job better than full-range drivers?

Hi Johan,

Neat idea. Just curious how you are going to achieve a "cabinet" for the bass notes.

I'd look for small car coaxial speakers, with highest Qts. (usually cheapest )

Those monacors are quite a good choice actually. They will require minimum "cabinet" volume and I believe someone on here said the cones were relatively waterproof
